It was a fluke that I came across it. I was searching for something else and it was in the "suggested feed" so I clicked it. I thought it was a really unique, historical tradition for the W&M NPC.

I'm glad I shared it here and so many others enjoy watching it.

Just joined the forum, and this was one of the first threads I read as the title caught my attention and immediately reminded me of my days at W&M. I honestly teared up as all the words came to my lips, and I haven't sung them in over 20 years! It was an honored tradition to sing. We stood in front of our houses, but those houses outside the court filled in from the walkways, always in the same location. My mom, a W&M alumna as well (we joined different sororities), graduated in '70 and they had upbeat porch routines, not the toast. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

It's a great and unique tradition. Thank you for sharing!

The world is changing. I thought it would be a nice thing to bring back up especially for the newbies going through VR.

And here's to all women of Greek fraternity,
Whatever creed or motto
Whatever they may be
Our strength is our country, our God, democracy,
May we never be found wanting in allegiance to these three.

And here's to all the Phi Mus,
Who wear the heart in hand
The rose and white ribbon
That binds us in our bond
From the lion take our courage,
Our strength and honor too
May we always have the memory
Of the love that means PHI MU!

And here is to Kappa Theta
The colors black and gold
Our kite is what unites us
With sisters young and old.
Our stars, brightly shining,
Will guide us night and day
From KAPPA ALPHA THETA
Our hearts will never stray!

And here's to Kappa Delta
The diamond shield we wear
Throughout our lives in sisterhood
Our friendships we will share.
Our strength is our emerald,
Our beauty our white rose,
Through TA KALA DIOKOMEN
Our Love ever grows!

And here's to Gamma Phi
Whose crescent shines so bright,
With the pink carnation,
And browns of dark and light.
Our love is for our sisters,
And loyal we will be.
In GAMMA PHI BETA
True friendships you will see!

And here's the Pi Phi Angels
in wine and silver blue
The friendship that we share is
Of sisters ever true.
Our hopes and aspirations,
We aim our arrows high.
We will always be united
In our PI BETA PHI!

And here's to the Deltas
The silver, gold and blue.
Our never ending circle,
Our pearl and pine tree too.
Our sisterhood is special
True friends we'll always be
Your happiness is our hope
In love for Deltas three!

And here's to Chi Omega
The cardinal and the straw
And to the white carnation,
The fairest flower of all
And to the skull and crossbones
The letters and the owl
May we never ______ broken(?)
Our BELOVED SACRED VOWS!

And here's to Kappa Gamma
And to the key of gold
Unlocking love and loyalty
________- unfold?
The beautiful and good
To us will always be
The blue and blue of friendships true
Of K K G!

And here's to the lyre
With pearls and friendships true
Our sisterhood we cherish
In everything we do
Together we will honor
The sacred vows that tie
And ever we will seek the heights
In the name of ALPHA CHI!

And here's to Delta Gamma
Her anchor and her shield
Her loyalty united
And friendships ever sealed
Our cream rose is our beauty
Our bronze, pink, and blue
And to our own dear DELTA G
We always will be true!

And here's to all women of Greek fraternity,
Whatever creed or motto
Whatever they may be
Our strength is our country, our God, democracy,
May we never be found wanting in allegiance to these three.
I highlighted the first part, mostly because I'm wondering about the tone of today's recruitment. Will this still be valid? I hope so!
