Alumni Chapter News
On May 29, the Alberta alumni hosted their annual Spring Classic Golf Tournament. Then in June, they were excited to collaborate with the undergraduate chapter on the Summer Solstice beach volleyball tournament, with donations going to local charitable organizations. The alumni also continue to meet monthly for alumni lunches around Edmonton.
This spring, the Alberta alumni were pleased to provide two scholarships for undergraduates, with the Edge King Leadership Award going to a newly initiated undergraduate who has shown a commitment to community service and leadership. The Associate Member Scholastic Award was provided to the newly initiated undergraduate with the highest GPA in his first semester.
The Arlington Chapter celebrated its 50th anniversary on Saturday, May 4 at the Thornton Inn, which once served as the chapter's long-time chapter home. More than 75 brothers attended, including several founding members. On Sunday, alumni gathered again to participate in the Ralph Springer Memorial Golf Tournament. This annual event raises funds for educational programming for the undergraduate members of the Arlington Chapter.
On May 5, 2019, Manitoba Chapter brothers Rob Armstrong, ’04, and Michael Hall, ’97, completed the Winnipeg Police Service Half Marathon Relay.
This school year, the Syracuse Alumni Chapter has been busy providing support to the undergraduates and working to keep alumni engaged. The inaugural Alumni Reunion Weekend drew an impressive turnout in September 2018, and in October, the inaugural Coffee With a CEO speaker series featured Doug Present, ’86, who shared his business and life skills wisdom with brothers.
The undergraduate chapter continues to receive support from the three alumni entities: The Dikaia Foundation, the Syracuse DU Housing Corporation and Chapter Advisory Board. The foundation provided six scholarships to brothers this year and is sending its largest delegation to the Leadership Institute this summer. The housing corporation also oversaw significant improvements to the chapter house.
