courage to continue. So, yes, I realized I wasn t really participating in the organization, but, hey, look at my vita. I had four other organizations that were eating up a lot of my time. In two of those organizations, I held leadership positions. So, I . . . I . . . just decided to blow off Beta Alpha Psi after I thought that I had somehow become a member. Ann, do you have �� Before Dean McGrew could finish her question directed at Ann Herrick, Zane interrupted her. I mean, you could charge me with being a lousy member of Beta Alpha Psi but that doesn t involve dishonesty. When it was apparent that Zane was finished, McGrew again addressed Ann Herrick. Ann, do you have an attendance sheet for the orientation meeting Zane attended? No. We don t take attendance at the orientation meetings, Herrick replied. What about the career fairs? Do you take attendance at those? No, because we don t consider them to be official events. All accounting majors are invited to the career fairs. And what about the issue of Zane being on Beta Alpha Psi s email distribution list the past two years? McGrew continued quizzing Herrick.

What we do is develop a roster of everyone who is eligible to apply for membership in Beta Alpha Psi at the beginning of each fall semester. That roster becomes the email distribution list for potential pledges, Herrick explained. I did check that roster and Zane s name was on it the past two years. So, he is correct in that regard. He would have been notified in advance of every Beta Alpha Psi meeting since he became a junior. See, like I said, I just assumed for the past two years I was a member because I received those regular emails. The stress in Zane s voice was becoming more elevated with each passing minute. But you received an email at the beginning of each fall semester that explained in detail the requirements for membership in Beta Alpha Psi. Herrick s accusatory tone made Zane even more stressed. And if you attended the orientation meeting as a junior, you sat through a PowerPoint presentation that listed those requirements as well. When Zane failed to reply, McGrew prompted him. Well, Zane. How do you respond to what Professor Herrick just said? Zane lowered his head and stared at the floor for several moments. I don t know. I mean, I guess I m one of those students who doesn t pay a lot of attention to administrative details. Zane finally raised his head and made eye contact with McGrew. I m sure I received the emails Professor � � Herrick referred to, and I know I sat through the orientation session during the fall semester of my junior year. But I

probably didn t read . . . I mean, I m sure I didn t read the full text of the emails or pay attention during the orientation meeting. Given how busy I was over the past two years, I often took homework to work on during those types of meetings. Professor Goggans finally spoke for the first time. Zane, you said a few moments ago that you decided to blow off Beta Alpha Psi after I thought that I had somehow become a member. To me, that statement suggests you may have believed you were a member of Beta Alpha Psi but that you had been granted membership in the organization by mistake.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
