Alpha Xi Delta Volunteers at New Jersey Shore Walk

Alpha Xi Delta Volunteer J ShoreThis past Saturday, Sept. 16, the Iota Nu chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Monmouth University took part in the New Jersey Shore Walk hosted by Autism Speaks at the Great Lawn in Long Branch, New Jersey.

The sisters arrived at the walk at 6:30 a.m. to help set up tables, tents, and anything else needed in order for the event to run smoothly once walkers arrived. When those walking began to show up, they helped with registration, handing out refreshments, face painting, and cheering on teams as they walked.

Registration began at 10 a.m. and the walk started at 11:30 a.m. People from all over were given the opportunity to volunteer or participate in the walk in order to raise awareness and fundraise to improve and add ease to the lives of those living with autism.

Sisters Kristin Wall, junior, and Kristen Kennett, senior, worked together to organize the chapter’s involvement in this year’s walk.

“Throughout the year Alpha Xi Delta raises money and awareness for our philanthropy, Autism Speaks. What I love about the walk is that we are able to be hands on and meet those who are affected by autism, or who are fighting for the same cause in our community. We were thrilled to see such a great turn out and to be part of such a wonderful day,” said Wall.

Almost $57,000 was raised at the walk, with over $2,000 being fundraised by the Iota Nu chapter. The girls promoted the walk through their social media pages and each made their own goals to reach in order to raise money for Autism Speaks.

Student Activities Board Brings White Panda to Monmouth

SAB White Panda To MUThe Student Activities Board held its event, Monmouth Mania, in the Ocean First Bank Center on Saturday, Sept. 16.

The event took place at 7:30 p.m. and ended at approximately 10:00 p.m. and was a successful start to the semester for the Student Activities Board.

Over 300 tickets were sold by the start of the concert while more students continued to purchase tickets at the door.

Students were charged $15 to attend the concert and were allowed to purchase one guest ticket for $25.

Starting Thursday, Sept. 14 ticket prices were reduced to $5 for students and $10 for guests in order to promote sales. Those who purchased tickets prior to the reduced prices were able to get a refund if desired.

The concert was headlined by White Panda who performed at popular music festival Firefly this past summer. Monmouth student David Krumbine, sophomore and brother of Delta Tau Delta and Alpha Kappa Psi, was featured as the opening act under the stage name DJ KRUM.

Tianna Fougeray, Novelties Chair and senior marketing and management major at Monmouth, said, “White Panda always wears their panda masks because they don’t want anyone knowing what they actually look like. I think the whole concept behind them having an anonymous identity while also creating a signature look for themselves is really clever. It definitely added to the atmosphere of the event.”

Why You Should Join Greek Life

Why Greek LifeLooking for an easy way to meet new people and get involved on campus? Greek Life may be the perfect option for you. Monmouth University’s Greek organizations on campus have created unity amongst students, reward through philanthropy, and ultimately, a sense of belonging for all of those involved. Just as with other clubs and sports, stereotypes are made about Greek organizations that may have one thinking Greek Life is not for them. Some of these stereotypes include that sororities and fraternities only value partying and that students in these organizations pay for their friends.

While Greek students acknowledge that these misleading myths are nothing more than that—myths, these rumors often deter students from getting involved each year.

Just like those students, sophomore Cassandra Cinque, sister of Alpha Xi Delta, initially experienced a similar hesitation towards Greek Life. “When I first arrived as a freshman, I was not sure if I even wanted to go out for recruitment,” she shared. “I was very iffy about the whole idea of being in a sorority after hearing rumors and did not know exactly what membership would entail. However, after I attended a couple of events, my suspicions were put to ease. I got the opportunity to meet and chat with some of the girls and I remember thinking, ‘Wow these girls are really cool and I could actually see myself fitting in with them.’ When recruitment came around, I decided, ‘Why Not?’ and went for it. Thank God I did, because I would have never found my home at Alpha Xi Delta and I would have missed out on the friendships with all of my wonderful sisters.”

While Cinque’s interest for Greek Life sparked her freshman year, students are encouraged to get involved at any time during their college experience. Senior Randy Cabrera, brother of Sigma Tau Gamma, said, “When I transferred my junior year, I really didn’t know anyone and I only had two years of college left. That motivated me to join a fraternity. I was surprised by how fast I was able to make friendships and that my brothers shared the same values as I did.”

Take Part in the Alternative Break Program This Year

Alternative Break ProgramIs service for others one of your passions? Are you looking to gain a better worldview or a fresh perspective? Are you ready to take a step outside of your comfort zone and travel to a new country for a short period of time? If so, the Alternative Break Program might be right for you.

Monmouth University’s Alternative Break Program was created by International Student Advisor, Corey Inzana, to give students the opportunity to travel to do service in impoverished countries including Haiti, Guatemala, and Nicaragua on their winter, spring, or summer breaks.

The Alternative Break Program allows Monmouth University students to work in a group to help build and refurbish schools and churches, some of the most vital parts of these countries. Students are immersed in the culture of the country for 10 to 12 days, depending on the trip they take part in.

While there, students meet families and children and give as much help and service as possible in the period of time they are there. Though the trips may seem as though they are a short length of time, students can make a lasting impact on these countries and the people they meet, and also gain a lasting impact themselves of new perspectives from their experiences.

Erin Smith, Social Media Coordinator at Monmouth University, took part in the Alternative Break Program twice. Smith went to Haiti as a student in 2014 and Nicaragua as an advisor in 2016.

Recalling the Nicaragua 2016 trip she said, “I saw students board the plane attached to their phones and way of life. Once we were there it was totally different. The 21 students became a cohesive unit ready to dig in.”
