We are very fortunate to have had the strong support of the Ames Alumni Chapter since our beginning days at Iowa State University. It is the Ames Alumni who first purchased us a house on Hyland in the 1950s, then who built us a new house at 223 Lynn in the mid-1980s and who have since acquired for us our current house at 2132 Sunset Drive. As advisors, mentors, and friends, the Ames Alumni Chapter and Board Members challenge us to be better men and relate to us the importance of our relationship with one another, our community, and Christ.
We enjoy a strong relationship with our alumni organization, which has allowed us to grow stronger during the past decade when several other chapters have fallen. Our alumni regularly stop by to tour the house, attend meetings in advisory roles, oversee improvements to the chapter house, and return en masse for Homecoming. It is at these times that we are able to learn from and share our common experiences that bond us as brothers even though several decades may separate us.
Mortgage Burning Party
It is with great pride we announce the plans for Homecoming Weekend 2017! As you may have seen in our last newsletter, we have paid off our mortgage for the 2132 Sunset Residence. Through the generosity of alumni like you, careful planning by generations of alumni boards, and the diligence of over 50 years of active brothers, we can remove a significant debt that has been hanging over our heads since the building of 233 Lynn building.

- Due to time constraints for shipping, Beta Sigma Psi polos are no longer available. Please contact email@example.com to see if any extra polos are still available.
- Sponsor an active member to attend the Mortgage Burning Banquet. We are trying to make the banquet affordable to our alumni and their guests, and we would like to offer attendance to the active members for a very low cost. For those alumni able to afford it, we’d like to ask if you’d consider sponsoring an active’s attendance and donating an additional $50.
Due to the strong demand for hotel rooms, we were unable to reserve rooms at a discounted rate.
Nothing from December 14, 2017 to December 13, 2018.
