What is the gold tradition?
More than anything the gold side is known for being classy. As great as winning is, it isn’t everything, and we know this for sure. The most important part of college night is the experience we receive from being Gold members. Whenever we get together in large groups and start reminiscing about the Gold side, we are constantly telling stories about how much fun we had with the gold side and the family atmosphere we established and experienced. You will not hear many of these conversations ending in “and that’s how we won”, because winning is only a small bonus, just icing on the cake!

forever. It is beautiful, useful, and
never wears out. Small wonder that gold
has been prized over all else, in all
ages, as a store of value that will
survive the travails of life and the
ravages of time."
