“I believe that faithfullness to these ideals will help me to live joyously and valiantly.” | Alyssa Tritschler's Senior Goodbye

“But especially do we thank thee for friends."


Senior Goodbye 1Monmouth University. You have been my home for the past four years, the best four years of my life. You have given me friendship, serenity, sisterhood, love, education, laughter, and so much happiness. From the moment I stepped on to this campus I knew I never wanted to leave. Now that time has come and it’s so hard to say goodbye. Over the years I have formed memories on every corner of this beautiful campus and I can’t help but stop and think about them as I walk towards the fountains, through the tunnel towards the residential side, or glance at Wilson Hall. Attending this school was my dream and to be able to say that I’ve reached it is so bittersweet. From eating Carlos omelets everyday freshmen and sophomore year, to shoving three people into a double room in Redwood 218, to throwing endless pregame parties in The Lawrence House, and getting stung every Thursday night, this is in fact, a goodbye.

Alpha Omicron Pi Raises Money for Arthritis Research

From the court to the stage, Justin Robinson remains a campus celebrity after winning Alpha Omicron Pi’s “So You Think You Can Dance” competition.

So You Think You Can Dance raised over $1,300 for the Arthritis Research Foundation. Since the organization’s partnership with the Arthritis Foundation in 1967, Alpha Omicron Pi has raised over $3 million nationally.

“The whole concept of this event was very cool. The interactive wheel and improvisation aspect was different than other events we’ve seen and it kept it entertaining,” said Ali Hart, junior education student.

There was a massive colorful wheel on the screen that consisted of several different dance moves from over the years. Each contestant came onto the stage oblivious to what dance they would have to perform and spin the wheel. Once the wheel stopped spinning, a brief video of the selected dance would play and the contestant would then have to dance that move.

Monmouth University Fights Back at Relay for Life

MU Relay for Life 2016Students, faculty, friends, fighters, survivors, and loved ones filled the Multi-Purpose Activity Center (MAC) on Fri. April 1 for Monmouth University’s Relay for Life. Monmouth University has been hosting an American Cancer Society sponsored campus-wide Relay for Life event, along with the help of the Colleges against Cancer club on campus, to help fight back and find a cure for cancer.

The American Cancer Society website claims that the Relay for Life movement is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. The relay is an overnight event where participants “camp out”, listen to music, visit fundraising tables, and take turns walking around the MAC track to raise funds to fight cancer. This year’s theme was One World, One Hope, in honor of the national Relay for Life theme of Paint Your World Purple. The theme is to spread awareness of the available support and programs around the world from the ACS. The American Cancer Society’s slogan is “Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back.”

Karaoke For A Cause Raises $2,100 For Autism Speaks

With Light It Up Blue week just around the corner, the sisters of Alpha Xi Delta at Monmouth University began their month of fundraising at their annual Karaoke for a Cause event on Wednesday Mar. 30, 2016.

Keith Lee, a junior political science major and brother of Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity, blew the crowd away with his performance of Neyo’s “So Sick” and secured his first place spot in the competition.

“All of the acts were really great and entertaining but Keith Lee really killed up there on stage and stole the hearts of everyone in the audience,” said senior education student Kathleen Fabio.

The event consisted of 10 acts from students in the Monmouth community. DJ Forest Taylor from Delta Tau Delta provided his musical expertise for the night while Maddie Conroy, Bryce Petracorro, and Paul Matt hosted. Matthew Cox from Phi Kappa Psi, Chris Carter from Delta Tau Delta, and Bri Musco were the judges for the night.

“The event went very well. The acts were amazing and I am so grateful for them to perform. Honestly I love this philanthropy and everything we do. I volunteered with children with autism so being philanthropy chair and organizing an event which raised around $2,100 is awesome and a privilege to be a part of,” said Kristen Kennett a sophomore heath studies student and the philanthropy chair for Alpha Xi Delta.

Monmouth Surf Club Spends Spring Break Overseas

MU Surf Club Spring BreakSpring break, time to leave.  Anywhere away from home.  It’s odd; no other time of year seems better fit for travel than March. Why deal with the half-spring/half-winter mode? Who needs the soggy ground and fluctuating temperatures that New Jersey provides during this month? There are nooks to be explored and crannies to be exploited.I suppose going overseas to party at a resort youwill never remember does count, although the travel being referenced here is more meaningful—a right of passage for many is the surf trip.

Since the dawn of time, surfers have searched for a perfect wave. Something about consolidating your life and throwing it into a board bag has a titillating allure. Who needs expensive hotels, five-star food or even deodorant for that matter? The boys of Monmouth Surf sure don’t. Their destination for this past spring break was none other than the surfing paradise of Puerto Rico.

Talk of travel to the Carribean Island started a few weeks into Monmouth’s spring semester, thoughts of exotic women and golden Medalla replaced those of upcoming midterms.But more importantly, the guys sought after scoring a perfect Puerto Rican wave.

Phi Kappa Psi Wins Lip-Sync for Third Year in a Row

Phi Kappa Psi Lip SyncPhi Kappa Psi fraternity remains the reigning champions of Delta Phi Epsilon’s annual Lip-Sync Battle as they walked away with another victory on Wednesday, March 9.

“Lip-Sync is always such a fun event for the entire Greek community so we are so excited to have been able to participate and win again,” said Malik Johnson, a senior communication student and member of Phi Kappa Psi. Phi Psi’s gold winning dance featured a mash up of famous SpongeBob songs that had the entire audience singing along.

“Phi Psi’s dance was the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. I loved that they all dressed up like the characters in the show and had the entire crowd laughing, singing, and clapping along the entire time,” said Jenna Hersh, a senior economic and finance student.

Sigma Pi fraternity earned second place with a fun and upbeat dance to the hit song “Hey Ya” by Outkast. Theta Xi fraternity added a classical yet comedic approach to the event with a performance to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody which landed them in third place.

Newfound Fraternity Progresses Since Chartering

Truth, Courage, Faith, Power. These are the four fundamental principles ‘Delts’ live by in order to maintain important relationships within the organization and the outside world. 

Ever since the organization’s colonization on Mar. 7, 2014, the gentlemen of Delta Tau Delta have been working tirelessly to make a positive impact on Greek Life at Monmouth University. Through their successful philanthropic events, such as Delta Queen and volunteering at the Asbury Park and West Long Branch areas at Jersey Shore Dream Center, the Delts are not only trying to better themselves, but also the University and the surrounding communities.

“Between the two Delta Queen events, I believe over $15,000 has been raised in about a years [time] span,” said Anthony Serrantonio, a Delt alumni who organized the first Delta Queen philanthropic event.

Delta Queen is a competition held in Pollak Theatre amongst the sororities on campus where the sorority women and Delt fraternity brothers alike accumulate points in an attempt to raise money with the ultimate goal of winning the “crown.” This event raises money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Delta Tau Delta’s national philanthropy. The foundation’s mission is to rid the world of Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in children.
