I actually know a couple of people that are in this organization, it really seemed to be a midwest thing because everyone I know is from the Chicago or Cleveland area. I've been asked to join and start a chapter at A&T, but yeah it's not gonna happen, I'm already apart of an organization, besides, I really don't think it'd catch on here.

^^^read it. wasn't impressed. when he isn't discussing the D9, he has grossly inaccurate or incomplete information (one example, the Alpha Xi Chapter Gamma Sigma Service Fraternity at MSU :mad: ) As a member of Alpha Eta Chapter, Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority, I know there was no such thing- but Alpha Xi Chapter GSS did exist in the time frame he listed at Morgan.

He also went on an incomplete (and imo irrlevant) tangent about latino greek orgs....

yeah, his book was a waste of time. :thumbsdown:

I read the book and I did notice quite a few inaccuracies on the lists of orgs. But overall I felt like the book described the whole "Black Greek Experience" quite while. But back to TPB, I haven't heard much about it other than seeing pictures on facebook.

actually that just made it worse. they arent a greek organization- they are a consortium, whatever that means (in the context of naming your group that- i know the definition) so....why do "Greek" stuff?

but- first multi-cultural perforing arts org? hmmmm.......i need to know what defines "first" and "multi-cultural". mosty because i see all walks of life in the fab 4...none of theri purposes (from what she said) speak to the arts at all....

Hold up... please take a moment and watch some of the other videos. That is without a doubt some of the worst strolling/party walking that I have ever seen. Are they serious??? Did all of the orgs find out about this on the day of??? The only ones even passable were the Alphas and Kappa Kappa Psi. What the BLEEP were the Deltas, SAI, Kappas and Tau Rho Beta doing???? It looked like some straigt doo doo. :wtf:

This may sound kind of arrogant but theres very few strolls/hops that I've seen from other orgs that impress me....I guess Psi/TBS has me spoiled lol

I was amazed @ the number of organizations that have been on the campus of Virginia State University. Look at a few yearbooks from the 60s and 70s of your respective institutions. I've seen a few yearbooks from PV also.
