Show Me Your Culture Event
The Brothers of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity,
Incorporated Rho Alpha Chapter hosted a Cultural Awareness event during the
fall semester of 2012. It was partnered with the Torchlight Program, a highly
ranked internship program that teaches students the business side of motion
pictures. It was also partnered with the FSU Film School, which is ranked top ten
in the nation.
The event took place at the SLC (Student Life Center)
Theater at FSU on October 29th, 2012 at 7PM. All councils of Greek life were
invited, which is a total of over 50 social organizations, as well as non-Greek
The event was about 2 and half hours long, showed about 7
short films from the FSU Film School. The director of each film will talked
about their personal cultural background and then introduced their film. At the
end of each film there was a "Q and A" between the audience and directors. Rho
Alpha hosted this event to fulfill our fraternity's cultural awareness pillar.
Like most events, our sponsors helped us fund the event to
educate and better our community. A special thank you to SLB's Education
Foundation. The money that the Education Foundation gave helped us fund the
food, flyers, and other promotional purposes for the event.
The event was a huge success with a total of 18 sponsors
including The Multi Cultural Greek Council and The PanHellenic Association.
