How do you all know this stuff?

I had to google to understand.

Did you know that "Lexington Steele" was a member of Omega Psi Phi? It says so on Wikipedia so it must be true.

For me, I'd heard of some of the names from a friend that runs his own adult store & I've been there a few times to visit. The rest I figured were in the same business so I looked up those names to be sure.

I heard there are a couple with various affiliations, but not heard any solid confirmation. *shrug* Wiki, although good, can be edited by anyone.

No I just meant everybody who "got it" at first glance. I should have considered them more closely, I realize now.

I like how the names get more and more creative. Naming chapters after colors simpliy won't do anymore on GC.

I went to two inter-Greek events at area colleges during my Freshman year. Since St. Wilona's didn't recognize Greek life, I had to network where I could. I found a member of Mr. Marcus who would become my initial contact into their world. Although I was still friends with other members, he was the first guy I would meet from the city-wide chapter.

He was a nice guy. We chatted from time to time.

I did service with Mr. Marcus. Went to social events with Mr. Marcus. Loved the history of Mr. Marcus.

But you know what? I just didn't like the members OR the other aspirants very much. At all.

So..... I said to hell with Mr. Marcus. I was really disappointed in myself for discontinuing my pursuit, but if Mr. Marcus didn't fit, I couldn't force it! I took a break from NPHC fraternities and focused on having the best life I could at St. Wilona's. That meant being active in the Black Student Alliance and NAACP, founding the St. Wilona's Step Team, and even pledging Alpha Phi Omega during my Sophomore year. After a while, the sting of my freshman year disappointment was a distant memory, and I was so busy with everything else, that I would have been happy if I NEVER pledged a black fraternity....

Until Senior Year.....

I heard that the body of work for these "organizations" are amazing. Yeah, that's what I heard.

I'm loving the story, Senusret! Could you tell me if St. Wilona is the sister school to St. Thelma, St. Florida and St. Penny?

Brian Pumper
Mandingo
Wesley Pipes
Mr. Marcus
Lexington Steele

I knew since I was a teenager that I wanted to be part of a brotherhood, but I was never quite sure which one would be the best fit for me. I was sorta biased toward Mr. Marcus when I came to college because of my positive interactions with them during my senior year in high school.

To be continued!
LMAO @ the names... i was like "isnt Lexington Steele a... no, couldn't be..."

and i've been trying to get my stories aligned to do a retro NPHC thread... if there's a waitlist, can i get on it?

I wanted to scream with laughter when I read the names. (No, LOL was not good enough today.) Beyond creative.

I'm looking forward to the telling of the story!
