West Hampton Drive hummed with the sound of chatter and pop songs this past Thursday night as the annual Theta Twist event took place on the lawn of Kappa Alpha Theta’s sorority house.
The Kappa Alpha Theta girls sported matching turquoise tank tops as they served fresh pretzels to Butler students from 7 to 9 p.m. Each pretzel costed $2, and the sorority donated the funds from the event to the Theta Foundation. The Theta Foundation is a national organization that provides support for women in need.
For the first time, the game Twister was incorporated into the evening’s activities of mingling and pretzel munching. Senior member of Kappa Alpha Theta Sarah Lenahan said Theta aimed to make the night a success as the third sorority event of the school year.
“The earlier this event is in the year, the better it is,” Lenahan said.
The sorority and fraternity events at the different Greek houses in the fall are a great resource for first year students. Students who attend these events have the opportunity to learn about rush week and Greek life by talking directly with members of the different chapters in a casual setting to get their questions answered.
Senior Liz Hauk, a member of Kappa Alpha Theta who has experienced Theta Twist four times now, had positive comments about this year’s event.
“Tonight’s Theta Twist is on par with past years,” Hauk said.
Upcoming sorority and fraternity philanthropy events will hit Butler lawns soon.
