College can be a little bit overwhelming and a great deal of work sometimes, and that is why I love having a group of sisters to go have some fun with every once in a while. This past week I was able to enjoy two of these great opportunities as we began bid week, which is the week before rush starts. We held an event at the Rock Wall on campus, which proved to be a rush of excitement as we tried to show off our strong sides and climb the walls. Being a society whose colors are pink and black, I guess some people don’t expect this most of the time. However, we did follow it up later in the week with some more girly activities as we held a Pancake Breakfast to raise money for the society. I must say, people do lo
ve some late night goodies cooked by the Athenians!
However, being in a society does not make your friendships exclusive, as I hang out with a wide variety of friends. Of course, one of the best things to enjoy in college is to go out to dinner and order your own food the way you want it! Therefore, last night a bunch of us went out to celebrate one of my best friend’s birthdays at Chili’s. Good times and laughter are always a great way to end a long school week. While it may seem like something simple, spending time with friends in simple settings is a huge part of college life. You don’t always have to have a campus wide activity to enjoy the evening, and in Due West, this is often the case. Learning to make your own fun is part of the college experience.
