Lip Sync With the Greeks

Delta Phi Epsilon Hosts Annual Fall Lip Sync Competition


Lip Sync with GreeksDelta Phi Epsilon raised $1,100 at their annual lip sync contest to support their philanthropy, The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD). Eight acts performed.

Delta Phi Epsilon’s lip sync consisted of performances by students who danced and performed to an array of different genres of music.

These performers, all trying to win the title of first place tried hard to win over the votes of the judges.

There were 11 judges at the event, Michael DonDiego of Tau Kappa Epsilon, Danielle Romano of Zeta Tau Alpha, Louis Marinos of Sigma Pi, Kelly Delle Donne of Alpha Xi Delta, Joe Koenig of Theta Xi, Kelli Ercolano of Phi Sigma Sigma, Lauren Halton of Delta Phi Epsilon, Dayna Zeises of Alpha Sigma Tau, Brian Hentz of Sigma Tau Gamma, Bryan Foley of Phi Sigma Kappa and Devin Buck of Phi Kappa Psi.

The two hosts of the event were Marisa Meiskin of Delta Phi Epsilon and AJ Pappas of Sigma Pi. DJ Sean Johnstone, a senior of Theta Xi, provided music for the event.

Kate Muller, a junior in Delta Phi Epsilon who organized the event said, “It has been tradition to do our lip sync event in the fall and this year we decided to keep that tradition going.”

Muller also commented about their philanthropy and how close to the heart it was for their chapter. “The philanthropy we are fundraising for through this contest is ANAD. As a chapter we are extremely passionate about this particular philanthropy because it is an issue that many of our families and friends have dealt with.”

One active sister of Delta Phi Epsilon who struggles with anorexia said, “Being able to give back to a foundation that saved my life is truly one of the most rewarding and empowering things I could do, not only does it show my appreciation, but it shows how this foundation has helped me in so many different ways.”

According to the ANAD web site this corporation promotes eating disorder awareness and advocates for the development of healthy attitudes, bodies and behaviors.

ANAD is a nonprofit corporation that seeks to prevent and alleviate the problems of eating disorders, especially anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder.

Caitlin Sweeney, freshman, said, “I honestly liked all the acts, it was a really good chance for people to get to know all of the sororities and fraternities especially for the people don’t know a lot about it!”

The first place winners were the boys of Phi Kappa Psi who performed “The Fresh Prince of BelAir.” They won $50 to Chili’s and $10 to Junior’s.

Second place went to Sigma Pi with their performance of Maroon 5’s “Moves like Jagger.” The second place team won a large pizza from Joe’s Pizzeria and $10 to Junior’s.

Third place prize went to the girls of Alpha Xi Delta with their performance of “I Love Rock and Roll.” The girls won a large pizza from Joe’s Pizzeria.

Tyler Havens, Assistant Director of Student Activities for Fraternity and Sorority Life said, “I think that anytime you have the opportunity to educate just one person about your cause, or raise just one dollar for that cause you have a success story.”

Throughout the show, people were clapping, singing along and even dancing themselves.

“The event went very well,” said Muller, “I was happy with the turnout.”
