From the Arthritis Foundation
The following letter was received from Arthritis Foundation President and CEO John H. Klippel, MD following AOII Convention 2005. Over the past several years, attendees to AOII conventions and conferences have donated thousands of stuffed pandas to host city charities and branches of the Arthritis Foundation. Whether measured in dollars or smiles, generous gifts continue to make a difference in the lives of those affected by arthritis. The Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation and Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity remain committed to this noble cause.

Dear Ms. Doyle:
On behalf of the children attending this year's American Juvenile Arthritis Organization, I want to express our sincere appreciation for the panda bears that AOII so generously donated. The bears will be used to demonstrate ways that children can manage some ofthe physical issues associated with arthritis. The pandas will make these activities a fun and positive experience.
We sincerely appreciate AOII's ongoing commitment to our mission to improve the lives of the 66 million people including 300,000 children in our nation who live with arthritis everyday. Y our financial contribu- tions and the volunteer efforts of your members are bringing us closer to the day when arthritis is no longer a threat.
Thank you for all that you do for the Arthritis Foundation.
Sincerely,
John H . Klippel, M D President and CEO

Susan Danko International President
AOII Perspective
I am deeply honored and extremely excited to have been chosen to serve as your International President. I promise each of you that I will do my very best to fulfill your expectations of this office. You have provided me with a charge to lead. Certainly J won't be doing this alone. I will need all ofyou working together to accomplish great things. As leaders, many times we talk about the challenges ahead. I have always focused on the potential of what could be. I would like to share with you one of three leadership principles that we, as members, can follow as we transform potential into reality.
First of all, I believe that we must start our journey together with an attitude of service to our members. Simply put, as AOIIs, we are all called upon to serve. In AOII we are taught—the mainspring of our fraternity is service; the greatest opportunity is to serve: and as we are serviceable, we shall be useful to the world. To look at this from a similar per- spective, it's called "servant leadership." When I was first elected to the board, Carole Jones gave us a book entitled, "To Lead is to Serve. How to Attract Volunteers and Keep Them" by Shar McBee. This is one of the most intriguing andinspiringbooksIhaveeverreadandIcontinuallyrefertoit. Sharstates..."inordertoleadpeoplewemustlearn to serve them." Here are 6 of her 13 steps toward servant leadership that really grabbed my attention.
1. Be Welcoming - people feel happiest when they belong. Everyone wants to be included. Acknowledge those who walk into the room at your next chapter meeting or pass you in the hall. Remember first impressions are lasting impressions. Welcoming also applies to conversations on the phone. Ensure that the person you are talking tofeels like they are the most important person in the world and don't forget to smile.
2. Show Appreciation - gratitude attracts support; appreciation creates success. Express your appreciation often.
Most of us keep a daily "to do" list. How about adding a "thank you" section to your list.
3. Listen - John E Kennedy said.... "One way to judge our effectiveness as a leader is by the amount of honest feedback we get." The only way to get honest feedback is to listen. Taking time to listen can be our greatest contribution. Listening makes peoplefeelvalued. When we listen we learn. Ifwe are open to suggestions, the whole organization can benefit.
4. Sacrifice - Shar states... "Are you willing to do more than you ask others to do?" The word sacrifice means "to make sacred." It can actually be noble to sacrifice. When something is given up, it can make room for something better to evolve.
5. Inspire and Inform - Share your favorite experience in AOII, tell an uplifting story, read a letter of appreciation. Inspiration creates energy and energy creates action and results by our members. Give information freely; people like to be informed especially about their own work. In addition, we all have a duty to replace ourselves.
6. Have fun everyday - This is my personal favorite.... Humor does many wonderful things for our bodies, minds and spirit. Think about those times when you've had fun with your sisters or your families. When we do some things in a playful manner, they become much easier and more fun and we get more cooperation.
By incorporating these 6 steps we will be on the road to serving our members. 1 look forward to sharing with you in future Perspectives two additional leadership principles allowing us to continue to transform our Fraternity.
Fraternally, Susan Danko

Alpha Omicron Pi is seeking your assistance
in a national grass roots campaign of letter writ-
ing by all fraternities and sororities in support of
the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act
of 2005 (bill number
H.R. 1548 in the House
of Representatives and
bill number S.713 in the Senate). This legisla-
tion will fundamentally improve the ability ofcol- lege fraternities to improve our student housing.
We are just one of
100 national fraternities and sororities that will
be writing Congress
in support of the bills. We are asking for you
to write your congress- men in support of the bills and send a copy to our Washington lobbyist for us to track our efforts. Specific information was emailed to all members for whom we have email addresses. Ifyou would like more information,
contact AOII HQ at 615-370-0920.
Receive AOII Email Messages
We want to be sure you are kept up-to-date with all AOII communications, and to do this you
may need to check your email controls. As many of you know, spam is an increasing problem for email users, thus many of you have set up controls to have controls set by your internet provider to keep from being inundated with these types of messages. When setting up these controls, please be sure you have a window to allow AOII email in. We rely heavily on email to send timely infor- mation out to our volunteers in a cost effective manner, and need to be sure you are receiving the messages. There are also occasions when we need to send important messages to our entire member- ship. Here are the emails you need to be sure to set up as friendly/accepted emails:
1. [email protected] This is the address many of our emails will be coming from using our new html email system.
2. [email protected]
This is the address that posts from My Commu- nity and will come to you if you have set your My Community preferences to receive email.
3. Any email address ending in alphaomicronpi.org. Our staffwill often send emails from their own accounts (such as the Network News) and you will need to white list this email address. The first two emails addresses are coming from a separate server, and depending
on how your spam control is set, they may not be listed separately in your friend/accepted email list.
The way to set these preferences varies depending on who you use as an email provider and what types of spam control you have added to your computer. Check with you email service, and they will be able to help you get your controls set prop- erly for you to receive the emails you want.

