Like our formal recruitment evaluation process, a record is kept by the Vice President of Membership. As an exec board, we talk about the pros and cons of the recruitment. Then, it is recorded and given to the next Vice President of Membership. K. How does your chapter acknowledge and use information received about potential new members? (i.e. recommendation letters, legacy introductions) We have a wishlist, which is a google document that girls can fill out if they are interested in a woman or if a woman has expressed interested in joining Alpha Epsilon Phi. Her contact information is written down. Additionally, the woman writing down the information writes down where she met the potential new member and what her next plan of action is. During COB, we call these women and personally invite them to our events. For formal recruitment, during each party, the Vice President of Membership and the President looked up all the girls who were coming into the party on ICS and matched each girl with actives that they felt had many things in common with them. L. Does your chapter do a philanthropy project during recruitment? Yes No

1. If yes, describe what you do. Spring Quarter during COB, we decorated Pillow Cases to send service members on a ship.

M. Were any infractions filed against the chapter? Yes No

1. If yes, what sanctions were imposed? a. Were these sanctions decided through mediation or by the Panhellenic Judicial Board? N/A 2. Has the chapter completed all of its sanctions? a. If no, why not? Yes No N/A

III. New Member Education
after having gone through their first ritual. Ritual really allows the new members to feel like they are officially a part of the sorority. In their first meeting, they meet the advisors, the president, and VP Finance. Each of them explains to the new members their role in chapter and what they can help them with throughout their journey as new members and future sisters. The new members learn the basics of First Avenues: when and where Alpha Epsilon Phi was founded, its motto, mascot, jewel, crest, colors, and flowers. The new member educator then explains to the new members that they have three responsibilities, which must be completed during the new member program: completing their pearl points, planning a fundraiser, and having a new member class sleepover. Some fundraisers included bake sales, car washes – in which we teamed up with other Greek New Member Classes, or AEPhi nights at restaurants in which patrons could bring fliers so a portion of the profit from their meal would go towards the fundraiser. This week the new members are assigned an Alpha Buddy; an active member who is in charge of making them a small craft, taking them out to lunch or coffee, and/or just making sure they know about chapter and Greek events that are happening that week.

A. Number of new members initiated this academic year:
Fall: 16 Spring: 5 Winter: 6

B. Date(s) of initiation ceremony(ies): June 1, 2011 and November 30, 2011 C. Describe your new member program (give a week by week description including a list of events, education topics, etc.). WEEK 1: The new member program begins on Bid Day. Bid Day allows the new members to meet the actives they did not met during recruitment and vice versa. The new member educator leads a bonding activity. Afterwards, the new member educator explains to the new members what their responsibilities are as members of Alpha Epsilon Phi and invites them to the upcoming events that are happening that week: both chapter and Greek events. The new members are assigned a Heart Sister – this is an active member who is in charge of acting like a Big Sis throughout their time as a new member. WEEK 2: Ribonning and the first new member meeting usually occur the week after Bid Day. The new members get a since of what Alpha Epsilon Phi is all about

WEEK 3: Pinning is always a week after Ribonning. The progress the new members have made in chapter is evident. Relationships start to blossom both with active members and within the pledge class. During the second new member meeting, the new members meet the VP Operations and VP Social Standards. They each explain to

them what role they play in chapter. The VP Social Standards goes in depth as to what the standards board procedures are. She explains to them that they can write a letter to standards if they deem someone’s behavior to be inappropriate while representing Alpha Epsilon Phi. In addition,

