In 1989, Alpha Sigma Tau's National Council approved a new logo and a new expansion publicity theme, " Share the Magic. " Our new logo will be phased in over the next year; it reflects the design of a woman with the wind in her face as if she is pursuing new ventures. As we enter the 1990s, we feel this is an appropriate image!

Alpha Sigma Tau Celebrates 90 Year Anniversary by Patricia L. Nayle , National President

Let us take time at our 90th anniversary to recall our beginning and how we have proceeded to our present existence. To assist us in recalling our beginning, let us catch a ride on a shooting star, a symbol of our existence, to another time. All Aboard!! To help generate the energy to move this vehicle through time , let us concentrate and dream of what life would be like in 1899. As we come out of the dream , we see our shooting star has traveled to the community of Ypsilanti, Michigan , where it stops at the home of Ruby Pratt. As we peer through the window , we see a group of young women from Michigan State Normal College talking about the organizing of a local club .. . a sorority. The faces of the women are not too familiar to us , but as we listen to the conversation which breathes excitement, enthusiasm , and fellowship among them , we find the names sound familiar ... Helene Rice , Adriance Rice, Eva O 'Keefe , Hariett Marx, May Gephart, Mayene Tracy, Mable Chase, and Ruth Dutcher. Yes, these are the eight young women who established Alpha Sigma Tau . Our founders wrote a paragraph in their College Yearbook to share the aims and thoughts of its sorority at that time , as follows : " Its aim is, first of all , social and literary culture, but we count not least among the results obtained, the bonds of sympathy among its members, which we trust will prove something more than a pleasant memory, when we leave our Alma mater ... " From its beginning, our founding sisters were guided by Effie Polyhamus Lyman , who served as adviser to the Alpha Sigma Tau group . Her leadership was instrumental in organizing additional chapters so that Alpha Sigma Tau might become national. Another woman who had an influence on the future development of Alpha Sigma Tau was Ada A. Norton . Miss Norton was a math ematics instructor at Michigan State Normal College, and as a patroness for the sorority, she wrote much of our sorority ritual. She also directed our first national convention . As our shooting star takes off from Ypsilanti , Michigan and journeys through the span of 25 years we find that the group of women known as Alpha Sigma Tau passed its values and ideals to other young women . As a result of our founder 's efforts, Beta , Gamma, Delta , Epsilon , Zeta, Theta and Iota Chapters were established . With the devotion of the women in our chapters , nationalization became a reality for Alpha Sigma Tau in 1925. At the time , the requirements to become a part of the national organization of the Association of Education 8

Sororities were 1) at least five collegiate chapters; 2) the publication of a magazine; and 3) a national convention. The first national convention , held in Detroit in 1925 with 49 women present to conduct business was an exciting time for our sisters. While our shooting star travels through time , we recall the words of one of the Alpha Chapter delegates in attendance at the first convention . Her words show strongly how she and others envisioned that Alpha Sigma Tau would move forward ... " Perhaps it is a little early for predictions or prophesies. Perhaps the future of Alpha Sigma Tau as a national sorority is still in question in the minds of some. But to those who were present and who had the chance to witness this fraternity feeling , to take account of the quality membership which the sorority boasts and to reckon the amount of work accomplished by since efforts- in the minds of these people, there is no question as to the future of Alpha Sigma Tau. " What was the future of this organization? Let us journey forward to see what the sorority accomplished in the next 50 years. As Alpha Sigma Tau continued to add more collegiate chapters to its membership rolls , it also continued to adopt new ideas, change current programs and procedures, and achieve new and far reaching goals. In 1936 our first Central Office was established to house sorority materials and to serve as a main office. In 1936 Carrie Washburne Staehle was beginning her third year as National President; she continued to serve as such until 1949. During her years of leadership, the sorority was divided into districts with a president in charge of each district; much sorority literature was published ; and a national social service program had been implemented. As we continue to ride our star onward, we pass over the period of history that affected all Americans ... World War II. On our journey forward , we stop to view the celebration of our 50th anniversary, with the theme " hold high the torch ." This theme was befitting because of the many achievements in sorority development; it marked the turning point of our national life , as we had become a member of the National Panhellenic Conference . Another accomplishment was the acceptance of national philanthropic programs . One in particular was Pine Mountain Settlement School, a boarding school located in Harlan County, Kentucky. Through the year , as Alpha Sigma Tau made progress, so did Pine Mountain . Our initial support of Pine Mountain began in 1945 and has continued until today. Onward, our shooting star travels to th 1950 . t THE ANCHOR/Spring 1990

