In Case You Missed It. And Happy Pi(e) Day!

Happy Pi(e) Day everyone! Today holds a special place in my heart for a few reasons. First and foremost, I love pie. Sweet or savory, I much prefer pie over cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, etc. Second, when I was in college, my sorority had something called Strive for Pi. IHQ (international headquarters) encouraged us to have at least a 3.14 GPA each semester. Those of us that fell below that mark were put on academic probation until the grades could get pulled up. Those of us that had GPAs higher than 3.14 celebrated with Pi Night: A magical night where we ate different kinds of pie and had the chance to “pie the prez”, where we our president (or sometimes on of the VPs if our president didn’t want to) would volunteer to let us throw whipped cream pies at her.

Pie the Prez

It was more fun (for everyone) than it looks. As you can imagine, Pi Night usually turned into a whipped cream fight but I’m not complaining. Those were some of my favorite nights spent with my sisters.

In case you missed it, here are some links worth reading:

  • Molly @ The Move to America

    Haha, looks like a fun way to celebrate St Paddy’s Day! Have a good one – it’s my first in the US, but we have nothing planned … maybe next year I can get into the swing of things more!

    • Nicole @ Treasure Tromp

      I hope that you enjoyed your first St Paddy’s day in the states!

  • Megan C. Stroup

    We Alpha Delta Pi ladies love our Pi Day as well!

    • Nicole @ Treasure Tromp

      oh yes!! Did you ever do anything pie related?

      • Megan C. Stroup

        My chapter didn’t, but when I was traveling last year a lot of chapters did pie fundraisers (either pie bake sales or “Pie-a-Pi” where students could pie officers in the face haha). I think my chapter should have done something!
