The Reeve Union Board hosted the event Yell Like Hell, followed by a Lip Sync Battle Friday night to boost school spirit and emphasize team work during Homecoming week in the Reeve Memorial Union Ballroom. Different residence halls competed against each other while Greek life teams consisted of one fraternity and one sorority. The event consisted of two parts: Yell Like Hell and the Lip Sync Battle. The first part of the event was Yell Like Hell where the participants came up with their own rhythms of stomping, clapping and chanting. In the dorm hall division, Fletcher Hall came in first place performing a version of a drum cadence and North Scott Hall came in second p,lace. In the fraternity and sorority division, Alpha Xi Delta and Delta Chi came in first place, performing a Power Rangers themed routine. Omega Delta Phi and Sigma Sigma Sigma came in second place, and Zeta Tau Alpha and Beta Theta Pi came in third place. During the Lip Sync Battle, each participating group chose songs relating to the Heroes of Homecoming theme and choreographed a dance to go with it. Some of the songs that participating groups used were “Go the Distance,” “Heroes (we could be),” “Boom Boom Pow” and the “Power Rangers Theme Song.” In the residence hall division, Fletcher Hall came in first place performing to a mix of “Blank Space,” “Jealous,” and “Break Free.” North Scott Hall came in second place. In the fraternity and sorority division, Alpha Xi Delta and Delta Chi came in first place performing the “Power Rangers Theme Song,” “4 Minutes,” “Bad Blood,” “Fight Song,” “Can’t Hold Us” and other superhero-themed songs. Omega Delta Phi and Sigma Sigma Sigma came in second place and Zeta Tau Alpha and Beta Theta Pi came in third place. Caitlin Cobb, a member of RUB, had a big part in planning the event and said the event is a tradition that many students look forward to each year. Beta Theta Pi member Joe Sobralski said he got involved with his fraternity as a freshman and participating in the event was a great way to get involved with other fraternities and sororities around campus. Beta Theta Pi performed with Zeta Tau Alpha and wore “Incredibles” themed attire. When participating in events like the Lip Sync Battle, Sobralski said his No. 1 tip is to “go into it with an open mind.” Sobralski also said it’s good to go into the battle with a plan. “Always listen to the ladies because they know better dance moves than the guys and always have a positive attitude because it’s always a fun time no matter what you’re doing,” Sobralski said. Attendee Ellie Mauraganis did not participate this year but she said she would consider participating in the future. “It was really cool,” Mauraganis said. “I liked how everyone was interacting. It felt like a really close environment and looked really fun.” Cobb said students can expect to see this event return with a different theme for Homecoming week next year.
