A Campus Tradition
Fraternity and Sorority Life welcome new members.

On Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, sorority sisters at Allegheny College went running down the residence halls and across campus, chanting and singing for their new members. After all the new members gathered at noon, they went to Brooks Circle.
Fraternities at the college walked down Brooks Walk and stood in a circle. Each sorority and fraternity then took turns having their new members stand in the middle of the circle as the rest of the brothers or sisters ran in to celebrate with them. Both sororities and fraternities took turns singing and chanting their organization’s songs. After every group sang, they all gathered for a photo to celebrate Fraternity and Sorority Life on campus.
