  • Apply to be a F18 Chair!

    Chair applications for the upcoming semester are open until August 30th at 11:59 PM.

    Being a chair is a great way to earn your leadership credit and have influence over the chapter without having as much of a time commitment as an officer. Want to improve our professional development for students interested in graduate school? Interact with company representatives? Design the next t-shirt or get more TBP swag? Then we have a chair position for you!

    If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me or any of the officers!

    Apply here if you are interested.

  • The Combined Winter/Fall 2020 Banquet

    2020 has been an utterly unrecognizable year in our history. In the novel turn of events, we were not able to recognize the W2020 Tau Bates for their service, either Active or Electee. Moreover, we have operated in wholly novel circumstances this semester. While challenging, MI-Gamma nevertheless elected many new members, and performed a host of community service.

    We wish to recognize the efforts done to restrict the spread of Covid-19, while still safely performing service to our community at large. To do so, we are hosting a combined Virtual Banquet for Winter and Fall 2020 semesters! Sign up, have fun, and engage in the spirit of friendship and fellowship! Awards will be given, Outstanding members will be recognized, and lasting memories will be formed.

    To encourage your attendance, we will reimburse/subsidize food purchases up to a TBD amount. We encourage you to have your food item ready at the start of the event. Standard University restrictions apply, i.e., no alcohol.

    Join the Banquet Slack group! Requests to join can be sent to tbp.banquet+slack@umich.edu

    When: Sat. Dec. 5, 2020, 6 p.m.– 8 p.m.

    Where: Virtual (TBD)

    Event is 127/150 full.

  • New Initiatives V

    Come earn a service hour and discuss ways to improve the chapter! Both electees and actives are encouraged to attend.
