(Chicago Sun Times) — Corey White stepped onto the University of Chicago campus prepared for a four-year commitment. But that was small shakes compared with the commitment he also was prepared to make to Alpha Phi Alpha. That would be for a lifetime.
He’s about two years in, having joined the group’s Theta chapter as a freshman in spring 2008. That’s just a blip in the chapter’s 100-year history, which will be celebrated with a Saturday gala at the South Shore Cultural Center.
