During this spring semester, Chi Chapter initiated two pledge classes: Gamma Alpha Class was initiated in March with five members (Vincenzo Freschi, Ryan Grelle, Angelo Marino, William McVay, Peter Rinehart) and Gamma Beta class was initiated yesterday with 13 members (John Paul Adamonis, Joshua Aubel, Peter Ehrhart, Mitchell Gentry, Jorryn Goudy, Brooks Houck, Steven Madias, Reid Moncada, Blake Rohrbacher, James Shilling, Tyler Sost, Ryan Tiberia, Eric Zank).
From 1928 until now, the two best semesters that Chi had until now were spring of 1936, and fall of 1949 – in each of those semester 12 new members were inducted. This semester Chi blasted through that record, with some 18 new members this semester, and a total of 19 for the year. This makes this best semester, and the best year, of initiations in the history of Chi Chapter. While we are referencing the record book: Gamma Beta Class’s 13 members make up the largest initiated pledge class in the Chapter’s history. The Chapter has grown five-fold since the fall.
