Chi Zeta on the Rise
Active Brothers Hold Each Other to High Standards
As the High Alpha of the Chi Zeta Chapter, it is my honor to report that we are making great strides toward bettering our brotherhood and changing the culture of our chapter. In the first three months of my presidency, I have seen nothing but passion and drive from the newly elected High Zeta, and I can confidently say that we are operating at our highest standard in recent years. The current High Zeta understands that they have come into office at a pivotal point in Chi Zeta history, and they recognize the potential that we have as a chapter. We are taking every opportunity to progress our chapter with the utmost confidence and passion.
The brothers recognize how special and unique Chi Zeta is, and actively work to promote a positive image and live up to the expectations of this great chapter. We are returning to our roots of philanthropy and service, recently working on our canned food drive, achieving a total donation of $4,000 and 400 pounds of food to benefit the Eastern Illinois Food Bank and the people of our community. We have also logged more than 400 community service hours this semester alone.
We are making great progress on perfecting our ritual exemplification and emphasizing it as the one powerful thing that bonds all of us brothers together. Lastly, we are taking a more proactive approach to risk management and doing away with the risky behavior that has put our chapter in jeopardy.
We are the positive influence that a brotherhood should be and are constantly pushing each other to grow as individuals. Chi Zeta has a special place in our hearts, as it does in yours. We intend to perform second to none, and I am proud to say that we will not let anything stand in the way of us restoring Chi Zeta to the highly regarded chapter it once was, and deserves to be.
Please make plans now to join us at Homecoming on October 19 and talk with us in person. We want to meet our alumni brothers, hear your stories, and show you our excitement to be Lambda Chis at Illinois.
