This year's Homecoming was an absolute blast! Chi Omega was paired with the fraternities of Zeta Beta Tau and Lambda Chi Alpha and participated in activities like Can-Struction, bags tournaments, Ruckus at the Rec, and of course, Iowa SHOUT. We placed 2nd overall and we could not be more proud! Read all about our events below! 

Can-Struction was a mad dash to build the best design with canned goods that would be donated at the end of the day. Chi Omega decided to build the children's hospital to honor the kiddos on the 11th floor and to represent the newest Iowa football tradition: The Wave. 

We also had a blast at Ruckus at the Rec! We participated in Tug of War, obstacle courses, and dodgeball. Those who did not play cheered in the stands and caused a ruckus for their sisters. Ruckus at the Rec is always a fun way to bring out our competitive side and cheer each other on.

Our Campus Activities Director, Katie Cabel, played an enormous role in Homecoming Week. She spent countless hours preparing the dances for SHOUT, and making sure the week was a blast for everyone. We are so proud of her dedication and love for this chapter. 

Homecoming Week 2017 was one to remember. I was so proud to see our pairing come together and give it their all at various events. I especially had a blast working with our team for Iowa Shout, and I was absolutely thrilled when we won! It was a great time for me to get close to our new members and share with them how this aspect of Chi Omega holds a special place in my heart! I can’t believe my time as Campus Activities Director is already up, but I look forward to seeing someone else take over and hopefully give their heart and soul to the position because I loved every minute!

Iowa SHOUT is always the highlight of the week (besides the football game, of course)! Each chapter gets a chance to show off with a girls dance, boys dance, and a partner dance. This year, Chi Omega took FIRST PLACE in SHOUT and had a blast doing it!

The dancers worked their butts off for weeks leading up to the performance to make it past try-outs and be able to take the main stage in the IMU! They put in many hours of work each week and the payoff was outstanding!

All of the rehearsals and the performance allowed us to bond even more with our pairing-making new friendships all week long!

As with everyone home game, we also enjoyed seeing our Sisters who perform on the field and pump up the crowd! Kylene Spanbauer is Iowa's Golden Girl, Sydney Albertson and Kayla Drow are on the Iowa Dance Team, and Maria Werner Anderson is a member of the Hawkeye Marching Band!

We finished off the week in a very special way this year. Two of our inspiring alumnae, Brooke Mickelson and Meighan Phillips, took the new first quarter 'WAVE' to the children's hospital a step further. Both Brooke and Meighan have a personal connection to the hospital, as they have experienced firsthand having a child treated at the Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. So they created a shirt to fundraise for the kiddos in the UISFCH. This shirt raised over $100,000 for the Stead Family Children's Hospital in the first 48 hours it was on sale!
