The Basic symbols of all GLO's

Hey, I was looking for a website about the "basic facts" about all GLO's. And I couldnt find one. So I thought we could start a thread on it, and just say our colors, common nicknames and mascot(s), jewels, and anything else you want to say, just for fun. I'll start!

Alpha Omicron Pi

Nickname: AOPi (AOII)

Colors: Cardinal Red (and although not official colors, we use a lot of black and white)

Mascot: We don't officially have one, but the Panda bear is the "mascot" of choice.

Symbol: The deep red Jacqueminot Rose!!!

Jewel: The Ruby (pearls and diamonds are also widely used but unofficial)

Actually Alpha Omicron Pi was founded at Barnard College, though Barnard is a part of Columbia (and our founders' college degrees are from Columbia). The only national philanthropy is the American Juvenile Arthritis Organization. The AOII Foundation administers the grants and scholarships. . . .among other things

Phi Mu announced its founding March 4, and so celebrates that as Founder's Day.

Phi Mu no longer holds the Enchantress Carnation as its official flower; the flower is basically extinct, and was becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. Now we just use rose-colored carnations.
