Farewell Fall Quarter 2016!
The stress is over- finals have ended and brothers are finally enjoying winter break! That means traveling, sleeping in, baking, shopping, visiting family, working extra hours and enjoying the start of ski season. The weeks leading up to winter break were busy ones for the Omega Beta chapter. As the fall pledge process ended, we had the honor and privilege of celebrating our twenty-one amazing new members. Court of Honor was held on November 19th, where these hard working and dedicated individuals demonstrated their readiness to become members of Alpha Kappa Psi. It was a long day and we thank the traveling brothers from Beta Lambda (WSU) and alumni who chose to come spend it with us. We are excited to watch all of our new brothers grow into developed leaders and close friends.
After the Thanksgiving break, newly initiated brothers took part in their first chapter where they helped us celebrate and say farewell to our graduating seniors during Senior Ceremony. We commemorated four outstanding seniors with photos from their time in AKPsi along with shared memories and stories that had most of us brothers in stitches and a few in tears. It is always bitter sweet saying goodbye to our graduating seniors. We are extremely thankful for the times we have shared with these brothers and cannot wait to see the great things that they will do in their future career endeavors. We look forward to seeing them again as alumni.
To celebrate the last chapter of the quarter, following Senior Ceremony, brothers exchanged holiday gifts with one another during our annual Secret Santa Gift Exchange. Brothers dressed up in Christmas sweaters and holiday cheer for the occasion and brought in an enormous amount of gift bags and presents. Once again, brothers were all able to share a good laugh with each other as both hilarious and very thoughtful gifts were unwrapped and shared. What a fun and cheerful way to end the quarter!
We hope everyone enjoys a very well-deserved, relaxing winter break! See you all in 2017!
