Hitting the stage for another year of Theta Encore were over 5,000 Ole Miss sorority women, who began practicing for this competition weeks ago. It was a full house at the Ford Center on Thursday, November 17th, to watch sororities in silly costumes perform in the annual philanthropy event.

Although this competition may look like all fun and games, the members of Kappa Alpha Theta work year-round to plan Theta Encore, which includes a dance competition and blood-drive. All of the money raised from this event is donated to the national Kappa Alpha Theta Philanthropy, Court Appointed Special Advocates or CASA

The event starts with a performance by Theta who is not in the competition, but still performs every year for fun. Each sorority chooses their own fun music, goofy costumes, and creative themes to perform for the audience who cheer with every group on stage. 

"All the sororities during rush told us how much of a bonding experience this event was, but I figured that was just a way to get us to their house. But, I really have met so many girls in my pledge class and made so many friends. It has been really awesome!" Said Pi Beta Phi freshman, Reagan Gentges.

This is the first big event for the new Greek members and it seems to have all of them loving the decision they made to "Go Greek!"
