[00:00:00.660]Okay, well, hi everyone.
[00:00:03.510]Welcome to our presentation, which is
[00:00:06.090]about joining culturally based-fraternal organizations.
[00:00:10.890]First, we'd like to do a Land Acknowledgement.
[00:00:13.380]The University of Nebraska is a public,
[00:00:16.470]with campuses and programs
[00:00:17.760]across the state that reside on the past, present,
[00:00:20.670]and future homelands of the Pawnee, Ponca,
[00:00:23.457]Oto-Missouri, Omaha, Dakota, Lakota,
[00:00:27.840]Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Kaw Peoples, as well
[00:00:30.690]as the relocated Ho Chunk Winnebago, Iowa, Sac,
[00:00:34.770]and Fox People.
[00:00:36.390]With this acknowledgement, we affirm indigenous sovereignty
[00:00:39.090]and we will work to hold our community
[00:00:41.610]and institution more accountable
[00:00:43.110]to the needs of indigenous people.
[00:00:50.340]All right, so we'll just go ahead
[00:00:51.630]and introduce ourselves.
[00:00:53.790]First, on the left, you'll see Quinna Hogan.
[00:00:55.950]She is the Assistant Director
[00:00:58.260]of Fraternity and Sorority Life, as well
[00:01:00.690]as the advisor for MGCN and NPHC.
[00:01:04.140]My name is Abby Javier.
[00:01:05.430]I am the MGC summer staff
[00:01:07.980]and I am part of Lambda Theta Nu Sorority Incorporated.
[00:01:12.210]And then my name is Nyarial Nyoak, I'm the NPHC
[00:01:15.570]summer staff, and I'm a sister of Zeta Phi Beta
[00:01:21.090]Cool, so who are we?
[00:01:23.430]As you may know, we are a part
[00:01:24.660]of the fraternity sorority of life here on campus.
[00:01:27.480]We've been active on campus
[00:01:29.190]for quite a bit of time, 154 plus years,
[00:01:32.910]and currently we have 54 fraternities and sororities
[00:01:36.330]on campus that you can seek membership to.
[00:01:39.870]Community size, we're really big.
[00:01:41.490]We're about one in five students here on campus are a member
[00:01:46.170]of the fraternity sorority community, so that's nice.
[00:01:48.900]So that makes up roughly 4,100 students here on campus.
[00:01:53.610]And then ways to join,
[00:01:55.110]we have four councils that you can seek membership to,
[00:01:58.470]while we are going to be talking
[00:01:59.730]about two of our four councils here today.
[00:02:04.890]All right, so some of our fraternity and sorority values,
[00:02:08.190]our first one is academic achievement.
[00:02:11.400]We like to really put academics first here,
[00:02:15.960]as you can see our All-UNL GPA is a 3.191
[00:02:22.590]compared to our all-Greek GPA is a 3.409.
[00:02:26.700]So we really hold our students up to standards.
[00:02:30.891]We do a lot of civic engagement as well.
[00:02:33.450]So we like to work with local communities,
[00:02:37.020]do our philanthropy work here within the community as well.
[00:02:41.700]There is a lot of leadership development,
[00:02:44.040]so there are positions where you can be part
[00:02:47.250]of the executive board, where you can hold positions
[00:02:49.800]where you can be on committees, and just help with all
[00:02:53.280]of these events and planning, executing really
[00:02:56.430]anything you want to do or a skill you want to learn,
[00:02:58.948]you can pick up with these leadership developments.
[00:03:03.330]And we also try to
[00:03:06.930]exceed inclusive excellence.
[00:03:09.660]We believe that we are trying to help you find a home away
[00:03:12.840]from home, somewhere where you feel
[00:03:14.490]like you can belong and be yourself here on campus.
[00:03:21.300]And then some of the yearly events we do
[00:03:23.760]as a fraternity and sorority community includes homecoming,
[00:03:27.143]as well as leadership conferences, this photo that
[00:03:30.450]in front of us is all four councils.
[00:03:33.570]We're in attendance at AFLB,
[00:03:35.970]which is a fraternal organization kind
[00:03:38.130]of leadership conference.
[00:03:38.963]So we attend those.
[00:03:40.770]We also have leadership retreats as well as
[00:03:42.960]Greek Week, Greek Gala, as well as Greek Preview.
[00:03:50.939]History of our council we'll review right here.
[00:03:55.110]So a little bit of our council history.
[00:03:57.480]MGC is the Multicultural Greek Council.
