Congratulations to Mr. Steven Nguyen for being chosen by our chapter as Brother of the Month for March 2014! Hear what Lambdas are saying about Steven:
"As a newly crossed brother (but older by age), Steven’s determination to make the most out of his remaining time as an active is inspiring. His constant "lead by example" attitude radiates not only within his class but has also spread throughout the active house."
"Steven is a selfless brother who jumps headfirst to help those in need. He continuously strives to improve the house in any capacity he can."
"If Steven puts his name behind a project or a commitment, you can bet he’ll get done. He’s very focused and knows how to take charge like a Lambda should."

Why ASUW Resolution R-20-30 Matters to Multicultural Greeks

image

The most recent bill, R-20-30, urged the reversal of the international student fee, which was approximately $45 a quarter (excluding summer quarter) for international students that was put towards certain resources, some of which benefit both international students and domestic students. We debated this resolution for about a month and a half. Last night, we stayed an hour later than usual to make sure the legislation reached a verdict before spring break. By a vote of 61-27-3, the resolution passed with overwhelming support. 

The implications of this resolution are pretty substantial because many international students felt that this fee was over-burdening and no other minority group (e.g., disabled, LGBTQ) pays for their extra accommodations, so why should international students have to pay an additional fee on top of their already expensive tuition? Students against the bill were worried about how the services would get funded, while people in support of the bill urged the ASUW senators to consider its ramifications: it makes international students feel unwelcomed and even prejudiced. Thus, many senators from different minority groups and greek organizations (KSA/CSSA/TOSA and UGC organizations) urged the ASUW Senate as a whole to consider how this disenfranchises minorities at a university that embraces and encourages diversity.

Bottom line: this matters to multicultural Greeks because our membership comprises students of international backgrounds. Lambda Phi Epsilon is an internationally-recognized fraternity, and we stand firmly against unfair treatment for any of our members regardless of their international status.
