I got it from Sorority Sprit (our new vendor) when they came to an event I was at, but they don't have it on their website! But I managed to find the exact one here:

I have been out of college for awhile, long enough to have been a chapter advisor for ten years and alot more. My front license plate holder has my Greek Letters and my rear license plate holder has the University that I proudly graduated from.
I have met so many fellow Tri Deltas and Gators because of them. I cannot imagine removing them from my car.

I have a magnetic decal with a crescent moon and Greek letters. I have purchased them at the last 2-3 conventions from our Atlanta Alumnae Chapter, to pass out as gifts to other advisors, alumnae officers, etc. -- I'm guessing it's OK if an alumnae chapter is selling them as a hot item. As a professor and advisor, every once in a while one of the chapter members will leave me a note when she sees my car.

I'm also back to using the Gamma Phi Beta license plate frame I got while in college. My dad made a point of telling me it was in their garage and I needed to come get it and put it on my car.

I have chrome letters on my car. Looks pretty nice, too.

I have a DG alum sticker on mine (anchor shaped) right next to my Tide Pride (Alabama) sticker on my rear windshield.

Because many non-Greeks don't view Greek Life as respectable and we all are aware of that perception.
Yeah, but . . . they're wrong.

I guess what I meant was why should we (Greeks) view it differently? And why should we let others dictate what we can and can't take pride in?

Like I said, if it's not weird to you, then let those letters fly!

When I started advising - the chapter had limited parking so the decal was my parking permit.
Now we have a license plate holder with letters - but its ob the car my husband usually drives

2001 grad with letters on her car here. I have a college magnet and the sorority magnet (with our philanthropy logo combined) on the back of my car. I keep them on there for a few reasons...1). I want to display some PR, 2). I'm an advisor and I want to show my girls that it's ok to show support for your school and letters after college, and 3). the letters on the back of my car ensure that I drive better, do not use gestures that are offensive, and just act "right" in the car!

I have a crest on the driver rear window of my car. And before I sold my motorcycle (*cry*), I had letters on the fuel tank. When I would drive it to class and park in the garage (before I graduated law school) I always used to wonder if the collegians ever got questions about who the GPhi was with a motorcycle.

I have a "KKG Alumna" window sticker that was given to me (and the rest of the spring '09 graduates from my chapter). I have never seen anything like it and will be so sad to lose it when it comes time to get a new car.

How about a personalized license plate that looks an awful lot like AGDee?

Does your magnet look like this? If so that is my creation! Our alum chapter is actually the Atlanta Southern Crescent Alum Chapter (we won Hall of Fame at this past convention!) and we have sold them at conventions




I have one on my car too! (I also have some decals on my car as well - it's "almost" a beater car so the decals help it look far better than it does!

My sorority sticker is still on my dad's car (I never had my own car thorough hs/college). I should probably take it back next time I'm over there.

National sent us decals that say:
TKE
Alumnus
but I'm liking the idea of a small CofA decal in the future.
