    Homecoming 2009 was full

    of juggling, circus tents, cir-

    cus games and ringleaders. The

    theme this year was Cirque du

    Stout! We teamed up with Chi

    Lambda and from the soap box

    derby to the parade we gave it our

    all! We won best float this year

    and have for the second year in a

    row. We made a cute blue and red

    striped circus tent with a cut-out

    lion and Blue Devil. For our soap-

    box derby car we gained extra

    points by painting a silly faced

    clown on the front along with our

    excellent driver, Martha Boehlke,

    who raced us to 4th place.

    Our nominees for King and Queen

    this year were Jon Howard and

    Kelsey Dodson-Smith. They did a

    great job in all their circus activi-

    ties from Jon shaking his booty to

    circus music to Kelsey imperson-

    ating Miss Britney Spears in her

    circus video! We had a great time

    competing in other events that

    week as well, such as the 24 hour

    couch-a-thon, comedic shows and

    magicians. It was a fabulous

    time and we can't wait for some

    intense competition again next

    year!

  • Hello, my name is Cait-lin Olivieri and I am the Vice President of Recruitment.

    We had another very successful recruitment this fall. We recruited 11 wonderful new ladies (pictured below)! Everyone who came through thought it was a complete success! Each night of frecruitment we dressed alike and decorated the banquet room with our chosen theme. This years theme was Mad Hatter Tea Party. Wednesday night we wore shirts that had a whimsical design and our letters displayed on the

    front. Decorations for that night included brightly colored tea pots, lanterns that hung from the ceil-ing, Alpha Phi paraphernalia, streamers, flowers and lots of glitter covered the room. Thurs-day night was Philanthropy night and we decorated with our classic red, black and white decorations. Katie McCarthy, our director of Philanthropy gave a great infor-mational speech about our foun-dation and the Red Dress Gala. Preference night was Friday night, the final night of formal recruitment. We served a tasty selection of different appetizers,

    created by our alumni, Emily Baugus. We had our traditional philanthropy ceremony, and Krista Jochum shared her story of Alpha Phi with everyone.

    This year was another success because of all the girls great enthusiastic attitudes. Each night was full of energy and all the girls were so approachable, and of course strong, classy and real! I am so excited for the next Vice President of Recruitment, Michelle Cromby, and am looking forward to another successful formal recruitment!

    Hello Sisters,

    As I write this I cant be-

    lieve how fast this year

    went! My name is Teddy

    McFarlane and I served as

    president for the Fall Se-

    mester of 2009. During

    the past year, the Gamma

    Sigma Chapter of Alpha

    Phi has organized very

    successful philanthropy

    events. I am proud to say

    we raised over $3,000 in

    donations for The Alpha

    Phi Foundation. Amongst

    our efforts we have also

    had the time to enjoy sister

    bonding and improve not

    only as a chapter but as

    individuals. We put our

    game faces on for Greek

    Week this past Spring,

    beating out the four other

    sororities on campus to

    bring home the champion-

    ship trophy. I have had a

    great time getting to know

    these girls better by serv-

    ing as their President, and

    would also like to extend

    my congratulations to the

    newly elected officers and

    we are all looking forward

    to what they can do for our

    chapter!
