Aer all, we are brothers for life and the bond we share can never be broken. On August 4, Zeta Chi won our first Smythe! is milestone has been long awaited. e blood, sweat, and tears the chapter devoted this past year proved to Nationals that Zeta Chi is one of the best Pi Kappa Alpha chapters in the nation. Ethan Johnson '16, Logan Graybill '16, and our chapter advisor, Zach Dumas '12, were able to attend the academy in Memphis to receive the Smythe. In addition, Ethan spoke at one of the lectures on his role as mental health chairman and how prominent it is in Greek life. Zeta Chi is proud of all the accomplisments this past semester and cannot wait for the opportunities to come. We are constanty looking for new ideas and ways to take this chapter to the next level. Aer winning a Smythe and experiencing the feelings it brings, the chapter is on the hunt to win another this year.
