a task. Usually, the tasks are pretty simple, but they are created to scare the pledges. For example we told one pledge to chew on a piece of glass. Then we put an eggshell in his mouth. Since he was blindfolded, there was no way for him to know whether the object was really glass until he chewed it. It really is harmless, but all in good fun. When we brought Milan out to perform her task, Chris whispered something in her ear. I couldn’t hear all of what Chris said but I know I heard the words “tower” and “flag.” After hearing what Chris said, Milan snatched off the blindfold, grabbed the flag from Chris’ hand and started running toward the campus center. Chris and a couple of the other Gammas, including myself, ran after her. The next thing I knew, we were chasing Milan up the clock tower. Chris was right behind her. By the time the rest of us caught up to the two of them, Milan had fallen off the tower. Only Chris was close enough to see what had happened. I am sure, however, that Chris pushed her. I bet s/he had been planning to kill her all along.
