If you are at high risk and you have the capacity to do so, you can also access the submission system through a secure operating system called Tails.
Tails is an operating system launched from a USB stick or a DVD that aim to leaves no traces when the computer is shut down after use and automatically routes your internet traffic through Tor.
Our submission system works hard to preserve your anonymity, but we recommend you also take some of your own precautions. Please review these basic guidelines. If you have a very large submission, or a submission with a complex format, or are a high-risk source, please contact us. In our experience it is always possible to find a custom solution for even the most seemingly difficult situations.
If the computer you are uploading from could subsequently be audited in an investigation, consider using a computer that is not easily tied to you. Technical users can also use Tails to help ensure you do not leave any records of your submission on the computer. If you have any issues talk to WikiLeaks. We are the global experts in source protection — it is a complex field. Even those who mean well often do not have the experience or expertise to advise properly.
This includes other media organisations. If you are a high-risk source, avoid saying anything or doing anything after submitting which might promote suspicion.
In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour. If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used.
In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives retain data even after a secure erasure.
If you used flash media to store sensitive data, it is important to destroy the media. If you do this and are a high-risk source you should make sure there are no traces of the clean-up, since such traces themselves may draw suspicion.

The value is in going through the experience and your time as an active afterwards, not knowing what happens for what amounts to a very short amount of time and maybe learning a couple fancy handshakes.

Why have so few fraternity secret rituals been exposed on the internet, given that there are 9 million year-old members of fraternities and sororities in the US, some become disillusioned, and all of them can post anonymously on the internet?

What Is the Meaning of "AOE" in Alpha Phi?
I'll second what Jack Anderson said. I've been able to find a copy of my fraternity's ritual guide online took a modicum of effort, but despite headquarters' best attempts, it's still out there.
While it has secret information about symbolism and certain phrases not the grip, however it does not convey the meaning to a non-brother because the ritual is essentially stage instructions and a script to create an experience for the candidate. It doesn't even have the motto and password written in it, but unfortunately whoever posted it also entered what should go in the blank spaces the con Continue Reading. It doesn't even have the motto and password written in it, but unfortunately whoever posted it also entered what should go in the blank spaces the conniving bastard.
So, while you might learn our secret motto, password, and other trivial facts through Internet research, unless you experience initiation first hand, none of it really holds any significance.
Footnote: Though I don't believe a non-member gains anything critical or deteriorates my interpretation of our ritual by knowing the secrets, it does enrage me that people who took an oath to protect our secrets until their death would go ahead and compromise over a century of tradition, and the fierce dedication the best of our brothers have to the values we swore to live by.
Fraternal relationships are an irrational, emotional phenomenon, after all. Should college fraternities be banned? Can you go to a frat party if you're not in a frat or sorority?The fraternity practices many traditions.
Due to active expansion efforts, Alpha Sigma Phi continues to offer services and opportunities to over 10, undergraduate students and well overliving members. Alpha Sigma Phi was founded by three men at Yale College in as a secret sophomore society composed of many of the school's poets, athletes, and scholars. He was a seventh generation descendant of Pierre Manigault, a French Huguenot who fled La Rochelle, France, because of religious persecution with the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, in These Manigaults immigrated to South Carolina, where they became very prosperous in the occupations of planting crops, trading of planted goods and slaves at the Old Slave Martas well as merchandising.
Stephen Ormsby Rhea was the son of John Rhea, an important cotton planter of Louisiana who helped open the disputed territory of West Florida and made it a part of the US and the state of Louisiana, through his involvement in the French and Indian war. Horace Spangler Weiserof York, Pennsylvaniawas a descendant of Conrad Weiseralso a refugee from Europe who became famous in the French and Indian Warrepresenting several provisional chapters in treaty negotiations with Native Americans.
Manigault and Rhea met at St. Paul's Preparatory School near Flushing, New Yorkwhere both were members of the same literary society and were preparing themselves for admission to Yale. Weiser attended a private school in New Havenand he met Rhea early in his freshman year, who introduced him to Manigault.
Manigault was very much interested in the class society system at Yale and noted the class fraternities provided experience for their members and prepared them for competition in literary contests.

