Men of Alpha Phi Alpha such as James Felton and Vaun Davis are key to why I want to pursue my aspirations of someday becoming a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity incorporated. Both James and Vaun’s unselfishness has allowed me to grow as a leader and also into a man. These role models have opened numerous doors for me that have resulted into various benefits and opportunities. I hope my encounters with great Alpha Men such as James Felton and Vaun Davis will allow me the opportunity of joining the highly respected brotherhood. Another abundant encounter that I have experienced with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, is the true meaning and display of brotherhood. For years I have watched the interactions and connections of men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated I have noticed that each member that I have encountered expresses and implements the true meaning of brotherhood. I profoundly believe in the bond of brotherhood and fraternity. In my belief, if granted the chance to uphold the unbreakable bond such as the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, the bond would enhance my credentials while assisting and challenging others. The brotherhood would push me to
“Hurry up, guys,” I yelled to my sister and mother. “Y’all are going to make me late!” It was October 4th, the night of the homecoming football game. The game started in fifteen minutes and we hadn’t even left the
I would first like to thank the fraternity of Delta Kappa Epsilon for this lovely nomination, I stand here today looking at the most handsome, funny, genuine group guys that I have very known from my 19 years of living on this world. Never in my life did in my younger years I’d think I would be joining and sorority and on top of that running to be a sweetheart to one of the jolliest and good fraternities on this ASU campus. When I told my mom during the summer I was considering running for sweetheart her response was “I’m happy for you, but sad at the same time, because that means you slept with most of all of those boys.” You can tell I was first in Greek life within my family knowing she really had no idea what a sweetheart actually was.
J. B. Blakeman is the brother that I look up to and intend to shadow my experience as an Eagle and Greek Member. During my time at Morehead, I want to make sure that everything I do is to the best of my ability and benefits not only me, but also those in the community. I want to make sure that everything I do reflects my brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon and all of the fraternities in every perspective. One way that I plan on committing to this is to partner up with all of the sororities and fraternities to give back and to serve Morehead’s community by serving charities and other community events. Each semester I would like to have at least one partnership with every Greek organization that gives back by serving the people City of Morehead. I strive for the city of Morehead, Rowan County and all of Kentucky to remember Morehead State University as one of the leading schools around for Greek life community events. My long term goal is to create a new imprint that will quash the stereotypes of fraternities. The legacy that I want to leave is for fraternities to feel obligated to serve the community and be the best Eagle that a brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon can
Shannon Gray 11-28-11 Essay 4 Pomped Up for Homecoming The long nights of folding colored paper into meticulous shapes over and over again until your fingers are raw and bleeding. The even longer nights of unfolding the paper, fluffing it up and sticking it into chicken wire. This is called pomping, or also known as placing squares of colored tissue paper to boards. It is also a way to decorate plywood boards that are just a small part of a larger float. Chicken wire, lots of colored plastic sheets and power saws litter the basements and backyards of sorority and fraternity houses all over campus throughout the months leading up to Homecoming week. Pomping is a thorough task which every new sorority member is required to participate in
To the founders of Phi Beta Kappa, My name is Jacob Dube and I currently serve as the President of the Florida Chapter of Delta Chi here at the University of Florida. In 1776, you all made a decision that would forever change the course of college history at the College of William and Mary and many other universities nationwide as you created the first American collegiate fraternity. I cannot express my gratitude for you as you all paved the way for the Greek system in a college and university setting. The Greek experience is one of a kind to all of its members, and it has helped produce some of the most successful people in our country. I would like to share to you some great news about today’s Greek systems here at the University of Florida and how you helped shape the success of so many Greek students.
When becoming an Alum of the best university, Oklahoma State University, I want to continue to support the university that helped to further my future. Spreading the word of the opportunities that Oklahoma State offers has a large impact on the number of students that attend this university. I plan to let many potential students know what this college has done and continues to do for me. I would love to see that Alpha Zeta has a large role in campus activities, and continues to grow membership each year. With a large student involvement, and respect among campus this organization has only a bright
Brea’na Wright-Hall, “We attend the Greek events and we see no one that looks like us. Not only that, the Greek organizations on campus who makes up a large percentage of the social life do not support any other events besides their own or FPC. That’s a problem, we can’t keep supporting your events but the support is not reciprocated.”
College Sororities: Rebuttal of Evan Wright’s Article, Sister Act Walking around a university’s campus any day of the week, one sees an array of Greek letters worn proudly by young men and women in the Greek system. Fraternities and sororities play a big part in a university. The Greek system can also be an easy target to direct criticism. There are those who oppose the Greek system and those who embrace it. Evan Wright opposes the Greek system in his article “Sister Act” that was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine. He uses examples from students at Ohio State University in Columbus to show his disapproval of the way sororities are now days. He portrays sorority girls as catty conformists who are obsessed with partying with fraternity

Pursuing the dream of obtaining membership into the First Intercollegiate Greek Fraternity for African Americans, Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc. is one of very few ultimate goals in my life. An organization that was founded to stimulate the ambitions of its members and prepare them for great usefulness within the community
Greek & Greek Americans The first of two notable periods of Greek immigration to the United States began in the 1800s and continued until the 1920s. According to chnm.gmu.edu (n.d.), the economic crisis in Greece caused many Greek families to send their sons to the United States to make money to send back home to Greece. The second wave of Greek immigration occurred after World War II with the passage of Immigration and National Origins Act of 1965. This opened the door for many Greeks who had family already living in the United States, to come join them. The second generation of Greek Americans had been established by this time and they had established Greek communities as well as various businesses that were thriving.
Pursuing the dream of obtaining membership into the First Intercollegiate Greek Fraternity for African Americans, Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc. is one of very few ultimate goals in my life. An organization that was founded to stimulate the ambitions of its members and prepare them for great usefulness within the community has since become one of the most well respected organizations in America. Over one hundred years later, the pivotal movement in 1906 has spread to over the entire country in different collegiate chapters and cities across America and the impact has been tremendous. To some individuals, I was considered very lucky to be reared in the upbringing I experienced. But in my eyes it was a double edged sword.
My involvement in the Greek community has allowed me to grow my leadership skills and opportunities. I am heavily involved within my fraternity and I hold leadership positions as well as giving back to community. I currently hold the position of house manager within in my fraternity which I am responsible for the physical appearance and proper maintenance of the building which includes maintaining a filing system for receipts, bills, and inventory of Fraternity property. Also, within the fraternity I am given the opportunity to give back to the community. The ways in which I give back to my community are by volunteering with the ALS foundation, Habitat for Humanity, and MADD. I work closely with our philanthropy chair to help
