Saturday, November 17, 2012, nineteen new members in the Upsilon Class were initiated. 58 brothers and approximately 25 alumni, including Rutgers faculty, gather at Foran Hall on Cook Campus to welcome the new brothers. The night included various chapter rituals, including games, debates, the initiation ceremony and celebration. The Upsilon class received their AZ Gold pin and their first set of letters. They also presented their Sergeant, Censor, and Archive paddles, the latter of which was presented to the Chancellor. Each pledge made a paddle for their Bigs as well, as a thank you for the time given over the semester. The Bigs also gave presents as a congratulations for the large achievement. It was a great night and they are a class with a lot of promise.
