The school year has gotten off to a quick start for the Alpha Chapter, with most brothers back in Oxford taking classes remotely. But, a few items from the Spring and Summer need to be shared (and can be found on the Chapter Facebook and LinkedIn sites as well):
1. The Chapter finished the Spring Semester with a cumulative GPA of 3.73, the highest among all fraternities at Miami. This was also greater than the University's undergraduate student average (3.59).
—77% of the Chapter attained a GPA of 3.5 or greater; and 23% finished with a 4.0. These are impressive numbers, especially considering the impact of COVID-19 and transition to remote learning in colleges around the nation.
Although this achievement was the work of each and every brother, special thanks are due to Daniel McGeever '21 (Fall) and Noah Ragan '23 (Spring) , the two scholarship chairs who served parts of the past year. Noah will continue his role this fall.
2. The Chapter received a third consecutive Peterson Significant Chapter Award at the Krach Transformational Leaders Workshop in August. The awards recognize "excellence in all operations, including academics, philanthropy, recruitment, and Ritual performance."
The Chapter has a lot to be proud of, and would like to thank all brothers, friends, and family for their support.
The scholarship statistics were compiled by Noah Ragan and Jake Pankoff '23. Jake will be assuming the role of Tribune for the '20-'21 school year.
I've loved serving as Tribune and would like to thank readers for their feedback and support. Thank you and In Hoc!
