Beta Boasts Biggest Pledge Class and Best GPA

Alpha Eta Chapter is proud to report they had the largest pledge class on campus this spring, recruiting 12 new members from all over the country and the world--as far as Bangalore, India and Hanoi, Vietnam. The chapter also welcomed four additional pledges this fall.

We're even more proud to boast a 3.21 GPA, the highest of all Denison fraternities. We put an added emphasis to ensure academic achievement among brothers by setting up study sessions and tutorships for those who are near the GPA cutoff. Alpha Eta Chapter was presented with an award from the University for having the highest GPA.

Additionally, Paul "Yubo" Young was one of seven Denison students to win a coveted Presidential Medal from Denison this spring. The award is presented to graduating seniors who have excelled in some combination in service to the community, contribution to the arts, enlargement of global perspective, athletic fitness, leadership and contributions to community discourse.

Philanthropically, the chapter raised $1,400 for Big Brothers Big Sisters through their wing-eating contest King of the Wing, an annual event held each spring. In the spring the brothers also had a team in KATs with Bats, a whiffle ball tournament hosted by Kappa Alpha Theta. This fall, the chapter will once again participate in Delta Gamma's annual Anchor Splash competition to benefit the sorority's philanthropy, Service for Sight. Last fall Beta placed second in the competition (find a great video of our dance number from the event posted on our chapter's Facebook page!).
