Utica University fraternity ‘freezing for a reason’


UTICA — The brothers of Alpha Chi Rho (AXP) at Utica University are freezing, and it’s all for a good cause. The fraternity is conducting their annual Deep Freeze event to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society. The brothers will be “freezing for a reason” through March 5.

The brothers are camping out day and night on the lawn behind Strebel Student Center, hosting daily events in order to raise money to meet their goal of $5,000.

Events for this year’s Deep Freeze include: S’mores with KDP NAS at 7 p.m. today (March 2); candlelight vigil at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday; hot chocolate night with Chi Beta Sigma at 7 p.m. Thursday; and raffles, wings, and karaoke at 8 p.m. Friday.

“Whatever discomfort we feel pales in comparison to what cancer patients go through on a daily basis. We are excited to raise money for this most worthy cause,” said Andrew Viera ‘22, AXP president.

Individuals can contribute by making a donation at the campsite; all forms of payments are accepted and appreciated. Also donations can be made directly to the Relay for Life page at https://mobileacs.org/kjmrxp.
