ΣΛΓ Is Exuberant!

There is a very loud and very exciting sorority initiation going on on Low Plaza right now, next to the east fountain. Lots of singing and dancing and chanting. It’s for ΣΛΓ. It’s the most fun sorority initiation Bwog’s ever been to!

Update, 8:45: It was the Sigma Lambda Gamma Sorority. That’s ΣΛΓ. Sorry our Greek lettering took a while!

      @Anonymous I’m glad to see that self-righteous douchebaggery is still alive and well on bwog.

  • ...... says:

    @...... it’s for the Sigma Lambda Gamma Sorority, Incorporated.

    It’s an initiation, and they rocked it hard.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Is calling them EAT a typeface issue or is that what Bwog thinks those funny symbols are? I mean who actually knows what that silly Greek alphabet is anyway….

      @Anonymous Still got it wrong. ΣΔΤ = Sigma Delta Tau. ΣΛΓ = Sigma Lambda Gamma

  • .... says:

    @.... change the title already?

    1. anonymous says:

      @anonymous they changed it but its still on right.

      sigma lambda gamma, bwog, get it together lol

  • anonymous says:

    @anonymous they’re a latina sorority. Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Incorporated.

    and what they did is known as a probate, fyi.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous sigma lambda gamma. Please change the title. what an embarrassment bwog. on behalf of the exponentially growing greek community, shame on you..

    fuck you

  • seriously says:

    @seriously what the fuck bwog? that shit’s offensive. change the fucking title.

  • seriously says:

    @seriously fuck you.

    1. Eliza says:

      @Eliza Hey all- changed the title, really sorry about that. Tried to get up the post quickly to let people know what was going on/to encourage them to come watch the probate, and I realize the original lettering was inaccurate. It should be fixed now. Again, apologies.

      @geez dude, chill. it’s just a sorority. it’s not life or death.

  • wow says:

    @wow people, take a chill pill

  • chill says:

    @chill out!

  • why says:

    @why don’t they recruit people in sorority recruitment? how do they get members?

    1. anonymous says:

      @anonymous you go to an informational and then possibly other social events with interests and then you decide to pledge or not. also theres a process to earn your letters.

  • ahaha says:

    @ahaha “they’re a latina sorority. Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Incorporated.

    and what they did is known as a probate, fyi.”


    knew bout all the other sororities, but not this one meaning it must suck lol

    1. anonymous says:

      @anonymous lol ok. but they did come to campus fall 2008 so its new.

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous SURVEY SAYS: lol you’re so cool lol

    3. Just wanted to say says:

      @Just wanted to say i bet ur talking about all the Panhellenic sororities aka the white ones. THEY DONT DO SHIT! all u do for them is sign a little piece of paper saying that ur one of like 50 new girls they have selected and you dont even know all the names of your new sisters. the other sororities on campus that dont have processes like these are wack. PERIOD. you have to earn your letters, baby. and those “other” sororities…they’re just paper.

  • anonymous says:

    @anonymous i’m not a part of it, i just believe in greek love.

  • I would just says:

    @I would just like to point out that those girls look absolutely ridiculous. Dark purple eye masks just can’t go with black. And those pink jackets are absurd, can you talk about an eyesore. Please don’t impose your foolish rituals on us especially when you are so visually offensive.

    1. lol says:

      @lol those are the sorority’s colors. pink and purple.

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous i agree. those are horrible colors

    3. Just wanted to say says:

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous \knew bout all the other sororities, but not this one meaning it must suck lol\

    and the other sororities that you know do what on this campus? please, explain yourself.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous they aren’t haters. they just hate mean girls who form sororities.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous HAHAHA.


    while in this so called process they are like prisoners:

    they cant wear makeup
    cant shave
    cant shower
    cant talk to other people

    why do these orgs exist?

  • seriously? says:

    @seriously? While many of Columbia’s sorority members feel some sort of pride because you dress up in heels for two days then can rock a bag with greek letters for the rest of your time on campus, some people actually go through meaningful processes. Most multicultural fraternities and sororities nationwide DO hold probates – to show their knowledge of the organization’s history, to communicate their understanding of its expectations of excellence and community service even after graduation, to formally introduce them to the members of neighboring chapters of their organizations, and to display their hard work to family and friends who understand and respect what this means in ethnic-minority communities. Some comments above are just plain disrespectful, but I guess you can’t expect much more from Columbia, where regardless of diversity, willful ignorance of other cultures still reigns supreme. ‘Mean girls’ are the last thing these females should be accused of – they are strong, beautiful women who represent something REAL to everyone who actually cared to attend that probate, instead of those who giggled and gaped on the steps. These things happen yearly (at least) at campuses around the world. Do some research.