visit Mary Alice Sellers Peterson, our 5th National President. Prior to serving as president, Mrs. Peterson was responsible for the writing of the Creed, and the meaning of the symbols on the Sorority shield. Miss Elizabeth Wilson followed in Mrs . Peterson's footsteps and served as National President from 1964-1972. In one of her convention addresses , Miss Wilson closed with the fol lowing words . .. " You , who are here today, will write the story of Alpha Sigma Tau for the coming decade . Let us hope that each of you will find the way to contribute your share, remembering the words of Dag Hammarskjold, 'you have not done enough , so long as it is still possible that you have something of value to contribute.' " As we all board our shooting star, we find our compass is approaching the 1970's when Lenore Seibel King (Psi) better known as " Sybil " took office as National President. So much was accomplished under her strong leadership from 1972- 1984 ... which included the publishing of the first HISTORY OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU ; the reorganization of the national structure as we know it today; the purchase of insurance coverage to meet our sorority's needs; and the formation of a National Foundation to accept tax deductible donations to secure our financial future . One of the most historical moments to date was the rotation of Alpha Sigma Tau on the National Panhellenic Conference Executive Committee in 1979. At that

time, Cynthia Peckhart McCrory (Alpha Alpha) went through the three chairs to become Chairman of NPC in 1983. This honor only comes to a national soro rity every 52 years. Now our shooting star has come back to the future , or is it the present? At the present time , I am pleased to report that accessibility to sorority members has been made simpler through the purchase of a computer and several terminals . The national organization continues to emphasize new concepts in fraternity programming and is working on a publicity campaign . Our fin ancial future is improving yearly as alumnae give support to the AST National Foundation , with scholarships established in the last few years to assist worthy collegiate and alumnae sisters in pursuit of their educational goals . This journey back in time was not meant to serve as a history lesson , but to serve as a reminder of what has been accomplished through the initial interest of eight women , our Founders. As Elizabeth Wilson , the 6th National President, shared in one of her closing addresses , you and I will be the sisters responsible for writing the history of Alpha Sigma Tau and creating what accomplishments we will fulfill ahead of us. If each of us were to contribute $5 .00 or 5 hours to our sorority every week , the work we could accomplish together would make our founding sisters proud of their creation of Alpha Sigma Tau .

1989 NPC Biennial Meeting

1989 National Panhellenic Council Nati onal Presidents.

Five alumnae from Alpha Sigma Tau were present for the sessions and activities which surrounded the 1989 NPC Biennium meeting held November 1-5, 1989 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Cynthia McCrory, NPC Delegate, led our national delegation of Carolyn Alexander, Janet Dodson , and Patricia Nayle in the various business sessions attended. At the same time , Sybil King , National Headquarters Administrator , was in attendance with other NPC representatives for the Central Office Executives sessions. Prior to the business sessions of the National Panhellenic Conference, members of the delegation met in their respective meetings .... Cynthia in the Advisory Committee, with Janet in the College Panhellenic meetings, with Carolyn in Alumnae Panhellenic meetings and Patricia in the National Presidents meeting . The positive interaction between the 26 member groups in these various meetings is a proud example of the fraternal bonds we experience as members of women 's fraternities and sororities . The business sessions were filled with many transactions including the review and passage of over 40 resolutions affecting rush rules , quota systems, the NPC central office operations, programming , all of which will 10

