This year the Alpha Beta Chapter decided to think outside the box and go with a themed informational. The Chapter decided that it wanted to make the informational not only informative but fun for all who attended. The Chapter wanted to fill the hearts of each and every interest with the holiday spirit. Our informational date was set for December 2, 2018, just in time for the holidays. We thought this was the perfect time to decorate the informational with a festive holiday theme.


The Chapter started its informational giving our guests a chance to grab snacks and hot cocoa.  Introductions were given from our advisor, and each Alpha Beta member was given the opportunity to introduce themselves and how they serve the chapter.  The Chapter then engaged in an ice breaker called “IntRHOduce Your Neighbor.” Our guests were able to socialize for about 3-5 minutes to get to know the person next to them. After time was called all attendees and chapter members had the opportunity to introduce the person to the left of them. This not only let us get to know those in attendance but allowed them get to know each other, as well.


After the ice breaker we got right down to business. The Anti-Basileus created a PowerPoint including information about our chapter and the Sorority as a whole. Each member of our chapter shared stories on why we chose Sigma and how it has changed and enlightened us as individuals.  


The Chapter then concluded the PowerPoint and socialized with each our guests. As we were socializing, everyone was given the opportunity to be able to decorate their own christmas cookies. We provided blue and gold icing and enjoyed the delicious treats at the end of our informational.


Something that the Alpha Beta Chapter tries to uphold, is to make people feel welcomed. We wanted everyone who attended our informational to feel comfortable.  A holiday themed informational brought nothing but holiday cheer to all that attended. During this holiday, we are encouraged to be joyful, charitable, generous, and kind. We wanted our informational to exhibit these characteristics.  The holiday spirit invoked positive energy, good vibes, and happiness and it is our desire that it will be exploited throughout all levels of our lives.
