"To lend to those less fortunate a helping hand"
One of the most rewarding parts of being a Phi Mu is being involved with a group of sisters dedicated to something more than themselves. In fact, the first line of the Phi Mu creed states, "To lend to those less fortunate a helping hand," and we strive to make our philanthropic involvement more than something to put on a website or a slideshow. Not only does our Phi Mu chapter work together for our national philanthropy, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, but we also work in a variety of service projects that appeal to us beyond our Phi Mu calling.
Each year, Alpha Upsilon holds a McNeese Man of the Year Pageant to raise money for the local chapter of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital. Any male that is registered as a full time student at McNeese is eligible to enter and competes in modeling, talent, and on stage question categories. This past year, there were 12 participants ranging from freshmen to seniors and the chapter raised over $3,000 for CMNH.
We are proud to present our
2018 Man of the Year
Mr. Julian Gonzales!
Julian is a Biology/Pre-Med major from Sulphur, LA.
He plays baseball for McNeese and he received the "Teammate of the Year" award his freshman year. He is also a member of the Pre-Med Society.
Fun fact: He can play the saxophone.
"I'm proud to be Phi Mu's Man of the Year because I have the honor to represent and be apart of such a great group of women that make Phi Mu so special."
Alpha Upsilon works hard to be apart of any community philanthropy event we can. It's so important to our chapter to be able to serve our community whenever we have the opportunity to do so. Here are just a few of the many events we volunteered at in 2018!