impact college and alumnae panhellenics. One of the biggest events was the passage of a resolution to approve the printing of the 12th edition of the NPC Man ual of Information with numerous revisions made in the structure of the publication . Cynthia McCrory, our NPC delegate , was instrumental in the revisions of this publication since she served for the past two years as Chairman of the Publications Committee responsible for this huge undertaking . Another special event occurred which made all Alpha Sigma Tau sisters proud . A luncheon was held to recognize Minnie Mae Prescott's contributions and many years of Panhellenic service to her sorority Kappa Delta. During the program , Kappa Delta bestowed the honor of the Order of the Diamond on the past Chairmen of the National Panhellenic Conference. Cynthia McCrory, AST's past Chairman, received this prestigous honor for outstanding and dedicated service to the Panhellenic world . Congratulations Cynthia , we are very proud of you. Another meeting of the National Panhellenic Conference ended with changes to benefit and strengthen our member groups and a continued commitment to the alues and goals of the 26 women 's fraternitie .

THE ANCHOR/Spring 1990

Alumnae INDIANAPOLIS Explores Campus Problems Because of so much attention with hazing and alcohol problems on campus today, Indianapolis centered two meetings around these issues . In October, the group met at the home of Cheryl Moore and viewed a video on fraternity hazing followed by a group discussion .The topic was explored again at the November meeting with a speaker. Guest speaker at the June meeting at the home of Becky Appleman was Rita Rose, president of the Annette Fucinello Fan Club. Rita started the fan club while she was in high school. For over 20 years she has continued to publish a newsletter to fan club members and periodically the club holds conventions around the country. Since many Indianapolis alumnae grew up with the Mickey Mouse Club, they became immersed in her pictures, scrapbooks and memorabilia. The " 60's Beach party" had hot dogs, hamburgers and-rain! The holidays were celebrated at the home of Becky Appleman with a favorite Christmas recipe pitch-in and gift exchange. Current ite ms were sold to support the social service project. A Saturday morning brunch provided a good start for the summer board meeting in August at the home of Barbara Heeb. After election of officers, the calendar of events for the remainder of 1989 was completed. The September meeting at the home of Pan Legg provided for the installation of the new offi cers and initiation of Pamela Ruch . -Gloria J. Hasler

LEHIGH VALLEY Helps Us Expand The Lehigh Valley Alumnae Club has helped establish the new collegiate chapter at Kutztown University. Two collegiate members then attended the October alumnae meeting to tell alum nae more about themselves and to meet more alumnae . The October meeting also featured a Chinese auction .

NORTHERN VIRGINIA Thinks 80 and 90 The array of appetizers , casseroles, vegetables , salads and desserts which graced the serving table at the September meeting made even the most finicky ea ters happy! Twenty -four wom en showed up at Mary Early's home for this first meeting of the year. Martha Jones co-hosted the potluck supper. The business part of the gathering concerned the chapter's responsibil ities for the 1990 Convention to be held in Richmond, Virginia . President Lucia Baco n was made chairlady of the Queen 's Luncheon. Charlotte Floyd's lovely home, with its view of Washington , D.C. just across the Potomac, was the setting for the October meeting . A speaker from the local Citizens Against Crime group discussed Personal Assault Crime: Avoidance and Survival. Th e presentation was very good as well as informative. On November 12th, Mary Louise Doyle became the chapter's second octogenarian. A su rprise party for her included among the guests the following Alpha Sigma Tau sis te rs : Charlotte Floyd , Meda Ray Sewell, Mary Early and Mary Charles Ashby. Dorothy Gates , the other octogenarian , was unable to attend . Giving Santa Claus a hand kept all members busy much of the December meeting hosted by Leah Lowe and Vicki Hoffman. Everyone brought items suitable for teenage girls and stockings were filled . The recipients-to-be are girls temporarily under the supervision of the Residentia l Youth Services of Fairfax

City. Counselling and rehabilitation is given the girls and then they are returned home, to a foster home, or in some cases adopted. Needless to say, the Christmas goodies and decorations added to the spirit of the Yuletide season! Instead of the usual exchange of Christmas ornaments with each other this year, Leah Lowe, Panhellenic delegate, suggested that the money usually spent should be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. This suggestion was carried out. The NVA's are adding a bit of variety to their usual routine. Firstly, Lucia Bacon and Carole Mooney are cooperating to put out a monthly information letter which is mailed to all members. It contains directions to the next meeting place, special business to be considered, reminders , and special bits of news . Secondly , a Secret Pal game is active . Names were drawn in June and members are trying to do little things for our secret pals. Come spring, we will reveal our identities! Thirdly, members are collecting coupons from Betty Crocker produ cts , Campbell soup labels and Pepperidge Farm UPC codes to aid the Living Waters Christian School in Kentucky. - Mary Louise Doyle

