W h e t h e r it's to dance in New York, begin teaching 7 t h Grade or become a Peace Corps volunteer in Afr i c a t h e class of 2 0 0 3 h a s formed h a p p y memories of our time a t Hope knowing we h a v e learned i n v a l u a b l e lessons a n d experienced priceless times.

1 3 4 Panhellenic Council

The PanheUenic Council plays an important and active role on Hope's campus. We take part in fostering harmonious and efficient inter-sorority relationships while promoting a cooperative spirit between sororities and the college community. Our role is to be a liaison to the administration and a resource to our chapters in order to unite the strengths of both. We also govern and educate the chapters in order to strive for excellence in scholarship, service, and ideals. Furthermore the Panhellenic Council encourages individuality and chapter and community growth b y creating a n atmosphere of m u t u a l respect and open communication. This Panhellenic Council has taken part in several successful events over the course of the school year. Some examples include a v a r i e t y of service projects, sweater and jewelry sales, the allGreek pig roast and barbeque, the campus-wide masquerade ball and the all-Greek hockey g a m a In addition to these events the Panhellenic Council has participated in multiple leadership conferences to enhance Greek-life on campus. For instance, some members attended the Indiana Greek Leadership Conference while others attended the Mid-American Greek Council Association. Both of these events h a v e improved our leadership skills not only in the Greek community but also in all areas of lifa ,This past y e a r has been stimulating and exciting. We look forward to continuing and improving our role on campus and among all Greek organizations. The Panhellenic Council consists of members representing each sorority including'. Alpha Gamma Phi. Becky Wieferich, Emily Liang, Kemery Twining/ Delta Phi'. Emily Little Meghan Betka (Push Chair, Katie V a n D a m (Secretary)/ Kappa Beta Phi'. Elizabeth Headworth Emilie Preseau (President), Grace Whitmer, Emily Collenbrander Kappa Delta Chi'. Emily Scott, Melissa Blush Laurie McNamara (Treasurer)/" Sigma lota Beta'.

.pha Kappa Pi, also known as the Promethean Fraternity, was founded in 1 9 9 6 as an alternative to other fraternities on campus. It was created with the ideals of academic excellence; openmindedness, and community and encourages its members to maintain a t least a 3.0 grade point average and be involved with discussions about political and social issues. According to fraternity president Matt Boes, "We encourage our members to grow mentally and socially b y giving them an avenue to learn about issues t h a t concern all people in a global sensa" The Prometheans are the most diverse fratern i t y on cam pus, with half of the members from countries other t h a n the United States, This fact provides the members with access to cultures different from their own, shown b y participation in Images, the a n n u a l International dinner, and even just hanging around the f r a t e r n i t y cottaga Members come from such countries as Nepal Senegal K e n y a J a pan, the Netherlands, Cyprus, J a m a i c a Ethiopia and m a n y mora The f r a t e r n i t y was more active socially this y e a r t h a n &/er befora The members feel t h a t the f r a t e r n i t y has gained a position of equality among the rest of the Greeks on campus, something the fraternity has been striving for since inception. Members were involved in the soccer team, various academic honors groups, the Interfratemity Council the Model United Nations, the Japanese club, the Republican and Democratic parties. Residential Lifa the J a z z Combo, Symphonette, and m a n y other activities around campus, helping to gain a higher profile forr the f r a t e r n i t y on campus t h a n ever befora The Prometheans look forward to a y e a r of new faces, and hope to gain even more visibility next y e a r as t h e y strive toward their ideals.

