So, after checking the parties and the events thrown on by the PIXies I got to sit down with one of the stunning ladies of PIX for an interview, R.J. Skye
RC: So, what can you tell me about the PIXies?
RS: Pretty small sorority on campus. The only one actually. We’re trying to build up our numbers, but it’s not half as fun as when you have someone to go against. I do hope someone steps up and start another sorority.
RC: What all is needed to get a sorority started on campus?
RS: A solid plan. Five founding members. And one faculty member to endorse your organization. Then administration just needs to give the go ahead and you can get started. Usually that means putting up a booth and ensuring it has people manning it, or in our case womanning it, to gather in minions. It’s a good way to meet new people and I get the whole sorority thing isn’t for everyone, but it adds another level to campus life. If you ask me, it’s a must.
RC: So tell me what’s it like in the day and life of a sorority girl?
RS: A day in the life of a typical sorority girl? I can’t tell you that. My own? I’m actually in charge of all things pledging in our sorority. But in truth Rhys is the one that did most of the work on the current tasks. Rhys is PIX’s president. So, whenever pledges need help, I try to be there as much as I can. We also try to have someone over at our booth as much as possible. So, when a sister or pledge does not have class, we usually try to push them towards the booth, for a bit at least. There’s classes, work for some and let’s not forget the parties, but we don’t party every day
RC: Yes, the other Rhys, the female one. I’ve met her. That’s a lot of work and she’s definitely got the energy to do it all. I tried to get a hold of her for an interview but she was harder to track down than you were. Anyway, on to new questions. So what was rush week like?
RS: I actually haven’t been part of a rush week yet, but come new academic year, I’m going to have something fun planned for the pledges. Can’t exactly tell you what, but you understand that, right?
RC: *laughs* Right. I understand, it’s super secret and all. But I’m sure it will be entertaining. Well, that’s all the questions I have for you right now. Thank you so much for your time.
RS: Glad I can help then.
And there you have it. Any takers out there? The PIXies are looking for new members, or if you think you have what it takes, why not step up and form another Sorority to share the campus with the PIXies?
Fraternities are needed to. There hasn’t been a fraternity about since the Kappa Alpha Fraternity some time ago. Think you have what it takes? If so, take your ideas to the dean, get admin to back you up and enjoy the ride. This is Rhys Carlier, your campus reporter signing off.