they are told what their expectations are as members of the sorority, and what the consequences are of not upholding its standards and responsibilities it entails. That week, the New Member Educator plans a bonding activity for both actives and new members. These events have included tie-dying, going to a venue for karaoke, or crafting. Since Clue Week is just around the corner, it’s important for the new members to get a sense of who they think their Big Sis can be. This week the new members are assigned an Epsilon Buddy. They learn the Greek alphabet and the names of other National/Panhellenic sororities on campus. WEEK 4: During the weekly new member meeting, the new members meet the VP Programming and VP Membership. VP Membership explains to them the importance of recruitment. Since our chapter does both formal recruitment and COB, she describes the differences between each of these. It is important that our new members understand that our chapter relies on newer members to keep our chapter motivated and growing. In addition, they learn details about the First Avenues aspect of our sorority, such as what our badge and pin represent, who the first president of Alpha Epsilon Phi was, when we adopted our philanthropies, and the purpose of convention. At the end of this week, new members must send a list of five actives they would like to have as their Big Sis and actives must send in a list of new members they could potentially pick up as their little. That weekend, the New Member Educator does the pairings and Clue Week begins on Sunday. This week the new members are assigned a Phi Buddy. WEEK 5: This week is Clue Week! The Big Sisters are in charge of delivering presents along with clues to their littles. It is very exciting to hear the new members talk about who they think their Big Sis is. Sometime that week is Big Sis Revealing. This spring and fall, Big Sis Revealing was a sort of fashion show. All the Little Sis’s arrived wearing a shirt that their Big Sisters had given them as a clue as to who they were. All the actives stepped outside and walked back in the room wearing a sweater on top of their matching shirt. Each big revealed herself by taking off her sweater. Furthermore, the new members learn who the current president is, how many delegates must be at National Convention, and the different awards chapters can receive each year. WEEK 6: This spring, the New Member Educator planned Big Sis Appreciation Week a week after Clue Week. It was something similar to Clue Week in which the New Member receives clues as to who their Big Sister might be. This time Little Sis’s were able to shower their Big Sis’s with presents and surprises to show them how thankful they were for them. Since this is the week before Initiation Week, the New Member Educator ensures that the new members have completed their Pearl Points and GreekEdu in order to be initiated. This week allows the new members to really bond with their Big Sisters before making the big transition into chapter, which is being initiated. WEEK 7: The last week of the new member program is Initiation Week. Although this week is crammed with events, chapter really comes together. For every Initiation Week, we had a bonding activity after chapter meeting. This quarter, the bonding activity during I-Week was one of the best sisterhoods of the quarter. Every sister received a few note cards to write meaningful notes to whomever they chose. While everyone was writing, we did Lily Love – where we go around and talk about our lives and reflect on the past quarter. The end of the year made everyone extremely reminiscent. When everyone had finished writing their notes, there were envelopes all around the room

with everyone’s name written on them. Each person was responsible for putting their notes inside each of their sister’s envelopes. The new member final was a game of jeopardy, actives against new members. The new members were told that if they beat the actives they would pass their final. The questions were taken out of their weekly quizzes, which are on First Avenues. For the Green and White Dinner, the New Member Educator asked everyone to wear summer dresses. She made finger sandwiches and berry parfaits. It was a good way to end the new member program. Finally, after Initiation we always sit in a circle and do Lily Love – where we go around and talk about our lives and reflect on the past quarter.

D. Is the Pearl System used? E. Did your new members complete GreekLifeEdu?

Yes Yes

F. How are new members integrated into the chapter other than Phi Friends, Heart Sisters? (i.e., serve on committees) In order for the new members to have a smooth transition into chapter, they were invited to all chapter and Greek events. In addition, every Monday after chapter meeting, the new members had their own meeting led by the New Member Educator where they took quizzes on the first avenues and discussed what their responsibilities were as new members. The new members have three responsibilities, which must be completed during the new member program: completing their pearl points; planning a fundraiser; and having a new member class sleepover. Some fundraisers included bake sales, car washes – in which we teamed up with other Greek New Member Classes, or AEPhi nights at restaurants in which patrons could bring fliers so a portion of the profit from their meal would go towards the fundraiser. Every quarter, the New Member Educator plans an event in order for the active members to get to know the new members better and vice versa. These events have been either a bonding activity or going to a venue to sing karaoke. The new members attended both chapter meeting and new member meeting weekly. If there wasn’t a chapter-wide sisterhood event that week, the New Member Educator made sure the new members got together even if for only a short event. This past quarter, the New Member Educator created a new member listserv – this is essential an e-mail group. An Active Member or New Member is able to send an e-mail to the listserv and it is forwarded to all the New Members. It was much easier to contact the new members and inform them about chapter and Greek events along with keeping them feeling included in general. Because Actives were easily able to contact New Members rather than all information coming from the New Member Educator, attendance increased significantly. In addition, the New Member Educator strongly encouraged them to come to chapter meetings, which made it a lot easier for them to know about upcoming events and leadership opportunities in addition to spending more time with the active members. Active members made an extra effort this fall in order to take out the new members to lunch or simply to come out to more chapter events which was very helpful considering we had one of our largest New Member Classes to date. The New Member Educator made sure to tell the actives during each meeting that it was extremely important to keep the new members informed and motivated to continue pursing membership in Beta Eta Chapter. This past spring, the New Member Educator planned a Big Sis Appreciation Week. It was something similar to Clue Week in which the New Member receive clues as to who their Big Sister might be. This time Little Sis’s were able to shower their Big Sis’s with presents and surprises to

show them how thankful they were for them. In the past, the new members have done community service projects like going to a Bannister House. This quarter, I assigned each new member a pearl sis. It was similar to heart sisters and phi buddies, but within their pledge class. It really allowed the new members to get to know each other better very early in the new member program. G. How are new members integrated into the Greek and campus communities? (include programs We encouraged the new members to participate in all Greek activities. We had strong attendance at other chapters’ Philanthropies and Greek Week. We make sure that the New Members understand that although they are members of Alpha Epsilon Phi, they are also members of the Greek Community. The new members are constantly reminded about Greek events whether it’s at meeting, through emails, or one of their buddies reminding them. This year, the new members had a bake sale and a carwash for their pledge class fundraiser. The new members paired up with a fraternity to do this event. They stood on Library Walk, the main open space on campus, selling baked goods and car wash tickets. The carwash was at a near by parking lot in the Jewish Community Center. These events allowed the new member to get to know other members of the Greek community since they are the ones who mainly contribute to fundraisers and philanthropic events on campus as they are the ones most excited to get involved.

