The last few years, we have been very close but lacking in certain areas. To make it happen this semester, we have focused on connecting volunteerism with philanthropy, strengthening academics, and holding numerous brotherhood and social events. As a chapter, we decided to start a new volunteer program called "Taus in the City." This encourages our brothers to volunteer with organizations in the Lincoln community. This year, we volunteered at People's City Mission as well as our annual philanthropy organization, Bryan Health Cancer Center. Many active brothers have had loved ones struggle with cancer themselves, so this cause is very meaningful to us. In terms of academics, we strive to become one of the top fraternities on campus, and we believe we are on the right track to accomplishing this. We have implemented study hour sessions on weeknights, in which all members are encouraged to study with their fellow brothers. This has helped us to hold one another accountable and strive to earn high grades. We have also provided our freshmen with upperclassmen mentors to guide them in their classes and transition to college, which has also proved to be successful. It's been a busy semester with several brotherhood and social events, which bring us all together every week. For brotherhood, we held events such as ATΩ Olympics, paintball, movie nights, and a new Bible study group. We had our semiannual, out-of-town formal in Oklahoma City this March, which was an enjoyable time for all. In addition, we hosted several semiformals in Lincoln, with themes such as Derby, Masquerade, and Casino. We have also involved our parents in multiple different events with Mom's, Dad's, and Parents Day events all occurring this semester. It is an honor to serve as president of Gamma Theta Chapter. As we on the executive board navigate through the rest of our terms, we will be sure to uphold the core values that have been instilled in us. I appreciate all our alumni do to support us, and I hope to see all of you at the alumni tailgate event in the fall.
