Chatting with Chauncey

What’s up Teal Nation, it’s your Command Bird in Chief here, Chauncey.  

 Usually, I’m a bird of few words, seeing as I am unable to speak. But my friends at The Chanticleer have reached out to me and asked me to tell you about what it means to be a Chanticleer. And being that I am in fact the Chanticleer, I couldn’t refuse.  

 First and foremost, let’s talk Teal Tuesday. Now most of y’all are doing a wonderful job, I love seeing all the teal you wear not only on Tuesday but the rest of the days of the week as well. But some of you are slacking big time, and I just hate to see it. There are quite a number of places on campus, and a few off of it as well, where you can snag your teal swag just by participating 

 Alright, Alright. I’ll get off my teal soapbox now and congratulate and thank you, Teal Nation.  

 Your attendance at campus events this year have be amazing. Y’all make this campus light up with the energy you bring, and it’s so much fun to interact with all of you and take your BeReals. Let’s keep it up as we move into the spring seasons with teams competing like baseball, softball, lacrosse, tennis and beach volleyball! And don’t let it stop there: We have theatre performances and tons of other events just for you, Chants. 

 Lastly, what does it mean to be a Chanticleer? A Chanticleer is a person who not only loves this University but the community inside and around it. A Chanticleer helps a friend in need. A Chanticleer is each and every one of you, and I couldn’t be more proud to call you all Chanticleers.
