Fort Collins, Co
So 90% of my travel schedule are places I have never been, the state of Colorado included. First stop, was my weekend in Denver (I will share more about that visit soon) and then I headed to Fort Collins! Excited for this visit because I finally saw a round of recruitment. I have been working with chapters on pre-recruitment planning, which I love but it's something about a full event schedule that gets me really excited for recruitment. I keep telling everyone my visits are like watching a movie and leaving before it's over. I never quite see what really happens. Oh and did I mention it was the weekend that college football began . . . a big light at the end of the tunnel.
I spent the first night with the Chapter Council officers, we wrote notes to the Membership Chairman and New Member Chairman wishing them well on all the hard work they have put into upcoming events.
I became a Colorado Rockies fan when I found out I was related to Todd Helton.
You may have seen this on the local news Tosh.0 or CNN, but this is the infamous Ram's Point Pool.
Laura and I went up to the hillside "A" and along the way stopped to take in this beautiful view of Horsetooth Reservoir. It was absolutely stunning!
Where the Colorado State Rams play!
Hillside looking down on the "A". The "U" and the "M" were cement blocks. The "A" was literally painted on the mountain. The freshman hike up to the "A" every year and apply a fresh coat of paint. The "A" also serves as a land marker for planes. In the 1980's students petitioned for the "A"to be changed to a "R" but the Federal Aviation Administration prevented it from happening. So now the "A", is the largest reminder that CSU, will always be an agricultural school.
"A" is for Aggies
A blurry but great picture of Horsetooth Rock.
A Rho Gamma is a recruitment guide who disaffiliates during the time of recruitment. She has a group of potential new members who she works with and supports as they go through the recruitment process.
The Rho Gammas at CSU all move into a hotel for the week of recruitment. So this was the last time the chapter saw them till Bid Day!
wish this was my work uniform. I would love nothing more than to tote around sequin skirts, Kappa shirts and boots in my suitcase.
Thanks for Fort Collins for an incredible week!
Hope to see you soon,
