Total Raise! On Thanksgiving Monday chapters voted unanimously to raise total to 55 members, effective January 3, 2006. What does this mean? Chapters at 50 or above may not issue any bids to PNMs from now until after Christmas Break. After Christmas Break, chapters may bid members until they reach 55 (all chapters have met quota, that number no longer affects your membership). When are spaces opened in total? When a member resigns her membership, chapters may fill her space so long as they are under total. Any questions? Ask Katy Short, Panhellenic President (president@ubcsororities.com) Or Anna Kinna, PH Recruitment Advisor (annakinna@hotmail.com) Have you thought about what you could donate for the Panhellenic Art Auction? Showcase your talent! Slide3:  Since the house is full why do we have to pay variable rent? The financial arrangements that were established to manage the debt associated with building the House were based full occupancy. In our first year, last year, the House was not full. We also cannot expect to keep the House full during the summer months and this shortfall has to be covered. We have to cover our operating expenses and mortgage with the income that we get from the House. A full house all year round will cover it. As long as we have vacancies the chapter room rents will vary depending upon the previous year’s shortfall. Can the chapter room rent be raised slightly versus the variable rent? Yes, this can be handled any way the chapters wish. The objective is to raise the amount of money that is necessary to cover the shortfall resulting from vacant rooms. Will there be a system to ensure that sorority women get the first priority? Will there be a way to ensure that each chapter has equal access to living in the House? We are giving sorority women first priority – we would love to see the House occupied fully by members. However, members have to meet the schedule for applying for a space and for making their financial arrangements. We cannot hold open spaces for sorority women because we cannot handle the financial risk of vacancies. There are no sorority women on our waiting list at present. Every chapter has the same access to residence accommodation in the House. The timeline for applications is on our website. Is it fair to charge new members the variable rent when the house is full? It is up to each chapter to determine how they want to handle the variable rent. They can choose to charge the new members less if they choose by finding other means of covering the variable rent payment as it has been set (for example: fundraising, charging senior members more, etc.). How can members help manage the costs? Members can help keep our operating costs down … turn off the lights, keep the heat at a reasonable temperature, be sure to turn everything off and the heat down when the room is not in use. Keep the house clean by tidying up after yourselves: keep the bathrooms clean, take out the garbage, etc. Take responsibility for guests to be sure that there is no damage. Members can fundraise to contribute to the House either as a chapter or through Panhellenic: 50/50 draws, raffles, weekly poker draw, etc. Panhellenic House Questions Answered by members of V.A.P.A.

If you want anything done, ask a woman. -Margaret Thatcher- Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission. -Eleanor Roosevelt- It's the fire in my eyes / And the flash of my teeth / The swing of my waist / And the joy in my feet / I'm a woman / Phenomenally - Maya Angelou - Slide5:  2 Instruction terms are commonly used in essay and examination questions. They suggest the approach you should take towards the subject. The following indicate what they normally mean for essays and exam questions. If in doubt ask the instructor. Account for: Explain the reasons for, giving an indication of all relevant circumstances. Not to be confused with 'Give an account of' which asks only for a detailed description. Analyze: Study in depth, identifying and describing in detail the main characteristics. Argue: Put forward a proposition, then illustrate it, discuss its significance, and defend it against possible counter-charges. Assess: Examine closely, with a view to 'weighing up' a particular situation. Consider in a balanced way the strengths and weaknesses or points for and against a proposition. In conclusion, state your judgment clearly. Comment: State clearly and in moderate fashion your opinions on the material in question. Support your views with reference to suitable evidence or explanations. Compare: Look for similarities and differences between two or more things. Contrast: Deliberately single out and emphasize the differences and dissimilarities between two or more things. Criticize: Give your judgment about a statement or a body of work; explore its implications, discussing all the evidence which is available. Be specific in your examination. Define: Set down the precise meaning of something. Be prepared to state the limits of the definition. Take note of multiple meanings if they exist. Describe: Give a detailed and comprehensive account of. Discuss: Investigate and examine by careful argument. Explore the implications and the advantages or disadvantages. Debate the case and possibly consider any alternatives. This is probably the most common instruction term. It is inviting you to say something interesting in response to the topic in question. You can choose your own approach. Evaluate: Make an appraisal of the worth of something in the light of its truth or utility. Emphasize the views of authorities as well as your personal estimation. Explain: Make plain. Account for. Clarify, interpret, and spell out the material you present, giving reasons for important features or developments. Illustrate: Make clear and explicit by the discussion of concrete examples. Justify: Show adequate grounds for decisions or conclusions. Answer or refute the main objections likely to be made against them. Outline: Give the main features or the general principles of a subject, omitting minor details and emphasizing structure or arrangement. Relate: Show how things are connected, and how they possibly affect, cause, or resemble each other. Review: Make a survey of, examining the subject critically. State: Present the main points in brief, clear form. Summarize: Give a concise account of the main points of a matter, omitting details and examples. Trace: Follow the development or history of a topic from some point of origin.
