A homecoming tradition

Parties add up to success

Beta Lambda Chapter is in the process of updating and renewing alumnae contact. Throughout the summer, letters were sent, and many responses were received concerning an interest in alumnae activities. A newly organized alumnae chapter has a steadily increasing membership. An alumnae tea was held to coincide with homecoming activities. The practice of a homecoming tea is a continuation of an old tradition of the previous Sigma Laurel Chapter. Since the onset of the fall semester Beta Lambda alums have been especially active. Many attended rush activities, while others have volunteered their services to participate on the newly formed advisory board. Keri Eldridge

The pledges of the Beta Mu Chapter had a very busy fall organizing their four aim projects. For their social project, they rented movies and made popcorn. Members and pledges divided up into two teams and played volleyball to achieve their physical aim. For their intellectual project, the pledges invited the president of the university to speak on the importance of Greeks on campus. The spiritual project was an address by a minister on the issue of morals for college women . Sandra Sanders