[00:04:00.540]We started in 1994 with Sigma Lambda Beta
[00:04:04.350]International Fraternity Incorporated.
[00:04:07.260]They were the first ones to establish it.
[00:04:09.120]And currently MGC has eight recognized organizations.
[00:04:14.273]And then for NPHC, also known as the National Pan-Hellenic
[00:04:17.160]Council, started back in 1916 with the Eta Chapter
[00:04:21.180]of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated.
[00:04:23.850]Currently on campus we have five of the nine
[00:04:27.870]And then three more are petitioning
[00:04:30.000]to recharter or bring a
[00:04:32.610]new chapter onto campus.
[00:04:39.240]All right, perfect.
[00:04:40.080]So a little bit about the Multicultural Greek Council.
[00:04:44.130]The purpose of the Multicultural Greek Council here
[00:04:46.410]at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is to create
[00:04:49.410]and maintain high academic, moral, and social standards
[00:04:52.440]for member organizations of MGC by,
[00:04:56.220]we do a lot of addressing, coordinating, and developing
[00:04:59.820]strategic action plans, unifying all of our organizations,
[00:05:04.170]promote higher education,
[00:05:06.000]provide community service opportunities, again,
[00:05:09.180]enhance leadership and serve as a forum for MGC affiliates
[00:05:13.080]and the liaison between MGC affiliates, recognize student
[00:05:16.440]organizations and the campus community,
[00:05:18.780]thereby working towards improving a campus climate.
[00:05:21.870]So when you join an organization
[00:05:23.970]of the Multicultural Greek Council,
[00:05:25.470]you don't just join that organization,
[00:05:28.260]you join this huge council as well.
[00:05:33.900]And a few of our events that we do
[00:05:35.790]for MGC, we do semesterly, we do an MGC week.
[00:05:41.010]That whole week can consist of different social events,
[00:05:43.680]community service opportunities, and educational programs.
[00:05:47.880]Each of our organizations also have
[00:05:51.060]a week dedicated to them.
[00:05:53.340]So they will also put on these different types
[00:05:55.650]of programs that people are all welcome to come to.
[00:05:59.370]We participate in the Office
[00:06:03.732]of Fraternity Authority Life and Oasis Stroll-Off.
[00:06:06.690]We do the block party, multicultural Greek 101s,
[00:06:10.140]community service events, philanthropy events,
[00:06:12.330]and we also participate in the Yard Show.
[00:06:18.150]So our purpose here at the national,
[00:06:20.820]not at national, but within the National
[00:06:23.550]Pan-Hellenic Council at UNL, is to foster the cooperative
[00:06:26.700]actions of its members dealing with matters,
[00:06:30.330]mutual concerns to the end.
[00:06:32.220]The MPAC here at UNL promotes the well-being
[00:06:34.590]of its affiliate fraternities and sororities,
[00:06:36.720]and provides leadership training to its constituents.
[00:06:39.630]Above all else, the NPHC here at UNL endeavors
[00:06:42.240]to promote unity among council members.
[00:06:45.660]And one thing for me that points out,
[00:06:48.660]that stands out is dealing with matters of mutual concern.
[00:06:52.200]Obviously there are things, you know,
[00:06:53.520]that we deal with as students as as well as
[00:06:56.940]out in the community.
[00:06:57.780]So being able to come together
[00:06:59.040]as a council to discuss those matters and come
[00:07:02.220]up with an action plan to combat that is really important
[00:07:06.660]within our council.
[00:07:08.160]And then some of the things that we do, semesterly
[00:07:12.150]NPHC does host its own council week.
[00:07:15.480]Usually in February we host different socials,
[00:07:18.330]community service events,
[00:07:19.800]as well as educational programming.
[00:07:21.990]And then each chapter
[00:07:23.490]on campus also has its own chapter week that caters
[00:07:27.060]towards their different national programs,
[00:07:29.790]philanthropies, and stuff along that line.
[00:07:32.160]And then we also do go to conferences.
[00:07:35.220]There's an annual national NPC conference that happens
[00:07:39.210]out every October.
[00:07:41.280]We also participate in the fraternity sorority life
[00:07:43.440]and Oasis Stroll-Off, as well as a block party.
[00:07:46.380]And then we also host Black Greek 101, as well as
[00:07:49.440]community service events, philanthropy events,
[00:07:52.020]as well as the Yard Show.
[00:07:57.473]And then we get to the topic of a new member intake process.
