Material for 5 candidates was submitted to the Corporate Office on February 7, 2000. The Far Western Regional Director, replied to correspondence forwarded by this Advissor as to the status of the proposed MI? scheduled for March 3-5, 2000. On March 1, the Regional Director informed this Advisor that two of the candidates did not answer question 2 on the Affirmation Statement and the revised Membership Interest form had not been signed which requires a signature from those candidates under the age of majority which she stated was 21. The forms must be completed with the appropriate signatures and forwarded to the Corporate Office.

Kappa Xi participated in the NPHC “Break the Ice Week of activities.” The week was to welcome new and returning African American students to campus. The week consisted of a forum, park clean up, feeding the homeless, a mixer and attending a church service. Kappa Xi provided a door prize of educational supplies. Attendees were able to apply for scholarships.
Kappa Xi participated in Student Organization Fairs and Premier UNLV. They also welcomed students back with caramel apple pops.
Due to graduation, Kappa Xi has three active members. They are Soror Ashley Tisdale, Soror SiMone Tyree, and Soror Katrina Dunn. Soror Ranada Coleman was the Basileus of Kappa Xi and her term was to end December 2000. Telephone calls and correspondence was not responded to and she has not attended any of the meetings this semester. As a result, Soror SiMone Tyree is acting Basileus.
The Graduate Advisor is requesting the assistance of the graduate chapter to actively participate and support Kappa Xi and to lend a helping hand wherever necessary. To this aim, their e-mail addresses and addresses will be added so that they are able to feel connected to the sorority and stay informed of the activities taking place. Mentor forms are also available for those interested in serving as mentors now or in the future. A special thanks you to Sorors Billie Rayford, Dawn Barnes, Ethel Archibald, and Quin Rivers for sponsoring the undergraduate’s registration for cluster.
Soror SiMone Tyree is the Cluster representative for Kappa Xi and Soror Ashley Tisdale is the Founder’s Day representative.
Kappa Xi hosted a health workshop, “Sister 2 Sister.” Topics discussed included safe sex, warning signs and red flags for dating, healthy life styles, contraception, monthly breast exams, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and utilizing the health services center on campus. The workshop was presented by a soror who is a Nurse Practitioner on campus. Special thanks to Soror Shawna McNair for attending.
They created a chapter newsletter and website to inform people of the activities they are sponsoring on the campus and in the community. The website address is www.geocities. com/Kappa_Xi
Kappa Xi did not want to have MIP this semester. They felt that they were not prepared and needed to strengthen the chapter prior to bringing in new members. The Graduate Advisor addressed Kappa Xi’s concerns with the Regional Director. Per the Regional Director, MIP will take place this semester as previously scheduled. Kappa Xi has struggled with numbers and the chapter has been and remains in jeopardy. Rush is scheduled for 6pm Sunday, October 15, 2000 in the Moyer Student Union. G> pm
