Feasibility Study Update St. Pats 2012

Feasibility Study Recommends Capital Campaign for Chapter House

Pennington & Co. presented the results of the Feasibility Study to members of the House Corporation in July. The 40 page report (with appendixes and charts) recommended that ADZ implement a minimum fundraising goal of $2.0 million. Regarding ADZ alumni the report concluded: The ADZ House Corp and the undergraduate chapter owe a debt of gratitude to those alumni and undergraduate members who pledged $24,000 at Homecoming 2011 to cover the expenses of the Feasibility Study. ADZ House Corporation Voted to Proceed . ADZ House Corporation voted to engage Pennington & Co for $126,000 plus about $21,000 in expenses to conduct a Capital Campaign and other services to raise $2.8 million within 5 years. In addition, ADZ House Corp. will most likely need to secure new debt financing later in the campaign. All debt can be retired by raising chapter house bills starting no later than Fall Semester 2017, and still maintain house bills lower than the cost of the least expensive dorm at MS&T and less than the three fraternities that already have made costly house improvements.) Fraternal Law Partners of Cincinnati has been engaged to create a 501 (c) (3) tax deductible foundation to receive the funds from the campaign. `

Excerpts from the 1946 Transit

NEW INTIATES Charles Velvin Turner of St. Louis, Mo., is now Alpha Delta 313. Vel started out to become a Chemical Engineer but Don .Meyer soon convinced him he should be a physics major. He has already shown a keen mind, both academic and otherwise. At the present time he is in the armed services and we are looking forward to the day when he will be with us again. Alpha Delta 314 is Stan Hrach, who hails from Richmond Heights, Mo. Stan is a freshman mechanical and was out for varsity football his first semester here. Stan was quite popular from the moment he arrived here and his 1917 model convertible did spartan duty until it went the way of all good cars. Alpha Delta 315 is also from Affton, Mo. He is Gene Tyrer and is a Chemical Engineer. Gene is a good bridge player and has shown good journalistic ability on the Miner staff. At the present time he is the sports editor of the Miner. NEW PLEDGES From the cold January elements, seven new pledges were welcomed into the fraternal atmosphere of Alpha Delta. We are glad to have these men with us we wish them the best of luck. Back with us this semester is Don Griesedick. After spending a year in a prison camp, he has decided that M. S. M. isnt so bad after all. Don, originally pledged in 42, was reinstated with this new class. He is majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Seen bouncing between almost any two actives is Don Gokenbach. "Gooke" comes from Affton, Missouri and is very much interested in golf, tennis, and playing bridge with a certain young lady as his partner. He is a bundle of "vim, vigor and vitality" and is cheerful while doing any tasks assigned. The athlete of Alpha Delta is Russ Sublette who hails from Kansas City. Weight lifting and dancing are his specialties, and he may be seen at most of the dances throwing some girl around, One look at his muscular physique and you can easily see why the girls swoon. We have one married man in the pledge class, Jack OBrien of Mexico, Missouri. He has taken a lot of stiff ribbing from the fellows but he has survived the strain. All we ask is, "When do we get cigars?". From the Canadian part of the Hemisphere, comes Lionel Villemaire to study Mining and Geology. He is the only freshman active in the A. I. M. E. and were proud of him. Commonly known as "Frenchie," it is rumored he is teaching some of the co-eds their French lessons. Another pledge hailing from Affton is Ronald Knueppel. Hes been a hard worker and a great asset to the pledge class. Although he hasnt made up his mind definitely he expresses a preference for Mechanical Engineering. The last pledge is George Klaber. If you see a little black Ford flashing along, then youll know George is around. He lives outside the house, but can easily be recognized by the bandaged finger on his right hand. Thats what you get for pointing. George intends to become a Chemical Engineer.