H. List and describe, in detail, five activities that you do that best promote a positive new member experience.
1. Heart Sister Event: Fall Quarter, the New Member Educator had an event in which every New Member had to come to with her Heart Sister, an active member who’s the New Member’s special sister before she gets a Big Sister. We had snacks and sat around to talk and get to know each other. The New Member Educator led a game called “Heartly-weds”; it was a modified version of Newlyweds. The new members had to answer questions about their heart sister and vice versa. At the end, the pair that got the most points won a small prize. 2. Karaoke: Every quarter, chapter goes to a venue to sing karaoke. It is an event for the new members; however, active members are encouraged to come. We have found that being silly and singing is always a great way to get everyone more comfortable around each other. 3. New Member Fundraiser and Sleepover: The new member fundraiser and sleepover are the best way for the new members to bond! The week after the new member sleepover, the new members come back with inside jokes and plenty of

stories to tell the actives. Usually, a group of Actives arrive at the sleepover and to surprise the girls and bring baked goods and candy. 4. Big Sis Revealing: This spring and fall, Big Sis Revealing was a sort of fashion show. All the Little Sis’s arrived wearing a shirt that their Big Sisters had given them as a clue as to who they were. All the actives stepped outside and walked back in the room wearing a sweater on top of their matching shirt. Each Big Sis revealed herself by taking off her sweater. 5. I-Week Bonding Activity: This quarter, the bonding activity during I-Week was one of the best sisterhoods of the quarter. Every sister received a few note cards to write meaningful notes to whomever they chose. While everyone was writing, we did Lily Love – where we go around and talk about our lives and reflect on the past quarter. The end of the year made everyone extremely reminiscent. When everyone had finished writing their notes, there were envelopes all around the room with everyone’s name written on them. Each person was responsible for putting their notes inside each of their sister’s envelopes.

events that bring sisters together in social settings, through events that further sisters’ skills and education, through events that bring sisters together in common philanthropic purpose, and through creating additional special bonds beyond those of AEPhi sisters. When sisters first join chapter, they are immediately welcomed by their “Heart Sister,” an older AEPhi mentor, and three special sisters, their “Alpha,” “Epsilon,” and “Phi” buddies that shower them with gifts and attention. During the rest of their AEPhi journey they sing karaoke, play sports, raise money for charitable causes, learn self-defense, and engage in a wide variety of other activities together that promote bonding and ultimately mutual understanding. Beta Eta chapter also encourages kindness, love, and communication between members through bonding activities where sisters share their experiences from the school quarter, like during Lily Love, or share heartfelt words of appreciation to each other, like during the Bonding Activities led by the New Member Educator. F. How does the chapter promote scholarship? As the chapter with the highest GPA in all of the Greek system, AEPhi Beta Eta chapter takes great pride in the academic prowess of our members. We hold scholarship to a high standard and encourage our girls to put their academics first. We promote scholarship by rewarding our members for high GPAs at the end of each quarter. We also commend girls each week in meeting for the academic achievements they accomplished that week. We hold quarterly study hours, strategically placed during midterm and finals time. Our scholarship chair helps to promote All-Greek Study Breaks that take place during finals. Finally, we have a tutoring program in place for sisters to help their fellow sisters in a variety of different academic subjects. G. How does the chapter engage seniors, especially those who have been abroad, in the chapter? Beta Eta chapter has a Seniors Chair, who organizes special appreciation activities for the seniors during their last two quarters as active members in Alpha Epsilon Phi. These include senior-focused appreciation events that happen within the context of a larger event, such as a special “Senior Song” and flowers during Formal, events that are only for seniors, such as a senior photo-shoot, or events that are focused entirely on seniors, like the Senior Brunch. If a senior has been abroad, then she has the opportunity to share photos and stories from her trip with the rest of chapter during meeting.

