ATO Communication Survey

Brothers,

I need your help!

For my MBA Business Communications class, I am required to conduct a communication audit through administration of a survey.

It would be helpful if I could get some alumni feedback about past communication practices so that I can evaluate the current communication climate within the chapter.

RIP “Quantity vs. Quality” Recruitment Myth

From the Sigma Nu Fraternity HQ blog:

ESPN reported today that Butler’s men’s basketball team earned top honors among this year’s Final Four contenders:

On Tuesday, the NCAA released its list of academic overachievers, and Butler was the only team among those that reached this year’s championship round in Division I football, men’s basketball or women’s basketball.

Butler head coach and class act Brad Stevens (an Alpha Tau Omega) explained why excelling in the classroom is merely a basic expectation:

“To be real candid, that’s an expectation of mine, so we’re not going to do cartwheels or shoot fireworks because this is something we achieved,” coach Brad Stevens said after the release. “That’s an expectation and that’s what we’re going to strive to do. I’m proud of our guys, but they came to Butler to do well in the classroom, on the court and in the community, and that’s what we expect.

Alabama Tornado Crisis, Help Needed

I got an email from Bruce Evans wanting to make sure everyone underdstood he was not affected by the storm and the community he lives in had very little damage. At the same time Brother Evans indicated there was a lot of need for assistance in Alabama. Brother Evans is involved in relief efforts and the MedMission suggestion is a good way to help. If interested please follow the instructions below.

Alpha Tau Omega CJ majors demonstrate patriotic feelings

This article by Kolby Flowers originally appeared in The Houstonian, May 3, 2011.

In the aftermath of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden’s death, new debates have emerged.

What happens next for the ‘War on Terror?’”

34 ATOs Shane Rankin & Mike Ritchie”Americans understand the costs of war,” President Barack Obama said in a press conference Sunday night. “Yet, as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed.”

On nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al-Qaida’s terror: Justice has been done.”

However, bin Laden’s death does not mark the end of the U.S. effort.

There’s no doubt that al-Qaida will continue to pursue attacks against us,” Obama said. “We must, and will remain vigilant at home and abroad.”
