Gamma Beta Colony Launches at Northwestern

Chapter News

The Gamma Beta Colony was recolonized in the earliest months of 2013. It could be said that the Alpha class came together in opposition to the current stagnant Greek life that exists in many chapters at the University. Instead of joining other fraternities with the stereotypical motives of partying and meeting sorority girls, the men of Gamma Beta came together as reformers with a mission to be heavily involved both on campus, within the community, and around the country. Since the first chapter meeting, the colony has been hard at work putting together a petition for its chartering. As a byproduct of its efforts, the colony has gained a significant amount of recognition from sororities, school officials, and members of the Evanston community.

The Gamma Beta Colony began its recolonization efforts in January of 2013 with the guidance of Brother Spencer Montgomery and, later, Brother Bill Morosco. Since then the colony has worked hard brainstorming new and innovative ideas to introduce to Greek life at Northwestern University.

Like mentioned earlier, the men of Gamma Beta came together in stark opposition to the stagnancy of many chapters on the campus. In fact, many current brothers turned down offers from other chapters so that they could create the stronger and more sincere chapter that would become Gamma Beta. Every man brought with him to Gamma Beta an opposition to hazing, a passion to serve the community, and a desire to grow as men. It was the search for a place that supported an environment such as this that drove the recolonization of Gamma Beta.

The colony began with elections of the executive board and committee chairmen. From there the colony quickly pressed forward assigning committees, brainstorming new initiatives, and making campus-wide connections. With the guidance of some incredible committee chairmen, Gamma Beta laid down a solid foundation on which to grow. Once the foundation was built, it was just a matter of pushing forward with the same intensity with which the colony began its journey.

Community Service and Philanthropy Chairman, Danny Callison, is working with his committee to piece together a 5-10 kilometer race to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital this upcoming October. Additionally, the colony is excited to be one of the first fraternities within the IFC to build strong relationships with the other Greek councils and non-Greek student groups.
