It’s time to lay the foundation as we navigate and discuss recent events surrounding police brutality, the black lives matter movement, and how we, the Mason community, can build up from here. In order to bring about change we must foster honest and truthful conversations about the harsh truths we each face everyday as we leave our homes. Tune in via zoom on Thursday, June 18th at 7pm as we unpack our feelings over these tragic losses and how we can further advocate and fight for change. Register on Mason360 to receive the zoom link for this live townhall for the George Mason University Community.

To be a Don is never easy and the few that make it truly are Distinguished. On April 9th, 2015, Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc. welcomed FIVE remarkable young men into its Illustrious Brotherhood. Today marks our monumental five years at George Mason University since the first Distinguished Dons formally established a new era. We would like to wish our Founding Line, “Embajadores de Una Nueva Era,” a Happy Phiotaversary and thank them for bringing forth a new organization. These five brave souls embarked on a journey and became the first Distinguished Dons at George Mason University! Since then our organization has grown and continued to exhibit the ideals of Panamericanism. Congratulations Hermanos! 🦁

#1 Brandon “Don Kólintúmel” Juarez Lopez
#2 Luar “Don Nobili” Pacheco
#3 Jose “Don Reynaldus” Martinez
#4 Luis “Don Ñawpaciy” Aguirre
#5 Jonathan “Don Emineo” Morales

We would also like to thank the communities that supported us thus far! Thank you for the inspiration you given us to continue!
