Round Up 2014

Posted on Thursday, March 27th, 2014 at 11:37am.

 This past weekend here at UT Austin was the infamous annual Round Up weekend. College kids from all over came pouring into Austin just to get into some of the wildest and most fun college parties in the nation. For 60 years, Round up was affiliated with the University as a spring semester weekend for school spirt, homecoming, and parade events, but since 1990 because of several incidents the University decided not to be affilated any longer. That has not stopped kids from coming and celebrating. UT fraternities book rappers, bands, and DJs to perform day and night all weekend long. Sigma Chi had their yard packed tight with girls and boys to watch names like Waka Flocka and ASAP Ferg perform live. It is truly an unbelievable "college party" experience. Most sororities use this popular weekend to raise money for their philanthropy. For example, my sorority Zeta Tau Alpha had a backyard barbaque on Friday that hosted and fed anyone in west campus who paid $5 and then donated all the money to breast cancer awareness. UT kids sure know how to party so thank goodness they know how to study as well!
