Montana Beta Is Thriving as a Chapter
More Alumni Support Needed for Continued Success
I am pleased to say I’m impressed with how well Montana Beta is doing. The undergraduates are taking good care of the chapter house. It’s been 10 years since the major renovation took place, so normal wear and tear is to be expected. We will continue to keep on top of that. We still need to replace the siding when we can afford to do so.
Our chef, Bill Buseman, also acts as our house director. His rapport with the young men is a valuable asset to the general atmosphere of the chapter, and the young men obviously like and respect him and his cooking.
The chapter had close to a 3.0 GPA in the spring semester, ranking second among the fraternities at the University of Montana and above the university GPA. The goal for the fall semester is to exceed a 3.0 GPA and be the top-ranked fraternity. I think they can do it with the leadership of Eminent Archon Mick van den Bos ’20.
We still need more alumni participation in the fraternity. Our local alumni work very hard, but they could use the help of younger alumni. Who will step up and get involved? I guarantee that it is a rewarding experience. Our chapter needs you.
I would also like to thank all of those brothers who have so generously supported our fundraising efforts. Without your donations, Montana Beta wouldn’t exist.
In the Bonds,
