A PublicAtion of the KAnsAs betA chAPter of sigmA AlPhA ePsilon sPring 2016 The lion's lore T hrough hard work and determination, we have elevated Sigma Alpha Epsilon to a position where we actively compete for the role of top fraternity at Kansas State University. We have not only increased our campus involvement, but our social presence as well. Our culture inspires members to enthusiastically pursue larger responsibilities, not for only themselves, but also their community. Overall, Kansas Beta maintains an optimistic outlook for the future. Our goals were simple in the fall of 2015: win Homecoming, earn a 3.3 GPA, and increase our presence in the community. We accomplished these goals by having an "all in" mentality. Everyone in our chapter wants to make a difference, and that's our culture. We won Homecoming, earned a 3.3 GPA, and recorded 612 community service hours. The chapter house is once again full, and we have a prime opportunity to increase our presence in the community. We have done just that; every member is a part of an on-campus organization that is unrelated to the fraternity. In fact, many brothers are also leaders in these organizations. When members are not involved in activities on campus, they shift attention to the larger community of Manhattan. The chapter is on track to complete the most recorded community service hours of any fraternity for the school year. We are involved and motivated. CHAPTER WINS HOMECOMING Homecoming was a blast this year. Our partners, Kappa Alpha Theta and Phi Delta Theta, put in a tremendous amount of effort to bring home a victory. Winning Homecoming was a great experience and one we will never forget. We are also proud to note that we had more participants in the Homecoming 5K than any other organization. MEMBERS DELIVER FOURTH HIGHEST GPA OF 25 FRATERNITIES The significant increase in our GPA ranked the chapter fourth of 25 fraternities on campus. Still hungry for improvement, our new goal this spring is to earn a 3.4 GPA. I have great confidence that we will achieve this goal. BROTHERS RECORD 612 COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS It is important that we are making a difference in our community. We help our local elementary schools, the Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan, and volunteer at the Flint Hills Bread Basket. We also find that it is important to support other Greek philanthropies. Our goal for recruitment is to maintain capacity. Spring recruitment was extremely selective, and we welcomed three new members. We recruited these brothers based on our true values, and we believe they have a lot of potential for Kansas Beta and the Manhattan community. PARTNERS PLACE SECOND IN GREEK WEEK Earlier this spring, we paired with Alpha Delta Pi and Pi Kappa Phi for Greek Week. We had outstanding participation from all three chapters. We are very proud to say that we placed second in Greek Week, only shy of first place by a mere two points. We would like to thank all of our alumni who have continued to support us throughout the years. All of these accomplishments would not be possible without you. Kansas Beta is excited for the future, and we look forward to sharing in it with you. As always, if you find yourself in Manhattan, please stop by the chapter house. We would love to show you around.
