University of New Orleans Student to Speak at UNO
Omaha - A student from the University of New Orleans will discuss what life on her campus is like post Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in a series of events set for April 13-14 at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
Chevita Phifer will be the keynote speaker at the UNO's annual Greek Week Banquet Friday, April 14. The event will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom.
The UNO Greek Week Planning Committee has adopted the "UNO to UNO Hurricane Relief Project" as its philanthropy during Greek Week 2006, which is under way through April 14. In the fall of 2005, UNO students, faculty and staff launched the "UNO to UNO Hurricane Relief Project," a sustained fund-raising effort aimed at providing relief to their colleagues at the University of New Orleans.
Funds raised by the Nebraska UNO during the course of the year have been earmarked for a recovery fund established by Tim Ryan, chancellor of the Louisiana UNO, for members of his university community who lost everything.
Throughout Greek Week, students will be selling raffle tickets and "UNO to UNO" bracelets, as well as hosting a silent auction.
Phifer will be honored at a reception Thursday, April 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Student Organizations and Leadership Programs Office. All interested UNO faculty, staff and students are invited to attend.
The 2006 Greek Week Banquet is the culmination of a week of competitive events in the Greek community.
