We have two other chapters that have the same names as NPCs, Alpha Phi at Montana State (pronounced the same) and Alpha Chi at Western KY. Neither has the other sorority on campus or ever did. Our Kappa Delta Chapter will be an oddity in that respect. Hopefully KD and AOII will have a special bond on campus because of it.

Chapter names are used a lot more on some campuses than others. At the universities I attended/worked at, the only time you ever saw chapter names was (sometimes) in the rush booklet. However, I've seen chapter names on items at other schools that seemed to block out the GLO's name. That would be weird for Pi Phi and Sig Ep because of the way we name our chapters-- I can't see wearing a jacket that read "Alabama Gamma" in huge letters with a tiny Pi Phi under it.

My daughter's chapter uses Virginia Theta quite a bit...so much so that when her rec writer received a thank you e-mail from the VP-Membership, with Virginia Theta in the signature line, her first thought was that the rec had been accidentally received by the Theta chapter right next door, instead of the Pi Phi chapter!

AOII's chapter (now closed) at DePauw was designated "Theta" because KAT was founded there.

Never knew that. Love the history behind our chapter names.

We have a Delta Nu chapter. That makes me giggle sometimes.

I came from our Theta chapter and we have KAT on our campus. I worked with our Kappa chapter and never have confused it with KKG, who is also on campus.

My chapter uses the chapter name "Epsilon Alpha" or "EA" or "EA Kappa Delta" all the time. Part of that is because the school keeps changing its name - Missouri University of Science and Technology = University of Missouri at Rolla = Missouri School of Mines.
