Homecoming: Despicable Mean Green This year UNTâ€™s homecoming theme was Mean Green on the Big Screen. Our wonderful homecoming chair, Macy Villars decided on basing our week off of everyoneâ€™s favorite, Despicable Me. We were paired with Theta Chi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Phi Omega, Phi Kappa Tau, and Phi Iota Alpha. They were awesome to work with, we all put in so many hours pomping and having fun at the same time. We placed 2nd in the banner competition and 3rd in Chalk the Campus!!! We got very little sleep all week, so that everything could be just the way we wanted it, it was all worth it in the end. A big Thank You to Macy who worked so hard all semester long!
Senior Spotlight: Krissy Costa It seems kind of unreal that I sit here writing this short paragraph about one of my best friends. Since Fall 2010, Krissy has been a dedicated member of our chapter. I do not know anyone who puts their whole heart into this chapter the way Krissy has done. She began her Zeta journey as a very hesitant member and has blossomed into a terrific leader who many younger members look up to and aspire to be. She served on PC as house manager and rocked it! After being on PC for a year, she was asked to join EC and became our Risk Reduction/Standards chair. She brought in new ideas and she developed a position people wanted to be in charge of. This past year she was once again on EC as our VP1 (Coordinator of Committees) and she did nothing less than a phenomenal job. She pushed her PC girls to try new things, to take risks, encouraged them to never give up and to become stronger leaders. As a result of the excellent job that she did to train these girls into the leaders they are now, our 2014 EC consists of 8 of her PC girls. Krissy is truly the definition of everything a Zeta Lady and sister should be. Come May, she will be graduating with a degree in English- she is currently applying to graduate schools all over the country. Although we will miss Krissy, she has gained a place in all our hearts, so she will forever be with us. She has definitely left her mark and legacy here at Gamma Phi and for that we are so thankful.

What better way to end the semester than FORMAL! We were lucky enough to have our Crown and Crest Formal at Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine. We started the night off by having College Guide take pictures and boarding buses. As we arrived to the venue we were seated and served a delicious dinner, awards were given to our best new member, best big and little, Zeta lady, and our always hilarious Senior Awards. We danced the night away and also waited patiently at our photo booth. It was a wonderful night that could not have happened without our Social Chair, Jennifer Garrett.
Congratulationsâ€Ś Fall 13 for getting initiated into our wonderful sisterhood
