These past four years have flown by for us seniors, and sadly it is time for us to pack our bags and leave this place for good. It has not yet hit me that this will be my last blog post, or that these are my final days as a senior, but once it all soaks in, I am going to be devastated. It has without a doubt been a great run, Binghamton University.
As the last few days of our senior year approach us, be sure to check out these events to celebrate all that we have accomplished throughout these unforgettable years:

With graduation looming around the corner, senior Lou Toujague was unsure about what career path his life would take him down, but volunteering with Vestal Volunteer Emergency Squad (EMS) put any doubts he had at ease. As a volunteer member of Vestal EMS, Lou follows his passion by responding to emergency calls to provide medical care to patients. He also lives in the EMS facility and drives the ambulance as part of the Vestal EMS Bunk-In program.

Being in a sorority has not only allowed me to make friends and memories that will last a lifetime, but it has also given me the first-hand experience of understanding the importance of an organization coming together to give back to those in need. Greek Life may only be about 13 percent of the student population, but when we all come together to fundraise and give back, our impact is profound and powerful on the Binghamton University campus and beyond.
As co-chair of Alpha Epsilon Phi's Mr. Greek God Competition, I learned the ins and outs of planning and organizing a philanthropy event. After seeing the success of our event and how supportive the rest of the Greek Life community was in making our event so great, I became curious as to what other fraternities and sororities did to give back to their causes. After interviewing representatives from some of the different organizations, I've learned that as great as each organization is on their own, they're even that much better when multiple organizations come together. Let's see what events each organization hosts and how the rest of the Greek Life community supports them!