Conventior^oos
Wednt June2c
Convention 2005 was a memo- rable experienceforeveryone. The Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia played host to our bien- nial event as we gathered to Celebrate, Communicate and Collaborate! Many thanks to our Fraternity leaders, volunteers, local alumnae, and International Headquarters Staffwho all made this week a success.
After all the anticipation, nearly 600 AOIIs and several tons of luggage began arriving in Atlanta on Wednesday, June 29th. The Emporium opened and shop- pers were delighted with the amount and variety offabulous AOII merchandise available
to purchase. Judging from the overstuffed shopping bags, many shoppers decided to buy early! The Registration Desk, Head- quarters Office, Foundation Of- fice and numerous exhibits were up and running at a hectic, but organized pace. Over 500 boxes filled with convention materials and merchandise were packed and shipped from Brentwood to Atlanta. An AOII convention is no small undertaking!
Local Atlanta AOIIs graciously pitched in to help stufftote
bags and assist with registra- tion. Other local volunteers also helped throughout the week with banquet decorations.

and Chapter Presidents were held on Wednesday and Sally W agaman, IP, hosted a lovely soiree for all Past Interna- tional Presidents.
The first major all-convention event was the Kick-off and Welcome Reception at 5:00 and featured a delicious southern dinner. The mix and mingle dinner started with a Dixie- land caesar salad with Romaine, red and yellow peppers, green tomatoes, Parmesan, and haystack fried onions with a buttermilk Dijon dressing; baby back ribs with cabernet-barbecued sauce served with skillet cornbread; a mashed potato bar featur-
ing mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, served in a martini glass offered with scallions, whipped butter, bacon bits, sour cream, shredded cheese, wild mushrooms and country gravy. Dessert featured an array of southern sensations such as pecan diamonds, peach tartlettes, key lime tarts, chocolate turtles, white choco- late peach mousse, lemon me- ringue tarts, brandied peaches and cream, and pecan tarts.
At 6:15, an AOII choral group led us in singing before IP Sally Wagaman officially welcomed everyone to AOII Convention 2005. Afterabitofopening business from CIRC Chairman Julie Brining and International Parliamentarian Ingrid Schulz, Sally introduced ourfirstkey- note speaker. Sachi Koto, whose
speech was funded by the AOII Foundation. Sachi is a 16-year veteran of CNN and currently serves as anews anchorforCNN Headline News.
Following Sachi's inspiring speech. Barb Zipperian, Vice President of Finance, spoke briefly on the financial direction ofthe fraternity, leading into
the introduction of Dan Shaver, President and Founder ofAffin- ity Marketing Consultants, Inc. Dan is a drivingforcebehind AOIIs new Life Loyal AOII Program. Dan introduced the new program which is designed to enhance services to members and to recognize loyal AOIIs.
By 8:30, delegates moved to the Candle Lighting Service rehearsal and robing, then
on to the beautiful ceremony which began around 9:30. Following Candle Lighting and continuing well into the eve- ning, numerous collegiate and alumnae chapter meetings were held, while other sisters gathered to catch up with old friends, or make new ones.
Thursday, June 30th
Everyone was up in good spirits as the morning officially got underway with Ritual rehearsal, robing, and then Opening Ritual. AOII's beautiful Ritual is even more impressive at an International Convention, and this year's event included the initiation of two alumna initi- ates. By 10:00, all attendees were seated for our Opening
stand while numbers are called out representing the number of conventions attended. As the number you have attended is called out, you are seated. Col- legians, particularly, are amazed at the longevity of service from some ofAOH's alumnae as
the numbers creep higher and higher. This year, Peg Crawford was the big winner having at- tended 27 AOII conventions!
Following the US and Canadian National Anthems, and AOII Grace came brunch, a magnifi- cent feast. The delicious brunch featured a fresh berry breakfast parfait with layers ofgranola, fresh fruit and yogurt with fresh strawberry garnish, scrambled eggs served with pecan peach compote and grilled pineapple, home fried breakfast potatoes, bacon strips and sausage links.
During the program, numerous volunteer recognitions were made and Toni Morgan, Vice
ing Business Session in order to witness democracy in action. The agenda included: Introduc- tions and Roll Call. Adoption
of the Rules ofConvention and the Convention Program, Report of the International President, Report of Fraternity Human Resources Committee, Report of the Foundation Nominat-
ing Committee, Report of the Vice President of Finance and, Report ofthe AOII Properties President. After that, delegates considered the Constitutional Amendments, then started the Bylaws Amendments and con- tinued until time ran out. The business session wasfollowedby colonization meetings and AOII Properties Q&A.
After a quick dress change to cocktail attire, everyone was treated to a fun-filled evening beginning with High Tea, Din- ner and an Emporium Fashion Show. The high tea menu featured scones, chocolate covered strawberries, grapes and

hot teas, while the dinner menu included turkey tenderloin medallions with bourbon glaze, sun-dried tomato-roasted com risotto, pole beans, and pecan pie. Festive "high tea" accents to everyone's attire included hats, gloves, and boas. Toni Morgan, Vice President of Development, served as Toastmistress for this banquet and led the welcome and introductions. More volunteer recognitions were made and everyone was highly entertained by a hilarious Past International Presidents' Skit. During this time we were also treated to the traditional Past International Presidents' Story Telling session, in which each PIP reminisced about a memo- rable highlight during her tenure as president. This is always a convention favorite. During dinner, the Emporiuni Awards were presented.
At 830 the doors opened
in an adjacent ballroom for "Celebrate...A011 Premiere" Awards Ceremony. For the next two hours, excitement was in the air as award after award was announced. Two years of hard work paid offfor many as they were honored for their commit- ment to excellence.
Following the ceremony, the Fimporium remained open for shoppers to continue shop- ping until the wee hours of the morning!

FridayJuly 1st
Events got offto a quick start this morning and everyone looked fabulous dressed in AOIfs colors ofred and white. Registration and the Emporium opened
early and Network Directors and Specialists met with chapters. The PIPs held a history book signing, which was extremely popular, and the Forever Friends Reception took place with sisters sipping pink lemonade punch served in champagne flutes. Forever Friends was a wonder- ful way that many sisters chose to honor a special sister. For a monetary donation, sisters were recognized with a special invita- tion to this reception, a certifi- cate and their name placed on a plaque at AOII Headquarters.
The Panhellenic Brunch began around 10:30 with Carole Jones, PIP and AOII NPC Delegate, serving as toastmistress. Our NPC guests were each greeted by a hostess and joined us for this "Always _. AON" themed meal. After a welcome. Melanie Doyle, Executive Director, introduced our speaker from the Atlanta Convention Bureau who gave a briefhistory ofAtlanta. This speaker was made possible through a grant from the AOII Foundation.

