Spring Recruitment for West Liberty’s sororities kicked off on Jan. 22. Chi Omega, Lambda Psi Sigma, Alpha Xi Delta, Beta Rho Epsilon, and Delta Theta Kappa are all searching for potential new members.
Chi Omega, national sorority, began their week by hosting “Collage with ChiO” over Zoom. Members and potential new members (PNMs) picked either a red or yellow bag with color coordinated photos to form a collage. The next event was Taco Tuesday on Jan. 26. At this event, they ate tacos in a bag and discussed their philanthropies and involvements with the community. On Thursday, Chi Omega painted old records with their “Off the Charts” event in the Alumni Room. Their philanthropies include Make A Wish and Owl Pals with Madison Gals.
Lambda Psi Sigma, local sorority, had their first even on Jan. 22 with “ZOOMba.” Using screen share, participants followed a YouTube video that showed them a dance. Their second event was “Making Valentines with the sisters of Lambda Psi Sigma” on Jan. 25. Those who attended used paper and pre-made cards to make Valentines for their friends and sisters. The third event was “Game Night” where an intense Kahoot! competition took place. The week wrapped up with a “Spa Night” on Wednesday and “Show and Tell” on Thursday. Lambda’s philanthropies include local animal shelters and St. Jude’s.
Alpha Xi Delta, national sorority, had all their events over Zoom. The first was “Plant a Seed with Alpha Xi Delta.” Those who joined in picked up a succulent in the Student Union and then planted them while talking virtually with the sisters of Alpha Xi Delta. On Jan 26., the sorority held “Let’s Taco ‘Bout Our Philanthropy” where they ate nachos and discussed the organization’s affiliations. Their main philanthropy is Autism Speaks. The last event they held was “It’s Fun to be an Alpha Xi” where participants made necklaces over Zoom.
Beta Rho Epsilon, local sorority, started their events on Jan. 26 with a “Game Night.” Their second event, making friendship bracelets, was on Jan. 28. Beta Rho Epsilon had both virtual and in-person options for their events. Their philanthropies are Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) and Child with Cancer Project.
Delta Theta Kappa, local sorority, had one event during the week of Jan. 25. On Jan. 28, this consisted of tie-dyeing masks. They plan to hold three more events next week: Game Night on Feb. 2, “Pro-Bono Night” on Feb. 3, and “Cocoa with the Cast” on Feb. 4. Each of these events are at 6 p.m. in Main Hall. Delta Theta Kappa’s philanthropies are The Multiple Sclerosis Society, Breast Cancer Research, and Ronald McDonald House.
Most of the sororities are continuing their events into the week of Feb. 1. If you are interested in going Greek, make sure to attend and check out each sororities’ social media!
