C&C 2017 Spring- 1st Quarter Issue


C&C 2017 Spring- 1st Quarter Issue 

From the Editor

Welcome to our first Cross & Crescent quarterly edition for 2017!

I am very excited to be working as the new editor of the Cross & Crescent.  As a recent journalism graduate from Indiana University, I have served in many reporting positions.  I look forward to how I can continue to grow in my communication skills, while also telling compelling stories from chapters across the country and Canada.

In this issue, we share in the success of the Alpha-Mu chapter at the University of Texas-Austin.  Over the course of several years, the chapter has grown from only 24 members with no housing fund or chapter savings, to a flourishing 118 members in 2016 and a recipient of the Lambda Chi Alpha Phoenix Award for overall chapter improvement.

We also pay tribute to the memory of the oldest living member of Theta Kappa Nu fraternity, who recently passed away at the age of 106.  Lambda Chi Alpha merged with Theta Kappa Nu in 1939, Spencer Yancey an influential member of this historical fraternity. Finally, it is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of undergraduate Peter Hart from the University of Michigan as a fraternity.

Throughout the rest of the issue, you will find inspirational stories from our chapters and the wonderful things they continue to achieve, from raising 60,000 pounds of food for a local food bank to being elected as the first High Alpha of a new colony.

It has been a pleasure serving as editor so far, and I look forward to many more Cross & Crescent issues, filled with accomplishments from our wonderful brotherhood.

As always, please remember to check cc.lambdachi.org for the latest updates on what is going on in Lambda Chi Alpha.  If you would like to see every article as it is published, please feel free to sign up to receive email alerts on cc.lambdachi.org.  If you have a story which you would like to share, please email editor@lambdachi.org.
