House Improvements

It has been a productive term so far regarding improvements to the physical plant!

A few weeks ago, Carter Noordsij ’18 and Erik Loscalzo ’18 hooked up the old barn lights in the front room. The lights not only look great, but also integrate a piece of house history into a central area that brothers and guests alike can enjoy.

Following that, a group of brothers led by 16X House Man Alex Beals ’18 hooked up and wired the projector that was sitting in the front room, and bought a projector screen to accompany it. The display cables are all wired into the Ryerson, which allows brothers to play video on the projector and use the sound system in the front room for audio. Monday movie nights have quickly become a staple of brotherhood programming, and it will no doubt come in handy once football season arrives in the fall.

Dartmouth’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest academic honor society, inducted 22 new members, including brothers Robert Klingenberger ’16 and Christopher Leech ’16.

To be eligible for election to Dartmouth’s chapter students must have completed eight terms within three years of matriculation and hold one of the top 20 cumulative grade point averages in their class.

Congratulations to both of them!

Sausage Fest

On Sunday, February 15th, Alpha Chi hosted its 3rd annual Sausage Fest. We bought a root beer keg, grilled 150 sausages, and invited over Dartmouth’s all-male a cappella groups to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The Aires, the Cords, and the Brovertones put on a great show for a packed front room. Thanks to everybody’s willingness to donate, we ended up raising about $500 from both cosponsorships and DASH donations.

The Bar is Built

The brotherhood added a new bar to the basement this term! This was a project that the 14s had begun to think about over their sophomore summer but never fully tackled. The idea was first brainstormed by Patton Lowenstein ’14 over Summer 2012 and then revitalized by Andrew Roberts ’14 this year. John Conley ’15, our new houseman as of this term, spearheaded the project.

Materials were purchased over the second weekend of the term with construction starting the following Thursday. Continue reading The Bar is Built

A Great Pigstick

This past weekend, the Brothers hosted the 26th annual Pigstick. This event is easily the highlight of most brothers’ spring terms, and for many, the whole year! Ray Crosby and his family served up great barbecue and Hypercane played a great set. Food was demolished and so was beer. A slight rain delay in the middle did not hamper the party at all. The loss of the backyard for the construction of KD led to a more intimate feel and the yard was packed. A great day was had by all.

Welcome to the New Website!

Hi, my name is Andrew and I’ve spent the past three months envisioning and building this new version of the Alpha Chi website. Our old page was quite outdated and was only able to modified by those with a computer science and web-design background. This new site is built on top of WordPress so it has much more functionality and will be much easier for future executive boards to update. We’ve got a ton of new information and photographs on here, so take a second to browse all the menu items! Continue reading Welcome to the New Website!
