Monday, June 19, 2017 – The Symphony of Alpha Chi Omega
Believe it or not I was in a sorority when I was in college. Granted this is difficult to discern at times today when I am dressed like a 10 year old in shorts, T-shirt and baseball cap. I was an Alpha Chi Omega “… and I look like a dream; I may be funny Honey, but I’m not what I seem, I drive a Cadillac car and have a big diamond ring…You really ought to see me in my black bathing suit.”
OK Sorority song and humor!
One of the requirements for a pledge was to memorize The Symphony of Alpha Chi Omega. When you are 20 years old it is just sixty-eight words and the goal was to be able to recite them in front of your pledge trainer with flawless diction and enunciation.
Only when you become older do the words take on meaning and significance. Then goal becomes to live the words of The Symphony of Alpha Chi Omega. This is the hard part.
The words become even more beautiful when you are surrounded by those you made you the woman you are today. Here’s to my EE sisters from AXO from SFA, Dorm 18 “On the Wing.” Today life has made us real, strong women. Thank you sisters and AXO for the support.
Love, hugs and red carnations.
PS – I think you really ought to see us in our black bathing suits! Dang we look good.
Our school was so small, we didn’t have sororities, etc. We just had each other but we COULD smoke in class.