1 4 2 Delta Phi Sorority

The blue house on the hill is home to the Delta Phi sorority, founded in 1 9 1 0 and the second oldest sorority on campus. Along with 9 8 years of traditions has come strong friendships and unbreakable bonds of sisterhood These bonds are a part of all t h a t they do. The Delphis h a v e made themselves a permanent fixture on campus as a n active part of Dance Marathon and h a v e expanded their enthusiasm past the organization to become a part of m a n y campus groups. While an important part of the sorority is based in service, their efforts reach far beyond the campus community. This y e a r t h e y participated in outreach programs a t the Holland Civic Center, held canned food drives for the Holland Rescue Mission, collected clothing supplies for Women in Transition, and participated in the a n n u a l Walk for W a r m t h Outside of programs to benefit others, the Delphis designed events to cultivate friendships within the sorority and throughout the Greek Community. Planned events with other organizations and weekly business meetings make up the social norm for these women. The Ddphis h a v e two formals a y e a r in which t h e y get to spend some q u a l i t y time together and Co-Lib meetings with their brothers the Cosmos, where t h e y a r e able to continue traditions built long ago. Date Nights, Canoe Trips, and retreats h a v e made this y e a r exciting for Delta Phi. Along with excitement of sisterhood this y e a r was a sort of celebration for the ladies in n a v y . After not taking a new member class the y e a r before, t h e y were faced with a unique situation, and rose to the challenge of recruiting dedicated women who would c a r r y on the traditions of Delta Phi. Rush started in J a n u a r y and the Delphis were On the Road Again" and off on a Road Trip to recruit and get to know some outstanding women on campus. They were triumphant in their endeavors and were thrilled to welcome 2 5 new members into the sisterhood t h a t t h e y all hold so dear. Ending the y e a r as a success was a great accomplishment for friends but for these Delta Phi sisters it was inevitabla

This spring, the Hispanic Student Organization officially changed their name to "La Raza Unida". The new acronym is LaRu. It translates to "People United," T h e y wanted to change their n a m e m a i n l y because it's not just for Hispanic/Latino students. It's open to a n y o n e on campus who is interested in embracing the Latino culture on Hope's campus and in the Holland community. They are here to support and promote the multicultural needs on campus pnd-profnote-diversity This y e a r t h e y sponsored several campus-wide events in conjunction with Multicultural Life! The Hispanic Food Festival in Phelps and Cook with band "Los Banditos," the Cesar Chavez Address with Keynote speaker Senator Vaide Garcia "Cesar Died Today" a Baile (Dance) in the Kletz, and "A Slice of Rice Fnjoles and Greens" in the Knickerbocker which was a humorous and emotional mix of stories t h a t gave insight to the Asian American, Afican American, Latino, and Deaf American experience using theater, music and dance. The highlight of the y e a r was being able to host the GLCA. Black and Latino Conference on Hope's campus this year. Seven of the twelve GLCA schools were present a t the Conference. There were two amazing keynOteepea,kers; m a n y sessions discussing issues raging from stress, religion, culture and m a n y others. The group this y e a r was small but close. They had several group activities including bowling night and several dinners both out to restaurants and potluck. They are hoping to get their organization known more on campus. They h a v e a lot of plans for the future. Their goal is to lean more about others, their culture and themselves and h a v e fun doing it, "Por Mi Raza Habla El Espintu,"

This summer, I found myself in a great o p p o r t u n i t y to develop c u r r i c u l u m a n d t e a c h s u m m e r science c a m p s a t Hope College. From t h e m o m e n t school w a s over for t h e y e a r , I s t a r t e d c u r r i c u l u m development for t h e s u m m e r science camps. I w a s p e r s o n a l l y in c h a r g e of "How Things W o r k " a n d " E n v i r o n m e n t a l Sciences." These c a m p s m i g h t h a v e been a g r e a t opp o r t u n i t y for children to learn things t h e y were interested in, b u t I feel a s t h o u g h I did most of t h e learning this siimmer. Even t h o u g h I a m h a l f w a y t h r o u g h college now, I believe this job t a u g h t m e a lot more t h a n a n y education class h a s . T h e first four weeks I found myself doing a lot of reading a n d searching. W e h a d to find a week's w o r t h of m a t e r i a l for e a c h c a m p we were focusing on. In order to find good activities, I brainstormed a n d wrote down s e v e r a l things I w a n t e d t h e Dr. kids t o l e a r n d u r i n g t h e week. K r u p c z a k f r o m t h e Physics Department, aided m e in developing t h e c u r r i c u l u m for t h e "How Things Work" camp. He teaches t h a t s a m e class d u r i n g t h e y e a r to college students, a n d h a d some v e r y resourceful ideas. W h e n I h a d f i n a l l y found enough c u r r i c u l u m to fill t h e t i m e for t h e camps, I t h e n h a d to w r i t e u p all of t h e activities so t h a t kids could follow t h e m . Then t h e kids c a m a I could see t h a t I w a s l e a r n i n g a g r e a t deal from t h e kids. I found myself m a k i n g a m i s t a k e w i t h one child b u t correcting t h a t m i s t a k e later in t h e summer. Teaching methods were also a n o t h e r t h i n g I g r e a t l y improved upon. W h e n I signed u p for t h i s job, I w a s n ' t s u r e w h a t I w a s in store for. I feel a s t h o u g h this s u m m e r h a s t a u g h t m e a lot a b o u t teaching, kids, a n d curriculum development. This job w a s a lot h a r d e r t h a n a conventional s u m m e r job, b u t it w a s definitely w o r t h it!