A second panda donation presentation was made to the American Juvenile Arthritis Or- ganization (AJAO). The AJAO National Conference was held July 28-31 in Providence, Rhode Island and AOII pandas were lovingly distributed through
their Teddy Bear Pain Clinic. Carol introduced the delightful keynote speaker, Leah O'Brien- Amico. Leah is a tJiree-time Olympic gold medalist in Softball and considered one ofthe top clutch hitters in the world, with numerous titles to her name.
Following the Luncheon, the Closing Ritual was held, which was exceptionally moving and inspirational, as wasfiningfor such an event. And to top offall the day's excitement, the biggest eventofallwasstillyetto
come - the "Celebrate... AOII Traditions" Rose Banquet.
Everyone looked particularly radiant this evening. Many of the evening gowns were formal and a few of the men in atten- dance donned tuxedos. Official
V
board and PIP phoios and the Executive Board receiving line preceded the main event. The banquet doors opened at 6:45 and Sally Wagaman, now a Past International President, presided over the event as Toastmi stress. Each table featured an arrange- ment of red roses, accented with dried cotton and a flocked green ribbon with magnolia leaves and Queen Anne's lace. Magnolia leaves and cotton pods were scattered on the tables. The tables were also accented with commemorative convention charms for all attendees to take home as keepsakes.
By 6:45, the attendees anxiously awaited the Processional of the new 2005-2007 Executive Board who was escorted to her seat byanelegantlyattiredRhett Butler and Scarlet O'Hara. Past International President Sally Wagaman and Fred Crane, who played Brent Tarleton in "Gone with the Wind" made the introductions. The backdrop featured the famous Twelve Oaks grand staircase from "Gone With the Wind."
A scrumptious Rose Banquet feast was servedfeaturinga Marquis salad, garlic and pep- percorn crusted tenderloin over portabella crouton: wild mush- room chantrelle ragout; roasted potatoes, chocolate sacks with berries, and assorted rolls.
Following special recognitions came the presentation of the prestigious Founders' Awards: Elizabeth Heywood Wyman Award - Leslie Pickerill John- stone. Beta Kappa - U ofBritish Columbia
Helen St. Clair Mullan Award - Barbara Daugs Hunt, Phi Delta - U of Wisconsin Milwaukee Jessie Wallace Hughan Award - Kappa Tau Chapter, Southeast- ern Louisiana U,
Stella George Stem Perry Award - DiannaSawicki,Lambda Upsilon - Lehigh U.
A touching moment occurred when Sally Wagaman, Immedi- ate Past International President, presented the International Presidents Ring and the Gavel to the new International President, Susan Danko. The evening's
keynote address was delivered magnificently by Susan Danko. She shared three leadership principles with us, a portion ofwhich she discusses in her Perspectives article on page 4 ofthis issue.
Applause filled the room as the announcement was made for the site ofour 2007 International Convention at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. Following final announcements by Mela- nie Doyle, everyone adjourned for the Friendship Circle and Epsilon Chapter Song.
It was a grand week. As tired sisters begin to return to their rooms, it was hard to miss
the number of hugs being exchangedinthehallways. Despite all the fun, the most im- portant outcome had really been the renewing offriendships and the celebration ofsisterhood. I f for no other reason than that, it was a convention to remember for a lifetime.

... sounds the alarm clock for the third time early Monday morn- ing- anot-so-friendlyremindertoasleepyJulieAnn,andher sisters in the surrounding rooms, thai it is 6:24 and she has to get up for class. Thud... plop... whack - come the friendly reminders from nearby rooms to turn off her clock before it sounds again!
Julie Ann and Grace have been roommates for two semesters, and the morning routine is always the same. Julie Ann's alarm clock sounds for all to hear, while she rolls over and covers her head with her blanket. Grace coaxes her out of bed just in time to shower and eat breakfast before their eight o'clock class. Julie Ann grum- bles every morning why she ever signed up for such an early class.
Grace, on the other hand, stretches and yawns while she rolls out
of bed, searching for her shower shoes in the dark, reaching for her towel and padding down the hall to the showers. She passes her little sister Elizabeth on the way, wet hair wrapped in her own towel, eating a banana from the kitchen. Elizabeth smiles, gives her a quick hello and disappears into her own room. Grace finds her shower
caddy and turns on the water. It is only when she reaches for her razor that she realizes she doesn't have her own shower caddy at all ... so she grabs her towel, makes a quick dash for the shower cubby, returns the caddy in hand lo its rightful place and picks out her own, making sure that she has the correct red and while bucket this time! There they are, painted in big letters on the side, G-R-A-C, the E has faded lo nothing over time - a small reminder of her Big Sis/Little Sis Week, so she cannot bear to part wilh it.
An hour later, Grace and Julie Ann are almost ready for breakfast. As Grace searches for her favorite little black dress, Julie Ann chat- ters about the upcoming week of events. It's Greek Week, one of the most memorable weeks of the year for sororities and fraterni- ties. Grace moves from her closet to her roommates', still in search of her dress. She looks under the bed and in a pile of clothes that have yet to make it to the closet, taking up residence in a corner of the room that has not yet been inhabited by books, stuffed pandas, or shoes. She settles on a blue dress instead, slips on her sandals, grabbing her watch and her badge, affixing them on the way down the hall to breakfast.

