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.

Why Can’t We See Solutions in Plain Sight?

Our chapters and organizations do amazing work in our communities, but we also have our share of problems. Why can’t we see solutions in plain sight? Sometimes the problem is also the answer! When we look at issues on college campuses like alcohol abuse or sexual assaults, our Greek organizations are stacked with leaders on campus that can help to educate others on campus. Peer to peer education works! Let’s talk about educating our Greek members and giving them the tools they need to teach others.

Alpha Tau Omega at Grand Valley Walks 160 Miles for Multiple Sclerosis

Congratulations to the men of ATO at Grand Valley State University! According to this article, over the past four years, they’ve raised over $100,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year the brotherhood pulled in $38,000. While it’s a painful journey and not all the brothers complete all 160 miles, it’s a reminder of what those affected by the disease deal with every day, and this event finds others on campus that want to get involved. Nicely done! Alpha Tau Omega at Grand Valley walks 160 miles for multiple sclerosis: #ATO: https://t.co/Oz59VkLAeh — Michael Ayalon (@GreekUniversity) March 12, 2016
