Memoirs of an (Almost) Monmouth Transfer Student | Heather Muh's Senior Goodbye

axid

Four years ago if you had asked me what I thought my college experience was going to be like I would have explained something completely different than the experience I actually had. I grew up in the West Long Branch area. I spent my entire life here, so when it came to college, I wanted to get as far away from here as possible. I wanted to go to a big college with rowdy sports games and hundreds of people I didn’t know. Instead, I ended up at Monmouth.

I was not happy with this decision at first. While my friends were away at colleges experiencing new people and places, I was stuck in the same town I grew up in. While my friends were going to huge parties and football games with thousands of spectators, I had virtually no social life and avoided my school’s football games because no one else seemed to be interested in them. By the end of the fall semester of my freshman year I was looking for other schools I could transfer to.

Fast forward four years and you’ll notice that I am still here. I did not transfer. Instead, I made a decision to give Monmouth one more shot and try to get involved in order to meet new people. I became a part of Greek life. I joined The Outlook staff. I took my college experience into my own hands and turned it into what I wanted.

Sororities and Fraternities Battle it Out: Greek Week 2015

axidIt’s officially Greek Week, a.k.a. the best time of year for fraternities and sororities. The organizations have the opportunity to show each other what they’ve really got in competitions such as the talent show, field games, trivia test, and penny wars. Even better, Greek Week also means it is formal season. Basically, the best of both worlds combined into one. 

The 2015 Greek Week is being held from Monday, April 20 to Friday, April 24. Fraternities and sororities were paired up by size to be teammates throughout the week. This year, the Greek Senate decided to encourage Greek unity even further by allowing each fraternity and sorority pair to design and wear the same t-shirts to be entered into the t-shirt competition, in which Phi Sigma Sigma (PhiSig) and Delta Tau Delta (DTD) placed first. Each organization also had the opportunity to pick a movie that aligns with the theme of the week, Disney.

National Broadcasting Society Wins Big Nationally

erikThe University’s chapter of the National Broadcasting Society (NBS) traveled to the NBS National Convention and Competition in Atlanta, GA late last month and came back winners.

NBS is a club on campus that is just one chapter of a much bigger organization, the National Broadcasting Society: Alpha Epsilon Rho (NBS-AERho.) It gives students the opportunity to develop the skills they will need for a career in electronic media industries such as film, television, and radio. According to organization’s official website, “NBS-AERho connects students with practicing professionals; emphasizes industry ethics, diversity, and inclusiveness; and promotes opportunities for excellence in leadership, community service, and production.” 

“The National Broadcasting Society allows Monmouth students the opportunity to take the work they have created in class and in other clubs and compete on a national level,” said Erik Massimino, a senior and the president of NBS on campus.

Shadow PR Firm/PRSSA Chapter Raise Close to $8,000

prssaThe University’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and Shadow PR Firm held a concert fundraiser, “Melodies by the Sea,” on campus from 6 to 9 pm on Thursday, April 9 to raise money for local non-profit, Mary’s Place by the Sea. 

Each spring, PRSSA and Shadow PR Firm hold a large event for students and faculty to benefit a charity. The group has been raising money since Oct. 2014 and raised nearly $8,000 to be donated.

“I’m really proud of what PRSSA has accomplished. We’ve been planning for the event all year and the most rewarding part, aside from the impressive funds we raised, is the attendance. There was a great energy and amount of students at the event and it really made us realize what PRSSA is capable of. We’re so grateful to have had so many students, groups, and organizations get involved with us,” said Erica Bonavitacola, a senior communication student and executive board member of PRSSA. 

PRSSA and Shadow PR Firm set up the event with the help of their advisor, Mary Harris, the University faculty, and through kind donations of local businesses and sponsors. Many companies such as George Wall Lincoln and McOmber & McOmber set high standards for sponsor donations, but University clubs and organizations like Alpha Sigma Tau really showed their support with large sponsor donations as well. One sponsor in particular, the Beth J. Rappoport Memorial Fund, provided Mary’s Place by the Sea with a generous donation of $1,000 in support of PRSSA and Mary’s Place by the Sea.

Alpha Xi Delta “Lights it up Blue” for Autism

todayEvery year Alpha Xi Delta (AXiD) holds their annual “Light it Up Blue Week” around campus in honor of National Autism Awareness month and their national philanthropy, Autism Speaks. 

The first week of April the sisters host many different events on campus to help raise money for Autism Speaks.  According to the Autism Speaks website, “An estimated 1 out of 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls are diagnosed with autism in the United States.”  

Autism Speaks raises money to support the research of Autism in hopes of supprting the individuals and families affected by the disorder.  AXiD hosts a variety of different events on campus throughout the first week of April to help give back to the organization.

This year, the sorority hosted three different events throughout the week. The first was a “Kissing Booth.”  The sisters handed out blue ribbons and Hershey kisses with different facts about Autism on the bottom in exchange for donations.  The sisters were able to raise money for a great cause and also spread awareness and statistics on the disorder.   

For the second day of “Light it Up Blue Week” AXiD hosted an event called “Pie a Xi.”  Everyone on campus was able to come out and donate to the cause and got a chance to pie a sister in the face.  Ali Hart, a sophomore and the sorority’s philanthropy chair, was thrilled with the turnout of day two.

“The second day was the most successful,” Hart said. “Everyone came out to pie one of our sisters for $2 and it was a lot of fun!”
