The Inter Fraternity Council (IFC) and the Panhellenic Council worked together to play a few games of kickball against each other.
The games of kickball were held at the Owl baseball fields on campus at 3 p.m. Sept. 24.
Senior Olivia Ploof, president of the Panhellenic, said “We really wanted to do something to start off the year incorporating both [the] IFC and Panhell[enic].”
“It’s like a fun little nod to elementary school,” said Ploof.
Additionally, junior Deacon Cormier, president of the IFC, added it was a great way for them to blow off some steam. “Kickball is a good opportunity to do that,” said Cormier.
All Fraternity and Sorority members were allowed to play on the same team as each other.
Cormier noted that the potential new members were not allowed to play, but were encouraged to go to watch and hang out.
Ploof said she wanted to show the potential new members that “we’re not all rituals, formalities, fundraising [and] things like that. We actually have fun.”It is a good way for community building between the members and the potential new members.
Ploof and Cormier both expressed the want to work together more often on events. “This is the year we’re finally feeling comfortable with each other,” Ploof said.
The COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the IFC and the Panhellenic working together. With the pandemic finally slowing down, they are now able to “collaborate” more often.