[00:08:01.020]What is intake?
[00:08:02.040]Intake is a process designed to keep the university
[00:08:06.180]organization in those participating in intake
[00:08:09.660]in open and transparent with one another,
[00:08:12.900]just so this process is transparent, just so everyone knows
[00:08:15.930]that you are going through intake and nothing fishy
[00:08:19.860]something along that line is going on.
[00:08:21.840]And then when does intake happen?
[00:08:23.130]Usually intake happens either in the fall
[00:08:25.860]and spring semesters in accordance to organization's
[00:08:29.520]international or national requirements.
[00:08:31.980]Sometimes intakes also happens in the summer, but again
[00:08:34.350]that is at the discretion of their headquarters.
[00:08:38.640]And then what should I know
[00:08:39.810]before going into an intake process?
[00:08:42.630]Each organization has a different process
[00:08:44.940]for what a new member education will look like,
[00:08:47.670]but you should know that the process should not take longer
[00:08:50.400]than 12 weeks to start or finish, from start to finish.
[00:08:54.780]And then the intake process, we'll also have a combination
[00:08:57.450]of the following activities, membership education meetings,
[00:09:01.200]bonding activities between your intake class
[00:09:04.470]and the members within the chapter,
[00:09:06.930]community service events, test and evaluation,
[00:09:10.140]and the new member presentation slash reveal to
[00:09:12.570]conclude your process.
[00:09:19.403]So how do I prepare?
[00:09:21.180]First of all, you have to attend a Multicultural Greek
[00:09:24.600]or Black Greek 101.
[00:09:26.730]These are hosted by our advisor, Quinn Hogan.
[00:09:29.310]And usually they are
[00:09:31.200]at the very beginning of the spring or fall semester.
[00:09:35.220]As soon as you do one,
[00:09:36.360]it's good for one whole calendar year.
[00:09:38.370]So I really recommend doing one as soon as
[00:09:41.070]possible just to kind of get a little bit more information.
[00:09:44.670]And you can go on from there and decide
[00:09:46.950]whether you want to or you don't want to continue.
[00:09:49.950]It's a very good starter to just get your feet in the water.
[00:09:54.300]The second step is you must be enrolled
[00:09:57.600]in 12 or more credit hours.
[00:10:00.690]You have to be a full-time student.
[00:10:02.250]And some organizations ask you to have 12
[00:10:05.490]or more credit hours already earned.
[00:10:09.150]There are some organizations that extend membership
[00:10:12.270]to first-time freshmen.
[00:10:14.040]So I would just ask the organization that you're interested
[00:10:16.770]in about what their requirements are.
[00:10:20.580]You do have to have 12, be taking 12 credit
[00:10:23.310]hours to be trying to join the organization.
[00:10:27.330]But it kind of depends
[00:10:28.350]whether you need to already have 12 or more.
[00:10:32.400]You must have a GPA of a 2.5 or higher.
[00:10:37.050]2.5 is the standard
[00:10:38.700]for our office of fraternity and sorority life,
[00:10:42.870]or we say or hire because there are some organizations
[00:10:45.960]that would ask you to have a higher GPA.
[00:10:49.920]Some ask you to have a 2.6
[00:10:51.810]or some may ask you to have a 2.7.
[00:10:54.090]So it's really important to just check
[00:10:55.470]with that organization
[00:10:57.150]and just ask these questions of what they require.
[00:11:00.750]And four, you must attend the council and chapter events
[00:11:04.860]and informationals throughout the fall and spring semester.
[00:11:08.070]So these events are just
[00:11:09.750]for you to get to know the chapter, get to know its members,
[00:11:13.080]being able to create those connections and see if you're,
[00:11:15.810]if they're a good fit for you
[00:11:16.890]and if you're a good fit for them.
[00:11:19.050]Informationals also give you all of this information,
[00:11:22.680]whether it's credit hours, GPAs, or different events
[00:11:26.100]and different values that the organization holds
[00:11:29.010]that you can learn at these informationals.
[00:11:35.370]So a little bit about the MGC recruitment process.
[00:11:38.730]The recruitment period starts pretty fast
[00:11:40.950]in the beginning of the semester.
[00:11:43.080]It's usually the first one to three weeks
[00:11:45.120]of the semester where organizations will be having
[00:11:48.660]their informationals will be having their social events.
[00:11:52.350]A lot of organizations go to Big Red Welcome.
[00:11:55.830]And so at those places there are tables where
[00:11:59.190]you can learn, play games,
[00:12:00.810]and just get to know the organizations.
