Brothers Kyle Baum and Patrick Howell have been nominated for election on Student Senate. Freshman Kyle Baum is running for the position of Public Relations. Baum was appointed this position mid term last year after that seat had been resigned. This would therefor be Baums second term in the executive position as he is running unopposed. Sophomore Patrick Howell was nominated for junior class representative, it would be his second term in the position. Howell resigned his position in the fall due to responsibilities he as Photography Editor for the Baker Orange. Howell now feels his schedule can once again accommodate the responsibilities of both positions.

Those members are sophomore Eric Reimer and freshmen Adam Blevins, Kyle Baum and Caleb Watts. Eric Reimer is also the director of all orientation leaders at Baker and it is his second year as an orientation leader. Applicants were interviewed individually and selected based upon campus involvement and academics as well as leadership skills. They will be assisting the university in providing information to visiting students on specific visit and scholarship days during the summer and be group leaders for freshman during orientation week in August. SigEp has the most orientation leaders of any greek organization on campus.
Six members of Kansas Alpha attended the 2010 Carlson Leadership Academy this past weekend. Brothers Eric Reimer, Kevin Hosteter, Charlie Bolinger, Kirsten Shuck, Ryan McCluney, and Dylan Pryor. Faculty Fellow and honorary member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Dr. Kevin McCarthy also joined the group. Former Chapter Counselor J.J. De Simone also attended the CLA with the brothers of Wisconsin Theta of the University of Wisconsin, were he is currently completing graduate school.
Those who attended collaborated with alumni from other chapters and current members who are officers of the same positions. They also learned about risk management issues and Kansas Alpha has since taken this information to make improvements to our own risk management plan.
