Spring 2021 Skee-Week Recap

Greetings from the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated: Tau Mu Chapter at DePaul University!

We are so grateful for those who have been attending our virtual programming this year. We understand the shift in social environments is tricky, and with that we plan to still bring the fun. Last month, we had the pleasure of having our Winter Skee-Week on February 22, 2021–February 26, 2021. Check out this coverage of our recent programming:

We began on Monday, February 22nd, where we decided to spotlight the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, as it was founded by a Black man in the 1950s. This spotlight was made to honor many Black artistic creatives such as Alvin Ailey, and all of the doors he has opened up for plenty of Black performers, while fulfilling our Target 4: The Arts!

On Wednesday, February 24th, Tau Mu hosted a financial workshop in honor of Target 3: Building Your Economic Legacy. We had the pleasure of having financial experts and consultants Maggie Carter and Katie Garber from the Thrivent Financial Firm. The workshop covered financial literacy, saving/investment strategies, and a stocks/bonds informational. The participants truly enjoyed being educated by Katie and Maggie, and expressed gratitude for this teachable moment.

On Thursday, February 25th, the chapter decided to take on the Sorority’s second target which is Women’s Healthcare and Wellness by creating recipes for healthy and tasty meals. These recipes can be found on the chapter’s social media page @TauMu_AKA.

To conclude the week, Tau Mu posted an acknowledgement highlighting and appreciating the accomplishments of the ladies of Tau Mu throughout the years. Friday, February 26th marked the 9th anniversary of Tau Mu’s charter date. We also shared general history on the chapter such as when it first was chartered, officer’s accomplishments.

We are so proud of the women who came together to create such an amazing chapter and express great gratitude to those who attended our Winter Skee-Week 2021 Programming. We hope to see you at future events!
