Notes from the House


Into The Spring Semester at the House 

February, 2015

First off, we would like to announce that Kappa Sigma had the highest cumulative GPA of all fraternities on campus, with a 3.14 as a chapter.
As we came back to campus from Christmas break we all shared stories about how our breaks were, but the biggest story over break was new alumni Ryan Goodhew gradutating from his Marine Corps officer training. This ceremony was held in Mason, Ohio, Ryan’s hometown. Several brothers travelled down to support and congratulate brother Goodhew on his accomplishment. Goodhew is now living in Kalamazoo after graduation, and in March he will head to Florida for an extended period of training. On behalf of the whole fraternity, we congratulate brother Goodhew on his success and thank him for his service to our country.

This first month of the semester was focused on Rush. We prioritized inviting potentials up to the house and talking to them about pledging the number one fraternity in the country. Some of the Rush events we had were a National Championship Game party, Super Bowl party, Closed Smoker, and more. These events allowed us as brothers to get to better know the men we hope to one day call brothers.
Part of our Rush efforts this semester involved designing shirts to wear around campus to promote the Fraternity. We would like to thank Brother Mike Brown for his donation of the shirts to help out our
 cause. We aren’t the only ones wearing these shirts to show our love for our fraternity, as the Kappa Sigma Alpha sorority also wore them to help us out.

In the past week we’ve hosted two mixers with Gamma Phi Epsilon and Kappa Sigma Alpha sororities. These events help us connect with our fellow Greeks on campus, and also serve as a valuable Rush functions.
Over M.L.K. weekend, a few brothers visited the retirement home here in town to spend some time with the people there and hear theor stories. In the week prior to spring break, Kappa Sigma will be hosting a fundraising night at Las Limas, a local restaurant. Proceeds from the evening will go to our Military Heroes campaign.

Brothers and their families are invited to join us at the house after the Scholarship Gala for drinks and good times.
