Time to refresh and restart!

So a new semester at Mizzou is well underway and a new group of DGs are in position. Danielle is handing over some of her "official" blogging duties to new girls. Get excited to be updated about DG Mu Chapter happenings by a variety of new voices. A group of us will all be putting our two cents in about the great work chapter members are doing around campus and within the house!

Here is a quick semester update for all of you who don't have a source within DG at all times...

DG 100
Yup that's right, dear old Delta Gee Mu Chapter turned 100 last weekend. The extended Founder's Day celebration started Thursday night with a formal dinner at the chapter house. We were so lucky that CMT members and DG alum were able to hear special guest Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Cathy Scroggs speak about Mu Chapter's influence on campus and have her as a dinner guest. Members also spent time socializing with Mu Chapter's Lectureship in Values and Ethics speaker Joan Brock. The next night a dinner for collegians and alum preceded Joan Brock's presentation of her life story "More Than Meets The Eye." The following morning alum and collegians dined together once again at a luncheon that included a "through the decades" fashion show of DG apparel and a performance by the Delta Gamma Centennial Choir. After lunch, all alum were invited to the chapter house for a mock recruitment practice and house tours. An alum dinner later that night split all of the event attendees up by decades so each group could spend time together eating a recalling memories. The weekend finished off with a brunch the next morning and House Corporation meeting attended by all the collegians and some alum. Overall it was a fantastic weekend.

RAMS, Rockin' Against Multiple Sclerosis
DG members once again participated in RAMS, a dance/lip-synch and service competition. Last year DG took first place overall and this year we followed up with a strong showing and earned second place overall! Dancers and lip-synchers preformed to a collection of songs from the musical Grease. Our liaisons Allison Dolan (07) and Brittany Schumate (07) did an excellent job organizing the house for all the RAMS activities and our dance director Annalise Lyons (07) created a really fun routine for a huge group of DG performers.
To see a video of the performance watch the video below!

On March 1 our annual party Pinafore was held. Special Events director Brittany Bloom (07) did an amazing job organizing a great night for all the members and their dates. Girls made funny sailor hats for their dates to wear and everyone loved the pinafore baseball-style shirts designed and organized by director of sportswear Kate Pietroburgo (06). Though some of our scores were not too good, everyone enjoyed bowling and spending the night with their sisters and friends.

There is a lot more from earlier this semester to get updated on, check back soon for some more posts about all the great things that have been happening in our chapter!
