This website helps to bridge the gap between all nine organizations. Now I can see what’s going on from coast to coast and can plan my schedule accordingly if I plan to attend events hosted by other organizations,” explained Parker. In less than two months has attracted more than twenty thousand unique visitors including subscribers as far away as Japan. “We actually had a Sigma subscribe that was based in Japan. That’s when I knew we were on to something,” Parker stated.

In addition to the event listings, a new feature on launched June 3rd. An Online Soap Opera about black greek life that received national attention and was picked up by several years ago is set for relaunch exclusively on the website. As The Sands Burn is written by Darrius Gourdine, an Alpha and critically acclaimed author. Each week readers can discover plots and cliffhangers in new episodes, which feature more than thirty fictional characters from representatives of all nine greek organizations. Parker stated, “When Darrius approached me about bringing As The Sands Burn back I immediately jumped at the opportunity. He is an extremely talented writer and I was a big fan of ATSB back in the day. This will be an added bonus for the community.”
