After five weeks of classes, the Chi Eta chapter decided it was time for a weekend in the Great Outdoors. So 54 brothers spent the February 26-28 weekend at Mt. LeConte Lodge in Gatlinburg, Tenn.
Some brothers spent the first night playing cards and shooting pool inside the cabin. Meanwhile others enjoyed a beautiful starry evening relaxing in a six-person hot tub or playing guitar on a spacious back deck. The next morning, brothers were treated to an egg, bacon, and sausage breakfast, paid for by the chapter. Full from breakfast, the brothers split into groups to see the sights of Gatlinburg and neighboring Pigeon Forge. Brothers walked the shops, rode go-karts, played putt-putt, and enjoyed local dining. Meanwhile another group of brothers spent the afternoon taking a hike.
Saturday night, the brothers grilled steaks for supper. Then they celebrated one last night of brotherhood with remarks from graduating seniors and the singing of favorite fraternity songs. By the time everyone came back Sunday morning, Chi Eta had celebrated a weekend that will forever be in the hearts of its brothers.
