Alpha Kappa Psi- Beta NUsletter

March 2016

Welcome!

Happy April First, alumni brothers! I hope your day is safe and prank-free! Unless, of course, you are the one pulling off the prank. In which case, may your efforts be successful. It is my wish that everyone had a fun Easter, filled with lots of chocolate eggs, jellybeans, and cute bunnies. This newsletter contains important information regarding the 80th Anniversary Celebration occurring on Saturday, April 30th. April's Newsletter will be combined with May's, as we are only in school for dead week and finals week. Therefore, the newsletter won't be sent out on the first of the month like usual. As always, our schedule for the remainder of the spring semester can be found below.


*If you or another alumni have accepted a job, earned a promotion, gotten married, etc., let us know! We would love to spread the good news and celebrate our Brothers' success!

80th Anniversary Celebration

Alpha Kappa Psi was introduced to the University of Wyoming on May 16, 1936, making it Beta Nu's 80th birthday.

For alumni: spouses and significant others are welcome to attend; however, children are not allowed. Therefore, you may have a max of one guest. Alumni and their guest will have assigned seats.

  • BBQ Deboned Chicken Breast
  • Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes with Garlic and Chives
  • Macaroni & Cheese with a five cheese blend
  • Bread Rolls
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Fresh tossed salad
  • Broccolislaw
  • Coffee, Tea, and Water
