Move-In Continues


The beginning of this term marks a momentous occasion for the brothers of Tri-Kappa: move-in to the new Kappa lodge at 1 Webster. I'm sure I speak for the entire brotherhood when I say we cannot begin to describe our excitement at both the improvements made to the house and the prospect of making this new space our home. A special shout out to the members of move-in crew, especially Sam Libby '17, Keaton Renta '16, Ronak Kanwar '17, Vince Puzak '17, and Ted Poatsy '17, who worked tirelessly to prepare the new house for its new inhabitants. Also infinite thanks to brother Bruce Williamson whose team has made a huge effort to make the house available to the brothers this spring term. While much remains to be done, progress has continued at a rapid pace, and the brothers look forward to welcoming any and all alums to see the new lodge.

In the midst of move-in, the brotherhood has also been privileged to welcome a new member to the fraternity. Meet Maia Hobart, a black lab pup currently under the tutelage and care of brothers Josh Lange '17 and Josh Schoenbart '16. As Zeus Hobart exits this spring with brother Brett Szalapski '15, the brotherhood looks forward to creating many new memories with this new member of the family.

And despite working hard during the day to move into the new Kappa lodge, brothers have still found time to excel around campus. Josh Tupler '16  has recently received the prestigious Fullbright scholarship, and for that the brotherhood congratulates him immensely. Charles Cai '17 came in 2nd in the Cornell Spring Opener golf tournament last weekend playing for the men's golf team. And a large group of brothers represented Tri-Kap at the spring Dance-A-Thon, a 12 hour dance party hosted to support a variety of Upper Valley charities.

We are look forward to keeping all of the alums updated on the status of move-in, and are very excited to welcome brothers to the new lodge this spring.
