AKAs step out 95 strong

Thunder hit the floor as 95 ladies of pastel pink and green made their presence known. Their 4-inch black boots greeted the floor with heavy stomps as they stepped their way into the fall 2005 Alpha Theta chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.

The theme of pink and green completely flourished the scene in the Men’s Gymnasium on Oct. 19 in tribute to the new AKA sisterhood. And to get the event jumping a DJ was invited to hype up the crowd as the new AKAs got ready.

Their first appearance was an expression of togetherness as they walked out holding hands.

Larry Kerlegan, a sophomore, said, “I like how they came out holding hands. That was real sisterhood”.

The Probate also brought along nearly 300 people and then some. People from all organizations came to support a friend or relative that night, from roommates to mothers. Members of Delta Sigma Theta, Omega Psi Phi, Zeta Phi Beta, and Kappa Alpha Psi all came to support a friend or family member.

In the heat of the excitement AKA new members were asked how they felt.

New AKA members comment ed on their accomplishment and appreciation for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.

Charisma Sweat, a Junior, stated that “Joining the AKA Sorority has been the best decision that I have made in my life.”

Destiny Miller, a Sophomore, stated “Its good to be able to join a sisterhood that can never be broken and even though it was 95 of us I love all of them.”

Jennifer White, a Sophomore, stated, “Praise his name for this wonderful sorority and the chance to be a part of it. We’re Alpha Theta and there is none greater.”

“I made it. The timing was now for me and I thank God for it,” said Sophomore Daniel Rideout.

In agreement Jasmine Gunion commented “I am honored to be a sophisticated lady of the AKA Sorority.” She ended by saying skee wee my sorors skee wee.

Sophomore Jenifer Sykes commented “Its finally here. AKA for life.”

After the ladies blew out insinuation people headed to the campus to salute the AKAs as they held hands and sang their alma mater. Followed by a meet and greet from their loved ones.

Many students felt that the probate was a success and that the step show was still entertaining even though the young ladies only had three days to prepare for it. This has been the first AKA line since trhe fall of 03 due to certain circumstances that AKA members are not at liberty to discuss.
