Get Psyched for Pi Beta Phi's Arrow Spike Volleyball Tournament

With finals close approaching, I'm sure everyone is in some desperate need of a break from the library. What better way to get a change of scenery and let off a little steam than to spend some time with Pi Beta Phi at our spring philanthropy event, Arrow Spike?!

On Saturday, May 2nd, from 12:00p.m. to 4:00p.m., Pi Beta Phi will be hosting a single elimination volleyball tournament in the North Gymnasium of the University of Minnesota's Recreation and Wellness Center to raise money for the Pi Beta Phi Literacy Fund. The proceeds will be donated in honor of a senior in the Minnesota Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi who recently passed away, Jennifer Houle.

The Pi Beta Phi Literacy Fund sponsors numerous literacy initiatives in hopes of promoting a “lifelong love of reading that can unlock true potential." Becca Blix, Minnesota Alpha's Vice President of Philanthropy, stated, “433,545 lives have been impacted through Read > Lead > Achieve initiatives. The money we are fundraising through Arrow Spike will strengthen that number by fostering a love for reading among many and allowing for a literate and diverse nation."

If you are interested in participating in Arrow Spike on May 2nd, you can submit teams of 6 to 10 players, at the cost of $50 per team, to Becca Blix at Also, feel free to contact Becca with any questions you may have!

Take a break from your studies, and help promote literacy by taking part in Arrow Spike! We hope to see you there!

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
