During 1954 two more greek organizations
were added: Alpha Phi sorority and Theta
Chi fraternity. These were the last two
greek organizations to come onto campus
until ten years later.
One of the highlights for Alpha Phi mem-
bers in the fall was their being chosen by
their nationals to be AIDS educators. They
were trained along with the men of Kappa
Sigma to help educate the community and
other organizations on campus about AIDS.
The Alpha Phis were also given a Merito-
rious Service award from Golden Key Na-
tional Honor Society for their participation
in the "Best of America: Just Say No to
Drugs" program. The ladies gave seminars
to high school students about drug and alco-
hol awareness and participated in the Drug
Free football game.
The Alpha Phis philanthropy was Heart
Projects. In 1989-90 they helped to pay the
medical bills of a little boy named "Rusty",
who had cancer. Alpha Phi International
Fraternity was also recognized for donating

The Theta Chis started their year with
their annual luau. This year they invited the

and OX Roast. The softball game was sanc-

from all over Texas, Louisiana and Oklaho-
ma. The OX Roast used to be held after the
championship game but had since been
changed to a date following the game. This
year's Ox Roast was held at the Park'n Go
Lot in Denton and the entertainment was
provided by Somebody Scream. Proceeds
from this year's roast went toward an alco-
hol awareness program. The Theta Chis also
hoped to sponsor a speaker to come to cam-
pus to speak on Alcohol awareness.
In the fall the Theta Chis were recognized
as the fraternity who donated the most
blood to Wadley Blood Bank.
"We hosted the regional convention for
Theta Chi in the spring," said Taylor. "At
this national member's come down and give
seminars teaching the fraternity members
how to deal with interfraternity problems.
