Had to throw both sides of the video up... MAB strolling as rgh
Decided to throw some turn- about videos up.. they're fun, and be careful bros when you stroll.. it doesn't look good when other orgs can rip the stroll better than you can.. lol. so get to learning.. These Reds are on POINT..
2012 Stompfest winners, down @ the university of Tennessee, Kappa Chi are doing it big. Large venue, huge turnout...... and representing the Blue and White.... MAB brothers.
I'm loving this. Expansion into Nevada is a must, just like we need to continue growing in the mighty Eastern Region, the same is for the fraternity as a whole. if you actually click on the youtube video, you'll see a lot of uniformed statements, regarding the diversity of our organization. It should be stated we were founded on the ideal of the inclusion rather than exclusion. That point aside, enjoy the Coming Out of these new brothers and the establishment of this new chapter.
I've been trying to teach you guys this three part rendition of Phi Beta Sigma's Got Soul for quite some time. But i guess it's easier to just show you guys. Here's the one I learned, though I'm quite sure there are others. Enjoy & G.O.M.A.B.!!!!!!!!
Light the White House Purple to Celebrate 75th Anniversary of March of Dimes and as Symbol of Hope to Preemie Families
The volunteers and supporters of the March of Dimes ask the President to light the White House in purple on January 3, 2013, to honor the 75th anniversary of the founding of the March of Dimes by President Franklin Roosevelt, and as a symbol of hope for families whose children have been born too soon. Just as the March of Dimes galvanized America to defeat polio, today millions of March of Dimes volunteers are working to support research and programs to identify the causes of premature birth. Help to honor babies born prematurely by lighting in purple the birthplace of the March of Dimes: the White House.
MARCH OF DIMES Celebrate 75th Anniversary
Winning the viewer's choice award and the first place grand prize, the Kappa Chi chapter of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity stepped their way to victory at the the "13th Annual Southeastern Stomp Fest."
"They deserved it," Carlos Jackson, senior in psychology, said.
Phi Beta Sigmas donned bullet-proof vests and electric blue shoes and expended a lot of effort into their performance Saturday night. Their steps included the longest running stomps of all the organizations and loud receiving calls from their sister organization, Zeta Phi Beta.
Other organizations that participated in the event included the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and the Allure Dance team. After a break, the host brought out representatives from each participanting group.
Paige Parker, sophomore in psychology, said the event was exciting, but she wasn't entirely impressed with its host.
The show was hosted by YouTube personality Spoken Reasons and presented by the Black Cultural Performing Committee. The high energy of the show was also due to the National Pan-Hellenic Council fraternities and sororities.
Spoken Reasons, also known as John Baker, is a rising star who has gained popularity through his YouTube skits and parody songs. His hosting style brought a more lighthearted feel to the show and also crowd appeal. Baker not only introduced upcoming Greek organizations, but held a last minute singing contest for women and best dressed contest for men.
Omega Psi Phi fraternity was showcased with giant '60s afros and white suits complimented with their signature gold boots. They were received with a lot of love from the crowd and visiting alumni.
Members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority had a military-themed step. They wore tank tops, army fatigued pants and hot pink tennis shoes. The introduction video recalled a Major Payne-style of lineup and opened with drills.
The Deltas wowed the crowd with a number of athletic movements and chants, all in leather suits. They accomplished a pyramid with six members and proceeded to jump off and land neatly in a row. The sorority also included theatrics with ladies claiming about stolen mirrors and steps.
Men of the Mu Rho chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi also had military-themed attire. They successfully twirled their canes in synchronization, which was a source of anticipation for many audience members. As soon as they began using two canes decorated with red and white tape, many shouted out two canes, or rather 2kanes, in reference to 2 Chainz, the rapper.
Sydney Jackson, junior in recreation and sport management, said the annual event has improved.
"This year was a lot better than last, and the Sigmas performed well."
"Bleed blue, bleed blue, until you cry white!” Chants and stomps radiated through the East Hall of Winona State University’s Kryzsko Commons as a crowd looked on with wide eyes, cameras flashing and red lights of handheld video cameras sparkling Jan. 22 in Winona. Phi Beta Sigma fraternity’s six new members formed a cohesive team as they marched single-file into their probate—the "coming out" ceremony for those pledging.
The members of the newest chartered Greek organization at WSU performed their probate, premiering the style and attitude they plan to bring to WSU's Greek life. Intense deliveries of Phi Beta Sigma history as well as greetings made to former noble members drove the crowd—many fellow WSU Greek members—wild.
Then the six removed their masks and revealed the importance of the newest fraternity.
Phi Beta Sigma is the first multicultural Greek fraternity at WSU. Vice President Kevin Pace, who helped organize the group of men he believed could become leaders, said it was their time to make a difference in the Winona community.
“I wanted to make sure that we had a group of guys who were willing to work hard,” Pace said. He said he believes the diversity aspect of Phi Beta Sigma will create a more inclusive atmosphere, and that members will seek ways to bring unity both to the WSU campus and larger community.
The Phi Beta Sigma fraternity was founded in 1914 by three male students at Howard University, the prestigious and historically African-American college in Washington, D.C. Membership—restricted to men—is based on a level of commitment as well as demonstrating leadership ability. Other requirements include a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA, attending and working toward obtaining a degree at a recognized college or university. Their mission includes creating an environment that encourages connecting with community.
In order to bring a chapter to Winona, Pace and prospective Winona members studied intensively with the state's only other chapter, located at the University of Minnesota. Last fall, the men traveled to Minneapolis every weekend, where they learned history, created greetings and learned traditional steps. During weekdays back in Winona, they held practice nightly to foster their growing bond.
Member Josh Brandon called the organization "a group of men committed to bettering ourselves and our community." While it begins in college, he said, "it is a lifelong commitment to greatness."
Member Michael Onuigbo agreed.
“(We) want to be a part of something greater than ourselves, and (have) ambition to leave a positive footprint on the school and community even after we leave here,” he said.
The Winona State Sigmas' community contributions include volunteering at the Maplewood Family Center where they children in grades 7-12, and hosting charitable events including blood drives. Members will perform at WSU at the 34th Annual Soul Food Dinner February 19, co-sponsored by WSU’s Black Cultural Awareness Club.
