Steggy Keggy is a campus event that has been around for over 20 years. A time of laughter fun with friends and root beer floats. This year was marked by a Disney princess theme.
After waiting in the rain for several minutes participants waited to enter the event in the hallways of Steg for over an hour. The fun was worth the wait for several students.
Melanie McDaniel, a first-year NEXT student that experienced Steggy Keggy for the first time, and when asked if the rain put a damper on the fun, replied, “No we got out of it really quickly.” McDaniel later went on to mention her favorite part of the event. “The theme Disney was great! I love how they adapted to make it Northwestern.”
The Disney theme which McDaniel refers to was executed wonderfully by all Steg wings participating.
Students would begin by walking through the first floor, greeted by the women of First North who spun a wonderful NW adaptation of “Moana” with Chef Stacy Roberson being the heart of campus. First South gave a first taste of ring by spring jokes through “Frozen.” Second South had an excellent rendition of “Mulan” that had participants roaring with laughter. Second North presented “Beauty and the Beast” with Gaston as a football player. Third North told “The Little Mermaid” story through a student who traded her tail for legs but would only remain human if she gained a ring by spring. The final wing, Third South did a splendid job with a “Tangled” adaptation, going as far as to move furniture to make the tower. After viewing all the talented acts of the women of Steg performances, participants were invited to vote for their favorite wing while enjoying some rootbeer floats in the Steg lobby.
By the following morning the results were in. Second South’s Mulan won the most hearts of students walking through. The real winners of this event though were the Steg women who worked hard to put this year’s Steggy Keggy together.
Aliee Moquist, a second-year NEXT student and theatre major, got to play Sebastion the crab for Third North’s adventure under the sea. Steggy keggy is one of her favorite campus events and this year was no different.
“The people on my wing are so fun to be around and everyone’s really nice so it was just really fun to hang out with everyone and have a good time together,” Moquist said. “My favorite part of Steggy Keggy was just hanging out with the girls on my wing and waving at everyone having a good time coming to this event.”
Amber Millard, a social work major and the resident assistant of Third North talked about her experience working with her wing to put the event together. “It was a bit chaotic, but that’s what makes it fun!” Millard said. “I loved getting to know each girl better and seeing them use each of their gifts to celebrate something fun for those who came through Steg. My favorite part was decorating. It was fun to see it all come together. I also loved how determined the entire wing was to make it look like we were under the sea!” The chaos was indeed prominent this year between the rain and general fun, but it all came together to give campus a fun time we look forward to every year!
