Spring 2022 A s the spring ends and summer begins, the chapter has continued its upward trend established last fall. With almost every COVID-19 restriction lifted in the beginning of February, we were able to return to relatively normal operations this past spring. To start, ΣAE Purdue has once again seen great recruitment success. The new initiates have developed a great passion for the house and are extremely eager to become more involved when it comes to holding positions in the chapter house. As we know, recruitment never stops. Newly elected Recruitment Chairmen Ben Anderson '25 and Pete Bell '25 are extremely excited to continue recruiting over the summer. Please send your recommendations to We're looking to add 50 new True Gentlemen by mid-September. Our success goes beyond just recruitment. We have placed an emphasis on establishing a healthy culture within the house and among the brothers. Brothers John Tordi '24 and Casey Cornelius '24 have created a new project chairman position, which the house is very excited about. This position plans and organizes small home improvements and renovation projects where brothers can volunteer to participate. This position has seen quick success, with many brothers wanting to volunteer to help improve the chapter house aesthetically. Not only have we found success within the chapter house, but we have also experienced it externally in events on campus. Through our philanthropic efforts, we raised over $8,000 during Mom's Day and Paddy Murphy week. In athletics, our intramural basketball and softball teams brought home a trophy and won the championship in their leagues. We also have everything in place to participate in the Grand Prix race next school year; the cart will be driven by Brother Kent Vaccaro '24. Now that my term is over and I can reflect, our accomplishments this semester greatly surpassed my expectations. I am extremely confident that this success will remain long-lived. Indiana Beta is going into the fall semester with a brotherhood that is as strong as ever, with many brothers (holding an officer position or not) excited and wanting to help in any way they can. We finished the spring semester with a 3.1 chapter GPA, and we're looking to improve next fall. Speaking of the fall, we are also entering this upcoming semester sanction-free once again. This is the first time we have entered the fall semester sanction-free in about four years. The new executive committee is eager to continue establishing a healthy culture and continue this remarkable success. I am extremely confident in this new executive committee, led by Ben Sobieray '24 as the new Eminent Archon. I am glad we have surpassed the expectations we have set for ourselves, and I am truly honored to have served as Eminent Archon.
