Making a Difference through Pups and Philanthropy
On Saturday, September 9th, women will gather together from each sorority chapter at Feel Good Field Day to represent Birmingham-Southern’s campus with fun, philanthropy, and, of course, food. Unlike the previous years, which were filled with competitive games, this year’s event will be centered around the support of the Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS). All BSC women, including our new freshmen class, will make DIY dog and cat toys for the animals currently living in the shelter, many of which were abandoned when their owners fled from Hurricane Harvey. In addition to having a substantial impact on the GBHS, Feel Good Field Day will also impact the Panhellenic community for the better on ’Southern’s campus.
“Feel Good Field Day is a magical time when all BSC women can come together to work towards a common goal,” Christina Harmon, Vice President of Panhellenic Recruitment, says. “It’s a great way for upperclassmen women to meet a few of the women in the freshmen class, while making something so useful for some adorable little pups.”
Julianna Schock, one of this year’s Rho Gammas for the freshmen class, looks forward to witnessing the warm Panhellenic spirit that caused her to go through recruitment her freshman year.
“[The event] gives the Greek Community an opportunity to practice what we preach [through] a physical demonstration of the supportive Panhellenic community on this campus,” Schock says. “It’s beneficial for women [who are] considering Greek Life to see how this community works.”
After the philanthropic portion of the event, the Interfraternity Council will treat the participants to lunch accompanied by corn hole and a variety of other games. Please join us for Feel Good Field Day by the grassy area near the lake on Saturday, September 9th at 11:00 AM for a wonderful, service-filled event!
For any woman still looking to purchase a Feel Good Field Day tank, they will be available in the atrium until Friday, September 8th.
