(Back then) When people went to college you either joined a sorority or a fraternity. Or were considered a GDI. I joined a fraternity! I became a Little Sister of the Golden Heart for the Sig Ep's. Back then, what that meant (because I think times have changed drastically in this regard) was you poured tea at the annual House Party that the House Mother formally attended
Otherwise it was Animal House.
I loved it. I hung out with the guys. I learned how to drink and how to skip class and how to get by. I was also on "call" so to speak. Whenever a dance or event rolled around, and one of the guys did not have a date, you went if he asked. It was okay, I knew this going in.
Little did I know that one day I would be called upon to go to the Valentine Dance with Rudy! Murray was a fairly large campus at that time in the early 70's. Every girl on that campus knew Rudy. First of all, he was a transfer. Second of all, he was gorgeous. Third, he was a very nice guy.
As you can see, we were drinking Boones Farm Wine. My fav........As you can see, he was wearing a power blue tux! And my naturally straight hair was in some funky hairstyle..but it was a Cinderella type dance for me. I felt like the princess of the ball.
We never went out again. But I have these lovely pictures as proof that once we did.
