Beta hosts nonalcoholic programs, social events

Before most fraternities began pong tournaments, cocktail events and dance parties one Saturday night this term, guests at Beta Alpha Omega fraternity practiced more coordinated footwork at the fraternity-hosted tango workshop that afternoon.

(11/24/08 9:03am)

We waited with the rest of the world, glued to a muted television in one of Barcelona's English pubs, growing hoarse from yelling at Wolf Blitzer. The place was packed with students, as well as Spaniards, Britons and Belgians -- all concerned citizens.
