Colorful eggs lined the Bill Daniel Student Center as students gathered to celebrate the Easter holiday. Baylor Fraternity and Sorority Life held its first-ever “Hop Day” from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, complete with a variety of seasonal activities.

Among the festivities were an egg hunt, cookie decorating, egg painting and an egg toss. Music filled the Barfield Drawing Room as students gathered in conversation and community. MiSchelle A. Edwards, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Unified Greek Council adviser, began planning the event in the fall alongside other Greek organizations.

“I coordinated this event just to establish a tradition with Fraternity and Sorority Life,” Edwards said. “The theme is ‘Hop Day,’ so this is just an Easter celebration for us to celebrate with all of our Greek councils.”

Fraternity and Sorority Life consists of a number of organizations that make up Greek Life at Baylor. These include traditional fraternities and sororities, as well as multicultural ones. Edwards is a charter member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc., which is part of “The Divine Nine” historically African-American fraternities and sororities at Baylor.
