This past weekend was SO much fun! My sorority had its annual fundraiser for our philanthropy at the Dedman falls (our swanky SMU tanning pool). I was on morning crew so I had the pleasure of waking up at the crack of dawn to set up for our event. Surprisingly, waking up early wasn’t too painful because I was able to hang out with my lovely sisters while hanging posters and setting up the food/music tables.

Right: Everyone is standing around the pool getting ready to watch the costume contest where teams strut through the tanning pool, showing off their outrageous outfits – as you can see I’m quite excited for it to begin!)

During our event, we had all sorts of competitions…a costume contest between all the teams participating, a swimming relay, a relay where each team dragged their coach (every team participating was assigned a girl from our sorority who was their coach) across the pool 4 times, and even a synchronized swimming routine contest, which was hysterical!

All in all, it was a very successful fundraiser for our philanthropy and a huge success with all of the students here at SMU! Can’t wait till this time next year…get excited!
