I guess it's time for them to go back to the drawing board.

I think that they are a colony (see her sig) of the SAEPi from Sorority Life, which has added several chapters since the show aired. She meant "they" as in "the original founding girls in the chapter at Berkeley."

That's what I originally thought, but didn't see anything on the SAEPi website about that colony. It's on Wikipedia now, though.

MANY thanks to oldu for letting me know that the ALT chapter at UC became Pi Kappa Alpha!

I am an alumn of the Theta Chi chapter of Sigma Chi. It sometimes causes confusion. We would often get information mailed to us as the Theta Chi fraternity.

great tips. I enjoyed reading this

Kappa Alpha Psi resembles Kappa Alpha
Alpha Phi Alpha resembles Alpha Phi Fraternity (for women) and
Omega Phi Alpha...well, they must not know that Sigma Gamma Rho's use the yellow tea rose as it's flower and blue and gold as it's colors....

OPA's colors are light blue, dark blue, and gold. But I've noticed that a lot of organizations share the same colors as others. Alpha Xi Delta has the same colors as OPA and Sigma Gamma Rho (if SGRho's are the two different blues and gold as well).

As you may also notice, that Alpha Phi Omega and Omega Phi Alpha also share the same three leadership principles. APO played a very big part in creating OPA.

A lot of organizations share the same colors, and a lot share the same kinds of flowers. Nothing is really original, and most organizations pick the colors and the flowers they did to represent them because of the meaning behind them and what it would bring to that organization, not to flat out copy another.

We share the same name (and nickname) as a regional sorority based out of PA. I believe we were founded about 20 or so years earlier and we are not linked to them. In the guest book archive from our old website you could see a few of their sisters have written to us and left their contact information but this was before I was a sister so I have no clue if we contacted them or not.

My favorite fraternity is Beta Phi Omega, a local founded in '67. Their letters now appear to belong to a black lesbian sorority founded in 2000. http://www.betaphiomega.net/ ...I'm not really sure. I know our boys are thinking about going national, so I don't know how that will work.
