Brothers Sean O'Connell and Nicholas De La Torre Present at AICHE Conference

Last weekend, brothers Sean O'Connell and Nicholas De La Torre presented research posters at the undergraduate portion of the annual meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in Salt Lake City, Utah. Sean (CHME '17) worked on maximizing voltage and power output of methanol fuel cells, while Nick (CHME '17) used an autoclave to breakdown cellulose and perform hydrolysis to produce glucose, in order to make the process of producing glucose more cost effective.

Brothers Cheering for Breast Cancer Survivors

This past Sunday, the Brother's of Beta Gamma Epsilon volunteered at the Boston Making Strides Breast Cancer walk. Many families were out to support their loved ones and the brothers felt it necessary to recognize the struggles people have been through. What better way to do so than cheering for those who have fought against breast cancer and supporting their caregivers, friends, and families. After the walk, we assisted with the cleanup of the tables, signs, chairs, tents, etc. to help make the process end as swiftly as possible.

Reflecting on winter

Everyone has their own way of dealing with the weather. Ours is to create an indestructible snow fortress using our skills as engineers. While this winter has been one of the coldest and most brutal on record, it was not without its experiences that I will remember fondly for the rest of my life. Preparing our house for a storm is always exciting. It's over a hundred years old, and has been through countless storms. The walk to the house from campus seems to get longer and longer the deeper we get into winter, but the fire in our beautiful alumni room gets warmer in turn. By the time you'd finished shoveling out front of our house and our neighbors, the snow seemed to have replaced itself, but you always had brothers out there who had your back.

BGE Helps at Habitat for Humanity

This Valentine’s Day, several brothers woke up bright and early to spend the day helping to build a house in nearby Wayland, MA, volunteering at Habitat for Humanity of MetroWest/Greater Worcester. Braving frigid temperatures and an impending blizzard, the volunteers had a great time assisting in the interior framing of the future duplex’s basement and first floor.

Stepping Out to Stop Diabetes

This past weekend brothers of Beta Gamma Epsilon volunteered with the American Diabetes Association's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes event in the Boston Common. A big thanks to all of the volunteers who came out on Saturday to make clean up a walk in the park! Below, Ryan Pembroke, Pankil Modi, and Zac Boulerice help move extra boxes of food after the event.

Supporting Active Minds at Northeastern Succeeds with Flying Colors

Over this past Columbus Day weekend, brothers volunteered for the Active Minds Color Run, which promotes awareness for mental health. Brothers had a great time manning the color stations and even had some fun of their own.

We Are Boston

Beta Gamma Epsilon extends its condolences, thoughts and prayers to the victims and families of the tragic events that occurred on Marathon Monday. As we grieve with our city, we would like to thank the citizens, first responders, police, National Guard and other government agencies for their heroic actions and diligent efforts in keeping us safe.

Big Home Improvements

The house received a major update last summer with the reconstruction of the roof. This was a huge accomplishment for the brotherhood and the Alumni Association, who worked very hard to raise funds and complete the project. This work will ensure that we may enjoy our home on Commonwealth Avenue for many years to come. Below is a photo of the crane used to hoist materials up 4 floors to the roof.
