YouTube defaults to a countdown. Once we have the stream set up from 253 closer to the start time, you’ll start seeing video/sound.

We will also be e-mailing the link out, but feel free to bookmark this page if you want to quickly get to the stream day-of.

2014 Donation Drive

We would like to raise $22,222! Please consider making a donation to the Alumni Association of Xi Chapter today!

253 Commonwealth Ave has incurred a lot of unexpected expenses this year due to unavoidable fire and safety upgrades demanded by the Boston Fire Department and Boston Inspectional Department. Your past donations have been very helpful, funding things like a thorough Fire Safety report by Code Red, the installation of crash bars on the front doors, and hiring an architect to get our roofdeck re-certified. The large number of unexpected expenses has strained AlumXi accounts, though, so we would like to raise $22,222 so we have money for any additional emergency expenses that might come our way since we’re not off the hook from the ISD and BFD yet.

Please note that this drive is really just a small push to bring the AlumXi accounts back up to a comfortable level. We are starting a larger campaign in 2015 to start paying back our loans used to build the bathrooms and the future sprinkler system overhaul. Undergraduate housebills will, of course, also be going towards paying back the loans. These large maintenance projects are funded by a joint effort between alumni and undergraduates.

We just wanted to give you all a heads up about why we will be asking for money again next year. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding!

New Front Room Decor

The new Front Room decor, in which the need for light won out of the need for purpleness.

Question: which is TEP, and which is the Grand Salon from the Hôtel de Tessé at the Met?
