Greek Senate Represents Monmouth at NGLA Conference

Twelve delegates from Monmouth University’s Greek community attended the Northeast Greek Leadership Association (NGLA) conference this past weekend in Pittsburgh, PA. The students in attendance applied to represent Monmouth, alongside Assistant Director of Student Activites For Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL), Michele Kaplan.

Kaplan stated, “The NGLA conference builds community among students from a variety of fraternal experiences, challenges members to align their actions with fraternal values, and empowers advocates to transform and improve their communities. It Is exciting to see our students return with new perspectives and more definite future goals for the FSL community.” The purpose of the conference is to provide a number of resources for members of the Greek community that assist in furthering the mission of their organizations. The weekend-long event included members from Greek chapters all over the Northeast region.

Monmouth University’s delegates included the Presidents of the Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC), the Panhellenic Council (PHC), the Multicultural & Professional Greek Council (MPGC), and Greek Senate, as well as individual chapter presidents, and chapter delegates. Monmouth paid for the students’ attendance, as well as accommodations for the group in Pittsburgh. Each student was able to attend a variety of speaker seminars of their choice. The seminar topics ranged from how to recruit in different ways to learning more about how to strengthen your own leadership skills.

Delta Tau Delta Crowns 2016 Delta Queen

Shannon Marren crowned 2016 Delta Queen in Delta Tau Delta’s highly anticipated philanthropy event on Tuesday Feb. 17 in Pollak Theater.

Delta Queen is unlike any other Greek event on campus. The competition lasted three months showing the competitiveness of each organization that the campus does not typically see for Greek events.

“Something that I think sets our event apart is the time we take with having contestants and making them a part of the process. Raising money is not easy, especially on a college campus so by making this something that everyone could really be a part of, connect with, and enjoy is something we wanted to be sure that happened,” said Dylan Vargas, a senior marketing and management student and coordinator of this years Delta Queen.

This year, Delta Tau Delta raised a jaw dropping $6,510.58 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This money was raised from ticket sales, penny wars, and the contestants individual fundraising efforts during the second round of the completion in November.

Ice Hawks Cap Off Season in Newfound Conference

The Monmouth University Ice Hockey team’s season ended on Friday, February 29, with a 3-2 loss to University of Pennsylvania in West Chester, PA. The Hawks, the fourth seed in the Colonial States College Hockey Conference, finished their season 13-10-2 and a conference record of 7-5-2.

Monmouth took the lead early. Senior center, Kyle Blazier, took a shot that deflected off of junior left winger, Anthony DeFede, and went into UPenn’s goal. Minutes later, DeFede passed the puck to Mike Frade, a freshman right winger, who backhanded the puck into the net. UPenn scored a goal late in the second period to make the score 2-1.

With 10 minutes of play left in the third period, UPenn somehow manage to score from behind the goal line. “There was a lot of traffic in front of the net,” DeFede said. “I honestly don’t know how it went in.”

UPenn scored the game winner within the final minute and a half of play making the final score 3-2. Monmouth fought valiantly in this close, tight checking, low scoring game.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Crowns 2016 Mr. Pink and Green

On Friday, Feb. 26 Rock N‘ Raise annual charity event will take over the Hawk TV studio in the Jules L. Plangere Center for Communications building. Rock N’ Raise is a competition between bands who raise money and perform in hopes to win a grand prize and of course, bragging rights. This event is co-sponsored by WMCX and Hawk TVWMCX and Hawk TV will both stream and broadcast Rock N’ Raise live.

The idea of Rock N’ Raise first came about in 2013 after Hurricane Sandy devastated the Jersey Shore. Both WMCX and Hawk TV wanted to put on an event to raise money to help those affected by Sandy, so the two organizations joined forces. Rock N’ Raise since then has become an annual live production.

While WMCX and Hawk TV co-sponsor the event, the two organizations have very different responsibilities when planning Rock N’ Raise. “Hawk TV is required to make sure we have a full crew for the event and insure the overall flow of production. Specifically as executive producer I have to make sure all the tech equipment is working and that the staff knows their role,” said Joseph M. Ruggiero, a senior communication student and executive producer of Hawk TV.

Some of the bands that Trovamala secured to perform at Rock N’ Raise are The Mercury Brothers from Red Bank and Eastbourne from Asbury Park. “Larissa [Trovamala] has done an amazing job finding four local successful bands to perform, explains Hawk TV executive producer, Ruggiero.

PNM Orientation Introduces Women to Greek Life

PNM Orientation

The Panhellenic Council hosted its PNM Orientation on Tues. Feb. 2 and Wed. Feb. 3. in Wilson Hall Auditorium. This was an event open to all women who signed up for Spring Formal Recruitment.

PNM stands for “potential new member” and each PNM was required to attend one of the two orientation sessions. At each session, the women were asked to view a PowerPoint presentation given by Ashley McMahon, Panhellenic Council Vice President of Recruitment.

After introducing the women to what their schedules will contain in the next week, they were divided into specific color groups and paired up with two or three recruitment counselors. The counselors would be the women to guide them through the recruitment process. Their groups would go over any important recruitment details, such as schedules, conflicts, and questions regarding the weekend. Afterward, the women were sent on their way with all they needed to know about recruitment and contact information if they wanted to know more from their counselors.

Panhellenic Community Celebrates A Successful Recruitment

Excitement and nerves ran high on Friday Feb. 5, 2016 as undergraduate women at Monmouth University began their first day of formal sorority recruitment.

Panic set in for students of Greek life and those interested in joining after receiving an email from the University cancelling classes for Friday afternoon. Thankfully, the roads cleared up and formal recruitment remained as scheduled.

“Recruitment is like Christmas for sororities so I was so nervous when it was rumored to be cancelled. Almost every student interested in joining still came out despite the weather so I am so glad everything worked out in the end,” said Danielle Romanowski a junior communications major.

Formal recruitment is the process in which students meet every sorority on campus and ultimately join the one that best suits them. Formal recruitment occurs for all Panhellenic organizations on campus, which include Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Sigma Tau, Delta Phi Epsilon, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Phi Sigma Sigma.

This year saw over 250 women participate in recruitment, a significant increase when compared to past years. “There are so many more girls going through recruitment than there were when I went through which is absolutely amazing. Joining Greek life at Monmouth truly changed my life and I am so excited to see more girls getting involved,” said Kerrin Hageny, an alumni of Monmouth University.
