8th annual Parent-Alumni Banquet

Parent-Alumni Weekend 2015

Our eighth annual banquet was a fantastic event that brought together about 50 parents, alumni and undergraduates at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Madison. Our annual meeting also saw Ted Jacobs ’13 join the board, while Brian Della ’95, Joe Moidl ’94 and Brian Schaeffer ’10 were re-elected to their board seats.

Do you want to be a mentor?


Help shape our undergrads’ future

This month, we are kicking off a new BSAA alumni mentorship program that will tap into the vast skill and knowledge base of Alpha Theta alumni.

What does it take to be a mentor?

Our program will allow for flexibility based on the preferences of the mentor and mentee, with a minimum of one in-person meeting per semester and monthly communication via phone or email.
Our mission is to perpetuate the existence of the Alpha Theta chapter and support its members. This mentorship program is the perfect way to do just that.

Sign up to be a mentor.

We hope you’ll consider joining the program. For more information, or if you have any questions, please contact Craig Bolyard or Brian Schaeffer.
