Looking Back: Freshmen Greeks Have First MC Homecoming

Editor’s Note:  Welcome Andie West, a Freshman here at Marietta College, to the Writing on the Mall writing crew.  She will be periodically writing articles from the Freshmen perspective, among other things.

Marietta College Homecoming! A week filled with exciting activities, food, and chances for different organizations around campus to show their pride. The week is also an exciting time for freshmen, new to the experience. I had the opportunity to speak with seven freshmen on their first Marietta College homecoming experience. Here are their responses:

Patrick Tegge, a new member of Lambda Chi Alpha, says his homecoming back home is a big deal and was expecting as much from MC. To his surprise, MC did meet his expectations. On asked about his favorite experience he responded: “working on the float at 2:00 am and building a gate to the graveyard with Chuck Bonakoski!”

Pat and his brothers got to work with the local sorority, Omicron Chi Theta, on their float. He said that he was anxious at first since floats at home took 4 months to construct, but despite the lack of time and all of the activities associated with being a full-time college student, the float turned out to be well done. Tegge is very excited for next year’s homecoming.

Elisa Santiago, a new member of Omicron Chi Theta, expected the week to be a lot crazier than it was, but she was expecting to have a lot of fun and bond with her sisters. In addition to sisterly bonding, the Omicron Chi Theta’s experienced inter-Greek bonding with the Lambda Chi. Elisa said making the float with them was a lot of fun. “We forgot to open the windows (At the Lambda Chi house) so that was a headache with all the spray paint!” she said laughing. “Homecoming was a lot of fun and I can’t wait ‘til next year”!

Bryan Murray, a new member of Alpha Tau Omega, was expecting homecoming to be “kinda lame because (back home) cheerleaders and football players were the only ones who cared.” However, the MC homecoming “exceeded” his expectations. “I enjoyed it greatly and loved how much you could participate in and building the float was fun.” The croon was Bryan’s while Blake Alan Johnson jumped rope behind me!” Next year? “I’m excited especially now that I know what it’ll be like I can put more in it and get more out of it.”

Clay Ellenwood, a new member of Delta Tau Delta, figured it would be a pretty long, fun week and was looking forward to meeting a lot of new people. His favorite part of the week: “I think my favorite part was getting to compete in the Greek competition it was something I didn’t expect to be a part of”. Next year? “Definitely excited for next year for more opportunities to get involved and contribute since it’s not so new to me.”

I asked Alex Martin, a new member of Chi Omega, about her homecoming experience and she said it met her expectations. Her favorite part? “Can it be a tie?” she laughed. “There were so many good aspects it’s hard to pick out a favorite!” Her top two favorites were: The feeling of accomplishment after the cheer and her second was the announcement of fellow sister, Jen Kuhn, as queen. Next year? “I can’t wait!” She is excited to participate in more activities in the 2011 MC homecoming.

Mary Roberts, a new member of Alpha Xi Delta, was unsure what to expect from her new home’s homecoming. “I was pumped to do things with my sorority!” Her favorite activity? “Cheer! We are pumped for Greek week already!” Her impression? “A lot going on” but she enjoyed how everyone on campus was involved and showed pride in their organizations. Mary is excited for next year’s homecoming.

Kiki Cunningham, a new member of Sigma Kappa, knew homecoming was going to be fun. When asked if the week met her expectations she responded: “Yeah! It was a lot of fun and seeing how much pride everyone had for the school.” Her favorite? “The cheer and croon because I liked seeing what everyone came up with because everyone was so different.” Kiki is already excited for next year and uncovering the theme and how it’ll play through.

All in all, the freshmen experience of homecoming was positive and exceeded all their expectations. From the cheer and croon to amusing float stories, the MC 2010 homecoming is one to remember for our freshmen.

The Power of a Wish

Pie a ChiEd’s Note:  Chelsey Scott will be writing for Writing on the Mall, please give her a warm welcome.  For full disclosure, Scott is a Chi Omega.  Also, apologies for the delay in getting this article out.  Things will be much more on time now, I promise.

If you had lunch or dinner in Gilman on Wednesday, September 1, you may have noticed lots of pies outside. And not the kind of pie you eat – the kind of pie you throw. At Chi Omegas, to be specific. This year’s first on-campus fundraiser was held by the women of Chi Omega in their annual Pie-A-Chi charity event, proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation, their national philanthropy. After taking last year off from the event, Pie-A-Chi was brought back by popular demand this fall. And when I say popular, I mean popular. The event raised more money than it has in the last five years with a grand total of over $600! Not bad for four hours and thirteen tubs of whipped cream huh?

Pie A ChiFor those who may have missed the event, students who wished to pie one of the women paid either $3 for a throw or $5 for a smash in the face. Not only were the Chi Omegas the targets, special guest appearances were made by Delta Tau Delta’s Derek Ensinger, Alpha Tau Omega’s Drew Schulte, Sigma Kappa’s Amber Davis, (then) Rho Gammas Alex Edelbrock and Kasey Woodworth, and student body President, Josh Maxwell. The women of Chi Omega want to send a million thanks to these individuals for being such great sports to raise money for this fantastic cause! And another thanks to all the people who paid to pie a Chi – you helped share the power of a wish, the mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation raises money to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. For more information about the Make-A-Wish Foundation, visit www.wish.org.

WATCH: Greek Week Lip Sync Rocks Fenton Court

As the semester draws to a close, only three things are guaranteed:  Finals, Doo Dah Day, and Greek Week.  And the last item is this week.

Greek Week 2010 kicked off on Saturday with Community Service Day, but the week’s biggest event was Sunday night in Fenton COurt.  Lip Sync, the most highly coveted Greek competition, brought five of the six chapters at MC to the stage.  The chapters were given the task of finding songs between the late 80’s and 1999 (The Nickelodeon period, I guess you could say), but there was no actual theme for the night.  However, most chapters followed the Greek Week theme, which is Nickelodeon.
