Zeta Rho continued its efforts to bless other clubs on campus through cookies last week. Each women’s social club received an assortment of cookies on Feb. 6 during Sing Song practice, courtesy of two Zeta Rho members.
Sarah Holley, a sophomore social studies for secondary education major from Spring, was one of the Zeta Rho members to deliver cookies.
“It’s a Zeta Rho tradition to bring cookies during pledging and Sing Song because we want to bless other clubs and we do that through cookies,” Holley said.
The women in all the social clubs had a positive reaction to the Sing Song practice interruption. “They applauded us and everybody said thank you,” Holley said. “It’s one of the things we’re known for, and it’s really fun.”
Lori Eddy, a junior speech pathology major from San Antonio, and a member of GATA social club appreciated the cookies brought by Zeta Rho.
“Cookies make everything better so it was a welcome break from singing and songing to stop and have a cookie,” Eddy said.
The foundation of Zeta Rho is one of service. The club started the tradition of baking cookies for other social clubs during its first semester back on campus last Spring during their pledging.
“We want to be a club that blesses other people and other clubs, and this is one of the ways we do that,” Holley said.
This semester Zeta Rho continued this tradition despite having its own Sing Song act.
Other clubs notice the way Zeta Rho has gone out of its way through delivering cookies.
“I though it was really sweet of them to take time out of their busy schedules to make cookies for all of the clubs,” Eddy said.
Men’s social clubs have not been left out of this tradition. All the men’s clubs recieved their own cookie assortment from Zeta Rho later on in the week during their Sing Song practices.
