"The 'Like-Heartedness' of Chi O': Sisterhood at the Derby

The fall is filled with so many fun memories in our sisterhood. Theta Kappa took part in the Homecoming festivities last week by working on our float, “When in Waco,” participating in Pigskin Revue by performing our first place act “A Day at The Derby,” and hosting our annual alumni breakfast. In the midst of all of the busyness, getting to meet and grow closer to new sisters has been one of the blessings of fall semester. Hear what Ellie Dewberry (MC’23) has to say about getting to connect with new sisters in Theta Kappa throughout the semester!

“One of the best pieces of advice that I’ve received from older girls in Theta Kappa is that the fall semester is a busy one, but to soak in all in because it’s filled with the best memories and such sweet, unexpected friendships. Morgan Green has been that friendship for me! Watching “A Day at the Derby” place first in All-University Sing as a new member of Theta Kappa last February was something I’ll never forget and having the privilege to perform in the winning act in Pigskin this Homecoming was an absolute dream! Little did I know that 8 weeks of practice and standing behind Morgan in Finale 2 would lead to one of my greatest friendships in Chi Omega. Some of my favorite Pigskin memories with Morgan include her helping me put on my fake lashes before each performance and singing the group sing lyrics of “24K Magic” together in the stage wings. Morgan is pure sunshine, loyal, selfless, and a celebrator of others! I’m so grateful that Chi Omega has gifted me with this friendship!”

Getting to spend so many hours together as a chapter to see something come together at the end is an example of getting to be a part of something much bigger than yourself. Hear what Megan Dillon (MC ‘21) has to say about getting to be a part of Homecoming

Homecoming is my favorite part of the fall, not just the weekend of Homecoming but the weeks leading up to it! This is a time to come together as a chapter to create something that we are proud of and get to see others enjoy, such as float and Pigskin. Float hours and Pigskin practice are opportunities to work on something together and to create new memories with your sisters. I specifically remember one day I was calling my mom while driving to float. She asked if I was going by myself and although I was driving by myself, I got to explain that I would either see my friends when I got to the float site or have an opportunity to make new friends in the chapter. It was at that moment I realized how special it was to be part of a chapter that I am comfortable and confident enough to blindly walk into a room and know that the like-heartedness of Chi Omega is enough to bring us together.”
