Hahaha. Very true about CMM.

I loved this video, I especially liked how at the end of the video they all calmly walk back to (I presume) their chapter houses instead of going crazy and stuff... even after they performed it so well =) Heck, I know I would have turned to my sisters and gone HEY THAT WAS SOOOO AWESOME YAA! haha

Has anyone ever discovered what the hand motion means? I absolutely love the idea of each sorority using the same motion, then walking off with the hand in the same position. I can't help but wonder if it goes back to something from Phi Beta Kappa.

Confession: When I'm feeling down, I sometimes play that video!

My understanding was always that it was supposed to be a toasting motion, i.e. picture someone swinging a stein

It does look like that. I was just looking for an alternate explanation!

Tried my hand at a verse for Alpha Xi Delta...


"And here's to Alpha Xi Delta in double blue and gold,
Our Quills in our hands and o'er our hearts we hold.
The sisterhood of women of our Fraternity
Inspiring each other since 1893!"

And yes we walk very calmly into the houses, it is actually an infraction at the school to be loud after the toast!
I think the walking calmly at the end of the "toast" adds an air of elegance and mystery.

I love both quotes!

There are so many times I wonder how different my life would have been had I gone to W&M. FWIW, I had a full scholarship but my parents thought (correctly) that I was too young & immature to accept it. I went to Pitt, supposedly for a year, but pledged ADPi, which isn't at W&M, even though I was a Kappa legacy. *sigh* Things that you wonder, years after the fact!

I gotta say that I love the song & the spirit of all the chapters singing; however, I kind of hate the arm motion. It looks weird! Doesn't look like swinging a tankard to me, the motion starts too high. A toasting motion goes up, but this looks like just right to left. I don't think sorority women swinging tankards is a good message to send anyway...

Maybe the motion was modified over the years? *uneducated guess*

On campus my school is gaining more sororities on campus and I would be so happy to go through a real rush. Maybe as a greek community we can come up with our own tradition.

Anyone can think of making a Phi Sigma Sigma verse?

How neat! This would be a really cute way for the PXs to do a reveal with this kind of theme too. Great spirit! Love it!
