      Seniors: The Beta Alpha Class of 2011
    • State of Beta Alpha
      • Right now, the chapter is currently on probation with Kenyon and the General Fraternity, as detailed in e-mails sent earlier this semester.
      • We have made great strides in repayment of our debt and finished the semester with no issues relating to violating the terms of our probation status
      • Pending completion of the terms of our probation, we will return to good standing with Kenyon and the General Fraternity by December 31, 2011
      • We currently owe roughly $3,900 to the General Fraternity, having paid off over $6,000 of the original total
      • We are working towards paying off other expenses currently, including property taxes on the Temple and assorted bills associated with the Temple
      • Chapter GPA is currently above the All-Beta average, at 3.1
      • Next year, we hope to bring in 10 to 12 new members, making our fraternitythe largest on Kenyon’s campus.
      • We graduated 5 seniors in the Class of 2011 and are graduating 6 in the Class of 2012
      • Our Division Housing is completely full for the first time in years and we are currently petitioning for 2 more rooms to be added for the 2012-2013 academic year
