OK, not to be picky, but did anyone proof read this before they published it??

Omicron is not spelled "Omicpmn"
Alabama is not spelled "Alabma"
President is not spelled "Preident"

There may be others.

Plus, where did these famous members come from?

Courteney Cox a Delta Zeta??
Cindy Crawford a Pi Phi?
Belinda Carlisle a Phi Mu?

I am pretty sure Cox and Carlisle did not go to college, and Crawford dropped out of Northwestern after one semester - she was not Greek.

ETA: At least no one claimed to have Sandra Day O'Connor as a member!

I'm sure those are correct for all the sororities. However, it's not the Courteney Cox from Friends, the Cindy C the model, or the Belinda the ex Go-Go - it just happens to be a non-celebrity person who shares their name.

There was an article in this month's Arrow about people like Cindy Crawford and Susan Lucci who are supposedly Pi Phis but aren't really. Come to think of it, there was a huge thread on GC about "mistaken" Greeks.

Yep, us too! We had to have matching pref dresses with white or silver shoes. We all were to buy the same teal fabric and MAKE our pref dresses over the summer. (I don't sew!)

I still have my rush sked-- all the skits, songs, and required outfits for each day. There was a sort of "rush camp"-- everyone in our Zeta chapter came back to school a week early. All day long, there were skit practices at the house, song practices and seminars (know your sorority, Zeta etiquette and manners, etc) for the entire pre-rush week. Long days-- starting at 8am and ending at 9pm.

We were assigned a "rush buddy" which was kind of a "secret santa" thing.. and all during the week, we would leave presents for your rush buddy.

You guys have certainly brought back memories of seventies rush! The one that made my mother crazy was the one where we had to have antebellum dresses sewn (and I don't sew!) over the summer. At least we didn't need hoops in them, lol, but our theme was "Showboat" and our piece de resistance song was sung to the tune of 'Ol' Man River"..."Sweet carnations across the nation, the wine and blue are waiting for you.." and so help me, we converted our chapter room into an authentic showboat with a night scene outside, gangplank, and chirping cricket noises from under the gangplank.

oh lordy; we did "my fair zeta"(my fair lady) and wore these hideous bridesmaidy pastel dresses with the requisite picture frame hat in coordinating colors. how ever did a recruitment vp become convinced that we would look lovely in those IN august IN florida???

another chapter did pippin and was dressed in loud colored knee britches , white stockings , matching suspenders-they looked like old fashioned paper boys. what were we all thinking??

Courteney Cox attended (but dropped out of) Mount Vernon College in Washington, D.C., which became part of George Washington University in 1999. If I'm not mistaken, MVC didn't have sororities.

Carnation, FSUZeta, and BlueAngel:

Oh. My. God. And I thought our "Rolling on the River" theme night (yes, with plank!) and matching had-to-be-sewn gingham blue and white prairie dresses for ice water teas was bad!!! (How much money DID we all spend???) Oh, and I most DEFINITELY remember my crowning glory was singing a Barbara Streisand solo on theme night when I was a junior-but I don't remember what that theme night was!! But good, good times! Rush-yes, I said RUSH-was just so much fun!!!

I remember a Barbara Streisand solo for Pref - "Sisters... Ladies who need sisters... Are the luckiest people... In the World..."!!

We had a TCC who showed us photos of a SEC chapter she was in, and we were totally amazed! We did Safari Hunt skit, but they did theirs with MATCHING Safari clothing, pith helmets, shoes, etc! Their Pref night had to be a white (the material was provided) antebellum dress, made over the summer of course. I can remember the one sister requesting something like FORTY yards of material for hers! We were totally in awe!

One restriction our non-SEC chapter had was t-shirts. NO sister would be caught dead in one before, during, or after Recruitment, and a PNM who would wear one to a party could cause more than one eyebrow to lift! Now, was that a local thing, or was that just us?

I added this so that some of the newer sisters and alumnae can better understand why some alumnae are stunned at PNMs or sisters with multiple piercings and/or tattoos!

well, i was before the advent of a t-shirt for every event in the chapters life-we had our letter jerseys, maybe a letter sweatshirt or a letter baseball-type t-shirt. we wore those AFTER class.

i truly cannot remember anyone showing up for recruitment inappropriately dressed. i guess that all the rushees had gotten the memo.

honey and carnation-i love those lyrics-we all thought we were so cool, and now i feel like we were so hokey!!

"life is a cabaret, ol'chum, when you're in z-t-a!"

I just got a great big stack from Panhellenic for SEC sororities!

I know what I'll be doing Sunday afternoon...

Oh my gawd! LOL! Here was our version of cabert:

"What good is sitting alone in your room
We welcome you to stay
Where the world's at your fingertips
Welcome to ZTA

You're someone special, get rid of your gloom
Life's great in every way
When you've got help to be your best
Be it with ZTA

We're here to lend a helping hand
You're one of us start celebrating
Right this way, you're pledge pin's waiting

Don't let your great expectations of doom
Whittle your life away
Stay where the joys of life abound
Stay where the chance to live is found--
Stay here-- With ZTA!"

now.. you want hokey... did you sing the Zip-eed-do-dah song?

Zeta Tau Alpha, Hip hip hoorey
My oh my what a fine place to stay
Most of the rushees al lcome our way
Zeta Tau Alpha, the blue and the grey

Listen closely and we'll tell you
It's the truth, it's actual, Zeta's really satisfactual
So listen up girls
Here's what we say
Come on and be a Zeta today!

We did "Kapparet" either my junior or senior year or both. It was a fun skit.
