UPLB Memorandum of Agreement - Mutual Cooperation:

UP Beta Sigma and Upsilon Sigma Phi



January 12, 2017

Dear Brods,

Attached are photos of the signing of a MOU between UP Beta Sigma Fraternity & Upsilon Sigma Phi, pledging mutual cooperation in campus activities & respecting the long history of each fraternity in UPLB.

The common goals are to prevent campus incidents which lead to preventive suspensions of both our residents (resulting in dismissals) & to uplift the image of fraternities as campus leaders & future responsible UPLB alumni.

The first joint campus project this year is the bloodletting during the UPLB Feb Fair in cooperation with the Red Cross (details in a separate email later on).

This is a prelude to the formation of a larger group, the UPLB Barkada Barkadahan. It is to be patterned after the UP Barkada Barkadahan of UP Frat Men & UP Orgs.
Brods Lakan Fonacier & Boyet Fernandez & Frank Cornejo have agreed to help in its formation.

Cheers to Beta Sigma!
