High Pi

Meet our new High Pi and what he Alumni,

can bring to Zeta Epsilon

It has always been my great pleasure updating you all in what Zeta Epsilon has been up to. This semester we are gearing up to have an amazing semester with many things in the works such as: Chapter Meetings, more Iota Events, Associate Membership Ceremony, Poker Nights, Chillin’ with the Rho, Founders day Softball and BBQ, Philanthropies, Watermelon Bash, Brotherhood Retreat, and of course the biggest event of the Spring, our White Rose Formal. But as my last semester as an undergraduate my main focus is to get more alumni activity and set the Alumni Association which many of you have shown great interest in. Lets get ready for an awesome semester!

During his time in Lambda Chi Alpha he has held the position of the High Beta and a position as a member in the Executive committee. Brother Acuña has contributed much to this chapter during his active years and is preparing himself for the future with interviews that are coming up for him, “ I think Lambda Chi Alpha has prepared me to become a well equipped member of society, in which I know I will be able to give back not just to the community but to the chapter as well” – Neyri Acuña. Joining him in the Alumni circle is none other than his little brother Edward O’hara Zeta Epsilon 780. Brother O’hara earned his degree in Business Administration and Finance and graduated Cum Laude.

White Rose Formal The time is near and we are excited to announce our White Rose Formal date. The White Rose Formal will be held at the Wyndham Airport Hotel on May 5, 2011. Here we get to come together for the brotherhood and bask in the successes of the previous year, to meet Alumni that come from all over and tell us their stories from their days in Lambda Chi Alpha and reinforce the great bond of our brotherhood. This formal is being prepared by Brother Adam Setra (asetra@miners.utep.edu) and he can be reached by email (just click on his name) if you have any questions regarding this event. The price for an Alumni and his date will be $100.00 (includes two dinners) and tickets will be going on sale soon. If you have a question, comments or concern, as stated above you can contact Brother Setra or the High Rho.

Also Brother Setra is looking for a keynote speaker, so if you would like to take part in that please contact the High Rho to submit a brief statement on what you would like to present.
