Since its chartering in , Kappa Xi Chapter has set an extraordinarily high standard for fraternal activity in Clark County. The Brothers of the Kappa Xi Chapter take seriously the life of Omega men and work diligently to uphold the ideals our beloved Founders set forth, ever remembering that we must make Omega worth something to itself, and then use our abilities to improve mankind. Throughout this time the Chapter has undertaken and achieved the high standards set forth by our beloved Founders.

Graduate of Edinburgh Even though Sigma chapter pledged to keep the sacred light of Omega Psi Phi burning brightly beneath the cold clear light of Canadian stars, the chapter went inactive and was moved to Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan. As a natural progression, brothers sprinkled across the globe eventually saw the need to organize themselves into chapters and sought recognition from the International body of the Fraternity.

The pledges were asked nonsensical and personal questions, including about their sexual history and preferences and told to drink after each answer by active fraternity members and women invited to participate in “Mom and Dad’s Night,” a non-sanctioned initiation event.
William Duncan Saunders, 15, died of a skull fracture and ruptured aorta when he was roughly flung from a bed during an incident variously described as horseplay unrelated to hazing and hazing. He was a member of Alpha Delta Phi fraternity, but his chapter was not implicated in his demise. Here is a clipping at the time: Walke , 16, blamed his suicide by gunshot over a depression that enveloped him due to New salem School hazing.
Utah finally outlawed the practice after his death, according to the Ogden Standard-Examiner January 10, The death was blamed by his mother on hazing, but cited as illness-related by university then-administrators who nonetheless strongly condemned all acts of hazing. His mother became the first known parent of a hazing victim to become an activist.

Pinterest By Michael Harriot years ago today, on November 17th, three men and their graduate advisor gathered in a room in Thirkield Hall on the campus of Howard University. I could talk about the famous members from Michael Jordan to Jesse Jackson. If you are Black, and a Negus who reads, you probably know a Que Dawg. If you know anything about the black college experience, fraternities and sororities, or Black culture in general, you most likely know at least a little about the Que Dawgs.
Many of you already know if one of your close friends is a member of Omega Psi Phi. But what if you are white yes, White people visit this site too. In those rare cases, NegusWhoRead is here to help you determine if your friend, coworker or the love of your life is a Que Dawg. If an entire section of his closet is devoted to purple and gold t-shirts, he might be a Que Dawg. If he has never served in a branch of the armed forces, but owns more camouflage and fatigues than a member of Seal Team 6, he might be a Que Dawg.
Oh, my team lost, someone broke into my car and stole my wallet and I think I twisted my ankle. He is da bruhs. Would you like to attend our event? I just met him.

Although every human being is unique, there are distinct characteristics that many members of sororities or fraternities share among the members of their respective organizations. While no group of people is a monolith, and we do not wish to stereotype the hundreds of thousands of women in these organizations, we thought we would give you a primer on how to distinguish your friends who pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha from those who are sisters of Delta Sigma Theta.
AKAs always remind you that they were first. Deltas always remind you that most great creations had a first draft.

You talkin’ ’bout fiction? Hold up; pardon my back. This is National Hazing Prevention Week, and my hope is that this week there will be some serious and informed dialogue within and outside BGLOs about hazing. I am, however, not optimistic. Over the past ten months, commentators, critics, and concerned citizens have wondered and opined about why hazing persists within student culture. Many have focused — if not more, without question differently — on black student groups vis-a-vis their white counterparts, with physical violence seen as the main issue for the former and substance abuse the latter.
Hazing culture within these groups has been robust for decades, so much so that it has inspired movies e. The media and the legal system paid little attention to hazing within these groups until the s. From then until now, BGLOs have experienced the injury and death of numerous, aspiring members. For example, in , after being beaten and forced to do calisthenics, Robert Brazile died pledging at the University of Pennsylvania.
A year later, in , Nathanial Swinson died at North Carolina Central University after being forced to perform a battery of grueling exercises. In , Vann Watts was beaten until bruised and died from alcohol poisoning while a student at Tennessee State University. Each of these young men had sought membership in Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

SHARE Although studying creativity is considered a legitimate scientific discipline nowadays, it is still a very young one. In the early s, a psychologist named J. Guilford was one of the first academic researchers who dared to conduct a study of creativity. He challenged research subjects to connect all nine dots using just four straight lines without lifting their pencils from the page. Today many people are familiar with this puzzle and its solution.
In the s, however, very few were even aware of its existence, even though it had been around for almost a century. If you have tried solving this puzzle, you can confirm that your first attempts usually involve sketching lines inside the imaginary square. The correct solution, however, requires you to draw lines that extend beyond the area defined by the dots. Only 20 percent managed to break out of the illusory confinement and continue their lines in the white space surrounding the dots.
The symmetry, the beautiful simplicity of the solution, and the fact that 80 percent of the participants were effectively blinded by the boundaries of the square led Guilford and the readers of his books to leap to the sweeping conclusion that creativity requires you to go outside the box. The idea went viral via s-era media and word of mouth, of course.
