Zeta Tau Alpha recently hosted their annual Big Man on Campus event to benefit their philanthropy, breast cancer education and awareness.
This year’s Big Man on Campus winner was contestant No. 12 Quay Boddie. Jonny Sitton, contestant No. 11, won first runner-up and Jonathan Rodriguez, contestant No. 6, won second runner-up.
Big Man on Campus gives men the chance to show they have what it takes to compete like the women on campus.
The pageant is a nationwide event for ZTA Chapters.
“It is a great opportunity to raise money for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, where all proceeds will benefit breast cancer education and awareness,” said junior history and political science major and president April Croft.
The theme of BMOC was Boy Bands from the 90’s and there were a total of 12 contestants. The men performed an opening dance number then moved on to the three categories: sportswear, Think pink! and formal wear. The contest also included an optional talent show.
“There were also two additional categories for the men: ‘best legs’ and ‘Mr. Congeniality,’” said Cheryl Culp, senior general studies major and Big Man coordinator.
Boddie enjoyed the event and believes he could not have won without help.
“It feels great [to be Big Man]– all glory goes to God,” said Boddie. “I’m nothing without him shedding his grace and mercy on my life.”
Seth Clark, contestant No. 3, won “best legs” and Andrew Edenfield, contestant No. 4, won “Mr. Congeniality. Contestant No. 10 Thad Mathis won the talent show portion.
Zeta Tau Alpha raised about $500 from BMOC.