L* * * A^~^\TTTT iving m the AOII House
The dining room is a morning collage of pajamas and slippers as the women of the house gather together to discuss everything from week- end dates for the football game to chapter meeting that night. Breakfast is served! The selection includes fruit, cereal, eggs and toast with oatmeal, or a bagel with cream cheese and preserves. Grace picks up a bowl for cereal and some apple juice, while Julie Ann settles on a bagel and some OJ. They join their friends at a table near the window.
It's ten minutes 'til eight.. time to go. They grab their backpacks and leave for class, a few sisters making it to the kitchen just in time to grab a cereal bar on their way out the door and join them. The quieted dining room begins to fill again with die last few sleepy heads who want to grab a quick bite before the kitchen doors close in preparation for lunch.
No one wants to miss lunch at the house, but it's especially important for those who don't live there. It is where most sisters will be between the hours of ii:0O and 1:00 to grab a quick bite between classes. A buf- fet ofhotfoodis always served, with a salad bar and dessert bar on the sides. Ofcourse, that isonly the background forthe continuous chatter ofwomen coming and going and discussing all that University life has to offer that day. The foyer is a collection of backpacks, purses, books and shoes until each item is eventually found by its owner and prepared for the next sojourn across campus. A quick glance into one offourmirrors on the way out the door to fluffhair and touch up lip gloss, and the sisters stream out of the house headed toward their respective destinations.
Monday is chapter meeting night. The dinner bell tings at 5:00 and the women of the chapter, dressed in badge attire, quietly find their seats
in the dining room. Once all have arrived, the house director stands at her designated place at the head table, all heads bow and AOII Grace is sung. Once seated, dinner is served.
Amid the dim ofchattering, the doorbell rings. Answered by the house director, the men of a campus fraternity file in, dressed in jackets and ties proudly deliver a dozen red roses to grace thefoyerand respect- fullyrequestthatweparticipateinHomecomingwiththem. Cheers. Squeals. Snaps. Claps. Our Chapter President respectfully receives the roses and thanks the gentlemenfortheir request. Itwill be considered at our chapter meeting this evening.
At the end of dinner and while dessert is served, general announce- ments are made. There is a fifteen-minute break while the dining room is cleared before chapter meeting begins. Just enough time for Grace to find her big and little sisters. Her big sis, Mary Kate, has two spaces reserved near her for Grace and Elizabeth, who walks in wear- ing Grace's favorite little black dress! Grace smiles and compliments her on her attire, Elizabeth smiles back and thanks her... she had borroweditoutofherclosetthenightbeforewhileGracewasupstairs visiting some sisters!
A productive chapter meeting begins and ends as the women ofAlpha Omicron Pi prepare for another week of sorority life. Once the final Ritual is spoken, some sisters prepare for study hour. Others pop some popcorn and pile up on the sofas for another rerun of Friends. Still oth- ers retreat to their rooms to catch up with sisters or a little lost sleep over the weekend. Everyone knows all too well that there is too little time before Julie Ann's 6:00 a.m. wake-up routine tomorrow morning.
This could be a typical day for a member ofAlpha Omicron Pi living in one of our magnificent properties. On this same day, Alpha Omicron Pi Properties is working toward our Vision, our Mission and our Goals in an effort to provide competitive and safe housing for all members of our Fraternity.
Our Vision is to be the leader in providing quality housing facilities

Ruby fund
The idea of a Friendship Fund began circulating in 1945. For Pi, who, in the unanimous opinion of the Trustees, were in dire / HelpingSistersin Need
several years, the AOII Executive Committee (now known as the Executive Board) had been receiving requests fora fund to be established to aid members in financial distress.
In a letter to AOII Council in 1945, AOII President Dorothy Dean wrote, "A long siege of illness has drained the family resources of the beloved mother of our fraternity, Stella Perry. Her mother's ill- ness and death, followed by the long illness of her husband and his death put such a strain upon Stella as to break her health. You will rejoice with us to know that she is steadily improving. Her need
has given urgency to the setting up of the Friendship Fund."
Out of love for Stella, coincidently a New Orleans native, and others in a similar plight, AOII Council voted on June 28,1946 to create the Ruby Fund. A Board of Trustees was authorized to render financial assistance to members of Alpha Omicron
need. In 1983, Council voted to incorporate the Ruby Fund into the AOII Foundation.
Thus since 1946, the Ruby Fund has been AOII's Good Samaritan sharing a spirit of Fraternity and love while showing compassion and understanding. It's through the Ruby Fund that AOII has been able to be the shoulder to cry on or the friend upon whom to call when a disaster or personal crisis strikes.
Through the years, Ruby Fund dollars have helped cover expens- es for nursing home care, medical needs, rehabilitation care and the basic necessities of life. It has even helped purchase a mem- ber's life support machine. Hundreds of sisters have benefitted, hundreds more have contributed. The Ruby Fund has relied, in large part, on donations collected each year at Founders' Day Celebrations.

When flooding devastated the Midwest in
1993, the Ruby Fund was there for our mem-
bers. After the 1994 earthquake rocked Los
Angeles, many affected collegians and alum-
nae requested and were given assistance. In
September 199], the Ruby Fund was called upon to help after the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.
On August 29, 2005, a disaster by the name of Katrina struck the Gulf Coastal areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. On September 24, Hurricane Rita pounded Texas and Louisiana. AOII's Ruby Fund will once again be called upon in the coming weeks and months to aid victims from these hurricanes. Long after governmental relief agencies have moved on, The Ruby Fund will still be available to help our members.
Hundreds of AOII alumnae and collegians live in the affected areas and many lost their homes and/or places of employment. We are continually seeking updated information about sisters, college campuses,collegiatechapterhouses,etc.Youcanfindout more
information by visiting the AOII website's "My Community" page on the private side of our site. A new community has been setup for you to "Connect with Sisters Affected by Hurricane Katrina." One area
encourages sisters to share their stories, inquire about a sister's well-being and let others know that they are safe. Other areas are the place to go for affected members to ask for a specific need or for members to offer assistance. Lastly, one area has been set up for members and chapters to share what they are doing to help.
Thankfully at this time, we are not aware of any members who perished due to the storms, but Alpha Omicron Pi had several collegiate chapters that were in harms way. The initial reports regarding our chapter houses and college/university campuses were encouraging. However, the family homes and businesses of hundreds of our alumnae and collegians were destroyed.
AOIIs should be proud to know that our Ruby Fund is available for sisterstoday,justasitwasforStellaPerrynearly60yearsago.

AOII Inducted into Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame
SdJrt/i Ts^^mjav T^JJ
Susan Russ is the winningest coach in the state of Tennessee. She is more than a cham- pion, she's a legend. This Murray State University (Delta Omega) graduate attained her legendary status by coaching teams to 20 state high school championships at Harpeth Hall School in Nashville, Tennessee. And for that remarkable accomplishment, she was recently inducted into the Tennessee State Sports Hall of Fame. "She's won more state titles than any high school coach in Tennessee," says Ryland Hoskins. executive director of the Ten- nessee Stale Hall of Fame. "She's a pioneer in women's track and field and very deserving of her induction into the Hall of Fame this year."
Susan came to Harpeth Hall from Memphis State University where she coached for 11 years. "Inever participated in high school or college athletics, but 1knew I wanted to coach," says Russ. "My husband suggested track, but there was no track program at Mem- phis State when we were there in 1969, so I got on the go ahead and stated putting up flyers all over campus." That very first year, her team placed second in the Tennessee State Colle- giate Track and Field Championships. Within a couple years she had her Memphis State Track team competing on a national level.
Susan arrived at the prestigious all-girls academy in 1979 to teach RE. and coach track and volleyball. Through the years, many more sports teams have been added to their program and participation has increased significantly. Close to 60% of upper school and 75% of middle school students in the school participate in a sports program. This year Susan's cross country team won its fourth straight state title setting a Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) state record for the most state championships (10) by any school, boys or girls, in all cross country divisions. Likewise, she guided her track team to its fifth consecutive title, breaking their own state record of most championships (13) in all track divisions. Among her numerous honors includes the TSSAA State Track and Field Coach of the Year and the 2003 Coach of the Year for the South Region by the National Federation of High School Associations Coaches Association.
Susan's success is rooted in her philosophy, "You have to be a good teacher to be a good coach. A n d I believe the key to winning is having the will to win and understanding 'team.'" She goes on to say. "My challenge is to help each girl reach her own individual potential while at the same time making her understand her role within the team. Every runner has a contribution to make to the team and when they understand this, they take ownership and eventually recognize their roles as athletes and ultimately as leaders."
In spite of all her success, her true legacy will be the lasting impact she has had on all her students and athletes. Her greatest contribution will be inspiring young women to believe in themselves and ultimately become the best athlete, student, leader and person possible.

