100th article: « Meet the chapter »

Hello everyone, I am glad to write you a new article, the first one in the US for the year 2014 (Happy New Year!). I finally arrived last week to a -20 degree weather… I must add that American people have never seen such a bitter cold weather since 20 years. Well, for my 100th article, I wanted to write something special and important to me. Obviously, this article is going to concern Delta Sigma Pi, the fraternity I have joined.  According to the DSP traditions, today was the event « Meet the Chapter« . After 2 weeks of recruiting, Meet the Chapter is THE event when all the potentials (business students who want to join the fraternity) can meet the brothers and also have an interview to get admitted in the pledge process.

This event was really joyful. After the Christmas break, students are not motivated to come back to school. Being together helps a lot! We could meet some new potentials and explain to them how the fraternity works. It was actually -25 degrees outside: it is almost impossible to stay out more than 10 minutes without freezing. Despite the cold temperatures, some potentials pledges braved the cold. I think thus people who came were really interested in pledging at Delta Sigma Pi.

In addition, Professional attire was mandatory: you can’t imagine how many girls were in the bathrooms to change their clothes! I was effectively wearing two sweaters, a jacket, one dress, a jean, a legging, my socks and my boots. I was glad when an IUPUI service employee gave me a ride to the business building. Americans are always helpful!

We took pictures and then, after interviews, we went to the Campus Center in the game room. We had such a great time there, singing karaoke, playing guitar hero and eating pizzas. I think that joining this fraternity was the best idea I have ever had since I am here.  I encourage you to follow DSP_IUPUI on Twitter if you want to know more about that.

PS: As you can see, I changed my camera for a new one… My pictures seem better, don’t they?
