Over the weekend of December fourth through sixth, Beta Nu members, pledges, and recent alumni traveled to Winter Park, CO for formal weekend, where several members of Alpha Kappa Psi from University of Northern Colorado joined us. On Friday, December 4, the group got together for dinner at a bistro in Winter Park, then hung out at the hotel together where we were able to go swimming or soak in the hot tub. The following day, many brothers met at Fraser Tubing Hill to ride inner tubes down an icy, snowy hill, while other brothers explored what Winter Park has to offer. After tubing, many members branched out to various locations to eat lunch. Then, several brothers went on a brewery tour. On Saturday night we had our Masquerade-themed formal where appetizers were served and a DJ was present. As a quick game at the beginning, those in attendance received a name tag placed on their back with the name of either a male or female in a well-known celebrity couple. Members had to ask other people questions in order to figure out who they were. Once they established their identity, they were tasked with finding their match in the couple! On Sunday, brothers made the journey back home, preparing for dead week and finals week. It was a fun and enjoyable weekend for all!

80th Anniversary Celebration

Information on Beta Nu's 80th anniversary celebration will be detailed in the next newsletter. Until then, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 30th!
