  6. 6. Section 3: Short EssaysPlease use the space provided to answer all of the following questions. Your responses are limited to thetext box that follows each question.1. What are your professional and personal goals?The system was broken. Eminent Supreme Archon Don Almy (Cornell 1897) knew it now more than ever.Membership had soared in the past few years and more and more local fraternities were petitioning to becomechapters of SAE, producing more work than could be handled. The Supreme Council was overwhelmed. Councilmembers were finding it increasingly difficult to find enough time to dedicate to their regular occupations, familyneeds and their office in the Fraternity. Almy also knew that it would be nearly impossible to find good men to jointhe Supreme Council. No one with the executive ability and leadership skills necessary was going to want to take avolunteer position like that. The Fraternity had become a victim of its own success. Instead of decreasedmembership, as fraternity officers had expected, the Great War had actually increased the number of initiations andnot a single chapter had closed. There had been 3,038 initiations since the last convention in 1916, nearly two anda half times as many initiations as were recorded between 1914-1916, the last reporting period. Now, on the eve ofthe 1919 national convention, the Fraternity was also about to report its largest-ever active membership with 83chapters and 1,830 active collegiate members. For the duration of the war, the War Department had imposedrestrictions on college fraternities that included potential closure, if it were determined necessary. Military trainingstations were being set up in colleges across the country and some of the fraternity’s chapters had to give up theirhouses for military use. In addition to the war, the worldwide Spanish influenza epidemic was taking its toll on thefraternity. Initially, in the spring of 1918 the flu hadn’t been that severe. But that fall and winter it reemerged withunexpected severity. At the end2.
