Being social is an important part of college experiences and fraternity life, and FIJI at USD strives to make the most of the social scene each year. Through exchanges with each of the sororities at USD and formal events throughout the year, FIJI brothers have plenty of opportunities to have a good time during their college days. Some of our past social events include:
Beginning in 2013, we created a FIJI Sweetheart Award, which was given to a sorority member who went above and beyond her duty as a sister. Nominations came from a different sorority every two weeks and the men of our colony selected our sweetheart based on the description of her outstanding acts. After selection, our corresponding secretary delivered flowers to the winner during their chapter meetings.
FIJI SANTA CLAUS:
Taking place during the last weeks of the fall semester, members of the fraternity dress up as Santa Claus and his elves for the campus community to take pictures with to help lighten the mood during what should be a fun, but often stressful time.
Every semester during finals, FIJI at USD orders close to 300 roses and hands them out during finals to all the women studying in the library and other places on campus as a pick me up during finals week.
Whether it involves meeting up for a brunch, ice-skating, or just a dance, Fiji loves spending time with the sororities from campus.
Taking place annually in the Spring, the colony is excited to continue this international FIJI tradition.
