If you do not know already, I am in Alpha Omicron Pi at DePaul. During winter and spring quarter we put on events to raise money for our philanthropies. Our international philanthropy is juvenile arthritis and arthritis research, which is what we had an event for a little over a week ago. The event was called Spike Out Arthritis, which is a volleyball tournament that we put on. All of the sororities and fraternities can sign up a team of six to eight people to compete in the tournament. Both the winning sorority and winning fraternity teams got the prize of money for their philanthropy.
At the event, everyone in my sorority had various responsibilities. The jobs we were assigned were either score keeper, raffle floater, referee, or team coach. I had the privilege of coaching Chi Omega’s team who lost their first game, but ended up winning their next three games and became the champions of the losers bracket! Go Chi O!
I had so much fun at this event because I got to know some of the lovely ladies of Chi O better, and also got to watch all of the sororities and fraternities get very competitive. Believe it or not, people get really into the tournament each and every year. The event was a big success, and I am excited to be a part of it again for the last time next year.
