A huge thank you goes out to all of those that attended the Grand Opening Celebration events. Without your help, we would not have had such an outstanding representation of Brothers from every era, resulting in attendance for all events exceeding expectations!
Over 300 alumni gathered at 321 Joselin Avenue for the Friday night Open House Social for food, drinks, fun, and memories. On Saturday morning more than 200 alumni, University of Cincinnati dignitaries, and SigEp National representatives came together for the official Ribbon Cutting & House Dedication Ceremony. The weekend was capped off with nearly 350 guests at the Grand Opening Banquet at the Horseshoe Casino for a night of reflection and celebration.
Be on the look out for a full recap in the next installment of Theta Data in the coming weeks!
