St. Jude All-Night Competition

Lambda Theta Alpha, along with other campus organizations, is very passionate to build upon our efforts to contribute to our organization's philanthropy, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Last year we are proud to have raised $30,691.02 among our LTA chapters across the nation, but are reaching out to the Lehigh community to help break this record yet again. The mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. We're excited to host the St. Jude All-Night Competition at Lehigh University Thursday, October 17th at 10pm, but need your help to make it as big and successful as possible and truly a campus-wide unifying effort to bring joy to the brave patients and families of St. Judes.

The St. Jude All-Night Competition at Lehigh University is a student-led philanthropic program in which student organizations raise funds for and awareness of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The competition hopes to create unity across campus, raise funds for the children and families of St.Judes, and educates participants about what we can all contribute for children in our communities.  In the spirit of competition, participating teams will earn points by completing an outdoor scavenger hunt and indoor tournament.

Please consider a $10 donation, but any amount helps and even sharing this email with your chapter members and friends to ask for their support as well also makes a difference. If your chapter would like to make a donation, please consider a generous contribution. Don't forget to come out to the competition Thursday, Oct. 17 at 10PM to support the cause and our teams! We'll be collecting donations throughout the event.

More Than Just a House... by Alpha Phi, Epsilon Psi chapter members

Epsilon Psi Chapter, Lehigh University
More than Just a House…

Being part of Greek life at Lehigh University typically generates many different questions from those unaffiliated or students looking to become affiliated. What house are you in and what house do you live in, are some of the most frequent questions received by members of Greek life. The Epsilon Psi chapter of Alpha Phi is constantly striving to better both the Bethlehem and Lehigh community. In order to foster unity among the other chapters represented on campus and within ourselves, Alpha Phi is moving to define ourselves as a chapter rather than a house. As a group with over 90 members we represent much more than just a house. We are not merely defined by the building we live in during our semesters at school. Being a member of Alpha Phi entails joining an organization of outstanding women who support one another in lifelong achievement. It is our hope that by redefining ourselves we can encourage others to do the same. A house is merely a building that we will live in for 2 years of our lives, however being a sister of the Epsilon Psi chapter of Alpha Phi is something that will last forever.
