Chapter History

Founding and Early Years

Epsilon Nu was founded on April 15th, 2008.The Chapter was founded by 24 members with the help of David Rosengrant (Chapter Advisor), and Tabatha Haney at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia. After a successful colonization, with the help of Beta Zeta and Epsilon Theta, the Epsilon Nu Chapter was up and running. They welcomed the Alpha class at the end of the Fall 2008 semester, and Beta in the Spring 2009 semester. Today they are working to build not only the Chapter, but also to establish themselves in the Kennesaw community. In 2011 Epsilon Nu had the honor to hold the first the first Mid South Region Conference under the realignment. At the 2011 National Convention that was held in Arlington, Virginia Epsilon Nu won the Outstanding Regional Event Award for having held the best conference out of the 19 regional conferences. We also won the Clarence O. Williams Most Improved New Chapter Award.

The Active Chapter

Today, the chapter operates under the guidance of the Executive Board as well as the ten committees that plan events that help foster the growth and development of the chapter either through gaining members or embracing tripod ideals. Currently Epsilon Nu Chapter has close to 200 members, including over 60 alumni.

Friday night started with the arrival of the FSU and Ga Tech brothers and dinner at The Varsity. This was quickly followed by the Corn Maize in Hickory Flat, Georgia. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it started raining cats and dogs while many of the brothers were still in the maze! This only added a bit of adrenaline into our systems,and pushed us to find our way out faster. Due to rain, kickball plans for Saturday were changed to pool playing. Who knew PSP Brothers could be such table sharks?! Luckily we were able to get some playing time in with kickball before the nights festivities kicked off. After a farewell breakfast on Sunday, the visiting brothers headed home, leaving us with the fulfillment of an entertaining weekend. Great job Jessica, you did a wonderful job planning the weekend!!
