Psi Upsilon, through its annual Psi U Think You Can Dance event, raised approximately $14,000— a final total still being calculated. The event was a dance competition between Pepperdine’s Fraternities and Sororities, along with invited dance groups.

The event was a dual philanthropy event and dance competition between Pepperdine’s Fraternity and Sorority life organizations. Kappa Alpha Theta won the philanthropy division, while Delta Delta Delta and Alpha Theta Omega won the dance competition.

“If you come out and represent your organization, everybody on campus comes out,” junior Myles Dennis said. “But the whole point is they raise funds so we can conquer paralysis, because that’s the main thing behind it.”

The event raised funds for the Conquer Paralysis Now foundation. The event has raised $14,000 so far, and the total is still to be calculated, member of Psi Upsilon Moises Vargas wrote in a March 23 email to the Graphic.
