Mission We aim to bring together the Russian and greater Eastern-European and Eurasian community at RIT and promote our mutual culture through activites, events, film screenings, and games. The program provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying learned classroom theories in a challenging competition that tests their designs to reengineer an existing snowmobile to reduce emissions and noise.
There are two categories in the Internal Combustion in which teams can compete: gasoline or diesel. The intent of the competition is to develop a snowmobile that is acceptable for use in environmentally sensitive areas such as our National Parks or other pristine areas. The modified snowmobiles are expected to be quiet, and emit significantly less unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide than current production snowmobiles, without significantly increasing oxides of nitrogen emissions.
Since higher, more noticeable emission particles are also a characteristic of diesel engines, there will be an additional emissions requirement for controlling soot. The modified snowmobiles are also expected to be cost-effective and comfortable for the operator to drive. The intent of the competition is to design a touring snowmobile that will primarily be ridden on groomed snowmobile trails.
Modern snowmobiles are engineered to meet the current standards for noise and emissions. Teams are expected to add innovative solutions for improving on the performance of the base sled that they start with. Design judges written and verbal will be looking for innovations and incorporating that into their scores.

Mission RIT SPEX Astrodynamics is a multidisciplinary group that focuses on tracking celestial objects, learning about orbital mechanics, space technology, and more.
Students will get hands on experience with optical systems, observing the sky, astrophotography and data collection. They can also learn about space and spacecraft missions. The astrodynamics team is responsible for developing the expertise and techniques for tracking fast moving Low-Earth Orbit LEO objects. We use optical telescopes to record LEO object orbital elements then use that data with Orbital Simulation software to model their orbits over time.
We also use a 80mm refractor scope as a spotting scope mounted coaxially to the LX We are also acquiring an equatorial mounted scope. This would be lower power but would simplify observations of slow moving objects. It would also be ideal for community outreach events since it is easier to use. We require a high tracking speed to keep up with fast moving objects and cubesats have a very low apparent magnitude. The 80mm refractor is a good complement to the main scope. Its wide field of view makes acquiring targets easier than through the main scope and it is powerful enough to be used for observations separately.
Sensors We have 3 imaging sensors that we use for observations. We chose this sensor because of its relatively low weight and slim profile compared to other DSLRs. This allows for unrestricted movement of the telescope while the sensor is attached. The sensor is operated remotely via a computer connected with USB. We are currently using Canon's proprietary software for controlling the sensor. This CMOS sensor is lightweight and has a slim profile allowing it to be integrated on every scope we have.
It is designed to be used for astrophotography and features an integrated 1. Our tertiary sensor is an old Logitech webcam. It was initially designed for video chat but we have modified it to be used for astrophotography purposes. We are currently acquiring a 12mm to 1. Mission We play spikeball!

Celebrate when someone tells you to do things to yourself that are anatomically impossible! The more failed prospecting calls you make, the more chance you have of building a huge list of prospective members. Cold calling is a numbers game.
You will find some success, but it will be buried beneath a lot of disappointing hang-ups, caller-ID blocks, and disinterested people on the other end of the line. The more bad calls you happen upon though, the better the chance the next call will be a huge success. Me and my brothers are doing this awesome camping trip this weekend deep in the woods. Would you like to come and learn more about our brotherhood? Chapters we have worked with over the summer have used trial and error to learn that better relationships are built with potential members through small activities dinner, coffee, lunch, etc.
Focus on small activities — lots and lots of small activities with lots and lots of potential members so that you can really get to know these people in comfortable settings. For other relationship building opportunities during the summer, consider: 1 Partnering with the university to offer house tours during orientation, 2 Offer to take parents and student out to breakfast before their day of summer orientation, or 3 Make home visits to the best prospects so that mom and dad can see how great members of your chapter are.
Lesson 4: Mules Are on the Beach I wish I could say that during the summer the apathetic members of your chapters get energized and are willing to make cold calls, help with recruitment activities, and actively build relationships with tons of incoming students. But they do not. And they probably will not no matter what you do. Get over it. Get to work. Overall, the most challenging part of running a successful summer recruitment effort is managing the chapter when many of your members are spread out around the region, state, country and sometimes world.
