It was a big weekend for the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Four new lines came out here in Indiana. Ball State’s show was Thursday, IUPUI’s was Friday, and both Purdue and ISU had shows on Saturday.
Of course I went to the Purdue Probate, and to say it wasn’t an experience would be a lie.
The CL50 lecture hall was packed from floor to ceiling with people ready to see the new Apes. Like most probates the show started about an hour late, with more energy than I can describe in words.
Sitting in a hot lecture hall sounds miserable but this was the exact opposite. The loud music mixed with the hyped up crowd made the event a blast.
From listening to the greetings, spitting info, and watching the boys dance and hype up the crowd I could not have had a better time. I wasn’t bothered by the show starting late because it was well worth the wait.
I encourage anyone who gets the chance to attend a probate to do so. They are high in energy and are a great way to interact with and meet new people.
