A PublicAtion of the KAnsAs betA chAPter of sigmA AlPhA ePsilon fAll 2014 The lion's lore INSIDE: Thank You, Loyal Alumni 2 Chapter Eternal 3 Welcome, New Members 3 Kansas Beta Celebrates Accomplishments SAE on the Upswing T he challenges and opportunities of the last few years have paid off. As many of you know, we have been on an upward path. This fall, I am proud to say that we have broken through the barrier and really taken the University and entire Greek community by storm. Our leadership throughout the chapter has given the new members a positive outlook, and I am very optimistic they will be the next leaders on the Kansas State campus. Accomplishments For the fall semester, we have 54 men living in the chapter house. Our capacity is 55. We have not been this full for at least 10 years. This is an amazing accomplishment and ties directly to the leadership of our recruitment team as they continually bring in the best talent. In other news, our GPA last spring was 3.1, a significant improvement over the previous year. With a 3.1 average, we surpassed the university all-men's GPA and were 11th out of the 25 fraternities. Both of these are great strides, and we continue to stress the need to get better. Recently, the SAE house hosted a philanthropy event consisting of an all-you-can-eat chicken wing bar with a series of raffle prizes. The proceeds for Children's Miracle Network were in excess of $2,400. Recruitment We had the best summer recruitment in many years. The new member class consists of 33 men and is the largest class of any fraternity at K-State. The class is composed of Putnam and Wabash scholars, as well as all-state athletes from Kansas and Missouri. We are proud they joined SAE, and we will watch them carefully as they grow into True Gentlemen. Academics After achieving a 3.1 GPA in the spring, our new goal is to obtain a 3.2 for the fall semester and win the Province Zeta award for best GPA. Over time, we have won this award more often than any Province Zeta chapter. We are looking to regain the leadership position through brotherly competition. Winning the Province award would put us in the top five for grades among all fraternities. The Most Important Piece SAE accomplished a great deal last semester and is hungry for more. However, none of this would happen without the alumni support we receive day in and day out. I say with confidence that the best times are ahead for Kansas Beta. So again, I thank all of our gracious alumni who have supported us through the years and continue to support us today.
