This past week Delta Chapter held our annual War of the Roses competition for Push America between the Furman sororities. The week included Pie-A-PiKapp, a wheelchair race, and wheelchair basketball. The competition culminated with a brotherhood auction on Thursday and the announcement of the week’s winner with the sisters of Chi Omega being crowned champions. Overall it was a great week for raising awareness and donations for Push America and people with disabilities.

The EC and some of the senior brothers went on the annual Associate Member Retreat with Tau Class. The group went to Toccoa, Georgia, staying at one of our brother’s lake house. The brothers and associates took in some of the local barbeque and toured the falls.

At Semi-Formal we announced the last of our seasonal roses with Ms. Allison Rappuhn being named Spring Rose. Our year long rose for next year will be announced later at Formal.
