Transcript strike the gong DEMETRIA CANTU Where else could you find a group of guys dressed up as characters from Revenge of the Nerds, except in the 11th annual Delta Zeta Gong Show. Fraternity members of Omega Delta Phi were cheered for their efforts to imitate the nerds, but Alpha Chi Omega won first place for their version of Jewel's hit song, "Who Will Save Your Soul." The talent show-style event was sponsored by the Delta Zeta sorority, with 13 other fraternities and sororities lending a hand. It raised $1,000 for the Center for Hearing and Speech, a school that assists children who are hearing and speech impaired. "The money that the Gong Show raises goes to help buy the children hearing aids and other items that may help them communicate better," said Delta Zeta member and junior Spanish and communication major Noelle Gusman. Each organization participating presented a skit, song or dance. They had a two-minute time limit, and at the end of that period, the audience had the choice whether to cheer them on or to "gong" them. Delta Zeta also helps the Center for Hearing and Speech in other ways besides raising funds. The sorority goes to the school each year for a Halloween party and an Easter egg hunt, giving the children events to look forward to and visitors to look up to. "The kids get so excited when we come. Their little faces light up. We learn a new letter in sign language at each meeting, so we can try to communicate better. The thing I like about it is that we're not just there to party. We really care," Gusman said. "Yes, the children are disabled, but they just need a little attention in order to utilize their senses, and that's what DZ gives them," said Delta Zeta alumna and "They get so excited when we come. Their little faces light up," Noelle Gusman. communication major Kristie Kline. senior speech Delta Zeta member and Junior Spanish and communications major, Noelle Gusman joins fellow sorority sisters at the Spring annual Phi Mu Greek Feud.
