I Love when I see older BGLO women wearing their para.I saw an older Zeta wearing a line jacket. It mustve been relatively new as it still looked "fresh", but she looked nice, really poised and put together even in a line jacket.

I went to a beyond dive bar tonight in my Theta Chi Dawn of the Dead mixer t-shirt and a pair of boxers. People kept buying me drinks.

I love seeing older BGLO both men and women not only wearing their Greek paraphenalia, but still wearing their colors as well. As long as they are well put together, it is fine with me.

I seem to always live near five million AKAs.

But I love always seeing them looking great in their pink and green from head to toe with their letters either on a jacket, a shirt, a bag they're carrying, or just a piece of jewelery. When I'm 40, I want to go decked out in purple and red (...well.. maybe not just purple and red.. gold parachute pants?) with letters somewhere on me, no matter who I'm around, with the same pride I have for my letters now.. just like those AKA ladies I see so often.

Hello I'm a Sisterfriend, but I personally love when I see older greeks who are still in touch with their organization and are proud to flaunt it. My first exposure to Greek life was the profession adult family friends I got more acquainted with in high school. Whenever I visited them in their offices I would see their letters or other subtle indicators of their affiliation, and it's what got me intrigued. Not because it was flashy or cute looking, but because it was really a LIFETIME commitment and not something just done during your heyday of college.

I would say as long as it is tasteful, wear your colors and letters with pride. I would not advise a 45 year old to wear their rhinestone studded xyz tank top or their letter accross the bottom of their yoga pant. But a tote bag, a t-shirt, and such is awesome.

That's when you wear your W t-shirt with your open sorority jacket over it.
33girl-you know...the more and more you give your opinion-the more I think you rock! I agree with the above statement.

I do reserve the coaches jackets/windbreakers for alumnae events and other events for which they would be appropriate.

I've never had anyone say anything about my age and my letters. Usually, I would get something like "Latinas join sororities?" if anything. But oftentimes, someone will come up to me and say "my cousin is in that sorority!" or something positive. I have even run into sisters around town who I did not know yet because they saw me in letters. That's always fun.

Maybe it is different for NPC sorority members, but I love seeing ladies well into their 40s, 50s, and beyond wearing their sorority letters when out and about. It would look funny at work, though.
I'm around your age and I feel the same way about letters. I only get odd looks when people are trying to figure out what in the world the big "ONE" is for on my jacket. It's quite a puzzle, you know. LOL!

Me too. I recently heard someone say that she always felt she was open-minded until she realized how closed off she was to opposing viewpoints.

In our small organization we only keep one lettered 'item' after we graduate, all the rest gets passed down to the younger actives. This is mostly t-shirts and sweatshirts and the occasional tote or whatnot. So, most of our alumni only have one lettered sweatshirt.
I think I'll still wear mine after I graduate. I love wearing letters, even when i'm not around campus and people have no IDEA what the colors and letters mean.

What is your problem? Why do you keep seeking me out? I'm allowed to agree with someone without your attitude. You must have an inferiority complex.

What in the world are you talking about? My response was to a post, not to you as an individual. Anyway, I'm AGREEING with you.

When I see posts I don't appreciate, I respond. When I see posts I agree with, I respond. It's not personal. I do not know you.

It seemed as though you were referring to me. Ever since that one thread, I've decided that I am very closed minded because I don't have much use for people who try and put me down because I have pride in my school or my organization.

Look. Once and for all. My issue is not school pride. I have it too. My issue was that the haughty attitude that came through the posts when you were tormenting the OP. You mentioned your THREE degrees many times and you gave yourself undue authority in the selection process at Penn State. It was VERY offensive to me.

It is this attitude that makes people think that educated people (and too often, GREEKS) are elite and can't relate to the majority working class population we have in the United States. Why in the world would you make such statements as you did and then get upset with me for protesting?

Furthermore, you jumped on the bandwagon with the other poster in response to me without taking the time to understand that this poster has a history of hostility toward me. She simply doesn't like me. That's fine, but there's no reason you should ever take her seriously when she responds to my posts.
