Back in Black (And Gold)
The beginning of the school year is always quite hectic as everyone tries to settle back into the swing of things. My lack of postings has been due to my involvement with my fraternity in Homecoming 2013! Every year Iowa puts on a week long celebration for Homecoming that includes various events, a parade, and ultimately a football game. Additionally all the Greek organizations participate in a competition to see which pairing of a sorority and fraternity can earn the most points by participating in the most Homecoming events. However after a few long weeks of preparing, rehearsing, a bit of organized chaos, and a whole lot of cheering, Homecoming 2013 has officially come to a close. My fraternity (Delta Upsilon), paired with Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Kappa Phi, received fourth place overall in the competition and may I say we were quite happy. Although fourth place is never really a desired position to be in, we take what we can get! (In case you’re just tuning into the blog now, know my fraternity is returning back to campus, we’ve only been here for 2 years, and so we’re still figuring out how to build this organization that one calls a fraternity). Nevertheless, Homecoming was a fun thing to a be a part of and definitely a great way to get involved on campus.
