Special Points of Interest The Beta Alpha Chapter received an astounding 3.29 overall GPA for the Spring 2015 semester, ranking us number 1 overall GPA out of all campus organizations, including the sororities and the All Men’s GPA of 2.98
The theme for the 107th Annual Best Ever St. Pat’s was “Pats on the High Seas”. Brother Joseph Walker worked diligently with the help of the chapter to earn our house another first place cudgel. The chapter placed 2nd overall, coming behind Beta Sigma Psi. We look forward to competing again in 2017, and will begin working on another first place cudgel in the coming months.
Along with the renovations, our house has received a new spacious mailbox, eliminating the need for our P.O. box. Please send any and all packages/mail directly to the house.
Due to high shipping and printing costs, this will be the last physical newsletter sent out from Beta Alpha. From now on, we will be sending out electronic newsletters via e-mail. . If your contact information has changed, please let the chapter know. Email our Historian, Corey Stefanic, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Words from the I Brothers, Onward, upward, higher higher has been our mo5o over the last year. The chapter is returning from one of the best semesters we have ever had. Our house achieved an outstanding 3.299 GPA, ranking number one on campus. We even beat the sororiEes, which has not been accomplished in many years. We are working diligently to conEnue our success this semester and striving for an even higher GPA. With our record-‐breaking grades, we have had an enormous amount of interest in rush. Our house was ﬁlled before July. We currently have 24 potenEal new members, with 4 of them pledging out of house. We cut oﬀ rush at that number but have acquired a list of around 35 people who are sEll interested. I can assure you that our house will stay a respectable size -‐ not much larger than our current number – and our brotherhood will remain as strong as ever. This is our second year in the house since its renovaEon last year. We have situated nicely and have done well in transiEon. If you have not had the the chance to stop by and see the renovaEon in person, we encourage you to do so. Homecoming will be on October 24th this year, and I hope to you there. see Fraternally, Cameron LaPresta I – President 636-‐208-‐0096 email@example.com
Philanthropy The members of the Beta Alpha chapter have continued to emphasize the importance of charity and service. While it is important to develop our chapter internally, it is also equally important to give back to the community. As a gentleman, we must not only better ourselves, but better those around us. This led us to strive for over 2000 man hours of service this past summer and spring semester, which equates to approximately 40 hours per member. Our chapter continues to diligently make larger impacts on the Rolla Community. We have continued to clean our highway through the "Adopt a Highway" program, donate blood for "Operation Crimson Gift," and donate time to the Community Partnership, a local charity to help underprivileged families. In addition, Beta Alpha will host a food drive, benefiting a local food bank here in town. As Kappa Alpha gentlemen, we strive for excellence in all things, especially our philanthropy. Respectfully, Andrew Dunn Philanthropy Chairman firstname.lastname@example.org
MDA The Beta Alpha Chapter has had a great year in supporting our national philanthropy, the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This year marked the Beta Alpha Chapterâ€™s 40th anniversary in support for MDA, and in order to make sure this was a special year, our chapter ended up raising a little over $1,700 through multiple fundraisers, competitions, and sales. In addition to the money that we have raised thus far, our drive does not end there. We still have a few more events planned that include fundraisers held with local businesses, a raffle or an auction held during our homecoming, t-shirt sales or possibly a tournament between other Greek organizations on campus. We have had quite the eventful year thus far and we can only hope to be successful in the events still to come. Regards, Brett Bolon MDA Chairman email@example.com
