This past fall semester was great one for our chapter. Along with initiating fifteen pledges as brothers this past week, the brotherhood has had a semester filled with interesting events to develop our professionalism as well as great events in which the brothers could bond together.
September and October included events such as the widely popular trip out to Shelburne Farms in Acton, MA for a cool autumn afternoon picking apples and enjoying the farm. We also participated in the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” charity walk in Boston and we raised over $1,500 as a team. The brotherhood also began the semester with an incredible rush process from our rush heads and began the pledge process for the new Iota pledge class.
Fall 2015 was also a great semester for professional development, including an incredible round-table discussion on leadership with the Director for The Center for Women and Business, Betsy Myers. The event taught the brothers how to effectively be a leader in today’s business environment, or in any organizational or personal setting. Our external committee also put on events such as a recruiter’s panel to ask questions about what companies are looking for in its candidates, as well as a roundtable discussion about personal finance and the importance of financial planning.
All in all, this past fall was a great semester for the brotherhood, both through our organized events and general brotherhood bonding. As we prepare for finals, we can look back and see all the great things the brotherhood has done!
