CLUB & GREEK EDITOR,
“But especially do we thank thee for friends.”
Monmouth University. You have been my home for the past four years, the best four years of my life. You have given me friendship, serenity, sisterhood, love, education, laughter, and so much happiness. From the moment I stepped on to this campus I knew I never wanted to leave. Now that time has come and it’s so hard to say goodbye. Over the years I have formed memories on every corner of this beautiful campus and I can’t help but stop and think about them as I walk towards the fountains, through the tunnel towards the residential side, or glance at Wilson Hall. Attending this school was my dream and to be able to say that I’ve reached it is so bittersweet. From eating Carlos omelets everyday freshmen and sophomore year, to shoving three people into a double room in Redwood 218, to throwing endless pregame parties in The Lawrence House, and getting stung every Thursday night, this is in fact, a goodbye.

It’s officially Greek Week, a.k.a. the best time of year for fraternities and sororities. The organizations have the opportunity to show each other what they’ve really got in competitions such as the talent show, field games, trivia test, and penny wars. Even better, Greek Week also means it is formal season. Basically, the best of both worlds combined into one.
A video of Sigma Alpha Epsilon brothers singing a racist chant surfaced and immediately went viral, forcing the University to shut the brotherhood down on March 9. The media then uncovered that another fraternity, Kappa Delta Rho, was suspended at Penn State after nude photographs of unconscious women were posted on a private Facebook page.
There’s nothing better than spending a lazy Sunday binge-watching your favorite shows. Netflix slyly asks if you’re still watching and without any shame you click continue and move to season six of your favorite show, because you’re a champion.
