A Letter from the DKE President

Greetings,

First of all, thank you for visiting the Sigma Tau chapter website. I hope that you have been able to find all of the information you desired in visiting.

I am very proud to say that over the past year our chapter has continued its tradition of excellence and leadership on the MIT campus. This was made possible by a dedicated and passionate group of actives in addition to the outstanding officers who have served with me over the past semester.

Jake Laux '14 has done an excellent job as the chapter's Vice President and Risk Manager, ensuring that our social events occur in a safe and responsible manner. John Halloran '15, the House Treasurer, has been outstanding with the extremely challenging job of managing the chapter's finances. Joe Cunningham '16 has done very well as House Manager, keeping the house clean in addition to maintaining and updating it. Luther Banner III '16, the house Social Chair, did a great job of occasionally taking our minds of academics with an assortment of parties and mixers over the course of the semester. Last but certainly not least, Doug Nmagu '14, the House Steward, has done an exceptional job in ensuring that the brothers are happy with the meal plan and formal, along with keeping a close relationship with our chef, Dan West.

If you come by the DKE house this year, you will see some new faces. Thanks to our recruitment chair, Will Waste '14, we had a successful rush in 2013 that resulted in 12 new members pledging Delta Kappa Epsilon. We are very excited to welcome Andrew Titus, Bradley Walcher, Christian Argenti, Christopher Sanfilippo, David Houle, Kevin Kusch, Matthew Iovino, Matthew Lindsay, Ryan Karnish, Seth Studebaker, and Travis Herbanek as the Sigma Tau pledge class of 2016.

As always, the brothers of Delta Kappa Epsilon at MIT have continued their participation and leadership in athletics. The MIT Football team, which finished the season with 6 wins this year, sported 37 DKE brothers and pledges, including 3 brothers as team captains. In 2013, DKE saw 9 brothers earning ALL-NEFC honors and 3 brothers earning Academic All-District honors. One of our brothers, Joesph Campion '15, is helping represent MIT as a member of the Basketball team. Tim Wilson '14 will continue his role as a relief pitcher for the baseball team this spring when practice resumes. Actives Ben Greenberg '15, and alumni Will Vega-Brown '11 all still actively participating in MIT's Jiu Jitsu club. Finally, Cosma Kufa '16, our chapter's Intramural Chair, has done a great job increasing our involvement in intramural sports at MIT.

As we look forward to a new year, we perform the sad duty of saying goodbye to the senior class. Many of the graduating class are leaving MIT to start their careers in a number of different fields, and the rest will be off to graduate school. Whatever their destination, we wish them the best of luck and hope they will always remember the good times they had here at Delta Kappa Epsilon.

Justin Wallace '15
