Phi Delta Phi Attention all full- and part-time students! Phi Delta Phi, a WCL legal fraternity, will be conducting two information sessions next week. Phi Delta Phi's mission, which is unique to the organization, is to encourage a commitment to legal ethics, both in school and in the professional world. The information session will explain: 1) what a legal fraternity is; 2) what is distinctive about Phi Delta Phi; 3) details in how to join; 4) plans for the future (including becoming an honor fraternity). Our first information session will take place Tuesday, March 30, at noon in Room 100. Our second information session will take place the same day, Tuesday, March 30, at 5:00pm in Room 524. You only have to attend one of the two meetings. We encourage both full time and part time students to attend!
We plan on having an initiation ceremony on Monday, April 5, at 7:00p.m., will conduct officer elections, and will celebrate with a social afterwards. Officer positions include: 1) Magister (President); 2) Vice-Magister for the Day Students; 3) Vice-Magister for the Night Students; 4) Historian (Arranges Meetings; website); 5) Clerk (Secretary); and 6) Exchequer (Treasurer). Details of all these positions will be given at the information session. General membership is open to everyone and Officer positions are open to any student enrolled in the 2004-2005 academic year. This looks great on the resume and is a great networking tool. Please plan on attending one of the information sessions. If for some reason you cannot attend one of the meetings or have questions about the organization, please write Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Michael at email@example.com.
