The sisters of Omega Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.’s Columbia Colony collaborated with the sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda and the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta in throwing their The Melting Pot event. Columbia University is a diverse community but sometimes it doesn’t feel that way; this event brought together students from different races and ethnicities to find commonalities.
The night started off with a game of bingo that incorporated culture and socializing. Each participant was given a bingo board where boxes were filled with misconceptions about one’s identity and culture such as ‘People ask “So, what are you?”‘, “Joining groups on campus keeps me connected to my roots”, and “I am a first generation student.” The goal was not only to meet people but to meet people who related to the statements.
After a fun game, the participants got down to business and discussed the stereotypes and misconceptions in terms of cliques, formed by race or interests, at Columbia University and at other college campuses. Students shared their experiences and came up with ideas on how to improve diversity.
At the end of the night, everyone was able to relate to one another despite different cultures, schools, and social groups. Great job to Omega Phi Beta for the event!
The brothers of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity, Inc.’s Epsilon Delta Chapter kicked off the new semester with a bang with their first annual Epic Showcase. Epic Showcase was an event dedicated to the diversity of the performing arts and the diversity of cultures around the world.
Hosted in the grand Roone Auditorium, the night was filled with music, poetry, dance, and spoken word featuring several talented groups from Columbia University such as CU TAAL, the Venom Step Team, and Chinese Yoyo. The brothers also reached outside the Columbia community by bringing SciryL Cooper and David TheWerdsman Lewis. The brothers also threw in a few acts of their own from starting the night off with their signature stroll to Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” to bringing back Columbia College ’11 alumnus and Spring ’08 brother, Amin Fernandez, to tell stories through spoken poetry.
Not only was this night an incredible night of performances but also a great gathering for the Multicultural Greek Council community as the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta, the sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda, the sisters of Lambda Pi Chi, and the sisters of Sigma Lambda Gamma were there to show their support.
Congratulations to the brothers of Sigma Lambda Beta for a successful event!
