Alpha Week 2017 Going Strong

Alpha week 2016 itinerary.

On Wednesday, March 22, Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity is holding its annual charter day celebration. Titled “Regeneration,” the event begins with “Pie like an Alpha” in the Quad from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. The day ends with a crawfish boil and the “Train like an Alpha” event at 7 p.m. through midnight.

Richard Davis Jr., vice president of the fraternities Kappa Nu chapter, said “Train like an Alpha and the crawfish boil are chapter traditions that haven’t been held since 2015. I think it’s awesome to have witnessed these events as a student and now have the opportunity to plan and host these events as a member of this great organization.”

The events are a part of the fraternity’s Alpha Week, a weeklong chain of events taking place from March 15 to March 25. Events include a church service, a town hall forum, a performance in the Student Union, a charter day celebration, a dinner & community service as a part of the annual, and the university-wide Big Event.

“Kappa Nu has been an integral part of this campus since 1975, and with events like “Train like an Alpha” and the crawfish boil, we are able to give students unique ways to get involved with not only greek life, but the university as a whole.” said Amairi Cordova, graduating senior and member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.
