As a freshman last year,
Chamberlain filled out a rush appli
cation, but she decided not to partici
pate. She said she wasn’t familiar
with sororities last year, but she was
ready to get involved this year.
“I think the sorority will give me
more opportunities to do volunteer
activities that wouldn't be available to
me if I wasn’t in a sorority,”
Chamberlain said.
Like Chamberlain, Sasek also
joined the house to become more
involved. Sasek said she liked meet
ing other students and seeing the skits
that members of Gamma Phi Beta put
on for them. Sasek said she thought

the skits showed what the sorority
was all about.
White also liked rush and said it
was better than she expected.
“Every one of the girls was so
special,” White said. “You met a lot of
girls just like yourself.”
Pledges weren’t the only ones
who were busy during rush. Sorority
members and Greek Affairs were
busy making sure rush went smooth
Shannon Fletcher, a senior psy
chology major and Gamma Phi Beta
assistant rush chairwoman, said she
remembered feeling some pressure
when she rushed.
Sorority members try to be
friendly and honest with the new
members, she said.

“We have been in their shoes and
know how it feels,” Fletcher said.
Lexie Mueller, a junior agribusi
ness major and member of Alpha
Omicron Pi, said she was relaxed dur
ing rush. Mueller said her sorority
would be like a family away from
home, especially now that she was 28
new sisters.
Greek Affairs director Linda
Schwartzkopf also thought rush went
Schwartzkopf said 568 women
turned in rush applications, which
was nine more than last year. She said
she was especially happy with the

great merit when it comes to judicial
Zatechka said students and facul
ty were frustrated with the judicial
process at the university last spring
after early controversy over discipli
nary action of a university-affiliated
student group brought the three sepa
rate judicial boards into question.
In January, Sigma Chi fraternity
was accused of burning a 6-foot cross
during a pre-initiation ceremony and
was not punished for the incident by
the university. The fraternity fell
under the jurisdiction of the greek
judicial board.
One judicial board will also
streamline judicial proceedings,
resulting in a more effective and effi
cient process, Zatechka said.
Before, a student heard in the
housing or greek judicial court could
appeal to the all-university judicial
board, he said. The same student
could then appeal to the university
appeals board on grounds of insuffi
cient evidence, inappropriate pro
ceedings of the all-university board
or inappropriate punishment received
for the gravity of the alleged miscon
Now, only one appeal is possible
from the all-university board to the
appeals board, Zatechka said.
The new board also will allow
students easier access to the all-uni
versity board. Before, a student who
lived in a campus residence hall or
who was a member of a fraternity or
sorority could receive a hearing with
the all-university board only if they
appealed their respective subordinate
judicial board’s decision.
Zatechka said the university
decided to consolidate the judicial
boards after a team consisting of
internal and external members
reviewed UNL’s student judicial
process and suggested the move last

“The university ought to speak as
one voice on the values we want to
stand for,” Zatechka said.
