    Sigma Lambda Alpha’s eighth annual “Stroll Off” brought in a large crowd of students, faculty and adults that filled the Brown-Lupton University Union Auditorium.

    This year, the event brought in more Panhellenic participation than previous years.

    Panhellenic sororities Alpha Omicron Pi, Gamma Phi Beta and Sigma Kappa all had teams competing in the Stroll Off.

    Jordan Talley, sophomore child development major and Panhellenic member, said that she loved being able to participate in the event.

    “It was so exciting being there and dancing in front of everyone,” Talley said. “I think it’s important that we as Panhellenic members support other council’s events because at the end of the day we are all Greek and have similar values.”

    Other female teams included TCU’s Delta Sigma Theta Incorporated and Sigma Lambda Alpha members from Oklahoma State University and the University of Texas at San Antonio.

    Male teams consisted of Omega Psi Phi and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia from TCU, Sigma Lambda Beta from the University of Texas at Brownsville and Theta Delta Phi from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

    The competition was split into two divisions: male and female.

    Teams competed in front of a panel of six judges for a total of three rounds, who eliminated teams each round.

    The Stroll Off wasn’t just for the competing teams but for the crowd as well.

    Attendees cheered and danced from their seats as they watched their favorite teams compete.

    Intermissions between rounds were geared toward crowd involvement, which included a dance-off and a Greek Alphabet competition.

    “I liked how the crowd got really into it because even if you weren’t dancing, you were still a participant in the whole event,” said Francesca Roberts, junior accounting major.

    The night concluded with an impromptu dance party for all who were in attendance.
