Andean adventure

I know it has been a while since I have posted, but I have been traveling all over Ecuador and Peru for the last three and a half weeks.

Back in the SAC (almost)

It’s been hard to miss the construction on the back of the Campus Center for the past couple of months since construction equipment has taken over a small corner of The Quad.

Big/Little festivities

“Oh, LEEEETTTTLE. Are you there????” Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this was the phrase that I uttered — in a high-pitched squeaky voice — to my Little, while sitting outside her dorm-room door. Last week was Big/Little Week for the Chi Omegas on campus. All of the new members, or “Littles,” received a “Big,” or upperclassman…

Greek leaders unite

I am so lucky — and not just because I was able to spend Feb. 7-10 in Indianapolis at the J.W. Marriott hotel. This past weekend, I attended the Central Fraternal Leadership/National Black Greek Leadership Conference. Sponsored by the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) and the National Black Greek Leadership Council (NBGLC), five…
