ABAC fraternity promotes diversity among students
By Alfredo Munez
ABAC’s newest fraternity, Lambda Sigma Upsilon, and the sorority interest group L.A.D.I.E.S hosted an educational workshop addressing appropriate business wear with a special presentation by Family and Consumer Science Instructor Lisa Lacy and a runway show.
The workshop, on Tuesday, Feb. 5, demonstrated the proper and improper attire for business formal, business professional, and business casual for men and women. The president of L.A.D.I.E.S explained the group’s mission saying, “The purpose of workshop is to improve professionalism on campus by letting people see what is acceptable according to different situations.”
Guest speaker Lacy gave a detailed presentation on the appropriate clothing to wear in each category based on style, color, and accessories. “The best advice to dress appropriately is to research what employees wear at the business you’re applying for,” Lacy said, “It is better to overdress than under dress.”
Members from both organizations ended the workshop by presenting how to dress appropriately through a brief runway presentation, in which each suit was examined and critique by Lacy in order to bring awareness and provide an explanation.
The LSU Chapter president Mauricio Soto said, “We try to reach out to a diverse set of groups to figure out what are the problems in the community and on campus. We will continue to reach out to others through workshops and educational programs.”
The Pantheon Chapter of Lambda Sigma Upsilon was established at ABAC on October 28, 2012. Since then, the Pantheon chapter has been dedicated to exceeding in their goals of academic excellence, cultural awareness on campus, and giving back to the Tifton community.
