On September 25, 2012, the newly recolonized and thriving group of Alpha Zeta Betas inducted our third pledge class after a strong recruitment season, which culminated in the selection of eighteen excellent gentlemen whom we believe have the potential to become true Men of Principle. The third pledge class consists of the following New Members:
Kraig McGee III
All eighteen of these men have now begun their journey to become initiated brothers of Beta Theta Pi.
These men were selected from a larger group of highly qualified men through the formal recruitment process in September. As the cream of the crop, the pledges have demonstrated their capacity for eloquence and thoughtfulness, and have clearly proven that their values align with those of our Great and Good Fraternity by engaging in deep, meaningful conversation with actives prior to being deemed fit to receive bids.
These new inductees have many accomplishments thus far in their young lives – and we are certain they are but the first of many accolades to come. Our new pledges have the following achievements under their belts: Pioneer Leadership Program, University Honors Program, high school valedictorians, National Honors Society members, All-State athletes, AP Students, IB Students, men involved in their religious organizations, countless volunteer hours, and much more.
The formal pledge education program commences this Sunday, September 30, 2012. During this process we expect our pledges to grow immensely through meaningful values-based interaction as well as education in the history and lore of the Fraternity. Current VP of Education Wyeth Seidel will be managing the Pledge Education process, and any alumni who would like to see certain traditions from the old chapter revived are encouraged to contact him.
The Beta Spirit is in full swing around the house right now, and the future of Alpha Zeta looks as bright as the three stars of Beta Theta Pi.
