As Â Greek Â students Â at Â Iowa Â State, Â we Â come Â across Â many Â issues, Â internally Â and Â externally, Â facing Â our Â organizations Â on Â a Â daily Â basis. Â These Â may Â include Â stereotypes Â or Â members Â not Â living Â up Â to Â the Â organizationsâ€™ Â values. Â Fraternity Â men Â and Â sorority Â women Â from Â around Â the Â nation Â are Â given Â the Â opportunity Â to Â enhance Â and Â explore Â WKHLUOHDGHUVKLSVNLOOVGXULQJDÂżYHGD\SURJUDP in Â Bloomington, Â Indiana, Â the Â Undergraduate Â Interfraternity Â Institute Â (UIFI). Â They Â work Â together Â to Â confront Â these Â issues Â and Â create Â â€œblueprints Â to Â success,â€? Â or Â positive Â action Â plans, Â to Â solve Â these Â issues. Â This Â year, Â Ben Â Freese Â of Â Delta Â Tau Â Delta, Â Zach Â Mlcoch Â of Â Sigma Â Alpha Â Epsilon Â and Â Nate Â Bucsko Â of Â Theta Â Chi Â all Â attended Â the Â institute. Through Â his Â experience, Â Freese Â realized Â it Â isnâ€™t Â always Â easy Â to Â confront Â issues Â or Â problems Â within Â the Â Greek Â Community Â and Â each Â individual Â chapter.
)UHGG\)LÂżHOGRI6LJPD3LSDUWLFLSDWHGLQ8,), LQDGLIIHUHQWZD\DVRQHRIWKHLQWHUQV)LÂżHOG attended Â the Â institute Â last Â year Â as Â a Â participant Â and Â enjoyed Â the Â experience Â so Â much Â he Â continues Â to Â be Â involved Â with Â the Â program. â€œI Â have Â gained Â a Â perspective Â that Â I Â never Â would Â have Â gotten Â if Â I Â stayed Â here Â at Â ISU Â DQGGLGQÂśWJRÂ´)LÂżHOGVDLGÂł,ZDVKXPEOHG I Â was Â proud, Â and Â now Â I Â am Â ready Â to Â lead Â the Â change.â€? )LÂżHOG5HFUXLWPHQW&KDLUIRU6LJPD3LKDV used Â his Â experiences Â and Â knowledge Â gained Â from Â UIFI Â to Â help Â enhance Â recruitment Â for Â his Â chapter. Â He Â was Â also Â driven Â to Â run Â for Â the Â Interfraternity Â Council, Â of Â which Â he Â now Â holds Â position Â of Â Vice Â President Â of Â Marketing. â€œNothing Â has Â changed Â my Â life Â to Â the Â extent Â that Â UIFI Â has.â€?
â€œThroughout Â UIFI, Â you Â are Â forced Â to Â step Â out Â of Â your Â comfort Â zone,â€? Â said Â Freese. Â â€œOur Â facilitators Â kept Â telling Â us, Â â€˜Trust Â the Â process,â€™ Â and Â once Â we Â were Â able Â to Â do Â this, Â we Â grew Â incredibly Â close.â€? UIFI Â helped Â Freese Â establish Â connections Â to Â other Â Greeks Â across Â the Â nation Â who Â he Â knows Â will Â be Â willing Â to Â share Â advice Â with Â him Â as Â needed. â€œThese Â people Â have Â already Â been Â a Â huge Â help Â to Â me Â in Â my Â journey Â to Â improve Â my Â chapter Â and Â community Â as Â a Â whole,â€? Â he Â said. Because Â of Â his Â rewarding Â experience, Â Freese Â encourages Â all Â up-Âand-Âcoming Â Greek Â leaders Â to Â consider Â attending Â UIFI Â in Â the Â future.

On Â August Â 23, Â the Â Greek Â Community Â celebrated Â its Â annual Â Watermelon Â Fest Â as Â students Â gathered Â around Â the Â Greek Â Triangle Â for Â watermelon, Â barbeque Â and Â to Â meet Â fellow Â Greeks. Â 'XULQJWKHHYHQWÂł7KH5HDO4XDLGÂ´ a Â band Â of Â Delta Â Tau Â Delta Â brothers Â jammed Â for Â all Â in Â attendance.