V. Rituals and Values
Submitted by Robyn Elyse Sablove rsablove@ucsd.edu
A. Does the chapter celebrate Founders’ Day? Yes No

1. If yes, please describe the celebration. This year, our Founders’ Day Celebration was included in our Alumnae Weekend. We held an Alumnae Weekend with San Diego State University’s AEPhi, Epsilon Nu Chapter. We had a Founders’ Day Brunch at the Epsilon Nu house. Then, we conducted the ceremony in the common room. The Presidents of Beta Eta and Epsilon Nu co-lead the Founders’ Day Ceremony. After, we participated in the Debbie Burton Walk. The Debbie Berton Walk is put on by a local AEPhi Alumna from Phi Chapter at UCLA for her mother, Debbie Berton, who also was an AEPhi Alumna. The walk supports both the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Sharsheret. B. Does the chapter conduct the following rituals, as written? 1. Ribboning Ceremony 2. Pledging Ceremony 3. Initiation Ceremony 4. Officer Installation Ceremony Yes No

__x__ ____ __x__ ____ __x__ ____ __x__ ____

C. Does the chapter ensure that the Temple Degree Ceremony is conducted for graduating seniors? Yes No D. Does your chapter utilize the Formal Chapter Opening? Yes No

E. What ritual supplies does your chapter have? (describe each banner as well as other items used) We have a menorah, torah (in book form), candles, the banner that just says Alpha Epsilon Phi in white, the banner that has the columns, orb of light, and pearl, the ritual roll book, a pen, the ritual book, table clothes, and ivy/lily of the valley. F. Does the chapter have an official ritual roll book? No

Yes

G. What does the chapter do to emphasize the values stated in our rituals? (be specific) Every quarter, and more often when necessary, our Vice President of Social Standards goes over appropriate behavior as every woman in our chapter represents Alpha Epsilon Phi National Sorority. Additionally, we have a contract that is handed out every quarter along with our point system. The contract outlines everything that is expected of members of Alpha Epsilon Phi in order to at the bare minimum “live the ritual.” During our recruitment work week this past fall quarter, our President, Robyn Sablove, inspired by the “Living the Ritual” talks at the Summer National Convention, led a “Living The Ritual” Program. A member, Margot Schein, volunteered to recap the Initiation Ritual and in detail described the story of Ruth and Naomi. Another member discussed how this relates to us members of Alpha Epsilon Phi. Then, we went around in a circle and discussed what each of us wants to do in order to “live the ritual.” We also have two recognition systems in place to recognize exemplary women in our chapter every week. One award is called PIF, or Pay it Forward. Every week the holder of PIF, who happens to be a stuffed animal giraffe, recognizes a woman who has done something exceptional to help our chapter. Another award is called “Phi of the Week.” Every week chapter members submit nominations for “Phi of the Week” to our Sunshine Chair who selects a winner based on their sisterly actions. All week the Phi of the Week gets to carry a bag around campus that says “Phi of the

Week” on it. H. How does the chapter hold members accountable when their behaviors are not consistent with our values? We have a Standards Program in place. Our Standards Board program does not just take action when women break Chapter rules, but girls can even be sent to Standards Board for acting inappropriately in the name of Alpha Epsilon Phi. We try to not threaten our members with Standards Board. Instead we encourage and recognize good behavior and in doing so, we have a positive impact on our chapter and see more good behavior than bad. I. What does the chapter do to recognize and acknowledge our Jewish heritage (for example, hold a Passover Seder)? (be specific) Many of our members are active members of the Jewish community on campus. We have created a strong relationship with the Union of Jewish Students, specifically Hillel. Every quarter we host a Shabbat dinner with Hillel during our Continuous Open Bidding. Many of the women in our chapter attend services preceding the dinner. Additionally, this past quarter we hosted a bracelet making event in the Union of Jewish Students’ Sukkah on campus during Sukkot with Alpha Epsilon Pi. We made bracelets to send to Sharsheret to put in the busy boxes for the children of women with breast cancer and to send to the EGPAF to children infected with the AIDS virus. We also held a Matzah Pizza Sisterhood event during Passover. Additionally, we always try to make sure that there are Second Avenues that teach about the Jewish heritage. During Winter Quarter, one of our advisors held a Shabbat Second Avenues after our meeting and discussed the meaning of Shabbat and what happens during Shabbat. Our Jewish Chair, Gabi Tripolsky also held a similar Shabbat Second Avenues during fall quarter to explain Shabbat to our newest members. During Spring Quarter, our Vice President of Programming, Karmen Dykstra held a Havdalah Second Avenues. She prepared all of the items needed for Havdalah and our members went to the beach where Karmen led the Ceremony. She explained the meaning of the ritual and after we had a bonfire. We also had a Havdalah Ceremony with USY, a conservative Jewish youth group and Alpha Epsilon Pi. Our most recent event that acknowledged our Jewish heritage was The Debbie Berton Walk for breast cancer. The event is put on by a local reform Jewish Synagogue, Temple Emanu-El. J. How does the chapter instill a sense of lifelong commitment to its members? Our chapter instills a sense of lifelong commitment, by recognizing and inviting back our Alumnae. When Alumnae come to visit our chapter our girls are inspired and realize that AEPhi does not end after college. This past fall we held an Alumnae Weekend. Our current active and then new members were able to network and meet our Alumnae. On the first night after we had a Shabbat Dinner with Hillel, we had a private Shabbat Dessert. We shared what our chapter has been up to, and in return alumnae shared what they have done since graduation and how Alpha Epsilon Phi has helped them get to where they are today. Our Abroad, Alumnae, and Parents Relations Chair sends out a quarterly newsletter in which she includes an Alumna Spotlight. This newsletter is also forwarded to our active members and they too can see what great things our alumnae are doing. They learn that we do not forget our alumnae once they graduate. Our most inspiring aspect that instills a sense of commitment is that one of our chapter advisors is not only an alumna of our chapter, but she is one of the very first new member classes of our chapter – in fact with still have her Affirmation of Responsibility from when she was a new member of Alpha Epsilon Phi Colony. She alone has demonstrated that our chapter instills a sense of lifelong commitment.

