alpha epsilon delta

On February 20, 1971 the South Carolina
Gamma Chapter was established at Clemson Uni-
versity as the I 00th chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta,
international premedical honor society. Members
are given an opportunity to develop a well-rounded
personality and qualities of initiative, leadership,
and self-education through participation in chapter
activities such as a freshman premedical orienta-
tion program, guest speakers, and films.

Alpha Epsilon Delta is primarily an honor society,
but it also has an educational objective — to stimu-
late an appreciation of the importance of premed-
ical education and to promote cooperation and
contacts between premedical and medical students
and educators. The chapter attempts to bind to-
gether similarly interested students and to use its
knowledge for the benefit of health organizations
and the community.

alpha lambda delta

In November, 1971, the local honor sorority.
Phi Sigma Omega became affiliated with the na-
tional honor society. Alpha Lambda Delta, which

Membership is restricted to freshman women with
a minimum or normal student load who at the end
of the first semester or the entire freshman year
have earned a grade average of 3.5.

The chapters initiate their own particular activity
programs. The National Council favors the groups'
sponsoring only such activities which foster a whole-
some respect for achievement of scholarship. The
purpose of membership is to recognize in freshman
students potentiality for scholarly development and
to encourage them in the pursuit of learning.



alpha zeta

Alpha Zeta, the honorary brotherhood of stu-
dents in agriculture and related sciences, is a na-
tional service fraternity stressing scholarship, lead-

students enrolled in the agricultural sciences who
meet minimunn scholastic requirements and have
displayed outstanding character and leadership

Local service projects in the past have included
monitoring selected study rooms in the Plant and
Animal Sciences Building and maintaining an honor
board of outstanding students in agriculture. In
addition to these projects, this year's plans call
for establishing a sister organization to honor wo-
men agricultural students and starting a freshman
counselling program.

Alpha Zeta recognizes the many problems of the
world today — malnutrition, poverty, declining na-
tural resources — and it seeks to promote agricul-
tural betterment in the worldwide community
through its members' educations and professions.

blUG kSy TAD STANLEY, President

To express one's own life and character by what he is able to accomplish for his
fellowman is conveyed by the phrase — "Serving I live." This is the motto of Blue
Key National Honor Fraternity, the goal each member strives to continually follow,
the actions each member displayed before being invited into the organization. The
membership of Blue Key is comprised of those students who are leaders in scholar-
ship and student activities at Clemson.

While members are actively involved in other phases of college life, the fraternal
bonds within Blue Key remain strong. Each year the brothers join together to
plan, direct, and coordinate Tigerama. Tigerama is a student variety production
traditionally presented on the eve of Homecoming. This year's Tigerama was a
Halloween special with the theme being "Clemson — 1984." Although this is Blue
Key's main service to the school, the members endeavor to uphold Blue Key's motto
while at Clemson and to stimulate the ambition for intellectual achievements and
the desire to serve Clemson and fellow students.
