This year’s Multicultural Greek Council winner for Sorority of the year was awarded to Theta Alpha Sigma. The Multicultural Greek Council strives to live out five core pillars: academics, leadership, service, social justice and support. Omega Delta Phi was selected for fulfilling all these pillars and going above and beyond.
Kristen Vega, the Greek life and community engagement coordinator who presented the award to the sorority said, “The 2018-2019 Sorority of the Year demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to educating the California State University, Monterey Bay community on issues related domestic violence and sexual assault.”
Alyssia Goodwin President of Theta Alpha Sigma says their main focus is on women’s issues, “That’s mainly what we focus on. We have domestic violence awareness events in October and sexual assault awareness events in April.”
Goodwin says Theta Alpha Sigma has grown a lot in the past few years which has led to the sorority’s amounting success this year. She also says the outreach they have done in the 2018-2019 has been different the previous years which has been better received by the campus.
Goodwin and the Sorority of Theta Alpha Sigma have recently been bringing awareness to an overturned rape case in Italy with their Denim Day event. The sorority dawn denim clothing in support of a rape victim who was disregarded by the court saying her jeans were too tight to be taken off and she would have had to help her assailant remove them.
Theta Alpha Sigma would like to give a special congratulations to their graduating seniors: Alyssia Goodwin, Jennifer Nguyen, Desiraye Kesterson, Jessica Alamo, Madeleine Reede, Bethany Hall, Bianca Salinas and Ariel Amezcua.
