LGC Has Elections, Successful Rush

By Ray C. He

ASSOCIATE NEWS EDITOR

A total of 55 people joined the five independent living groups this year. In addition, the Living Group Council has elected new officers.

Epsilon Theta received nine pledges, Fenway House received five pledges, pika received 16 pledges, Student House received 12 pledges, and The Women’s Independent Living Group received 13 pledges, according to a press release from the LGC.

Compared to the Interfraternity Council average of 9.8 initiates per fraternity, the ILGs averaged approximately the same with an average of 11 new members per ILG.

Some new members in the ILGs are part of the Cambridge-MIT Exchange or are study-abroad students, including one in ET, three in pika, four in Student House, and one in WILG.

Newly-elected LGC officers include Claudia E. Steadman ’05 for speaker, Trevor D. McKee G for moderator, Robert H. Speer ’06 for secretary, Andrew J. Morten ’05 for treasurer, and Susannah M. Dorfman ‘05 and David S. Glasser ‘06 as rush chairs.

The LGC has not met with its new officers since the election, so plans for the coming year will not be decided until it meets in the fall, Steadman said.
