Eli Hoffman receives the Council KeyPA Alpha Delta gets big ups at Convention

This summer Philadelphia played host to Pi Lambda Phi’s Leadership Convention, the annual gathering of Pi Lams and subsequent validation that most other chapters are weenies.

You may remember as an undergrad, it’s not just an event; it’s an obligation! Days of exhilarating dialogue on eliminating prejudice, living the creed, and managing liability… all culminating in a presidential awards banquet — because a vice presidential awards banquet would not accurately reflect the significance of this event.

We came, we saw; we collected certificates.

Temple was well represented at the banquet by undergraduates and distinguished alumni, many of whom were recognized for their contributions to Pi Lambda Phi.

Congratulations brothers!

Our sincerest apologies to event organizers for the behavior of Ryan Overturf, who loudly interjected at the end of each award presentation, "you know who really deserves that council key? Beyoncé, that's who, bitches!"
