Give Back to Phi Kappa Theta National Fraternity, Iowa Xi Chapter W hen making donations to the national fra- ternity, alumni have an option to desig- nate half of their donation to the local chapter. We would like to encourage all Iowa Xi alumni to "check the box" on the form for donating to the Phi Kappa Theta Foundation. By doing so, you are helping to fund important national pro- grams that make a difference for undergraduates and alumni as well as funding scholarships and infrastructure projects for Iowa Xi. This allows you to make donations at both levels—the na- tional fraternity and Iowa Xi—in one easy do- nation. If you didn't get an alumni appeal from the Foundation recently, you can donate online at 2019 Marks Memorable Milestones at Iowa Xi D id you know that there are several key an- niversaries in 2019? Iowa Xi is celebrat- ing its 95th anniversary as an active chapter, it is the 60th anniversary of the merger of Phi Kappa and Theta Kappa Phi, and it is the 130th anniversary of the founding of Phi Kappa. In preparation to celebrate our 100th anni- versary in 2024, the alumni board approved a proposal to write a history of Iowa Xi. It will cover key events for the chapter, Iowa State's Greek system, Iowa State, Ames, and the na- tional fraternity from 1920 to the present day. Leo Landis '87 and Greg Stolp '84 will lead a team of volunteers in researching, drafting, editing, and publishing the history. If you are interested in helping the Iowa Xi history team, please contact Leo and Greg at and stolpgd@gmail. com, respectively.
