Killarney Rose,

I know for sure that Lisa Ling wasn't Greek. She's very public about the fact that she wasn't very involved in campus life at USC.

To put a long story short... Find out who the CEO of your favorite company is, and if it is a he, then he is probably a Lambda Chi or atleast related to one.

Perhaps you are getting her confused with Lucy Liu, the Chi Omega?

You can find a pretty huge list on the NIFC website.

I've heard that too but I read an interview she did and she said that her brother had gone to college and she had always wished that she had gone too. So, I guess that means she's not a ZTA. I'm wondering....how do some of these rumors start?

A lot of celebrities are initiated as alumni, regardless of whether or not they attended/graduated college. So, it's very possible that some people whose biographies list no college experience could still be a member of a GLO.

Dave Thomas, like many others, was initiated as an honorary. He was very active with a SigEp chapter, though he was not an undergraduate.

I already went on in the other thread about famous Kappas, and I even manage now to remember which newscaster (Jane Pauley) was a Kappa...I always get them confused. But other famous Greek people of interest to me:

Toni Morrison, one of the best writers on the whole planet is an Alpha Kappa Alpha

The head of the Girl Scouts of America...forgive me but I can't think of her name, is a Kappa Delta AND a graduate of Lawrence University (see the link in my signature)...

Lawrence also boasts one of Delta Gamma's very prominent initiates: George Banta, their only male initiate and a member of a family that owns half of Appleton, Wisconsin (the other half is owned by Boldt Construction ).

Maud Hart Lovelace, who wrote the very sweet Betsy-Tacy books, which were never on the shelf at my old library, is a Gamma Phi Beta

My best guy friends, all Phi Kappa Taus, never let me forget about Paul Newman
