ΚΣ C lumns Kappa Sigma Fraternity at Missouri University of Science and Technology | Fall 2021 Beta Chi C ongratulations to Beta-Chi for winning the Founder's Award for Chapter Excellence for the second year in a row. This is the highest honor given by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. The pandemic has created challenges for the Fraternity and its undergraduate members. One of those challenges is the increase in students with financial needs. This semester, the Beta-Chi Educational Foundation is delivering 13 financial aid scholarships, totaling $22,500, to both actives and pledges. I want to thank our generous alumni for their support of these scholarships. Some of the funds came from Missouri S&T matching funds. If you want to help a Brother in need, please donate to the Beta-Chi Educational Foundation at http://beta-chi.com/giving-back/donate-now. This year, Missouri S&T stopped providing internet services, so we acquired and installed new equipment and hired a local provider. We also hard-wired the entire house. Thanks again to the Beta-Chi Educational Foundation for funding this effort. The university recently built several new dorms but did not hit its enrollment goals. As a result, they had empty dorm rooms. MS&T then imposed dorm cancellation fees on Greeks, imposed new Greek fees, and stopped providing critical recruiting data. These changes have hurt our ability to recruit. We are working with the university and other Greek organizations to improve our ability to recruit. Please let us know of any students heading to MS&T. We're looking forward to a great year at the Beta-Chi Chapter of Kappa Sigma! Please let us know if you need help organizing a class reunion. I hope you and your family stay healthy and safe.
