The Chi Chapter Of Phi Beta Sigma Celebrates 90 Years Of Brotherhood And Service

On Saturday, March 27th at 7:13 p.m. outside of the leadership center at Morehouse College, seven new members of Phi Beta Sigma Chi chapter mostly known as Nasty Chi chapter celebrated their 90th year with the seven men crossing over as official Sigma men. As the crowd began to roll in supporters of all ages bringing balloons of the number that they are supporting in the line. Different sororities came out to support such as the Delta Sigma Thetas, Sigma Gamma Rho, and their sister sorority Zeta Phi Beta. The older members of Phi Beta Sigma had a heavy presence as they came to support their new Sigma brothers and support their number that they once were during their probate. Even people and other Sigma's from Georgia State University and other colleges came to watch and support. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students. The Founders, A. Langston Taylor, Leonard F. Morse, and Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service.

The crowd was getting hyped up as the DJ played all the popular hip hop/trap songs, as the crowd dabbed and milly rocked while we waited for the new sigmas to arrive. Later as the crowd has gotten bigger, comes seven men with ski-masked used to hide their identity until the big reveal to the crowd. All seven members came from Morehouse closely together in a line to the center of the crowd. The crowd was electrified as all seven had performed the origins and information about the fraternity, as each person would step out of line and grind on the ground slowly and fast as they hold up their chapter nickname "Nasty," as it had all the women in the crowd riled up with their grinding. It was also amazing atmosphere watching the crowd go wild for the person they were supporting and just hyping up the whole line as they stepped. They had even had steps copying the sororities most known steps to show appreciation as well as saying each sororities history. They even sang "Lift Every Voice" in a chorus setup as they sang loud and proud with their fist in the air.

The time of the big reveal for each member was amazing to see the new members consisting of six sophomores and one junior, being unveiled to the crowd to show off their hard work of being a line for Spring 2016. Every person in line came out energetic and the performance was very exciting as the crowd cheered and danced too. As the probate began to close the old and new sigma' came together to step, as we could see the brotherhood and history come alive with these men as they smiled and stepped. The crowd started to disperse as the families greeted their son, nephew, cousin or friend to give congratulations for becoming a part of Phi Beta Sigma and the celebration of 90 years. It was a wonderful experience and ready to witness the next probate coming this Spring.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
