I spied a ZETA ball cap on an older lady exiting Village Inn as the band arrived for post-game wind-down on Friday night. (Not my letters but I’m always on the lookout Panhellenically)

Not actual greek letters, but the basic/general shape of an A, O, and TT in the triangular, circular, and square pillows lined-up left-to-right on the Petrie's living room couch in a few episodes of the old Dick Van Dyke Show (the pillows do change positions episode to episode).

I parked across from a vehicle with a Q PSI PHI license plate at the grocery store today.

Perhaps they are transfer students: Chi Omega, and Pi Beta Phi, greek letter shirts on two seperate female students walking thru campus. We don't have either group here, and we're not open for expansion, so that's DEFINITELY finding letters I didn't expect to see!

On the New England Patriots (@patriots) Instagram account earlier today, they had a post of "Player Arrivals" prior to the game, and Jakob Johnson was wearing his Omega Psi Phi jacket.

A link with all arrivals was also posted on Facebook (slide 9)

I was watching the news the other day and they were doing an interview, and behind the woman being interviewed I couldn't help but notice Sigma Gamma Rho's letters behind her.

I have a new physician because mine moved out of state. My new doctor was wearing an AKA sweater! I didn't get a chance to bring it up, but I'm sure it will come up at a later date!

For anyone who follows Humans of New York on social media, there's a 13-part story today, which mentions that the guy, Tripp, is a member of a fraternity. In the pics in post #2, you can barely see the Pi Kappa Phi letters on his tshirt.

Welp, that story didn't end how I thought it would...

no kidding. I'm re-reading and looking for the red flags. Yikes.

HONY is a "guilty pleasure" of mine. Not a secret now, right? Always a good read IMO and the writing is decent.

Women carrying a greek letter Sigma Kappa flag in a holiday parade. No, it's colors weren't green, orange and white for the occasion, just the simple SK maroon with a pinkish lavender tone.

I found out yesterday that another woman in my synagogue's choir is an AEPhi.

We were doing a special Sabbath service last night, with a guest jazz band. There were several points where people (including choir members) wanted to applaud - the band, our guest conductor, etc. - but my music was in one hand, so I did the "sorority snap".

After the service, she came up to me and said, "I noticed you doing the sorority snap! I did the same thing back when I was in college, in my sorority."

I asked her which sorority, and she said AEPhi. She went to Indiana.

I was actually pretty surprised to meet another AEPhi in New Orleans. (And I'll just quietly gloss over the fact that our first chapter established outside New York State is at Tulane...)

Oh, that's too funny!

It's unexpected to see a pickup truck sporting any kind of greek letters, let alone ten-inch high Delta Gamma greek letters. But that's what I experienced earlier this week!

I found out that a woman who sings in my church’s treble chant choir with me is also an Alpha Gam AND from the Chapter I initiated into! SHE was the one surprised to see our letters, I guess. She disaffiliated as a senior and hasn’t been involved since but after she saw the letters I wore to choir practice she contacted IHQ to ask about how she can repair the relationship. Squirrel rescue!
