P I K E P R E S S Gamma Chi Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha at Oklahoma State University SPRING 2016 T his has been an exciting spring for Gamma Chi Chapter! Construction on our new home is underway and each day brings us one step closer to project completion. Additionally, alumni returned in April for our Hall of Fame Banquet (see more on page 5), where an exciting announcement regarding the Honoring Our Legacy, Securing Our Future campaign was made. CONSTRUCTION UPDATE Since our groundbreaking in September, foundation has been poured, rebar installed, and waterproofing completed. The Gamma Chi project site will be even busier in the coming months. With framing underway, the outline of the house will really take shape, allowing alumni to catch their first glimpses of the future Gamma Chi. Alumni recently had the opportunity to visit the project site during the Hall of Fame Banquet weekend in April. For many, it was encouraging to stop by and see what their generous donations are helping to achieve. If you weren't able to make it, you can view our live feed of construction at www.cmswillowbrook.com/pikestream. CAMPAIGN STILL NEEDS SUPPORT To see our vision of a new Gamma Chi chapter house finally taking shape is exciting and a tangible symbol of the hard work and effort our campaign volunteers have invested in this endeavor. However, there is still much to be done. To date, we are still $1.9 million from fully funding this project. To help propel us toward our goal, brother Neal Patterson '68 has generously agreed to match any new gift dollar-for-dollar, up to $2 million, until December 31, 2016! If you have not already contributed to the campaign, now is the time! With this matching initiative, your gift will have twice the impact. Those who have already made their pledge of support can still take advantage of this special opportunity as well, either by adding an additional year to their pledge schedule or making another one-time gift. With more than $1.9 million left to meet our goal, I ask that if you have not contributed, please fill out the enclosed pledge card, or visit http://osupike.kintera.org/donate and make your commitment today. Please, do not delay. We need your support to ensure our construction timeline stays on track and our project is completed without any long-term debt. If you have already contributed, please consider adding a year to your pledge schedule or rally your class to make a group gift. If you have not contributed, now is the time! As you can see, this project is happening and we need the support of every brother to achieve success.
