Huntsville, Ala. ---- The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) at Alabama A&M University has launched “NPHC Dorm Invasion,” a new on-campus community service initiative that entails NPHC Greeks selecting a dorm and randomly selecting a time to thoroughly clean it, going from room to room and collecting trash for disposal.
The activity allows members to give back to AAMU by contributing to its beautification efforts; fostering a renewed sense of responsibility and community service to all students; and keeping students “on their toes,” comments Dr. Brandon Wolfe of AAMU Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development. Since the very first dorm invasion in October, says Wolfe, students are embracing NPHC’s presence.
“At first, it shocked me,” recalls Chelzea Owens, a sophomore. “Like, what and why are they running up and down the halls, knocking on doors and screaming , “Dorm invasion!”
NPHC is currently composed of nine (9) international Greek-letter sororities and fraternities: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
NPHC promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions. The stated purpose and mission of the organization in 1930 was “unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek-letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to
consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.”