This was a big step for our small campus in recognizing the importance of Greeks at SSU and it may even become a helpful Rush tool. We were again busy with social service projects this semester. We continued visiting our adopted grandfather , Loren Wells , at the Salisbury Nursing home and assisted the Salisbury Jaycees with their haunted house by acting as guides and security. Along with Pi Lambda Phi fraternity , we participated in the annual Barn Dance at Robin Hill Pumpkin Farm to raise money for the Cerebal Palsey organization . And, of course, no semester would be complete without fundraisers . During finals week we kept up a chapter tradition by selling survival kits to help our fellow collegiates through the hectic time .

Michigan Technological University The Beta Xi chapter held a regional leadership workshop for the first time . Breakfast got sisters off to a good start for a day full of workshops, such as rush , financial and membership development. Dinner was relaxing at the Onigaming Supper Club, followed by a rededication ceremony. We were ready when Homecoming rolled around , complete with its hobo theme. We kicked up our heels at the annual dance , despite our tattered trenchcoats and tacky ties . We rode in Delta Sigma Phi 's " hobo" car the next morning , or should we say we pushed it? As in the past, sisters volunteered to assist Dial Help and Panhellenic's blood drive. We also voted to move our chapter meetings to another night so that we could benefit from an anti -hazing and alcohol awareness seminars. Throughout the term , sisters participated in intramural sports , such as ice hockey and wallyball. We also rang bells for the Salvation Army. Beta Xi will celebrate our 10-year anniversary with a reunion Aug . 31 - Sept. 3 .

Beta Nu

Bloomsburg University, PA Fall '89 was an exciting semester for Beta Nu . We started out with a successful rush using the theme " Cruise Along with AST. " Congratulations to our thirteen new sisters. Our calendar was filled with a variety of events ranging from a fundrai er at Dorney Park to a reunion with the Beta Epsilon chapter. Other event included a wine and cheese party for our par nt .

Beta Tau

Lowell University, MA Beta Tau began our fall with new sisters Josephine LaFrenier, Becky Leno and Joanie Ashworth after an active rush. During Family Night, we played Family Feud with our families. Our next rush was a p.j. party, where we told stories about our favorite stuffed animals. Alumnae helped us with rush with a Halloween party. In October all sorority members were invited to our house for a Sorority Letter Day. We had lots of fun and spent lots of money on the fraternity sportswear. We sold raffle tickets for a gift certificate at Jimmy's II Restaurant. Part of the proceeds went to purchase a turkey for a needy family. District President Heidi Marie Bliss visited for a weekend in October. We discussed our experience in AST and celebrated Founders Day after a nice dinner . Sister Terri Belanger was married Oct. 28. Several sisters were in her wedding party and many more attended . Sisters also celebrated Halloween . We dressed in costumes, and delivered decorated pumpkins to children at St. John 's Hospital. The following week, 19 sisters and alumnae packed into five cars and drove to Lock Haven University to attend a regional leadership workshop. The drive took eight hours and was worth every minute of it. Music chairperson Joanie Ashworth composed the words and music to a song she named " Share the Magic ," which won the Best Song Award.路 -Kimberly Credit

Beta Chi

Ferris State College, MI Beta Ch i's first haunted house will not be their last. Together with Pi Lambda Phi and Domino's Pizza , we were impressed to draw such a large crowd . Word of mouth helped draw the college students , and advertisements in pizza cartons drew community ghoul seekers. A substantial amount of our $500 por-

tion will be sent to the Pine Mountain Settlement. Sisters got serious for Homecoming 's " Just Clowning Around " theme. We were busy building a float with Delta Sigma Phi and competing in events such as the grease pole climb and Ferris 500. Sisters ran for first place in the threelegged race. Beta Chi chose a five-week period to concentrate on social service . During week one , they made donations to W.I.S.E. , a shelter for battered women and children. In week two, we sponsored a blood drive, and week three , we delivered cards to departmental heads on campus for Boss' Day. Week four featured our haunted house, and during the final week we delivered our decorated pumpkins to patients spending Halloween in Mecosta Hospital. Greeks teamed up with other campus organizations to sponsor a " Whistle Stop" program to make people aware of, then how to help prevent on-campus rape . Skits creatively exemplified that " no" means no . Plans are in the works for our fiveyear anniversary celebration . At this time, we are trying to record and recognize those who have shaped our great chapter. -Kelly Collins

