Morrill Chapter Receives Honor From Penn State IFC

Author: Alpha Zeta/Monday, January 24, 2011/Categories: Chapter News

The brothers and sisters at Morrill continue to do great things this year. They have just been honored with a 1st place in their Division (Division 1 being the smallest chapter size) with the Penn State IFC's CORE (Commitment to Outreach and Responsible Education) Program.  The overall mission of this program is to bring fraternities back to the values upon which its Chapters were founded. This was started last spring.

Chapters are divided into three divisions based on their total number of members. The purpose of this division is to level the playing field. Chapters will compete within their divisions for points to be accumulated throughout the semester, and at the end, each division will have one winner. The points are based off of three major categories – Community Service, Philanthropy, and Educational Programming.

Excerpt: Chapter templar of division one-winning fraternity Alpha Zeta Shawn Beam said he and other members never thought about CORE as a contest — instead, they wanted to take advantage of every opportunity to contribute.

"It really helps bring the house together,” Beam (senior-marketing) said. "You spend all your time on your studies. It’s good to take a step back and make a difference in someone else’s life.”
