Dang! Thanks. I knew that was on here somewhere, but class took precedence over GC searches. (I know, I know)

That post says SK was founded as a fraternity. Which I've never seen any evidence of before. I believe it was simply Sigma Kappa at first. Though, I've never seen anything that said when sorority was officially added either.

It appears my point was previously discussed. http://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/sh...6&postcount=61

There is not a NPC group named Zeta Beta Zeta.
There is not a NPHC group named Zeta Beta Zeta.
There is not a NIC group named Zeta Beta Zeta.

As for local groups, I couldn't say.


eta - never having watched "Greek", I didn't realize this was already a "fictional sorority". I'll bet someone has already appropriated the letters for a local! (Wonder if the production company thought to trademark it?)

We were the first - perhaps that is what you were thinking .

Only got through the first few pages, but I just want to confirm that little detail. Alpha Lambda Tau was a mostly southern based fraternity of 8 chapters. In 1946 they announced that they were splitting up. 5 of those 8 chapters joined Tau Kappa Epsilon. (They were University of Maryland, North Carolina State, Auburn, Louisiana Tech, and Tri-State College in Indiana.)

At the current time I believe Alpha Sigma Kappa - Women in Technical Studies is the only ASK. However, over time it has become apparent to me that there were at least 2 other ASK's prior to our founding in 1989. I think they were both honor societies. There may have been more, but I have not been able to find anything about them. (Have seen pins on ebay from these other groups as well.)

Interesting -- I'd love to know what happened to my Dad's chapter of Alpha Lambda Tau. He was President of the University of Chattanooga chapter in 1939.

So I just did a random google search of "Alpha Sigma Tau, house" to see if I could find pictures of any AST houses from other chapters. I came across this photo album.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://lh4.ggpht.com/_lN_tpMS0D4s/R9gl9scZDZI/AAAAAAAAABc/yCToeUUYQOQ/Furhmann.jpg&imgrefurl=http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/CIky45Q-BZudxIwKYPLP-w&h=483&w=278&sz=17&hl=en&start=1&usg=__lRuKLva9_C 4sCI3nizHafovCmyA=&tbnid=vMHFjVn9rFKN8M:&tbnh=129& tbnw=74&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpsi%2Bchapter%2Bfounder%26gbv%3D2%26h l%3Den

http://thetachiuw.org/History_1915.htm

Turns out it's an album of the start of the Psi chapter of the Theta Chi Fraternity at the University of Wisconsin. It originally started as the Aota Club in 1915, and in 1916, they became the Alpha Sigma Tau Fraternity and were known as such for 2 years.

I love looking at the pictures, too. My favorite is the fact that in 1957 the chapter had a Playboy Party, and it was actually written about IN Playboy! haha

What a neat find! Thanks ASTalumna06!

The first photo is so cool! (I can tell exactly where he's standing too....)

Those are such cool pictures! I love old stuff like that and I def have a soft spot for those Theta Chis!

Ok, I can't take credit for this (my ex did it):

There are so many sororities and fraternities out there. The one I'm in is really new so when they came up with a name they just used 4 letters. We get some looks for it and ordering stuff online is a pain, but we don't have to worry that we've copied someone. Perhaps more groups should start trying that.

Right. But the real irony is:

The “Sigma” in our name is meant to represent “sisters of,” making us the sisters of ΑΕΠ to honor their contributions in creating this sorority.
