Dear Uncle Tony: Season 1, Episode 01

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.

From LeAnn:

Food, drink and literary-themed games provided. There is no need to bring anything except your awesomeness. If you would like to bring something, please bring drinks instead of food. (Our dogs can find the slightest bit of dropped bad-for-dogs food and vacuum it up in a nanosecond).

Hope to see many of you there!

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!

Xi Chapter Hosts Forum during Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Campus Conversation on Creating Allies Against Sexual Violence: Creating a Culture of Healthy Masculinities within the Greek Community

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
St. Anthony Hall
207 Pittsboro Street
7:00PM – 9:00PM

St. Anthony Hall is a gender-inclusive literary & visual arts fraternity. We are a group of students, brought together by our love of the arts, who have developed a passion for changing the way our Greek organization addresses issues of sexual assault.

On Wednesday, April 22nd, we hope to open up our unique space to the community (students, faculty, CH/Carrboro community members, etc.) to host a Campus Conversation about how we can all work to address sexual violence in this community.

We will be talking about how members of fraternities can serve as allies, healthy masculinities, LGBTQ identities, and campus resources and support systems. We hope that in opening up a dialogue for differing voices and perspectives, we can move towards finding ways to empower every member in the Carolina community to be proactive in changing the culture of violence on and off campus.

See the Facebook invitation and join the conversation if you can.
