Mr. Gustavus

Posted on April 17th, 2008 by

On April 4th, 2008, the Theta Xi Gamma Sorority hosted a festive and fun event…The Mr. Gustavus Pageant. The event featured Junior and Senior Gusties strutting their stuff in a competition that would decide which contestant would receive the coveted title of Mr. Gustavus.

Contestants competed in the following areas: Gustie Pride, a Question/Answer Portion, a Talent Contest and Evening Wear. The event occurred in the Market Place, and a good portion of the student community attended the event.

I was very impressed with the contestants, and I especially appreciated the talent contest. A few contestants played guitar and sang, others told jokes, skateboarded, and even danced. My favorite talent was performed by the eventual winner of Mr. Gustavus, Dave. Dave did a choreographed dance to the Daft Punk song, Harder, Better, Faster Stronger. Check out a similar dance to Dave’s contest winning performance on youtube here.

All of the Mr. Gustavus Pageant proceeds went to the Lupus Foundation, and organization that assists those affected by the Lupus disease.

The title of Mr. Gustavus is in great hands for 2008, but I hope to see another competition next year.