Gamma Alpha

Rio Grane College, OH The Gamma Alpha chapter started the year off rocking with our annual 100-hour Rock-a-thon to benefit Pine Mountain Settlement School. The year proceeded to roll along with Bob Evans Farm Festival. This annual event draws people from all around the country for a weekend filled with entertainment. We enjoyed a special rededication ceremony as well as a fun -filled Founders Day, during which we went on a hayride. Our annual dance at the beginning of the year was a great success. A special closeness was felt among the sisters that night. Several fundraisers were held , such as the raffle of a gas grill. Proceeds went to the Leukemia Foundation in the memory of a local fraternity brother. - Mary Ann Crago

Gamma Beta

Lake Superior State College, MI The sisters of Gamma Beta at Lake Superior have been busy. We only have

seven active members, but that does not stop or keep us down . After rushing all fall , we have a pledge class of three for the winter term . We will continue to rush and hope to have 15 active members by the fall. Sisterhood bonds grew stronger after a closed weekend with our district president, Deborah Ullenius. Sorority growth and development were at a high point and we increased our sense of what Alpha Sigma Tau and sisterhood means to each one of us . Three sisters attended a regional leadership workshop at Beta Xi in Hough ton , MI. We would like to thank other chapters for sharing great ideas for rush and pledge activities . Gamma Beta is active in intramural sports. We play volleyball and broomball , and will enter co-ed competition in these sports . Upcoming events we look forward to are Winter Carnival , our annual Rock-athan and Yellow Rose Cotillion . - Michelle Swartz

Gamma Gamma

Livingston University, AL The Adopt-A-Mile program is one of great importance to the citizens of Livingston as well as to our environment. Gamma Gamma is proud to work to clean our stretch of roadway. Founders Day was celebrated at the Cotton Patch restaurant in Eutaw, AL. Special tribute was paid to graduating sister Ellyson Davis. A former sorority president, she helped start our chapter. Homecoming activities kicked off the week of Oct. 16. Sisters wore the colors of the Livingston Tigers on Red and White Day. Spirit blazed at the bonfire and in our posters hung around campus, which won us the Spirit Stick. Our float in the theme of " Sink the Statesman" wasn 't our only entry in the parade, as Christi Best was named Pledge Sweetheart and Ann Martin , first alternate to the queen . Our social service project involved matching grant money for the Julia Tutwiler Library. Gamma Gamma was the only organization on campus asked to help fundraising efforts, with a raffle to promote faculty support. We participated in numerous activities and events , including a G.Q . Halloween party , a seminar on eating disorders , Panhellenic brunch and Powder Puff Football. All our efforts and hard work has paid off for the sorority. We have a good group of pledges and a growing (continued on page 30)