Working together, creating new environments

awA TrHBeta is the bridge between students and f a c u l t y of the biology department. "It is a n organization where hkermnded people can get together, pool ideas and h a v e a good time," said TrHBeta president R y a n H a m b y . This national b r ology honor society whose Alpha E t a chapter has existed on Hope's campus since 1950, is a n assimilation of biology majors and minors who enjoy getting involved in biology beyond the classroom and labs. The members plan service, social and academic-oriented events t h a t are then available to all biology majors and minors. This year, the club sponsored m a n y social events, including a l u a u in the greenhouse and dinners a t f a c u l t y houses. T h e y also participated in Little Science Club, a club r u n b y the Chemistry department, but devoted a couple S a t u r d a y s to biology-related activities. Tri-Beta interacts with the c o m m u n i t y b y inviting the kids in to learn about biology and h a v e f u n doing it," said TriBeta vice president J o d y M u r r a y , who organized the biology portion of Little Science Club. "Overall Tri-Beta promotes u n i t y among the f a c u l t y and students of t h e biology department through the social events and activities. I t s important to get to know the f a c u l t y and feel comfortable around them t h e y are our greatest academic resource during these four years.

For instance in t h e past four years, f a c u l t y h a v e o n l y directed one of Shakespeare's p l a y s . This m e a n s t h a t if a student w a n t e d practice with Shakespearean l a n g u a g e or s t y l e but h a d o n l y j u s t a r r i v e d a t Hope t h e y would be out of luck. F o r t u n a t e l y t h e student production of Twelfth Night provided a n occasion for such students to utilize their knowledge of Shakespeare. "1 r e c e n t l y h a d t h e o p p o r t u n i t y to direct Parallel Lives b y Mo G a f f n e y a n d K a t h y N a j i m y for Katie Carlston's senior project. The experience w a s completely irreplaceable to me" said Kristin Tiscomia, "You c a n n o t t e a c h someone how to produce a p l a y r u n a production meeting or comm u n i c a t e c l e a r l y w i t h designers. The o n l y w a y to learn these skills is b y doing them." Peter Beck h a d a similar experience w i t h his direction of t h e classic erotic t a l e of Miss Julie. Peter described t h e experience b y s a y ing "Working on a f i n a l project w a s a culm i n a t i n g experience for m a J u s t a b o u t eve r y t h i n g t h a t I h a d learned in t h e a t r e u p to t h a t point w a s utilized a n d proved ext r e m e l y helpful." Student produced p l a y s on c a m p u s a r e a w a y to encourage independence a n d artistic freedom in y o u n g adults. T h e y encourage students to use their strengths a n d their imaginations in p l a y production. No idea is discouraged no m a t t e r how c r a z y . Instead, students a r e given t h e o p p o r t u n i t y to learn about themselves a n d t h e kind of a r t t h a t t h e y w a n t to produce, Tiscornia added "When I t h i n k b a c k on all t h e things I h a v e learned a b o u t myself t h r o u g h thea t r e a t Hope College I learned t h e most while being involved in student productions.
