BRING BACK COLLIN
At 4:09 pm the ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha Nu Chapter received a GIN automated text message from the executive team reading, "LAST t-shirt pass out for the semester is tonight from 6:30-7:30, and then surprise goodbye celebration for Collin at 9!" Less than a minute later, Collin, our 15-year veteran security guard got a text from an active asking how he could have kept such a big secret from not only her but the whole chapter. It was the first that he was hearing about. It was clear from his emotionless face as he opened the doors to our dining room and active members screamed, "SURPRISE!" that it was quite a surprise, indeed.
Collin, ZTA'S security guard/quesadilla EXTRAORDINAIRE/top chef/therapist/friend/guardian of the crown is so much more than just a security guard. He is a guy that shows up to work EVERY SINGLE NIGHT @ 9:00 PM excited to see all of his "little sisters" and hear about all of their crazy shenanigans of the day until he leaves @ 5:00 AM. He is so dedicated to his job, that he is always happy to help a ZISTA out and walk her safely home each night from the house or even pick a girl up from a party if necessary. But don't worry, his gourmet microwavable scrambled eggs will be ready by the time that he gets back.
We, as a chapter, are absolutely LIVID about the treatment of the guy that keeps us all company every late night spent at the house studying or grabbing snacks after a night out. We LOVE our security guard and want to fight the disgusting way that he was treated by higher powers. We are a TRUE family here at ZTA Nu and that includes all active members and staff, like Collin.
PLEASE help us keep our GUARDIAN OF THE CROWN!! (and yes, he does have a shirt that has that phrase printed on it as well as a matching five-point crown keychain that he carries around 24/7) Until then, his "going away cake" is "going in the trash"
