Welcome our New Members

After receiving training in rush improvement from Nationals, the active chapter went all-out to increase membership, and succeeded in bringing in 6 new members.

We are very proud of our new brothers! Two are Eagle Scouts, and Sam Gilfillan, (top photo, front left) recently single-handedly raised an insane $2,350.01 for Dance marathon! His efforts went far above and beyond! To stay abreast of other events, and to view more biographical info on the actives, please follow the chapter on Facebook. This fall we will have seven brothers living at the houses.
