^ Sweatshirts will survive removal of stitched letters. T-shirts, not so much. My big from my local gave me a sweatshirt with the local's letters, and, when we became a chapter of AEPhi, I had the letters changed. I don't think the stitched-letter T-shirts would have survived the process.

How does an advisor recommend greek letter removal from glassware one donates to thrifts? Just for fun (after holiday shopping was over) I looked around in a few thrifts and noticed donated, for resale, greek letter glassware from at least seven different orgs.

And as for finding "greek letters" where one would not expect them: my teenage nephew asked for crazy fun socks for Xmas and received a medium blue pair covered with multiple yellow triangles, which brought Delta Delta Delta to mind (even thought they use gold, not yellow). I told him to save them for a future college girlfriend, just incase, but the school he's thinking of attending doesn't currently have a 3D chapter.

On last week's episode of This is Us....

(spoilers below if you're not caught up)

Randall went through some imagined scenarios about how his life would have been different if Jack hadn't died after the fire. In one of the scenarios, Randall went to Howard U (instead of staying close to home at Carnegie Mellon) and he joined Omega Psi Phi. There was a scene of him and some other Omega brothers doing a step show for some schoolchildren.

In our condo building, I've met an Alpha Phi Alpha and a Kappa Sigma, both alumni. I still seem to be the only sorority representative - or at least, one who wears letters.

A "Home From College" lawn display featuring 2 seated, giant stuffed bears. One bear wore an ADPI shirt, the other a Sigma Pi shirt. I've also seen Alpha Phi Alpha letters/colors on tv as worn by neighborhood community pandemic volunteers.
ETA: I also drove past a small gathering of Alpha Phi's taking grad day photos on-campus. They were posing while performing their org's upright ivyhands gesture, standing as socially distant as possible.

Saw a beautiful woman on tv tonight with an AKA umbrella. She was speaking about the horrible child killings going on in Chicago's Southside.

The Director of Ops at my new company revealed himself as a Sigma Tau Gamma from their Beta Chapter. It made me happy to know he is greek. And, he was on the way to see a brother.

On the quiz show Common Knowledge, the question was asked "Which of these is a nationally recognized fraternity?" The answer was Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

COVID19 stay-at-home time must have been interesting for one local teen and her Mom this summer. Over the weekend I noticed a 15-16 year old girl wearing a 1991 IU Kite, Key, and Anchor event tshirt that was handsomely decorated on both sides. She was in a local sweet shop with several of her young friends.
