The Beta Omicron chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity held their annual Rose Ball formal in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 7-8, 2008. Chapter Historian Manny Augello said the event was a big success. “As a chapter, we have so much to be proud of. This event was definitely a worthy complement to the great things that are happening in Beta Omicron.”
