Every Greek House Has A God Or Goddess

A matching God or Goddess for every Greek House.

Every Greek House Has A God Or Goddess
Wikipedia

Not so long ago, a thought occurred to me that every Greek House has an adjacent God or Goddess that's similar to their house -- just think about it! It could be a coincidence or possibly be some big secret all of our nationals have long kept hidden... either way, here is a list of Greek Houses and the Goddess or God they match with.

Tri Delta

Poseidon

This answer is obvious as they have an official patron Greek divinity. It also can be easy to guess what their Patron divinity is considering their national symbols are the dolphin, pearls and the trident... their national color is Cerulean blue, and I swear they all secretly want to be mermaids.

Alpha Phi

Aphrodite

Maybe its Alpha Phi's national philanthropy women's heart health, or their national color Bordeaux, but it only makes sense to me that the sisterhood of Alpha Phi be paired with the Goddess of Love herself. They're beautiful and deal with matters of the heart all the time. After two sisters of Alpha Phi, Cassie Michaud and Taylor Charles got me addicted to a Dutch Bros Rebel labeled as a "Sexy Love Potion," I will forever be sure.


Theta Chi

God

While not all members of Theta Chi worship the Alpha and the Omega, Theta Chi would be the house to pick a supreme and singular God, show offs. Nationally Theta Chi has had a history with the United States Military and it's no surprise, they have God on their side.


Kappa Alpha Theta

Zeus

Hmmm, all about the sky, and an eagle on the crest -- you must be Zeus. Theta, while being a sorority, matches all the qualities of Zeus, right down to having that certain je ne sais quoin quality about them.

Sigma Nu

Asclepius

While deciding the Greek God of Sigma Nu, it became difficult. Going down to the basics, it only made sense to choose Asclepius. The God of Healing, and also the only one with a snake staff. When I found that out, I NU it was the right fit; Sigma Nu is all about dem snakes.

Delta Zeta

Hestia

The sisters of Delta Zeta are all about that lamp life, and it only seemed fitting that the Goddess of the Hearth help light that fire. Not only is she the Goddess of the Hearth, but she is the Goddess of Architecture, which makes sense after getting a recent house tour at the Pi Kappa Chapter.

Beta Theta Pi


Cronus

The Father to Zeus and King of the Titans, Cronus is the God of Time. It would be a lie to say every house gets along with Beta, and it made sense seeing what the other Gods thought of Cronus. It would also make complete sense on how Beta has managed to keep such a high GPA AND decent social life for so long...


Gamma Phi Beta

Artemis

The Goddess of the Hunt, she was all about fierce feminine power, something Gamma Phi Beta, striving for the highest sisterhood, I can only guess would be all about. Her symbol was the moon, and that's when I knew it was certain.

Phi Kappa Tau

Apollo

Resting on their laurels and with colors Harvard red and old gold, it has got to be the sun god Apollo, who would be the patron of Phi Kappa Tau. After all, Phi Tau is the Golden Ratio... did I mention they like sunsets on the beach?

Delta Gamma

Amphrite

With anchors and everything ocean, the goddess of Delta Gamma would have to be Amphrite, wife of Neptune and Goddess of the Sea. You may have had anchors, but unfortunately you couldn't get Poseidon -- Tri Delt already dibs'd it.

Delta Tau Delta

Diyonisus

There isn't any reason I give Diyonisus, the God of Partying, to Delt. His thing was ivy and dolphins so I guess he could go to Alpha Phi or to Tri Delt... either way, it just seems to work.

Kappa Kappa Gamma


Hera

Kappa and Hera seem like the perfect match. Hera was Goddess of Women and known for her secrets. She may not have been the Goddess of Ice but she was known to give her enemies hell. In the actual myth of Hercules, she drove him crazy and made him kill his family....

Phi Delta Theta

Athena

Another dead give away would be the patron Goddess of Phi Delta Theta, Athena. Their things are swords and shields and it makes sense with this Goddess. Athena is the Goddess of Wisdom, so I can only imagine how that could make one feel.


Pi Beta Phi

Eos

The Goddess of Dawn, she is the only Goddess I saw to have a pair of wings. If that didn't basically make her an angel I don't know what does.


Pi Kappa Phi

Tyche

Tyche, not a very known Goddess, was better known as her Roman counterpart, the Lady Fortuna, the Goddess of Fortune. After the University of Idaho chapter received the Alpha Tau Omegas house, I figured they must have Tyche on their side.


Lambda Chi Alpha

Pan

Pan, the God of Forest, seems like the perfect fit for Lambda Chi. He was the God of the Wild, and we all know Lambda Chi can go wild.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon

Helios

While Apollo might have been the God of the Sun, Helios was THE sun. One of SAE's things is the Phoenix something that bursts into flame and comes back, so I figured Helios would have their back.

Phi Gamma Delta

No one knows

Just like everything about Fiji, if they do have one, nobody would know. Perhaps there is an owl God or Goddess I don't know about.

Delta Sigma Phi

Hades

The God of the Underworld would definitely be for Delta Sigma Phi. This God of the Death definitely knows how to party. In my time here, many a DSig has been late, and it makes sense.

Kappa Sigma

Ares

The God of War, Ares, was definitely the Bro of the Olympians. While Kappa Sigma may have a policy to always kick out people in fights, I get the feeling that they are experienced at that sort of thing...


Kappa Delta

Persephone

If there were to be a Goddess into skulls, daggers, and the white rose, it would be Persephone. The Goddess of Spring time and wife to Hades, Kappa Delta happens to be next to Delta Sigma Phi...

Farmhouse

Hephaestus

Farmhouse members are all about hard work. Hephaestus, the God of Blacksmith and Craftsmen, is all about hard work and hammers.


Alpha Kappa Lambda

Jesus

Of course AKL, founded out of Christian principles, would pick Jesus. When an Alpha Kappa Lambda goes out to the bars, I always wonder how they manage to make it home.... well, Jesus has their backs.


Alpha Gamma Delta

Demeter

Squirrels love harvesting and you know who else loved to harvest? The Goddess of the Harvest, Demeter. Demeter was usually sweet, unless you pissed her off; like the time Hades stole her daughter, Persephone, she stopped the world from being able to make food. Like Demeter, don't get on an AGD's bad side...

Sigma Chi

Nike

If you are what you wear, this would have to be true for Sigma Chi. The Goddess of Victory on your side is never a bad thing, though.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
