Songfest ends Greek Week on a high note
“It’s all just for a good cause,” kinesiology sophomore Emily Brehmer said. “No one is really judging, it’s just for fun.”
Although Songfest, which was Wednesday night at the Breslin Center, doesn’t carry as much pressure as MTV Night, Brehmer said she still felt nervous going on stage.
In the end, she said she had fun dancing in front of all her friends in greek life.
She added that all the nerves and preparation were worth it in the end.
Meeting the members of the fraternity she worked with was Brehmer’s favorite part.
She said they hadn’t had socials or other events with them this year, so this was her only opportunity to become close with the brothers again.
For Brehmer, Songfest was a good way to showcase all the hard work her team put in.
She said this tradition shows members of greek life that they all have similar interests. That the entire community can dance and do fun things together.
Supply chain management freshman Nick Charon said he enjoyed getting to spend time with his teammates each night.
“This being my first year on campus, you can see a lot of the faces of greek life and it makes you realize that it’s out there and we’re actually doing it,” Charon said.
Education freshman Elizabeth Reimers said she has been a dancer for several years, so once she got on stage and the music started the routine came easily.
“It was honestly so fun to represent Delta Gamma and just to be on that stage in front of all of greek life,” Reimers said.
After the performance, she said it was awesome to know her team had so much fun together, and they had left it all on the stage.
“I know it’s cheesy, but we really had great friendships and great bonds and I know it’s not going to be over after this,” Reimers said.
She said she thinks the tradition of Songfest is important simply because people look forward to it every year.
“It’s part of the whole Greek Week spirit,” Reimers said. “When people come back as alumni they’ll say, ‘I did that once too.’”