[00:12:04.350]After that, once you attend an informational,
[00:12:07.500]there is the bid extension.
[00:12:09.420]So that's where they will reach out to you
[00:12:11.250]and let you know if you got a bid or not.
[00:12:13.650]It will either be by email, by phone call,
[00:12:17.430]it kind of just depends once again on the organization.
[00:12:20.067]And you can always ask
[00:12:21.420]and just make sure how they will communicate with you.
[00:12:25.350]After you accept the bid,
[00:12:27.810]there is the new member induction, again
[00:12:31.290]this is where you have a little celebration
[00:12:35.370]and just little traditions going on.
[00:12:37.920]You do the new member education
[00:12:39.690]which is the six to 10 weeks of classes, projects,
[00:12:43.710]service events, kind of just that time for you
[00:12:46.650]to bond and also learn about the organization itself.
[00:12:50.340]And at the end there is the initiation,
[00:12:52.530]which is the welcoming social celebration.
[00:12:55.500]And usually a lot
[00:12:56.520]of our organizations end with a new member showcase,
[00:13:00.450]which we'll talk about here in the end.
[00:13:03.953]And the NPC also has a producing more process.
[00:13:07.860]The chapters will host a different council slash
[00:13:10.380]events that cater, you know, socials or
[00:13:13.890]either like community service events to where you can attend
[00:13:16.650]and get to know the chapter and kind of feel 'em
[00:13:18.300]out and see if it's a best, a good fit for you.
[00:13:21.360]And then from there, chapters will host an
[00:13:23.580]informational meeting where
[00:13:25.170]typically they ask potential members to
[00:13:28.287]come in business casual attire,
[00:13:30.780]they'll ask for resumes, stuff along that line.
[00:13:33.030]And then from there you'll go through an interview process
[00:13:35.880]and after that interview process
[00:13:37.200]you'll be notified about either through email,
[00:13:40.530]mail, or phone number that you were selected.
[00:13:43.800]And then from there you'll go
[00:13:44.820]through the new member education process, which is
[00:13:47.310]that six to 10 week process where you'll go
[00:13:50.280]through different, you know, projects, classes,
[00:13:53.040]new member education with the members within the chapter.
[00:13:56.730]And then from there, once you are initiated, you'll
[00:13:59.640]have a little initiation slash virtual ceremony stating
[00:14:03.450]that you are a member of the organization.
[00:14:05.670]And then at the very end you'll have a new member
[00:14:07.920]presentation slash reveal to reveal yourself
[00:14:10.650]to the community.
[00:14:11.880]And so speaking of that,
[00:14:14.130]we will go into culture and traditions.
[00:14:17.970]And then as you may have seen
[00:14:19.920]maybe on TikTok, maybe you know,
[00:14:22.620]if you've been out and about where Greeks have been at,
[00:14:26.070]we do things, or not a thing,
[00:14:27.840]but a dance called a stepping slash strolling.
[00:14:31.830]It has a long history behind it.
[00:14:34.110]Both come from roots in African traditions,
[00:14:38.430]African-American slavery, and Black church.
[00:14:40.500]As historically HBCUs in, you know,
[00:14:44.790]universities participate in stepping and strolling as well
[00:14:48.870]as just modern Black Greek culture.
[00:14:51.750]Almost in all steps and strolls,
[00:14:53.370]you will find members moving
[00:14:54.570]in a clockwise fashion in a circle.
[00:14:57.960]The circle represents unity and strength.
[00:15:00.150]And the counterclockwise motion is a resemblance
[00:15:02.850]of African rituals.
[00:15:04.650]African foot dances such as the Welly gumboot,
[00:15:08.100]is heavily influenced in art today.
[00:15:10.980]And then throughout the mid twenties, fraternity
[00:15:13.170]and sororities members would participate in the Death March
[00:15:16.470]on college campuses where they would march
[00:15:19.950]reciting different history hymns and poems
[00:15:22.410]of the organization.
[00:15:23.820]And this was often seen as the final activity
[00:15:26.940]of the pledge process.
[00:15:28.410]Also kind of going into your new member education,
[00:15:30.780]or not education, but new member presentation.
[00:15:33.300]And then hand clapping and foot stomping came
[00:15:35.430]from the Black church.
[00:15:37.320]This stylistic approach is perfect a synchrony came
[00:15:42.600]from the African American G.I. Joes.
