Greek system in america

Recommended Posts

The universities in america (i'm unsure if it's anywhere else) have the "Greek System" in their fraternities..

So I have a couple of questions:

1) Why use the greek letters at all?
2) What's with the pronunciation?? They only say the first 2 letters and for me (I'm Greek) It's just sooooooooo funny!!!
3) How would you say Ψ this letter? I don't remember hearing it somewhere so..

LOL!
As a Greek-American, I have always been offended by the reference to "being Greek" as to belonging to a fraternity/sorority. And yes, their Greek pronunciation is horrid. Well, for that matter, you should hear how Greek is spoken in the seminaries! I know it is an older Greek, but I think using modern Greek pronunciation would be closer than what is spoken in the classes.

As for your wonderful letter there...most folks say "sigh" and leave off the p.
