A True Gentleman Brother Patrick Sullivan '16 Wins Charles O. McGaughey Leadership Award G iven the negative publicity of late about fraternity behavior by a few outliers, it is a good time to reflect on how this is the antithesis of life at Indiana Beta. Our chapter walks the talk about leadership on campus and beyond. One need look no further than Brother Patrick Sullivan '16, who is emblematic of the type of actives that the chapter has recruited. He has distinguished himself on many fronts. Besides holding several chapter offices, he is the vice president of administration for the Purdue Interfraternity Council. He was a driving force in creating and implementing a new alcohol policy that bans high-proof alcohol from all chapter properties and events on campus. Presidents of all but one fraternity voted to adopt the new policy. Patrick was nationally recognized last year at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon 79th John O. Moseley Leadership School as Outstanding Eminent Treasurer of the Year and runner-up for Chapter Financial Management. This month, we were notified that Patrick was awarded the prestigious Charles O. McGaughey Leadership Award, which honors Purdue undergraduates who show leadership abilities and appreciation for basic American values. He was also awarded the 2015 John Wooden Leader of the Year Award from the Purdue Interfraternity Council. Congratulations to Patrick, one of many True Gentlemen at Indiana Beta.

O ur chapter grows and improves each year, and we are excited to be at the helm of an incredible era for Indiana Beta. This year, the undergraduate brothers are making an extra effort to reach out to our alumni to make our fraternity stronger than ever before. As one of the oldest chapters in the area, we have established ourselves as a leading organization throughout SAE once again. Today we have over 180 active members, all of whom contribute to the growth and welfare of our brotherhood. A CHAPTER DEDICATED TO PHILANTHROPY & SERVICE Indiana Beta has dramatically increased its presence in community service and philanthropic endeavors this year. Over 70 brothers participated in last semester's Purdue University Dance Marathon, an 18-hour philanthropy event conducted by a student organization whose mission is to raise money and awareness for the Children's Miracle Network.
