Homecoming Draws Record Numbers

EA JOURNAL A PUBLICATION OF

The Epsilon Alpha Alumni Chapter, in partnership with the undergraduates, hosted its second annual Homecoming Celebration over the weekend of October 26-27, 2007. While the weekend had many scheduled events, the hallmark event was again the pig pickin’ in the Harper Center parking lot during tailgating. One hundred percent of the active brotherhood, including ten associates (now brothers) and 160 alumni had the chance to have great food and reconnect with old friends. For the second consecutive year, alumnus Cory Wilkinson ’01, his uncle and a friend prepared the food. We owe a debt of gratitude to these men. Their presence and contributions added to the weekend’s success. Following the tailgating, alumni and students packed Rhodes Stadium to celebrate Pi Kappa Phi’s participation in the Homecoming Week activities. The undergraduate chapter placed 3rd in the overall Homecoming competition. Andrew Wilen ‘05 represented the chapter as its King nominee and placed as first runner-up and the chapter sweetheart Kim Glazer was crowned as Homecoming Queen.

Young Alumni Council

Christian Wiggins ‘01 presents to Council. This past fall, Elon took a big step forward in young alumni relations by creating a Young Alumni Council. Elon’s new Young Alumni Council seeks to strengthen connections between young alumni and the university. The council advises the Office of Alumni Relations and the university on programming and communication with young alums and current students. Council members are responsible for planning young alumni activities at Homecoming and with local chapters, as well as programming for seniors, young alumni giving, and alumni career and financial education. Lindsay Hege, assistant director of alumni relations for young alumni, who advises the Young Alumni Council, met with the Epsilon Alpha Alumni Chapter Board of Directors and other members during Homecoming weekend. Hege said, “Elon has established a commitment to young alumni through the creation of the new young alumni council and through the creation of my (her) position. Both are resources for our young alumni and I hope that we can work together to get more young alumni back to the University.” Of the 34 members on the Council five are Pi Kappa Phi alumni. Patrick Gallagher ’01, Christian Wiggins ’01, James Lewis ’01, Darris Means ’02 and Bob Koons ’03 all serve as At-Large members on the Council. Additionally, chapter sweetheart from 2001-2002, Caroline Sage, is the Council Vice President. Members travel to campus twice a year to take part in meetings. Additionally, they all serve on one committee that holds conference calls monthly. Having strong representation on a key alumni council ensures that Pi Kappa Phi and Elon are synergistic in programming and communication for all Pi Kappa Phi alumni.
