SYMPOSIUM: A symposium, in relation to program presentation, may be a series of articles, or a collection of opinions on one subject, presented by two or more persons using the lecture method, speaking on different phases of one subject. A symposium on rushing could have speakers as follows:

1st Speaker: How to prepare all members of a chapter for rushing.

2nd Speaker: Kinds of rushing activities that capture rushee's interest and gives a clear understanding of Beta Sigma Phi's ideals and purposes.

3rd Speaker: How to extend an invitation to membership and explain the cost of Beta Sigma Phi so rushee realizes she is being honored and will receive many advantages for small cost.


PANEL DISCUSSION:A panel discussion, steered by a Moderator, is a conversational type of discussion, presented by a group of panelists. A good Moderator steers the discussion toward the accomplishment of its goal. She may ask each panelist questions or may direct a question to one panelist who in turn discusses it with some or all panelists before another question is asked.
