Guatemalan Encounters: Quinceañera

Even though my birthday celebrations came to an end, that did not mean that the fun had to stop. Recently, my family and I were invited to celebrate the fifteenth birthday of one of our family friends. In Latin countries, Los Quinces is the equivalent of a Sweet Sixteen for Americans. Celebrations may vary from family to family — some decide to give the birthday boy or girl a party or a trip to any place in the world. Nevertheless, if...

Guatemalan Encounters: Paint Fusion Party

My birthday celebrations continued with a party called "Paint Fusion" at a club in Guatemala called Sin Prive. I had never gone to this place until that night. Well, I lie... the last time I ever went there, about three years ago, it was under another name. In Guatemala, the life of a club is of about the length of the summer, and the "it" club changes regularly. My sister was the one who told me that everyone was going to Sin Prive...

Super Bowl Sunday

Chicken wings, Subway sandwiches, pizza, and beer. These are, from what I have noticed, the perfect ingredients for a Super Bowl Sunday.

Past years I have spent it with my family back home, since I was still in Guatemala, but these last two years I have spent it here in...

While it has changed much since my freshman year (time flies!), it is still an event that creates a lot of buzz around campus and where everyone, from alumni, administration, students, teachers, and parents get involved. I have seen it from some different sides,...

Masquerade Ball

You are formally invited to a behind-the-scenes look at the Theta Chi Masquerade Ball. Even though this was a very exclusive mixer the brothers had with the theatre and arts administration majors, I will give you some insight on it. The planning for this party began two weeks in advance, when the brothers got together to talk about how to carry out a party that would amaze the theatre majors. Halloween decorations were set up all over...

Date-A-Chi

I was sold for $35. Theta Chi Fraternity held its famously known brother auction "Date-A-Chi" last Thursday, and every single brother was sold for a reasonable amount of money. This event is not exactly what you think, but at the same time it is. During this event, all of the brothers must go one by one, strut around all the participants to a tune of their choice and offer something. Most brothers offer a nice dinner out in the city,...
