Every semester the Upsilon chapter of Phi Sigma Rho welcomes a new pledge class during our Greek Tradition night. This year on April 4th we welcomed Emilie and Christina into the chapter as the members of our Mu class. We celebrated the night with chapter history, gifts for the new girls, and togas!
After the Greek festivities were concluded, we all helped make posters for the Avon breast cancer walk. The chapter is participating in the poster posse and is donating signs of encouragement to post along the walk route.

Congratulations to both of you and God bless you in the many years to come.

A bunch of our sisters went to Frontier Fiesta to celebrateand support our school. GO COOGS :)
Events we attended included family day, student variety shows, the carnival rides, watched some of the live bands, and supported our brother fraternity Triangle
at their show. Thanks guys for letting us hang out in your alumni tent! I enjoyed spending some social time with my sisters outside of the library! Looking forward to Frontier Fiesta 2012!

At the University of Houston, every Spring semester, the College of Engineering's IEEE chapter holds a Chili Cook-off. As per usual, Phi Sigma Rho participated in this very popular and fun event. One of our sisters, Kisika, made the chili for our group. The chili, I might add, that secured us second place at the event! We used this event as an opportunity to socialize, fund-raise and publicize our sisterhood.
We all had an amazing time and hope to see there next year!

Starting last semester we formed a team to raise money for the Houston SPCA to help them help Houston's homeless and neglected animals find loving forever homes. This past weekend on March 5, 2011 we participated in the Houston SPCA's Mutt Strut and Runway Race at Bush Intercontinental Airport. We walked with our furry friends on one of the runways along with others who raised money. The weather was not ideal, it was cold and rainy, but we still managed to go through with the walk and have some fun too. Carmel and Elizabeth both participated in the 5K run, but because of the weather the run was turned into a half mile sprint, and a big congratulations goes out to Carmel for winning the girls division of the race. After the run and the walk, awards were handed out to the winners of the race and for the dog costume contest, the tail wagging contest and the best kiss contest. We managed to raise $385 for the Houston SPCA, so thank you to everyone who donated on our behalf.
