Zeta Editorial Volume 1 Wednesday Issue 15 December 17, 2008 Letter from the Editor... BY A J LOPEZ III Last night we initi- EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ated seven new guys into the bond we all call Lambda Chi Alpha. For these new guys, it has been a wonderful experience to know them. Also, we had elections and we now have new officers. I will be taking over the High Rho office. For all of you who are rusty on your Lambda Chi Alpha knowledge, it is the Alumni Secretary for the fraternity. I will be wanting to meet with all the Alumni I have met and give them a deeper understanding of where the chap- ter is going and also want to learn and meet the Alumni I have not met. I will be revamping this office and imple- menting programs through it. I hope that the Alumni of the Beta-Alpha chapter will please assist me in this effort to rekindle lost contacts from the fraternity. On behalf of the Beta-Alpha Zeta I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!
