Spring Semester Recap

 

This week marks the end of another great semester for AEPi Eta Sigma. In January we welcomed 11 new brothers into our fraternity, and soon after we sent executive board members Jordan Cynewski and Matty Bernstein to AEPi’s annual mid-Atlantic conclave at James Madison University. The next two months included a two-day brotherhood retreat in rural Virginia, local AEPi events at AIPAC Policy Conference and at the Bulgarian Embassy, and several successful philanthropic efforts including our first-ever blood drive which collected enough blood to save over 90 lives. Our chapter was also a top-ten team at this year’s Relay for Life, raising over $4,000 for the American Cancer Society, and we were an official cosponsor of GU Take Back the Night Week, which is a series of events aimed at preventing sexual assault by raising awareness and educating our community. We closed the semester with spring elections, Georgetown Day, and a formal, all bringing brothers together to celebrate a great semester. Thanks to our executive board, minor board, AEPi nationals, and all who contributed to our brotherhood over the last few months!

A Message From our Rush Chair

By Adam Shinbrot

The start of the Spring 2016 semester here on the Hilltop marks the beginning of another rush process for Eta Sigma. Rush is a time for the brothers to get to know the rushes and, more importantly, for the rushes to get to know us. Rushing AEPi was one of the greatest decisions of my time at Georgetown and all of us in Eta Sigma are excited to share our experiences with this semester’s rushes. Check out our Facebook page, look at the Rush page on this website, or reach out to me at ars247@georgetown.edu with any questions or for more information! 

Finishing a Full Semester

This week marks the end of a busy semester for AEPi Eta Sigma. In August, former Scribe and current Lieutenant Master Connor Harding represented our chapter at AEPi’s 102nd annual National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Soon after, we inducted 14 new brothers and welcomed two transfers to our brotherhood. In September, we raised hundreds of dollars for the Organization for Autism Research with an “AEPi-in-the-Face” day in Red Square. In October, we celebrated homecoming with returning alumni and raised over a thousand dollars for the American Cancer Society in our annual “Nice Jewish Boys of Georgetown” calendar sale. Several brothers also participated in the annual Marine Corps Marathon 10k in October to raise money for the Organization for Autism Research. In November, we mourned the loss of Rabbi Harold White, hosted an AEPi-led Shabbat service, and won Relay for Life’s fall fundraising challenge by raising $580 from 40 brothers in two weeks. And we closed the semester with a formal, bringing brothers together to celebrate a great semester. Thanks to our executive board, minor board, AEPi nationals, and all who contributed to our brotherhood over the last few months!

Welcome back!

This week brothers are returning to campus from across the country, full of enriching summer experiences.

This summer our brothers traveled to diverse places including Spain, Argentina, South Africa, Israel, Romania, Dubai, Peru, and Italy. Many of those who stayed in the United States worked in summer internships in fields as diverse as finance, politics, technology, marketing, and consulting.

We will begin our rush process in early September and are excited to welcome a new group of brothers soon after! Check back on this blog for updates on our chapter throughout the year.
