Today I took part in something great and truly extraordinary; something that touched hearts. Today, I felt like I made a difference and I know many people who shared in my experience would say the same thing.

As many of you know, most likely from my previous blogs, I am a sister of the wonderful and amazing Delta Sigma Tau sorority. Today we held Breakfast for Bruce. This event was a benefit breakfast in memory of one of our sister’s father who passed away from cancer not too long ago. The breakfast took place this afternoon from 3 – 6 p.m. at a church next to campus. The breakfast included pancakes, sausage, bacon and hash browns. We had many themed raffle baskets at the benefit including Pampered Chef, sports and movies. Hundreds of raffle tickets were sold.  The purpose of the breakfast was to remember our sister’s father and raise money for her family. It is amazing to see how much support we received from the Mount Union campus for this event. Many students bought tickets and came out for the event as well as faculty and staff members, community members and even some families of students. In addition, campus organizations even supported this event through monetary donations or devotion of time at the event. The outcome of the breakfast was wonderful and exceeded our expectations!

It truly is remarkable to see what can happen when a campus can come together to support a cause. I, along with the Delta Sigma Tau sorority, would like to thank everyone for supporting our event and helping to make a difference. Thank you!

Waffles or Pancakes?

Waffles or Pancakes?

The age-old question must be answered. This is a very simple question. Which do you prefer, waffles or pancakes? I am a morning person, which means I love breakfast and everything about it. I love eating cereal, eggs, ham, bacon, yogurt and fruit, but when it comes to waffles or pancakes, I am not sure which I prefer sometimes.

My best friends and I cannot be better friends simply because we cannot agree on the biggest dilemma of them all. One day over the summer, we decided to go onto chatroulette.com and surveyed everyone to find out if they prefer waffles or pancakes. One rule of quick advice: go on that website during the day, it’s simply safer for your viewing. After around four hours of polling strangers, we came across a pretty even battle. It was like flipping a coin; you have the same chances every time. There are simple reasons why people like one or the other – sometimes the taste, sometimes it is easier to spread the butter or sometimes the pool of syrup or other fruit fits just perfect in those little pockets of the waffle. No matter what it is, people have a simple reason that forces them to choose one over the other.

We had to get more creative with this. We came up with a few other possible scenarios.

  • Best pancakes you’ve ever eaten VS. best waffles you’ve ever eaten
  • Frozen waffles VS. frozen pancakes
  • Kresge Court waffle maker VS. chef-made pancakes
  • Mother-made waffles VS. Mother-made pancakes
  • Gross waffles VS gross pancakes
  • Which one taste better at dinner?
  • Why isn’t French toast in this poll?
  • Why can’t I make two waffles with a pancake in the middle?
  • Well… why wouldn’t you make two pancakes with a waffle in the middle?

The list goes on, so much that you eventually get back to the same question, waffles or pancakes? I have to know everyone’s opinion on this important matter. Sometimes I can’t go to sleep simply because I can’t believe how even sided it is! There has to be a definitive one-sided winner.

Let me know what you prefer. Overall, I prefer pancakes.
