Brothers,

Come join the undergraduates of  Lambda Chi Alpha Whitewater as they honor their High Pi Nick “Pokes” Weisensel with his very own golf outing.

“In recognition of the hard work, sacrifice and dedication of High Pi Nick “Pokes” Weisensel, the men of the Lambda Chi Alpha-Whitewater are proud to sponsor the 2nd Annual Pokesapalooza Golf Outing”

Last year’s event was so successful; we’re hoping to outdo ourselves this year. In order to do that, we need your participation.

This event is open to all brothers of Delta Kappa, Chi Delta Rho and Lambda Chi Alpha who attended Whitewater between the years 1929 and Present.

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for the newest initiated brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha Lambda Iota Zeta.  Fall 2010 grades are in and the men posted an impressive 3.15 cumulative GPA.  Way to go men.  The 932 brothers before you are impressed by your hard work and dedication.  Keep up the good work men. You make us proud.  A special thanks goes out also to Nick “Pokes” Weisensel on his dedication and hard work with these men.  Ever since their return, Nick has driven home the importance of grades and education.  Nick deserves just as much recognition as the undergrads. Way to go guys.

Fraternal Rituals

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Burning LampLambda Chi Alpha publishes an “open” document that discusses many symbols that are represented in all fraternal ceremonies, it is called Ritual: What and Why. Many of you may have read this during your Associate Membership, as it is readily available to all members of the Fraternity. The publication also discusses some of the origins of the Lambda Chi Alpha Associate Member Ceremony, which has origins in the Theta Kappa Nu Initiation Ceremony.

Thanks to Brother Jason Pearce and The Cross & Crescent Articles on Theta Kappa Nu’s Ritual (Part 1 and Part 2) for providing the link to this open publication.

I hope you enjoy reading Ritual: What and Why, and learning about all Fraternal symbolism as much as I do.

Vir Quisque VirI like to dig around on the internet…you know Research and Development for work.

Recently, I found this original Theta Kappa Nu book. I took the images someone stored on a website and put them into a PDF. Not all pages were scanned, so I only have a partial of the book’s contents. Click on the book cover on the left to take a look.
