Maybe we will see one of our fellow collegiates on Broadway, on TV, or in a movie someday! For the mean time, Caleb Bressler is practicing his singing and acting skills as a member of ACMO. Graduating from Millersville University in December, Caleb is a Broadcasting major with bold goals. Her Campus Millersville's interview with Caleb reveals the skinny on ACMO and the best advice for aspiring actors at MU.
What is ACMO?
ACMO is an acronym for the "All Campus Musical Organization." Our forte is generally musical theatre, but we've had some other genres being mixed in as well. We have different kinds of concerts and shows that we do in the Fall and Spring semester. For instance, we usually have a Broadway cabaret in the fall. In the spring, we have a musical; this year it's "Legally Blonde."
Why should people join ACMO?
If people enjoy singing and/or Broadway, then they have a chance to actually get on stage and sing. If someone likes the more backstage aspects of theatre, then there is the possibility they could do stage managing, set designing and directing as well.
How do people join ACMO?
First, simply show up to a meeting. To officially join, you pay the ACMO dues, and that's it. It's really simple. And even if you just want to sit in on meetings for a while before paying the dues and "officially" joining, that's more than fine too.
What is your position in ACMO and what duties does it include?
I'm just a regular member, so I don't have an actual position. We do have a board, though, which includes the president, secretary, treasurer, and other positions. They, of course, are responsible for organizing and doing all of the the other things that make the club run. As for duties, occasionally all members of the club are commissioned to hang up posters for our shows. And, of course, if you are in a show you need to show up for rehearsals.

There's love in the air. Valentine's Day is just one day away and everyone's excited to surprise their sweetheart.This year, we will send each other over 141 million Valentine's Day cards (History.com)! But do you ever wonder how this day deticated to love came to be?
According to History.com, the exact reason for the celebration of Valentine's Day is not known. They speculate, however, that its roots could have started within two different stories.
In third century Rome there lived a priest named Valentine. The current emporer, Claudius II believed that single men were better soldiers than those who were married and thus banned marriage for young men. Valentine viewed this new law as injust and continued to perform marriage ceremonies for young men regardless. For his defiance, Claudius ordered Valentine to death.
Another story suggests that Valentine was imprisoned to death for helping other Christians escape from harsh Roman jails. During his imprisonment, Valentine fell in love with the prison keeper's daughter, who often visited him. Before he died, Valentine apparently wrote her a note and signed it, "From your Valentine."
Valentine's Day could be celebrated in memory of Valentine's death or, History.com also contends that the holiday could exist due to the Church's efforts to "Christianize" the pagan festival of Lupercalia (February 15) with a St. Valentine's feast. Lupercalia was then "outlawed" by Pope Gelasius during the fifth century. He declared February 14th to be Valentine's Day.
Soon after, many in France and England believed that this should be a time of love because this was the time birds began their mating season. During the middle ages, Valentine's greetings grew popular around Valentine's Day and the first handwritten Valentine appeared in 1415. Charles, Duke of Orleans, wrote this poem to his wife who was imprisoned in the Tower of London.
As women we tend to daydream a lot about what we want for Valentine's Day and little about what our guys want for Valentine's Day. With the 14th just one week away, here's a list of potential gift ideas he'll love! Hopefully, these can spark thoughts of creativity so you can surprise him this year.Video Games Gift Card to his favorite restaurant or bar Sports Apparel Bake him cookies or cupcakes Print out your favorite photos together and make a photo album or scrapbook; or even frame a photo Gift basket full of his favorite snacks Movies TV Show Box Set Make him a special dinner Boxers Pajama Bottoms Cozy Knit Beanie Cell phone cover Laptop sleeve Make him a Build-A-Bear Beverage Koozie Cologne Headphones or Earbuds iTunes Gift Card Cozy socks or slippers A new wallet Tickets to his favorite sports team, music group, or to a movie he wants to see Gift Card to his favorite clothing store T-shirt from his favorite clothing store Adult Onesie MP3 Speakers Watch Body Pillow Fleece Throw Blanket Order a poster of his favorite movie and frame it for him

Have you ever thought about joining a sorority, but wasn't sure of what it's all about? To give you the inside scoop, Her Campus Millersville interviewed model sorority siter, Leah Fauth.
A graduating Senior and Business Administration and Management major, Leah has been a member of Alpha Sigma Tau, Beta lota Chapter for the past two years. As the current Ritual Chair for Alpha Sigma Tau, she shares with us the real reasons why college women should join a sorority and gives us a briefing on the Beta lota chapter.
1.) Why do you love being a part of this sorority?
I love the feeling of family and sisterhood we have in our sorority. I know that no matter what is going on I can always count on my sisters being there for me and supporting me. I know that my sisters will be some of my best friends not just while were in college but far beyond that. You truly build lifelong friendships joining a sorority. I also love meeting sisters from around the United States. Being in a national sorority like Alpha Sigma Tau means there are chapters all over in thousands of colleges. Our annual conventions are a great time to meet new sisters and to share great experiences being apart of Alpha Sigma Tau.
2.) What are your personal goals in regards to your involvement with this sorority?
I wanted to gain a sense of leadership inside and outside the sorority. I also wanted to get more involved on campus and in the community and really give back to our community as a whole. And I wanted to show everyone that sororities do more on campus than party.
3.) What are your favorite sorority activities, fundraisers, or events?
Want to have fun for a good cause? Get your family and friends together for the 31st Annual Schreiber Pediatric Volleyball Bash! This year, the event will be held at the Millersville University Student Memorial Center Marauder Courts on Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.It's $25 per person to play and all donations directly support children with special needs in Lancaster County like this little girl, Ashlyn. 12-year-old Ashlyn has Down Syndrom and is just one of the thousands of children who will benefit from the Volleyball Bash donations.

Register your team today at http://www.schreiberpediatric.org/volleyball and complete the online registration form or call Morgan Kister at 717-393-0425 ext. 106.
Welcome back to Millersville! While we all needed that extra long break this winter, it's great to reconnect with our pals and to cross off more dates on the college calendar. The first week of the semester is always easy, but every college student knows how that week of syllabus explanations and no homework goes by too quickly. By the time week two arrives, we have group assignments and paper deadlines! Juggling school, homework, internships, jobs, sports, clubs, activities, and social lives can be overwhelming and can seem unmanageable.
Here are some tips for eliminating stress this spring semester:
1) Make a To-Do List
This may seem pointless as to-do lists don't erase a full schedule, but it is a simple, sure fire way to organize your life. Before going to bed each night, jot down (in order) each task that must be done the next day (including homework). Buy a magnetic stack of list paper and keep it on the refrigerator or keep the list on your desk. Be sure to cross each task off as you finish them. You'll feel a sense of relief and accomplishment!
2) Do the Things You Love
It might seem difficult to squeaze in time with your friends, to watch your favorite show, or to do hobbies when you have more pressing things on your mind. Add fun activities to your to-do list and time will allow for them. Plus, it's great to take your mind off bothersome tasks for a while. You'll feel better knowing you don't have to sacrifice all your precious social time.
