THE OF KAPPA SIGMA The Official Newsletter of the Theta Xi Fraternity – Kappa Sigma Chapter, Kettering University Spring 2010
A Word from the President Brothers, As new chapter president, I am excited for what the futures holds. Currently, we have 30 members, as well as two associates, living in the house and 28 brothers will be returning for summer term. We are all looking forward to rush and hope to get another large associate member class. Based on the past, as well as what we have learned from several national conventions, I think we should be able to get at least ten more associates. Over this current term, the associate member project was to replace all of the missing molding, fix all of the dining room tables, and to rewire the entertainment systems in Spyke’s and the Rec. room. On top of this, all of the brothers patched and painted all of the walls throughout the house. Everything is looking great now and I think that this will even help us with rush next term.
done so far. Ever since the new house has been a possibility, I have noticed a remarkable increase in moral. Everybody is excited and willing to do more for the house. YITB, Don Yochim, KΣ 1298 President
Graduation Announcements A-section has given alumni status to one brother during winter term:
The transition from WAG to GPA has been rough, but I think we have managed it well. We have been pushing towards raising our grades, and I am happy to say that as a house we have made substantial improvement since last term, despite the change. I can say with confidence that we will continue to raise our grades this term over the next year. There has been major progress towards the new house thanks to our active Alumni. I would just like to thank them all for everything they have
Congratulations Peter! Your dedication to the house is appreciated, and you will be missed.
A Word from the Alumni President
During the Winter Term, 2010, A-Section initiated six new members into the Fraternity. These new members have tried to do their best in the house. If you haven’t gotten a chance to hear about them they are:
I'd like to begin by commending the Undergraduates. They are truly impressing me with their dedication to ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Kappa Sigma Chapter of Theta Xi. The Undergraduate grades are improving, they're leaving the House better than they found Her, they are being true brothers to one another, and they attack challenges as they arise rather than kicking them down the road. I am proud of them of their accomplishments collectively and individually. The Alumni BOD are hosting a couple events in the coming months. We are having a Founder's Day Steak Dinner on Thursday, April 29, 6pm, at the House. After dinner will be a Q&A on the current functional status of our House and the development of the plans to build a new House. Cost is $20 for all Alumni and guests. Reservations must be made with me no later than Thursday, April 22nd (contact info below). Hopefully, all of our Advisors will also be able to attend. On June 5th we will be tee-ing it up for our 3rd Annual Alumni & Guest Golf Outing. Cost is $100 per man. Funds raised will purchase a really sweet outdoor grille and a new freezer. So, get your four-somes together and contact Brother Trevor Miles by May 20th at email@example.com , 248-330-4573. I hope to see all of you soon!
