I have to echo the Delta Gamma love.

When I was a little girl, two of my cousins, sisters, were Delta Gammas at Wichita State. These girls were gorgeous--one was Jr. Miss Kansas--and they were lovely to their grubby, much younger cousin. I was always in awe of them. When I was in 1-3 grade, they were actives and they often spoke of sorority meetings and events, parties, homecoming, etc. and included me in the conversations as if I were their peer. I will never forget one of them going to her jewelry box and taking out her beautiful pearled DG pin and showing it to me. I asked if I could wear it, and she said, "No, you can hold it, but not wear it. Someday I hope you will have a sorority pin of your own to wear. Maybe you will even be my sister."

Oklahoma State didn't have a DG chapter, but I have always loved the anchor, the Gamma salute, Anchor Splash, etc and have a soft spot in my heart for all Delta Gammas.

Your cousins sound like lovely women to have included their younger cousin in their lives.
Thanks for the DG love!

Definitely one of the big nationals - I hate telling people what sorority I was in and having them say "Oh, so a local?" Yeah, no, but I get it.

Have dear friends who were ChiOs, TriDelts, Thetas, KKGs and DGs, all big strong nationals with great alumni networks. Would probably go with one of those. Maybe ChiO because I love owls or DG because I'm a swimmer.

My first choice would be Pi Phi, because it would be really cool to carry on my grandmother's legacy. Part of the reason I really liked Kappa was because I would have the Monmouth Duo connection with her!

For philanthropies, I'd join Alpha Gam (both my mother and my aunt have type one diabetes) or KD (as a lifelong Scout, supporting the GSA means a lot to me).

Assume that each chapter is equal in all respects except what you find on their (inter)national websites.
It would be difficult for me to choose between 25 totally equal groups; I cannot base my answer biased only toward what is on websites.

One forms opinions of, and chooses, their sorority during rush based on personal standards. My own standard would be to meet the NPC women in their homes and discover with whom I best relate. During my own rush, I most enjoyed interacting with the Kappa Delta and Chi Omega women.

Delta Gamma because the Delta Gamma Center in St. Louis is fantastic for families with visually impaired children and because I really like the Delta Gammas at Washington University.

Delta Zeta because the Painted Turtle Camp is awesome, and because a friend from high school was a Delta Zeta.

I would want to be in the same sorority as my daughter:

Alpha Chi Omega

I love their tagline:

Real...Strong...Women

and their philanthropy:

Domestic Violence Awareness
