Thank you. epSilon MU SetS planS in Motion for another SUCCeSSfUl SeMeSter T he Epsilon Mu Chapter accomplished a great deal, and remained a leader not only on campus but also in our community during the fall 2016 semester. We grew as a chapter and as men. Moving forward, we look to continue our philanthropic efforts, community engagement, and growth shown throughout 2016. Community Service On January 27, our men participated in a community service event at the Boys and Girls Club of Muncie. We also paired with Delta Zeta in a camp adventure community service event. In the coming months, we plan to continue making an impact in and around the Muncie community, as well as partnering with Ball State's Office of Community Engagement for an event later in the semester. Academics The chapter has a new academic plan and committee this semester that is dedicated to being a prominent figure in the academic community on Ball State's campus. Some of the provisions in the new plan include tailored success plans for all members, organized and proctored study tables, and utilization of campus resources. We are confident these changes will help propel Epsilon Mu into the top tier of fraternities academically. Philanthropic Efforts On April 8, Epsilon Mu will host its seventh annual Army Games in the front yard. Several new implementations have been made that we think will make this our most successful event yet! The Army Games committee has worked tirelessly, reaching out to sponsors and vendors to create impressive anticipation for this event. Our goal is to raise over $10,000 for the Fisher House Foundation, an organization that provides military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease, or injury. Your Support Helps Us Remain Competitive The executive committee met the weekend of January 20-21 for its retreat at the home of Epsilon Mu charter member Dan Hockney '65. It was an enlightening weekend that was filled with positive ideas and bonding that have allowed us to face the spring semester together. We are very pleased to have such tremendous alumni support. In addition to Dan, we also thank John Knox '78 and David Frye '04 for all the wisdom and guidance they provide the chapter. As we look ahead, Epsilon Mu is set to succeed in all its endeavors. We are very excited about the opportunities that await, and look forward to being able to share all our achievements and successes with you.
