On May 20th, a crowd of about 450 students gathered for “Step Out Against Violence” at Kane Hall. This was a free event that showcased some of the University’s finest talent. There were a total of 8 teams performing, with performances ranging from step, stroll or dance. This year’s winner was Chi Sigma Alpha Sorority, taking home the $500 grand prize. All proceeds of the event go towards the Women of Congo.

This is the third year that this event has taken place, hosted by Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority. The humble beginnings of this event were to spread awareness of domestic violence in the local community through any kind of movement, but grew into something bigger to try to draw in a larger audience to help better spread the cause.
