Greek Life Philanthropy- Hootiefest

Image

One of my favorite parts of Greek life is philanthropy events.  Every fraternity house is in a national alliance with a different organization, which they sponsor dinners and activities to raise money for.  The Chi-Omega chapter sponsors “Hootiefest” to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Our goal was to raise over $6,000, which is enough money to grant one child their wish.

The first activity kicked off November 11th at the Chi-Omega house.  There was an all you can eat dinner- $5 from everyone at the door- that consisted of food from all over Tulsa including Zio’s, Chipotle, Pei Wei, and much more!  The event took many weeks of planning and an entire day to set up, but all the hours of hard work payed off to make a great event!

TU

Hey everyone! My name is Kat, I’m a freshman and I am thrilled to be writing for the University of Tulsa Admissions Blog.  I’ve spent a little over two months here and I’m so amazed at everything new I’ve experienced.

A little about myself: I am currently living in Fisher South dorms (the co-ed freshman dorms), I’m a pledge in the Chi-Omega sorority, I’m interested in studying Communications as a major, and am over 1,500 miles away from my home in Boston.  Boston is a city filled with amazing schools, an abundance of culture, and one you will never be bored in.  So when my friends first heard I was interested in leaving my beloved city to come to a school so far away all I heard was, “But why Oklahoma…?”

I saw this view when I first came to TU for Tulsa Time last spring and I fell instantly in love.  The students and faculty’s welcoming nature made me feel right at home.  When I learned about all the amazing in and outside of classroom opportunities, I knew this was the place for me.  I have already met so many great people, am ecstatic about my decision to come here, and cannot wait to see what the next 4 years here have to offer!
