News From Alumni Board: Horn Mansion Renovation Underway!
Mark Dempsey: House Corps President
It’s been 30 long years since the Horn Mansion was renovated, and our historic home is showing its age especially when compared to modern student housing available in Macomb and WIU. This isn’t a story of neglect or envy for something nicer. In our case, a fresh coat of paint, new carpeting and furniture, won’t fix underlying mechanical and moisture issues, or negate the need to install state mandated sprinklers as soon as 2019. Because our fraternity home generates the bulk of our annual revenue, and is the face of our fraternity to the community and new members, something must be done and soon before our profitability and recruiting program suffer. We’ve conservatively estimated that over 500 brothers have lived at the chapter house since the last major renovation in the 1980s. Check out the Alumni Facebook page to see construction highlights!
