Panhellenic toast

This tradition has been around for awhile. It wasn't new when my daughter was there and that has been awhile. In the beginning they are humming, you just can't hear them. They do this every day after the last party during rush. By the end of the week they are singing it in their sleep. My daughter said as a PNM when it is dark out the humming is a little freaky. There are lots of ghosts in Williamsburg! Makes me smile--

Beautiful!

But I did LOL when Gamma Phi sat down and Pi Phi stood up. The three groups that went ahead of Pi Phi were all dressed normally, then out of no where there's "cat in the hat" hat and a girl in a banana suit. Not knocking the Pi Phis, but it was just very unexpected!

Ok, did the best I could, someone help me fill in the gaps if you can. Sometimes with muffled words if you know what to expect you can figure it out, but also sometimes the meter is fudged making it tricky.


And here's to all women of Greek fraternity,
Whatever creed or motto
Whatever they may be
Our strength is our country, our God, democracy,
May we never be found wanting in allegiance to these three.

And here's to all the Phi Mus,
Who wear the heart in hand
The rose and white ribbon
That binds us in our bond
From the lion take our courage,
Our strength and honor too
May we always have the memory
Of the love that means PHI MU!

And here is to Kappa Theta
The colors black and gold
Our kite is what unites us
With sisters young and old.
Our stars, brightly shining,
Will guide us night and day
From KAPPA ALPHA THETA
Our hearts will never stray!

And here's to Kappa Delta
The diamond shield we wear
Throughout our lives in sisterhood
Our friendships we will share.
Our strength is our emerald,
Our beauty our white rose,
Through TA KALA DIOKOMEN
Our Love ever grows!

And here's to Gamma Phi
Whose crescent shines so bright,
With the pink carnation,
And browns of dark and light.
Our love is for our sisters,
And loyal we will be.
In GAMMA PHI BETA
True friendships you will see!

And here's the Pi Phi Angels
in wine and silver blue
The friendship that we share is
Of sisters ever true.
Our hopes and aspirations,
We aim our arrows high.
We will always be united
In our PI BETA PHI!

And here's to the Deltas
The silver, gold and blue.
Our never ending circle,
Our pearl and pine tree too.
Our sisterhood is special
True friends we'll always be
Your happiness is our hope
In love for Deltas three!

And here's to Chi Omega
The cardinal and the straw
And to the white carnation,
The fairest flower of all
And to the skull and crossbones
The letters and the owl
May we never ______ broken(?)
Our BELOVED SACRED VOWS!

And here's to Kappa Gamma
And to the key of gold
Unlocking love and loyalty
________- unfold?
The beautiful and good
To us will always be
The blue and blue of friendships true
Of K K G!

And here's to the lyre
With pearls and friendships true
Our sisterhood we cherish
In everything we do
Together we will honor
The sacred vows that tie
And ever we will seek the heights
In the name of ALPHA CHI!

And here's to Delta Gamma
Her anchor and her shield
Her loyalty united
And friendships ever sealed
Our cream rose is our beauty
Our bronze, pink, and blue
And to our own dear DELTA G
We always will be true!

And here's to all women of Greek fraternity,
Whatever creed or motto
Whatever they may be
Our strength is our country, our God, democracy,
May we never be found wanting in allegiance to these three.

Thanks, Drole! When it comes to translations, you are still the champ.

I think that these are right.

Although, I've never taken part in Sorority Recruitment, being on the Y-chromosome side of things, I think that this video is quite wonderful.

When I was in school and whenever the Greeks were together, it was always the sororities who led us all in song, which really brought us together.

Or something similar, yeah. Thanks!

Honestly with a few of them I couldn't understand the letters even the first time they said them. Kappa Theta and Chi Omega for example, one because I wasn't expecting it and one because it was muffled. I'm sure I've messed up a few of the tiny words, but we have the jist of most of it.
