It has been a productive term so far regarding improvements to the physical plant!
A few weeks ago, Carter Noordsij ’18 and Erik Loscalzo ’18 hooked up the old barn lights in the front room. The lights not only look great, but also integrate a piece of house history into a central area that brothers and guests alike can enjoy.
Following that, a group of brothers led by 16X House Man Alex Beals ’18 hooked up and wired the projector that was sitting in the front room, and bought a projector screen to accompany it. The display cables are all wired into the Ryerson, which allows brothers to play video on the projector and use the sound system in the front room for audio. Monday movie nights have quickly become a staple of brotherhood programming, and it will no doubt come in handy once football season arrives in the fall.
Today, Alpha Chi Alpha congratulates and wishes well to our 24 graduating seniors. We would also like to extend special congratulations to Chris Leech and Bob Klingenberger, who were recognized as two of the valedictorians for the Class of 2016. We can’t wait to see all of you at homecoming!
Dartmouth’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest academic honor society, inducted 22 new members, including brothers Robert Klingenberger ’16 and Christopher Leech ’16.
To be eligible for election to Dartmouth’s chapter students must have completed eight terms within three years of matriculation and hold one of the top 20 cumulative grade point averages in their class.
On Sunday, February 15th, Alpha Chi hosted its 3rd annual Sausage Fest. We bought a root beer keg, grilled 150 sausages, and invited over Dartmouth’s all-male a cappella groups to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The Aires, the Cords, and the Brovertones put on a great show for a packed front room. Thanks to everybody’s willingness to donate, we ended up raising about $500 from both cosponsorships and DASH donations.
The brotherhood added a new bar to the basement this term! This was a project that the 14s had begun to think about over their sophomore summer but never fully tackled. The idea was first brainstormed by Patton Lowenstein ’14 over Summer 2012 and then revitalized by Andrew Roberts ’14 this year. John Conley ’15, our new houseman as of this term, spearheaded the project.
This term, Don Casler ’14 and Paul Hogan ’14 have spent a large chunk of their free time painting a new pong table for the house to use. The “A-side” of the table is a play off the seal of the United States. It’s got a siren on its head and holding a keystone in one claw and a pong paddle in the other.

This past weekend, the Brothers hosted the 26th annual Pigstick. This event is easily the highlight of most brothers’ spring terms, and for many, the whole year! Ray Crosby and his family served up great barbecue and Hypercane played a great set. Food was demolished and so was beer. A slight rain delay in the middle did not hamper the party at all. The loss of the backyard for the construction of KD led to a more intimate feel and the yard was packed. A great day was had by all.
Hi, my name is Andrew and I’ve spent the past three months envisioning and building this new version of the Alpha Chi website. Our old page was quite outdated and was only able to modified by those with a computer science and web-design background. This new site is built on top of WordPress so it has much more functionality and will be much easier for future executive boards to update. We’ve got a ton of new information and photographs on here, so take a second to browse all the menu items! Continue reading Welcome to the New Website!→
