Who You Gonna Call

Who You Gonna Call

We’re living in dark days, Greeks. First, we survived the great blackout of 2013 and then struggled through Snowpocalypse 2014, barely making it out alive. That was all child’s play. I have something to report that is much, much scarier: ghosts are taking over our Greek houses. Yes, you heard me right. Go ahead and let that sink in for a minute. Am I crazy? Quite possibly. But am I an idiot? Absolutely not. Although professionals have said that we are in no immediate danger from these ghosts, we must prepare for the worst.


The most infamous ghost on campus is Karol, the Kappa Ghost. Although 4th Street. is the only boundary between AKΛ and KKΓ, I’ve never had any face-to-face interactions with Karol. However, Odyssey  friend and member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, Allie Snyder, has. According to her eyewitness account, Allie and her roommate – who chose to remain anonymous – were quietly sleeping one night when she felt “someone touching her.” When she awoke, no one else was in the room. Sure, it could have been her roomie, but she reported the same eerie occurrence the next morning. It’s known around Kappa that Karol is very “handsy” and likes to touch the girls while they sleep (yes, it's as creepy as it sounds). Allie also said that Karol is partial to music, especially Emblem3’s, Chloe, so whenever there’s music on in the bathroom she cranks it as high as the stereo goes. If you’re ever at Kappa, be sure to avoid the bathrooms and the basement hallway, as that’s where she likes to lurk.


I’m no ghost expert. Alll my ghost info comes from Ghostbusters and Casper the Friendly Ghost. So to be credible, I did a little Googling to see what I could find. You’d be surprised to know that Karol isn’t the only ghost who has settled down in a sorority. At the University of Georgia, both the Phi Mu and Alpha Gamma Delta houses are reportedly haunted. The ghost of Anna Hamilton haunts Phi Mu, as she allegedly witnessed a group of people murder her boyfriend and bury him under the front steps. Girls have been able to contact her, from time to time, via a Ouija board. I’m a little skeptical on how reliable these are, but after watching Paranormal Activity I’m way too scared to find out for myself. Seems legit. The AΓΔ house is home to their ghost, Suzie, who hung herself in the attic after being stood up at her wedding. Girls have said that they can sometimes see her glaring from the house’s front window when they’re with boyfriends. I hate to say it, Purdue, but these aren’t promising signs.


But wait! Two brave Purdue men are here for our rescue. Ryan Nobis and Dan Heath are risking their lives to curse out the demons and ghosts living in your houses. Under the name Sorority Séance, these two can offer you protection and a solution to your spirit situations. Why are they starting this business, you might ask? Ryan and Dan are “men for others” as they like to call it. Although we’re beginning to come out of the recession, Dan knows that times can be tough. “I didn’t want sororities to try and cut corners and save money by performing exorcisms themselves. It’s a risky business to be in. Trust me, I know, but that’s why they call me Danger Dan.”


While they’re pretty cheap and easy, they do have their costs. When I asked Ryan about their fees, he said it was simple. “A standard exorcism is $100, but we run on the barter system, so we’ll work something out. A couple of Cactus cups sounds like a pretty good deal to me.”  You can contact Sorority Séance by Facebooking Dan or Ryan or by sending an email to SororitySéancePU@gmail.com. They can start work immediately.


While the threat of being fondled by ghosts is getting increasingly stronger, there are individuals and organizations that are more than willing to put their lives on the line for you. So when the time comes, make sure you do the right thing and make that call. Who knows? You could save a life or two.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
