Observation Assignment Site Location: The Chi Omega House
Now Katy, the recruitment leader divides the whole group into groups of five for practicing the Make-A-Wish questions. The room is full from the living room to the kitchen table. There is a roar of voices as everyone speaks.
Katy now quiets the room and the members end with singing one of their ritual songs. As our workshop draws to an end and girls leave through the front door, and the girls who live in the house make their way to their rooms.
Observation Two Wednesday, September 8, 2013 Time: 6:00pm-7:30pm 6:00pm-
Our Chapter meeting is begun; girls file in and find chairs or spots on the floor to sit. The meeting is informal, which typically is not the case, you hear girls mumble as
they walk in “Thank God I did not have to change out of gym clothes”. The room is
gathered with faces that look like they enjoyed a long weekend.
The roll is taken by Abby, even though the meeting is informal, it is still mandatory, and attendance will be taken. The amount of sisters lacking in the room
shows many girls chose to skip the meeting. Brit draws a conclusion out loud, “there are a lot of exams this week, I’m sure most peo
ple felt as though they could skip tonight
because of the stress they’re under with school”.
At this time, Sarah gives a presentation of Chi Omega’s GPA standards. “Chi
Omega has set a high bar for us ALL to make above 2.8 GPA, failure to comply with these rules, will result in assigned library hours as a way to help you focus on classes and
Brit is now speaking introducing our house corporation board to all of the
members. “This group of volunteer alumni is here to ensure that
we have a our house taken care of, and looked after in order to reward us with new furniture, better house wares, and lower payments.
“Now that we have that out of the way, I want to remind you all about our November golf tournament.”
Denise, the philanthropy Chair goes on to announce, it is
time to look for donations, or sponsors for our golf tournament, don’t forget to have all
the paperwork turned into me by October 10
Also, there’s a blood drive on campus this week, please go out and donate, wear
Chi Omega letters so that people recognize you on campus.
The meeting will come to a close, and everyone is free to spend their rest of the Sunday night watching football, or studying.
