Last night, to end the semester, we held a banquet in the Josephine Louise Ballroom on campus. We told our brothers to wear their best cocktail attire as we rolled out the red carpet for this We decorated the room with PAD memorabilia, including the PAD crest, PAD letter flag, and the PAD banner we made earlier this semester. We had food catered from Rouses, ranging from Baked Mac and Cheese to Chicken Alfredo Pasta, and a selection of desserts such as cupcakes and cookies. We initiated eight numbers into our fraternity last night. We informed them of what their responsibilities as brothers and about the history of PAD as they then proceeded to sign the scroll of our chapter.
Next, we had a very heartfelt video put together by Celina Sokol, one of our Membership Chairs, that featured photos and videos from this semester. We also had several of our abroad brothers, including Wendy Cohen, Alex Freedman, Maya Fromm, and Nicole Roca send in videos about how their adventures abroad have been. We can’t wait for them to come back next semester! Even some of our alumni, including past Membership Chair Zach Benson, past President Armando Marin, and past Vice President Brandi Doyal! It was so nice to see their faces again!
Our evening concluded with the PADwards Ceremony. We asked brothers to nominate other brothers for different superlatives. A few example are PAD Superstar, Most PAD Spirit, Fashion King and Fashion Queen, Most Likely to be a Supreme Court Justice, and many others! Then, we took the Top 5 Nominations and allowed brothers to vote on whomever they thought was the best fit! It was an amazing ceremony and we had some very deserving winners!
Thank you all for a great semester! We have enjoyed it so much. See you all Spring 2019!
