Sometimes writing a title for the post is difficult. Today’s title takes the cake for lame, but it will have to do.
Thank you, Delta Gamma, for a wonderful visual on the difference between alumni and alumnae!
Twenty-four years after his death, Dr. Seuss – Theodor Seuss Geisel, has another best-seller. The manuscript of What Pet Should I Get? was found by his widow shortly after his death. It was released yesterday and became the #1 selling book on Amazon.com. Geisel was initiated into the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter at Dartmouth College. See http://wp.me/p20I1i-bh.
Two Chi Omega authors were in the news recently. Harper Lee, author of the award winning To Kill a Mockingbird, released Go Set a Watchman. Lee was initiated into the at the University of Alabama.
Ann Rule, true crime author, died this week at the age of 83. She was a member of the Williamette University chapter of Chi Omega. She later received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington.
I feel like the Gladys Kravitz of the GLO twitterdom. Whenever someone posts one of these graphics in order to provide reasons to join a fraternity or sorority, I try to use it as a teachable moment. After all, why would anyone use downright false information as an incentive to join a GLO? Another graphic has emerged using incorrect information. It’s the first time I’ve seen it. All three share the totally erroneous “all but two U.S. Presidents” statement (see http://wp.me/p20I1i-Vb). The top one also has the incorrect first female astronaut information, among other things (see http://wp.me/p20I1i-le for female astronaut/sorority women info).
It joins these other two graphics which also have misinformation.
And here’s another graphic containing misinformation. I am not sure why providing the image of a red cup does anyone any good.
If anyone would like to create a terrific looking visual with correct information, it would make me very happy and I’d even find a spot for it on my blog’s homepage.
