Phi Sigma Sigma will be holding the first greek event of the semester. The sorority holds an event every year, known as Monmouth Idol, where contestants compete in a singing contest.
However, feeling the need to change things up, the organization’s event this year is called “PhiSignificant Other” and is a male beauty pageant featuring men from three of the six fraternities on campus, as well as athletes from the Football and Basketball team as well.
The event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 5th at 9:45 pm in Pollak theatre. Member of Phi Sigma Sigma and junior graphic design major, Kelly Santoriello said, “This event should be really fun and will help us reach our fundraising goal.”
The money raised from this event will go towards the organization’s philanthropy, the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, which focuses on School and College Readiness, and to cultivate relationships, achieve excellence, impact their communities, and change the world.
The sisters of Phi Sigma Sigma are very excited to hold an event like this, because unlike past events, contestants are included from not just greek life. junior graphic design student Breyana Decker said, “It is great to see everyone come together at these events, not just greek life. It’s amazing to be both entertained while supporting a great cause.”
The event will be the first of many this school year, and many people belonging to both greek organizations, and other organizations such as sports teams, should be in attendance as well.
Many will be there in support of the brave eight contestants who will be on the stage that evening, and the organizations assures that it will be an event to remember.
Activities for Fraternity and Sorority Life, Michele Kaplan said, “These events are great because it gets everyone together and involved to raise money for some great charities.”
This is a wonderful opportunity for students to get involved no matter which club or organization they are in.
By supporting other organizations on campus like Phi Sigma Sigma, building a strong sense of community is just one of the many benefits of attending these events, entertainment aside
