    If you aren’t secure enough to wear a bow tie, you’ll never experience the improvement in appearance.

      HFF, The first fraternity in Virginia was DKE at UVa. And since Deke started at Yale in 1844, then will you please explain how the first fraternity was founded in VA?

      ^If that’s the case then how come KappSig’s ritual is blatantly stolen from the primary Masonic degrees? Ksigs are so annoying with their “founded in Italy” bullshit. Even if it were true it would make you the inheritors of a guido legacy.

      I get the tradition behind it. And I respect those of you who can rock it. However, as a Yankee, wearing a bow tie on the trading floor or in front of clients would bad news.

      The oldest fraternity in America was founded in New York in 1825. It is called the Kappa Alpha Society and was a member of the Union Triade. The oldest continuous chapter of any fraternity is the NYU chapter of Delta Phi (1841).

      All of you are somewhat right. It depends on what you want to call a fraternity. Some say fraternities began with the first collegiate society, the Flat Hat Club, which was founded at UVA by Thomas Jefferson in 1750. Others say that Phi Beta Kappa is the first fraternity, as it is the oldest Greek-letter organization in the United States. The actual first social society to use the word fraternity was Kappa Alpha Society at Union College in 1825.

      The North East is where fraternities started. I really don’t like all the hate on NE fraternities. You all act like we don’t know what were doing, the bros who graduate from here are the ones who RUN your frats

      Actually, Kappa Sig was Founded in 1400 at University of Bologna in Italy. It’s now based out of Charlottesville, VA. Phi Beta Kappa is the first American Greek letter organization founded fraternity in 1776, but it’s an honor society so it doesn’t really count.

    The funny part about this quote is that everyone in the South wears them because such a high emphasis is placed on appearance.
