Hey everyone. Now we all know that we have differences, but in this thread let's list all the similarities. This can either be on a national or local/ chapter level (and saying "we're all Greek" doesn't count).

Alpha Phi Alpha, Lambda Upsilon Lambda, and Lambda Pi Chi were all started at Cornell University

Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Sigma Sigma both use the sphinx as a symbol
Delta Chi was also founded at Cornell in 1890!

incidentally....I have a 1950 Clarion yearbook and there was a local fraternity there called Alpha Phi Alpha. I am quite sure they didn't know about Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Huh. Now that's interesting. I'd like to know more about them.

Aww, what a fun thread! It gives me an excuse to learn more about the NALFO and NIC groups (I'm already pretty familiar with the NPC groups, and to some extent the NPHC ones).

Many of our similarities have already been mentioned, but there are some new ones in here too:

Tri Delta shares the colors blue, silver and gold with Theta Phi Alpha. Many NIC fraternities use either blue and gold or blue and silver, but none use all three.

We share the nickname "Deltas" with Delta Sigma Theta (although they're called by it more often than we are).

We share the crescent moon symbol with many, many groups (see GeekyPenguin's post), and the stars and crescent in particular with Kappa Sigma.

We share the pansy with Kappa Alpha Theta and Sigma Lambda Upsilon.

We were founded at Boston University, just like Lambda Chi Alpha.

We share the triple letter theme with Sigma Sigma Sigma.

Great thread Frat!

In addition to sharing two beautiful colors- Pink and Green, AKA and DZ share the rose. It's a different type of rose, but a rose nonetheless.

Alpha Sigma Phi shares the same nickname as Alpha Sigma Alpha -- "Alpha Sig". In a few chapters where there is no Sigma Chi presence, they're usually referred to as "Sigs".

And FIJI.

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia shares the Triangle as a major symbol with quite a few other GLOs: Tau Kappa Epsilon, Phi Mu Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Phi Sigma Sigma, Sigma Kappa, Sigma Sigma Sigma and Mu Phi Epsilon just to name a few.

There is also a Delta Phi Epsilon Professional Foreign Service Sorority. I THINK it's local to Georgetown, although they are considered Alpha Chapter.

I'll throw in my Service GLO...

We share our penguin mascot with Theta Phi Alpha and Kappa Delta Chi.

One of our colors, Maroon, we share with Sigma Kappa and Kappa Delta Chi (again!)

I'm sure we share our flower, the White Rose, with a few greeks.

And lastly, our principles of Service and Friendship we share with Alpha Phi Omega, our brother fraternity!
