I'm reading the novel Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld, and so far the main character has pledged Theta at Missouri and attended a barbecue at the Delta Upsilon house there.

That's so crazy! I just finished reading Sisterland on Monday.

I'm such a fan of hers. Prep is just fantastic, and for a while after I finished American Wife, it felt weird not being in the main character's world. (I read about six pages in bed each night before turning out the light, so my books tend to last a while.)

Students from GSS and DPhiE tutor kiddos at my school. A DST assisted me at voting yesterday and I saw AOPi letters at the grocery store.

I spotted a couple of Sig Pis in Thailand a couple of years ago, at a night market in Chiang Mai; one of them had a tank top with the fraternity letters. Then I saw them again at the airport flying back to Bangkok, but they were on a different flight. They were from UCSB.

I probably should have expected it, but I just got back from a cruise and turns out it's Spring Break for a lot of schools. I saw some kids with my alma mater's clothes on at the airport, and I started talking to them; one of the girls was a member of my sorority--same chapter. That was so exciting! Then I got on the ship and it was Greek central. I won't name the school, but my sorority was also well represented on board. Some of the young women were very nice; there were a few in line behind me and I said the magic word and they were very excited because they had never had an alumnae do that before, and they wanted to take pictures with me. They hugged me every time they saw me on the ship! I met some of their chapter sisters elsewhere on the ship---they wore their letters all the time--and they weren't quite as friendly. But hey, they're 21 and on spring break, so...There were many other GLOs represented. For the most part, they were all very nice and well behaved and represented their organizations well. (Wow--I sound like such an old lady! )

^^^ We took a Norwegian fjord cruise in the summer of 2011 and I met a then-current student wearing a Michigan sweatshirt. She was an engineering major (so was I) and was on board with her parents. We had a great conversation...small world!

^^^ two up: This time of year, old 1960's to early 1990's Spring Break photos are all over the internet. Very few show students in greek-lettered gear, but I have seen an Alpha Xi Delta shirt (no alcohol in photo, and not taken in a bar).

I'm currently in Copenhagen, Denmark accompanying my husband on a business trip. I saw a girl with a tote bag that had Delta Delta Delta letters on it in the Copenhagen airport.

While traveling back to school I was wearing my gamma phi rain jacket (I remember how a few of you guys say you wear some of your letters while you're traveling in hopes of meeting a fellow sister/brother!). This young alumnae came up to me and asked where I was a gamma phi at, turns out she's a gamma phi of the zeta beta chapter

As I was driving back to school yesterday I saw Alpha Phi, KD, and Alpha Chi car stickers, a Chi O front license plate, and a Delta Chi license plate holder. Of course, now that I'm back at school and going to the house regularly, I get to see Kappa letters all the time!

Sad to report I saw no AOIIs while at WDW, and both DH & I were looking! I saw all you listed above plus Thetas, Kappas, ADGs, AXOs, Pi Phis, SKs, SXs, TKEs, and a long-awaited meeting with a SDT!
