Just to step in for a moment Ladies, but We Guy's are also protective of our Badges. I have sent my Total Collection to an Ex G Cer who has, been helping me to sell them! To Brothers only and never on e-bay!

As I mentioned before, I collected Badges/Pledge Pins from all of THE GREEK's on Campus when I started My Local Beta Chi in 1965.

Sorority's: ASA, SSS, AGD, ADPi , (Since Closed)

Fraternity's: STG, SX, PKA, PSE, TKE, (Has Closed).

Just doing to keep History Alive!!

I’m so glad this thread was resurrected - I was recently very ill and read the whole thing cover to cover. While many of the images have sadly gone into the ether, I have loved seeing those that remained.

I’ve recently started my own mini collection and you all have inspired me and kept me going when it got pretty rough.

My only other comment would be the lack of wearing Badges. I do not know if the woman still wear them as much as they did when I was in school so may years ago? Can you tell me?

Nope. They donít have the same attachment to the badges, for the most part. Wearing pledge pins to class is considered ďhazingĒ, and it took 11 months for my DDís class to receive their badges. Thx Herff Jones! They donít routinely wear them to chapter meetings if their chapter doesnít dress in pin attire every week. And more casual dress standards all around equates to fewer opportunities to wear it. Itís a shame.

Yep...sadly, I wear mine when I'm at Convention every other year and then we normally have at least one or two occasions during the year to wear them. Not a daily or even weekly basis. Sad too because I think our badge it beautiful.

So terribly sad!

I have said a thousand times that I would rather see a sorority pin worn respectfully with casual clothing than sitting in a jewelry box. Our sorority elders worn them in their hair, for heaven's sake!

What Would Our Founders Say to THAT Noise? Is that a new NPC mandate?

And where, other than during rituals, would it NOT be considered hazing for women to wear their new member pins?

Are some women refusing to wear sorority pins/badges because they are ashamed of what others perceive the NPC and/or their sorority represent?

This year, for the first time in about seven years, I observed NO women and NO students wearing their NPC Badges during Badge Day last week.