D. Describe how the money for each of the above answers was raised: (Include details about each fundraising event from planning to execution to evaluation) Manicure for a Cure: With the help of the California Hair Design Academy, we put on our first annual, Manicure for a Cure benefiting Sharsheret. We had professionals, who donated their time, supplies, and work giving manicures in exchange for a $5 dollar donation to Sharsheret. We began planning this event around 15 weeks before it happened, looking for different sponsors and people to help us put on this event. We finally found the California Hair Design Academy who was very excited to work with us and in exchange for promoting their Beauty School, they did everything for us for free. We also sold baked goods at the event. A week before the event we paraded the center of the campus to advertise our event and signed people up for appointment slots – so that they may get priority access. Before the actual event we had nearly all our appointment slots full and we left blocks of time open for walk-in appointments. The event was extremely successful and the room was never empty, with a continuous flow of people coming in for manicures. Overall it was an extremely successful event and we are very proud of the results, considering it is our first time doing this. We are really hoping to expand next year. We think with more manicurists available, we will be able to give out more manicures and therefore raise more money for Sharsheret. Teeter for Tots: To raise money for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, we put on our second annual 36-hour “teeter-a-thon.” We lace this event with the theme “Be a Kid to Save a Kid.” We have a larger than life Teeter Totter at 20 feet long and traveling 8 feet in the air. We invited each sorority and fraternities to come during a specific time to ride the teeter totter and play playground games. We also included other student organizations on campus and at one point had the Associated Students’ President riding the Teeter Totter. We asked each organization participating for a $30 donation for EGPAF. We also sold snacks and asked for donations if students wanted to play some of the activities we had provided – like hula hooping, tetherball, face paint, etc. Planning began around 20 weeks before hand. Our philanthropy chairs found sponsors, ordered all the supplies, and figured out the logistics of the event. During the event we always had sisters as well as the “team coaches,” two girls who volunteered to gather participation for an organization they signed up for, present to work the booths and watch over the teeter totter. Overnight, we had our executive board members sleep over at the teeter totter. The event raised over $600, which was not as much as the year before. I think there could have been better planning and execution in that we could of gotten sponsors, as well as great things to raffle off to make more money. Additionally, it is extremely difficult to transport the teeter totter as we do not have a place on campus to store it. We want to make sure that the event continues, but we need to make sure the event is more efficient in the future. We also need to be aware that although the teeter totter is in good condition now, we need to keep checking the safety measures so that no one becomes injured.

Retreat – 4/9/11 to 4/10/11 For the annual retreat this year, Beta Eta goes to the Hidden Valley Retreat and Spa, located about an hour north of San Diego. The venue provides a beautiful 11-acre outdoor space for adventure and rest, as well as an ideal retreat compound complete with multiple bedrooms, a kitchen, several recreation areas, and a hot tub. Each group of girls is assigned to a group, and then the groups switch off preparing and cleaning up after meals. Over the course of a Saturday and Sunday, we complete a series of sisterhood programs as described below. We also have a Composting and Yoga 2nd Aves, of which a description is given under the Second Avenues section. Warm-Up – 4/9/11 As soon as we arrived at retreat, after Retreat Chairs Elizabeth Chase, Maddie Gysi, and Jessica Gross have settled everyone in their rooms and set the rules, girls gather in a circle to play a playful wrestling game. 4 girls play at a time, where two girls hold their partners back, and the other two girls struggle to reach the other girls’ feet to win the game.

garden at the retreat center, while others huddle together to watch American Pie in the media room.

