Alphi Chi Omega sorority sponsored its second Alpha Male competition last Friday in Trout Auditorium to benefit the Susquehanna Valley Women Transition, an agency that aids victims of domestic violence. One man from each fraternity on campus competed for the title in a variety of events throughout the night. The 400 available tickets sold out on the day before the event.
The second round consisted of swimwear modeling. Many of the competitors sported speedos while others took a more relaxed approach with a sun hat and a ukulele.

“They were all definitely ready for beach season!” Eliza Macdonald ’14 said.
Next came the talent portion where the men performed a talent of their choice.
“My favorite part of the competition was witnessing the different hidden talents that all the contestants had,” CK Kumah ’13 said.

These talents included ribbon dancing, interpretive dancing, rapping about each sorority, pizza making, solving a Rubik’s Cube, and many more.
The presidents of each sorority judged the competition.

“We were so pleased to have each chapter represented on the [judging] panel,” said Jenna DeLuca ’13, president of Alphi Chi Omega. “I was honestly very impressed with each and every one of the contestants! Each man confidently represented his chapter in a unique way.”

“My favorite aspect of judging Alpha Male was being able to take part in an incredibly fun and successful philanthropic event that brought the Greek community together. Watching the representatives from each fraternity eat up a spotlight was priceless,” said Dana Musulin ’13, president of Alpha Delta Pi.

Kumah of Phi Gamma Delta was the ultimate winner and crowned Alpha Male 2012.

“Personally I thought it was a 10-way tie because each and every one of the contestants was equally impressive and made it difficult for the judges to come to a conclusion. I was literally blown away when they announced me as the winner,” Kumah said.

Brottman presented Susquehanna Valley Women in Transition with a check for $2,000, 15 percent of which will go to Fiji’s philanthropy in honor of Kumah’s winning.

“It was such an amazing feeling to know that Alpha Chi was making a true impact on the lives of these victims,” Brottman said.

“My favorite part of the event was the involvement of all the people there and everyone being so excited. The guys who participated were great and we had so much fun working with them!” Lewis said.
