Bobcat Homecoming

Homecoming weekend was very exciting for our Fraternity and Sorority community. Many of our houses started off the weekend with barbecues and get-togethers with visiting alumni. In addition to hosting events, all the houses put together floats for the homecoming parade Saturday morning. The themes for the floats were varied but the Bobcat spirit was the same! After attending the parade, the next stop was the homecoming football game!

2015 Homecoming Court

This year our Bobcat Homecoming Court had many Fraternity and Sorority members on it. All of the homecoming king candidates were members of fraternities and 3 out of the 4 homecoming queen candidates were members of sororities! Our 2015 Homecoming Court was:

  • Cali Christiansen and Chris Eddlemon (Sigma Chi)
  • Karly Terrell (Chi Omega) and Colt Coffee (Sigma Chi)
  • Shannon Bangen (Chi Omega) and Cody Howell (Sigma Phi Epsilon)
  • Laura Wilson (Alpha Omicron Pi) and John Miller (Pi Kappa Alpha)

We would like to congratulate Cali Christiansen and Chris Eddlemon for being selected as Homecoming Queen and Homecoming King this year!

The Fraternity and Sorority community enjoyed sharing our Bobcat spirit with our alumni and our community this weekend and we can’t wait to do so again!

Enjoying the Summer!

The members of our Fraternity and Sorority have been very busy this summer! Between internships and international travel, these men and women have been making memories that will last a lifetime!

Recently, several of our sorority women have attended their national conferences! From the big smiles on their faces, you can tell that they are very excited about the ideas and plans they are going to bring back to Montana State this year!

Wow!

Several members of the community have been traveling and sharing their experiences with us. It looks members of Montana State’s Fraternity and Sorority community have been on just about every continent this summer! Below are some of their adventures!

Brotherhood

We blog a lot about sisterhood events, so this post is to give you an idea of the fun of brotherhood!

Kappa Sigma has an annual “Snow Bowl” where their older members battle the younger members for glory and bragging rights. Winners this year? 35-7, the older members, of course.

Sigma Phi Epsilon held their annual brotherhood retreat, filled with fun and learning. Here’s a picture of just a few of the members doing their best job at modeling. The picture below that is one of a brotherhood bonfire earlier in the semester at Hyalite

The men of Pi Kappa Alpha are always willing to have a brotherhood if it involves a good BBQ

Greek Week 2015

Greek week, a friendly competition among the fraternities and sorority, was held in April this year. A committee had worked hard all semester to determine the competitions and point breakdowns, receiving input from fraternity and sorority members and revising the previous years competitions. Here is the breakdown of what the week entailed:

Round One: Bubble Soccer

Round 2: Lip Sync

Round 3: Chariot Races (see our facebook page for video)

End of Greek Week: BBQ at Kappa Sigma

The competitions were fun and friendly. Pi Beta Phi received the winning title, but it was a close match!

Catapalooza 2014: Go Fraternity & Sorority Life!

We Fraternity & Sorority Members here at MSU just LOVE Catapalooza, because it gives us a chance to tell everyone why we also love being a member of Fraternity & Sorority Life!

Didn’t get the chance to walk up and down Catapalooza or see all of our booths? Don’t worry, you can see them here!

Spring Break: FS Life Style

Spring Break was just last week, and Fraternity and Sorority members took full advantage. While some went home and spent time with families and friends, many others traveled with their Fraternity and Sorority friends to vacation spots and each others hometowns. Check out some of the fun:

The men of Alpha Gamma Rho made breakfast for the women of Alpha Gamma Delta the other morning, and left behind a fun surprise. Can you see what eye mean??

A Happy Valentine’s Day for Us!

The Fraternity & Sorority Community is having a great valentines day!

Flowers are being delivered here, there and everywhere by AOPi and AGD as part of their “Flowers for a Future”, which is raising money for their separate philanthropies. People purchased flowers all week, to be delivered today to the individuals of their choice.

Chi Omega had a wonderful surprise this morning, with the men of Sigma Phi Epsilon singing them a custom edition of “Soul Sister” before making them breakfast. What a treat! Check out this video to hear the lovely voices of the Sig Ep men.

We wish a Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Hopefully you are as lucky as we have been to feel the love from such a great community!

Dinner Date: Kappa and AOPi

Kappa Sigma and Alpha Omicron Pi had a formal dinner at AOPi to get to know each other better. Looks like they are right on track for the goal set by IFC and Panhel to strengthen the relationships between houses in our community!
