Kappa Delta Shamrock 2014


Whether you’re an athlete or simply a fan, get your game-face on because it's time to play ball! 

Kappa Delta is hosting their annual philanthropy event, the Shamrock Softball Tournament, on March 7th through 9th. 

Every year, Kappa Delta’s across America hold "Shamrock Events" in order to raise funds for local and national child abuse prevention efforts. 

OSU's Kappa Delta Nu chapter hosts an annual softball tournament benefitting Stillwater's Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services along with their national philanthropy, Prevent Child Abuse America. This weekend-long tournament has fraternities and teams from the community compete for the title of champion as well a sweet $500 prize. 

Last year, Kappa Delta Nu chapter raised $50,100 through their efforts. This year they're aiming higher!

The event kicks off on March 7th in full-force, complete with an opening ceremony, cookout, raffle and great prizes. After the cookout, the games begin! Emmie Humphry, sophomore Kappa Delta, is the head of Shamrock this year. 

“One of my favorite parts about Shamrock is seeing the way our Greek community comes together for our efforts,” she said. “Whether it’s a game at 8 a.m. or 10 p.m., everyone comes with a great attitude.”

Wondering why the softball tournament is called "Shamrock”? 

"It started probably around thirty years ago," Humphrey said. "The event used to take place on Saint Patrick's Day, hence 'Shamrock,’ and the name stuck! We've hosted the softball tournament at OSU for many years now, and it continues to grow in popularity and success every year."

As a member of Kappa Delta myself, I'm really looking forward to the event. Last year’s tournament was so incredibly cold, I can remember sitting outside in something like 19 degrees! All of us were bundled up in coats and blankets, sipping hot chocolate, while some of the players were sweating and wearing short sleeve shirts. My fingers are crossed for warmer weather this year, but regardless of the temperature the tourney will still be a blast.

Head on out to Stillwater's Sanborn Softball Fields for a fun-filled weekend of softball, while also supporting a great cause!

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
