  16. 16. VII. Press Coverage
  17. 17. <ul><li>These fraternity brothers at UC Berkeley wear Greek letters with a Sanskrit design, have no plans to share a house and say they won't serve alcohol at any of their gatherings. Members of Alpha Epsilon Zeta, a new fraternity on campus, are a far cry from the slovenly, drunken frat boys of &quot;Animal House&quot; that for many is still the prevailing image of Greek life. Sundeep Chanana pledged two fraternities, but each time he backed out. He doesn't drink, and was one of the few Indo-American students going through the fall ritual known as &quot;rush.&quot; That led Chanana and a group of friends to form the first South Asian fraternity at UC Berkeley, one of the first of its kind in the nation. Their demeanor is pointedly professional – the 12 current members are all business or computer science majors. Founding members introduce themselves with corporate titles, like &quot;Marketing VP.&quot; In many ways, they treat the fraternity, which was recognized by the university in the spring of 2003, like a Silicon Valley start-up. AEZ appears to be the first Greek organization in the region that caters specifically to South Asians, students whose families are from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh. Most of the current members are Indo-American, but students of any ethnicity are welcome to join. AEZ abhors hazing rituals, but it plans to be rigorous when selecting new members. Potential pledges will be asked to write a personal essay about what they would contribute to the fraternity, and freshmen who rush AEZ have to turn over a copy of their high school transcript. Honors courses and GPAs of 3.4 and above are thought to be a baseline, but students who are taking exceptionally challenging courses might be cut some slack. &quot;We're looking for quality individuals,&quot; said Mohit Jain, 19, a sophomore who went to Mission San Jose High School in Fremont. &quot;Our idea of a brother isn't someone who stays up partying. It's someone who stays up until 4 a.m. working on a project.&quot; AEZ's founders think like Silicon Valley entrepreneurs during the region's heady start-up days. They want to expand and see AEZ chapters sprout up at other campuses, but they know they need to build a following at Cal first. Sonu Gill, 21, is the fraternity's vice president of Marketing. Next week, Gill will give a formal presentation to potential pledges. &quot;We're going to show them the PowerPoint presentation,&quot; said Gill, who graduated from Wilcox High School in Santa Clara. &quot;We're going to be dressed nice, all suited up. We want to make sure that people understand that joining AEZ is a commitment.&quot; </li></ul>San Jose Mercury News – 8/24/2003 Cal's South Asian fraternity offers new niche during rush Dana Hull Relevant Excerpts Only Press Coverage San Jose Mercury News
