  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Sorority event gives students opportunity to express themselves

When students return from break, the Delta Sigma Theta sorority will start the second round of auditions for its Jabberwock event.

Sydney Howell, treasurer for the sorority and co-coordinator for Jabberwock, said the show has many components.

“Jabberwock is a display of art, culture, fashion and talent held in March every year,” said Howell. “It’s a very classy event.”

Students can audition from 6-8 p.m. Jan. 12, 13 and 14 in the Business Administration building and in the Eppler Complex.

The audition process differs slightly depending on what component of the event students are trying out for.

Howell said those who audition to be models are asked to walk back and forth and female models are asked to walk in heels. She added that those who audition for the talent show are given 2 minutes to present their talent.

Auditioners are contacted a week later to let them know if they got into the show, Howell said.

Jabberwock is also a scholarship program.

Howell said the sorority sets aside funds every year to give out a scholarship at Jabberwock.

Catherine Peterson, co-coordinator for Jabberwock and future financial and recording secretary for Delta Sigma Theta, said that this year the scholarship will be for $150.

Applications are received before the show.

Peterson said the application will be sent out in January and has a GPA requirement and an essay portion.

“At the show, we are going to reveal who the winner of the scholarship is,” Howell said.

Howell first attended Jabberwock last year and said she thought “it was a show like none other.”

She said people think it’s going to be like other fashion or talent shows but “it’s a different spin on that.”

Peterson agreed that Jabberwock stands out.

“It’s more of a variety show,” she said. “It’s not just modeling, it’s not just talents, it’s everything put together.

Peterson said she expects the show to go well this year.

“We have a good theme and we had a good turnout so far for people trying out, so I think we have some good talent,” she said.

Freshman Davesha Perkins said she had not heard of Jabberwock before, but she will probably attend.

“I think some girls on my floor are auditioning,” she said.

Howell said the show will be changing locations this year, moving from the Union Ballroom to Olscamp 101.

She said that this will give the event an “intimate atmosphere.”
