After a semester of snow white streets and stormy nights, we’ve finally made it to the light of the sweet ol’ summer days. The sisters of Alpha Sigma Rho Sorority, Inc. would like to wish everyone a fun, safe, and productive summer! As June quickly approaches, Alphas would like to reflect upon our eventful semester and give a big thank you to every active, affiliate, and alumna sisters for making all of these events possible. A grand thank you to everyone who has been there to support all of our events and efforts in improving the university campus and the community. With every adventure that comes with each event, we hope you guys enjoyed the growing experience just as we have.
For the first time in Epsilon Chapter’s Spring Philanthropy history, we hosted a gala for the Circle of Sisterhood! In a packed room filled with attendees from all different schools and states, everyone got to learn a lot about the philanthropy from the Circle of Sisterhood volunteer and representative herself, LuAnn Riegl. This semester, we wanted to focus our efforts on helping women all around the world facing oppression and exploitation. Circle of Sisterhood is an extraordinary organization formed by sororities who came together for a common cause, removing educational barriers for girls and women facing poverty and oppression.
On top of planning and hosting our Philanthropy, community service, sisterhood and keeping up with school work, the sisters of Alpha Sigma Rho Sorority, Inc. Epsilon Chapter and the brothers of Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity, Inc. Rho Chapter collaborated to present, “Sip & Swerve: The Reality and Dangers of Drunk Driving.” The program was a full house packed with heated discussions and confrontations of problems we’ve all come across regarding drunk driving. In April, Alphas teamed up with the marvelous ladies of Delta Kappa Delta Sorority, Inc. and hosted “Beauty & Beyond,” to tackle the subject of Asian beauty standards for women and men. From cultural & societal expectations and pressures to whitewashing and personal perspectives, come to our program and weigh in on a topic that covertly affects us all. Talk about girl power!
To top off the icing on the cake, Alpha Sigma Rho Sorority, Inc. Epsilon Chapter at Temple University was awarded TWO “Chapter of the Year”awards for the Multicultural Greek Council from Temple University’s Greek Association and Student Activities. Our external vice president also took home the title “MGC Greek Woman of the Year.” As we racked in the awards for the Multicultural Greek Council, our president, Kieu Nguyen, was also crowned “Sorority Woman of the Year” of Student Activities. Congratulations to Kieu, Ivie, and active house for all of our achievements! Another victorious end to another victorious semester!