There are not easy answers to figure this out, just questions for you to consider. Who will call prospects? How will the chapter know who is doing what and what results they are getting? Who will be at recruitment functions? How will names get added to the master names list? How will multiple chapter members get to know prospects in far away places? A vital conversation to have as you are planning for summer recruitment should be about membership selection. Who will give out bids? On what authority? What is the measurable values-based selection criteria on which we will determine who deserves an invitation for membership?
How will the chapter know who is being considered for a bid, who is getting a bid, who has gotten a bid, who accepted a bid, and who did not accept a bid? Are we o. Should we wait until the Fall to actually give out bids, and only build relationships during the summer?
Summer recruitment can be a great way to increase the quantity of quality members in your chapter, but it takes a comprehensive plan, strong focus on everyday behaviors, and a lot of stick-to-it-ness. The biggest mistake I see fraternities make during summer recruitment is failing to develop relationships appropriately. Most groups dive right into asking potential members about fraternity before they even get to know them at all. Bobby, you interrupted my dinner, I do not know who you are, I barely know what a fraternity is, and why should I tell you what I have or have not thought about?!
Oh, and by the way… yes, I have thought about fraternity life. You can not jump from 1 to 5. Develop the relationship. Phase 1 is filled with prospecting cold calls, Facebook prospecting, and high school visits. The objective in Phase 1 is to get the opportunity to meet face-to-face as many incoming students as possible. Use the sample call scripts we provide to reach out to as many people as possible during this phase. Do high school visits to the top 20 feeder high schools for your college. Build Facebook groups for incoming students. Try every technique you can to simply get an opportunity to meet face-to-face with potential members.
Your calls and presentations should not yet be about fraternity recruitment. Instead, offer the incoming students you are talking to something of value to them i. Phase 2 is about building friendships through small, normal, unintimidating activities. Your job here is just to hang out with potential members in really simple, really friendly, really easy activities. Think: dinner, coffee, lunch, pick-up-sports in their town, dinner, coffee, lunch, dinner, coffee, lunch oh, did I say those already?!
The objective of Phase 2 is to honestly just get to know these people.
Sure, everyone will probably know that you are doing fraternity recruitment, but there is no need to be high pressure during this phase. Note on Parents: This phase of the summer recruitment process is a great time to focus on parents. Talk their language. Connect them with your parents. Recognize that they are looking for you to demonstrate not just talk about responsible behavior that will help their child become successful.
Your website, mailing materials, home visits, and phone calls should all be prepared with parents deeply in mind. During Phase 3, there is no doubt that fraternity recruitment is happening. These events offer an opportunity to introduce your now friends to the fraternity. Most of your members should probably know the potential members by now, and the events or outings will be natural, fun, and comfortable for everyone.
During this phase, ASK! Either pre-close If we were to ask you to join, what would you say? We wanted to make sure we shared these great summer recruitment tips with all our readers. Thanks Alex for letting us share your great ideas! Part 1 Think about it. If you have never done summer recruitment it may feel a little bit strange. The goal of this series of blog posts is to take out the guess work and give you a path to follow.
Read more here. Part 2 After covering the basics, the next step is to set up the structure that will propel your chapter to success in summer recruitment. Remember that the key to recruitment is making friends. Therefore the foundation for your summer recruitment plan should be to create opportunities to build relationships.
Crazy right? The real magic happens once those men you recruited turn around and start recruiting for you. Phired Up has written a lot about the overwhelming success of the Recruitment Scholarship as a tactic to drive names onto an your Names List. We even have an example scholarship application in our free resources. Solicit applications through high school counselors, mailers, social media, direct campaigns to lists of incoming students, etc. Interview all the candidates in person a great first recruitment conversation.
Invite them to other small activities with you and your brothers. Summer Calling Scripts: During summer recruitment for many fraternities, prospecting calls are an important component of their recruitment plan. Phired Up recruitment experts have written two sample scripts for use during those calls. These scripts can be downloaded here. It is important to focus on the objectives of these calls.
