(I realize my distant relatives are a stretch...but I have no other immediately family who are Greek! I hoping I can update this in about a year when my brother goes off to college!!)
Can't believe I never updated this when my brother joined!

My brother is a Delta Chi (Illinois).It's also worth updating that my other cousin in law also went Alpha Phi at Mizzou. And now for the reason I came to update: my cousin just went Alpha Gam at Coe College!

Congrats to your cousin lovespink! My Greek family is a lot smaller, but I blame that on not having any sort of in-laws to claim
Me: Alpha Delta Pi at Clemson
Mom: Alpha Delta Pi at Vermont
Grandma: local at her college in Ohio, called Iota Tau Lambda
Second cousin: Pi Beta Phi at Ohio State
Mom of Pi Phi second cousin was in a local at Otterbein
Second cousin on dad's side: Sigma Phi Epsilon at Rutgers

Sadly, I think that's it...I should ask my mom if she knows of any more Greek cousins floating about!

No heavy Greek involvement in my family. Grandparents were college educated, including a grandfather Ph.D. Grandmother attended what is now Longwood when the Farmville Four were there, but never joined. Curious as she was very involved with her DAR and garden club later on and always enjoyed women's groups.

Anyway....
Me-Chi Omega
Mother- Phi Mu
Brother -Alpha Tau Omega
Cousin- Kappa Alpha Theta
Cousin- Gamma Phi Beta
Husband- Phi Beta Kappa! Don't know if that counts, though!

I'm the first one to go to college on my mom's and dad's side, so it's just me. My sister wasn't interested, even though there was an AOII chapter at her school and I wrote her a rec, and my brother wasn't interested in being greek either. I don't have kids, and my one niece is not the sorority type (she acts like she's twelve instead of seventeen) so I think I'm the beginning and end of the line for now.

My mother: Alpha Kappa Alpha
A late great-aunt: Alpha Kappa Alpha

My sister and cousin and I are third-generation AKAs, which is kind of cool.

I have some second cousins (once removed? I think?) on my dad's side who are in Delta Sigma Theta, as is their mother; as well as some other distant cousins on my mom's side that I don't know. I don't know of any men in my family in Greek organizations except for one distant cousin I met at a long-ago family reunion whose name and organization I don't remember; I'd never met him before and I've never seen him again.

I don't have any children of my own, but I am busily indoctrinating some young goddaughters and cousins, heh.

Thumbs up

I'm so jealous of this thread. I'm the first in my family to go to college much less go Greek. My nephews are in college but didn't join a fraternity. Hope when my sister's daughter goes to school, she joins a sorority. I think the niece (bro in law's daughter) that went Theta (Alabama) decided to go through rush at the last minute and originally didn't plan on it.

Me: Alpha Xi Delta
Hubby: Pi Kappa Phi
Niece: Kappa Alpha Theta

Me: Sigma Delta Tau
Mom: Sigma Delta Tau
(We're members of the same chapter and my mom was at my initiation, which was easily one of the best moments in my 4 years there.)
Dad: Arnold Air Society
Mom's brother: Alpha Epsilon Pi
Dad's brother: Kappa Kappa Psi (marching band fraternity)

I also have 14 'step cousins' through my mom's boyfriend. Only 12 of the 14 are in college or have graduated college, and I only know of 4 of them being Greek. Three were TKEs (all at the same school) and one is in ADPi.
My sister is at Kent State and is possibly going through recruitment in the fall. Fingers crossed.
