This past week our active members have had a blast getting to know the members of Theta Chi, Phi Mu, and Delta Kappa Epsilon in our pairing, “Fratatouille.” We participated in a variety of events to celebrate Greek Life and Gopher Pride.
On Monday and Tuesday, the pairing met at DKE to create our pomping masterpiece of Goldy in a Chef hat as our tribute to the pairing name and gopher spirit.
On Wednesday Lambda Delta Phi raised $705 for the 2018 Gopher Plunge to benefit Special Olympics. Active members Mariella, Amanda T, Kari, Taylor, and Hannah all braved the cold along with other members from the “Fratatouille” team. The entire event raised $12,951.
The main events concluded on Thursday with LipSync. Active members Sami and Megan represented LDPhi on the stage. We are so proud of all the hard work they’ve put into preparing their routine.
The final event will be on Saturday with us cheering on Gopher Football game against Iowa. We are so honored to be a part of this university and represent Gopher spirit. 2018 Homecoming was a great time and we can’t wait for Homecoming 2019!
