Chapter Update: February 2011

As the Zeta Chapter at Franklin & Marshall College enters its 157th year, we are proud to carry on the traditions of involvement, excellence, and distinction that have been so firmly entrenched in our brotherhood. Maintaining our chapter house as well as maintaining strong relationships with the College, our neighbors, and fellow Greek organizations are priorities for us. Last April, we initiated fifteen new members, and this year we are in the process of educating eleven new members—all leaders among their peers on campus, in the classroom, and in the traits of personal character and integrity. Five brothers have leading roles in the sketch comedy troupe, The Hucksters—an organization sponsored by PKS Zeta that benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Senior Christ Ryland continues to give an immeasurable contribution to the community as a Lancaster County EMT, and sophomore Joe Strawitz represented the brotherhood in the annual campus-wide talent competition Alpha Male, which raised money this year for relief in Haiti. Academically, five brothers attained Honors List last fall semester, with GPAs of 3.7 or better. In addition, we want to extend our thanks to our supportive, dedicated alumni, and especially to Steve Kielt ’10 who recently designed a phenomenal new website for our chapter.
