Milligan Traditions: Creeking!

Milligan has many many traditions that we all LOVE to take part in.  One in particular is Creeking. This oh so wonderful event happens to each man and woman who dares to get engaged while at Milligan.  Friends of their gender surprise them one evening, tie them up, throw them in the back of a truck, ride around campus making as much noise as possible, and then throw them in the creek in front of Milligan!

There are a couple variations to this.  The guys typically go naked, and the girls will untie the lady before being thrown in!  Over all we have a blast doing this!

Last Friday I got to participate in my first ever creeking! Lauren got engaged last summer and we have been waiting for just the right time to get her!! We totally caught her off guard.  She screamed before we tied her up "Ah I hate you!" But she deep down loved it!  She even thanked us all for doing it at the end of the night!

Just so you know, almost all creeking pictures end up blurry.  There is always just so much going on!

She was so surprised! Thanks goodness she wasn't in any nice clothes!

Outside we go...

She was one happy camper about being creeked!

Everyone so excited to be creeking her!
