LIZ ANASTASIADIS, Editor-in-Chief — Two Denison National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations have welcomed new members this semester, despite the conditions of the pandemic.

NPHC is a collaborative umbrella organization composed of historically African American Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities. The nine NPHC organizations are collectively referred to as the “Divine Nine.”

Denison holds five active chapters of the Divine Nine: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.

After the reveal of their new line, “Mystic C.H.A.O.S.” on Friday, Oct. 17 on the Library Steps on A-Quad, the next week there was a celebration for the new initiates at Moon Hall hosted by the Alphas on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. full of music and dancing.
