On behalf of the Black Alumni Chapter, I would like to extend an invitation to members of the Association of Black Faculty and Staff to attend the Alumni Weekend Step Off...

Mason Black Alumni Chapter President

Have you heard that Mason's Alumni Weekend is scheduled for October 1-3, 2010?  As a part of this year's activities, the Mason Black Alumni Chapter will be sponsoring an 
Alumni Weekend Step Off on Saturday, October 2 at 6pm (Doors open at 5:30pm) in George Mason University's Harris Theatre. Get ready for a riveting, homecoming demonstration
of "old school" and "new school" moves at the Alumni Weekend Step Off. The theme is "Back to Basics" - minimal technology, maximum stepping and teachable moments.

Hosted by Scott Terry-Cabbler, member of Omega Psi Phi and C. Lynn Dorsey, member of Delta Sigma Theta, the Alumni Weekend Step Off will feature Mason black alumni and 
students representing the National Pan-Hellenic Council of Fraternities and Sororities. Performers will span classes of the 1980's to present day. The friendly competition
will award a trophy to the first place winners for the fraternities and sororities...and of course the winners will take home the Green & Gold PRIDE! 

Who should you look for on stage? 

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
