Epsilon Theta needs your help. We are launching a major fundraising
campaign to finance the renovations of the Epsilon Theta chapter
house. The Campaign for 259 is an opportunity for all alumni to bring
the unparalleled living and learning environment of E to future generations.
Throughout our chapter's history, the Corporation has rarely asked our
alumni for donations. It is only after serious deliberation that we do
so at this time. We embark on this campaign with the support of many
alumni/ae, who have volunteered their time and effort to ensure the
success of this undertaking. With your support, we can make 259 St.
Paul Street an even better home for our fraternity.
The E Corporation is about to
undertake the first major renovation of the chapter house in nearly 40
years. After providing a home to hundreds of students, the house is
showing its age. The SPUR project will replace windows in the house,
repair the foundation, modernize the electrical system, and restore
the house's historic grandeur.
Renovations make sense for the Fraternity. The Corporation considered
relocation, but rejected it as impractical for political, economic,
and sentimental reasons. Future generations of Thetans will benefit
from a functional, comfortable living space they can be proud of. The
renovations will also reduce future costs to the chapter and
Corporation through increased energy efficiency and fewer emergency
maintenance expenses. Additionally, the chapter will gain a
competitive edge in recruiting new members.
We look forward to the next 80 years at 259 St. Paul Street.
