Panhellenic’s Annual Running of the Bulls

Yes, everyone, that time of year has once again fallen upon us. Yesterday, the HUB lawn was blanketed with jumping, screaming girls gushing over their acceptance to their (hopefully) top choice of sorority.

As they made their way down the hill, every sorority chanted their own sing-song rallies and welcomed their new members with lots of hugging and squealing.
