Helicopter parking pass?

Alissa Anderson on Wednesday, 23 September 2009. Posted in Life After RIT, Student Life

Last Spring the national gaurd came to campus to recruit... and gave out free helicopter rides around pull ups were optional because as a sorority girl and engineer I am not built to do such things.... The general did not take that excuse so needless to say I did not ride the helicoper. BUT Phi Delta Theta invited the gaurd back to campus last week and the boys gave me a VIP pass to fly around campus :) check out what I found:

    That looks like fun, I saw it going by and doing some crazy maneuvers. Could anyone get a ride or just Phi Delta Theta people?

    That looks like so much fun! I was walking to Commons and the helicopter came in behind me and pretty much looked like it was going to land on my head, kind of scary. I like the picture of the dorms from above :)

    The helicopter was open to everyone - and it was SO sick! Look for it again in the spring.

    It was the Marine Corp not the national guard.

    I believe that it was the Marines who were recruiting, not the Guard. BIG difference

    It was definitely the marines.

    JP, no not only Phi Delts can go on the helicopter. The helicopter was used as a recruitment tool by both the marines and phi delts. If you're interested come by in spring. (It should be coming around again.

    To be kept up to date become a fan of Phi Delta Theta @
