For more than a decade, I’ve watched our chapter grow and flourish. An influx of computer science jobs and related fields has led an unprecedented number of Gamma Tau Psi U’s to remain in the Atlanta area. Similarly business-friendly expansion has brought Psi U Brothers from other chapters to the Atlanta area following job opportunities. I know personally I have worked for or with fraternity Brothers at 4 different companies, and helped more than a dozen obtain various positions. My experience is far from unique; many of our Alumni work with other Psi U’s, or look first to fraternity Brothers when hiring, choosing roommates, and choosing business partners. Our shared college experience has become a basis for shared living and working experiences.
As all of you who passed through the Psi U house at Georgia Tech know, the same building that was a blessing in that it got us onto campus and into an actual fraternity house is sorely in need of comprehensive repair. As some of you may remember, November of 2010 will represent the 40th Anniversary of our chapter.
It seems an appropriate goal that prior to that date, we try and recommit ourselves to the ideals of Psi Upsilon, and to make the most of the station in life we, the alumni, now occupy. To that end I propose all Brothers of the Gamma Tau and Atlanta area Psi U’s join me in making the following commitment.
- I will attend Alumni Weekend, April 13 and 14th. Particularly the State of the House address and chili cookoff at the chapter house at 4pm, Sat.
- I will donate either during or before that event via check or using the donation page.