[00:15:45.480]And then I have this circled rule right here.
[00:15:48.330]I always emphasize this, especially for individuals
[00:15:51.360]who are kind of getting to know Greek life.
[00:15:56.100]This one rule, if you don't remember anything,
[00:15:58.260]please remember this.
[00:15:59.859]And it is to never break the line or interrupt
[00:16:03.930]This is shown as respect to the organization,
[00:16:06.930]to its members.
[00:16:07.763]And so if you see, say you're at a party or something
[00:16:10.140]along that line, you'll see kind of members
[00:16:12.360]of an organization stepping in or strolling.
[00:16:15.360]We ask that you do not break their line.
[00:16:18.056]If you do that, that is seen as a sign of disrespect.
[00:16:20.670]And then going into our next slide is a video kind
[00:16:23.790]of outlining with the different culture and
[00:16:26.550]like the rooted, the tradition behind stepping and
[00:16:47.880]Whether you call it stepping, strolling,
[00:16:50.280]or party walking, one thing's for sure,
[00:16:52.830]it's exciting to be a part of.
[00:16:54.720]One of the most interesting and insightful sub-genres
[00:16:57.120]of stepping is strolling, also known as party walking.
[00:17:00.330]Jacque Malone defines party walking
[00:17:02.610]as organized line movement performed
[00:17:04.440]around the floor at a party.
[00:17:06.390]Other sources define strolling as a cultural dance
[00:17:08.580]often performed in unison and
[00:17:10.380]in a circle to symbolize unity and strength.
[00:17:13.110]Like stepping, strolling has historical ties
[00:17:15.540]to both African and American art forms.
[00:17:19.050]Strolling's African roots can be traced back to
[00:17:21.570]South African and Ghanaian dance forms.
[00:17:24.000]One particular dance, the Ring Shout,
[00:17:26.340]is a religious dance produced
[00:17:27.690]by African slaves where participants shuffled single file
[00:17:30.900]and counterclockwise to music.
[00:17:32.850]According to Sterling Stuckey
[00:17:34.530]professor of History at Northwestern University,
[00:17:37.200]the Ring Shout is a sacred ritual
[00:17:39.270]in which worshipers shift their feet and move their bodies
[00:17:42.000]in a circle to symbolize the connection
[00:17:43.770]between the past, the present, and the future.
[00:17:47.010]Strolling's American roots begin
[00:17:48.900]with Black Greek letter organizations
[00:17:50.790]in the mid 20th century, when the ritual ceremony
[00:17:53.550]called the Death March became popular
[00:17:55.530]on historically Black college and university campuses.
[00:17:58.530]Dr. Walter Kimbro defines Death Marches
[00:18:01.020]as the final activity of the BTLO pledge process.
[00:18:04.440]Pledges will spend hours marching
[00:18:06.420]around campus, reciting poems,
[00:18:08.490]and singing organizational hymns.
[00:18:11.370]The history of strolling can also be traced back
[00:18:13.920]to the Black church.
[00:18:15.210]It was here that hand clapping, foot stomping, singing
[00:18:18.120]and dancing became mainstays in Black religious culture.
[00:18:21.330]Additional connections include black military G.I.s
[00:18:24.360]and classic soul music acts
[00:18:25.860]like the Temptations, the Supremes, and the Jackson Five.
[00:18:29.605]♪ To let you go ♪
[00:18:30.840]Today, strolling is a staple
[00:18:32.670]on college campuses across the country.
[00:18:35.130]Fraternities and sororities hold stroll exhibitions,
[00:18:37.950]some with cash prizes and scholarships.
[00:18:40.620]Since the mid 1980s, many fraternities
[00:18:42.960]and sororities in the National Association
[00:18:45.330]of Latino Fraternal Organizations, also known as NALFO,
[00:18:49.020]have adopted strolling as their art form of choice.
[00:18:51.840]Out of respect for Black Greek letter organizations,
[00:18:54.090]some do not step, but rather participate in strolling
[00:18:57.120]as an alternative.
[00:19:01.650]From Death Marches to dance hall,
[00:19:03.360]strolling is now performed in some way, shape,
[00:19:05.790]or form by Greeks of all councils.
[00:19:08.220]However, there is one rule that you must remember,
[00:19:11.430]never under any circumstances break the line
[00:19:14.580]or interrupt a fraternity or a sorority stroll.
[00:19:17.280]The dominant principle here is respect for the organization.
