In Honor of our Courageous Brother, Mike Mandl
New Members Taking the Oath to Become an SAE
In the News
- Welcome Fall 2016 New Members: Thomas Benson from Kensington, MD; William Columbia from Canton, CT; Austin Gray from Reisterstown, MD; and Mohil Gupta, from Ellicott City, MD were initiated in the UMD Garden Chapel on September 10. Four new SAE True Gentlemen added to the ranks of the Maryland Beta Chapter at Maryland.
- Recruitment is truly a year round process at Maryland Beta. It is important that interested high school seniors and UMD students submit a Recruitment Recommendation and state their potential interest early on (click here) so they can get on the recruitment/rush list and be kept informed of recruitment events throughout the semester. Similarly, alumni and friends of chapter members should also submit a Recruitment Recommendation to the chapter (click here). For more information about Maryland Beta's recruitment, click on the RUSH button in the top menu bar above.
- "Cancer Can't Handle the Mandl": was held on April 1, from 3 - 5 PM at the Alpha Omicron Pi (AOP) chapter house. SAE is raising awareness of youth cancer and raising charitable funds since it has "hit home." 22 year old Mike Mandl, from Clarksville, MD, a former member of the chapter, was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma two days before Christmas 2015. He has undergone chemotherapy followed by an operation on March 30. With more chemotherapy to follow, he has a long road ahead since the cancer may have spread.
This event was in honor of him and raised $3,100 in proceeds for Relay for Life (American Cancer Society) and the The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and highlighted this seldom talked about youth disease. The College Park community came out in full support of this worthy cause. Our Creed teaches us to become a True Gentleman, and this event is a prime example of what our fraternity is all about. Best wishes go out to Mike, his family and friends.
- Seven Centennial Honor Roll Honorees Named as part of DFSL's celebration of 100 years of Greek life on the University of Maryland Campus. Each Greek Letter organization earned one honoree slot for every 10 years they remained active on campus. SAE is proud to boast of our seven honorees:
