Three Students Re-establish Lambdas at Monmouth

untitledThe University’s Greek organizations welcome the Pi chapter of Lambda Theta Phi (ΛΘΦ) Latin Fraternity Inc. back to their community after almost seven years of absence.

In 1975, Lambda Theta Phi became the first nationally recognized Latino Greek organization. On Feb. 28, 1993, the 12 founding brothers of Lambda Theta Phi’s Pi chapter came together and brought the organization to the University. The last brothers to be on campus were in 2008, until now.

The line brothers leading the fraternity’s reestablishment on campus include: Trever Carpenter, a junior health studies student; Jonathan Nunez, a junior criminal justice student; and Hauscar Holguin, a sophomore music student.

“The three of us are ready and excited for the opportunity to put in a lot of work to help our chapter expand and to show Monmouth University and the students what our fraternity is about,” said Carpenter. “In the short time that we have been brothers, we have raised money for charities, volunteered and, my favorite, saluted our way back onto Monmouth campus.”

Carpenter explained that the ideals Lambda Theta Phi holds are academic excellence, brotherhood, leadership, unity, and community service. During the reestablishment process, Carpenter and the other newest Pi chapter members were able to meet brothers from all over New Jersey who helped them learn about their organization. They were also able to meet with Lambda Theta Phi alumni of the University and “began to develop a brotherly bond with men that were established in their careers with children and family,” according to Carpenter.

The Music Alliance

On Thursday, Jan. 29, The Music Alliance (TMA) hosted its first live performance of the semester in the Rebecca Stafford Student Center. The show featured a performance by a new act on campus, a rock band called The Unknown. They played a set that included a combination of covers and original compositions.

The Music Alliance is Monmouth University’s student-run organization for live music and events. TMA is the sister organization of Blue Hawk Records, Monmouth’s student-run record label. The organization provides artists and musicians of a wide variety of genres for events on and off campus, as well as hosting their own shows.

This is the first of a semester long string of showcase performances hosted on campus by TMA. These showcases are a continuation of the showcases the Alliance has held in previous semesters, featuring many different artists within the Monmouth University student population.

The Alliance also hosts shows off campus at venues such as the Brighton Bar, where it is having its end of the year blowout show on April 16.

TMA was founded in 2012 by student Andrew Boxman to help give artists on campus opportunities to play live shows, as well as to provide performers for on campus events hosted by other organizations.

The University’s Residence Hall Association (RHA), Student Activities Board (SAB), and Alpha Xi Delta (AXiD) teamed up for a co-sponsored Holiday Craft Party last Friday, Dec. 5, in Mullaney Hall.

Holiday spirits were high last week as RHA, SAB, and AXiD hosted a holiday-inspired craft event for students to make gifts for themselves, their families, and even a children’s hospital. The event took place from 7 to 10 pm on the first and second floors of Mullaney Hall.

On the first floor, students were able to “stuff and fluff” their own stuffed animals, fill mason jars with the ingredients for different holiday recipes such as cookies, and make street art. Students who made their way upstairs to the second floor participated in the making of crafts such as glass-etching and street signs. All of the materials for the crafts were provided to the students free of charge as long as supplies lasted.
