Delta Week 2012 brings fun, awareness


Delta Sigma Theta hosted a carnival in front of the TMB last Thursday, where students enjoyed free food, snow cones, a DJ and games such as musical chairs.

The event was one of many activities presented for the 2012 Delta Week. This year's theme was Soul Circus Divas, and each day was dedicated to enlightening students about current events. From information about the upcoming presidential election to military awareness, nothing was out of reach.

"This whole week has gone better than we ever hoped for. It's gone beyond our wildest dreams," says Ninma Sheshi, a graduate of the Kappa Beta Chapter.

Monday was dedicated to giving monetary advice. A financial forum provided tips on finance and budgeting.

The Mr. Debonair pageant took place on Tuesday, in which the Delta Sigma Thetas sought to emphasize strong men on the JSU campus. They also enlisted the help of massage therapists to pamper girls with free massages.

Wednesday focused on the upcoming election, and members registered students to vote and informed students on all candidates.

 A powder puff football game played out Friday. The sorority partnered with various middle schools to do community service projects on Saturday. These included writing letters to current active members in the military.

Delta Sigma Theta was founded in 1913, and sought to be a public service organization that confronted the challenges of African Americans and all Americans in general. The group was chartered at JSU in 1973, and was the first predominantly African American sorority at JSU.

The many activities of Delta Week were inspired by the sorority's Five-Point Program Thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health and Political Awareness and Involvement.
