Restoration of Stolen Barker Trophy

The 1940s Barker Trophy that sat on the Trophy Hall table was stolen in 1977. We have recovered some pieces of it and are considering restoring it. In order to get an estimate, we need photographs of the trophy. Can you look through your old pictures to see if you can help? Contact Mark A.

Spring 2019 Society Meeting

It wasn’t a warm day in Troy on April 13th for the Society meeting.  However we started promptly at 8 AM, and the two boards got directly to work.  The Junior Membership has been having a reasonably successful year navigating their suspension.  As predicted, the loss of a pledge class will be having a negative impact on RSE JM operations, however the current sophomores will be moving into 1501 Sage this fall. 

After reviewing the various officer reports the team separated into our Task Forces.  Cary Nadel ‘77 and Eric John ’95 joined our Live-In Advisor Pete Liporace to work on the Reinstatement Plan.  The Dean of Students Office currently requires that RSE completes a substantial document to apply for re-admission to Greek life.  Current RSE JM President Jack Graham ‘21 has led the JM EComm in separating this daunting task into smaller sections.  At this time we are expecting our initial submission in a few weeks, with inevitable revisions before we are approved in the fall.

Mark Your Calendars! RSE Strategic Retreat Planned for July

During the summer of 2017, RSE held a Strategic Retreat in the NYC area.  The purpose of this first retreat was to address some of the high level concerns facing our organization.  As a result of that retreat, RSE has been more focused on a long-term perspective these last 18 months.  One of the best results of the retreat was our ability to interact with many Junior Members, and work towards achieving common goals.

One of RSE’s struggles is the fact that our JM Leadership team completely changes every three years.  While many of us can testify that the three years we lived at 1501 Sage seems to have lasted a long time, from the viewpoint of a 153 year old organization that’s pretty rapid turnover.  So, we are going to have another retreat in Newark, NJ this summer, the weekend of July 19-21st, 2019RSE will be hosting the JM leadership, and reserving rooms for Society Members to book.
