Delta Sigma Theta plans week of events

The spring is here yet again and the Divas of the Nu Delta Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. have a unique week planned. Beginning Sunday, April 3, through Thursday, April 7, the DST Sorority Inc. will be hosting their annual Delta Week.

The week is full of events each day in which students can come out and participate. Sunday evening kicks off the festivities as the ladies of DST host “DST Celebration of Gospel” at 6:13 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom. This event is similar to the BET series, “Sunday’s Best.” Contestants will have two rounds to impress judges with their singing of selected gospel songs.

Monday the ladies have an international theme lined up as they host “Wanted: A Man of Crimson and Crème Mr. Delta Sigma Theta Pageant,” in the University Lab School Gymnasium at 7:13 p.m. This event is a male pageant where six contestants will compete for the crown in swimsuit, talent and formal wear to claim the crown of Mr. Crimson and Crème.

Tuesday marks the third event of the week as the ladies host “Armed Robbery: Stealing Your Future.” This is being held at 7:13 p.m. in Student Union room 223. This event is an economic development program where presenters will come out and speak about their journeys from rags to riches. Fallon O’Neal from the State Capital will also give tips on money management.

Wednesday the ladies will get everyone involved as they host a unisex event, “Law and Order: DST.” This is also being held at 7:13 p.m. in Student Union room 223. The ladies will be in conjunction with the Kappa Nu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha as they present different scenarios to participants to reach a verdict on.

“This is basically a game, boys versus girls. We will have a court room setting with a judge, a jury and a verdict that will be reached on the scenario presented,” said Kendra Temple member of Delta Sigma Theta.

An after party follows this event from 10:13 p.m. to 2 a.m. in the Student Union Ballroom with a $3 admission for Greeks and $5 for students with college identification.

Finally Thursday marks the week’s end as the ladies finish with “The Getaway” at 5:13 p.m. in the yard area in front of the Pennington Activity Center. This event is a gathering with  free food, a DJ and games available for students to come out and have fun.

Delta Sigma Theta encourages all students to participate in Delta Week.

“We just want students to gain knowledge of current issues, become more economically aware and have a great time with the Devastating Divas,” said Temple.
