Giving Back: Philanthropy, Service a Major Part of Greek Life

Missouri Southern is home to two fraternities and two sororities – the Kappa Alpha Order, Kappa Sigma, Alpha Sigma Alpha and Zeta Tau Alpha. Philanthropy and service are at the heart of Greek life at Missouri Southern.

Kappa Alpha Chapter Receives Seven Awards

For the third straight year, the Delta Pi Chapter of the Kappa Alpha Order at Missouri Southern State University was recognized with the Samuel Zenas Ammen Award.

The award is given to the top 10 percent among the 125 chapters and five provisionals. It was among several recognitions the Missouri Southern chapter received during the recent Province Council in Carbondale, Ill.

The chapter received Project Outreach Awards for the amount each member donated to charity ($237 per man) and the average number of philanthropy hours (130, for a total of 3,380). The fraternity also brought home awards for Excellence in Chapter Finances, Excellence in Social Media Communication, Excellence in Fraternal Communication and Excellence in Campus and Community Communication.

Members of Zeta Tau Alpha helped the Joplin Salvation Army prep turkeys to serve to families on Thanksgiving.

Last fall, Hanna Osborne, president of the Greek Council, organized an All-Greek Service Mixer.

Members gathered at Landreth Park to help keep the park beautiful by picking up trash, then enjoyed a cookout.

During the last week of November, members from all four of the campus Greek organizations volunteered as bell ringers for the Salvation Army. As a whole, they raised nearly $1,500.
