St. Norbert College celebrated its annual Homecoming during the week of Oct. 25-31. The theme of this year’s 2015 Homecoming was 90s TV shows. St. Norbert College’s Greek and Social Life groups competed in different events throughout the week, and all SNC alumni were invited to attend and watch these events.
Brenna Rathsack ’16, queen of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and a member of Delta Phi Epsilon sorority, stated, “Homecoming really reminds me of all the fun things I get to participate in because I am a part of Greek Life.”
On Sunday, Oct. 25, Homecoming began with Kick-off, Scream Your Theme and Tug-O-War at Schuldes Sports Center. There was a variety of other activities for Greek and Social Life groups and other SNC students to get involved in during the Homecoming week, as well. These activities included men’s volleyball, skits and a roller rave/Homecoming dance. Events ended on Saturday, Oct. 31 with Airbands.
“My favorite event was participating in Airbands,” said Sarah Kick ’17, a member of Kappa Beta Gamma sorority. “A big stage is set up, and being up there and hearing the crowd cheering while performing an act that your sisters and you worked so hard to put together is truly the best part of Homecoming.”
The following sororities and social groups placed as such in the overall Homecoming competition: Delta Phi Epsilon won first place, followed by Theta Phi Alpha in second, Kappa Beta Gamma in third and Untouchables in fourth place.
The following fraternities placed as such in the overall Homecoming competition: Tau Kappa Epsilon won first place, Kappa Sigma won second place and Phi Delta Theta and Delta Upsilon tied for third place.
Molly Farrell ’18, a member of Delta Phi Epsilon sorority stated, “The overall atmosphere of Homecoming was very loud and exciting. Everyone had a smile on their face and was happy to cheer for their social group, sorority or fraternity. I look forward to St. Norbert’s Homecoming next year, because it seems to get better and better!”
Jonathan Carroll ’17, a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, shared his experience about this year’s Homecoming. He stated that the overall atmosphere is “competitive, but, at the same time, there’s a certain sense of Greek and social unity in this week we have planned out for us. Even if we’re pitted against each other, we can still all be together and celebrate that fact, no matter which group we ultimately belong to at the end of the day.”
