Bathroom Improvements

Summer term 11X has begun and the Tri-Kap ‘13s have hit the ground running. House managers Deep Shah and Dan Krawec are pleased to announce the completion of Spring Term’s bathroom renovations of our sinks and countertops. We’ve added new double-door oak cabinets, a white laminate countertop, white sink basins, silver Grohe faucets, and a white shelf.

Not only is this improvement a long-awaited enhancement for brothers, but also a godsend for the many female friends who frequent our hallowed halls. In fact, one visitor reported, "surprisingly, Tri-Kap has one of the cleanest bathrooms of any frat! Have you seen AD's?!"

We’d like to express our gratitude toward Dave from Dave’s Carpentry who organized and completed all of the woodwork for the project, and ARC Mechanical for the plumbing work.

As you may notice, we’ve also tried modernizing our bathroom with a new automatic paper towel dispenser and foam soap dispensers. Take a look at some pictures below:

Bequeathals

The end of the Spring is always a bittersweet time for Tri-Kap. Although it marks the conclusion of yet another successful term at Dartmouth, it also means we must bid farewell to our graduating seniors. To commemorate this event, we had our annual spring bequeathal ceremony for the 11s this past week.

The brothers all gathered around as the 2011 seniors bequeathed some of their most valued positions to the younger classes. Each bequeathal had both a special memory attached to it it along with a reason for giving it to the younger brother. The bequeathed items ranged anywhere from an old house shirt to a special house position that brother had acquired. Bequeathals are undoubtedly one of the most important things we do as a house.

Our halls were filled with both laughs and tears as the seniors reminisced about their time as a Tri-Kap brother. The 11s further gave words of wisdom to the younger classes about how to truly appreciate and get the most out of the house. Although they now move beyond our hallowed halls in order to leave their mark on the world, their legacy has forever been established among us. So congratulations to the 2011 Tri-Kap graduating class! We will miss you dearly.

Yours in Kappa,

Green Key 2011

Green Key this past year was a weekend to remember. As we started off the week with Sunday Harbor to celebrate, we knew that 1 Webster Ave. would revisit many traditions, as well as make new ones for years to come. On Wednesday we were happy to have many alums visit us for one of the best Meetings this term. We rekindled old friendships, and many of us from the younger classes had the opportunity to meet the older graduates from the '08s and '09s.

The Friday Dance Party as usual was a huge hit. The 'Klub Kappa Kabana' party proved to truly be the "hottest place north of Havana" as we established ourselves as the best scene on campus. DJs Kenny Wang '12 and Michael Barile '13 held it down with some awesome beats and it turned out to be a great night.

The following morning we held corporations in the GOTE Room. Led by Alumni Board President James McKim '83, we discussed our yearly financials, and perhaps most importantly the impending renovations. With input from the rest of the board, including Michael Brasher '10, Matt Brown '05, and Terry Lowd '66 the meeting proved to be very productive. In addition, 23 '13s and 2 12's were officially initiated into the Kappa Kappa Kappa Society as brothers. As one of them, I guarantee that we will do everything in our power to positively contribute and be the best brothers we can be.

All in all Green Key was a great time and I hope that we showed our beloved alumni a fantastic time among our hallowed halls.

Yours in Kappa,
