Pledges install pride The new members of Delta Nu-B Chapter got together one Saturday to complete a greatly needed and appreciated pledge project. They pooled their resources and devoted an afternoon to recarpeting the dining room and front steps of the house. The parents of one of the new members, Michelle Gray, own a car· peting business and were able to get padding and carpet at a reduced rate and offered time, tools and e xpertise to oversee the project. The entire pledge class was on hand to tear up the worn , stained car· pet and lay down the new padding and carpeting . The chapter hopes that by giving the house a fresh , clean look , it will attract and enhance the interest of all rushees. Future improvements in · elude new blinds for the sliding glass doors and pa inting AEA letters on the garage door. Jan Marie Malicki

Rainbow brightens rush September is always a busy month for the Delta Upsilon Chapter. It started off with a very successful rush . The first night, an all -sorority party was held so that rushees could learn more about the Greek system. The second night , the Alpha Sigs had a "Rainbow Rush Party" that featured a slide show and display tables on the four aims. The third night, several skits had the theme , "A Walk Down Memory Lane. " A candle cere· mony was held during the preference party on the last night of rush . After all of the hard work put into rush, members got to know the new pledges at a retreat. Alyssa Blakelock

Rush goes Hawaiian The Delta Chi Chapter had a suc· cessful fall rush with the theme of " Hawai ian Luau ." Before rush officially begins, there is a pre· rus h party to familiarize wome n with Greek life on campus without the obligation to rush . For ~X ' s Hawa iian luau pre-rush party, everyone dressed in their best Hawaiian outfit. The house was trans· formed into an authentic Hawaiian home, including a grass hut and an aloha sign . Refreshments were a mocktail made from pineapple, or· ange and banana juices mixed with grenadine and topped with an urn· brella and fresh fruit with a dip in a hollowed pineapple. Once rush officially began , the chapter carried out the pre·rush Hawaiian theme as much as possible. Each member wore a name tag shaped and decorated as a pineapple . One of the skits , called the "S.S . Alpha Sig," involved five women lost on an island when a storm overtook the S .S . Alpha Sig . A helpful witchdoctor told them about sister· hood on Alpha Sigma Alpha island and convinced them to go Greek. Thanks to the leadership and hard work of rush chairman Marcie Shaffer, fall rush was a success. Marie Spengel THE PHOENIX OF ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA
