Hey, Hey UVA!

In the 1920s, a black and white mongrel, dubbed Beta after the Beta Theta Pi frat at The University of Virginia, could be seen wandering the campus at any hour. He attended college parties and socials, but didn't skimp on academic pursuits. He attended a course on Plato regularly enough that his name was called in the roll. But Beta was known as a "magical dog." His dog magic kicked in after he disappeared during an away football game in Athens, Georgia. His team left without him. The campus mourned their loss, but two weeks later, Beta showed up at the Beta frat house, worn and hungry. He had somehow traveled the 500 miles between Athens and Charlottesville, and homed in on where he trusted a bowl of food would be waiting.
