State of the Lodge
I hope the inaugural issue of the Beta Delta Alumni Newsletter was a success. It was my intention to engage the alumni and keep you updated with what is happening at the Lodge. It is my hope that you will continue to use this new tool as a way to stay connected with each other and with what is happening with the undergraduate Brothers. Also, our local website has been updated and can be accessed at .cfm?event=Main&path=Chi_Psi The month of February was very eventful at the Lodge. Pledge education began and a few Brothers attended the Northeast Regional Conference (NERC) at Union College, Alpha Pi. We also had our inaugural scholarship awards cocktail at the lodge in which eight Brothers received awards. February was a great month and we look forward to keeping the steam rolling throughout the month of March. I would like to issue a special thank you to Brothers Mitch Simpler, William Kovacs, Matt Horch, Chris Horch, Jim Eshleman, Bill Maher, Matthew Fitz, Sean Linder, Michael Groome and Brian Henry for participating in trivia night this past Friday (31-13). The current brothers really enjoyed the stories and hope many alumni continue to show their faces.

Undergraduate Spotlight: Paul Schroeder
Brother Paul Schroeder ’15 is becoming one of the most active and dedicated brothers here in Chi Psi. Born in Reading, PA, Brother Schroeder excelled academically and athletically at Governor Mifflin High School. At Lehigh, Brother Schroeder is majoring in Bioengineering and is a member of the varsity football team. In the Lodge he is the alumni relations understudy and the # 1.5. At the inaugural scholarship cocktail ceremony, Brother Schroeder received an award for having the highest GPA (3.88) in the entire lodge. Brother Schroeder aspires to attend medical school upon graduation to study oncology/ neurology. We are very proud of our Brothers and we hope you all continue to support us in everything that we do.
