Pledging on ACU’s campus is nearing its end of the season. However, a couple social clubs had something special to celebrate this year.
Two ACU female social clubs celebrated anniversaries with special activities at ACU Homecoming last week. Ko Jo Kai marked its 100th anniversary. Meanwhile, Sigma Theta Chi celebrated its 50th anniversary.
Both of these social clubs celebrated by inviting a former social club alumni. Ko Jo Kai invited its oldest living member, 102-year-old Eloise Carruthers, to join members in the parade.
Sigma Theta Chi invited social club alumnae to walk with current students in the parade.
During their time of celebration, social clubs on campus selected students on campus to pledge, giving them specific, and often confusing, tasks to complete.
Ko Jo Kai president Sarah Ross says that while pledging requires a lot of work, it is something that brings a lot of opportunity.
