TIPS Training Session Held at Alpha Epsilon Pi’s 103rd Convention to Promote Alcohol Safety

Michael Ayalon, CEO of Greek University, held a training session on August 10th, 2016 at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa to teach Alpha Epsilon Pi’s fraternity leaders from all over the world how to prevent drunk driving, underage drinking, and alcohol abuse. Student participants from the United States, France, Canada, the UK, and Israel during Epsilon Pi’s 103rd Convention to become certified in the TIPS (Training for Intervention Procedures) program, designed to show students why, when, and how to intervene with their peers to prevent alcohol related problems. TIPS training enhances the people skills of the students to develop a new sense of expertise, confidence, and sense of control over their campus environment. Program participants are trained by certified instructors to detect the signs of intoxication and gain the confidence needed to intervene effectively. Students also learned to identify underage people and people who are already intoxicated. Students on over 1,200 campuses have been trained in this innovative program designed specifically for University students. Since implementing the program, several top Universities have seen a significant reduction in the number of alcohol-related incidents.

Theta Chi Fraternity Brothers Ride Cross Country For Cancer Awareness

After a University of Washington student and Theta Chi brother died of brain cancer in 2006, the brothers of the chapter started the Kyle Charvat Foundation to assist and bring awareness to college-aged cancer patients. According to this article, the nonprofit organization helps to pay for their expenses, medications, physical therapy, and transportation to and from their treatments.  The current president of the chapter clearly sees the connection between the mission of the fraternity and his own role in helping others. The 40 day bike ride will help to raise at least $20,000 towards the Kyle Charvat Foundation. Way to go, and keep up the great work!

UT’s 13 Panhellenic Sororities Raise $40,000 To Build School in Haiti

I loved reading this article today talking about Ginny Carroll’s continued work with Circle of Sisterhood to rally sorority women around the cause of educating women that are facing poverty and oppression. The fact that 13 Panhellenic sororities at the University of Tennessee raised $40,000 in two years to build a school in Haiti is just incredible. Additional tax deductible donations for the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation can be made here: https://www.circleofsisterhood.org/give-now/

University of Michigan Fraternities Raise $60,000 for Autism (video)

Great job by the University of Michigan with 19 fraternities raising $60,000 to go towards GPS devices for autistic children who might wander off. They plan to talk about it at Alpha Sigma Phi in Ann Arbor along with the parents of a Troy boy who died in 2012. Sean Taglione was autistic, and the 12 year old boy wandered from his home and was hit by a car.
