Attention IFC Chapters, if your chapter did not participate in the Spring 2015 Academy, then you must participate in the Fall 2015 Academy to earn IGI points.

Fusion Stroll 2015
What is Fusion Stroll you might ask?  It’s a cross-chapter stroll competition co-sponsored by the Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center, Fraternity & Sorority Affairs, and La Casa Cultural Latina.  This event is an educational program aimed at providing members in fraternities and sororities who do not traditionally step, stroll or salute, the opportunity to learn about these historic aspects to cultural fraternal organizations.  Moreover, it’s a great opportunity to meet members from chapters thus strengthening the bonds of interfraternal relations.

To participate, your chapter does not need to have any experience in stepping, strolling or saluting.  All you’d need to do is register for the competition. 

This year’s Fusion Stroll competition will be held on Friday, October 16th from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in Lincoln Hall Theatre.  We hope you’ll join us at the informational meeting next Monday!

For more information, please contact Alex Suñé, Assistant Director for Fraternity & Sorority Affairs at sune@illinois.edu
