Strengthening the Brotherhood
Gamma Theta Determined to Make a Difference

The men of Gamma Theta had a successful start to the fall semester by welcoming 39 new brothers, 16 of which are on academic scholarship. Our recruitment chairmen, TJ Mulgrue ’14, Taylor Richards ’14, and Jake Richardson ’16, dedicated their time during the summer months to focus on recruiting the strongest pledge class on campus. We are thrilled to call the 2017 pledge class our brothers.

Focused on True Merit
This semester, our main focus is to assist our freshman brothers by guiding them toward success through our new membership education program. It is our goal to help mold these new brothers by teaching them the importance of True Merit. We hope through these teachings to produce excellent candidates for potential leadership opportunities, such as Order of Omega, Mortar Board, and Innocent’s Society. The chapter aims to continue being leaders among leaders at UNL and in all future endeavors. With high expectations, we are excited to see what our newest members can accomplish during their time with Gamma Theta.


Philanthropic Endeavors
In September, the chapter volunteered at Robinette Farms, where members donated more than 100 hours of service picking the toxic weed called hemp dogbane so cows may safely graze. We plan to partner with Robinette Farms for future service projects and events. Additionally, we hosted our signature event, Tau Tacos for Texas, which raised $5,000 for the American Red Cross’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Excited for Chapter and University Events
With the semester in full swing, the chapter plans on utilizing UNL’s challenge course as a leadership development opportunity for brothers. We are also hosting a workshop at the Healthy Husker’s event to raise awareness on the harmful effects of alcohol. Our chapter advisor, Kyle Bruss ’97, is hosting a resume workshop for members to learn resume building tips. Throughout the semester, we will host Laurie Bellows, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, and other campus leaders at our beautiful new home during Monday night dinners.


Thankful for Alumni Support
We thank the alumni for their time and donations throughout the duration of the renovation. As a firsthand witness, I know that your investment in our future has and will continue to pay off. We also thank the Board of Trustees for your continued support and are well deserving of the 2017 Upper Alpha Award. We strive to uphold Alpha Tau Omega’s dedication to excellence and preserve the great name of Gamma Theta. If you weren’t able to attend the house dedication ceremony during Homecoming weekend, we encourage you to stop by whenever you’re in the Lincoln area to see the completed renovation and meet the young men following in your footsteps.

"Leadership experiences in the chapter helped me grow as a young man. Being surrounded by highly motivated guys taught me time management and a multitude of other skills. It fostered a good work ethic and helped me later in life during my residency."
