April 18, 2016

Hundreds of students, family and friends clapped and squealed as the new members of eight fraternities and sororities revealed themselves on March 29 and 30 in McDougald-McLendon Arena.

In order to attend to the event, guests were asked to pay a $1 or donate canned goods.

According to the Fraternity/ Sorority Life Coordinator Darrien Jerman, all proceeds went to NCCU’s campus food pantry and other community agencies that combat hunger needs.

Jerman said 1700 canned goods were donated.

On March 29, three members of Tau Beta Sigma National Honorary Band Sorority  marched down the gym floor.

Five members of Kappa Kappa Psi National Honorary Band Fraternity glided down the gym as they showcased their presentation.

Shortly after, four ladies of Sigma Gamma Rho Inc. strolled and chanted as they assembled in a line on stage.

Last but not least, nine members of Alpha Phi Alpha Inc. demonstrated their bonds of brotherhood as they did their step routine.

On March 30, Alpha Nu Omega Fraternity/ Sorority kicked of the probate as they presented nine members. This is the first year for this fraternity/sorority on campus.

Twelve members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. jumped and hopped as they strolled down the gym.

Afterwards, Zeta Phi Beta initiated 11 members as their prophyte prepared them for their neophyte presentation.

Seven members of Phi beta sigma Fraternity Inc. closed out the probate as they recited their chants and showed the audience their dance routines.

According to the Fraternity/Sorority Life Coordinator Darrien Jerman, two percent of the student body participated in spring intake.
