December 2018 Newsletter

Happy Holidays from the House!

Message from the Sage:


Having been recently elected Sage, I want to express my excitement about the upcoming year both for our undergraduate brothers and for our alumni. We’ve already had a great start to the academic year with events like our third annual “Hoos Standing Up” Ace Project to raise awareness about bystander intervention and survivor resources for instances of sexual assault and we have a great slate of activities planned for the upcoming year.

In terms of the upcoming spring, one of the events I’m most excited for this year is our celebration of our chapter’s 60th Anniversary the weekend of Saturday April 6th 2019. There will be a full weekend of events starting with a reception on Friday April 5th and culminating in a banquet on Saturday night. It will be a great opportunity to reunite with old friends and meet both alumni and current brothers. We hope to see you there!

Please feel free to contact me at
