Is there really Greek Unity on YOUR campus? Posted on 12-26-2006

Ok fellow greeks I have a question as the Neo that I am. Is there really Greek Unity on YOUR campus? On our campus, within the NPHC, they stress that Greek Unity should be promoted throughout, however, I am failing to see that AT ALL! I make sure I speak to those who I KNOW are apart of the Divine 9(granted I can't possibly know everyone) even when I am not in my paraphanelia. I still get the looks, the comments, and some other things as well.... I mean Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.(!!!!!!!)is not really big on our campus, and we are the first line since 2003 (meaning: there are just 5 of us(all Neos) on campus), but we are all really cool INDIVIDUALS! Now dont get me wrong, we are one unit, however, I have noticed that new Neos are even joining in in the kicks of bashing each other... like some friends of mine who joined other orgs. I walk with a smile on my face almost all the time and speak to whomever, thats just the type of person I am and I think it looks kind of bad when there are so many of us on campus and we don't work together to provide that positive image, or reach common goals. We are all greek, no matter the letters, we all stand for different things, we are all SUPPOSED to do community service and uphold the community, but dang do we have to go around treating each other like this on college campuses? Are we not bigger than that?

At tennessee state university (TSU) the sigmas have no beef with anybody but folks think we have somethng against the men from alpha phi alpha. That is not the case at all. We are some real as Niccas with respect for every organization out there. However, there are organizations who look at me and some of my bruhs wrong. Heeey that is how greek life is. Everybody out there is not going to agree with what you pledged. U have to look beyond those folks and continue to do you. Feel Me.

There used to be... its fading away as of late. When i crossed spring 04 it was a beautiful thing. All of the NPHC orgs, PMA, KKPsi, Groove Phi Groove... we all got along VERY well for the most part. Mostly do to the fact that many of us were cool previous to doing whatever we chose to do. And we got along with everybody who wasn't in org... there was nothing but love (although there were some very minute beefs here and there but they didn't matter). anyway... since alot of the old guard started to graduate things have been changing. The whole dynamic of greek life on campus has been changing and therefore peoples attitudes have as well. I can't really put a finger on whats going on... but people definitely aren't vibing like we were fall 03 to spring 05. I wanna say at least when i went to school it was great... but it should still be even tho i'm not there much anymore.

I always thought it was between the Alphas and Kappas at our school but you're right, the Sigmas dont have any beef with anybody(which is good). As far as Greek Unity at our school(TSU), i dont see it a lot. I mean everybody is pretty much cool with each other but you dont really see collaborations between ALL the Greeks. Its usually just two orgs who MIGHT do something together and its usually a party.

I am also a Neo and I attend the same university as the person who created this post. In response to it, pan-hel isn't friendly here I agree. As a matter of fact, I like to call it Pure Hell. But lets be real..only CERTAIN groups do the dirty and shady **** on our campus. My chapter pretty much gets along with everyone, simply because QUES dont adhere to the Greek drama..we worry about OURSELVES!

To all those who thought there was a such thing as Greek unity, you were probably fooling yourself to begin with. There are "brother and sister" orgs and blah, blah, blah. People will smile and speak and maybe do some other stuff just to be nice, but at the end of the day everybody only cares about THEIR org and their org ONLY.

I do agree with you Slim(Mr. 228)... ya'll DON'T partake in this... and Id like to think us SGRhos dont either... but if one more person of a greek persuasian makes a comment about my letters one more time, imma let her/him have it on the real! And yeah theTruth I understand what you're saying, but I also know it's different on every campus. I mean just yesterday I was talking to a sorhor of mine who said their Pan-Hell members HAVE to stick together cuz the administration is always trying to shut them down/suspend them or whatever... and with XU being such a small campus and there being so many of us... I mean I guess I thought it would be a little tighter than it is... but Im kind of over it now and focusing on sorority business and our upcoming regionals.

Hmmm...i don't think there is any "beef" per se on campus when it comes to Greek life. Honestly, I have friends in just about every org., so hating on their org would be like hating on them. In truthfulness, I do think that we could do more collaborations and co-sponsorship on campus, but I don't think the lack of it stems from beef of any sort. But then again, this is the birth place of most of the divine 9, so stuff could be stemming back to issues that occured before my momma was even conceived *shrugs*
