Our Fall “NYC” Formal!

This weekend we had our annual Fall Formal to celebrate our chapter and sisterhood! This year’s formal was “A Night in NYC” themed at Tapps Arts Center!
The night was full of chicken nuggets, dance moves, and a wonderful time with our sisters!
Shoutout to Alex and Lauren for planning this amazing event and to everyone who came out to celebrate!

Our Nations of the World project

Our Global Women’s Education Symposium was a huge success!! We partnered with Clothed in Hope to host a great discussion on an important issue and learn more about how they are fighting to end the poverty cycle in Zambia by educating and uplifting Zambian women!

We raised over $600 that will go directly towards funding their 2018 classes of Zambian women!
If you’d like to donate or purchase items to help their cause, please visit Clothedinhope.org and use our free shipping code (OMEGAPHIALPHA).

We were also on Greene St. and Pickens St. for our “Not Your Average Bake Sale!” later in the week to promote Clothed in Hope, and sold some delicious Zambian desserts!
