They were officially inducted in Phi Theta Kappa, which has a history of success in developing leaders for the world. The honor club, Phi Theta Kappa, is one of the most influential clubs on UVSC campus. It boasts a mein'oership of 2,500 students at UVSC and over a million members worldwide. Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is great for resumes. Greg Tillack, the president of the UVSC Phi Theta Kappa chapter remarked, "The more involved you become in Phi Theta Kappa, the more it helps your academic resume." Phi Theta Kappa is also good when applying for scholarships. There are $32 million worth of transfer scholarships from 530 different organizations available exclusively for Phi Theta Kappa members. Right now there is a lecture series that high-school students may participate in and then compete for a scholarship to UVSC. The Phi Theta Kappa organization is keen on getting students where they would like to go in life. One of the cornerstones for the strength of Phi Theta Kappa is leadership opportunities and leadership training. On March 12, the elections for the new president and vice presidents will be held. Such positions allow students the opportunity to train to be leaders of the future. Such training takes place in international and regional conventions. This year the Phi Theta Kappa president and one other vice president will be sent to the International Phi Theta Kappa convention in Nashville, Tennessee. They will stay at the Grand Ole Oprey, a legendary hotel with a river that runs right through the lobby. At the convention, the UVSC chapter delegates will participate in leadership training, varied workshops, and have a guest speaker of achievement address the convention. For the regional training convention, members of Phi Theta Kappa went to Oregon. The group was broken up into different culture families and given the tasks of choosing rules and a new language for their culture families. Amanda Zahart, a vice president of the UVSC Phi Theta Kappa chapter said of the experience, "We took chances by going into other communities and seeing things from their "Phi Theta Kappa" continued on pg. 3 Net Spot THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NeyPoTrtks Go to www.foxnews.com to find out all the latest from die middle east.

U.S. Wants DNA from Bin Ladin Family By John J. Lumpkin Ap Writer The U.S. government is seeking samples of DNA from Osama bin Laden's family to determine if human remains found in Afghanistan belong to the terrorist leader, government sources said Wednesday. Human remains have been collected from a number of U.S. airstrike sites, including the site of a Feb. 4 CIA Predator missile strike on a meeting of suspected al-Qaida leaders, the sources said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. U.S. officials have been seeking the DNA samples from bin Laden's family for months, but recently stepped up the effort following the Predator strike, one source said. The wealthy bin Laden family of Saudi Arabia has disowned the terrorist leader. Tim Metz, a family spokesman in New York, said he was unaware of the U.S. government's making any formal request to family members for samples. But he suggested the samples could be obtained from hospitals or other sources. Metz said bin Laden has about 50 siblings whose DNA could be used. The Feb. 4 Predator missile strike killed three people suspected by United States of being senior bin Laden operatives, but some Afghans say the strike killed innocents, not terrorists. U.S. officials say the heavy security and deferential treatment given a central figure suggest it may have been an al-Qaida leadership meeting.But the DNA collection effort isn't simply to determine who died in the Predator strike; other remains found after U.S. bombing in Afghanistan have yet to be identified as well, sources said. Defense officials have said for months that they are unsure if bin Laden is dead or alive. In the last month, U.S. intelligence obtained faint signs that he was alive and somewhere in the Pakistani-Afghan border region where he's thought to have been since leaving Tora Bora late last year, a U.S. official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
