INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM
As a child, Siddhartha the Buddha was troubled by some of the same thoughts that children today have. They wonder about birth and death. They wonder why they get sick and why grandfather died. They wonder why their wishes do not come true. Children also wonder about happiness and the beauty in nature.
Because the Buddha knew what was in the hearts of children and human kind, he taught everyone how to live a happy and peaceful life. Buddhism is not learning about strange beliefs from faraway lands. It is about looking at and thinking about our own lives. It shows us how to understand ourselves and how to cope with our daily problems.

BASIC TEACHINGS OF THE BUDDHA
THE THREE UNIVERSAL TRUTHS
One day, the Buddha sat down in the shade of a tree and noticed how beautiful the countryside was. Flowers were blooming and trees were putting on bright new leaves, but among all this beauty, he saw much unhappiness. A farmer beat his ox in the field. A bird pecked at an earthworm, and then an eagle swooped down on the bird. Deeply troubled, he asked, "Why does the farmer beat his ox? Why must one creature eat another to live?"
During his enlightenment, the Buddha found the answer to these questions. He discovered three great truths. He explained these truths in a simple way so that everyone could understand them.
1. Nothing is lost in the universe
The first truth is that nothing is lost in the universe. Matter turns into energy, energy turns into matter. A dead leaf turns into soil. A seed sprouts and becomes a new plant. Old solar systems disintegrate and turn into cosmic rays. We are born of our parents, our…...

Effect of a Student Who Are Involved in Fraternities

...How Fraternities and Sororities Impact Students (Or Do They?) Drinking, academics, and social behavior under the microscope Published on September 1, 2011 by Alan Reifman, Ph.D. in On the Campus Right around now is the start of the academic year at American universities. Among the traditional activities accompanying the start of school is fraternity/sorority rush, in which students who wish to join a Greek-letter organization attend functions to learn about and select from the different houses and the fraternities and sororities decide which students they would like to invite to become members. Exact figures for the number of college students nationally involved in these organizations are hard to pin down. However, from perusing several documents on the Internet, I would estimate that roughly 1 million current students belong to fraternities and sororities, and that when alumni are counted in the total, the number may be as high as 9 million (examples of the statistics one can find are availablehere and here). To let readers know where I'm coming from, I was never a member of a fraternity, but family members of mine have been in fraternities and sororities. From talking to them and numerous students of mine who have been in Greek-letter organizations, I feel I have at least a decent store of knowledge about them. A natural question for someone such as myself, who studies young-adult development and has a background in social psychology, is what impact does participation...

A Research Study on the Reasons Why Students Join Fraternity

...A RESEARCH STUDY ON THE REASONS WHY STUDENTS JOIN FRATERNITY CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION: A fraternity (Latin frater : "brother") is a brotherhood, though the term usually connotes a distinct or formal organization. The only true distinction between a fraternity and any other form of social organization is the implication that the members freely associate as equals for a mutually beneficial purpose, rather than because of a religious, governmental, commercial, or familial bond, although there are fraternities dedicated to each of these topics.[1] In many instances fraternities are limited to male membership such as the Dutch 'Alpinisten Vereniging Gelderland Midden' but this is not always the case, and there are mixed male and female, and even wholly female, fraternities. For example, for general fraternities: theGrande Loge Mixte de France, the Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons, the Grande Loge Féminine de France, the various Orders of Odd Fellows, and the Order of the Eastern Star. Fraternities can be organized for many purposes, including university education, work skills, ethics, ethnicity, religion, politics, charity, chivalry, other standards of personal conduct, asceticism, service, performing arts, family command of territory, and even crime. There is almost always an explicit goal of mutual support, and while there have been fraternal orders for the well-off there have also been many fraternities for those in the lower ranks of society, especially for......

Effects of Fraternity Involvement on the Social Behavior of the Selected Students in Sta. Cruz Laguna

...Chapter 1 The Problem and its Background Introduction Fraternity is one of the most influential groups that students may encounter during his/her college days. When we hear fraternity, commonly it belongs to men but as the years passed, even women are also being engaged with fraternities or the so called sorority. As an individual, we have this feeling that we need to belong. It is very essential for man to find fulfillment and to have a feeling of acceptance simply because man by nature is a social being. Adolescents were the ones who are always involve in fraternities. Adolescents, as said by many psychologists or theorists, it is the critical stage of life. It is accompanied by many changes that bring crisis and difficulties, and these changes include physical, mental, emotional and social. Physical changes were very visible and very observable thing that takes place during adolescence. But the social aspect of adolescents also changes. It is the time when an individual searches and identifies himself through socialization. The prior environment of every individual is the family. But as we continue to grow, it broadens extending to friends and peers in school. Adolescents begin to search for new friends and start to form or join any group that makes them think of joining one of these. Adjustment in the society is one of the most difficult aspects and includes the members of the opposite sex and adult outside family members and also the school environment.......

Effects of Fraternities

...have grown up around these gangs there whole life and now that they are old enough to join, the gang can provide them with the some sort of support they need during hard times. Compare gangs and services/ fraternal organizations in terms of benefits and recruitments strategies. There many similarities that can be drawn between gangs and fraternal organizations. Both provide some central location where activities can take place parties, dance, meeting, etc. For gangs it is club house, for fraternal organization it is there house on the college campus. Both also provide the sense of belonging and status. As one can tell there are many different reasons why young man and woman would be compelled to join a gang, and even different ways of joining a gang can happen. There is a desire by everyone in the country to be successful. Sometimes achieving that goal is not easily obtainable through legal actions. Some people are driven to gangs and illegal activities because they feel there are no options to make things work. This is why Merton’s stain theory, and the theory of deviant subcultures apply in thee circumstance of gangs....