HAZINGHASNOPUCE INAOII
It is recruitment week, and you have met that one girl who you know was bom to be an AOII. We have all met a girl like her and in many chapters, she becomes known as a "rush crush". You recruit her hard telling her all of the wonderful promises and privileges of membership. You are proud to tell her AOII believes
in sisterhood for a lifetime; we have lots of fun together; we will support her in her academics; we participate in great philanthropies, and you will go to great lengths to convince her that AOII is the place for her.
During membership selection you passionately speak about how this woman meets all of the standards of AOII. She clearly will add benefit to the chapter and to the organization. You believe that she holds the values and principles that we as AOIIs cherish, and you want to see her wearing our letters.
Bid day arrives - the second most exciting day of the year (second only to Initiation) - and you anxiously wait to see her running towards your chapter and when she does, you are elated! The cosmic stars are aligned and the universe is in balance. You will soon have a new little sister and a friendforlife!
Now truthfully, in your chapter, what do the next six weeks hold? Is the New Member education period a time of learning AOII history, traditions, values, and experiencing the start of a lifetime of warm friendships? Or is it a time for New Members to prove to initiated members some inappropriate, forbidden and unre- quired eligibility standards for membership? Ifyour chapter continues to lean to the latter, your chapter's very existence is in jeopardy.


Unfortunately, Greek organiza- tions have been in the news
too often in recent years for the wrong approach to the new member period. Stories of haz- ing have emerged and have included incidents that resulted in severe injury and death.
This year, two University of Miami students were ordered
by a Florida state court to pay $12.6 million in damages to the family of a young man who died due to drowning in a lake on campus. Chad Meredith died after participating in an event that his family's lawyer attributed to fraternity hazing. The jury found the Chapter President and another member of this national fraternity to be civilly liable for Chad's death and they were each ordered to pay $6.3 million to Chad's family.
Due in large to this case, Florida Governor Jeb Bush recently signed into law The Chad Meredith Act, making hazing that results in serious injury a crime punishable by up to five
QUICK QUIZ:
years in prison, even if the vic- tim consents. Activities putting someone at risk of injury can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor crime in the state of Florida. Other states are likely to follow suit. The bill encompasses col- lege fraternities and sororities, athletic teams, marching bands and any other extracurricular activities overseen by a college or high school that receives state funding.
While the activities that con- stitute hazing vary, all hazing has one factor in common. It is based upon the belief that dur- ing the weeks prior to Initiation, new members must show they are willing to earn their place
in the organization. How can someone who was a wonderful match for an organization during recruitment, be treated in the new member period as if she must perform tasks to prove she is worthy of membership?
In order to change this under- standing of the new member period, there needs to be a shift
in chapter culture on many campuses regarding their under- standing of the offer of mem- bership. During recruitment, potential new members learn about the values and ideals that Greek organizations espouse. Each chapter seeks out potential members who will reflect the standards and embrace the philosophy of their organiza- tion. The act of offering a bid is the end product of the mutual evaluation that occurs during recruitment. It is tangible proof that an individual is believed
to be in alignment with the standards and values that the organization holds dear. There is no need to further earn one's place or perform acts to prove oneself worthy. The new mem- ber claims her place on bid day as each new sister welcomes her in beginning a journey that will last her lifetime.
Sadly, Chad Meredith's case
is one of many examples of activities that should never have happened. These stories frighten and horrify us all. NPCandlFC
organizations create educational resources that seek to bring home the reality of the destruc- tion that hazing causes. But where must this message truly begin? The commitment to stop hazing must occur in the minds and hearts of the collegiate members. Each individual must recognize that hazing is not con- sistent with the values of respect, integrity, service, and friend- ship that are the foundation of Greek organizations. They must realize that hazing cannot be rationalized with statements, "It's tradition. They expect it. I had
to do it when I was a new mem- ber." Most of all, each member must be aware that hazing is personal with devastating seen and unseen consequences. And with this knowledge they must be willing to take a stand against hazing. They must choose activities that do not exert power over and hum iIiate those who will one day guide their chapter, but rather activities that teach and strengthen members' com- mitment to reflect the power
of their ideals.
0. WhateducationdoesAOIIrequirecollegiatechapterstocomplete regarding hazing prevention?
A. AOII Ami Hazing Policy Education:
• Anti-hazing module must be conducted each semester a collegiate
chapter has a new member class
• Anti-hazing module conducted with new members and sponsors • Signed attendance sheet
• Signed awareness and understanding of policy statement
Q. How do other NFC groups feel about hazing?
A. In 1977, NPC passed a resolution which states in part, "All hazing should be eliminated and that the new member programs be directed toward the appreciation of the fraternity and the understanding of the opportunities for self improvement that are offered for the individual."
U. How doIknowifanactivityishazing?
ft. Any activity that is required of new members but not the entire membership can send the wrong message and can divide rather than unite the group. Some activities may seem harmless such as having new members collect signatures of the entire chapter in order to spend time with all members. However, a better activity would be one in which everyone together participates so that there is not an implied inferiority on the part of the new members having to go seek out the other members.

