SAE at UCLA Helping at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center

I love these stories. What a great thing for all members of the Greek community to do! SAE at UCLA stopped by the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and saw Lexi, a 12 year old girl who is battling heart disease and cancer. The brothers of the chapter saw her sign asking for pizza, so they brought over flowers and started singing to her. It’s the little things in life that go so far. Check out the video of the SAE brothers singing to Lexi here: Video

Alpha Tau Omega at Iowa State Talking About Sexual Assault Intervention

We should be having more conversations like this on college campuses across North America. According to this article, every AROTC cadet goes through a two day training course called MVP training that walks them through various scenarios to be proactive in preventing sexual assaults. They are using the leaders are campus to educate and then train other students. It’s really a perfect match, which is why I believe that Fraternities and Sororities are the best people on campus to effectively reach the student body and set the right expectations for a safe community. I’m glad to see Alpha Tau Omega at Iowa State getting involved in this important issue for all Universities.
