Those of you who go to schools with high Greek populations, know that each house tends to fit a stereotype. As someone who has traveled to over forty schools, visiting houses across the country, I can attest that most organizations rush the same types of people. After all, chapters share values and traditions that align with their fraternity or sorority on an international level. Now, I don’t watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians at all and despise anyone who does in my presence; nevertheless, I know who’s on the show. These comparisons could be wrong, but in my experience, this is how the cast is portrayed on the show; so, without further ado, I give you the most likely Greek affiliations of the cast of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Kim Kardashian – Delta Gamma (ΔΓ)
Delta Gamma is one of the oldest and most well-known sororities out there so I thought Kim would be a perfect fit; just like Delta Gamma, Kim is always the center of attention. Whether they’re inventing bid day videos, reinventing sorority recruitment videos or throwing insane philanthropies, DG is making headlines and always has. Kim quickly rose to the top of her chapter, becoming Rush Chair Sophomore year and soon after, President in Junior year. From the start, she made it very clear that DG was HER house. After her success on exec set her sights on becoming sweetheart for the best fraternity on campus (which she obviously won). Kim is that girl who all the younger members are scared to death of until they get to know her, She’s that girl who’s known for whipping her boyfriend and the reason other girls wish they went DG. She’s bossy, yet gentle, sassy, but classy – she’s the perfect balance of a bad girl and a good girl. Kim is the anchor in the Kardashian family so it only makes sense she would go DG.
Kourtney Kardashian – Alpha Phi (ΑΦ)
Kourtney is totally Alpha Phi material, and the Beta Epsilon Chapter at the University of Arizona thought so too. Kourtney joined Alpha Phi upon transferring from SMU to make new friends but dropped after her first year before graduating in 2002. Alpha Phi calls themselves “the Ivy of Greek life,” and the top of the top. In my opinion, when it comes the Kardashians Kourtney is just that: the top of the top. Of the sisters, she easily has the cleanest reputation, which is appropriate considering Alpha phi’s motto “Alethia Orno Eteronis” means Truth, Honor, Forever. I don’t know much about Kourtney, but I could see those values aligning nicely with her personality.
You can find Kourtney hanging out around the campus hotspots every chance she gets. She’s the girl who goes on morning runs around fraternity row so everyone can see her; she’s the girl who’s boyfriend does everything for her because she’s a “princess.” She’s that girl you’re afraid to talk to anymore because the first time you did, you accidentally dropped your drink and she thinks she caused it. She’s a lady in the streets and a freak in the head.
Khloe Kardashian – Chi Omega (XΩ)
I don’t really know much about Khloe other than that she dated Lamar Odom. Besides just looking like she would be in Chi-O she just seems like she’s a cool, light-hearted girl that will stay up with you all night no matter what for. She’s that girl that splits that pizza with you while your sobbing about boys, The friend that peer pressures you to go out when you have to study that night, She’s the girl who picks you up in an emergency; she’s just the plug and, overall, a good person to be around. “Pursuing friendship, personal integrity, service to others, academic excellence and intellectual pursuits, community and campus involvement and personal and career development” is what Chi Omega says they’re all about and that sounds somewhat accurate; plus there’s this picture of her throwing up the Chi Omega sign so it couldn’t be more perfect.
Kendall Jenner – Kappa Kappa Gamma (ΚΚΓ)
Now in my college experience, Kappa has always been the most prestigious. They’re the most ladylike and “buttoned-up” sorority; second only to Zeta in number of rules. They care about their reputation on every front and ensure that there’s always a positive light shining down on them. I feel that Kendall Jenner is the same. She is easily the cleanest Kardashian in the whole group – I mean, no surgeries (to my knowledge), and she’s not doing those thotty photoshoots or anything that’s obviously seeking attention. She’s just the classic girl that seems to put fun and friendship before everything else. She’s the girl that would rather hang out with her friends and watch movies on a Friday than hang out with you. She’s the one that every fraternity wants to run for Sweetheart, but she doesn’t need the attention, the girl who dates a GDI because of his personality. She is a major “Key” in the Jenner/Kardashian equation and the sibling they should all “aspire to be” (see what I did there?). Kendall Jenner would most definitely be a Kappa.
