On Tuesday, April 11, 2017, the Beta Xi Chapter at Auburn University competed in Greek Sing, a dance competiton that the 18 sororities at Auburn compete in each year. Monies raised go to Habitat for Humanity.
This year, Beta Xi's theme was ?ppZ and the dancers performed to songs that had to do with different apps on the iPhone. "Our members performed a phenomenal dance and the crowd absolutely loved it," said Grace Latimer, LAMP Editor and Historian. "Most of the women who compete in Greek Sing start in their freshman year and do it every year until they graduate. This year, our Greek Sing director was Sydney Branson and assistant director was Christina Camp."
When asked about her experience in Greek Sing over the years Sydney said, “My three years of Greek Sing have been, by far, the highlight of my Panhellenic involvement at Auburn. As a dancer my entire life, I thought my performance days were over when I got to college, but it's been nice getting to do what I love with groups of women who have become my best friends. This year's Greek Sing has definitely been my favorite because I got to put so much time, love, and support into this team. But Greek Sing is much more than just another excuse to hang out with the best sisters -- it's the largest philanthropy event Panhellenic puts on each year and it's always received with the highest regards. It's been an honor to be a part of something so meaningful and I'm so glad that Delta Zeta puts so much emphasis on this event!”
Christina said, “Greek Sing is an opportunity for younger college women to meet members who have been in the chapter in the chapter longer. Practices the past three years are where I have found some of my closest friends, who are people I might not have gotten to know otherwise. Like any team, there are times where you get frustrated with each other, but working through those frustrations help us to grow as people and as a chapter. I would not have traded these last three years for anything! I love it!”
"We are so thankful for Sydney and the assistant director, Christina Camp, for creating a flawless routine and leading our women in such a great performance!" Grace concluded.
