While President-elect Donald Trump looks to continue the Obama-started trend of non-Greek affiliated presidents, his sidekick, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, is set to become the first Greek Veep since 1993. Here’s Pence’s fraternity composite photo from his days as a brother of Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) at Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana, which he attended from 1977-1981.
Look at that fresh head of lettuce! Was not expecting that. I always assumed Pence has had gray hair from birth, like a Weimaraner, or George Clooney. I guess you don’t see too many gray-haired college kids walking across campus unless it’s Halloween or they’re a thirty-fifth year senior, though, so either I’m a moron or college Mike Pence had a great hair colorist.
Here are a few fun facts about the last time we had a Greek VP:
1. No current college students
were should have been alive during that time (get your life together, sixth year seniors, you inbred sloths).
2. The last we had a Greek VP, we had a Greek president as well — and both were brothers of the same fraternity. The ticket? Bush/Quayle 88. Both were members of Delta Kappa Epsilon: Bush Sr. at Yale, and Quayle at DePauw. While we won’t have a fraternity power presidency to that degree this coming term, it should be noted that while Donald Trump wasn’t a FIJI, his son, Donald Trump, Jr., was. Close enough, right?.
