Every year the semester kicks off and our brothers come strolling on to campus with a ton of things to do for the start of the semester. This year our exec board put in a bunch of hard work in the form of an 24 hour over-night "retreat". (pictured above) We were able to start with a strong foundation and a mutual understanding of a large majority of the chapter's programs.
The Mu Pi chapter has been turbulent for many years, we've struggled to find our niche on campus, relate with each other, and find a way to balance work and fun but this year seems different. This will surely be the year when everything will finally find it's place. We all are learning the quirks and silly things about our brothers while even having fun in the process.
The older our chapter members get the more fun we have completing traditions like the M-Climb (pictured below) and the better we get at pouring root beer floats for Celebration of Mines. We also have become pros at setting up and tearing down for every recruitment event. I personally am ecstatic for us to get our new pledge class and to begin the process of making people fall in love with APO like I have.
