Nu Kappa Psi, also known as Noble Kings, hosted its probate Friday for the second time since it became a campus social club.
The probate is an event during which the newest club members perform chants, songs and dances in front of a crowd. The vice president of the club, Roland Campos, said it is how they can showcase the new pledge class in an entertaining way.
The reason for the pr0bate is to show off the culture of Nu Kappa Psi, and to show what we are about” said Campos, sophomore information technology major from Dallas.
In order to prepare for the event, the pledge class had probate practices where they worked on their performance and studied performances of national fraternity probates. This is one of the reasons why the event was held a few weeks after pledging ends.
Campos pledged with the club last semester and was part of the first probate they had.
“It was a rush of adrenaline, it felt great,” Campos said. “There were a lot of people there and I felt like the crowd was really into it. Every time they cheered us on it was an amazing feeling.”
While the format of the event remained the same, new chants and dances were displayed this year.
