North Dakota State University, Gamma Tau Chapter

The 2018-19 academic year was the Gamma Tau Chapter of HKN’s third year as a newly activated chapter. We inducted a total of twenty new members, including nine graduate students and eleven undergraduates.
In our third year as an active chapter, our goal was to increase the involvement of our existing members and push for the recruitment of new undergraduate members. To achieve this, we maintained our core volunteer events from the previous year while adding more social opportunities for present/prospective members to meet one another. We also conducted our several fundraising events, and we continue to think about ways to fund our growing chapter activities.
Among our newly elected officers for 2019-20, we are fortunate to have: four returning officers, three graduate students, six undergraduates, two international students, and an nice mix of men and women.

Being a member as well as a working as a officer for HKN, I learnt a lot of things, including leadership, working as a team, most importantly the values of giving back to your peers and community.
