In the weeks following recruitment, DePauw Greek life participates in a beloved tradition unique to DePauw: flower-ins. In order to promote unity and welcome the new members of the Greek community, each fraternity will visit all six Panhellenic sororities for a flower-in. At these events, the new fraternity members honor the women with a serenade. The active members then present the new members of their houses one by one, the men giving the women a flower, a hug, and maybe even a kiss. The active members of each house stand by and cheer on the flower-ins in what always ends up being a fun and exciting way to embrace the new additions to Greek life.  READ MORE

Resumes, internships, and my not yet created, but desperately needed LinkedIn account have been consuming my thoughts for the past month.  In a perfect world, my resume would be stellar and well composed, I’d have a summer internship already lined up, and my LinkedIn account would be set up and utilized by possible future employers. But let’s face it, I’m a twenty year old, second semester sophomore, cringing at the idea of growing up, and every day I’m faced with a thousand more things I need to do. But with the guidance of a lot of good people, I’m slowly dealing with all of this…and here’s how. I’ve gotten organized (for the most part...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Personally, I love spreading joy by finding the perfect gift for friends or family. If you just have a few things left on your holiday shopping list all of these are perfect mini gifts for her. I have picked accessories that girls just can’t get enough of.

Unhealthy DePauw Habits I Love

By Becca Wojno

With my last first semester of undergrad about to wrap up, I admit, thinking about the real world has left me feeling sentimental about my home for the last three years. Whether it’s participating in the Monon Bell festivities or experiencing the first snowfall, there’s this gnawing sensation in my stomach that tells me I’ve begun my series of “lasts.” It’s hard to admit, but come graduation, I will no longer be able to eat at Casa Grande multiple times a week or indulge in other habits that are…ahem… maybe not so acceptable after college.
