Business Meeting & Recolonization Summit

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Below is a letter from Paula Mohan regarding the next business meeting and recolonization efforts:

Hi everyone,
We’d like to hold another business meeting on tuesday, june 5th, at 7;00 pm in Whitewater to discuss the recolonization process, to catch up on the latest news, and to plan for a general meeting in August between alumni, university officials, and representatives from Internationals. We’ll be meeting in 2013 Winther Hall. Winther is located on Prairie Street and parking is free in lot 14- (accessible from both Starin Rd and Prairie Street)- after 6:00 pm. (See map for details: Because there is a lot of construction taking place on campus, Starin Rd will be closed periodically, so be prepared for that possibility if you come in that way).

A letter from our Faculty Advisor

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Hi. For those who didn’t know me while a student, my name is Paula Mohan, I teach in the Political Science department, and I have served as faculty advisor for the fraternity for the last several years.

I thought I would briefly mention some of the initiatives that the alumni have begun during the suspension to build a better relationship with the university and to also discuss some actions that the university is taking that might have an impact on greek relations in the future.

Alumni Interview: Marty Hoke

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

Jeff Reisdorfer(Note from Jeff) Every month we are going to feature a new Alumni Interview on the site. If you would like to recommend one of our Brothers to be interviewed, email me at: and we will get them on the site. This month we feature Marty Hoke (LI-Z 522) who is the President of the UW-W Lambda Chi Alpha Alumni Association.

For Brothers who don’t know who you are, can you give us a brief background about yourself and what you do for a living?

I graduated from Whitewater in 1988 and was actively involved with Lambda Chi from 1984-1988. I am married and have three children-one girl and two boys. I work as the Corporate Treasurer for Uline Shipping Supplies in Waukegan, Ill, where I have worked since 2000.

Marty, you are the President of the Alumni Association. Now that Housing Corps and the Alumni Association are seperate entities, what roles do you see the Alumni Association taking?

The Alumni Association is charged with keeping alumni involved and active as we prepare for Lambda Chi to recolonize in Whitewater (hopefully, Fall 2008). Once Lambda Chi recolonizes, members of the Alumni Association will act as mentors to each elected officer of Lambda Iota-Zeta. The Alumni Association will also be informed of issues that could warrant disciplinary action against the chapter by the University and be given the chance to rectify the situation before disciplinary action is taken by the University.
