The Lambda Beta Chapter at Sam Houston State Houston held an anti-bullying campaignon October 22nd in order to educate students on the effects of bullying.
Attendees of the event pledged to "stomp out bullying" by placing a footprint on the sidewalk of the campus mall with their name or respective student organization's name listed on the footprint.
This past month, The Chi Beta Chapter at Arizona State University showcased a #CultureIs Campaign where they asked their college peers to write a phrase on a white board stating what they feel Culture means to them. The Entity was able to get over 100 submissions from students and staff members throughout the campus!
With the start of a new fiscal year in SLB and recent new school year, I want to take a moment to welcome out new student members and thank our dedicated volunteer leaders and staff members for your hard work. I look forward to working with all of you as we prepare for another year of achievements that build success for every brother, entity, region and ultimately across one-SLB.
We begin the fiscal year and academic year under new leadership at the SLB Executive Office. Bro. Ricardo Cortez is the new Exectuive Director. He brings innovation, deep fraternal knowledge and a strong commitment to serving our members and mission. For the next few months the EO, EBOD, and RDC will continue to build a stronger fraternal infrastructure to support of the new EBOD and RDC terms which start in 2015. To make sure we start off this year synchronized and increase awareness we will provide a BETACON recap and start of term message that will be distributed shortly.
Together we can seize the opportunities that come with each academic year and take pride in the fact that our family continues to grow and thrive as the very best Latino-based Multicultural Greek organization across the country.
