spotlight on extracurriculars: on stage and on the track

Sisters in our Theta chapter are involved in diverse groups on and off campus. Our sisters make time to be involved members of Theta and chase after their pursuits because they love doing both! It wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sisters in encouraging the talents and aspirations of each other. We wanted to highlight a few of our involved members from our Pledge Class, PC ‘18, and what’s it is like to be so committed to something in addition to being in Theta.

Theta Sisters Enjoy Bacchanal Weekend

Theta Sisters Enjoy Bacchanal Weekend

AlunaGeorge, an electronic duo from London, performed at Columbia’s Bacchanal music festival. Our sisters enjoyed the day in the beautiful weather dancing to some of AlunaGeorge’s hit songs such as You Know You Like It and I’m In Control. Bacchanal occurs on the first Saturday of April as an occasion for Columbia students to enjoy the spring weather and to destress before final exams. With the intense stress culture that exists at Columbia, Bacchanal is a weekend looked forward to by many. Take a look at some of our sisters enjoying the day: 

Fall's Leading Women

Fall's Leading Women

Even with midterms cramming schedules and heavy course-loads making free time sparse, members of the Epsilon Upsilon chapter continue to pursue their interests beyond the classroom. Their drive to be “Leading Women” never stops, even when the amount of work they have seems unmanageable. Therefore, we’d like to highlight the incredible accomplishments of some of our weekly-awarded “Leading Women” from this semester so far.

Even before I knew that Theta’s motto was "Leading Women," I equated the Columbia chapter and its women with leadership. The way the sisters composed themselves, held positions on campus, and supported the empowerment of women made it obvious to me that they were leaders on and off campus. When I, myself, joined the Epsilon Upsilon chapter, I continued to see that the idea of leadership was not just in the individual sisters, but in everything the fraternity did, dating back to 1870.
