Last Week Zeta Tau Alpha had their Annual Think Pink Week and congratulations to Philip Castellanos from Sigma Chi Fraternity for becoming their Bingo Baller, and for helping raise the most money for Breast Cancer Awareness.
“Congratulations to brother Phillip Castellanos!! Zeta Tau Alpha Kappa Theta Chapter‘s new Bingo Baller, We are proud of you!!!” Sigma Chi Fraternity posted on their Facebook page congratulating their brother.
The Interested Ladies of Lambda Theta Alpha will be hosting a Tiki- Hut Fundraiser on Tuesday.
The Gentlemen of Sigma Nu Fraternity will be hosting their Annual Bid-A-Nu on Wednesday May, 16 from 7–9 p.m. in the SMSU Theatre.
This week I want to take a look the Brothers and Sisters of Delta Sigma Chi Coed Fraternity Inc.
Delta Sigma Chi’s Beta Chapter was founded at CSUSB’s campus on April 16, 1993.
Their mascot is the Black Panther. Their colors are red, black and gold, and their motto is “One Fraternity. One Family.”
Their Chapter philanthropy is St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital.
“Philanthropy Week has always been something that I look forward to. Every year we raise more money to donate to St.Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and the amount of support is always amazing. Not only are you making a difference by supporting St. Jude’s, but you also see the Greek unity that comes from collaborating during the week” said Maria Riestra, Philanthropy Director for Delta Sigma Chi.
They also have a National philanthropy, which is The Boys and Girls Club of America.
Some of the events they’ve participated in on campus are:
~Annual Delta Sigma Chi Against Drunk Driving
~Lambda Theta Nu sorority’s Smooth Silver King
~Sigma Phi Epsilon’s Queen of Hearts
~Zeta Tau Alpha’s Think Pink Hottie
~Delta Sigma Phi’s Queen of the Nile
~Sigma Chi’s Derby Days
~And several other Organization’s philanthropies
~E.T.A., Sigma Nu, and Delta Sigma Chi Health Awareness Week
~St.Jude’s Philanthropy Week
~Build-A-Park @ Casa Ramona Elementary School
~Sister Shuneza Allen says, “I donated my time with a Dress Drive for Child Protective Services and an Alumni Workshop.”
~They also participate in Greek Week
Some events they have coming up on campus are:
~Risk Management Awareness with Alpha Delta Pi, Lambda Theta Alpha and Lambda Theta Phi on Monday, May 14, 2012 at 6 p.m.
~ Don’t Stop Caring Book Drive for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital
~St. Jude’s Volleyball Tournament
Sister Kayla Gutierrez states that her favorite event was “Lip Synch during Greek week because it gave my fraternity a chance to work with Alpha Phi, a sorority, and meet all the amazing sisters of that sorority. Now, it’s awesome that when we see the sister of Alpha Phi, we hug, say hi and ask how their day is going.”
Being a part of a Greek organization is such an important decision.
“Becoming Greek has probably been one of the hardest decisions I made throughout my college experience. At first I was scared to go Greek, I was scared of meeting new people and putting myself out there into a new environment. I wanted to gain the experience of being in organization that would help me obtain the business aspect and social aspect, and Delta Sigma Chi has helped me do that “ said Alberto Jasso the USFC delegate for his chapter.
“During my two years in this great organization, one of my best memories was when I was given the chance to be my chapter Philanthropy Director. I was in charge of our St. Jude’s Week, my brothers and sisters and I hosted several events during the week to raise awareness and donations to the children of St. Jude’s,” said Jose Cruz, Brother of Delta Sigma Chi.
