This past semester was filled with great things for our chapter!

We kicked off the semester with the creation of our Facebook page.  Be sure to check it out!

In February, we held a fundraiser called Hearts for Hope.  We sold Valentine’s Day candy grams and donated the proceeds to our national philanthropy, Project Hope.

Intramural soccer also began, and we even made it to the first round of play offs!  Go Killer Lambs!

For Valentine’s Day, we also held a cookie decorating night and hung out with a bunch of PNMs.  It was a great turn out and we had a lot of fun.

We also had sisters participate in Master the Met, an event hosted by the American Lung Association.  It involves racing up 42 flights of stairs in honor of those fighting lung disease.

One of our sisters also was greatly touched by the story of Ezra Matthews and his fight against Neuroblastoma.  In honor of him, we held a puppy chow sale to raise awareness and donated the proceeds to Because of Ezra.

In March, we started Tab to the Top, a contest between the fraternities and faculty on campus to raise soda pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Charity.  We were able to collect a 75.9 pounds of tabs, which is about 91,080 tab tops!

On March 15, we had our annual spring recruitment event, and it was a blast!  We were able to speak with many PNMs about our fraternity.  We even  had an amazing photo wall for girls to take pictures in front of.  Check it out!

On April 2, we held our second annual Hoops for Hope!  It included fun team events like Knockout, Hula Hoop Relay, Free Throw Contest, and Hula Hoop skill contest. Proceeds from this event went towards Project Hope, of course!

The second week of April was Greek Week, and we had a lot of fun collaborating with the other fraternities on campus.  We were able to team up with Kappa Epsilon for a Bake Sale benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  It was a great week of Greek unity.

During Greek Week was Outreach and Advocacy Day, and all of STLCOP was able to participate.  We had a few of our sisters go to St. Mary’s Hospital. They counseled patients on blood pressure, proper medication disposal, brown bag medications, and hidden dietary salts. One of our chapter’s advisors, Dr. Shin-Yu Lee, PharmD. (far right) helped coordinate the event.

That same morning, some of our sisters participated in the Color Run!  Although it rained, they still had a ton of fun running through the color.  Some of the proceeds from the run benefited the St. Louis Chapter of Autism Speaks.
