"Talk about educating the masses with such a small number of members. This chapter is ever present in so many major campus events, programs and initiatives, that they have become an icon at Elon.

They are men of character and determination, even in the face of adversity. Although they will be relocating from their home in Loy Center, they have brought to light the realities of NPHC housing and have paved the way for future plans.

They have branched out to Panhellenic sororities to collaborate on programming and partnered with Elon cultural events for support. They logged over 400 hours with just 9 men this academic year alone. Earlier this evening, they secured the Member and New Member Education awards, as well as the Community Service award.
