With so much violence going on in the state of Illinois, students of Northern Illinois University came together to show that we (the human race), can come together as one and enjoy a fun filled event. Sunday was a historical time for those that were entering and returning to the college campus of NIU. Many organizations of the campus introduced themselves to hundreds of students that were eager to see what these groups were about. From choir orgs to dance and social groups to Greeks, each organization stood out in their own way. As each org represented proudly, the DJ kept the crowd going by playing recent tracks on the 1's and 2's. Also, while the music played, bbq and refreshments were prepared for those whose came to enjoy the event. Although, so much was being presented to the campus of NIU, this was just the tip of the iceberg. After the introduction of the organization....It was time for the show to begin!
As the crowd created a huge circle, Greek members of the Divine 9 (NPHC), put on a yard show as a teaser for what many people will see throughout the school year. As each fraternity and sorority took their turn at performing on the yard (School campus), students shouted aloud for the greek that gave them a big first impression. After the yard show, their was a huge surprise to the campus.
The sound stomping boots was amongst everyone. The new addition of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated came stomping aloud to the circle to put on their own probate show. Five young strong minded gentlemen shocked the onlooking crowd as they shouted, stomped, strolled and revealed to everyone who they were. As each new member revealed themselves, the sound of clapping and screaming covered the venue of the probate. Family and friends rushed the center of the circle to show how proud they were of these five gentlemen's' accomplishment. This probate was shocking, entertaining and history making.
This Sunday was eye opening. It was fun filled and safe. This shows that many people from different regions of the world can come together and have a great time with one another without violence occurring. So, here is a GowhereHipHop shout out to all the students, and organizations that had a blast and kept the peace on Sunday at NIU. And, lastly I would like to give a shout out and huge congratz to the new addition of the "Hollywood EG" Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. BLU-PHI !!!
