Semester Recap – Fall ’22

As the semester comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment to recap all of the happenings of the semester here in Epsilon Theta! 

First and foremost, we are so excited to welcome three new sisters into our chapter! This is also bittersweet as four of our sisters are also graduating this semester.

We kicked off the semester early in August when we helped with band camp lunch. Keeping our marching band happy and well fed during camp is important as they work to bring school spirit to life during the football games. Plus, staying hydrated is key, especially under the hot Georgia sun!

Speaking of the marching band, we are lucky to have some sisters who march, and where there is football, there is also a band. During the football season, our sisters were able to meet up with other chapters during the away games. We enjoyed getting the chance to meet and catch up with our fellow sisters at places like UCF, VT, and UNC. Even if we cheer for opposite teams, we will always be sisters in the bond.

We were also fortunate enough to meet up with some sisters of the Iota Psi Chapter at Kennesaw State University, when we carved pumpkins together to get into the Halloween spirit. We loved being able to see our sisters and have the chance to reconnect!

One of our favorite events of the semester has to be our annual trip to Our Lady of Perpetual Hope, or OLPH. This event is where we go and play at OLPH, which is a nursing home, so that we can bring some music and a bit of fun to the resident’s day!

Throughout the semester, we also joined forces with the brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi Iota to help host some events. In exciting news, the joint efforts of our organizations have brought back concert receptions! These have not been able to happen since before COVID times, and we are happy to be able to support all of our concert ensembles. 

We also worked with the brothers to help out around Couch and build some shelves to go in the new trucks that carry our equipment wherever it may need to go. Additionally, we also helped clean up and clean out inner props to continue to keep them nice and tidy. 

An event of note was the Halloween Haunt, in which we played some spooky music in the park. See if you can spot some sisters under the costumes!

We are also proud to say that we have earned 2 stripes from the Focus on Five program- the red and white stripes. The Red represents our commitment to keeping our chapter up to date with national policies while the White is indicative of our Coda project, which was our event at OLPH. We have also earned the centerpiece of the lyre, which is representative of our time spent with our sisters at KSU.
