August 28th Update


As the sun sets on 15X, the '17s brothers of Tri-Kappa could not have asked for a better end to a fantastic summer. Some of the highlights from the past couple of weeks:

Last weekend, for the traditional summer brotherhood trip (and to celebrate our back to back Masters championship), a group of brothers traveled down to Narragansett, RI to Chris Loughlin '17's beach house. The weekend was highlighted by card games of all varieties, football and frisbee on the beach, an impressive number of games of "Cornhole," and a fireworks show at Point Judith CC. It was a special way to end the term, and all involved would like to sincerely thank Chris and his family for their generosity.

At the same time, brothers at home were fortunate to participate in Brother Joe Peña '10's wedding. All who attended the rehearsal dinner on Friday night noted what a treat it was to meet the alumni who generously welcomed the undergraduates into their celebration. We would all like to wish a hearty congratulations to Joe on this great occasion. 1 Webster will always be a home to you Joe!

Today, the brothers were fortunate to share an EBA's pizza lunch with the construction workers from DOMUS Inc. who are currently working on our long awaited renovations at 1 Webster. It was great to meet some of the workers, get an update on the progress, and witness firsthand the incredible progress that has been made this summer. The brothers would especially like to thank Bruce Williamson and foreman Mike Higgins for their accommodation of our endless curiosity about the house this summer. We hope to do another event like this again in the fall.

As Summer VP, it has been my privilege to share the activities of the brotherhood during 15X. I think I speak for the whole '17s class when I say this summer has been a fabulous bonding experience for all of us, and we are tighter than ever despite the lack of our Hallowed Halls. Our summer motto, "No House, No Problem", was definitely realized. 

Looking forward, we could not be more excited to welcome the '16s back to campus, and to welcome the next generation of brothers to Tri-Kappa in the fall. 

As always, if you are ever in the Hanover area, please reach out.
