Nu Lambda members present on May 8th smile at having AOll return to the U.S.C. campus.
The University of Southern California is certainly
one of the nation's foremost institutions of higher learn-
ing. U.S.C. began with 53 students in 1880; fall enroll-
ment in 1975 reached 15,950 full-time students and
8,130 part-time students. I t is the oldest major inde-
pendent nonsectarian coeducational university in the
West. Land f o r the university's beginning was donated
by a Catholic, a Jew and a Protestant.
The park-dotted campus now encompasses 150 acres,
in addition to other off-campus facilities. Greeks at
U.S.C. are housed primarily along one street, referred
to as "The Row." A O I I w i l l rejoin those houses this
While academic offerings at U.S.C. are among the

AOII Wants You to Send
It is expected that, as college women, chapters will make
reasonable, mature judgments. But how can alumnae help?
Supply rushee information! Chapters are no longer re-
quired to obtain recommendations on rushees before pledg-
ing, but the information available from alumnae is still
invaluable, for the chapter and for the rushee.
Knowledge of the rushee can only help in chapter de-
cisions, since one complaint is that rush is "never enough
time" to really get to know someone. A chapter implement-
ing this information can conduct an even more personal
rush. With rush numbers on the rise, this is increasingly
difficult to do. And no rushee enjoys feeling like a number
rather than a real person!
What are we looking for in a rushee? We are looking
for the future of Alpha Omicron Pi. We are looking for
positive women—those who do, those who give, those who
care. Do you know a young woman like that? Then let
our chapters know—use the information form on page 19
in this issue!
