T hroughout the fall semester, New Hampshire Beta has been involved in numerous philanthropic and community service efforts. Being put on social probation was a wake-up call for the chapter and opened our eyes to what was important to sustain our brotherhood. We hosted one of our largest philanthropic events since the chapter re-opened—the inaugural Winter Classic, a hockey game against Pi Kappa Alpha. The game was extremely close, but ΣΑΕ prevailed 2-1 in overtime. Through GoFundMe, ticket, and T-shirt sales we were able to raise more than $5,000 for the Wounded Warrior Foundation. We also added a new position to the executive council called the GPEP chairman. This position is responsible for recording and submitting all of our events to gain GPEP points, a system that the University uses to rank all Greek organizations. At the end of the 2015 fall semester, we were ranked 18th out of all Greek organizations. At the end of the 2016 spring semester, we were ranked fifth and the second-highest fraternity. We were able to achieve this ranking through philanthropic, fundraising, and community service commitments from our brothers. UndergradUaTes InITIaTe 19 new MeMbers This fall, we hired a new house dad who lives in the suite on the first floor. His name is Mike Ruff and he has been a great addition to the chapter house. Within the first two weeks of being at school, we planned and hosted a philanthropic event with Chi Omega—a Spikeball tournament benefitting the Durham Fire Department. Multiple news organizations covered the event and it was a great way to start the semester. On September 25, we initiated 19 new gentlemen into the fraternity. They have been a great addition and all have shown commitment to ΣAE and the values that we stand for. new HaMpsHIre beTa welcoMes new cHapTer advIsor We are also excited to have a new chapter advisor, Tom Johnson '75, who has been extremely helpful through the tough times we experienced in the last year. He has been incredibly committed to the chapter and we cannot thank him enough. The focus of the fall semester is centered on philanthropic events raising money for local charities and The Children's Miracle Network. As we finalize events, we will communicate details through the alumni Facebook page, Sigma Alpha Epsilon New Hampshire Beta Alumni. We look forward to a great semester and hope to see more alumni at the chapter house!
