The purpose of the fundraiser was to make enough money to help send two of their members to a national conference for the fraternity.
“Our goal here was to make at least $100,” Jorge Morales, management junior and president of ODPhi said. “Since most of us know how to cook we are able to offer different kinds of food at a cheap price that you usually can’t get on campus.”
The members of the fraternity offered chicken tacos and an assortment of drinks for $1 each. They also provided onions, hot sauce, cilantro and lime for students to add to their tacos.
“This is a pretty good taco,” said Connor Whitten, MIS sophomore. “I saw a guy from my frat walking with one, and thought why not, I have a few dollars to spare and it’s a nice break from Chick-fil-A.”
The fundraiser lasted from 11 a.m. -4 p.m. and gained a lot of attraction in the food court.
Whitten said the fundraiser seemed to be successful. He’d been sitting in the food court for a while and noticed many students stopping by the table.
This fundraiser was also a way for ODPhi to further bond within the MSU community.
Criminal justice junior Michale Gonzales said, “Love it [fundraising] because we get all the guys together and more people get to see us on campus and realize how much we’ve grown.”
