HAVE YOU HEARD… that there’s a way to bring your sorority study tables into the 21st century?? 

GREEK STUDY APP makes everything easier! It saves time for every sister, saves the sanity of the academic chair, saves documents and points, ETC… Eliminate the hassle and go electronic ASAP! 

Anonymous asked: Do locals tend to have badges? If so I'd love some pics! :)

We don’t know of too many, but some locals have let us know that they have pins/badges! 

Sigma Gamma Phi/Arethusa:

 

Alpha Kappa Phi/Agonian:

And if you want to take a look at some vintage Local organization pins, http://www.fratpin.com/viewalllocals.html has quite a few (though we have no idea whether or not those locals are still active!)

Anonymous asked: I'm wondering if there is an official list of local sororities. I'm interested in finding out how long each chapter has been around. My local sorority was founded in 1962 and we believe we are the third oldest local in New England but I have no idea how to validate that. Thanks!!

The only list of locals we’ve found online (besides our Local Sorority Spotlight) is at http://www.greekpages.com/LocalsOnline/list4.htm but it and other sources (like message boards) are really old and outdated! And we don’t have any locals in New England older than yours on our list (yet! We are always taking submissions!)

This seems like a really fun project though and we’d love to help you out as best we can! Do any of our followers have information on New England local sororities?

Local Gear for decorating your home, apartment, dorm, or recruitment table

Recently I stumbled upon these two sites that have fun custom pillows to decorate your dorm, apartment, or house with your own local sorority letters and flair and thought I’d share them.