NOCHAPTEROF ALPHAOMICRONPI NOR INDIVIDUAL OFFICER OR MEMBER THEREOF SHAL ENCOURAGE AUTHORIZE; RATIFYOR ENGAGEINTHEPRAC- TI CE OF HAZI NG ANK OF ITSNEWMEMBERSOR IISMEMBERS
This policy is consistent with the 1977 National Panhellenic Conference resolution, which states in part:
"All hazing should be eliminated and that new member programs be directed toward the appre- ciation of the fraternity and the understanding of the opportuni- ties for self-improvement that are offeredfor theindividual."
No chapter, colony, student or alumna shall encourage, con- done, ratify, authorize or engage in any conduct defined as a hazing activity hereunder nor under any educational institu- tion policy or state law.
Hazing activities are defined as: Any intentional or reckless act,
on or off the property of any higher educational institution
or fraternity premises, which is directed at any other student, that endangers or is reason- ably calculated or designed to endanger the mental or physical health or safety of that student, or which induces or coerces
a student to endanger such student's mental or physical health or safety, including but not limitedto, subjectingsuch student to physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule.
Such activities may include, but are not limited to, the follow-
ing: useofalcohol:paddlingin any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychologi- cal shocks; outrageous conduct; quests, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, road trips, or other activi- ties carried on outside or inside the confines of the chapter house or university property; wearing of public apparel
which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts or buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliat-
ing
other such activities that are not consistent with educational pur- poses, academic achievement, fraternal law, fraternal policy and procedure, fraternal rituals, or the regulations and policies
of the educational institution
or any applicable local, state, or federal law.
Hazing activities are not con- fined to obvious actions such as road trips and creating excessive fatigue,butcanbeanyaction violating human dignity such as seemingly minor acts of answer- ing thetelephonewithajingle, being forbidden to use a certain door or staircase, running er- randsformembers,oranyother activity not reasonably related
to the promotion of fraternal educational purposes.
The above-referenced activities are for the purposes of example only and are not meant to be inclusive of al hazing activi- ties. The Network Specialist
or, intheirabsence,another international official, should be contacted immediately if any member or new member has any
doubt as to any specific activity which may be in violation of this Hazing Policy. Any chapter engaging in such hazing activ- ity is subject to removal. Any member or alumna engaging in such hazing activity is subject to suspension from membership.
The chapter should give close attention to these guidelines in the planning and execution of pre-initiation activities. Alpha OmicronPi insistsuponand demands the exercise of good taste in al such activities. The chaptershouldviewtheperiod immediately preceding initiation as a time of fun and together- nessfortheentirechapter,as well as an excellent opportunity to prepare each new member psychologically, so that she can easily recognize and accept
the full range of benefits and responsibilities of fraternity membership.

Wanted! Great Photos
WE WANT TO PUBLISH QUALITY IMAGES OF O U R COLLEGIATE AND ALUMNAE MEMBERS AND WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Any member or chapter who takes photos of AOIIs is urged to submit photos for publication. We are looking for images of collegians and alumnae: smiling faces, sisters involved in activities, social events, fun moments, sporting or Greek activities, recruitment, bid day, pep rallies and more.
There are two ways to submit photos:
1. If you use 35 mm film or digital and are having pictures pro- cessed, be sure to order double prints and send the best photos of the second set to us. True photographs, rather than inkjet prints, are crucial to the preservation of the AOII archives. Submitted photos become the property of AOII archives and will not be returned. Mail your prints to: To Dragma Editor, AOII International Head- quarters, 5390 Virginia Way. Brentwood. TN 37027.
2 . If you have a 3 megapixel or higher digital camera, you may submit digital photography by email to AOII's graphic designer: [email protected]
Your photos could be used in ToDragma, on the AOII website, in promotional brochures, in extension displays or countless other Fraternity projects. Most photos eventually make their way to the archives for historical recordkeeping.
With all these possible uses, please take care to submit quality photographs that reflect credit upon AOII: good composition, focus, lighting and, certainly, good taste.
Not every photo can be published, but you don't have a chance if you don't send them in. It all starts with you and the flash of a camera.
PLEASE SEND PHOTOS!

The Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation is pleased to announce funding of over $25 ft.660 to educational and charitable pro-

These programs included grants to AOII Fraternity for education and leadership training, grants for arthritis research, grants to the American Juvenile Arthritis Organization for educational programs and children's camps, and grants to sisters in dire need. Your donation also enabled the Foundation to award thirty-five scholarships to sisters.
Thanks to support from many generous donors, the Foundation has given back nearly four million two hundred thirty five thousand over the years. Quite an achievement!
We are proud to announce that the "Legacy of Sisterhood" endowment campaign has raised over $277,000. As we continue this campaign, our goal is to fulfill our purpose and vision for the current and future women of AOII.
Achievement is largely the product of steadily raising one's level of expectations. Our level of achievement depends on our donors and good decisions. These two factors help us ensure the fulfillment of our dreams.

a tribute to a sister
A generous gift was made to the Foundation in memory
of Dana Dow Kastory, Omieron '54. who recently lost a lengthy battle with cancer. Dana was president of Omieron Chapter, a member of the Chattanooga, TN alumnae group, and later a charter member and president of the Orlando Alumnae Chapter. She served AOII in many capacities.
Dana was a loyal and loved sister who brought under- standing and hope to many during her illness.
Pay tribute to one of your dear AOII friends, your collegiate chapter, or your alumnae chapter when you make an honor or memorialgift to the AOII Foundation.
The Foundation posts all honor and memorial gifts at www.aoiifoundation.org and updates the lists quarterly.

