History of Epsilon Alpha

Epsilon Alpha Chapter, Founder's Day 2008

Sherry Snell decided to bring a chapter of Phi Sigma Pi to Kutztown University after seeing the impact the Delta Alpha Chapter had on her then boyfriend, now husband, Timothy Lebo. The Epsilon Alpha chapter of Phi Sigma Pi was chartered on November 12, 2002 at Kutztown University by founder Sherry Snell and her charter class. Since that time the chapter has inducted over 100 members into the chapter, and currently hosts 28 active members and over 60 alumni.

Chapter Committees & Events

Scholarship Committee

The Scholarship Committee's duty is to provide activities for Brothers where they can learn something new. These things can range from serious matters to fun and silly activities. Another part of the Scholarship Committee is to present Brother of the Month and End of the Semester Awards. Brother of the Month is a way to honor the outstanding Brothers in the EA Chapter who go the extra mile and give 200%. The End of the Semester Awards recap the many accomplishments of individual Brothers throughout the semester.

Service Committee

Alumni Committee

The Alumni Committee's duty is to keep communication with the Alumni, as well as prepare for a fond farewell for the graduates every semester. The Alumni Committee is also in charge of our Annual Alumni Christmas Party. The Alumni Committe is currently working on getting the Brother's who are graduating gifts that will always remind them of Phi Sigma Pi. We are also working on new ways to keep in contant with the Alumni and to try and get them more involved. One idea we are working on is starting an Alumni Pen-Pal. This way Alumni can still feel connected to the chapter and get to know new Brothers.

Social Committee

The Social Committee is all about strengthening the ties within the Brotherhood. My goal, as Social Committee head, is to provide the Brotherhood with a variety of fun and inexpensive events. Hopefully, these fun events will allieviate some stresses a typical college student may go through. Examples of our events include monthly Birthday Night, dinner socials, bingo, ice cream socials, and picnics at a local park. I also hold holiday themed social such as our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Dinner. I really enjoy being the Social Chair of the Epsilon Alpha Chapter.

Fundraising Committee

Public Relations Committee

The Public Relations Committee's goal is to spread our name across campus and to show our own pride in Phi Sigma Pi. To establish this, we purchase articles of clothing with our Greek letters on them. Occasionally we even host letter making events, where Brothers are able to create clothing items of their choice with customized letters. We also hold informational events such as the hot chocolate table, where interested students may find out more about our fraternity while drinking free hot chocolate.

Web/Internet Public Relations Committee

The Web/Internet PR Committee's task is to maintain and update the website and other online resources. This semester we launched an entirely new website, and have currently been making updates daily. Also, there is a brand new Phi Sigma Pi- Epsilon Alpha Online Forum. It is a great way for Brothers to connect and share thoughts and ideas on all subjects, whether they be Fraternal or not. Finally, we have been updating the Epsilon Alpha wiki.

Rush Committee

Initiate Committee

The initiate committee is currently hard at work organizing and playing out our initiation process for the Nu Class. It is our job to provide the initiates with the tools they need throughout an 8 week program to become the best potential Brothers they can be. Of course along the way, we have to have some fun, so we also plan the initiate retreat and any icebreakers or games played throughout as well. Committee members assist in the initiate meetings and give their input as needed. The initiate committee has the committee head that is also the Initiate Advisor, that acts as a guide and teacher for the initiates. The Initiate Advisor does everything from selecting the big little pairings to helping the initiates meet all their requirements.
