Epsilon Nu's 70th Anniversary

Alumni from as far as Singapore attended the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Epsilon Nu chapter on Saturday, April 13. In fact, alumni from every decade since the founding were in attendance.

Undergraduates greeted each guest and prepared the chapter house for tours and reminiscing. John Chamberlain '71 and his son Chris '11, organized the catered buffet.

Another cause for celebration was the success of the fund raising campaign to replace the tile roof and make other improvements on the chapter house which was built in 1928.

Bob Dorigo Jones '85, president of the Hesperian Building Association, the alumni corporation of the Epsilon Nu, presented a large plaque listing all the donors to the campaign which was named for long time chapter advisor, Dave Brogan '56.

Additional plaques were presented to Larry Lenick, '66, Doug Nelson '67, Mike Evanoff, '68, John Chamberlain '71, and Greg Brainer '90 who were instumental to success of the fund raising effort.

The day was capped off with Dave Brogan "christening" the chapter house. The enthusiasm of the day was a great kickoff for the chapter's next 70 years.

Return of the Upsilon Chapter

Upsilon alumni and International Office staff are currently working with an interest group at the University of Rochester to facilitate reactivation of the chapter.

"Restarting suspended and inactive chapters is a priority for Psi Upsilon" says Executive Director, Thomas Fox, Omicron '00 (University of Illinois). "We're always looking for ways to expand and grow Psi Upsilon."

The Upsilon chapter is Psi Upsilon's 12th and was originally founded in 1858. The chapter was suspended for risk management violations in 2010.
