As the fall semester draws to a close and finals week approaches, the brothers of Gamma-Phi are proud to welcome 26 new initiates. The Lambda pledge class was initiated on November 15th after a strong 60 days of pledging. The chapter now has a few more than 130 active brothers up on the hill at 200 Belmar, making us the largest fraternity at West Virginia University.
In addition to newly initiated brothers, the chapter recently held elections for the new executive committee. Congratulations to the following brothers:
Zack Fecsko, Grand Master
Sam Smith, Grand Procurator
Robbie Mulderrig, Grand Master of Ceremonies
Jorrell Bland, Grand Treasurer
Seth Capone, Grand Scribe
Many thanks to brothers Brandon Mong, Matt Barnard, Corey Hall, Gabe Martinez, Kevin Quinn and Charles Fowler who spent the last year as executives working hard to make sure the chapter continued to thrive and prosper.
Looking forward to an even more prosperous and rewarding 2014 and wishing brothers everywhere a happy holiday season.

The chapter recently initiated 20 fine young men, the Kappa pledge class. These gentlemen did a great job contributing to the overall prosperity of the fraternity throughout their pledge process while thoroughly learning the teachings of the Bononia Docet and developing close relationships with not only the actives of Gamma-Phi, but more importantly each other. Congratulations boys, AEKΔB!

For the Kappa Sigma Day of Service, the brothers and pledges held a car wash in the house parking lot and took donations for Military Heroes. The warm weather and sunshine provided a great opportunity for brothers and pledges to work together outdoors.
Alumni weekend 2012 was a great success! Brothers from as far back as the 1960′s came to the new house, to see how the chapter was looking for the future, and to catch up with old friends. The event featured speeches by university president James Clements, Grand Master Matt LaNeve, Grand Procurator Paul Guerra, and distinguished Gamma-Phi alumnus Ray Lane. The weekend also featured tours of the new house, which alumni remarked about the wonderful views of Morgantown. The weekend was the first major event at the new house, and the brothers cannot wait for future events in the months and years ahead!

This past Tuesday Brothers willingly cut out the brush and weeds that have since grown from the last Epsilon class cleanup. Chainsaws, weed whackers and the enthusiastic chatter of the Brothers brought all other surrounding fraternity’s out of their houses to watch in awe as we devoured the ingrained shrubbery. Two hours of hard work and the land in front of our Kappa Sigma house was stripped to the dirt. Multiple Brothers hope to sod and plant grass in the near future. Even more escalating their dreams to a beautiful deck overlooking Morgantown!
The brothers helped volunteer for the Party in Pink Zumba event which helped raise money for the Susan G. Koman Foundation. The event featured zumba instructors helping teach the brothers and women in attendance about the dancing, but also featured raffles, and a silent auction. The event raised over 3,000 dollars with the chapter donating over six hundred dollars.
The brothers recently made dinner for the residents of the Ronald McDonald house. The Ronald McDonald house is located in Morgantown, West Virginia and houses families of critically ill children. The brothers will be volunteering at the Ronald McDonald house again later this week and throughout the semester.
On April 14th the brothers of Kappa Sigma volunteered at the Bradley Center. The chapter helped with the spring cleaning of the facility. The weekend service trip was set up by Gamma-Phi alumni Eugene Zappo who works at the Bradley Center.

Construction is well underway on our House at 200 Belmar! Come this August, it will be home to twenty-two undergraduate brothers. Along with renovation of the current structure, construction will add a two story ball room to the back of the house that will be looking over downtown Morgantown.
