The Pythagorean is the quarterly newsletter of the Iowa State Chapter of Acacia Fraternity. This newsletter is sent at no cost to all of our alumni, and families of current members. Below you can find archives of the recent Pythagoreans.
The easiest way to get involved is just to stop by for a visit. We always welcome our alumni brothers over and would be more than happy to have them join us for dinner or for any one of our brotherhood events. Feel free to call us and let us know you are coming by, or just stop by if you are in town!

Acacia Celebrates 100 Years of Leadership in 2009
With so much of today's environment having dramatically changed over the past 100 years, at least half of those Acacians that are alive today have little or no comprehension of what fraternity and educational life is like in today's world, and vice versa for the more recent members to understand living conditions in the first two-thirds of the century. In reflecting on the 100 year history of Acacia Fraternity at Iowa State College/University, the Centennial Celebration of the Iowa State Chapter was specifically designed to honor the past, celebrate the present and to plan for the future.
On March 13-15, 2009, Acacians from across the country convened in Ames, Iowa to celebrate the Iowa State Chapter's 100th Anniversary of its founding in 1909. For some, it was the first time they have been back in Ames since graduation; but for others it was "just another visit." Either way, the Centennial Celebration weekend was a walk-down memory lane for our alumni and it was a time for reflection and celebration as those memories were shared with one another and the current undergraduate brothers.
The weekend began with a social hour and dinner at the Memorial Union on Friday night. Following the dinner, the co-authors of the newly-published Acacia history book gave a historical presentation on the history of the chapter. Saturday morning there was a breakfast served at the chapter house, followed by the Alumni Board meeting. Following lunch, the newly-remodeled third floor library was dedicated along with the many awards and plaques in the library. The active members of the chapter gave walking tours of Iowa State's campus in the afternoon, which many of the alumni were thrilled to see. That evening a social hour and coin auction was held at the Memorial Union followed by the 100th Anniversary Banquet and Celebration. Members from the International Fraterntiy and the University were in attendance to help us celebrate. The banquet included awards and memories, and wrapped up with a true, pass-the-gavel in which every alumni and active member of Acacia present got to share whatever they wanted, and affirmed that they were indeed, "Acacian and Proud." Sunday morning incorporated a breakfast at the chapter house where alumni could stop by and say their goodbyes before parting ways again. It was truly a great weekend, and we as the active chapter would like to thank all of you who made the trip to come visit us for the weekend.
