It's not all Greek to you.

Posted on

1. No matter how hard you try, you can't bring yourself to throw away your old Sperrys.

2. You always had patriotic clothing for any occasion.


3. Every once in while you still crave a Keystone.

Or a Fratty Light.

4. You still own a questionable seersucker suit that you never wear.

5. Beer bonging doesn't have the same appeal it used to.

6. You have no idea how to explain that goofy composite pic that seemed like a good idea at the time.

7. You remember wearing short shorts way before they were a thing.

Sky's out thighs out.


9. You still get excited whenever you hear "Wagon Wheel."

But you're not so sure about the Darius Rucker version.

10. Looking at your old photos, you inevitably come across a cringeworthy one from a theme party...

11. A good portion of the shirts in your wardrobe still have logos on them...

13. It's sad, but you can no longer rock croakies with a tank top after college.

14. You have a stack of elaborately decorated coolers that you never use.

15. You wish it were still socially acceptable to wear your old fraternity gear.

16. You still sometimes classify people as GDIs or geeds.

17. You've managed to keep in touch with most of the guys in your pledge class.

18. And have absolutely no idea how you made it through pledgeship.

19. You wonder how you got up at 6:30 a.m. for the tailgating, but still managed to miss the game.

22. You now realize that you spent a small fortune on fraternity dues.

And your wardrobe.


24. Gray New Balance's will forever be "newbies" to you.

25. You miss the competitiveness of intramurals.

27. Oh, and of course no matter how hard you try, you will never be able to forget the greek alphabet.
