Hand Signs/Symbols

Here at USF we do "alpha love" (forming a heart with our hands) for AOII and for example, ZTA does the crown, Tri-Delta forms a delta with their thumbs and index fingers..etc etc. So my question is..are the hand signs/symbols the same for every chapter at different schools? Or does every chapter have a variation on the signs? Share yours if you'd like!

Her point exactly.

We do 'hearts and doves'. I think there was a thread on this somewhere else, but I can't remember where, and my innate laziness prevents me from searching for it.

Not all chapters do them, but I love the pictures of the heart and doves that some SigKaps do (and I intend to spread them)
I've also seen pics of ADPis doing a diamond and others... look at the search results down there V (That's an arrow)

My chapter never did handsigns. Only recently did a sister from the south show me some of them. I thought that they were neat.

I've never seen any handsigns for ASA, although if someone wanted to attempt a palm tree I'd like to see it.

I'd be more impressed with a Phoenix.

The palm tree woud be easy - left hand palm toward you with your index and middle finger straight up together. Right hand palm out, fingers spread. Put your left hand with your fingertips touching the middle of your right palm. Your right hand is the top of the palm, your left index/middle fingers are the trunk, and your left hand is the island the palm is always sitting on in the pic. (ok, so it's lame, but you could do it that way).

Star & crown would be easy...
As Daisy said, no idea what you would do for the Phoenix.

Hey, not my problem, I'm not an ASA, just making a suggestion.

Alphafrog, 33girl, I expect royalties if that idea is used.

UCF is very big on Greek handsigns. I think JessXIca, a UCF Alpha Xi, started a similiar thread and posted some pics.

Actually, if you soak your hand in rubbing alcohol, you can set your hand on fire w/o buring yourself. Am I going to try? Hell no.

If you REALLY loved your sorority you'd do it.
