What really matters in a first impression?

If you ask many online career forums or older mentors, they’ll immediately jump to a few standard tips: Smile. Give a firm handshake. Make eye contact. Dress to impress. Seems simple enough, right? Kushaan Shah, Maryland ’12 – Life gives essential advice on making a great first impression.

The Singing of Fraternity Songs

If you joined Alpha Kappa Psi after the 1970s, you’d probably be surprised to know the fraternity had a rich tradition of singing songs. All 25 songs with music featured in the 1956 songbook, Songs of Alpha Kappa Psi, was recently performed and recorded by Patrick Northcraft, Toledo ‘13-Life.