CHAPTER 2 Review of related literature and studies - This chapter presents “Students do not believe that their efforts will improve their performance.” If students do not believe that their efforts are likely to improve their performance, they will not be motivated to work hard. Motivation can be affected, for instance, if a course that has a reputation for being inordinately difficult. Related study - We can all agree that meaningful schoolwork promotes students' learning of academic content. But why stop there? I believe that meaningful work can also teach students to love challenges, to enjoy effort, to be resilient, and to......

Student Benefits in Joining a Business Club

...dynamic student clubs and organizations” (Pacific Lutheran University, 2013). This sounds great for incoming business students, until they walk into a Human Resource club meeting with only seven members attending. According to the undergraduate program coordinator, only 36% of the 210 declared business majors attend business clubs (J. Reed, personal communication, December 2, 2013).  Out of the four clubs, only the club for marketing students have a good turnout. The problem comes from the lack of motivation for students to attend. Their excuses range from needing to focus on school work to not being able to attend meetings late at night. It could even be the belief that the clubs at PLU are a waste of time to participate in. However, no matter how big the reasoning is to avoid participating in clubs, it cannot outweigh the benefits that joining a club provides to college students. Students who are involved in business clubs do better personally, academically, and professionally than students who do not get involved. The college experience isn’t from sitting in the classroom all day listening to lectures. "The college experience is about getting involved. No other time in our lives are we saturated with so many diverse ideas, perspectives, lifestyles, and goals” (University, 2013). Students who participate in business clubs develop and grow as individuals, increase their GPA average, and learn more about their concentrating fields. Business clubs help students develop......

Fraternity

...7 Disadvantages of Joining a Fraternity The benefits of joining a fraternity or sorority are many, and it's important to realize that Greek life in college has a lot of impressive things to offer. It's also important, however, to realize that there might be some challenges. So just what do you need to be aware of before officially pledging? 1. You might be stereotyped by your fellow students. Even if you had a great impression of fraternities and sororities before you came to college -- and an even better one once you learned about all the great initiatives your school's Greek organizations do -- not all students share the same perception. Ignorant or well-informed, your fellow students might stereotype you once they know you belong to a certain Greek house. And while there might not be much you can do about that, it's important to at least keep in mind. 2. You might be stereotyped by faculty.You might be having an amazing, life-changing experience as a member of your fraternity or sorority. But your professors -- who were, after all, college students themselves once -- might not have had as great of an experience during their own undergraduate years. Or they could have had problems in the past with students from your particular organization. While you are your own person and should be judged accordingly, just be aware of the perceptions some faculty members might have about how you spend your time outside of class. 3. You might be stereotyped by future employers. While......

Fraternities and Its Effects

...of terms. Background of the Study Fraternities exist now a day, these days fraternities are common among college students.. The word fraternities came from the Latin word, frater and soror, meaning ‘’brother’’ and ‘’sister ‘’respectively. From the beginning, the norms and values of fraternities were independent of the college environment. Since the founding of Kappa Alpha at Union College (in Schenectady, New York) in 1825 as the oldest secret brotherhood of a social nature, fraternities developed with different personalities and histories on each campus. The trappings of an idealized ancient Greece were added to those of Freemasonry to create secret societies dedicated to bringing together young men who were seeking conviviality. Members historically met weekly in a student dormitory room or rented facility for social and intellectual fellowship. To fight the monotony of mid-nineteenth-century colleges, fraternities institutionalized various escapes of a social nature. In our time many of the students who study at the university are involved in fraternities and became a big problem with the university because many of the students participating here have neglected their studies and the others were lost due to hazing.And most of the students involved in fraternities and unaware of their parents. Based on the researchers’ observations here in DCSP, many students are involved in fraternities. Usually, the first year students are taking a Bachelor of Science......

They were first established to encourage activities outside of the classroom. There are exciting volunteer opportunities and social outlets available in joining these organizations. Not everyone have enough time once someone enters in. In Greece, fans of sororities and fraternities argue that their system gives students leadership opportunities and lasting friendships.

Negative Effects of Fraternity

...membership in fraternities and sororities relates to the prevalence and patterns of substance use in a national sample of full-time US college students. Design Nationally representative probability samples of US high school seniors (modal age 18 years) were followed longitudinally across two follow-up waves during college (modal ages 19/20 and 21/22). Setting Data were collected via self-administered questionnaires from US high school seniors and college students. Participants The longitudinal sample consisted of 10 cohorts (senior years of 1988–97) made up of 5883 full-time undergraduate students, of whom 58% were women and 17% were active members of fraternities or sororities. Findings Active members of fraternities and sororities had higher levels of heavy episodic drinking, annual marijuana use and current cigarette smoking than non-members at all three waves. Although members of fraternities reported higher levels than non-members of annual illicit drug use other than marijuana, no such differences existed between sorority members and nonmembers. Heavy episodic drinking and annual marijuana use increased significantly with age among members of fraternities or sororities relative to non-members, but there were no such differential changes for current cigarette use or annual illicit drug use other than marijuana. Conclusions The present study provides strong evidence that higher rates of substance use among US college students who join fraternities and......
