Epsilon Gamma will host their International Work Day on 4/17/2016 where the active members will complete certain tasks to improve the house. We would like to invite our alumni members to lend us your time, or your resources to aid us on completing these tasks. We will also be cooking food for all who attend.
Please consider donating your efforts, so these men and future lifeblood may finish the our work of reviving this prolific chapter. Get involved.
Trophy Time! …but we need some help.
Another first, since refounding, is quickly approaching Epsilon Gamma Chapter: Winning a Raymond L. Orians Excellence Award.
The fruits of numerous brother’s labor, undergraduate & alumni alike, are coming to fruition. We’re currently in the process of submitting our Year-End Summary (due May 1st) and will qualify for an Excellence Award!
However, many chapters qualify and do not receive the annual award. In hopes of setting ourselves apart by going above and beyond the award guidelines we have a favor to ask of our alumni & friends.
Please write a letter recommending recognition for Epsilon Gamma Chapter and submit that to this email address. You’re help will not go unrecognized!

Brother Joins Peace Corps
My experiences abroad were invaluable; they provided me the opportunity to interact and connect with other people from cultures very different from mine. Since I already had an affinity for civil service, I thought the Peace Corps’ ideals lined up perfectly with mine, so the decision to apply was a no-brainer. Full story.
