Greeks take national title again
Monday, April 20, 2009
For the second year in a row, student members of the university’s fraternity and sorority learning community received first place in the national Order of Omega Case Study Competition.
The contest, in which two fraternity/sorority members have five hours to propose a course of action in response to real-life situations, featured 16 colleges and universities from across the United States. The hypothetical case the two were given involved the handling of a complaint regarding a party-related assault.
St. Cloud State senior biomedicine and biological sciences major Kari Dahl of St. Cloud, Minn., and graduate student Patrick Patterson of Rockford, Mich., received first place and $125 each for their case study. The competition was held at the Mid-American Greek Council Association annual meeting in St. Louis, Mo.
