April 30, 2011 and Heartland Recap

November 22nd, 2009 gcepstein Posted in Alumni, Events | No Comments »

Just wanted to give a little update and recap about our great alumni event Thursday night at the Heartland Brewery, and mention the latest happenings. We ended up with over 75 alumni bros gathering in Times Square for lots of TAU banter and catching up. The night culminated with a fabulous Spring 2009 Scoreboard Dedication / Initiation weekend TAU video which was totally put together and produced by Ken Hagan (Spring 1984), which led into our TAU song!  The video was truly momentous, and hopefully many bros who were not in attendance last night will be able to see it.

As we mentioned on Thursday, the 50th Anniversary Celebration of TAU will be held in Binghamton on the weekend of April 30th, 2011. We know this is a long ways away, but lots of attention and planning will be needed to make this a truly, outstanding event. Please mark your calendars!

Once again, it was great seeing so many of you at the event, and we look forward to seeing lots of you at all events to come!!

Quis Separabit??!!

TAU Sponge Weekend featured in Alumni Newsletter

September 12th, 2009 MRings07 Posted in Alumni, Events, Press | No Comments »

The following recap was featured in the latest Binghamton University Alumni “Gatherings” Newsletter:

“During the weekend of June 12-15, TAU alumni participated in a weekend celebration honoring the Sponge, culminating with the 7th annual Golf Challenge at Hamlet Wind Watch Golf Club in Hauppauge, N.Y.  The weekend began with a raucous dinner on Friday, continued with the main event on Saturday night (attended by more than 100 brothers and guests), followed by a “Sponge-in-the-Park” picnic Sunday, which led into Monday’s golf outing.

About 100 TAU alumni, active brothers and guests attended the golf outing and dinner reception.  Larry Hollander ‘78 won the event and took home the TAU Bowl of Sportsmanship (gross score 85 / net score 74).  Michael Blechman ‘89 (gross 104 / net 75) was the net runner-up, and Craig Sirota ‘91 rounded out the net winners with a 3rd place finish. The low gross score of the day (88) was accomplished by Sanjay Malhotra ‘85.  The Team Net trophy went to the foursome of David Ramos ‘87, Michael Schwartz ‘88, Brian Schechter ‘87 and Michael Kufeld ‘87.  Closest-to-the-pin winners were Martin Friedman ‘75 and John O’Brien; Malhotra, past TAU alumni coordinator, had the longest drive.  See more images from this event at the Alumni Association’s photo sharing site.

During the dinner, the annual raffle took place, with TAU brothers donating more than $2,500 for the Terrence “Tex” Haran Memorial TAU Scholarship Fund, bringing the principal total to more than $30,000.”

TAU Comedy Event in BU Pipe Dream

February 10th, 2009 MRings07 Posted in Events, Press | No Comments »

Tau Alpha Upsilon’s upcoming comedy event that showcases Binghamton University professor Ryan Vaughan has been featured in BU Pipe Dream. Here is an excerpt:

“…Tau Alpha Upsilon asked Vaughan to perform in order to publicize the fraternity and to show greek life isn’t just about partying.

‘We wanted to get our name out,’ said Matthew Ring, the vice president of Tau Alpha Upsilon. ‘Not everyone is into the whole house party thing. Greek life has a pretty bad reputation and we want to show that it’s not all about having 400 scumbags at a party.’

Tau Alpha Upsilon treasurer Patrick Socias said there were other outlets for brotherhood.

“It’s not all about drinking,” he said.

According to Ring and Socias, Tau Alpha Upsilon is the oldest social fraternity on campus. They went on to say they have over 700 alumni who are more involved in the University than any other fraternity.

Vaughan said he was ecstatic when Ring and Socias, both of whom are his students, asked him to perform.

‘We just asked him after class one day,’ Ring said. ‘In total, all of the negotiations took about five minutes.’

Vaughan, who received his doctorate in English literature and creative writing from BU, has performed several comedy routines on campus. He has taught at BU for the last five years…”
