This past Tuesday was a night to remember for nearly 1300 UGA students and Athens residents as the 8th Annual Classic City Crawl took place. Each year the Crawl becomes bigger and better, and this year's had the largest number of attendees yet. 20 Athens establishments participated, ranging from restaurants, bars, and even a hair salon. PSE partnered with the UGA Wishmakers to have the Crawl benefit the Make a Wish Foundation.

Gamma spent weeks preparing for the Crawl, and the hard work paid off. Nearly 1300 shirts were sold through street selling, promotion on social media, word-of-mouth, and relentless dedication.

By purchasing a Classic City Crawl t-shirt, 'crawlers' enjoyed deals and discounts throughout the entire day. You could start your day with 10% off breakfast at Waffle House, Tame for a mid-afternoon blowout, a spicy lunch at Wingzone, 20% off a new outfit from J.Crew, 25% off food from Brixx, and then a variety of deals from Athens best late night spots like Flanagans, Silver Dollar, Boarshead, and Allgood. 

I’m so proud of the entire chapter. Everyone pulled their weight to make this year’s Crawl an amazing success!
— Ansley Maness-VP of Marketing and Head Planner of CCC 2016

 

Gamma was especially excited to partner with the UGA Wishmakers to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Make a Wish Foundation. The Make a Wish Foundation grants 'wishes' to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions. This year, the UGA Wishmakers made it their goal to donate enough money to award 400 wishes in the 2016 fiscal year. PSE was able to raise nearly $7k to contribute to the Wishmakers' cause.

Gamma Has Semi-Great Time at First Semi-Formal

Last weekend, PSE-Gamma dawned their classiest attire for the first ever PSE Semi-Formal. Nearly 100 Gamma members and their dates arrived at the house of VP of Special Events Lauren Gerth for an evening of excellent music, good conversation, and most importantly-tacos from Moe's. 

After filling their stomachs with mounds of beef and cheese and participating in various semi-formal games, Gamma ventured downtown for a classic night in the city of Athens. With such a successful semi, members are greatly looking forward to the next and final social of the semester. PSE will join fellow marketing organization AMA for a social at the UGA Ice Dawgs hockey game this Friday, December 4th. 

PSE Has Final Chapter

This past Wednesday, current exec members experienced their last chapter as reigning Vice Presidents. 24 different candidates ran for the 9 available exec positions, including: President, VP of Finance, VP of Marketing, VP of Public Relations, VP of Human Resources, VP of Administration, VP of Professional Development, VP of New Member Development, and VP of Special Events. The 2016 Exec Board will be revealed at the Initiation Banquet taking place Monday, December 7th.

PSE Invades Oktoberfest for Annual New Member Retreat

Every year, the "German-town" of Helen, GA hosts Oktoberfest-and for the past two years Gamma has joined the festivities for a celebration of food, music and most importantly PSE's newest members. 

Gamma loaded up 50 members and took a mini road trip to Helen. Designed to look like a traditional German city, complete with ginger-bread trim and mountain charm, Helen is the perfect setting for an Oktoberfest retreat. Gamma ate bratwursts and pretzels while dancing the night away to classic polka music--not entirely different from a night out in Athens. New and old members were able to mix and mingle German style, forming friendships to last a lifetime.
