Gamma Nu Celebrates 45th Anniversary
June 3, 2011: Rochester, N.Y.—Gamma Nu chapter at RIT recently hosted a 45th anniversary celebration of the chapter’s founding. More than 70 undergraduates, alumni and guests attended the weekend events.
The celebration included a pig roast at the Gamma Nu chapter house on campus and the chapter’s annual banquet at a local restaurant. Chapter President Zach Field, RIT ’10, and Three Rivers Domain Director PJ Best, RIT ’04, spoke at the banquet, while founding member and BOG Chairman Gary Proud, RIT ’66, presented awards to undergraduates.
Phil Frandina, RIT ’08, received Brother of the Year and Outstanding Achievement Outside the House. Associate Member of the Year went to Tom Baxley, RIT ’10, and the Academic Athletic Award was given to Eric Longville, RIT AM.
Field said his favorite part of the weekend was the pig roast because it was a chance to catch up with brothers in a more informal setting.
“These kinds of events are crucial for any chapter because they are so important in maintaining good alumni relations,” he said. “They also give brothers a time to relax and touch base with one another away from the day-to-day routine.”
