Two Colors One Struggle - LIB100/201 Approved!

Date and Time

8:30 PM - 10:00 PM


  • Mackinac Hall » B1138 - Classroom


At Grand Valley State University’s campus we see a lack of diversity. Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has taken the initiative into diversifying the GVSU community. Many of the individuals in this fraternity have either gone or are going through struggles which are caused by where they come from, how they look, how they speak, etc. The purpose of this event is not to anger or blame anyone, but to show that it does not matter where someone comes from. All that matters is how much they are willing to work to be the best they can be and ultimately empower other individuals with similar struggles. Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has collaborated with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity, Inc. to spread the strength to other individuals and to open the eyes of those who have not had to struggle. Each fraternity has invited one speaker who will share their life story. Our speakers will touch on the topics of barriers, life setbacks, etc. which will help create a better understanding of how others have to live. The speakers are also encouraged to describe how they see themselves helping their respective communities, as well as how they see their past communities and life struggles today
