Na & Tori’s 6 Study Table

3.05, 5.5%, 10 At the Winter 2013 Greek Leadership retreat both of the governing councils and the Greek Community’s chapter presidents sat down to discuss what goals they wanted to achieve during their terms. In the end, three goals stood out the most to the councils which involved the numbers: 3.05, 5.5% and 10.

3.05: This number represents the GPA the council would like to see the Greek community achieve during the Spring semester.

5.5%: This is the percentage of the full-time undergraduate student population the council would like to see the Greek community grow to within the next year.

10: This is the number of Alumni/Alumnae that the council would like each chapter to have at the Greek Life Reunion on April 6. Along with the help from the entire community there is no reason these goals cannot be achieved!

Thoughts from John... Maverick Greeks should be proud of their academic performance during the Fall 2012 term! As a community, Greeks achieved a 2.95 GPA, the highest mark we've seen in at least four years. Three chapters achieved higher than a 3.0 GPA. Four men’s chapters, Sigma Chi, Lambda Chi Alpha, Delta Chi, and Phi Delta Theta, achieved above the all men's average of 2.83, and two women's organizations, Alpha Chi Omega and Sig-

ma Sigma Sigma achieved higher than the all-women's average. We haven't had this many chapters achieve above these levels in years. The community, fresh off this significant improvement, has set an ambitious goal of 3.05 for the Spring 2013 semester. We're hopeful that all

@MaverickGreeks members will contribute to this effort! -John Bulcock

Meet Your New Council Presidents! January marks the first month that the new Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils have been in session and with all of the hard work they will be doing why not get to know your new PHC and IFC presidents? PHC President, Trisha Makovsky, is a senior human biology major and a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha. She has held many positions in her chapter and has previously served as VP of Conduct Review on PHC. When asked what made her run for PHC President she replied, “The leadership opportunities and good resume builder. I also have a strong support for the Panhellenic world and wanted to be a larger part of it.” Interfraternity President Jacob Moe

IFC President, Jacob Moe, is a junior double majoring in Business Management and Marketing with a minor in Business. He is a member of Delta Chi and has previously served as President of his chapter for two terms. When asked why he ran for IFC President he replied, “After everything that I had done with Delta Chi during my 2 years as president, IFC president looked like a new area I could make an impact in.” Both Presidents were also asked what they hope to accomplish during their time as president, Trisha replied, “…increase Chapter companionship…Community growth…more All Greek events” while Jacob replied, “I hope to build the Greek community bigger and stronger than ever before, and have grades steadily improve”.

Panhellenic President Trisha Makosvsky

After we got all of the important questions out of the way, we figured knowing the boring details wasn’t enough to truly know who your Presidents are, so we threw in some fun questions. Q. What is your favorite candy? Jacob: Rolo (NOT to be confused in any way with YOLO) Q. If you could be any super hero, who would you be? Trisha: Wonder Woman! Q. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one person and one item who and what would you bring and why? Trisha: Jeff Corwin – because he knows what to eat and what not to eat. And I would bring my cell phone, duh! Jacob: My wonderful girlfriend Emma Deppa, and a fully loaded yacht that can sail around the world so we can enjoy the trip.

If you would like to see Trisha and Jacob in action, attend a PHC meeting Thursdays at 4 P.M. or and IFC meeting Thursdays at 5 P.M. in the Nickerson Room (CSU 238).

Freezin’ for a Reason This semester the ladies of Alpha Sigma Alpha are planning on participating in the Polar Plunge in St. Peter on February 2. Polar Plunge is an event put on by Minnesota law enforcement every year between January and March and all proceeds from the event go to Special Olympic Minnesota. The Alpha Sigma Alpha ladies’ National Philanthropy is Special Olympics so this event is a way for them to support their National Philanthropy as well as supporting the local Minnesota Special Olympics event. In order to raise more money for this event, the ladies of ASA held a fundraiser at Applebee’s on January 23. If you brought in a flyer when you came to eat 15% of the proceeds from the night went to the ASA women for their Polar Plunge team. A few ladies at the event as well as Emerald Yeshidagne, the Philanthropy chair gave me some more insight into their Polar Plunge team; there are 15 of the ASA ladies who are jumping and many of the women who aren’t jumping are going on February 2 to support their sisters as they make the frigid plunge. Brad Steele, a local DJ from the radio station Z99, is partnering with the ASA women to raise awareness about the plunge. The goal for the ladies is $2,000 and from the Applebee’s event they were able to raise $142.30! If you would like to support the Alpha Sigma Alpha ladies raise money for their plunge team you can go to and look for “Z99/Alpha Sigma Alpha” and your donation will help these ladies help Special Olympics Minnesota.

Jimi’s Joke Corner Na and Greek students were Tori’s Study Two walking across campus when one said, "Where did you get Table such a great bike?" 

Study Tip #524 

Use the “45/15 Method”, study for 45 minutes and take a 15 minute break. It’ll give your brain time to rest...and will also allow you to pay more attention to your phone!

The second Greek replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."

The second Greek nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fit."