Gamma Theta Sisterhood is contagious. If you don 't believe that , look at the map in the Pledgebook and you will see dots all over Pennsylvania (but it's not measles) . Gamma Theta Colony became the thirteenth currently active Alpha Sigma Tau Chapter in Pennsylvania on November 18, 1989. (And there are two more colonies-at York College and Kutztown University-which will be installed in 1990.) Gamma Theta Chapter is located on the campus of Penn State University's Berhrend College in Erie, PA . When the membership of the interest group reached twenty-five, arrangements were made for them to have the formal expansion presentation . Because of the contagious nature of Alpha Sigma Tau, it was determined that the Alpha Tau Chapter at Edinboro State College, led by their adviser, Elaine Bercik, would celebrate Founder's Day with the women from Berhend College and show them the slides and the sisterhood. It worked! They were exposed and by April 15, 1989 the infection had spread to the whole group at their Ribbon Pledging ceremony . Jean McNamara , Director of Expansion ; Sally Wales , Director of Alumnae; and Anne Gruber, National Colony Adviser joined the colony members for breakfast on campus. There were already two carriers of the AST " bug " on the campus. Meg Machinski was a transfer student from Alpha Tau Chapter and was instrumental in organizing the events of the training weekend. Susan Erickson who had transferred from the Alpha Omicron Chapter at Clarion University heard rumors about the AST " bug" and soon became the Pledge Director for the colony. What an asset she was to the learning process! On Sunday , April 16, 1989 the colony was Pin Pledged and met two of the women from the Erie Alumnae Chapter who would become their advisers. Once you have been infected by AST, you are a lifetime carrier. That is proved time and again by Norma Black, Adviser, and Deborah Carter, Assistant Chapter Adviser. They were there for the colony in many many ways and along with Cynthia Hawes, Chapter Consultant , will be there for years to come! After the weekend of training was completed the colony began making plans for their summer and fall activi ties. They got together and planned a Rush Program which began on August 29 and culminated in the Pin Pledging of seven pledges on September 18. The contagiousness of AST continued! Just about that time Anne Gruber returned to the


campus to see how the activities were progressing. With a glowing report to the National President, Patricia Nayle, she was able to recommend that plans for initiation be made. In order to fulfill the requirements for initiation, the Gamma Theta Colony had a car wash as a fundraiser , participated in blood drive as a local social service project, viewed the Pine Mountain slides, attended the Alpha Tau Founder's Day celebration (will it become a tradition?), had socials with fraternities , and planned their installation celebration . In between those activities they had their pledge meetings, carried out sorority business, and learned all the AST facts so they could understand their disease. November 18, 1989 was not what was expected. It was the day set aside for initiation and sisters from near and far were expected! Our President, Patricia Nayle, from Houston was sorry she didn ' t bring her camera, but those who had to drive were dismayed by the blizzard conditions of that morning . Those who had arrived Friday evening were able to travel the short distance to the community center for the initiation service, but the sisters coming from Edinboro were unable to come that day. What a disappointment. There were two sisters from Alpha Omicron and two from Alpha Tau Chapters who had stayed with family in Erie the night before so they were able to represent their chapters . Patricia Nayle , Jean McNamara, Sally Wales , Anne Gruber, Norma Black , Deborah Carter and Cynthia Hawes served as the officers at the initiation ceremony. Patricia Nichols, President of the Buffalo Alumnae Chapter and two others from Buffalo shared in the initiation and attended the installation banquet. The Installation Banquet was held at the Sunset Inn and was attended by parents, family members, dates, representatives from other campus organizations and the sisters who were at the initiation ceremony. David Shields, Assistant Dean of Student Services represented the administration as the newly initiated chapter was presented to the college. Patricia Nayle reviewed the history of Alpha Sigma Tau in her Keynote Address . Gifts were given as on any birthday and the evening ended with Jean McNamara leading the traditional Candlelighting Ceremony. Since Alpha Sigma Tau is so contagious and so many members of the Gamma Theta Chapter already attend classes on Penn State's main campu and other are planning to transfer , how long before AST will be caught in State College, PA?

Gamma Eta There 's another yellow rose in Texas. Beta Theta Chapter at St. Mary's University in San Antonio has welcomed a new rosebud to their state. As Alpha Sigma Tau continues to expand to new campuses across the country, it also continues to attract women with diverse backgrounds and goals. Northwood Institute in Cedar Hill , Texas (in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex) is the home of Gamma Eta Chapter. Women attending Northwood Institute are pursuing careers in advertising, different areas of automotive management, fashion marketing and merchandising, business management, or hotel and restaurant management. These women make up about one fourth of the 400 person student body . The members of the chapter are from The Netherlands, the Bahamas, Al berta and Ontario , Canada, as well as Michigan , New York, Texas and Oklahoma. In 1981 Sigma Tau was established as a fashion club on Northwood Institute 's campus. Its purpose was a combination of service to the campus and community through fashion shows and booster activities and social through campus parties for the student body. In the fall of 1987 the membership began to look for something more. They wanted to become a part of a National Sorority. Eta District President, Ruth Kielczewski , visited the campus in the spring of 1988 to tell them all about Alpha Sigma Tau and the opportunities available to them as members . Understanding the colonization process, the petition was signed and plans were underway to become pledges of Alpha Sigma Tau . On October 16, 1988 their dream started to come true. After a weekend of training the Pin Pledging Service was conducted by Patricia Nayle, National President , Mary Yeatman, National Colony Adviser and THE ANCHOR/Spring 1990

