(U.S.) Memorial Day Office Closing
The Fraternity, Theta Foundation, and Fraternity Housing Corporation offices will be closed Friday, May 27, and Monday, May 30, in recognition of the (U.S.) Memorial Day holiday.
If you find yourself irresistibly drawn to the Travel Channel whenever you sit down with the remote control, if your bookcase is crammed with Rick Steves’s guidebooks, or if you’ve ever accumulated enough frequent flyer miles to actually cover the cost of a flight, then you will find lots to enjoy in the Summer 2015 Theta magazine.
Our cover Theta, Tracey Long Carisch, Beta/Indiana, and her family traveled in 25 countries in 15 months on an adventure they dubbed “100 Ways to Change the World.” During the two to six weeks they spent in each location, they became part of the community by participating in service efforts, from habitat restoration in New Zealand to assisting with preschool classes in Fiji.
The subject of our In Her Own Words feature—Louise Lev Geil, Beta Iota/Colorado—is also an enthusiastic traveler. In addition to skiing black-diamond runs, she has been trekking in Nepal. Twice.
Finally, our “How To” expert, Lisa Smith, Delta Kappa/LSU, offers tips on taking great photographs, whether you’re using a DSLR to shoot Mount Everest or a smartphone to shoot the family vacation.
If you’re receiving the print version of the magazine, it should have already arrived in your mailbox. If you’re not, an explanation of our distribution system can be found on our website. That’s where you can also access the online version of all issues, dating back to 2006.
Whether you’re reading the online or print version, we hope you enjoy the current issue of our magazine!