The sophomore class there had only one society, Kappa Sigma Theta, which displayed an attitude of superiority toward non-fraternity men. Manigault revealed to his friends Rhea and Weiser a plan for founding another sophomore society. Rhea agreed and enlisted Weiser to become the three founders of Alpha Sigma Phi. Their first official meeting was held in Manigault's room on Chapel Street on December 6, The constitution and ritual were then written and the fraternity pin was designed.
The first pledge class, of 14 members, was initiated on June 24, Inthe editors of the Tomahawk were expelled after violating faculty orders to cease publication.
However, the rivalry between the organizations continued untilwhen Kappa Sigma Theta was suppressed by the faculty. The first expansion effort was to Amherst CollegeMassachusetts, inbut it only lasted about six months, at which time due to faculty opposition at Amherst, the parent chapter requested that it dissolve and return the constitution.HOW TO JOIN A BLACK FRATERNITY - ALPHA PHI ALPHA
However, a fragmentary document in the Yale library suggests that Beta was chartered in at Harvard University but lived a very short life due to a wave of puritanism.
The chapter at Harvard was revived in as Beta Chapter but only survived about 20 years; the charter was withdrawn due to Harvard's anti-fraternity environment. When the Amherst College chapter was restored init was designated as either Gamma or Delta Chapter. When the chapter at Marietta College was chartered init was given the Delta designation, despite the parent chapter being aware of this discrepancy.
Former chapter presidents William B. Whittlesey and George B. Turner fell on the battlefields of Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain. They willed their personal possessions and their swords to the chapter, which treasured those mementos until the chapter closed for two decades in the mids.
From through the sophomore members of Alpha Sigma Phi were elected in almost equal numbers by the two stronger Junior Class fraternities, with a smaller number going to the third.Do you know anyone who just. Once you suck, there is no going back. You suck forever and everyone who knows you or about you knows that you suck.
Sucking is like being a race, or a religion. It sticks with you for your entire life and there is no way to get rid of it.
There are just too many people mainly Freshmen who start off on the wrong foot and start to suck. Here are some ways to grab a squeaky clean reputation and keep it that way:. If you are a senior I may give you some leeway on this one because when you are older you realize that nobody really cares what you do and even if they did they would never say anything because you are a senior and they are not.
If you are a freshman, stay away from the hard drugs and the cigarettes. Also, a sure fire way to attract negative attention, start asking people for drugs. Drugs are bad, mmkkay? The only reason why that senior hottie is giving you attention is so he can get you up to his bunked queen mattress to do the no pants dance. You think that after you give it up he is going to call you again?
The answer is no. The only thing you are going to get is really jealous when you see him scamming on your sorority sister two days later. In other words, you are allowed to hook up guys, just make sure they are not all in the same frat. Make sure to spread yourself across the fraternities, do not spread yourself within just one. This is a sure fire way to suck big time. Sometimes this one takes some trial and error. There are times when I may or may not want to punch a freshman in the face for not showing respect to the older girls.
Although we may act like we love you and that you are so so special, at the end of the day we want you to look up to us as we looked up to the seniors when we were freshmen.
You may not think that older girl is dangerous but in Greek land, these girls can get craaazzyyyy…. Not only will you fall out of the loop but you may never get back in. As soon as you get your bid take advantage to all of the activities to the fullest extent.Founded at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York on September 18,  it is the fourth Greek-letter organization founded for women, and the first "sorority" founded for women in the northeast.
Alpha Phi is a member of the National Panhellenic Conferencethe governing council of 26 women's fraternities. At the time of the founding there were only women attending Syracuse; ten of them eventually formed of Alpha Phi to found an organization "on the principles of the promotion of growth in character; unity of feeling, sisterly affection, and social communion among the members.
Alpha Phi considers itself a women's fraternity because its founding date predates the invention of the word "sorority". Alpha Phi's founding members were:  . Like many other women's fraternities, Alpha Phi recognizes multiple types of symbols, with the Ivy Leaf as their primary symbol. The fraternity's official colors are bordeaux and silver.
The colors were originally blue and gold; however, these colors were similar to those of the Sigma Chi fraternity so they were changed. Alpha Phi's public motto is "union hand in hand". According to Alexandra Robbinsit also has a "secret" motto, "A. Like other Greek life organizations, Alpha Phi has created a badge for its organization that they felt was meaningful, and as the fraternity states, "Alpha Phi was the first women's organization to use Greek letters as an emblem.
Originally there was no standard badge. Until when the current badge was adopted, each member [of Alpha Phi] went to the jeweler of her choice to have her pin designed. Alpha Phi fraternity participates in philanthropy via a separate arm, the Alpha Phi Foundation, founded in The fraternity officially adopted Cardiac Care as its philanthropic priority inwhich then became the Foundation's focus upon its founding in The Foundation supports programs and research that study heart disease in women — specifically its symptoms, its treatment and its prevention.
The foundation raises and awards funds and grants for programs in leadership and academics, towards women's heart health, for members with financial needs, and for heritage preservation and education about philanthropy. The fraternity considers the first Friday of February as Red Dress Pin Day and the month of February as Cardiac Care Month where individual Alpha Phi chapters are encouraged to develop a relationship with a local cardiac care project in their community as well as to promote awareness of women's heart disease.
Collegiate chapters of Alpha Phi host a philanthropy event known as The Red Dress Gala also called "Red Dress Ball" or "Aphiasco" by some chapterswhich includes a silent auction, guest speakers, and a full dinner for sisters, alumni, and family. Traditionally, the collegiate members wear red dresses to represent their support for Women's Heart Health.
This event raises funds for their Foundation and the Heart to Heart Grant.View Full Version : Best kept secret revealed! The meaning of Phi Alpha Send questions for Cecil Adams to: cecil straightdope. Your direct line to thousands of the smartest, hippest people on the planet, plus a few total dipsticks. Are there any SAE brothers or alumni on the board?
What Is the Meaning of "AOE" in Alpha Phi?
Anyone every get an SAE brother drunk enough to confess?? For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about: The fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon has a very well kept secret. Once one becomes a "brother", he is told the secret meaning to Phi Alpha. None of their pledges or neophytes know the meaning. A true brother would never ever tell what it means. But this is the SDMB. Collectively, we know everything. Therefore someone on this board knows the true meaning of Phi Alpha.
The hard part, I guess, would be getting you to tell me. None of your SAE bretheren will know who is behind your secret screen name. I guess this is a long shot, but I figure if I was ever going to find out, I would find out here!
So, what is the secret meaning to one of the best kept secrets in the world, Phi Alpha? My guess is that it really has no meaning. I think the big secret is that when you are finally sworn in as a brother they tell you, "Ok, the secret to Phi Alpha is it doesn't mean shit! But dont tell anyone! But this is strictly hearsay testimony provided by a GDI in hopes of starting a frat war. Phi Kappa Psi always cracked me up too And what is that?
I can't think of any bad words that start with "P" and "A". I can't tell you. I can tell you why John F. Kennedy was killed.