[00:19:21.180]As time moves forward,
[00:19:22.680]we will all witness strolling becoming more popular
[00:19:25.110]amongst Greeks of all councils.
[00:19:26.940]However, it is up to all of us to pass down the history
[00:19:30.450]traditions, and customs from generation to generation.
[00:19:45.593]And as we talked about before, usually at the end of your
[00:19:50.880]initiation there is a new member presentation.
[00:19:54.030]And this is where we are able to present our newest members.
[00:19:59.070]The new members go through the history, through some
[00:20:03.180]of what they learned, and they tell us who they are
[00:20:06.690]and often step and stroll at the end.
[00:20:09.360]Honestly, this is probably one
[00:20:10.740]of the biggest moments in our Greek community.
[00:20:12.930]It's a time for all of us to get together
[00:20:14.790]and celebrate our new members and our community growing.
[00:20:18.750]As you can see, these are some pictures
[00:20:21.390]of people that have done their new member presentation
[00:20:25.980]on our campus, and it's just a really fun time
[00:20:29.580]for everyone to get together and
[00:20:30.960]for you to be a big part of this new community.
[00:20:37.770]So on the screen here is the contact info
[00:20:41.490]for both the office as well as both councils.
[00:20:44.730]So if you needed to reach out to Quinna our advisor
[00:20:48.600]or one of our two councils, we have our socials right here,
[00:20:52.860]as well as the office's mailing address and phone number.
[00:20:57.330]Any questions, concerns, comments, you'd like to reach out,
[00:20:59.940]please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
[00:21:01.800]We love hearing from students.
[00:21:04.680]Yeah, and then in addition to that,
[00:21:05.970]we also have different upcoming events.
[00:21:08.040]Once you get to campus, I always recommend to students
[00:21:12.000]that they should attend all the welcome back events
[00:21:14.820]just so you're able to meet the other new students as well
[00:21:17.430]as mingle with the current students on campus.
[00:21:20.932]Get that friendship going and whatnot.
[00:21:23.340]And so with our first event
[00:21:25.680]on top here is the BIPOC Welcome Reception.
[00:21:28.230]It's our third annual.
[00:21:29.400]And then if you don't know what BIPOC stands for,
[00:21:31.173]it stands for Black Indigenous People Of Color.
[00:21:35.100]Last year the turnout was amazing over,
[00:21:37.097]I want to say 150 plus people.
[00:21:40.516]And so this upcoming year or school year,
[00:21:43.740]they'll be in a bigger room.
[00:21:45.390]And so that'll be on the 19th of August.
[00:21:47.940]Street Fair, also known as Free Stuff Sunday,
[00:21:50.700]will be on the 20th,
[00:21:51.630]which is the day before the semester starts.
[00:21:54.120]That's a good time to kind of go out and meet the Greeks.
[00:21:56.610]They'll be out tabling in front of the
[00:22:02.400]The Memorial Stadium Drive.
[00:22:04.830]Yes, thank you.
[00:22:06.147]And so it's a good time to go out and meet the
[00:22:08.670]Greeks and stuff like that,
[00:22:09.600]and get new stuff for free of course.
[00:22:12.330]And then the Club Fair will be happening Wednesday,
[00:22:15.490]And then MGC slash NPHC Block Party,
[00:22:18.450]which will be on the Thursday.
[00:22:19.890]We'll be out in the plaza.
[00:22:21.710]In this photo right here is actually us from last semester
[00:22:24.600]from the block party.
[00:22:25.920]Overall its a very good turnout.
[00:22:27.510]And there's a lot of good feedbacks from the freshman class.
[00:22:31.050]And then you can meet us
[00:22:32.700]with Meet the Greeks on August 30th.
[00:22:35.100]It's going to be from 5 to 7:00 PM on that day.
[00:22:38.430]And then for you wanting to get involved
[00:22:41.940]with MGC or NPHC, you are required to attend
[00:22:46.080]either Multicultural Greek 101,
[00:22:48.090]which will be on September 6th.
[00:22:49.920]Or Black Greek 101, which will be on September 13th.
[00:22:52.770]And that's going to be one
[00:22:54.300]of the first couple sessions that you can attend.
[00:22:56.760]And so say those dates don't work for you,
[00:22:59.160]there'll be more dates coming out
[00:23:00.480]within the fall semester that you could attend.
[00:23:05.280]And then with that, that is the end of our presentation.
[00:23:09.360]Yeah, thank you so much for joining us
[00:23:12.570]And can't wait to see you guys on campus.
