Sycamore Sync is a Homecoming tradition during in which student Greek organizations compete in a dance off. It will be in Tilson Auditorium Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. You’ll want to make sure you get a seat soon because the turnout is expected to be huge.

This event is especially big for Greek life. During Sync, a fraternity is paired with a sorority and they get to work together to give a great performance.

Carol Schumacher, a member of Chi Omega, reflects on the event fondly. 

“The most fun part is getting to dance, but I also enjoy getting to know the fraternity we are paired with and getting to spend so much time with my sisters. This year we’re paired with Sigma Phi Epsilon,” said Schumacher.

Getting up in front of a crowd sounds like torture to some. For others, this is a dream come true.

“I just love being on stage. I often call it my second home or my happy place. I have done a lot of theater in the past and other activities that put me in front of an audience, so being in the public eye does not scare me as much as it does most people. I thrive in front of a crowd, honestly,” said Schumacher.

The atmosphere at Sync is what people really come for. It’s upbeat and fun, there’s no denying it. Josh Brandle, a freshman at Indiana State, went during his visit to campus last year and it solidified his decision to come here. 

“It was a great time, and I thought that if this was how Indiana State was going to be, then I wanted to be part of it. The vibe of it was really exciting and everyone was so pumped up, like they were just really proud to be Sycamores. It made me want to be a Sycamore that much more,” said Brandle.

Each year, teams try to outdo what was done before and improve the show.

“We focused more on hitting sharp movements and getting out of our comfort zones by doing stunts,” said Schumacher.
