Avast! It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Ahoy mateys! Today is September 19th, which means one thing: International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Although no professors celebrated this day, I had some fun with arrrrrrr few friends! Today I only had three classes, and was done by noon...but I had to work in the afternoon, so I wasn't able to enjoy the beautiful weather! I sure hope this weather keeps up! Although I did buy a few scarves when I went shopping on Sunday, I'm not ready to break out the winter gear quite yet!
Tonight the Greek Council is sponsoring "Making Greek Great" with Lori Hart Ebert, who will be speaking on issues concerning Greek Life and informing independents about Greek Life and some of the benefits. On campus, we have five fraternitites and three sororities, but it is important to know that you don't have to be Greek to hang out with them. As an independent, I feel very welcome by all the Greek organizations on campus and they all get along well with eachother.
At Ripon, as a first-year student, you are not able to pledge until second semester. I think this is a great thing; it gives you the opportunity to get to know people and decide if Greek life is right for you, and if so, which organization matches your personality and your beliefs. Greek is great, but so is independent life! To each his/her own! :)
...And if you decide to be a pirate, we support that too! ;)
Take arrrrrrr easy!
