Second stop on my tour of Iowa landed me at Simpson College in Indianola.
While I mentioend before that George Washington Carver gradudated from ISU, the first college he attended was Simpson College in 1890.
I spent the week with Omicron Deuteron chapter, the Omicron chapter was our first chapter in Iowa founded in 1880. The chapter was closed in 1890 and then re-colonized 100 years later in 1990.
I over-exaggerate my age all the time but really these chapters are keeping me young. To start, they
caught me up or updated me I guess on lingo such as the "Cat's Pajamas", yeah it's makin' a comeback. They let me sleep in the world's highest lofted bed. My floor mates for the week reminded me that a women's true strength is really in the power of her hair straightner. They showed off their T-shirt quilts which only inspired me to polish my domestics skills... I see sewing classes in my near future. And last but not least, they introduced me to Fifty Shades of Grey. Bless their hearts.
