New Executive Board
New Candidate Class
This semester, Gamma Pi has 21 new brothers in training. They’re all excited to go through the membership education process this semester and we’re excited to have them! Below are pictures and names of the new BITs.
North Central District Convention
The North Central District Convention will be held in Fort Wayne, Indiana on April 8th through April 10th.
Currently, we are the chapter with the most attendees. We have 17 candidates, 18 active brothers, and alumni all going to convention this year!
Registration is still going on until March 8th. After March 8th, there will be a $5 increase. The link for registration can be found below:
In addition to having so many members attending this year, I, Katie Boyer, am currently running for Vice President of Programs for the North Central District Office. Convention will be huge this year and we encourage alumni to attend!

The past few semesters, Gamma Pi has been helping with Purdue Archives, located in Stewart Center Library. We’ve been helping by reorganizing the band and orchestras section of the archives, which is a great opportunity for the brothers to learn about the department’s history and fun facts not well know, such as this excerpt about Spotts Emrick that was found in the archives:
“At Purdue, Emrick not only developed America’s premiere college band; he developed a reputation for toughness sprinkled liberally with some of the saltiest language then heard in West Lafayette. Nor at band practice did Emrick care much who heard him. One bandsman, apparently not playing up to Emrick’s standard, took Emrick’s blast full on, as Emrick loudly compared the sound the hornsman made with that of a dozen goats flatulating.”
