A Halloween Reminder

Halloween is fast approaching, and it’s time to purchase or make that perfect costume. It’s also important to think about how Alpha Phi will be portrayed in pictures across social media outlets and events across campus. Here is a brief article on how to keep it classy.

In the past, offensive themes and costumes have placed several fraternities and sororities in the media spotlight. This year already several fraternities and sororities have received negative press from such offensive themes or dress.

As you approach mixers/exchanges/socials please reference Alpha Phi's "Party Themes" document. Additionally, Ohio University showcased a campaign against racism and how themes and costumes can offend others.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and there are so many creative and elaborate costumes, decorations and events. The hope is that each chapter and its members have a safe and fun weekend. If you have any questions please feel free to contact your Advisor, Operations & Programming Coordinator or the International Executive Office.

Have a wonderful and safe Halloween season!