W\&RPHV7RJHWKHUIRU DQGWKH<DUG6KRZ On August 24th, NPHC and MGC showcased their organizations through their annual Yard Show. Traditionally, yard shows occur at different campuses to show the current chapters that are on the ‘yard’, meaning which chapters are active at the school. It is a time for all organizations to come together to not only have fun but also show potential new members what their organizations are about through their strolls, step, or salutes. Sororities and fraternities perform in the order of the year they were founded. The Yard Show is a form of entertainment for the community but also a time for MGC and NPHC to show pride in their chapters.
ƤƪƲ5HFHLYHV&KDUWHU By ABBY EHRLER After 6 years, the Tau Sigma chapter of Beta Theta Pi at Iowa State received their charter during the 173rd General Convention of Beta Theta Pi in Chicago. The chapter has been at Iowa State since 1905, but closed in 2005. In the fall of 2006, the chapter recolonized at Iowa State and began the long, rigorous process of receiving its charter. ³,WWRRN¿YH\HDUVRIKDUGZRUNWRJHW to this status,” said Sean Hickey, a sophomore in Beta Theta Pi. Before petitioning for a charter, Beta Theta Pi had to be reestablished as a colony. This required approval from the Board of Trustees and an authorization at their General Convention to achieve full colony status.
Finally, the chapter was granted their charter after three-fourths of the Beta Theta Pi chapters represented voted in favor of the charter. “This is really good for us because it takes away the question of how we are going to stay around,” said sophomore %HWD7KHWD3LPHPEHU-RVLDK5XKODQG ³5HOLHYLQJWKHFKDUWHULVIRUWKHDOXPQL because now the traditions and legacies of Beta Theta Pi are sure to carry on at Iowa State.”
Once established as a colony, the men of Beta Theta Pi could then petition for their charter. The procedure of receiving a charter is different for each organization, but to receive one for Beta Theta Pi, it was requires recommendations by two of the three nearest chapters on campus. A petition has to be reviewed by a Board of Trustees, and after a majority of the members vote in favor, the petition was then taken to the next General Convention.

Kristie Syring Year: Senior Major: Apparel Design Sorority: .DSSD'HOWD 4:KDWDUHWKHELJJHVWDFFRPSOLVK- ments you have had at your years in college? A: College offers some wonderful oppor- tunities and I am grateful that I was able to take advantage of some of them. My experiences on my internships, study- ing abroad, and being involved with The Fashion Show have really enriched my college experience. The common thread through all of these experiences has been the support and anchoring that I UHFHLYHGE\EHLQJD.DSSD'HOWD0\ house was my home away from home and my sisters have been there to sup- port me through it all. 4:KDWLV\RXUIDYRULWHPHPRU\IURP the past few years at college? A: My semester in London offered me irreplaceable opportunities with classes, offers to work with local designers, and to broaden my horizons. I learned so much about myself through that experi- ence and it will always be near and dear to my heart.
Kristie has recently done an internship for Vera Bradley & was a part of the Disney College Experience!

As a freshman I always thought maybe I would do it next semes- ter or next year. I am a Senior and it is now or never, time is of the essence. So apply for that position. Be in that club. Push yourself or bring somebody if you are nervous about going alone.”

Â Weâ€™ve Â gone Â from Â 18 Â members Â when Â I Â joined Â to Â around Â low Â 50s. Â Like Â I Â said, Â thereâ€™s Â been Â a Â lot Â of Â other Â key Â players Â in Â the Â game, Â but Â thatâ€™s Â been Â motivation Â to Â see Â my Â fraternity Â be Â proud Â of Â where Â weâ€™ve Â gone Â and Â where Â weâ€™ll Â continue Â to Â go. Â Outside Â of Â that, Â my Â experience Â on Â IFC Â was Â great, Â really Â fun Â time Â and Â a Â bunch Â of Â work Â but Â it Â was Â cool Â to Â see Â the Â Greek Â community Â from Â the Â outside. Â Youâ€™re Â not Â concerned Â with Â just Â your Â chapter Â but, Â where Â the Â community Â is Â going Â to Â go Â as Â a Â whole. Â It Â was Â a Â great Â H[SHULHQFHDQG,GHÂżQLWHO\UHFRPPHQG that Â to Â anyone. Â

Words Â of Â Advice Â from Â Brian: â€œNever Â overlook Â an Â opportunity. Â Every-Â one Â says Â it, Â but Â you Â will Â get Â out Â what Â you Â put Â in. Â Youâ€™re Â going Â to Â work Â really Â hard, Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â build Â a Â resume, Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â make Â friends, Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â have Â a Â good Â time. Â If Â you Â donâ€™t Â really Â do Â it, Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â be Â there, Â but Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â be Â on Â the Â side Â lines, Â and Â thatâ€™s Â not Â what Â Greek Â is Â about, Â being Â Greek Â is Â about Â stepping Â up Â to Â the Â plate Â and Â getting Â those Â leadership Â skills.
