converse and learn from some of our greatest and most successful SAE alumni. Recruitment While fall semester recruitment isn't nearly as intensive as spring and summer, we are pleased to have five strong new members. Only needing to recruit a few members allowed us to really delve into the prospective members and be decisive on whether we believed they are True Gentlemen. We have already started recruitment for the fall semester and are working aggressively to bring in another new member class of around 30 quality men. Last semester, we set a recent record with a new member class of 33 men. With this great accomplishment, we were awarded the Recruitment Challenge from SAE National. This included a cash award of $2,700 to be used for our Leadership and Education Fund, which provides scholarships to brothers who qualify. The Most Important Piece SAE has accomplished a great deal this past semester and is still on the rise. Nevertheless, none of this would have happened without the alumni support we received day in and day out. I say with confidence that the best times are ahead for the Kansas Beta Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. So again, I would like to thank all of the gracious alumni who have supported us through the years and continue to support us today. Phi Alpha brothers, Corbin Neimtschk '18 Eminent Archon A PublicAtion of the KAnsAs betA chAPter of sigmA AlPhA ePsilon sPring 2015 The lion's lore Kansas Beta Is on the Rise A s a chapter, we strive to be the best, and with each semester we grow stronger. With our house full for the second semester in a row and involvement in the chapter at an all-time high, I feel that we are on the rise. Some of the newest members in the chapter are taking leadership positions, teaching them responsibility and what it means to be an officer. SAE is stronger now than in recent years, and I believe we will continue to push ourselves to reach new heights and become a vision of leadership on the Kansas State campus. Accomplishments For the spring, we again have 54 men living in the chapter house. Our capacity is 55 and this is the fullest the house has been in 10 years. Our recruitment team continues to impress the members with more and more quality men. We ranked seventh in GPA out of the 25 fraternities on Kansas State's campus at the end of the fall semester, with a 3.03. We set a goal of a 3.2 or higher to accomplish by the end of this semester. These two accomplishments really show that we are pushing to better ourselves not only individually but as a whole. Homecoming was a great success. We partnered with Beta Theta Pi and Sigma Kappa and placed in the top five teams for our float design and parade etiquette. We had a Las Vegas- themed float complete with a 12-foot-6-inch slot machine that, in true SAE fashion, dismantled a street light during the parade. We kept a piece of the stoplight and framed it. It now sits in our chapter trophy case. Lastly, we are extremely proud to report that Zachary Keller '16, the former eminent archon, has been accepted into the SAE Inner Circle program, where he will have the opportunity to Chapter house reaChes CapaCity The 2015 intramural basketball team.