Rene Strong
Fitzgerald
Pi Kappa 1957 (U of Texas - Austin)
Rene Strong Fitzgerald exemplifies AOII for a lifetime on a daily basis. Rene has been involved with the fraternity since the day she was initiated nearly 50-years ago. She has held numerous local chapter and international leadership roles in AOII including Alumnae Chapter President and every alumnae chapter officerposition, Rush (Recruitment) Adviser. Chapter Adviser. Corporation Board positions for two different collegiate chapters. Colony Adviser, Alumnae Regional Director, Alumnae Network Specialist for several terms, and Alumnae Network Director.
Rene's dedication and enthusiasm for AOII is contagious! In everything she does on behalf of our fraternity, she exudes optimism and loyalty with an unmistakable, never-ending spark of energy. To know this special sister leaves an indelible mark on your life because she exemplifies what AOII and our ritual is all about.
Given Rene's many leadership roles throughout her life, the decision to join Life Loyal
was an easy one. Rene states, "Our new wonderful Life Loyal program is just the latest example of the creativity of our leaders and members. 1 became a member (#66) in order to guarantee the further development of strong alumnae programming while insuring the further growth of our collegiate chapters. It has long been my concern that our collegiate network has borne the brunt of financing programs in our AOII - not just their own pro- grams, but also those of the alumnae. LifeLoyal AOII focuses unrestricted alumnae dollars toward funding strong alumnae programs, endowing ToDragma, and ensuring that our AOII will be there for future sisters."
For Rene's exemplary service and devotion to AOII, she was honored with the Adele K. Hinton Award at our International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. This award is named in honor of Past International President, Adele K. Hinton, and recognizes an alumna who has set an outstanding personal example for others in the Fraternity, exemplifies the ideals of AOII and inspires others to remain involved in fraternity service.
When speaking of her love for AOII, Rene states, "When I think of what AOII means to me, a flood of memories come to mind! There are the friendships that have endured over the years, there are the times when I have called on our Ritual to get me through difficulties, there are exacting and beneficial training sessions at Leadership Institutes and International Conventions, there is the pride of seeing chapters strive and persevere and become outstanding, there is personal development. I have seen our AOII go through numbers of changes over the years and have always known
the focus has been in the best interest of the Fraternity. First and foremost, is the knowledge that I have inspiring guidelines in common with my sisters and that
I have friends upon whom I will have no fear to call!"

Alumnae News
What is your chapter's
best hands- on project or craft activity?
Calgarg
The Calgary Alumnae Chapter members thor- oughly enjoy painting pottery every October. This popular event
has been a tradition for many years. What better way to create a personalized gift or finish a piece for your collection?
Central KY Bluegrass
W e had a wonderful time at our scrap- booking party. W e all learned scrapbooking techniques and made pages for ourselves and for the chapter scrapbook.
Central
NewJerseg
Our annual Make-a-
V alentine with a local children's hospital ward is both rewarding and fun. To bring a little sunshine into these children's lives and to help the hospital is a wonderful experience.
Central New Mexico
Our chapter is currently making an effort to call and/or write all the 50- plus and 25-plus year members in the entire state to congratulate
them and tell them about who we are.
Charleston
We recently met to create items for the new members at a nearby college. Each member was asked to bring craft materials that could be used to decorate door hangers, small boxes, and picture frames. Even those members who claimed not to be crafty had created cute items to share with the new members.
Charlotte
The two projects that our chapter continues
to be most proud of
are adopting a local classroom in need and
a local family in need. Our classroom adoption entails providing the students with various items throughout the school year. Such items may be vital like school supplies while others are simply pleasurable such as Halloween goody bags. Our family adop- tion typically entails donating needed items like clothing as well as
enjoyable things like toys and presents for the holidays.
Chicago City
Our chapter spent an afternoon of pottery painting at a local
establishment. Sisters could choose an item from an array of vases, dinnerware, piggy banks and picture frames. After our members did the painting, the items were glazed and fired by the proprietor.
Chicago West Suburban
One of the most fun, hands-on activities our chapter has held recently was a holiday cookie decorating party. The hostess and some of
the members prebaked shaped sugar cookies, then the chapter mem- bers used the provided icing and sprinkles to decorate them. There was a lot of laughter, and we all enjoyed the yummy results.
Cincinnati
Our members loved learning how to knit. W e worked with area hospi- tals to knit baby bonnets for the newborns being born at the various hos- pitals. W e got cozy with hot chocolate, a warm fire in the fireplace and a 50+ member teaching us to knit.
Dallas
In the Spring of 2004, we had a meeting on how to do faux finishes. One of our members, Jennifer
Acadiana
Our most popular craft activity was pottery painting. Everyone enjoyed expressing their creativity. The finished items were used for gifts or were very popular items in our silent auc- tion at Founders' Day.
Ann Arbor
Our best craft activity was making holiday jars with a dry soup mix for gifts. W e layered the
jars with various types of beans for soup and filled small bags with the sea- sonings. To complete the craft activity we topped the jars with a nice holi- day fabric, ribbon, and a recipe card.
Baton Rouge
A must-do activity for our chapter is our annu- al pottery/craft event. We put our creative minds to work designing our own "objects of art." Whether making pop- corn bowls or Christmas ornaments, we are sure to have lots of fun.
Bloomington- Nonnal
We've enjoyed pottery craft projects the last couple of years. W e
also have started a new tradition of making Halloween crafts for Epsilon Sigma (Quincy U) collegians. The girls enjoy our "creativity" and effort. Both events are

We held one of our meetings at a local ceramics workshop. Each person picked
out an item to finish and glaze. It was a fun opportunity to chat and catch up with other's busy lives.

We enjoyed a day at
a local, internation-
ally recognized pottery works, Pewabic Pottery. Pewabic Tiles appear in almost all local architec- ture of note in the metro Detroit area. After a
tour of the factory, we all sculpted and glazed decorative tiles to take home with us.

Protecting our Heritage
Like Nike's swoosh and McDonald's golden arches, names and logos are often trademarked and under exclusive ownership of the organizations they represent. The same is true with AOII.
The AOII Greek letters, the badge, and the name Alpha Omicron Pi are trademarked and belong to AOII International Fraternity. Alpha Omicron Pi, and not its individual chapters, is the exclusive owner of its trademarks. Any merchandise depicting AOII insignia must be ordered through AOII and/or the AOII Emporium or must be pre-approved through a licensing agreement with Alpha Omicron Pi.
What is licensing?
Licensing is defined as any agreement granting permission to use someone else's trademark. Only vendors that AOII has approved through a licensing agreement may produce special event shirts, tote bags, or any other product bearing our marks.
It's for this reason that Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity is one of forty-six Greek organizations licensed with Affinity Marketing Consultants (AMC). AMC's Greek
clients represent more than 200,000 students and
How does trademark protection impact you?
If our marks are used inappropriately, it will reflect poorly upon our organization and you. Licensing is designed to protect Alpha Omicron Pi and present a positive public image. AOII's symbols represent memorable lifetime experiences for all of us. In order to preserve those memories and sustain the traditions that were started by our Founders, it is our right and our responsibility to stop
the misuse of our symbols.
3 million households throughout North America. They lead all of their clients in the battle against unauthorized, and illegal vendors.
How can you tell if a product has
been produced by a licensed vendor?
If you're shopping from AOII's official merchandise
source, the AOII Emporium, you can be assured that every product offered is licensed and every dollar spent is going directly back to the Fraternity. If shopping with other vendors, be certain to look for the Greek Licensed Product logo. Licensed vendors are required to display this logo on all of their products for resale. Keep in wind: No seal, no deal!
How does shopping with licensed
vendors benefit AOII?
8% of each purchase you make from a licensed vendor is returned to the Fraternity as a royalty for use of the AOII marks.

