Some of SEMO’s fraternities and sororities have resurfaced with new events, goals, and opportunities.

On Wednesday, March 20th, SEMO’s National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC organization made a comeback with a Greek Hump Day event at Kent Library.

The NPHC is a joint council composed of African American fraternities and sororities that specialize in community service and civic engagement while growing within their shared university.

The organizations that participated were Alpha Phi Alpha, Zeta Phi Beta, Sigma Gamma Rho, Phi Beta Sigma and Kappa Alpha Psi.

Graduate student and an administrative member of Sigma Gamma Rho Aja Richardson works to bring focus to administrative goals and organization efforts.

“We definitely want to not only expand our outreach to more students on campus but shine a light on our upcoming events too. We’re working really hard to try and get more students of all backgrounds interested.”

The NPHC Greeks on campus embarked on their return with a Hump Day, a traditional strolling event where the organizations are able to come together as one community.

Students were able to congregate, connect, experience many performances and even participate in dances themselves alongside the campus groups with music and festivities.

Many students were able to gather and socialize with friends for the first time since returning from spring break.
