L uxury, modern living is taking the nation by storm. Whether it's the addition of new lofts in our city centers or revamped student housing at Purdue University, it seems it's "out with the old, in with the new." Our chapter house at 690 Waldron has served as a wonderful home for generations of brothers. While countless lives were shaped behind its doors, it's hard not to notice our facility is aging. It's time to bring some "new" to Sigma Phi Epsilon. Our fraternity is not the only one that understands changes must be made to stay relevant. Large-scale renovations and rebuilds are happening across campus. While we each know the quality of our membership, our chapter house must reflect the strength of our chapter and keep our competitive edge. Recolonization brought us a stronger, more value-focused Indiana Alpha, and the AVC has carefully evaluated the best path to maintain attracting the right members. To meet the ever-changing needs of today's students, alumni leadership has determined that a major house renovation will be the best way remain competitive in the Purdue Greek community. How do we accomplish this? By launching The Campaign for Indiana Alpha—A New Beginning. This campaign will provide a full-scale upgrade to our facility. Among its many features, it will accommodate 41 live-in brothers, establish a SigEp Learning Center (SLC), provide ample space for socializing, and serve as a communal space for alumni returning to campus. These updates will not only keep our undergraduates competitive at Purdue but with SigEp chapters nationwide. This project has been a long time coming and the Indiana Alpha AVC is more than ready to get to work. But we cannot do it without you. Early commitments totaling $1,116,137 from 34 generous donors has kick-started the race to our $1.75 million campaign goal. It will take support from every brother to get us across the finish line. As you receive more details on the campaign over the next few weeks, we encourage you to reflect on why you joined this fraternity. Each of us committed to a lifetime membership in Sigma Phi Epsilon during initiation. Now it's on us to ensure that membership still benefits undergraduates and alumni alike. Here's to the next chapter in our fraternity's future—we hope you join us in writing it!
