Greek Life

All the fellas after playing campus tennis ball golf.
Alright, I'm getting to this post a little late. I know. I'm sorry! This week, like last week, was pretty crazy. No, we didn't have any wild parties or a crazy-awesome football game (however, watching the University of Utah annihilate BYU was great), but this week was Rush Week for Utah State University. This week, all the fraternities and sororities on campus recruited new members. This meant that every day during the week, each organization had something going on to introduce people to their organization and brothers/sisters. I had the privilege this year of co-running Rush Week with my SigEp brother Erik Mikkelsen. We decided to co-run this week due to Erik being ASUSU President. So, you know, he's kiiiiind of busy.

My fraternity (Sigma Phi Epsilon) had a great time recruiting this week. Here's a list of what we did throughout the week.

Monday: All-Greek BBQ and house tours.
Tuesday: Campus tennis ball golf (post-round picture above)
Wednesday: BBQ and horseshoes at the house
Thursday: Dodge ball in the Field House
Friday: "Balanced Man" Banquet and a Burning Heart ceremony in Green Canyon

Overall, this week was amazing. We have around 25 new guys who will be joining SigEp on Monday. It was great to see how many people went Greek throughout all the houses. Each house had a lot of new members choose to join. Which is great to see considering the Greek community at USU sometimes gets looked at with less-than-positive views. But, I know from experience that going Greek is an excellent way to make your college experience a bajillion times better. Yes, a bajillion.

Well, that's all I got. Keep it real.

Go, Aggies!
