Sorority Recruitment


Sydney Maltinsky-Wilson



Most commonly known as Syd, Sydney is a sophomore at Lehigh University. She lives in Drinker with many other athletes, including some of her fellow Field Hockey teammates. You can always find her with a smile on her face, even after a brutal practice. Her natural ability to make people laugh makes Syd a great friend and hallmate. Recently, Syd started leaving her huge speaker system in the girl’s bathroom – it has been a constant dance party in Drinker ever since. You can find Syd on campus either practicing Field Hockey or getting her study on in Lindy – don’t be afraid to say hi, she always offers a smile and a wave back!

Lehigh's COMM 30 Class: Helping Sandy Victims

Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast hard a few weeks ago, and many areas surrounding Lehigh University have been devastated by the storm's effects. The Lehigh population consists of many students coming from the New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania areas that were so badly hit by Sandy. Lehigh's campus itself was also affected, and classes were cancelled for an entire week. The Comm 30 class is doing what they can to help out, so we asked a student in the class and HC Lehigh writer Lizzie Gilbert a little more about the project.           What is Comm 30? Comm 30 is a course called Media and Society taught by Jeremy Littau. It is a requirement for both the journalism major and communications minor.   How many students are in the class? Are they all participating? 40 people are in the class however only 35 are participating in the project. The other 5 are choosing to take the final exam.   How often does the class meet? Our class meets twice a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:45-12   Can you tell us a little more about the class and what you do in it? We have 4 reflection papers throughout the semester, each pertaining to a book we read outside of class. Our first reflection paper involved us tracking our media usage for an entire week and reflecting on that.   Why did the class get involved with Hurricane Sandy? It was our professors idea to do this project. Instead of a final he wanted to find a way to highlight all that we've learned regarding different mediums and social networks. We are using our knowledge to spread the word and raise awareness.   Has the project been successful?
