Coming into Texas State I did not know anyone. I came from a very strict family that did not allow me to do much outside of school events. In high school my life consisted of work, basketball, and school. I was a very shy kid and was definitely not known as the party kid that hung out with all the popular kids on the weekend. Instead, I was studying, working, or helping my dad around the house. I had no idea how much my life would have changed for the better. Luckily, at summer orientation a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity invited me out to one of their upcoming parties. Initially, I was hesitant and did not know if it would be a good idea. Thank God, I ended up talking myself into going. In just a few hours, he must have introduced me to fifty other Texas State students. Not only that, he got me a couple very good looking girls phone numbers! In just one night I realized that joining a fraternity might be the best thing in the world for me. Not only have I enjoyed meeting tons of people and all the parties, this fraternity has taught me so much more in life. Coming into college my social skills were way below average. Now, I am an exec member that talks confidently for about 4-5 minutes every Tuesday in front of a chapter of nearly 80 people. This is a task that would have scared me to death three years ago. My fraternity also strives for the best grades on campus. Mandatory library hours are assigned each week to ensure our grades are up every semester.…
before we left
And Townsville lined the footpaths as we marched down to the quay
This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean
And there's me in me slouch hat with me SLR and greens
God help me - I was only nineteen
From Vung Tau riding Chinooks to the dust at Nui Dat
I'd been in and out of choppers now for months
And we made our tents a home, V.B. and pinups on the lockers
And an Asian orange sunset through the scrub
And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can't get…
The Change is Fraternity Life
There are over 350 Greek fraternities and sororities classified as social organization, nationwide today. With so many Greek organizations at nearly every college campus, one must wonder, “How did it all begin”. Every fraternity has a beginning and the majority of them have the same story to go along with the founding. The founders of these fraternities are some of the most respected and brave men to accomplish such a big object, knowing what consequences may come…
Texas State fits me best because of their abundance of different opportunities. My personal favorite about Texas State is that there are a variety of education programs, how homelike the living areas are and the location of the school.
Texas State is located in San Marcos, Texas between Austin and San Antonio. It is a four year public university. Texas State has the 5th highest retention and graduate within 6 years. An average of 32,572 students enrolls each year. Around 62% of Texas States students…
many others around the world, it is outrageous to think that a circle, of all things, has such an imperfect geometric constant. Pi simply does not live up to such a level of perfection; however all is not lost, as there is one constant that does: τ – tau.
Firstly, let us take a look at pi’s fundamental fault: its imperfection as the circle constant. As all of us know, pi is the ratio between the circumference and diameter of a circle, thereby making the circumference equal to 2pi multiplied by the…

Keep Fraternities Alive
Fraternities, which include 5346 Chapters on about 800 campuses(North American Interfraterp, 135), play important roles in University life. However, these Greek life groups are highly involved in alcohol-fueled scenes (Perez-Pena&Yaccino, 2014, p.116) and some people suggest they should be totally banned due to the accidents and troubles they are continually causing. But since frats make positive contribution…
Attention Getter: Nothing is as it seems. Since 1825 this statement has been proven true since all but three United States Presidents were frat boys during their time in college.
Ronald Regan was a TKE which is one of the fraternities on our own campus. Erin Andrews was a ZTA and a finalist on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" Season 10 in 2010. The first female astronaunt and the first female senator were also both Greek. Everywhere you look you see people who are Greek. More…
solution; this usually creates conflict. During low diversity and interdependence, people may agree on things more easily, but may not come up with the best solution because of the lack of opinions.
I am not currently an active member in the co-ed fraternity Alpha Rho Chi, but during my years in the interior design program at UNL I was. When these concepts are applied to Alpha Rho Chi, I've concluded that we tended to lean more towards low diversity and interdependence. Since most of us were part of…
businesses in Texas, and how did Texas oil discoveries affect the national oil market?
As the Texas oil industry grew, so did related industries. Some companies began producing oil by-products such as petrochemicals. Others produced pipelines, barrels, and oil-field equipment. As these companies began moving into oil towns such as Houston, Beaumont, and Port Arthur, they further expanded the local economies. Some moved into small towns, quickly turning them into cities. In North Texas the town of…

Omega Paw Case
February 10, 2011
Omega Paw is a corporation, which the owner/inventor, Michael Ebert, sells the “Self Cleaning Litter Box.” Michael aspires to reach goals of future sales of $1.7 million by December 1996, $3 million by December 1997, and $5.7 million by December 1998. With the cat population continuously rising as well as his product being the first to be introduced in the United States, these goals are not farfetched.…
