This blog is all about Clemson University's Beta Kappa chapter of Phi Sigma Pi Honor Fraternity. Phi Sigma Pi is a national gender inclusive fraternity. This Tumblr was created in September 2011 by Historian Kat Clark, and it is now maintained by Historian Elisabeth Noil.
After a beautiful day and shutout win over NC State, the Brothers of Beta Kappa got to work cleaning our precious Death Valley! Brothers stayed 2.5 hours after the game ended and cleaned an entire side of the stadium (~40,000 seats). We found some *interesting* objects (Legos, anyone?) but most of all we gave back to our community, raised some chapter funds, and had a chance to hang out with Brothers!
For this semester’s Big/Little Reveal, each Brother was given a ball of yarn to weave around the room. At the starting point, they posted a sticky note with the name of their Little and then stood at the other end, waiting for their Little to follow the path to them. After much untangling, unwinding and unweaving, eventually each Little made their way across the room to meet their Big!!
Beta Kappa is hosting our first ICR event in years — so exciting! We want everyone near us to come, but we also welcome those from further away. The Brothers of Beta Kappa will be housing guests (but space is limited, so first come, first served).
The Vault is hella cool. It used to be a banking center 50+ years ago but when it shut down it was renovated into a venue space. The owners literally blew a hole in the wall, so now the entrance to the venue is through the vault door— as in, the party is held where the money used to be kept!
The registration packet should be sent out this week to chapters in the Mid-South and Mid-Atlantic region, but if you’re from a chapter outside of those and want to receive a copy of the registration packet for your chapter email Beta Kappa’s ICR chair, Kat Clark, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday September 11, 2012 - Pre-Rush Casino Night Event
The Brothers of the Beta Kappa Chapter held a Casino Night for the potential new members (with, alas, no real prizes). Brothers could choose to either wear their neon rush shirts or wear fancy casino attire. Everyone looked fantastic!
Great job to everyone that put together this event! And thanks Wesley for taking the photos!
