Huh. So that is why Chi O's chapters are named the way they are. I'd always idly wondered but never really thought too hard on it. TIL

One of my coworkers, a man, came to work today wearing a sorority t-shirt. I asked him about it, and he told me a crazy story. I will not specify the sorority, except to say that it's an NPC sorority and it's not AEPhi.

One night when he was in college, he'd gone out drinking with a group of friends, mostly women. He has very little memory of the night - but he was told that, within 15 minutes of having a few sips of alcohol, he was plastered. He thinks he was roofied. He woke up the next morning on the couch in the apartment a few of his friends shared, and he found he was wearing this sorority shirt. He had apparently thrown up in every room of the apartment and ruined his own clothing in the process. It seems his friends were understanding and took care of him.

He was very forthcoming with the story. All I could say was "Oh my God." A lot. And then I changed the topic.

Schools here are in study mode; I've observed both Sigma Kappa and Chi Omega t-shirts being worn today at the library.

I know this isn't the exact right thread for this; but, I saw some ornaments on sale for 70% off at Macy's Home Store that the Alpha Xi Deltas might appreciate.

Noticed a dual-school license plate cover at the mall promoting both Notre Dame and St Louis University, which reminded me I'd seen several dual-Divine Nine Group license plate covers in the past (each promoting both a fraternity and a sorority upon it).

(sorry for the double post, it's been awhile...)

On a recent warm day, a woman at the park wore her greek letter shirt while pushing a child in a stroller. I could read the "Alpha Sigma..." part of her shirt, but could not decipher whether the final letter was a "Tau" or a "Sigma" (and the greek letters were spaced far enough to the left to know there would have been a third letter).

Disneyland seems to be the one place besides a university campus where I usually spot GLO letters on a jacket, sweatshirt or t-shirt. It also seems to me that it's mostly NPC group members that are enjoying their time at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Last letter could have been Sigma or could have been Alpha. Alpha Sigma Sigma isn't something that I'd expect except as a bad joke.

Driving home yesterday, the car in front of me had a Gamma Phi Omega baseball cap seen through the rear window. There isn't a chapter even remotely near here. And then a DPhiE drove up next to us.

Ach, my bad! So sorry! I DID mean Alpha, not Sigma. Perhaps a moderator could somehow correct/change the wording of my original 2/28/18 post? Thank you if you are able to do so.

Haha, this is so fantastic. Especially because I read this a few times and never caught the error. Just read it as AST vs ASA.

Spotted as I was passing through several airports for spring break:
Old Dominion Alpha Xi Delta and her boyfriend wearing an ODU FSL pullover
Several Virginia Tech Chi Omegas
A woman wearing a Delta Gamma vest
Guy in a Phi Kappa Psi hoodie (yelling SPRING BREAK WOO for a snapchat video as they left the airport)
Theta Chi-Sigma Kappa function shirt
Penn State Phi Sigma Rho shirt
Highways adopted by FGCU Phi Delta Theta and Zeta Phi Beta when I was in Fort Myers

Saw a car with a Kappa Kappa Psi sticker parked in front of the building next to mine.

I saw a homeless dude rocking an NPC org's spirit jersey this morning near the train station. I had to do a double take as to what I saw! Not gonna name the org because I don't want to offend anyone.

I seem to remember a thread about this from a long time ago...

Not about this person in particular, of course, but about a homeless man wearing an NPC's letters.
