CHI GAMMA BEGINNINGS
Chi Gamma is located in the Southeastern Region and became a colony of Theta Tau in 2007. We were established as a chapter two years later with nine founding University of Tennessee engineering students. Chi Gamma mixes the brotherhood and philanthropy of a social fraternity with the professional contacts, developmental tools, and atmosphere of an honor society ultimately creating some of the most qualified job applicants in the market.
Chi Gamma has now grown to roughly fifty active members, making it one of the largest chapters in the region. At the 2018 Southeastern regional conference, Chi Gamma was awarded for our chapter size. We were also recognized on the National level the past year, Chi Gamma was awarded multiple national and regional awards for overall size and quality including Best Website and Alumni Newsletter.
This year our chapter gets to celebrate an exciting milestone in our history. On January 31st, 2019 we will celebrate our 10th anniversary of being a chapter! This is an exciting accomplishment that we look forward to celebrating all year.
Chi Gamma has six executive positions that each act in specific roles to advance the interests of the fraternity. Executives serve terms of one year and are chosen via chapter vote. Current executive positions are as follows:
Regent - Casey Gredzieleski
Vice Regent - Matthew Cummings
Marshall - Noah Schaftlein
Corresponding Secretary - Angelique Faye Graven
Treasurer - Max Neveau
Scribe - Peyton Holman
THETA TAU BEGINNINGS
Theta Tau was founded on October 15, 1904 by four engineering students at the University of Minnesota College of Mining as the Society of Hammer and Tongs.
The purpose of Theta Tau is to develop and maintain a high standard of professional interest among its members, and to unite them in a strong bond of fraternal fellowship.
With over 80 campuses, Theta Tau is now the largest and oldest professional engineering fraternity in the United States and the only professional engineering fraternity at the University of Tennessee. Read more about the national network of Theta Tau members at thetatau.org.
