The construction of the new SAE Indiana Gamma chapter house on North Jordan marked a new era in the history of our chapter, and the beginning of our quest to regain SAE’s great presence on campus. After a year of adjusting to life with a chapter house, Indiana Gamma thought it was time to display appreciation for the hard work and effort put in by previous Gamma members.
Sophomores Ben Womac, Jack Binzer with the help of junior Jake Hartmeister got to work in the basement of the house and hung up paddles and composites from past generations of Gamma, a step in setting foundations to create a strong cohesion between current members and Gamma alum. Ben Womac commented “We’re glad we could give Gamma history more of a presence in the house to remind the current members of where this chapter came from.”
As the rendezvous for chapter meetings, the basement is now a place in which current members are surrounded by the history of Indiana Gamma, spurring them to further improve the chapter like the many alum had done before.
