The Beta Alpha Mu Family, or BAM, is a family of the Zeta Iota Chapter descended from Nick Conway.

Family History

The Beta Alpha Bu Family, better known as BAM, began Fall 2011 when Charter Nick Conway received his first little, Travis Knapp. Travis received a great internship in North Jersey and was not on campus for the semester. Nick then decided to apply for another little, Grant Mallues. The following semester, Nick fell in love with Mark McShane during recruitment and applied one more time to be a big. Nick received Mark as a little and was happy with his family size and togetherness. Travis came back from a year of absence due to his internship in North Jersey and adventures in Australia and applied to become a big. Nick Pedano then joined BAM as Travis' little. BAM did not gain any new members from the Epsilon Class, but the Zeta Class allowed further expansion. Mark received Luigi Nuñez as his little, and Nick Pedano had Ryan Vance as his. Travis aided in mentoring Ryan Vance because Nick was hospitalized and his ribs were removed. The family continued to grow once more through the Thetas, where Luigi received Nick Swanson and JP Hughes as twins. While Ryan Vance and Nick Swanson gained Thomas Nagle and Justin Russell, respectively, JP Hughes resigned due to academic and extra-curricular commitments. This pushed Luigi to apply for another little and gained, who Luigi connected much with during recruitment, Rob Focht. The BAM Family has held many Executive Board, Executive Council, and Initiate Class positions with a few involvements in National Committees.

Family Traditions

One of the biggest traditions is yelling the word 'BAM' whenever any BAM family member does something great. We also have a sock monkey called 'BAM-BAM'. BAM Family is currently on its 2nd BAM-BAM. BAM also has a paddle made by Travis Knapp that is bestowed to the current patriarch/matriarch of the family. The paddle is a symbol of leadership of the family.
