February 22 -28 - Zeta Week "Break the Cycle"

In observance of Zeta Week, our theme this year was "Break the Cycle", each event was geared towards providing tips and helpful lessons on how to become a better person for tomorrow. We went to a church service hosted by a recent Tech grad that now has his own ministry. On Monday, we let students take a break from campus and come paint ceramics with us to express themselves. On Tuesday, we gave out sweet treats with Black History facts written on them and encouraged our peers to attend the free screening of "Selma" held on campus that evening. Due to the campus closing because of a possible snow day, we had to reschedule the Self Defense Seminar. Thursday, we celebrated our charter day with cake, chocolate, and punch. We also had an informative male panel and touched on various topics. Friday, we encouraged everyone to attend the annual Onyx Ball hosted by the African American Student Union. Saturday, we volunteered at Parklane Elementary with the Nu Mu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
