Post date: Mar 22, 2016 3:15:42 PM

Brothers, the Beta Sigma Alumni Association's plans for Carnival 2016 are underway! See the schedule below. We hope to see you there!

We will post updates to the schedule on our website:, and on Facebook, in our closed group.

Visit if you are interested in registering through CMU - this will help give us an accurate headcount for food. There should be two events listed: Pi Kappa Alpha Alumni Luncheon and Beta Sigma Corporation Annual Meeting (which might be renamed to PKA Beta Sigma Alumni Assn Annual Meeting). Undergrads are welcome and encouraged to attend. Alternatively, you can just send us an email to let us know you'll be there.

Follow if you are interested in following news from the Buggy community in general. Feel free to let us know at if you are attending, or if you have any other questions or concerns.


The chapter may be prohibited from participating in the buggy races at Carnival this year, due to social probation. This is pending appeal by the chapter. We will keep you updated with any news. Please contact for further info.
