Yell Like Hell 2015 concluded with glitter flying and plenty of Cyclone spirit this weekend.

Three final pairings painted their bodies in cardinal and gold and performed during the Pep Rally in front of the Alumni Center starting at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

Fourteen pairings originally performed their skits on Oct. 25 in front of seven judges who chose eight pairings to be painted for second cuts on Wednesday.

The first pairing to take the stage during the final performance was Cyclone Bootcamp, which was made up of Sigma Pi, Kappa Alpha Theta and Triangle.

The winning pairing of Yell Like Hell 2015, Delta Tau Delta, Alpha Delta Pi and Acacia, took the stage next with their original skit, Graduation CYremony.

“We just knew we wanted to win, and we really worked on the judges’ critiques from the last two performances,” said Abby Bergquist, a sophomore in management information systems and member of Alpha Delta Pi.

The last group to perform was made up of Chi Omega, Alpha Gamma Rho and Pi Kappa Phi with a skit titled CYrassic Park. During the final performances, pairings no longer had a time limit to consider.

With the conclusion of Yell Like Hell, came the start of Lawn Displays.

Lawn Displays, which has been around since Iowa State’s first homecoming in 1912, is a competition between the Greek houses to create the best display on their houses’ yards.

This year, the display shows began 8 p.m. on Friday night and end at 10 p.m where every house will have a chance to show off their creation to students and the public.

Each pairing built a lawn display based on creativity to present to the audience after the Pep Rally. Some of the themes of the night included Halloweentown, Disney and Amesbridge.

The winning group was Theta Delta Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon and Alpha Phi with their “Peter Pan” themed display.

Chandler Bane, a junior in agricultural systems technology and a member of Alpha Gamma Rho, said it took them a little over a month to build everything,

“It’s a time commitment and it takes a lot of will-power,” Bane said. This was his third year helping with the building process.

At 11:15 p.m. on Friday, the winners of the various Greek Homecoming events were announced on Central Campus right before Mass Campaniling and fireworks.

The winning pairing of Homecoming 2015 was Chi Omega, Alpha Gamma Rho and Pi Kappa Phi. As this year’s Homecoming festivities come to a close, the Greek community prepares for Varieties starting Nov. 8 and Greek Week in the spring.
