Mu Chapter Consul, Christian Miranda '15

April 19, 2015

Brothers,

Today was a great day for the Mu Chapter. We initiated 7 new members; Jordan Williams ‘17, Thomas Hayes ‘17, Brenner Boddell ‘17, David Heyer ‘17, William Kendall ‘17, Timothy Evans ‘17, and Anders Soderberg 17. Although a smaller pledge class, these young men exemplify the Jordan Standard and are a terrific addition to this chapter. They will carry the legacy of the Mu Chapter in the positive path that we are headed. 

This week is our Derby Days philanthropy event, Brothers Neeson ’15 and Higman ‘15 have been working tirelessly to be inclusive and thorough in planning the entire event. There is an event every day of this week, and they are all very fun. Tomorrow there is a volleyball tournament; Tuesday there is a Brother Auction where our talents will be auctioned off to the highest sorority bidder; Wednesday there is a BBQ at Lamson Lodge to bring everyone together and have some fun with the lovely Greek ladies; Thursday we have a Lip-Sync contest, where the ladies will perform a dance and lip sync to a song… all is very fun and each event will raise more and more money. As mentioned previously, we are donating to the Oligo Nation, foundation to support Brother Spencer Greene ’14 who has a rare form of brain cancer. This foundation provides research for that specific cancer. We are happy to help this foundation and our brother.

Please let me know if any of you would like a shirt from Derby Days. I know that Brother Dean Weaver ’89 would like one, and we have already put it aside. I will be reaching out to parents of the active chapter members as well, they have voiced that they would love to donate and receive a shirt. 

This Tuesday is the Richard C. Harman '35 Life Loyal Sig Award Dinner. It is at the House at 7 pm, there will be a majority of the active chapter there as well as some alumni. I am excited to start this dinner as a tradition. I believe that this award and the one that it is presented to deserve the recognition and the celebration. I look forward to seeing many of you there. 

In hoc,

Christian Miranda ’15, Consul