ToDragma [Fall2005]
GREEK LICENSED PRODUCT
What can you do to support AOII's licensing program?
• Start small: Look for the Greek Licensed Product seal and purchase only those items when shopping for Greek gear.
• Use licensed vendors for special event supplies and
I H
other merchandise. Many licensed vendors can be
reached online and will work closely with you to get your project complete by your deadline.
• Encourage your local screen printers and other vendors to apply to be licensed with Alpha Omicron Pi. Once the agreement is approved, you can continue working with them.
• Notify International Headquarters if vendors are soliciting AOII merchandise in your area that isn't licensed. The only way to protect our marks is to take action now.
If you would like more information about AOII's licensing program, or to view a list of licensed vendors,please visit wwwgreeklicensing.com. The site will be updated frequentlg, as the Fraternity roster of licensed vendors continues to grow.


A Closer Look at Royalties
Assume that hypothetical AOII chapter Alpha Alpha orders all their tee shirts for a year from their local screen printer, Illegal Vendor, Inc. Alpha Alpha has 75 initiated members and took a new member class of 25 so they are ordering for too women throughout the year.
Alpha Alpha orders Bid Day jerseys for each of their 25 new mem- bers at $25.00 each. For Sisterhood Retreat, each member orders a tee shirt. Assuming Alpha Alpha has two social events and approximately seventy-five attendants buy a shirt for themselves and their dates, it yields 300 shirts at $8.00 each. For Fall Formal, seventy-five members attend and buy shirts for themselves and for dates. Finally, they participate in a Greek event and need shirts for everyone in the chapter.
Have you heard about GreekQuote?
Affinity Marketing Consultants has teamed up with officially licensed vendors to bring you unprecedented access to high- quality custom products for your next chapter function or event. By accessing greeklicensing.com, a member can easily view a listing o f licensed AOII vendors. A t the top corner o f the page, there is an icon for GreekQuote. Here, you can search for apparel or party favors from all Alpha Omicron Pi licensed vendors.
After completing a few quick, simple steps, vendors will have 48 hours to bid on your project! It's as easy as 1- 2 - 3!
Step 1: Product Information. Enter the specifics of your order including quantity and the type of apparel or party favor for which you would like quotes.
Step 2: Design. Enter information about your t-shirt design or artwork. You can submit your own image or vendors can work with you to create the artwork.
Step 3: Contact Information. After you have entered your strictly confidential information, licensed vendors will begin competing for your business.
There is absolutely no obligation to order. Your contact information will be given to the vendor only if you accept the bid. This service is not limited to our chapters. Individual members are also wel- come to use GreekQuote.
Get your tee shirts in a hurry, get free shipping, and most importantly get reduced rates! You never know what kind of a deal you can get
at GreekQuote and all from AOII licensed vendors.

What isyour chapter's
best hands- on project or craft activity?
Alpha Phi
Florida State U
Alpha Phi made decora- tive pens to give to resi- dents in nursing homes last year.
Alpha Psi
Bowling Green St. U
The best craft activity that our chapter has par- ticipated in was making lace-up pandas for chil- dren who have arthritis. They are made of felt and we used it as our craft for the philanthropy round of recruitment.
Alpha Theta
Coe College
The Alpha Theta
chapter had a COR/ Philanthrophy where we made Halloween cards for kids in the children's' ward at local hospitals
in our city. We had a
lot of fun bonding and getting to know other girls while making cards for a worthy cause.
Beta Phi
Indiana U
The best hands-on activity that Beta Phi has participated in recently involved mak- ing huge room posters to be hung up during recruitment. Each room created a poster togeth- er and the most creative poster won a prize.
We had posters with
movie themes, "Friends" themes, and so many more! They included pictures of the women in each room along with fun decorations.
k < : 'l
U ofToronto
During formal recruit- ment our philanthropic- event consisted of making and creating 'Panda Packs'. Panda packs are socks filled with rice
and then decorated as pandas. The panda packs can be heated up or put in the freezer to be used as hot and cold relief for arthritis! It was a great way to get crafty while meeting potential new members.
Chi Delta
U ofColorado
Last spring, we had an Earth Day philanthropy event with local, under- privileged children. W e spent an entire day paint- ing pots, planting seeds, and playing basketball. We had a great time and the children did too. It was a great opportunity to give back to the com- munity.
Clii Epsilon
The Ohio State U
Our chapter recently participated in Rock the Block. It is a university sponsored event where
the university buses people to different chari- ties to volunteer for the day or to cleanup around campus. Our chapter had fun while helping others.
Chi Lambda
U ofEvansville
Our chapter recently participated in our univer- sity's homecoming parade. Along with the gentlemen of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, our chapter built a float illustrating the theme
"still kickin' after all these years", commemorating the university's 150th anni- versary. O n an 8x10" flat bed. we fashioned a giant soccer ball with a movable kicking leg. Along with the float, 15 of our sisters painted a banner with three kicking pandas in a chorus line.
ChiPsi
CA Polytechnic St. U
For Philanthropy Day during Fall Recruitment we decorated teddy bears for the Ronald McDonald House. We brought litde stuffed bears and then made outfits for them like 80s Bear, Ballerina Bear and Beach Bear.
Chi Theta
Northeastern St. U
The best craft activity Chi Theta Chapter has done as of late is to make Christmas cards
Alpha Chi
Western Kentucky U
For Homecoming 2004, Alpha Chi got crafty with its banner and float. The theme was "Big Red's Birthday Bash" because it was the 25th anniversary. With lots of tissue paper, felt and other needed sup- plies, the banner and float were a huge success! Go Alpha Chi!
Alpha Delta
U ofAlabama
Each month our chapter volunteers at the Salvation Army to serve dinner. This is a very moving experience that greatly changes one's outlook on life. Giving back to the community makes us realize how fortunate we are and how greatly we
are blessed. It also teaches us to see the good in everyone.
Alpha Gamma
Washington St U
Our chapter recently participated in "Up Til Dawn" which is a univer- sity wide philanthropy that benefits the St. Jude's Children Hospital. During this philanthropy a group of girls wrote let- ters to people they know asking them to donate money. It was for a good cause and was a nice sisterhood event.
