Hey there! Welcome to the very first episode of Dear Uncle Tony, the literary, arts, and storytelling podcast of the Xi chapter of St. Anthony Hall. Our goal with this podcast is to bring Xi brethren closer together by collecting and spreading our work to St. A’s all over the world. We’re going to have a little bit of everything: original music, poetry, and essays; Hall stories both new and old; and interviews with Xi alumni. Also, this is a podcast for adults, so be prepared for some saucy, salacious, or irreverent language.
The Barrett/John Award, named for Bro. Jonathan Barrett Ξ’97 and Sis. Betsy John Ξ’99, is given by the St. Anthony Association of North Carolina to an active member presenting a revised piece of work (be it written or visual in nature). In return for their hard work, SAANC provides the recipient with a paid registration to the GC.
We are pleased to present this year’s selection for your reading pleasure. (more…)

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Community Involvement at UNC-Chapel Hill has selected Charlotte Parrott X’11 as an Outstanding Senior.
Aaron Bachenheimer, current director of OFSLCI, says this about the recognition:
For the last few years, our staff in the office has selected 2-3 seniors from each council to recognize at the Chapter Excellence Awards for their outstanding contributions to the Greek community and Carolina campus at large. There is not any hard criteria, we simply brainstorm, “who is graduating that really embodies what we hope all students can make of and get out of the Greek experience at Carolina”.
Parrott, a graduate of Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC, is an English Literature major and a singer/songwriter who performs regularly around the Triangle. She has held several leadership positions during her time as member of the active Xi Chapter. Congratulations and snaps all around to Charlotte!
