This is a hard question. Well, if I went only by the 7 sororities at CSULB, if I hadn't gone SK, I would have chosen either Delta Zeta or Tri Delta.

Delta Zeta because I found them extremely friendly, funny, and to be perfectly shallow, IMO, they had the most beautiful house.

Tri Delta because I knew many of them from classes and they were fun to hang out with.

If I chose out of the 25 remaining GLO's (SK not included), then I would choose Alpha Gamma Delta.

I absolutely love the AGD mission statement: Inspire the Woman. Impact the World.

1. Delta Gamma - It was the other house that I preffed and I loved all of the women I met there. The house was beautiful and being a beach girl, I loved the nautical theme.

2. Pi Beta Phi - Their house was spectacular, I loved all of their songs during rush (silly, I know), the women were very active around campus, and I liked their colors.

I always thought Kappa Kappa Gamma was awesome... don't know why since I knew nothing about greek life really... guessing it's just 'cuz I read it somewhere. I did think it was cool that A Xi had considered merging with KKG prior to going national.

Kappa Delta since my cousin is a KD and we didn't have a chapter where I went to school.

My alma mater has Pi Phi, Theta, and A Phi and all were great choices I think. Chi O, Gamma Phi, and Tri Delta were also there at one point in time as well and are great choices.

I love the crown of Zeta Tau Alpha- who wouldn't!!?

Kappa Kappa Gamma and Kappa Alpha Theta. I knew about both before college and although neither were on my campus I've always been impressed by them.

I would probably go Chi O - I believe them to have a strong sisterhood and have a good national reputation. On my campus they were a large chapter, very diverse, and known for good scholarship (and I was a bit of a nerd in h.s.). I don't really care for their colors but I love their badge and that whole dead owl thing has always intrigued me... Plus their letters look cool together!

As for symbols, colors, etc. I would go KD, Pi Phi, or KKG. I love all of their badges and colors and the fleur de lis is so easy to find in jewelry items!

Alpha Chi Omega is obviously my favorite and I would never change, but...

Phi Mu, even though we don't have them on our campus. For some reason, I've always felt a strong connection towards Phi Mu and I love their history, symbols, and values. I also recently found out that our house is the old Phi Mu house!

I loved Tri Delta during recruitment... I feel like Tri Delta is a wonderful organization and was the first sorority I ever knew of. I think they are probably the most recognized sorority. Their motto is absolutely beautiful.

I also somehow feel a strong connection to ADPi, even though they are not on our campus. I love their motto - probably my favorite of all the NPC groups.

But I also love the 7 other NPCs at my school - Chi O, Tri Delta, DG, Gamma Phi, Theta, Kappa, and Pi Phi - and I would have been honored to find my home at any of them.
Sleep tonight pretty girl and dream of Alpha Chi Omega!

I absolutely love being a Pi Phi. I'm still an undergrad active, but I know that this is going to be the best decision I made throughout all of college -- and I'm not nearly done!

Since I went COB and was somewhat able to "choose" what sorority recruitment I wanted to take part in...

I STRONGLY considered Phi Mu (I went to Pi Phi recruitment the first night and planned on going to Phi Mu the next night... needless to say, I fell instantly in love with Pi Phi!) but I love Phi Mu's motto, their colors, their symbol, and philanthropy. Plus, every Phi Mu on my campus is a total sweetheart, and I had a few friends in there.

And if there was a chapter I would have liked Kappa Kappa Gamma. I love their symbols, flower, jewel, colors, etc. Plus, they are the other half of the Monmouth Duo so that adds to it.
When you meet a Pi Phi, you realize immediately that there's something unique about her...

Very good question the OP posed!

I would have to say:

Alpha Chi Omega- I love their colors, badge, and symbols! I had many Alpha Chis as close friends during college and they were always classy and one of the most well respected groups on campus. They were also founded at Depauw, and I have always considered them a sister sorority!

Kappa Delta- When I first went to college, KD was fairly new on campus, and I quickly became friends with many of the founding sisters. They were wonderful representations of their sisterhood! I also LOVE their colors! Green is my absolute favorite color, and the white rose is my favorite flower.

Gamma Phi Beta- There was not a chapter of Gamma Phi at my campus, but my aunt is a proud sister of Gamma Phi Beta. I have always admired these ladies, and gotten to know many of you on GC!

Alpha Delta Pi- I love their history, colors, and symbols! Also my other aunt is a proud Alpha Delta Pi!

Of course, I will always and forever be a sister of the Black & Gold

Sigma Kappa would probably win out because my mom was one! I used to love to read the magazine when I was little and pretend I was in a sorority.

Otherwise, Kappa Kappa Gamma! I love their badge, their letters, their symbols, etc. I also really wanted to go Kappa at the other school I was considering before I decided to go to Samford.

Tri Delta has my favorite badge of all, so it's another contender. One of my best friends at another school is a tri delt, too.

Zeta is runner up... I just love the crowns and strawberries! I loved them during rush too! What a great group of girls.

My choices:

Phi Mu, because of many of the reasons that Honey and other ADPis have listed, and because I am simply so familiar with them. Also, their chapters do extremely well in just about every Southern campus they are on.

Kappa Delta. They truly are "KD ladies" and I had many KD friends in school. Love their Girl Scout work, and again, their Southern chapters are very strong everywhere. (I am SO excited that they were chosen to colonize at Georgia College and State University-they will be a perfect addition to the already very classy and strong Panhellenic group there.)

Zeta Tau Alpha. Strong Southern chapters, philanthropy, and yep, gotta love those crowns! (When I was in school, early seventies, I don't remember them doing much with the crowns at all-they were more known for the strawberry thing.)

I will also throw in Kappa Kappa Gamma-colors, symbol, strong down South-(and don't we all just love the sound of "Kappa Kappa Gamma"?) And Alpha Xi Delta, because of receiving my daughter's Quill here at the house-they seem to have a very different "slant" than ADPi and others I am familiar with. I mean this in a complimentary way, obviously, and I can't put my finger on what it is exactly, nor explain it. But it's all good!

(repeating my sisters)

If I hadn't gone ADPi and if there was a Phi Mu chapter in AZ, I have a feeling I would have gone Phi Mu. I love everything about Phi Mu.

Now imagining myself at 18 based on superficial reasons I would have wanted to have gone the following:

Based on their badges: Theta, DG, ZTA, Phi Mu & KD
Based on their colors: Gamma Phi, DZ

At 18 another huge thing for me was the cost of each chapter, so that would have weighed into my decsions

Figure out what kind of sorority you're interested in first.

Kappa AlphaTheta - Two of my cousins who I am extremely close to are Thetas, so I grew up around lots of black & gold, kites and pansies =-). I love everything about Theta, and I wonder what would have happened if I had gone to a school with a chapter

Alpha Delta Pi - I love everything about ADPi from the colors to the mascots, the badge to the philanthropy. The girls in the chapter at my school are also some of the sweetest, most amazing girls I've ever met. It would be an honor to call them sister.

Zeta Tau Alpha, Kappa Delta and Delta Gamma are also ones I'd love to pledge, based on superficial resons alone. I love Zeta & KD's hand signs they do in pictures, and or course the colors, symbols and badges of those groups.

But, I know without a doubt I was born to be a Kappa Kappa Gamma and I wouldn't trade wearing my golden key for anything!
