The Beta Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Kappa at Louisiana Tech University embraced April showers with many philanthropic endeavors.
Sisters started off with visits to the Princeton Place nursing home to celebrate the home’s annual birthday party. Later on, Sigma Kappa teamed up with Pike for the Easter Eggstravaganza with the kids from Boys and Girls Country. Sisters helped paint faces, run games and control the bouncing structure for kids to play on.
This quarter, for the first time in its existence, Beta Epsilon held a Mother’s Pinning ceremony. At this event, sisters were able to purchase a mother’s pin in order to make them honorary members of Sigma Kappa.
Sisters also stepped it up in the sisterhood aspect of sorority. Weekly events were held and continue to be held at various places around town. Hump-Day Humphries from Counter Culture and Twisted Cow Fridays at the Lodge were two favorites among sisters.
To cap off the month, sisters began preparation for Greek Week 2012. This started with the Lives Lost for Alcohol vigil they participated in as well. Members sang songs and learned about the dangers of Drinking and Driving.
With formal season coming up, the sisters of Sigma Kappa dedicated much of their time remembering to be thankful for everything they have amist enjoying the weather of Spring with their sisters.
Beta Epsilon is looking to finish up the quarter strong with their annual Kickin’ Grass to Cure Alzheimer’s event.
