alpha tau omega • University of nebraska-lincoln • fall 2013 Gamma Theta Earns Second True Merit Award I f there were any lingering doubts about whether Gamma Theta was back, this should settle it. The chapter has earned its second consecutive True Merit Award. Perhaps even stronger evidence is that the former worthy master, Joe Dougherty '09, was in the running for the Thomas Arkle Clark Award, our fraternity's highest individual honor. The last Tau to win the award was Blake Anderson '00 in 2003, and before that, Brett West '92 in 1995. Joe was instrumental in getting the chapter back on solid footing and leading Gamma Theta to True Merit in 2012. His influence, along with the other executive board members, will be longlasting and is much appreciated by the board. Chapter Recruits Quality New Members This year's new member class consists of quality guys from Kearney, Beatrice, Blair, Lincoln, Omaha, Papillion, Elkhorn, and Columbus, as well as South Dakota, Minnesota, and California. The class also includes five legacy members. Thank you to all the alumni who referred potential brothers and helped with recruitment. Help Us Remain Competitive Those of you who have been on UNL's campus lately have probably noticed several things: • A lot of construction • A handful of new buildings • The most updated 100-year-old football stadium in the land Many of these new structures are fraternity houses and UNL dorm rooms. ATW must remain competitive in order to stay at the top of its game. To get the quality guys we want in our chapter, we need to keep up with updates happening on campus. The board continues to explore options to update the chapter house and keep Gamma Theta at the forefront of fraternity life at UNL. Undergraduates and alumni prepare to cheer on the Huskers. Bob O'Neal '71 enjoys an afternoon tailgating with his wife and friends at the September 7 Nebraska vs. Wyoming football game.

We look forward to seeing you. On September 7, ATW held its annual alumni tailgate event prior to the Nebraska vs. Wyoming football game. Alumni from six decades walked through the doors of the Old Stone Fortress to meet the current chapter members, hear about the plans for the future, and enjoy some good, old-fashioned tailgate fare. We encourage you to take an active role in the future of the chapter.
