Gents, this letter is from the active chapter Histor, with exciting news about how your support has boosted chapter preparation & morale, and resulted in what looks to be a monumental Fall rush.
Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all Thursday.
It is my pleasure to update you the current progress the chapter is making during this rush season. As you may or may not know, IFC has changed the bidding process of fraternities and we are now allowed to bid new members through the entire rush period. I am very proud to say that Mu Omega has been taking full advantage of this opportunity and we have just recently given out 32 bids with plans to hand out at least another 10-15 by the end of rush to deserving new members. We have a very good chance of having a Fall pledge class above the 30 man mark.
On Sunday, September 8th, the chapter contacted every potential and asked them to meet in President’s Park at exactly 11:37pm. While all the freshman were standing in the park alone, at that exact minute, we had the ENTIRE CHAPTER including some alumni, walk over to the park in all formal wear. There, we personally handed out official bids to each potential. As they recived their bids one by one, many students stopped to watch and even came out of their dorms to witness what was happening. In my opinion, it was one of the most spetacular moments of brotherhood and chapter unity I have ever seen from Mu Omega in my three years as an active. Hopefully this will get you excited for what we have planned for this fall semester.
Having a pledge class of over 30 men is just the tip of the iceberg as far as goals we will reach this school year. New members are allowed to accept their bids on Wednesday, September 18th, so I hope to see you all at the Alumni Annual Business meeting on Thursday September 19th (7pm at Brion’s) so that I can share with you the final results of all our hard work in person. Thank you for your ongoing support, and I look forward to future collaborations between alumni and the active chapter. The amount of help and support we have received already has the entire chapter thanking you all greatly.
YITB, Christian Price
