As the annual Spring Jam week approaches, the brothers of the Alpha Delta Phi, Minnesota Chapter are busy preparing for one of the University of Minnesota’s most highly anticipated events. Spring Jam brings together groups and organizations from all over the University to celebrate music, competition, philanthropy, warm weather, and the end of another school year.
The event will occur April 20 through April 24, 2010. The overall theme of the week this year is “Into the Wild.” Alpha Delta Phi will be pairing up with other Greek houses Sigma Nu, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Alpha Gamma Delta, as a part of the “Born to Be Wild” team. The team will take part in the many competitions that will be occurring during the week.
Among the many other events happening during the week, the team will be participating in the Greek Competition Kick-Off on Tuesday, the Greek Kickball Tournament on Wednesday, a community-wide service project in the Como area on Thursday, the Ballyhoo Competition on Friday, and a Battle of the Bands on Saturday. The brothers will be hosting their own philanthropy event as well on Saturday to raise money for Feed My Starving Children. The event will include food and a dunk tank
All of the money raised at this event will be donated to the non-profit organization that provides meals for poverty stricken children across the globe. The week will be concluded with a performance by national act Gym Class Heroes on Saturday night. The brothers have been hard at work preparing for the week, and certainly look forward to another great Spring Jam!
