Yesterday, the weather was beautiful! It felt like a perfect fall day so of course I had to do something outside. My friend Karleen told me that her sorority, Theta, was having a Grill Off and an event at their house for charity of I decided to stop by to see what it was all about.
One of my residents took this picture of me at lip-syncs. I have no idea why I was creepily smiling like that....
I got there just in time for the lip-syncs and they were entertaining, to say the least. I loved all the performances but the one that stood out to me was the freshmen guys from Ross Hall. They had so many stunts and acrobatics in their performance, it was amazing. Needless to say, they won the event and it was just an enjoyable event.
Here’s a video of last year’s winning team at Theta lip-syncs:
One of the great things about Butler is that though it is a small campus, there are so many clubs and activities to do and join. There are over 115 student organizations on campus which means there are definitely a lot of opportunities to get involved and meet new people.
I remember as an incoming freshman I wondered how I was gong to find out about and even join these clubs! Well that’s where Block Party comes in. Block Party is where all the student organizations on campus set up tables on the mall and everyone on campus is invited to go take a look at each one and sign up for the ones they are interested in. Each table usually has free items and you’re almost always guaranteed to go home with arms full of stuff!
Even all the fraternities and sororities have tables so if you’re interested in Greek life there’ll be tons of information of that as well. Here’s a quick video just showing how many people show up and what the atmosphere is like at Block Party. This year Block Party is on Tuesday August 21 from 5-7 p.m.
