But I miraculously got to campus pretty quick and found a parking spot in a fraction of the time it normally takes me.
RECRUITMENT STARTS THIS WEEK!
we are having a game mixer. We’ve got board games, video games, and pizza :D
We have Meet the Greeks, Game Night, an ice cream social, info sessions, and a Chili’s fundraiser :D
We have 9 interests, which is pretty exciting. That would be the largest class we have gotten to date 8D
I’m sure our PNM Director will do as an amazing job with them as she did with last semester’s class.
What do you do for your rush events?
What do you wish you could do?
Like, include information and how you can donate/support the philanthropy and the supporting sorority and fraternity and any special events they might be holding. I might start with just the philanthropies from the sororities and fraternities on my campus, but I also want to include those from other fraternities and sororities outside of my school.
One morning about three weeks ago, my 4-year old, who would typically go to school with bedhead that would make Don King jealous, emerged from the bathroom with a very wet and surprisingly well-combed head of hair. He did this on his own, and my wife and I had no clue what brought it on. After all, this was the kid that would run screaming through the house like his rump was on fire if we had even tried to put a few drops of water on his melon. As I drove my well-groomed little gentleman to school, I continued to wonder about what caused this change in behavior.
Once I got to school and dropped him off, the reason became very clear. It’s name was Olivia.
This incident reminded me of the tremendous power women have to influence men’s behavior. Whether it be our moms, sisters, girlfriends, or wives, we as men owe a lot to women for civilized behavior.
As we try to advance the men’s fraternity movement, we could use some help from our female friends. Many fraternities and fraternity men behave badly – being insensitive at best and harmful at worst. A lot of these men receive an assist from women who let them off the hook. They let them feel no consequences for their boorish behavior.
The amount of influence that women have on men is so consequential, that they may be the best answer to creating a more values-driven fraternity culture.
So – I implore the undergraduate women reading this to do a few simple things to help us right the fraternal ship. These suggestions won’t take a lot of time, but you may change the course of history. Here is what I’m asking you to do:
Oh - and if appropriate, tell them their hair looks nice when combed.
