Secondly, when I posted about our NIBs back in December, I was told that some alumni haven't been contacted by gamma chapter yet. We know that we've been very bad about this in the past, but this year we are trying to re-establish alumni ties. I spoke with the people trying to rectify this and they told me that some people may not have been contacted by gamma yet due to the fact that their contact information was never updated, among other things.
Long story short, if you haven't been contacted by gamma yet and would like to start getting newsletters and such (in some of your cases, start getting newsletters again), if you e-mail your addresses to me, I can pass them along and get you on the alumni mailing list. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don't trust giving your address to me (which I can understand, living in the world we do), I think that if you e-mail email@example.com directly with a short description saying how you would like to get alumni mailings, it will be passed on to the right people.
Also, since it seems like I may be the only active brother left in the community (or am I?), I will be trying to make a lot more posts from now on, updating you guys with the goings on in gamma chapter (complete with pictures since I'm one of the resident picture whores)! Hopefully I'll get a chance to post again later tonight after I set up my new external hard drive (seems I need it desperately considering how often my computer likes to rebel against me) with a summary of this past semester, from the brotherhood retreat to semi-formal!
In addition (I just kinda got this idea), I was thinking that it might be cool if I could put up at some point the updated family trees for gamma so those of you who graduated a while ago can see how your family tree is doing and feel more connected to some of the names and faces that I'll be mentioning in my posts. I'll probably have to wait till I get back to campus to see about that though, but it seemed like a neat idea. What do you guys think?
