Alpha Xi Delta - Epsilon Alpha

UWEC Campus Organizations
Greek Life

Alpha Xi Delta started out as a local sorority in 1941 when the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire was a state teacher's college. This local sorority was called Sigma Pi Kappa. Through a decree issued by the President of the college, the girls received permission to form their group providing its principles were based upon service to the school, bonded friendship of all the girls in the college, and purely democratic ideals. Although the first meetings were of an informal nature the name, purpose, mottos, and constitution were adopted which laid the foundation for the group. Soon the necessity of immediately enlarging the group arose. Several new members were appointed active members without the usual rushing and pledging. During the remainder of the semester and the following summer the Sigma Pi Kappa's further established themselves through activities such as rushing of pledges, purchasing pledge pins, designing active pins and composing sorority songs. In 1964 the women of Sigma Pi Kappa started seeking to become national and in 1965 they became national under the Epsilon Alpha chapter of Alpha Xi Delta. Our charter started with 50 girls, then in the 1970's the members increased to 75 girls. The Epsilon Alpha chapter has always strived to live by the ideals of our founders. The Epsilon Alpha chapter is just as strong today as it was years ago. We look forward to many more wonderful years and memories with all our sisters in Alpha Xi Delta.

Innocent Men, The

UWEC Campus Organizations
Performing

The Innocent Men is the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire's premiere 7 member all-male a cappella group, devoted to Inspiring Others to Experience and Support Music since the group's founding. In 1985, six members of the men's glee club, The Singing Statesmen, decided to sing "For The Longest Time" at the annual talent competition. The tune is from Billy Joel's album, "An Innocent Man", which inspired the group's name. In an attempt to capture their audience and unify their style, the original members wore red Converse All Stars (A.K.A. "Chucks"). The style stuck, and every generation of I-Men that succeeded the original six have since donned a pair of these classic sneakers. Every semester, all seven members spend a week with middle and high-school students with the goal of inspiring them to experience and support music throughout their futures. In January 2016, the group released "identity", their eighth full-length album since their recording debut in 1996. The group also received "Audience Favorite" at National Harmony Sweepstakes Chicago Contest two years in a row (2015 and 2016) and has since maintained an interest in competing in the ICCA's.

The National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) is the largest grassroots mental health organization in the country with more than 600 local affiliates. Its mission is to provide advocacy, education, support, and raise awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares. 

Our local chapter is dedicated to addressing mental health issues at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire. The stress of attending university, enduring 2021, and living independently can overwhelm anyone so it's no surprise that according to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in four adults aged 18 to 25 suffer from some form of mental illness. Ultimately, our student organization is here to help promote mental and emotional health in whatever way we can. That may take the form of helping someone find additional resources, providing context through our own journeys in mental health, or by simply commiserating.

Please feel free to attend to any of our meetings at any time. For additional information please use the contact information below.

Pinky Swear PACK

UWEC Campus Organizations
Special Interest

We are the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Pinky Swear Ambassadors on College Campuses for Kids with Cancer (PACK). We support the Pinky Swear Foundation and their mission to help kids with cancer and their families. We fulfill this mission through providing financial and emotional support to these families. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyxHCa0Cbds

Cancer is not a one-day thing. It is hard to imagine what life is like to have a child going through cancer; it affects the whole family. That is why the Pinky Swear Foundation programs are so important. We do not limit requests from families, nor discriminate on socioeconomic status. When cancer enters life, the simple, everyday things aren't so simple anymore.

Pinky Swear Foundation Vision: To say YES to every family with a child battling cancer.

PACK Program Mission: College students working together to share their voices to further the mission of the Pinky Swear Foundation.

PACK Program Vision: All PACK members develop important leadership skills and become lifetime ambassadors for kids battling cancer.

The Pinky Swear Story: Before 9-year old Mitch Chepokas died from cancer, his dad made a pinky swear promise with him to continue to help children with cancer and their families by providing immediate needs, support, and unique family programs. More information found on pinkyswear.org.

Programs offered by the Pinky Swear Foundation for kids and families:

  • Orange Envelope Program
    • A message of love and support, plus gift cards delivered to families when their child is newly diagnosed with cancer.
  • All-Star Fund
    • Direct payments and gift cards that put meals on the table, keep the rent and mortgage paid, and fill the gas tank for trips to the doctor.
  • Family Experiences
    • Special outings that give families a chance to make memories, spend quality time, and find reasons to celebrate -- even in stressful times.
  • Pinky Swear Pantry
    • On-site food pantries at children's hospitals so that families can keep nourished without having to leave their child's bedside during treatment.