The Puzzle – 4/9/11 – 4/10/11 During the first Free Time Session, one of the Beta Eta sisters finds a puzzle at the retreat center. The puzzle rapidly becomes a center of sisterhood activity as girls gather during their free time to put the pieces together, bonding over creating the picture together. At the very end, sisters rush to complete the puzzle before leaving the center and are just barely able to complete it in time. Family Feud – 4/9/11 Within the greater AEPhi sisterhood, the sisters of Beta Eta have a tradition of maintaining family lines via Big and Little connections. There are the Schmutz family, the Pretty Family, the Princess Family, and the Kismet Family. Sisters separate by family and engage in a competition in the same form as the game show Family Feud. Before retreat, the Retreat Chairs had organized a survey for the Beta Eta sisters to complete, and for the Family Feud questions girls have to guess their sisters’ most popular answers to the survey questions. Survey questions included “Something you always look forward to at the end of the Quarter” and “Foods most commonly found at AEPhi gatherings.” Sisters enjoy testing their knowledge, and laugh at some surprising answers. Post-Secret – 4/9/11 Inspired by the popular Post Secret collections, the Retreat Chairs organized a special program to break down barriers between sisters to reveal our shared struggles. After lunch, girls went off on their own and wrote down two secrets about themselves or challenges that they face in life on note cards. These cards were then collected (anonymously) and girls returned to the center to prepare and eat dinner. After dinner, different quotes from the notecards were posted on 5 pillars in one of the programming rooms. Sisters could read through all the quotes, and then sit under the card that they most identified with. Sisters are then given an opportunity to discuss amongst themselves what the quote meant to them. Various quotes cover the topics of self-image, relationships with parents, emotional challenges, and other life struggles. After heartfelt discussion and shared tears, Beta Eta sisters feel a stronger sense of connection and shared life paths. Friendship Bracelets – 4/9/11 Following the emotionally rewarding but intense experience of the Post-Secret bonding activity, sisters gather in the dining room area to make friendship bracelets together. Especially talented sisters Robyn Sablove and Christine Wang give their sisters hair wraps. Senior Photo Scavenger Hunt – 4/10/11 Seniors Chair, Page Moore, organizes the senior photo scavenger hunt, where girls are split into groups heading by one or two seniors each, and given a camera and list of things to photograph to win the competition. Sisters run around the retreat center in a frenzy of laughter and activity, trying to complete each picture on the list. In the end, everybody’s a winner when Page passes out candy bars to the group as a treat.

Alpha Epsilon Phi Discussion – 4/10/11 The Retreat Chairs lead a heartfelt discussion regarding the challenges that AEPhi Beta Eta Chapter faces as an organization. Girls anonymously write down the best and most difficult things about Chapter, and these are then shuffled and read in small groups. At the end each group chooses the topics that they think are most important and share them with the rest of their sisters. We discuss the challenges of attendance to events, the relationships between Chapter leaders and sisters, the quality of sisterhoods, and more in a heartfelt and open setting. The New Executive Board gains a better understanding of their goals for the year and sisters feel good about having their voices heard. Pictures – 4/10/11 Beta Eta sisters make the most of the beautiful retreat center to take pictures of each of the “Families” and of the chapter as a whole to commemorate the weekend experience Lunch at In and Out – 4/10/11 On the way back to La Jolla, Beta Eta sisters stop at an In and Out to share a lunch together. Sisters unwind and share their new bonds made during retreat. Senior Baby Pictures – 4/4/11 8 pm @ Meeting Seniors Chair Page Moore had made a slideshow of baby pictures of Beta Eta seniors, and at the end of meeting we watch the slideshow and try to guess who’s who. Sisters “ooh” and “aww” over how cute the pictures are. Bonding Activity – 2/28/11 8 pm @ Meeting New Member Educator Leah Mizrahi brings cookies, sprinkles, and frosting to meeting. Every sister decorates the cookie for a designated sister, and at the end everyone gets up to present the cookie to their sister with a kind word and a hug. Hiking Sisterhood – 1/17/11 Beta Eta sisters go stomping through local foliage and occasional Eucalyptus groves at the local Torrey Pines State Reserve. The breath of fresh air and San Diego sunshine make this sisterhood an invigorating break from the routine of being a student. As sisters hike through varying conversations and silences, we get to know each other in a setting beyond the university. Lunch in Letters – Weekly on Fridays 1-3 pm @ RoundTable 1/7/11 – 5/27/11 Every week on Fridays, UCSD hosts “The Jump Off” at the Round Table courtyard where a DJ is invited to play for students from 1-4 pm.