It is a call to a come across as a helpful student, and b get an opportunity to meet the person face-to-face. Here are some tips for prospecting calls these were originally from an E-mail that we had written to a student who asked for advice on summer cold calls. I cannot emphasize this enough, practice makes perfect. When you are making these calls you need a legitimate reason to be calling, and that reason should not be to benefit you.
Offer a scholarship, service opportunity, tour of campus, invitation to a welcome lunch, etc. Have a reason to call, and offer the person you are calling something of value to them. Get a Time to Meet — You are not closing any deals over the phone. A cold call is meant to set up a time to meet again soon. Love it, need it, bathe in rejection. If you let a failed call get you jacked up for making the next call a success, the rest of this will be a lot easier.
Dynamic Recruitment is AWESOME for deferred recruiting chapters, however there are a few extra tips we would like to share to truly maximize the opportunities that a deferred recruitment process provides. At least 1 phone call session, at least 10 small activities with prospects, at least 1 open activity not at the house — e. Or take the Sigma Rho chapter at Northern Michigan Univeristy — these guys walk dogs at the local humane society every Saturday morning — this gives them a great activity to invite prospects to every week.
What chapter events that you are planning for this fall can you include non-Greeks in? Can you host a major philanthropic event that involves lots of students across campus and meet and build relationships with them during? If you host social gatherings this fall, will you write down all the names, contact information, and conversation details you can after each event?
Help your top freshmen prospects get involved in other student organizations, help them build great friendships, help them network with student leaders and university administrators. On too many campuses chapters feel RUSHed to determine which prospects are qualified for membership in the first week of the fall. You have the luxury of really researching the qualifications for membership of each of the prospects. Get written applications. Interview them. Check references.
At least have a few deep zone conversations to make sure you understand the qualifications that each prospect brings to the table. You should know two things for sure come January about your entire prospect list: 1 If you ask them to join, will they pre-close? I have been spending much of this fall visiting dozens of colleges and universities asking fraternity men and sorority women questions. The most interesting part of this question is that it is answered the same way across a hugely diverse range of schools. From the largest to the smallest, the highest to the lowest percentage of Greek Life; members of Fraternities I have interviewed almost unanimously attribute their recruitment success to these three things.
Again, across the board the answer to this question has three parts to it. Many of us came to college never wanting to join Greek Life, and through a personal connection with a member who introduced us to our current chapter, we decided to join. For more, read this and this. Lately, I have been teaching the power of a good story. We cannot fully understand something we have not experienced. We cannot fully comprehend something we have not lived… but we can understand the feelings you express when you tell a story. So today I want to say: tell your story. Tell your truth. Be bold enough to be vulnerable and let them see what you are made of.
Vulnerability is the key to connection. Connection is the key to recruitment. As we close out August, the busiest month of our work… I have to thank all of the people who let me shamelessly tell stories about them without their permission. As a people who communicate for a living we have all learned that stories can be powerful in articulating a concept that is complicated. So, thank you to my Father, John F. McNamara who I repeatedly exploit through pictures. For those of you who have heard me, you know that my love for my embarrassing father is genuine and powerful.
She does not know that I tell the whole world our story of a subway ride and a little boy who loves his turtle. She also does not know that I tell half of the world about the most vulnerable moment in her life when her 7 year relationship came crashing down around her and I was the one she chose to help pull it back together. Thanks girl! I have spoken to men and women everywhere and I have learned that the true stories you tell are powerful. Your story is powerful. Your story will make a person join your organization, but you have to be bold enough to tell it unedited.
Your chapter exists through you. It exists because of you. Your story is your values. Your story is what people join. People join People. People join your story. How do you find your story? Answer these to start: When was the moment you wanted to join?

For example, I am a Kappa Delta, we believe that confidence in women and girls can change the world. My belief in confidence persists in every story I tell. Confidence is the main theme in every story of my life. This is not even on purpose! Speak loudly about what matters to you. Be bold enough to tell the real story. Be vulnerable enough to put your heart in a story. Your story is powerful, and when you are confident enough to talk about how your organization has shaped your life… people will sign up en mass to get them some of that.
They will join for the right reasons. Talk about what their hair is like, how tall they are, their weird laugh.
