Ball State University Epsilon Mu Chapter Spring 2014 the IrIS Campaign Brotherhood. Shelter. Future. T his past year has proven to be monumental in Epsilon Mu's 47-year history. The chapter continues to show its dominance, recruiting 60 new members this spring and earning its thirteenth Hugh Shields Award for Chapter Excellence. We have been working hard on Campaign 50 to raise $1.175 million for the renovation of the Shelter, which will leave a physical mark of excellence at Ball State University. Since the summer of 2010, 103 alumni and friends have pledged $815,526 to the campaign. While 103 sounds like a large number of donors, it means that more than 884 alumni have not contributed. Delta Tau Delta is a premier fraternity and remains at the heart of Greek life at Ball State University. Our alumni were leaders as undergraduates and have been successful in their careers. Those are the facts that gave us confidence as we developed an ambitious plan to renovate the Shelter. Since the campaign announcement, we have contacted brothers via letters, e-mails, newsletter articles, and class leader calls, telling everyone our plans and how great the needs and opportunities are. Many alumni are making pledges, while others have voiced support but are waiting to make their commitments. If you have been waiting to make a commitment, now is the time! We need your support to secure funds and execute the renovation of our home. Several features of the renovation plan: • Expand facility with a west wing to add needed services • New grand entry courtyard of honor with brother recognition pavers • New brotherhood dining hall with full caterer kitchen • New grand foyer • True quiet library for undergraduate studies • Full workout and fitness room • Fraternity Hall of Recognition: plaques, memorabilia, pledge class paddles, etc. • Office and meeting space for chapter leadership Joining your brothers to help us build for the next generation of Delts is a great way to give back just a little of what the DTD experience gave to you. Your pledge will show your continued commitment to our undergraduate brothers, fellow alumni, and the promises you made at your initiation into our beloved fraternity. Throughout this campaign process, it has been a delight to revisit old friends, make new ones, and see how much the Epsilon Mu experience has meant to all of us. I hope you'll add your name to the list of loyal brothers who have made this journey possible. Fraternally, E. Brad Wagnon '68 Campaign Chairman (765) 749-8556 P.S. The fifth annual EM Delt Golf Classic will take place July 19 at the Woodwind Golf Club. You don't want to miss this gathering of DTD brothers. Please see page 6 for more details!
