ALPHA TAU OMEGA • UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN • FALL 2022 T he men of Gamma Theta Chapter have started strong this semester, taking full advantage of our first full semester without major COVID restrictions. 2022 marks the 125th anniversary of our chapter, and the brothers have represented ATΩ well and make the chapter proud. ATΩ CONGRESS ACCOLADES This summer, Max Dorfmeyer '20, Henry Thomsen '21, John Lamer '20, and I traveled to Orlando for the ATΩ Congress. At the event, we were awarded a scholarship award for our 3.1 spring GPA (which rests above the UNL male average) and a True Merit Honorable Mention for the third consecutive year. KEEPING BUSY WITH BROTHERS AND ALUMNI In the spring, we held a philanthropy event selling beef jerky, and in the fall, we hosted the Tau Tacos event for the first time since before COVID. Both events supported the Bryan Cancer Center. Our spring formal was in St. Louis, where brothers enjoyed Mardi Gras, and our fall formal was in Kansas City, where we enjoyed a Friday night Husker win and a great time with the chapter the next day. In addition to our formals, we hosted an alumni tailgate and parents formal and are excited to continue developing relationships with alumni and keep parents involved in their sons' ATΩ experience. MEMBERSHIP NUMBERS Gamma Theta recruited nine new members this spring and 32 for our fall pledge class. These recruiting efforts have put total membership at 113 members.

(Continued on page 3) O ne of the most important tasks we have as alumni is to work together to support our brotherhood, no matter how long ago you graduated. The bonds of ATΩ are everlasting and provided many of us with lifelong friends. The men who joined before us gave back to our fraternity so we could experience all our brotherhood has to offer at the University of Nebraska. Now is an excellent time to become involved with the Board of Trustees or become a mentor to chapter actives. The present demands are modest, which will give new volunteers an opportunity to slowly familiarize themselves with the organization and each other. How can I join the Board of Trustees? The board is looking for any alumni interested in volunteering, but bonus points if you live in or around the Omaha/Lincoln area to assist the board or chapter in person. How can I be a mentor? Mentorship doesn't have to be a huge time commitment. You can serve as an advisor, attend a Gamma Theta Chapter meeting to share job advice, or simply share your email with undergraduates to be a resource for those interested in your field of work. No matter the level of commitment, knowing you're furthering the future of our chapter and its members is immeasurably rewarding. If you're interested in giving back to ATΩ, reach out to one of the following trustees for more information: Bob Dudley, Shane Forney, Nathan Hagge, Jake Havranek, Brandon Keech, Jim Korff, Matt Olson, Robert O'Neal, Ken West, Bart Thomsen, Thank you, alumni, for joining us for the Homecoming Tailgate!
