The traditions of Theta Sigma Tau
Traditions have to have a beginning somewhere and at Live-In in the spring of 2003 there was the start of a new one: Story Time.
It has been a tradition since at least the early 80s to tell the newly activated members secret stories of the House. It's fun, it sort of indoctrinates the new actives, and it recalls the House's past. But there are so many stories that don't get told!
The members thought that it would be a fun and group bonding (not bondage, you pervs) experience if the alumni that attended Live-In related some tales of their exploits while at Tau. And that's what they did: telling stories, answering questions, bouncing memories off of each other. Some stories were sent in from alumni who could not attend. Bruce Davis (82) sent in an interesting retelling of the reasons why the House went co-ed in 1980. If you would like to see a copy of the email, you can go here if you are a member.
Most attendees seemed to enjoy it - pledges, alumni, and actives alike. The first year it was held the night after Tau Trivia, but in the future it will probably be held the night before... maybe the pledges can manage to learn a few answers before they get put in the hot seat.
