GET DIRTY FOR MUDTUG

That was the slogan of this years MudTug competition overthe weekend. MudTug is an annual campus-wide tug-of-war competition put on bythe sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha and the brothers of Phi Kappa Psi, and is one ofthe LARGEST traditions on the RIT campus. 

MudTug was first stared 14 years ago by a Zeta and a Phi Psibrother who were looking for an event that would reach all members of thecommunity and campus (the founders would later get married after their undergarduate years at RIT). The first MT was in September of '95,and raised over 18 hundred dollars towards the houses philanthropies. Today MT hasmorphed into a tradition notorious for dirty compeition and muddy morals … thispast weekends competition included over 85 teams and raised over $6,500 for theFisher House.

Here are some action shorts from the event:
