Speaking of departmental 'fun' activities, you should all wear your NPC Badges With Pride on NPC's 2017 Badge Day next March!

If your current workplace policies won't allow you to wear them, you have nine months to attempt a policy change. Get the men at your workplace on board by asking them to wear their fraternal badges, too.

I always mark my calendar in mid-February so I remember to locate my badge before the big day.

Great idea! I always wear mine on Badge Day, but I haven't seen any others wearing badges, men or women. I don't think Badge Day is well known unless a person continues to be active with their Greek org like I am, but I'll make sure the rest of them know for next year!

At a resort in Playa del Carmen, I saw a young woman in a Chi Omega shirt.

Last night I was looking up episodes of this old Nickelodeon show I used to watch, 'My Brother and Me'. I was looking for a particular part/quote to send to my brother, I started this episode, and I noticed on the wall of their living room Greek items.. banners, paddles, etc. for Omega Psi Phi and Delta Sigma Theta! And of course this is a TV sitcom and furnishings never change, so they're in all the episodes.

It's only about 30 seconds into this episode when you see them:

It's funny how you miss stuff like this as a kid when you don't know what it is, but then discover it much later on.

Flying out of Raleigh this morning, I saw lots and lots of pink and green and ivy leaves... Alpha Kappa Alphas headed to Atlanta for Boule. Excited, happy, beautiful women...

My sister was just home for a visit and she and our cousin (both Zetas and chapter sisters for 2 overlapping years) took their kids out for ice cream. There was a group of three friends waiting in line just ahead of them, one of whom was wearing a Zeta sweatshirt. So, they excitedly introduced themselves, but it turns out she wasn't a Zeta and had "borrowed the sweatshirt from one of her friends." So, they thought one of the other two friends was the Zeta...but no, none of them were. So, my sister and cousin went from being to being .

"Kappa Beta Gamma Alumnae" on a car's license plate holder. At least alumnae wasn't spelled alumni.

Be on the lookout for Kappa Beta Gamma symbols in the Orlando, FL area the first week of August 2016, as their Centennial Celebration will be in full swing!

I just started a new job last week. My first interview was an online interview with a fellow alumnus from MIT.

Another new hire just joined the company today. His manager sent out an email introducing him and mentioning that he, too, had gone to MIT.

So I checked out the new hire in our alumni directory. Turns out he's an alumnus of Phi Beta Epsilon, a local fraternity founded back in 1890. And he'd been referred by the man who did my first interview - who, guess what, is also a PBE.

All three of us also share the same major (CS), although I graduated *mumble* years before they matriculated. They overlapped by two years.

The PBEs I knew while I was in school were gentlemen one and all. It seems that has largely held true since then.

I had an Alpha Phi sighting at lunch today... LOL!! No idea where this guy got his fanny pack, or why he's wearing it out and about. He was with some other tattooed hipsters, so maybe he considers it "ironic".

Socks and sandals and jorts. How unique. My grand father wears that while mowing the lawn.

Saw a woman in an Alpha Omicron Pi t-shirt while at an event for those into home brewing beer in Raleigh this past weekend.
