greeks in the family

Please forgive me if there is a thread on this already, but I couldn't find anything that I was looking for in the gazillion threads that came up when I searched under "family."

My little brother, who will enter the UM-Rolla this fall, just signed a bid card for Kappa Alpha Order.

He and I are the first greeks in our families, alongside cousins who are a Sigma Pi at UKy and a Theta Xi at Georgia Tech.

It's just kinda neat!

There's a thread that asks where everyone is a legacy at. Everyone listed all the greeks in their family.
Mine: (keeps on growing as I find out more people who were greek)

Grandpa: AEPi
Uncle: AEPi
Uncle: Kappa Alpha
Aunt: AEPhi
Aunt: DPhiE
Cousin: Kappa Delta

I think there's more but I haven't researched enough.

I am the first person in my family to join a GLO. No one else in my family has gone to a school with a greek system... so I got to be the pioneer. Well, my hypothetical future daughter gets to be an AEPhi legacy...

My aunt was an AZD at Nebraska and the only Greek connection I currently have.
I being the oldest of the grandkids have set a precedent. My twin cousins who are now in fourth grade now want to follow their legacy in AZD at Nebraska after coming to my initiation banquet and then touring their mother's old house. My little brother will also probably rush now too (I'm gonna make him rush no matter where he goes ) and if he ends up following me to Nebraska, my Mom is going to make him be a Beta!

I am also the first Greek in my family. I think that it's pretty cool. My great Grandfather belonged to a secret society but that's the extent.

I am the only Greek in my family. My little sister rushed (at the time there was only one national on her campus alongside two locals, so it was informal rush) a national sorority and was not given a bid. Apparently a couple of nationals colonized her senior year and if I had known I would have made her rush but I didn't find out until later.

None of my aunts, uncles, cousins, anybody was Greek. I'm not likely to have kids, either, so no legacies.

I am a direct legacy for KKG!! My sister was a charter member of her chapter at Georgia Southern and 10 years later when I went through recruitment--I pledged Kappa! It has been an honor to share the bonds of Kappa with my real sister!
