Of IIOI i l I' b 'd 1. I ik o 1 gb All sophomores at one time or another were sked the question: "Are you going to pledge a 'lub next year?" Answers varied from "No vayl" to "I can't wait!" And the reasons behind -ach answer were just as diverse. People had diverse attitudes about social zlubs, but of those who pledged, the attraction eemed to be opportunities to meet people. Michelle Hodges, sophomore from Abilene, aid, "I pledged Siggies so I could get to know he upperclassmen and spend time with them. j l'he nearest thing I found was that I enjoyed 'eally getting to know all the members. There were so many different people and different personalities." Melinda Pesqueira, junior from San Diego, Calif., gave :he same reason for devoting eight weeks to be initiated into Kojo Kai. "Pledging gave me a good chance to meet more people and to get to know them better outside of the lassroomf' Involvement was an attraction Mark Stephen, sophomore from Houston, saw in pledging Galaxy men's social club. "I anted to spend more time with school activities, and club rovided me several opportunities to become involved in ifferent projects," he said. But not everyone pledged a club. In fact, only about 800 out of the 4,500 students claimed allegiance to one of the 13 social clubs on campus. Some people pledged a club only to change their minds and depledge. For some it was the best alternative. "The reason I pledged is that I needed to become more involved with other people," said Elaine Kinzie, sophomore from Ennis. "But I depledged. There were a lot of different reasons why I did, but mostly I Couldrft deal with all the pressure to keep my grades up." Elaine was not "anti-club," as some referred to those who were against social clubs and their existence. "I feel mixed about club now," she said. "It's fine for some people. If you have the time, it's a great way to meet so many people. But there comes a point when you have to prioritize." Tammy Fielder, senior from Brownwood, never pledged a social club. "I didn't feel the need to pledge. I saw a lot of things I didn't like in social clubs. People seemed to form their own little groups, excluding others," she said. if M5- ina in Ni?

Many struggled with the decision of whether to pledge. It was definitely something sophomores had to decide for themselves. Some said simply: club is not for everyone. Others wouldn't have missed it for the world. And still others never seemed too concerned -- maybe next semester. - Elise Smith trip gf, :j p ,ts lit., Hand, Brenda Hanson, Paul Harbour, Ricky Hargrove, Geri Harper, Katie Harrell, Byron Harrell, Leah Harrisulohn Harrison, Homer Harrison, Kevin Heard, Paul Heath,-james Heatly, Teresa Heinrich, Evelyn Helgesen, Alise Herbert, Holly Sophomores X 85
