spring 2020 A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE - The Campaign for Indiana Beta A s freshmen, we trusted Sigma Alpha Epsilon to provide us with opportunities and memories no other place at Purdue could offer. It gave us leadership, friendship, and a network of alumni contacts. Our membership made us leading men on campus— True Gentlemen. That's how I'll remember our brotherhood, but how will our brotherhood remember us? Though we each made an impression as undergraduates, it's our work as alumni that will create a legacy. Joining the Tradition of Excellence: The Campaign for Indiana Beta is the best way to ensure your name goes down in history as a loyal ΣAE alumnus. Over 200 brothers have already left their mark on Purdue ΣAE. Those who give $5,000 or more will have their name prominently inscribed in our home. How do you want ΣAE to remember you? The Traditions of Excellence campaign will conclude this calendar year. That means your chances of having your name recognized on the donor plaque are dwindling. Add giving to Purdue ΣAE to the top of your 2020 to-do list. Your gift will be put to work immediately as we complete the $500,000 worth of exterior updates we outlined in the fall. Use the enclosed pledge form or set up easy recurring payments through our online donation portal at You can change the future of our chapter for as little as $41.67 a month over five years. By giving just dollars a day, you'll make a monumental difference on the future of Purdue ΣAE. Each of us is a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon for life. Our actions as alumni define how we'll be remembered as brothers of Purdue ΣAE. Don't waste your chance to join the hundreds of brothers who believe in our fraternity. There's still time to send your gift before the December 31 deadline. What legacy will you choose to leave? Phi Alpha, Wayne McIntyre '64, Campaign Chairman (408) 930-1438 | Trust in the ΣΑΕ Experience Your Gift Leaves a Lasting Legacy at Purdue ΣΑΕ S igma Alpha Epsilon has had a very successful school year, academically, philanthropically, and recruitment wise. We recently held a health awareness seminar for men in Greek life and on campus. Two great speakers talked about ways we can be better gentlemen in our everyday lives. One of our alumni, Wayne McIntyre '64, provided one of the speakers, Jenny Howe, who talked to us about the science behind anxious responses and how one can learn to retrain the brain to tolerate what we feel is impossible. Since we had great success in recruitment last semester, we continued to the spring and recruited 16 new members. Our newly renovated house helped draw the attention of the new members. While we are happy with our recruitment, we are also happy with our philanthropic achievements, where we raised around $20,000. We plan to beat that number next semester by holding even more events on campus and in the community. At a 2.96 cumulative GPA, we placed above the all-fraternity and all-men's averages. Every brother strives to better their grades, and we are implementing programs to enhance our focus on academics. As a chapter, we are very excited for the future and longevity of our fraternity. When we implement the values we have as ΣAEs and the work we do philanthropically, we will have everything necessary to grow as true gentlemen.