2nd Aves
Recycling 2nd Aves After meeting, Sustainability Chair Sam Gordon gives a 15-minute presentation about what can and cannot be recycled. Her informative talk encourages sisters to practice the sustainability mantra of reduce, reuse, recycle. Shabbat 2nd Aves After meeting, Jewish Chair Gabi Tripolsky gives a 15-minute presentation about the meaning and origins of Shabbat, and shares some of her best Shabbat memories. Non-Jewish sisters are left with a better understanding of what Shabbat means, which is especially welcome with the upcoming Shabbat informal recruitment event. Krav Maga 2nd Aves – 9/20/11 5 pm Inspired by recent assaults on women at UC San Diego, the sisters of Beta Eta head over to the local Jewish Community Center for a Hillel-sponsored lesson in Krav Maga, the Israeli form of self-defense. During a two hour session, sisters learn woman self-defense basics like how to escape from a bear hug, how to escape from a choke hold, how to quickly and effectively hurt a male offender, and most importantly to never give up the fight in case of an assault. Krav maga instructor Dana Ben Kaplan gives short demonstrations and then pairs sisters off to work on their own. Initial laughter at choking and fighting each other gives way to serious practice and training, and by the end we all know what to do if we are ever attacked. This is one AEPhi experience that can save our lives. Healthy Snacking 2nd Aves – 9/11/11 As a break to practicing for Formal Recruitment during Work Week, Karmen Dykstra passes out a printout with some tips about how to eat healthy, as well as some samples of healthy food. Her major

Recruitment 2nd Aves – 5/25/11 After Green and White Dinner, our TEC, Jen, gives an inspiring informational talk about how to prepare for Formal Recruitment. She discusses ways to overcome shyness, network with potential New Members before recruitment, and come up with our own AEPhi story to share with potential New Members. Beta Eta sisters leave the room with a new confidence in their recruitment abilities. Composting 2nd Aves – 4/10/11 As the Beta Eta sisters are taking a tour of the retreat center, they stop by the compost pile for an informational talk about composting by Laura Hamant. Girls learn about how to make their own compost piles even with a small amount of space. Laura answers questions like how long it takes for something to decompose (on average, several weeks!). Yoga 2nd Aves – 4/10/11 During Beta Eta’s annual retreat, Jessica Gross leads an optional Yoga 2nd Aves an hour before breakfast. Jess shows her sisters the basics of Downward Facing Dog and some of her other favorite yoga positions. Sisters get a workout and a few ideas for how to keep their bodies and minds healthy and flexible. Going Abroad 2nd Aves – 3/28/11 8 pm @ Meeting Sammy Itaya, the Second Avenues Chair for Chapter, organizes mini-presentations by Shira Weizman and Laurie Helfenbein about going abroad. Shira shows pictures from her trip around Thailand, Australia and India during her gap year, and Laurie shares pictures from her time in Italy. Both girls talk about their experiences and encourage Beta Eta chapter to venture into the world to reap the benefits of travel. Havdalah 2nd Aves – 3/5/11 7 pm @ La Jolla Shores AEPhi sisters gather around a makeshift bonfire at the grassy area near the beach at La Jolla Shores to celebrate the beginning of Shabbat. Following an explanation of the meaning and symbols of Havdalah, we drink graph juice, light the braided candle, and pass a box of spices around. Marli Gitelson and other Jewish members of Beta Eta lead the rest of chapter in singing a Havdalah prayer. Sisters leave with the memory of having shared a special moment, and non-Jewish sisters have learned a little more about their Founders’ culture.

We watch Gossip Girl, eat popcorn, and end the night with a lively game of Taboo. New Member Appreciation Day – 10/19/11 6:30 – 8 pm In order to bring the New Member class from Formal Recruitment together with the New Member class from Continuous Open Bidding Recruitment, we throw a cohesive New Member Appreciation day where Actives and New Members decorate cupcakes together in a lounge at the UC San Diego campus. At the end of the night, all the cupcakes have been beautifully decorated. Lily Love at Initation – 6/1/11 AEPhi active members initiate new members. After the ceremony, everyone gets in a circle for the tradition of Lily Love, where, while cookies and fruit are passed around, every active member shares something about her quarter or her experience with AEPhi. Many sisters express how deeply significant AEPhi is in their lives.

Green & White Dinner – 5/25/11 Green and White Dinner brings together Actives and New Members to socialize over green and white foods in the final days before initiation.

Big Sis Reveal – 5/17/11 For the Spring Quarter Big Sis Reveal, New Member Educator Leah Mizrahi has AEPhi sisters gather at the AEPhi Teeter for Tots event in the middle of campus. The Little Sisters go on a brief scavenger hunt for pieces of a larger “clue,” which ultimately spells out “Ready to take a walk?” The Little Sisters then gather in a circle and each holds a candle in front of her as the rest of the active members and Big Sisters walk around them in a circle. When the Big Sister is in front of her Little Sister, she blows out the candle, revealing her identity. Big and Little Sisters rejoice at the open connection they will share from this night forward.