Kylie Jenner – Gamma Phi Beta (ΓΦΒ)
Let’s just get this out of the way; Kylie likes to have fun. She’s the youngest of the girls, hoisted into the spotlight almost overnight and has had to deal with the consequences. Kylie is similar to a freshman girl who just got initiated. She’s fresh into this new world and ready for anything. Now I’m not characterizing all GPhi’s as Kylie, but my GPhi friends have a wild side. She’s the girl who you date and are still friends with when you break up, but she’s also the girl that can make life difficult if you had a bad break up. She’s nice when she wants to be but can change it up if she needs to. Gphi’s symbol is a crescent moon which means “bring forth, create.” With all her “Kylie” makeup, clothing line, and tabloid fame, she’s definitely “brought forth” and “created” a lot for herself and her family.
Kris(ten) Jenner – Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA)
“Seek the Noblest” they said…well look no further than Kristen Jenner. Kris is the Queen of the whole Jenner/Kardashian empire so it’s only right that she would be a Zeta. All of the 5 times that I’ve watched the show Kris is always the one mediating everything. She’s the sheriff in town. She’s the alumni, The House Mom telling everyone what they can and can’t do, complaining about how good things used to be and how everyone has it so easy. She can get under your skin more often than not but in reality she loves everyone (except her favorites) She’s full of stories, wise advice and guidance you need while away from home, kris is your mom away from mom.
Bruce Jenner – Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike)
Now before I get backlash from my fellow Pikes, make no mistake I’m talking about BRUCE JENNER, not Caitlyn Jenner, BRUCE! I mean before he decided to change genders he was a GOLD Medal winning track star who set a world record in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics. He was a stud, I mean look at the guy, straight legend. As Pikes, we pride ourselves on being student leaders, ATHLETES, and Gentleman Bruce seems to have all of those bases covered. Well, not so much the last one, but you get the picture. You can find Bruce on campus doing his routine runs by sorority row, catching some rays by the pool or crushing it for his school training for the Olympics. Bruce Jenner easily gets a bid in my book; though, I can’t see into the future.
Rob Kardashian- Sigma Alpha Epsilon (ΣΑΕ)
Rob Kardashian couldn’t be any more SAE, I mean just look at the photo above. Rob went to USC in Cali and unfortunately did not rush, BUT, if he did, I believe he would have gone SAE. He’s clearly a savage who could care less about his spending and eating habits. This guy is like flubber, one minute he’s looking like an obese McDonalds worker the next he looks like Taylor Lautner. My point is, SAE overall has limited Fs to give and so does Rob. He’s that kid that clearly doesn’t want to be around but joined because everyone was doing it and he got bids thrown at him left and right; he’s the guy without any interest in what the fraternity has to offer, except for the parties. Rob’s the kid who lives in the house and doesn’t leave his room for anything but to pick up his annoying girlfriend who he complains with her about first world problems; yeah, he’s that guy. No shade to SAE, it is the biggest national fraternity, and when you’re on top you can afford to be lazy. Rob Kardashian couldn’t be any more SAE, I mean just look at the photo above.
Scott Disick – Beta Theta Pi (ΒΘΠ)
This one’s a no-brainer. Beta is probably the only fraternity Scott Disick would ever join. It’s the KKG of Fraternities; only the wealthiest, most traditional and well connected people go Beta. Why? I’m not sure; it isn’t exactly my scene but, everywhere I’ve been, Beta is consistent in recruitment. Preppy, intelligent, slightly cocky and rich, these are the words that come to mind when I think of Beta. Scott is the kid that Ubers to class because driving is for peasants and parking’s annoying. He’s the guy that Postmates all of his meals to the house because the chef’s food “isn’t good enough.” He’s the guy who buys top shelf every gameday and pregames with his select crew because that’s his gameday ritual. He’s the man, gets whatever girl he wants, is ridiculously particular, and can be the life of the party when he chooses to be. As I said in the Entourage article, Scott’s the man, be more like Scott.
Kanye West – Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT)
This one was tough but, after weighing my option, I finally came up with this theory: before his inevitable “College Dropout,” Kanye was living it up at school just like the rest of us. After receiving bids from every house – because they all caught wind of his emerging rap career – Kanye thought he would join a fraternity where they wouldn’t treat him differently because of his fame and money, so he went ZBT. Kanye is the kind of person who wants to surround himself with wealth and culture so it makes sense that he would be ZBT. You can find Kanye in the studio, the library or toasting to the “Good Life” with his brothers. I heard they even had a black bar mitzvah-themed function for him, so Mazel Tov to that!
Tyga – N/A
Tyga doesn’t seem to be someone who would get through pledging. With all the L’s he has taken It’s hard to say whether he would have gotten bids and then been dropped mid-way through the semester, or if he simply didn’t get any to begin with. I take Tyga as the kind of kid who calls his mom because he “can’t handle this” and she calls the school and gets the fraternity kicked off campus. If you see a snake in the grass, cut em!
