Spring 2020 Initiation Update: That’s the Way the Concrete Crumbles :(

Hi everyone– an unfortunate update for you. Due to the unforeseen circumstances of a global pandemic (!), spring initiation procedures for 2020 are postponed until fall 2020. While this is very disappointing, we feel it is the best decision to give everyone the opportunity for a full initiation experience while protecting public and personal health. As for candidacy, if you were eligible this spring, you will automatically be eligible in the fall. Your group of initiates will be joined by those newly eligible in the fall. Additionally, for those of you who came to our spring GBM, your attendance will roll over into the fall and count towards your three required events.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at chiepsilon.umd@gmail.com. We wish you all the best in your online classes, hope you’re staying safe, sane, and well-stocked, and we thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
