The brothers of the Epsilon

The Brothers of the Epsilon-Omega Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity challenged stereotypes targeting fraternities and excessive alcohol use by holding a dry social event on Feb. 7.

“Mixers and date nights involving the sororities are usually the only social events we have,” said Lanier Henson, vice president of

Kappa Sigma Fraternity.

Kappa Sigma Fraternity invited various members of the Pan-Hellenic Council to participate in this event, which featured a night out at a local restaurant and bar in Midtown.

According to Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s president Karim Minkara, the event was created to “promote awareness for responsible fun.”

Minkara says that fraternities have a bad connotation when it comes to the drinking.

“We don’t just do what we’re expected to do,” said Minkara. “We’re breaking the mold of traditional fraternities.”

Henson says this event was a timely social for Spring Break and the message Kappa Sigma Fraternity would like to promote.

“We’re hinting to be smart and responsible,” Henson said.

Minkara hopes this event can influence others to be more responsible.

“If people see that frats sponsor events like this, they will hopefully say ‘Why can’t we?’” Minkara said.


The president of Epsilon-Omega Chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity is Jesse Crowe.
