THE MAROON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 VOL 85, NO. 10 WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM Alpha Delta Gamma fraternity springs back By ALETHIA PICCIOLA THE MAROON When the Epsilon Chapter of the Alpha Delta Gamma Fraternity had their charter revoked by the Student Government Association last spring for violating rush rules, no one expected them to return to Loyola's campus any time soon. No one except for the ADGs, that is. Now, less than a year later, things look favorable for ADG, as they have convinced many that they have changed and that SGA should reinstate them on campus at their hearing in December. When SGA revoked their charter, all ADG privileges were taken away, including the right to wear their jerseys on campus and host any events related to the fraternity. For a while, the fraternity resorted to wearing jerseys that said "AmDG," which stands for "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam." This is the Latin version of the Society of Jesus' motto, "For the Greater Glory of God." On top of having their privileges revoked, the ADG fraternity house, which had been theirs since 1976, burned down in January. But the ADGs have tried to turn their bad luck and reputation around with a fresh start With no adviser, no house and no fraternity privileges, they started to reconstruct the fraternity from scratch. The brothers devised a step-by-step plan to slowly regain each privilege that was lost As of now, the ADGs have gained back all their privileges except being officially reinstated on campus. They can now use the ADG name in intramural sports, wear their ADG jerseys and sponsor events on campus. The plan to achieve reinstatement includes set hours of community service that each brother must complete, such as cleaning trash every Thursday on Broadway and Freret streets where their burned out house stands. The fraternity has completed more than 250 hours of community service since August They are also planning a canned food drive for Thanksgiving this week. The ADGs have also displayed more Loyola community involvement this semester.

We use a system of high temperature hot water to heat buildings (the temperatures can range up to 320 degrees) rather than steam. We are replacing the pipes that run the water around campus. Their condition has only gotten worse post-Katrina,' the Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J., university president, told The Maroon. Board seeks new blood Trustee nominations focus on candidates' values, involvement at Loyola By SALLY TUNMER THE MAROON It's time to nominate new faces in the race for Loyola's Board of Trustees. Nominations are made annually for candidates to be elected by the Board and inducted in May. Candidates to be elected will serve a three-year term. The Board has 35 members and nine honorary members. There is a pool of potential nominees already approved to be elected, said the Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J., university president.Wildes emphasized the importance of continuously building the pool to ensure solid nominations. The Board looks for people to bring variety to the pool to make it more diverse. A desirable composition includes a mix of gender, race, geographical locations and professions ranging from business to education, Wildes said. Desired qualifications include the ability to make gifts and help obtain gifts that will inspire others to follow in the financial support of Loyola, commitment to the values and goals of Loyola and a personal value system which is compatible with Loyola's values and a strong belief that the Jesuit education system is an important force in society.see BOARD, page 3 see ADGr page 3 A LOYOLA TRADITION SINCL I 923 • "LOR A GRLATLR LOYOLA" Life & Times KJ6I The lost art of hooking up? 1 Is the college past-time becoming a thing of the past? page 5 loyouhaboon.com MAROON DIRECTORY: CALENDAR, page 2 | LIFE & TIMES, page 5 | SPORTS, page 8 | OPINION, page 10 | NEWS TIPS: 865-3535 CORRECTION: In the Nov. 13 issue of The Maroon, Mark LaHood's name was misspelled in the article 'Res Life fires up dorm health, safety inspections.
