STUDENT ORGANIZATION NEWS
The Mu Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority served as host (along with chapters from LeMoyne-Owen College, University of Memphis, and Rhodes College) of a southeastern regional Round Up of the national sorority in Memphis. Hundreds of undergraduate members met to discuss the future of the nation's first Black Greek-lettered organization founded by African American women, and what they could do to solidify its growth and maximize its programs and service to the community. More than $530 was collected and donated to the American Heart Association. Additionally, each undergraduate host chapter donated floral arrangements to local hospitals in the Memphis community. Kimberly Neal, Shanta Wilson, and Ashley Drane represented Mu Epsilon at this event.
