Theta Chi Bothers have been busy on campus and in town this semester.
Brother Ryan Gattoni and Stephen Sandford were part of an effort to create "Little Lion's Pantries". Using the Theta Chi basement, Gattoni, Sandford and other students worked to create small food pantries that will be placed around town. They have both been very involved in working with "The Lion's Pantry" which establishes a way for impoverished students to get free food with no questions asked.

Also outside the chapter house brother Ryan Gattoni was once again elected to the IFC Executive Board and VP of Programming. In addition, he was also selected to be on the Executive Board of Fresh Start.
Brother John Broderick is the Lead Program Coordinator for the Sexual Violence Awareness club on campus, Men Against Violence. He has given multiple speeches this year and was recently selected to speak at the University sponsored Sexual Violence Prevention Gala.
Brothers Broderick and Gattoni were in charge of "Walk a Mile in her Shoes", an event where male members of the community (mainly Greeks) wear heels and walk down campus in a showing of solidarity to those who have been sexually assaulted.
Brother Kevin Diguiseppe was selected to be a Greek Week Programming Captain. Brother Neel Parikh was recently chosen to be the Lead Analyst of Exotic Commodities for the Penn State Asset Management Group. Also, Bryant Narvaez was elected to be the Treasurer for the ALPFA (Association of Latino Professionals for America).
And finally, the GI Theta Chi event was very successful and built on last year's event. The chapter raised approximately $1000 for the USO through the event. We will have more info and photos from GI Theta Chi soon.

Check out video of Sean Curry and Samantha Fisher during one of their early practice runs for the 2015 Greek Week Pageant (and when we say early we mean both early in the process and at 1:00 AM). This is about half their routine 4 days into their practice. They practiced 3 hours every night because they had a weeks notice till the pageant.
