Iota Service Chair, Fall 2015
A few weeks ago, early on a cold and rainy Saturday morning, the sisterhood got together to serve the community with fellow service organizations and volunteers. The kick-off celebration that morning with breakfast, live music and more was organized by Morgan, one of our own, and it was a great way to start the morning (who doesn't love free tacos and coffee?). The above picture was taken there, with Ken Starr and the majority of the TBS members that were serving that day. After that, we still had an hour to kill before heading to our site, so we went to Shipley's and had some laughs together as we ate our donuts and kolaches. By the time we arrived at our site, a church where we would help spread mulch on a preschool playground, the pouring rain had gone down to a wimpy drizzle, and it was a little warmer outside. This was really lucky because we had two giant piles of mulch to shovel that day, at least three times our height and very wide around the base. We worked with a couple of other organizations, and a couple of girls I got to talk to were really cool. One wanted to be a special education teacher, and she had encouraging things to say the whole time, even when most of us were sore and getting blisters from shoveling, raking and wheelbarrowing. Another girl was a former color guard member who told us about her adorable nieces that she was about to see after service was done for the day. By the end of our service time at 3:00, the playground was covered and our shovels had eaten through a pile and a half of mulch. It was admittedly difficult towards the end of the time because most people were sore and hungry, but we had done some good work and were able to talk to people we otherwise wouldn't have seen, so they were hours well spent.

I also had the honor of being chosen as Tau Beta’s homecoming nominee, which I was so thrilled about! It turned out to be a lot more work that I expected, what with interviews, photo shoots, and questionnaires (and walking across that stage was absolutely terrifying!), but it was still an amazing experience.
Even though homecoming didn’t go quite as planned and the parade got cancelled, it was still a super fun weekend. If anything, my senior homecoming was definitely my most memorable one! I’m glad that I got to experience it with my best friends and sisters :)
BU Class of 2018
Hello I am Katie and I’m a part of the Spice Girls(MC class 2014). A few weekends ago we had the alumni band preform with us and it was supper hot but it was so much fun! It was great getting to see all of the alumni especially the Tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Kappa Psi members and getting to sing with them. All of the alumni did a great job getting there super early in the morning for the rehearsal and marching their drill.
It is also starting to get really nice outside and I am SO READY for it to get cold again and wear hoodies. And although its only half way through the semester I am super excited for Christmas which is not till the end. Oh well I guess I’ll have to wait. 77 days and counting till Christmas!!!!!! (at least when I wrote this that is)
*****Disclaimer I don’t really take photos so I stole these off Facebook. Sorry if you did not end up in the blog post, it was not intentional.
CIAO! It’s Niketa aka Flik from the Mouseketeers. It should be known that I am super tired. Why am I super tired? Well when I first started at Baylor and I was a tiny wittle freshman, I was a psychology major.
For some reason, I thought that would work out. NEWS FLASH…. It SUCKED. Turns out, you should have some sort of affinity for people in the field of psychology so like yeah. So then I was all like, “I love GOD, I SHOULD BE A RELIGION MAJOR, but then I took Interpreting the Old Testament, that was cool depressing. I didn’t know that a class about God could come straight from hell. After floating around in Limbo, better known as being unmotivated undecided, I decided that I AM GOOD AT TALKIN’ , LET ME BE A COMMUNICATIONS MAJOR. Comm Studies and I are lowkey a match made in heaven [lowkey insert heart-eyes emoji]. Unfortunately, all my flip-floppin, frog-hoppin between majors has left me in quite the predicament because I have a lot of ground to make up, so for the time in forever (NOTHING’S IN MY WAYYYYYY), I am taking 18 whole hours. I also have one whole job, and one whole band enrollment, and that my friends is why I am super tired.
Fortunately for me, I have a really awesome new roommate who walks on my back sometimes when she doesn’t thing she is going to break it. I also have the greatest sisters in the world who all make sure that I balance all of my really sad work with really happy fun. I also got my eyebrows done, that doesn’t really go with the rest of this blog post, but yes. I LOVE GINNIFER GOODWIN. My teacher said I don’t do conclusions too good. Bye.
