Yup that's right, a storm of "historic" proportions is about to hit Columbia. And while no one really likes scraping ice off of their car or "ice-skating" across campus, we are all excited for a Snow Day tomorrow! If you are anywhere in the Mid-Missouri area we hope you stay safe (and warm) - keep us in your thoughts as we sleep-in and enjoy our day off.

For the first time in recorded Mizzou history, the University of Missouri will cancel classes for a second day in a row... can you say SnowPeat! The snow has not stopped falling and us students could not be happier. Safe and warm wishes from Mu Chapter to you!

December grads!

Not everyone needs four full years to complete college - December graduates Lauren O'Brien (PC 07 - pictured left) and Taylor Allen (PC 07 - pictured right) prove that. Both Mu members 'walked' in December and are now proud University of Missouri and Delta Gamma Mu Chapter alums.

The entire chapter (and especially the 2007 pledge class) will miss the girls this spring, but we are excited to hear all about their "big kid" adventures in the real world.

Congrats - we wish you the best - ITB

Copper Mountain - Lifestylez Trip 2011!

Members of Mu started the new year off right with a week of skiing at beautiful Copper Mountain, Colorado. Mu members from every active pledge class hit the slopes with over 600 Mizzou other students for five days of sun and ski. Check out these photos from the trip - we are happy everyone made it back in one piece (almost) and had fun bringing a little bit of Missouri to the Rockies! Special thank you to Kathryn (pc 08) and Libby (pc 10) for being the Delta Gamma reps and organizing the rooms and rentals for our group!
