Field day is something many college students haven’t thought about since middle school, but many student organizations continue to host them on college campuses.
On March 25, Fraternity and Sorority Life held a field day to close out their Greek Week celebration.
Six teams were formed by all active Greek letter organizations on campus. Each team battled head to head in a series of games to see who would come out on top by the end of the event.
In one game, team members had to get a cookie from their forehead to their mouths without using their hands. Once the person first in line finished, they had to go to the back and sit down. The first team to have all team members sitting won the game.
In another game, team members had to put their heads on a bat and spin in circles. They then had to run across the field, circle a chair and make it back to their group so the next person could go.
Teams then did a relay where they had to run across the field with balloons and pop them by sitting on them.
The final game was tug of war. Before the game began, a member of one group told his teammates that he had seen Squid Game and that they should copy the hit show’s tug of war stance to seal their win.
After three rounds of tug of war, the field day’s winning team was declared. The group members celebrated with high fives, chest bumps and a group selfie before heading off for food and drinks with the rest of the attendees.