Susan Smith , local Colony Adviser and Dallas Alumnae President. Now there were programs to plan, names and dates to remember and activities to organize. Gamma Eta's biggest obstacle they soon found was membership . On a campus with less than 100 women students, how can a sorority reach a membership of twenty-five as required by Alpha Sigma Tau? Well , it didn 't happen right away and it will take special effort each year to reach and maintain that goal. But if enthusiasm and determination can be a substitute for numbers, the sisters of Northwood Institute will become an outstanding chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. In the fall of 1989 the sisters of Gamma Eta Colony sponsored their second annual Halloween Bash . They transformed the Lambert Commons into a haunted house lit by jack-o-lanterns and invited the whole campus to come in costume. Each year they also sponsor a Valentine's dance for the campus . Dean of Students, Craig Root, depends on the sorority to do much of the social planning for the campus. In the busy world of college life Gamma Eta was able to successfully combine two projects . At their Halloween Bash they were able to collect six bags of groceries for the needy by having admission by $1 plus a canned good thus fulfilling their social service requirement for the term . Founder's Day was celebrated with the Dallas Alumnae Chapter. That's when they met their new adviser, Shawna Roberts. Susan Smith who had served as their adviser for the first year has become Susan Walton and will now be their Chapter Consultant (Congratulations Susan and Roger!) A faculty member, Elaine Brazell , is also an adviser and took her initiation vows with the colony members . (continued on page 24)


(continued from page 23)

The initiation service was held in Lambert Commons on Saturday, January 20, 1990. The installing officers were Patricia Nayle, National President, Mary Charles Ashby, Director of Collegiate Chapters, Ruth Kielczewski , Eta District President, Anne Gruber, National Colony Adviser , and Susan Smith , Shawna Roberts and Jeanette Waldrop , Dallas Alumnae. That evening parents, dates and guests were welcomed by Mistress of Ceremonies , Vicki Cawthon , Chapter President, as the new sisters were installed as a chapter and celebrated

the day's events . Miss Nayle 's keynote address was fol lowed by presentation of the chapter to the college. The highlight of the evening for the Gamma Eta Chapter was the presentation of gifts to them . They were given their chapter plaque and challenged to make plans to place it among the other chapter plaques at the convention in June of 1990. Other beautiful gifts were admired by each sister before the evening ended. After the pictures were taken and the thank yous said the weary sisters went out onto the campus as full members of Alpha Sigma Tau- happy but tired!

Alpha Rho Colony: Youngstown State University We are extremely proud and very excited to be a part of the recolonization of the Alpha Rho Chapter at Youngstown State University. Although we have only been a colony since September, we have received so much support from various AST chapters around the country, that it has not taken us long to realize what a strong bond the sisters of Alpha Sigma Tau have , and how fortunate we are to have the opportunity to experience that sisterhood. In October we participated in our first formal rush . We learned a tre mendous amount about what it means to be a part of a sorority, and besides working harder than we thought we would have to , we also had alot more fun and , as sisters, got alot closer than we thought was possible.

In November our chapter attended a Regional Leadership Workshop in Lock Haven , Pennsylvania . Since we have never experienced anything quite like this before , not only the sisters that went , but our whole chapter benefited a great deal as a result of what they learned . Recently we took part in Greek Week, which is something that is also very new to us. We placed first in al most every event and were very proud to accept our trophy for winning at the conclusion of the week 's competition. We look forward to learning about the wonderful sisterhood we have joined and hope that in the future , Alpha Rho will be as successful at Youngstown State, as the other AST chapters are on their campuses. - Evelyn Hughes
