14X Jock Chair Update

14X Jock Chair Update - Hector Iturbe and Eric Chalif

Coming off a spring IM championship in softball, we were set to do well for the summer season. We advanced to the knockout stages as the first seed from our group. Brothers Charles Cai '16 and Brian White '15 led the way for Tri-Kap. After a very good run, we were knocked out by AD in a close 2-0 loss. 


Coming off a championship run in the fall, Tri-Kap was also set to do well in the IM Soccer league for the summer. Led by the play of club soccer player Hector Iturbe '16 and brothers Keaton Renta '16 and Eric Chalif '16, Tri-Kap was set to advance into the knockout stages with a good seed. However, due to a misunderstanding with a grad school team the friday of Masters we had to forfeit that match. That technicality eventually cost us our bid in the knockout stages. The fall will bring back a couple of other club soccer brothers and Tri-Kap will be set to defend their fall IM soccer title.

14X Philanthropy Chair: Joe Wang


14X Philanthropy Chair: Joe Wang

This summer, the brotherhood of Kappa Kappa Kappa has participated in a variety of philanthropic events. We raised more than $500 for The Prouty, an annual charity effort whose proceeds go directly to funding cancer research. We also participated in the Pelt-a-Delta dodgeball tournament, raising money to go towards the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Furthermore, we have worked closely with the Upper Valley Haven this summer. We helped bake and sell bread to raise money to help fund the services that the Haven provides, such as food, shelter, and educational programs for the children of homeless families. We also collected food and clothing donations for the Haven. All in all, the brotherhood of Kappa Kappa Kappa has made a strong philanthropic effort this summer term.

14x Academic Chair - Brian Chalif '16


14X Academic Chair Update:

The brotherhood continues to exhibit extreme commitment and contribution to the internal academic community at Dartmouth and external international world, whether it is in finance, music, government, or entrepreneurship. I, Brian Chalif '16, just completed the four-week Tuck Bridge program, which gave me an introduction to business, which Dartmouth does not offer. This introduction to business culminated with a team-based DCF, economic, marketing, financial and strategic analysis of Nike. Both Juan Nicholls '15 and Johnny Yoon '13 are participating in the second session. This summer, instead of taking classes, as a presidential scholar I am helping the chair of the music department do research for a book he is writing. 

Josh Tupler '16 flew to Gent, Belgium, to present at the 14th annual Transatlantic Studies Association Conference. He was a panelist with three other officers from across the world presenting about Canadian ballistic missile defense – he was the first undergraduate to ever present at this conference. 
Joshua Schoenbart '16 spent a week at the G20 YEA Summit in Sydney, Australia, as the youngest of eight delegates from the United States. 

These are just a few examples, but every TriKap brother is a crucial part of the academic community at Dartmouth.
