Congrats Grads!

We say a tearful goodbye to the members of the pledge class of 2006 - there is no way to express how much the chapter will miss you, so it is better to leave you with some of the images from the last week. Congrats - come visit - and it will always be ITB!

Finals Treats

THANK YOU to the Kansas City and St. Louis alumni chapters for support during finals week. The St. Louis alumni organized study treat bags and the Kansas City alumni delivered boxes of study snacks. Without your treats we would be running out of steam during this stressful week!

Homecoming 2010

Tonight marks the beginning of the Homecoming 2010 excitement! DG Liaisons: Gracey Roope (08) and Heather White (08) attended the first of many weekly meetings to draw from the list of "board game" themes. We drew second in order and got our first pick C A N D Y L A N D!

We are also very excited to work with the gentlemen of Delta Upsilon. Further information about Homecoming 2010 will become available at - check it out!

Toga! Toga! Toga!
