R ecruitment is the lifeblood of a Fraternity. Getting the best and brightest is critical to our success. Due to privacy laws, the university no longer provides lists of incoming students. They leave it up to each Fraternity to develop their own database from responses to mailings, social media, connections with schoolmates, and alumni referrals. If you know of any potential members heading to MST, contact Recruitment Chairman Blaine Hrovat '15 at (573) 465-8124 or bthcn6@mst.edu. The Chapter House is now 6 years old and starting to show some wear. We are beginning to replace sofas and coffee tables along with several washers and dryers. We just had all the rooms in the addition painted, and purchased new chairs for the dining room. Keeping up with the maintenance in a Fraternity house is almost a full-time job. Rich Manning '78, treasurer of the Alumni House Corporation, has handled our accounting, billing, and collections for many years. He is retiring from these responsibilities and we thank him for his service. We will transition to a local Rolla resident, Errica Hartley; she will handle the billing, collecting, and general administrative work for the House Corporation. If you get something from her in the mail, you will know she is part of the team. In roughly 18 months, we will celebrate the 115th anniversary of the Beta-Chi Chapter at MST/UMR/MSM. We are going to make it a big event, so plan on attending. Start contacting your pledge brothers. The class of 2013 will celebrate its five- year anniversary; the class of 2008 will celebrate its 10-year anniversary; the class of 1998 will celebrate its 20-year anniversary; and the great pledge class of 1958 will celebrate its 60th anniversary. I look forward to another great year at the Beta-Chi Chapter of Kappa Sigma. Thank you for your continued support. A.E.K.D.B. Robert Hoffmann '78 Alumni House Fund Association President roberth@hoffmanbros.com Beta-Chi Proudly Demonstrates the Four Pillars of Kappa Sigma T hroughout this semester, the Beta-Chi Chapter has continued to exemplify the four pillars by which we stand: scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service. Every year we make it our mission to set the bar higher, and we continue to thrive on campus and within our brotherhood. FELLOWSHIP We have six spring initiates, all of whom are promising young men. For the fall semester, Recruitment Chairman Blaine Hrovat '15 has already received seven signed bid cards. Considering how early it is in the recruitment season, next fall's new member class looks very promising. Blaine plans on signing at least 35 men by the fall, and he is confident in his ability to do so. SCHOLARSHIP Scholarship is another way Beta-Chi excels on campus. With a 3.003 overall GPA, our Chapter GPA is higher than the all-men and all-student GPAs. This marks the eighth semester we've been above the all-men's GPA. Scholarship remains extremely important to our members. Beta-Chi at this spring's White Columns Cleanup.
