Transcript Images, In the Eyes of the University GREEK WEEK Any Greek Organization that believed they were untouchable entities, free from the law, university policy, and the scrutiny of the administrators and the student body was at flagrant risk of ruin. There may have been places and times where Greeks, could walk as elitists expecting everyone to admire them based solely on their affiliation, but not at UH. Greeks were not "social airheads," as some have wrongfully accussed. This year the Greeks were saddled with negative images of rebellious men and women, who seeked only a good time and wished to socialize with only "their own kind." These images were reinforced, as one large chapter was closed down amidst national attention for alleged misconduct, and another chapter folded due to lack of membership. We learned how irresponsibility and the lack of leadership in one chapter tainted the whole Greek Community, in the eyes of the campus faculty and administrators. Images of wild times, and social debauchery attacked those who seeked to improve upon these images. Continually encouraging true leaders and serious students to join Greek chapters CHOIR GIRLS...

But how do we as the remaining Greek chapters seek to promote the positive images of the Greek community? It's not by generating internal strife between chapters. It's not by assuming certain people or publications will never change their opinion of Greeks. It's not by sitting back and saying "It's a Greek thing, and you wouldn't understand." The Greeks have given much to UH, and will continue to give to this campus in the future. It is hard for those outside the Greek community to see the true friendships that have been developed, the responsible leadership, and accomplishment of individual chapters. We must put forth a whole-hearted effort to demonstrate our abilities outside the Greek community. This year saw many attempts to turn negative criticism, into laudatory comments. A sincere effort in areas such as scholarship, leadership, service, and social responsibility, have been the target of improvement by most chapters as they encourage members to reach certain standards and expectations; and this improvement will continue to increase next year. Whether it was showing spirit at Homecoming, or building upon traditions like Cougar Fiesta, Greeks were involved this year in every aspect. This year several Greeks were elected to senatorial seats, and the Greek community rallied behind Rusty Hruska to help him win the Presidential Race for SA. Being leaders in Student Foundation, UH Ambassadors, O-Team, and other campus organizations helped promote the entire Greek system, and provided needed assistance to the campus. It is endeavors such as these, that will encouragage new members to demonstrate the same leadership skills and strenghten our Greek community. - Tony Rodriguez. Greek Weef
