As the semester came to an end, the Theta-Xi chapter of Kappa Sigma held elections for minor offices. This was a great way to integrate new brothers into our beloved fraternity, while also giving them special tasks for the betterment of our chapter.
With every end to a semester, final exams are the gatekeeper to a long and needed break. Brothers rigorously applied themselves to their studies, to capitalize on their hard work throughout the semester. The Chapter Room was seemingly always full of brothers helping one another achieve academic success. However, the brothers were able to take a break from pounding textbooks and final projects to spread Christmas cheer with the annual Secret Santa gift exchange. Stories, laughs and gifts were all shared as the chapter came together for an unforgettable night.
We capped off our rush events with a formal Bid Day so all brothers in attendance could meet potential pledges and vice versa. We have high hopes for our next pledge class, as we expect a number north of twenty pledges for the spring semester!
The Chapter is proud have raised $700 throughout the semester which will be donated to support the Burn the Mortgage campaign. This totals our contributions towards the campaign to $1000. The support our alumni give us often goes without much gratitude from the Chapter. We hoped to show this gratitude through working hard raising funds to support the BTM campaign, a campaign that the alumni have donated many dollars and hours to make successful.
We finish our semester by saying our goodbyes to brothers Zach Rilett, Kenny Rappuhn, Sam Ginsburg who graduated in December. We wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors. We also wish Mason Pelphrey safe travels as he will spend the spring semester studying abroad in Reading, England!
All in all, it is safe to say that this was another successful semester in the books for the brothers of the Theta-Xi Chapter of Kappa Sigma.
I hope you all have a safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
