Of the six social clubs accepting spring pledges, only Frater Sodalis will participate in Sing Song with an act. In addition to this, Pi Kappa will be Sing Song security and Tri Kappa Gamma will distribute programs.
Frater Sodalis president Randy Trowell said that participating in Sing Song and pledging at the same time might add a little more to their plates as far as time constrictions, but he doesn’t foresee a huge problem.
“It’s been a Frat tradition to take a spring pledge class,” he said.
Michael Dockery, Pi Kappa president, said his club will be supporting Sing Song as security and praying for those participating, and that his members hope to enjoy the show.
“At this point it is important to us to focus more on the guys that are pledging and on our retreat,” Dockery said. “We’re still participating as much as we can in Sing Song, except now they are paying us with T-shirts.”
Dockery said Pi Kappa is expecting six or seven men to pledge, which is “not bad for a spring pledge class.”
Tri Kappa Gamma is expecting two pledges for the spring, both of whom they are looking forward to having, said president Cherie Miller.
Miller said that the club is trying to get back to why they were founded, who they are and what club means.
The club wanted to do something to help Sing Song and considered baking cookies for all those involved, but because of the time constraints on pledging decided to help by passing out programs.
“Even though we are small, we want to be involved at ACU,” Miller said. “This is a fun way to do that and serve at the same time.”
Students interested in pledging ranked clubs Wednesday, received bids on Thursday and will begin Bid Night on Friday.
