The lion's lore page 2 Kansas Beta Welcomes 19 New Members, Promotes Academic Excellence SAE on the Upswing In the past few semesters, we have had great success positioning SAE as one of the top fraternities at Kansas State. We have also had a substantial increase in our presence on campus. Our leadership throughout the chapter has given new members a positive outlook, and I am optimistic they will be the next leaders on the K-State campus. Accomplishments For the fall 2015 semester, we are once again at capacity. Every member is part of an on-campus organization. On the first day of classes, we hosted a Greek-wide concert on the Kansas Beta front lawn, which was paid for by the K-State Greek Affairs. This year at our biannual National Convention, we had two members, including myself, selected as part of SAE's new marketing program for the True Gentlemen Experience. We were also fortunate enough to send three brothers to our annual leadership cruise, where they gained valuable insight on organizational leadership. Last semester, we launched a new program to promote networking between undergraduates and alumni. This program is to allow our members to pair up with alumni in similar career paths to gain insight on their future career. Recruitment Last fall, we had K-State's largest new member class on campus. This fall, we have an outstanding new member class of 19 men, who all exemplify the characteristics we value. Through the leadership of the upperclassmen, this new member class will learn not only how to be successful in college, but how to embrace the True Gentleman Experience. Academics Last spring, our new member class was ranked number one for all fraternities with a 3.825 average GPA. At Family Day in September, we recognized 15 members who had a GPA of 3.5 or higher last spring. As a chapter, our goal is to have an average 3.3 GPA. Obtaining this goal could put us in the top five for all 25 fraternities on campus. As a whole, we decided to increase the weekly required study hours to reach our goal. We are fostering an environment that promotes academic success. The Most Important Piece SAE has accomplished a great deal these past few years 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 the gracious alumni who have supported us through the years and continue to support us today. Phi Alpha brothers, Daniel A.