Clue Week – 5/15/11 – 5/17/11 Big Sisters give “clues” about their identity to their Little Sisters for the three days proceeding Big Sis reveal. The clue comes with flowers and baked goods the first day, door decoration the second day, and finally a basket the third day. Clue week always makes the Little Sisters feel special and excited.

After this, old exec leaves and new exec essentially has their first executive board meeting. The incoming President facilitates this portion, guiding the new exec to set goals for their term. They also work together to slate chairs for the new term. Additionally, it is each outgoing executive board member’s responsibility to individually transition their predecessor. K. What chapter goals were set during officer transition? Our goal was to improve visibility on our campus and to improve our reputation. This way we would be able to gain more respect from our peers and have a presence on campus to attract quality members. We hope that if we continue on this path we will have the ability to recruit more easily and focus more on improving our sisterhood rather than on constantly recruiting. 1. Describe how these goals were accomplished. A huge part of accomplishing this goal started from holding active members more accountable to the attendance point system. Having more active members go to events, both chapter and campus-wide, would affect both of our two main goals. We did this, and also put more time and effort into recruiting new members. The past year’s informal recruitment brought in higher numbers of young women than before and helped in both aspects as well. We bought more merchandise to also boost our visibility and help cultivate a united front on our campus. L. Do you conduct on-going leadership training for your officers? Yes No

1. If yes, describe what you do. We have an annual leadership conference that our whole chapter attends that is coordinated by Panhellenic and IFC. M. Is the chapter in regular contact with its chapter advisor? Yes No No N/A

We are constantly looking on the website, especially after Summer Convention to make sure that we utilize myaephi and all of the wonderful suggestions it has to offer. Additionally, the Summer Convention allowed us to become more familiar with Chapter expectations and hopefully will lead us one day to becoming a 5-Pearl Chapter. R. Does the chapter publish an alumnae newsletter? Yes No

1. If yes, is it generated by the chapter or an outside source? It is put together by the Abroad, Alumnae & Parents Relations Chair. 2. If yes, how often is it published? Once a quarter. S. Does the chapter hold an annual event for chapter alumnae? Yes No

1. If yes, describe the event. Our Alumnae Weekend is a three-day event in which we invite alumnae to join us in various activities. This year, we started out with a Shabbat dessert on Friday night with active members and alumnae members. The next day, active member and alumnae had lunch together and then went for a hike in the local area. The evening was left free for the alumnae to reconnect with each other. Since we decided to have our Alumnae Weekend the same weekend as Founder’s Day, we celebrated the occasion with our AEPhi sisters from the San Diego State University chapter along with their alum. Afterwards, we all went to the Debbie Burton Breast Cancer Walk which raised money for both Sharsheret and Susan G. Komen. T. Does the chapter hold an annual event for area alumnae? Yes No

1. If yes, describe the event. It was the same event as the event for the chapter alumnae. We invited alumnae of our chapter, of Epsilon Nu’s chapter, and alumnae of other chapters living in San Diego. U. Describe any parents, moms, dads or family events that the chapter holds. Every other year our chapter hosts a Family Weekend, where parents and family members of active members are encouraged to come to our campus and participate in various activities with our chapter. The goal is to show our families what our sorority is about, as well as introduce them to some of the other families of our sisters as well. V. Does the chapter have a functioning parents’ club? Yes No

What does the chapter do to promote positive public relations? Improving our chapter’s public relations and public image was a primary goal of the Executive Board this past term, and one of the ways we achieved this was through more attendance at Greek events outside of our chapter. At nearly every philanthropy event hosted by another chapter, our sorority had a presence and made a conscious effort to be there, often creating a sign-up sheet to hold sisters accountable for attending when they said they would. This kind of presence extends past philanthropy events to Inter-Sorority Sports, where we had both a solid team of girls participating and often a supporting cheering section for almost every sport. Some of the events we emphasize the most, however, are our university’s prominent campus-wide events. This past year, our chapter ordered and wore our own unique school pride tanks to UCSD’s Spirit Night, an annual school pride competition held during a men’s basketball game, and had a strong presence within the Greek section. We also made attendance mandatory for EXCEL, a campus-wide leadership conference focused on helping students improve their professional and personal skills. We wanted to let our wider community know that our sorority was strong not only in all aspects related to being Greek, but also that it contained intelligent and ambitious individuals. For this reason, we also always encourage our members to join other campus organizations as well. Sisters already in organizations will often recommend them to one another, encouraging them to join or apply. Members who are leaders or prominent members of other organizations are also rewarded extra credit attendance points to further encourage our members to be well-rounded.
