Alpha Xi Delta to host annual Xi Man competition Thursday

By Sydney Bowen

The sisters of Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Kappa chapter at Kansas State University, will hold their annual Xi Man competition, Thursday at Weber Hall on the K-State campus.

The competition consists of a formal introduction along with a talent show. Help us support our philanthropy, Autism Speaks, by joining us on Thursday for an evening of fun while we cheer for the handsome and talented men from each of the fraternity houses, including:

Alpha Gamma Rho, FIJI, Sigma Nu, FarmHouse, Sigma Chi, Theta Xi, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Delta Chi, Delta Sigma Phi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Phi Delta Theta and Delta Upsilon.                                       

Donations of stuffed animals and children's books are being accepted at the Alpha Xi Delta sorority house, 601 Fairchild Terrace, beginning Tuesday. The sorority is also hosting a Penny Wars competition in collaboration with the Xi Man competition from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday. All K-State students are welcome to help out the fraternity of their choice by putting pennies in their jars – or even silver in other jars for negative points!.
