Diversity on Display at Delta Phi Lambda Event
The diverse and talented student body of Georgia Tech will be celebrated at Delta Phi Lambda’s 11th annual Night of Diversity, which will showcase performances by an assortment of student organizations.
Emily Marin is a third-year computer science major and president of Delta Phi Lambda, a multicultural student organization and sorority. She says the event will highlight the many different cultural organizations that exist on campus.
“We are pulling performances from Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., 3rd Eye Visions, Seoulstice, GT Tufaan, IMPACT, Glee Club, Multicultural Greek Council, and Atlanta-based rapper Kaptivated,” said Marin.
Performances will include spoken word, K-Pop inspired dance, stroll and step, Bollywood fusion dance, and more.
Delta Phi Lambda has hosted the event in cooperation with other campus organizations every year since the organization was chartered. Marin says one of the event’s main goals is to foster connections across Tech’s diverse community.
“Many students have noted that there is an increasing need, both on campus and off, to build bridges among diverse groups,” said Marin. “Across the country there is a lot of division and polarization right now. We hope that this event helps restore hope in collaboration and cooperation throughout the Georgia Tech community.”
Marin also hopes that the event will be an opportunity for students to discover new parts of life at Georgia Tech, and for campus organizations to share their talents.
“Many students are unaware of all of the performance groups that we have on campus. Night of Diversity is an opportunity for Georgia Tech students to discover, celebrate, and learn more about these communities and organizations,” said Marin. “It also creates a platform for student organizations to perform and display their unique characteristics and skills for a wide audience.”
Night of Diversity is free to attend and will be held Tuesday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom.
