Like Rudey, I'll assume you mean Alpha Epsilon Phi - I'm not quite prepared to have the surgery necessary to be eligible for membership in AEPi

Our jewel (which is not listed above) is the pearl.

Alpha Xi Delta's national philanthropy is actually "Choose Children." We raise money for and give our time to any organization which supports children.

Also, when most Alpha Xi's on my campus write our letters out we end up writing "AXiD" because most non-Greeks don't recognize the Greek letter "Xi"!

Actually, the red rose is our only official flower. The white rose is frequently used since white is one of our colors...but it's not official.

Might also add that Sigma Alpha Iota boasts the following:

195 active college chapters
116 alumni chapters
97,868 total initiated members

Yeah I'm a Geek Greek too.

You are correct CC. Here it is. (Rudey posted it too)http://www.geocities.com/ariesrising...ionalorgs.html

Barbara, I realize it's from the Green Book, but trust me, some of it's wrong (I don't think I'm a member of Alpha Sigma Sigma Alpha ).

AlphaSigOU, I just have to say "AWWWWWW" to your philanthropy. Fuzzy puppies.

Although the information above is correct, it fails to mention that our lovely jewel is the PEARL & that we have THREE national philanthropies:
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF)
The Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation
AND
Anorexia Nervosa & Associated Disorders (ANAD)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to ALL!!!!

LOL You did great on everything else though! Don't feel bad...until recently I thought the pearl was our official jewel...then I found out we don't HAVE an official jewel. I don't know why the pearl isn't though!
