Kansas Beta was named the No. 1 Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter in the nation (out of some 240 chapters), winning the John O. Moseley Award for fraternity zeal. According to award criteria, the winner "best exemplifies a model chapter who excels in its operations and brotherhood … going above and beyond expectations." ΣAE at K-State was also one of eight chapters (among more than 6,000 across 58 men's fraternities) to receive the Chapter of Distinction award from the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). This is the second time the chapter has won these awards, as they won them respectively in 2020 and 2021. "It is truly an exciting time to be associated with Kansas Beta," Housing Corporation President Steve Lacy '76 said. "We are extremely proud of our young men for securing these unprecedented achievements."
