O klahoma Alpha is known for its tradition of excellence. Now, along with our exceptional brotherhood, we will be known for the best chapter house Oklahoma State University has to offer. Miller-Tippens has made exceptional progress to complete our 23,000 square foot home by June 15, and our undergraduate brothers are eager to move in. To keep up with the construction progress, be sure to check out www.cudacam. com using our username ( and password (Stillwater2017!). Despite not having a chapter house to compete with, the undergraduate brothers brought home a myriad of awards, including third place at Var- sity Revue and an Excelsior award for outstanding recruitment practices at Carlson Leadership Academy. Oklahoma Alpha even had the unique op- portunity to host the 2018 Carlson Leadership Academy, which provides interactive officer training and recognizes chapters for their accomplish- ments. For more information on our brothers' successes turn to pages 4-5. These accomplishments would not be possible without the support of our alumni. Laying the foundation for our strong brotherhood today is para- mount to ensure our future. To date, 161 generous Oklahoma Alpha broth- ers and friends have answered the call and raised more than $1.7 million. Brothers, the time to act is now. If you have yet to send in your dona- tion, please don't delay! Remember, gifts can be made online through our website— Alternatively, use the pledge card enclosed to make your five-year pledge or additional one-time gift. Do- nors contributing $2,500 or more will be featured on a plaque prominently displayed in the chapter house. Donors contributing $10,000 or more are eligible for tax deductibility. The average alumni participation rate among Greek chapter campaigns is 25%. Our chapter has only reached 12% participation. With more than 1,300 active alumni, we are more than capable of attaining this goal. We have much to be thankful for, especially our membership in SigEp. Contributing to the Pride in Our Past, Ensuring Our Future campaign is the first step in reconnecting with your Oklahoma Alpha roots. Others be- fore us have made loyal commitments of their time and resources. Now we have the opportunity to do the same by joining our 161 brothers and friends in support of Oklahoma Alpha's future.

Join Oklahoma Alpha for a Time-Honored Golf Classic Y ou are invited to the 2018 T. Bone McDonald Annual Golf Clas- sic to be held in Tulsa, Okla., on May 19. This year's tournament is shaping up to be our biggest ever as we continue to grow one of our biggest annual traditions. The only thing we are missing is your involvement! One of the biggest opportunities we have for involvement is sponsor- ship to promote your business, pledge class, graduating year, or the memory of a brother gone too soon. Nick O'Hara '15, of Maguire- O'Hara Construction and 2017 chairman sponsor, put it best. "Grow- ing my business is one of the most important things I can do. Being able to do that, supporting the scholastic efforts of our current under- graduates, and having a great time with my alumni brothers means more to me than what I get out of it." Every year, the proceeds from this tournament go to a scholarship fund in T. Bone's name set up to award a handful of selected undergraduate SigEps.
