Gamma Theta Strives for Excellence
Members were excited to move back in this spring and be a fully functioning chapter once again after renovations were completed during winter break. We are all impressed with the development of the renovated house and are excited to use it not only as our home, but also as a recruitment tool as we begin to look for the next pledge class. Along with moving in, we were welcomed with our new passionate house director, Joshua Keller. Josh has already begun to work with the executive team on new ways to approach recruitment and ensure we have an outstanding class come fall.
Tau Tacos Raises More Than $3,000
The spring semester began with a focus on improving philanthropically with our new event, Tau Tacos. It was a huge success, allowing our chapter to start off 2017 with a strong presence and set the bar high for upcoming philanthropic events held in the Greek community. We are proud to say that we raised more than $3,000 for Autism Speaks. After the chapter volunteered at a holiday ball for individuals who have autism spectrum disorder last December, we unanimously decided to support Autism Speaks throughout spring of 2017. We take pride in this partnership, and we are excited to be involved with this inspiring organization.
Staying Busy This Spring
This semester, we utilized UNL’s challenge course as a leadership development workshop, hosted the Healthy Husker’s to do an alcohol awareness workshop, and had Dad’s Day for the Nebraska versus Creighton baseball game. We also look forward to more brotherhood and alumni events this year. It’s always a pleasure to gather with so many of our loyal alumni.
High Expectations In Place
Looking forward, our central focus as a chapter is to improve scholastically and recruit a strong pledge class in the fall. Additionally, it is our goal to help mold the freshman into good applicants for future Mortar Board and Innocent’s Society members so that ATW can be the leader on campus once again. With these high expectations in place, we are excited to see what we can accomplish. I would like to thank all of our alumni and the board of trustees who have continued to support us and work hard to preserve Gamma Theta Chapter.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or stop by the chapter house if you ever find yourself in Lincoln. We would love to show you around our new home!
