Lynn is first!
Let’s start easy. What’s your favorite color?
Purple!!! I mean, blue and white… no, green and gold… oh darn, I don’t know, I am pulled in so many directions! I thought this was supposed to be an easy question!?!?!?!
What was YOUR favorite rush event to attend before you were a member?
Haha, well this is a particularly funny question for me because I actually attended only two rush events before I joined TBS; so I guess I will say the kickball joint rush event with K Psi (mostly because I LOVE kickball, which is really funny because I am not actually that good at it, lol). The other rush event I attended before I joined TBS was the Mayborn Museum rush event. We did a scavenger hunt at Mayborn Museum trying to find certain random items (like whoolly mammoth horns in the museum). That one was really fun too!
If you could do your Tau Beta experience all over again would you (MEP and all c: )? And Why?
If I could do it again, would I still do it? Yes. Absolutely. It’s been amazing. Yes, I am really busy. Yes, it takes a lot of energy some times. But the relationship I have with my sisters is just priceless. Whether it’s running by a sister and slapping her butt during rehearsal (which I “supposedly” do often), or being able to be with my little sister when she needs someone to talk to, or just goofing off with my pledge class, this sisterhood is something that I cherish so much. With the one thing we have in common (a love of band and music), we bring together so many differing personalities and experiences and strengths, it’s just beautiful how it all seems to mesh so well.
Show us a picture of you and your bigs!
What has been your favorite official Tau Beta Sigma moment?
Oooh, this is a really hard one. Hmmmm. Well, can I say the entire MEP? That was just a wonderful moment in and of itself!
What has been your favorite “non-TBS” TBS moment?
Okay, so here’s a fun recent story! It was an impromptu dinner with some of my pledge sisters at Olive Garden. We literally decided that we wanted Olive Garden and went at the last minute. I think I was wearing like shorts and a tshirt (and looked kinda crummy), but it was so much fun flirting with the waiter… I mean, spending time at Olive Garden with my sisters. ;-)

How do you feel about the Beta Alpha/Iota relations?
How do I feel about then? Well, since I love boys… Haha. The relationship we have with our boys is really outstanding. It’s always weird going to conventions and seeing the other chapters who don’t really get along with their brother/sister chapters. I just love how easily we get along and how well we work together. Like this past game, Leanna and Will (the two service chairs of TBS and K Psi, respectively) worked so well to coordinate all of the things necessary to bring to collegestation and making it all work together. I am always so happy to see how well we get along, work together, and love on each other.
What’s the best TBS or Iota thing you own and who gave it to you?
Probably my ever-increasing supply of turtles. Each turtle has its own story.
Like one turtle was given to me by my “secret sister”, Kim J. last semester (which was really funny because I was actually hers but she wanted to thank me for all the goodies I had given her, it was SO sweet). And that turtle rides on my BUGWB backpack.
Another turtle rides on my BUGWB backpack with Kim’s turtle too! This turtle was given to me by my MEP class beau, Andy. He gave all of Serendipity these cute little turtles that have blue lasers on them! That turtle is also very adorable!
I have another set of turtles (3 to be exact) that are paper turtles! These turtles came from Jenny, Sara, and David (he’s a graduated K Psi). Last year, for my birthday, they decorated my door (and part of the hallway leading up to my door, lol) with streamers and turtles and all sorts of fun stuff. It was so cool. And I definitely kept those turtles!
And then I have these really cute turtle pencil sharpeners that came from last year when I was Keeper! They were the sisterhood birthday presents, so every sister with a birthday in the spring got one! I have one that is blue and white (yay!) and another one that I use for sharpening my eyeliner pencils that is pink and blue!
Okay, and I will save you the rest, but I have a LOT more turtles… Let’s just say I really like turtles… Sic ‘em Tau Beta!
