Restored chapters - News from around the country

This post is different from our usual fare for two reasons:

  • (Note from Tom Barton) SigEp storms back to Loras College!!!
    SigEp is back at Loras College in Dubuque, IA. After 10 years of dormancy, IA Eta lives again. In just a month, on a campus with only 1600 students and no other fraternities, the IA Eta colony has landed 24 new members with a combined GPA of 3.2. This includes class presidents, campus leaders, and members of nationally ranked sports teams. Brother Tom Barton, Loras '89, is leading the charge from the alumni volunteer side.  Brother Jim Collins, Loras '84, is now the college president and has also been extremely instrumental in the return of IA Eta.  Originally founded in 1974, IA Eta at one point had won 7 straight Buchanan Cups from 1975-1989 under the mentoring of Order of the Golden Heart recipient Bob McCune.  Stay tuned!
