community with the added bonus of networking with Goldman Sachs
employees, including campus recruiters. Students decorated over 50
shoe boxes and added Valentine treats for the residents of Good

brightened up their day on Valentine’s Day while also working with
Goldman Sachs and getting their name out there.

Spring 2010 was a very successful semester for Alpha Kappa Psi Omega Zeta. Our core values were practiced and expanded upon greater than past semesters. Omega Zeta hosted many social events for the students of Binghamton University with a minimum of 300 attendants per event. Service was also a large focus of our efforts. We continued to visit the Blessed Hope Church on weekends where we conversed with children from all age groups from low-income families. Relay for Life was one of our larger service events. We fundraised for Relay throughout the year and had to make three teams to accommodate the large amount of brothers who wanted to attend. The Books for Africa also acquired many donations from students who wished to donate. With Brotherhood and Unity there were many brothers in attendance for PFC field day and the events during PFC week.
