Out to the movies for rush The Epsilon Beta Chapter began an exciting fall semester with a successful rush . " Picture Yourself" was the overall theme for rush. Each party had a movie theme . The first party was " Pretty in Pink ," second party "AEA, Red , White and You ," third party "Casablanca" and fourth "The Sound of Music." Members worked for more than two weeks and then went straight into informal rush . The pledges then began working on their many activities. These included a pledge dance , "Dance of the Decades ," held in November. To raise money, pledges and members sold balloons for Sweetest Day. Homecoming , which fell on Hal loween , was also exc iting . One member , Kim Gerwerth, ran for homecoming queen . Returning alumnae were treated to a slide show fea turing slides from when they were undergraduates and then a luncheon before the football game . At the end of the semester, whil e busily study ing for final exams , members went caroling in area nursing homes . Christine Reising

Townhouse unites chapter This year, something unique happened to the Epsilon Eta Chapter. For the first time in its three-year e x路 istence , five members moved into a chapter townhouse . The house has provided a private setting for meetings and a place where all members are welcome anytime. The house has not only provided a focal point for the chapter , but has made the campus community more aware of AEA. The townhouse has supplied a new dimens ion to the chapter and a new sense of togetherness for the members . Cynthia Stokes

into a second childhood du ring fall rush week . The second rush party was entitled "Alpha Sig Candyland." There were visions of sugar-plums dancing in members' heads , giant gingerbread men and life-size candy canes as far as the eye could see. It was a kid 's dream come true. You d idn't have to be six to enjoy the fun . Members put awa y their adult lives and lived out a fantasy, at least for an hour or so . Me mbers started by d ressing the part in coveralls , kiddie faces, Jots of lace and bows. All membe rs had to do was have fun and get the rushees to join in . The party featured songs and a game, "Alpha S ig Candyland ," wit h informat ion about Alpha Sig on eve ry turn . The room was filled with lots of chatter, the rushees were put at ease by the light style of the party . Everyone mixed and mingled and met lots of people . Members worked and had fun , but eventually the party was over and it was time to go back to being grownups . But . . . we can always go back another time. Leslie C. Huey

ful jams and Jots of p izza made this beach pa rty a success. The rushees were enthusiast ic , and the memb e rs of Epsilon Lambda learned much about each rushee in a short tim e because of the informal and re laxed sett ing . The s uccess of the Surfin' AEA rus h party proved to each Eps ilon Lambda mem be r that AEA is an establis hed so rori ty on campus . Lisa Sculco
