ALPHA C HI ALPHA C HI REVIEW REVIEW P H I K A P PA TAU | A L P H A C H I C H A P T E R | S P R I N G 2 0 2 3 THE THE S pring is back in Starkville, and we're in for an exceptional year at Alpha Chi! April 2023 marks 85 years since the Phi Kappa Tau tradition came to Mississippi State University. Officially, April 30 marks the anniversary of Alpha Chi's chartering, but with the school year ending on May 1, we've elected to hold our celebration two weeks early. If you're a frequent reader of The Alpha Chi Review, you know how passionate our brotherhood is. Each issue showcases our lifelong commitment to brotherhood, learning, ethical leadership, and exemplary character—whether from the active chapter and their accomplishments, updates from the house corporation, or spotlight articles and news updates on local alumni. (Not to mention the brothers who raised more than $1.5 million to give our brothers a home on campus!) All that and more is reason enough to come together and celebrate as brothers! We hope you'll join us in person on April 14-15. In the meantime, we want to hear your reasons to celebrate. Share your favorite Alpha Chi moments with us on social media—we can't wait to read them as the day approaches. In the meantime, take a look at some pictures of Alpha Chi brothers from 1938 and 1955 to the right. You'll receive more details by email soon. For now, our active members are excited to share their plans for the spring—I'll let President Jack Flower '20 take it from here (see his article below). Please reach out with any questions, and we look forward to seeing you! Fraternally, Barry Toney '85 VP/Treasurer House Corporation Vice Chairman and Alumni Advisor Board of Governors (214) 926-3348 GET READY TO CELEBRATE! GET READY TO CELEBRATE! Looking Back at 85 Years O ur annual Alumni Weekend is just around the corner, and we have a jam-packed schedule of events in celebration of our 85th anniversary! We'll kick off the weekend on Friday, April 14, with our new, annual scholarship banquet in the Union ballroom to celebrate the outstanding academic achievements of our active brothers, spring associates, and excelling recruiters. Our recently established fund, The Alpha Chi Guiding Star Scholarship Program, has made many of these scholarships possible. Later that evening, we will celebrate our anniversary with dinner at the chapter house. We hope that all alumni can join us as we reminisce on our fraternity's long and storied history and the memories we've made throughout the years. This will be a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet the current members and associates of Alpha Chi. On Saturday, April 15, we'll enjoy a crawfish boil and live music at the chapter house before heading to Dudy Noble Field to cheer on the Bulldogs baseball team as they take on Ole Miss. We hope you can make it to our Alumni Weekend on April 14-15, and we look forward to seeing you all soon. A more detailed schedule of events will be sent out in the coming weeks. Please RSVP to our vice president of alumni relations, John Baladi '20, at Sincerely, Jack Flower '20 Chapter President Making Our 85th a Weekend to Remember We Hope to See You in April! 1955 85 85 th th ANNIVERSARY ANNIVERSARY
