Upsilon Tau Beta Presents: The Sorority Hunt

Ever since Phi Sig shut down, the Greek world has been a-gossip with tales of the new sorority coming to campus. Some claimed Kappa Kappa Gamma was a done deal, while Theta others thought of forming a new off-campus. Now, with the DP reporting the final five to make the cut, you may be wondering– what new symbols will grace sweatpant-clad butts?

The members of Upsilon Tau Beta (really though we’d make a great frat) bring all you need to know about the potential new sisterhoods. Feel free to use these facts, Panhel.

Alpha Delta Pi (ΑΔΠ, ADPi)
Founded at Penn: Never, OMG, taboo!
Mascot: “Alphie” the Lion
Best ADPi: Winnie Cooper of The Wonder Years
Worst ADPi: This chick
Hand symbol:

Potentially offensive nicknames: Ate-a-pie
Verdict: Can easily see that hand symbol infesting Facebook albums everywhere. Definitely has potential.

Alpha Omicron Pi (ΑOΠ, AOII)
Founded at Penn: 1918
Best AOIIs: Two Survivor winners
Magazine name: To Dragma, or “the sheaf.” Yeah. A sheaf. Like, of wheat.
Hand symbol:


Random CollegeACB report: “hahaha those chicks should be locked in some cages somewhere not running loose and possibly sneaking into my parties”-Penn State
Potentially offensive nicknames: Always Open Thighs, AOPoop
Verdict: They have a whole web store exclusively for AOII gear. They will run Big/Little week!

Delta Gamma (ΔΓ, DG)
Founded at Penn: 1946
Mascot: An anchor that is legitimately cute on anything, ever
Best DG: Julia Louis-Dreyfus and a Cheetah Girl
Worst DGs: The girls who made this video, which may or may not include the lyrics “We’re gonna be hotter than God somehow”
Hand symbol:


Potentially offensive nicknames: Delta Slamma Gamma, Delta Grenade
Verdict: Anyone who can deny the chance to form a Penn-Cheetah Girl link is soulless.

Delta Zeta (ΔΖ, DZ)
Founded at Penn: 1928
Colors: Rose and green. That’s nice.
Best DZ: OMG THE VIEW
Worst DZ: That bitch I went to high school with
Hand(s) symbol:

Potentially offensive nicknames: Easy DZ, Di-sease
Random CollegeACB thoughts: “everybody is jealous of delta zeta”- North Carolina State
Verdict: Definitely a toss-up. On the one hand, their colors are lovely. On the other hand, “Easy DZ” is going to be hard to combat. Speaking of other hands, it takes four hands to make their little symbol. Unnecessary effort, much?

Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA, Zeta)
Founded at Penn: 1918
Mascot: Crown
Associated annoying slogan: “Only the best get crowned”
Hand symbol:

Look, it's a crown

Weird Fact: All of their letters are normal, English letters. How non-exclusive.
Have we told you about the crowns?: They’re everywhere.
Most awesome Zetas ever: The ones that can step
Potentially offensive nickname: Zits, Tits, and Armpits
Verdict: let’s take pictures with our crowns lol!
