Last night all the PHC sororities at LSU participated in Trick or Treat Down the Row. All the chapters had different themes, fun activities, and tons of candies for the kids. At the Theta house, the theme was "Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!" There were many games like the Giraffe Toss and Tiger Toss and even a face painting station. There were many kids ranging from toddlers to pre-teens and turned out to be a fun night for the kids and Thetas!

Every fall, girls from each sorority come to the parade grounds at LSU to participate in an event that consists of games and tons of watermelons. This event is called Watermelon Bust and it is an annual philanthropic event hosted by Lambda Chi Alpha. This year, two sororities were paired to a different station and each station consisted of different games such as slip and slide, tug-o-war, etc. It wasn't long until people stop playing the games and started throwing pieces of watermelon at one another.
On September 18, the Delta Kappa chapter hosted a GRUB (Girls Rounding Up Boys) for the all the members and their dates. The theme was "It Used to be Cool" and there were many creative costumes from Toy Story characters to Power Rangers. The most creative costumes of the night were Beenie Babies, worn by Lauren Berg and Mia Livaccari. Thanks to all of exec and the RM team who helped make the night a night to remember!

A 10 hour plane ride, 5 movies and 6 naps later, two members of the Delta Kappa chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta finally made it to Europe! Theta sisters, Lindsey Ratcliff and Laura Chan traveled for thirty days to six amazing cities across Europe: Amsterdam, Netherlands; Paris, France; London, England; Edinburgh, Scotland; Isle of Skye, Scotland; and Dublin, Ireland. Their days were packed with plenty of sightseeing and learning about different cultures, all the while studying public relations and British media. Lindsey and Laura found the “I Amsterdam” monument, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, visited Versailles, and went to Stonehenge. They also saw where the Romans bathed, toured the BBC, made their way through Oxford, played in the Scottish Highlands, and even met the very infamous character of the unofficial song of Ireland, Molly Malone! Those are only a few of the adventures these two had on their trip.
Laura and Lindsey both agree that this trip was one major milestone in their lives. They met many different people, ranging from cast members of the Peter Pan play in Kensington Gardens in London to members of British Parliament to backpackers from all over the world. Not only did they meet amazing people and partake on many adventures, they were able to venture this new world together. According to Laura, “Because Ratcliff was with me on the trip it made going to all of these new places and meeting all these Europeans so much easier.” Lindsey also said, “Not only did I get to travel across Europe and experience different cultures with Laura, but I also made some really great friends along the way!”

Christine Craig, Amy Elder, Ashley Giglia, Amelia Hurt, Lynn Kazda and Melina Raniolo represented Theta this year in the tournament. A few games were nail-biters, with Theta rallying back and forth with other teams for the set point. Although the weather was hot, they persevered and defeated seven other sororities. The team will be presented with a first-place trophy engraved with Kappa Alpha Theta.
