As the pink-and-green letters stood tall, students, faculty and family waited for the unveiling of the newest members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.

In recent years the chapter’s enrollment has been low, but this year began with an increase of six additional members. In the fall, the chapter will consist of 10 active members.

President of AKA, Shayla Owens, biology sophomore, says growth is definitely something the members want to focus on.

“We hope that with us getting bigger that we’ll attract other NPHC’s to come back and want to be apart of MSU. At one time it was a great  school to be at even though it didn’t have all nine, it still had a good variety of fraternities and sororities. We do want to help them come back and say ‘hey MSU is ready to change and ready for the changing times.’ We are ready to have fun again.”

The newest members showcased stepping, dancing and also recited history about the sorority.

Greeks from Texas Woman’s, Texas Christian and Cameron University were in attendance for the probate and also represented their fraternities and sororities.

The AKA’s not only entertained the audience with their presentation of their newest members, but also sent a message to the MSU community that they are back and stronger than ever.
