Hopefully this report finds our brothers, alumni, friends, and family well. Here in Bozeman, Alpha Delta is experiencing our second semester in our beautiful, newly renovated home, and we are taking advantage of every opportunity to show it off. On top of last semester’s lovely, and well attended alumni reception, we have broken in the new home with a couple visits from the Dean of the College of Agriculture, Dr. Charles Boyer. Our proudest moment in displaying our new house, however, would definitely be our dinner with the President of MSU, Dr. Waded Cruzado. Beautifully decorated and deliciously catered, the dinner was a major success.
Along with keeping that new house in top shape, our 62 actives and 32 live-ins have been working hard in all aspects of their college careers. Campus involvement has been a massive part of our brother’s experience with our men taking trips with clubs to places like Denver and Pittsburgh to promote Agriculture around the nation.
Our new officer team has been doing a great job in taking on and accomplishing great tasks. From attending officer training events in Reno, to taking online training seriously, they are a quality group of doers.
Our greatest challenge this semester has been deciding who to nominate for Greek Life awards. With so many great men in this chapter, we had long list of members to decipher from. In the end, we declared Ben Roeder and John Walker to be our nominees for new member and member of the year. We are also hopeful that our nominee for undergraduate director, Brant Marsh, gets elected to take part in one of 4 available positions in Alpha Gamma Rho to sit in on board meetings and vote on issues at a national level.
Alpha Delta has accomplished quite a bit over the past year. We plan to continue with our extremely successful philanthropy, professionalism, sociality, and involvement. We are proud of our accomplishments while remaining focused on our goals. We will continually strive to focus on and improve ourselves, our brothers, our studies and most of all our fraternity.
