Alpha Delta Pi
The ladies of Alpha Delta Pi have had a very busy yet exciting spring semester so far. Spring Break was the perfect week for sisters to get away from their studies and go on adventures with each other. ADPi has had a blast supporting other organizations, attending philanthropy events and raising money for Relay for Life. Sisters are currently preparing for GPhi's Best Dance Crew. Alpha Delta Pi celebrated their Diamond Days last week and on Sunday, March 15th, their newest class was initiated. Congratulations to all the ladies who became Delta sisters! In the upcoming week, the sisters of ADPi will take on Greek Week 2015 and are beyond pumped to be teamed up with the gentlemen of Delta Upsilon and Alpha Phi Alpha. On April 10th, ADPi will be hosting their annual philanthropy event, Preppy Olympics, and they hope to see all members of the CNU community there competing.
The month of February brought to CNU the usual flowers and hearts of Valentine’s Day, but what really makes it special is that February is Heart Month! Throughout the month, Alpha Phi launched their #BeMineForLonger campaign encouraging everyone to be heart healthy and hosted their various events including Top Chef, Hoops for Heart and the highly anticipated King of Hearts. This male competition raises awareness and funds that will benefit the Alpha Phi foundation, an organization dedicated to raising awareness of heart disease and heart health. Specifically, it highlights the risks for women whom heart disease most affects. What is great about this event is that it combines the entertainment of attractive men doing everything from dancing to trying to get a date, as well as showing off their knowledge of heart health. The event, therefore, attracts a diverse audience which includes the brothers of contestants and the ladies of the sororities being represented, and those who just want to find out who can best make a girl’s heart throb. There were some interesting acts this year including the best wheelchair dancing many have seen and some exquisite dry-land synchronized swimming and 80’s dancing, complete with appropriate outfits of course. The best part is that this night of fun raised approximately $3,000 for the Alpha Phi Foundation! Alpha Phi thanks everyone who came to support its philanthropy and gives a big congratulations again to Jonathan Colb who represented Delta Gamma and was this year’s King of Hearts!
Alpha Phi and Psi U are hosting a Blood Drive, co-sponsored by Red Cross Club. This event will be taking place in the Freeman Center Auxiliary Gym on March 25th from 11-5 pm. To schedule an appointment visit redcrossblood.org (Sponsor Code: CNU) With your help ONE pint of blood can save up to THREE lives!
Alpha Sigma Alpha
This spring Alpha Sigma Alpha teamed up with our fellow Greeks, Pi Lambda Phi and Pi Kappa Phi to raise awareness about the hurtfulness of the r-word. One of Alpha Sigma Alpha’s philanthropies is Special Olympics so supporting those with intellectual disabilities is a cause close to Alpha Sigma Alpha’s heart. The goal was to end the stigma surrounding those with intellectual disabilities. To kick off the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign a global messenger from Special Olympics came to speak with the three chapters about the importance of ending the r-word. Alpha Sigma Alpha sisters tabled in the David Student Union to encourage students to sign the pledge to stop using the r-word. After signing the pledge students received “respect” wristbands. Through the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign the CNU community made progress towards ending this hurtful word.
On January 18th, the ladies of Eta Tau had the pleasure of working with a local Lion's Club chapter at a service for sight event held on campus. The national Lions Club is a foundation that works to support and raise awareness for many different health issues, such as hearing impairments, diabetes, guide dog training and vision impairments. The local Virginia Beach chapter spent one Sunday afternoon working with the sisters of Eta Tau to educate them about certain visual impairments and teach them how to work with the blind community. They also got to walk a mile, well more like a couple feet, in a blind person’s shoes, as they got to experience visual impairments through specialized goggles. Overall the experience was enlightening and gratifying and the sisters look forward to more upcoming service opportunities with the Lions Club!
Gamma Phi Beta
First off, the sisters of Gamma Phi Beta are extremely excited to finally be initiating their new members this upcoming weekend. It feels like just yesterday their new members were running home, into Gamma Phi Beta's arms, and officially joining their sisterhood. GPhi is so proud of their new members, and are beyond ready to call them sisters.
Secondly, Gamma Phi Beta is getting beyond excited about GPhi’s Best Dance Crew. The ladies of Gamma Phi Beta have been hearing so many wonderful stories about teams preparing for the big day. Not only are the teams getting ready, but so are their girls and boys at Girls Inc. It is amazing to see them preform in front of such a large crown and absolutely steal the show. GPhi wishes each team the best of luck and bring on the dance moves!
Lastly, #CNUGreekWeek2015 is finally upon us! The sisters of Gamma Phi Beta are already having an amazing time working with Kappa Delta Rho and Sigma Tau Gamma. There is so much energy within Team Blue and the sisters of Gamma Phi Beta cannot wait for this upcoming week!
Thanks to our wonderful Internal Social Chair, Amber Reese, the sisters of Phi Mu had a blast dancing the night away at our most recent date function. They learned line dances and how to two step to some country jams at The Banque. They stuffed their faces at the awesome buffet and laughed the night away. Thanks to The Banque the sisters of Phi Mu are especially looking forward to formal and trying out their new dance moves!
Zeta Tau Alpha
The sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha had nothing to report at this time.
