Alumni House Manager Report

We have 26 people living in the house at 252 Langdon now. Next year, we have 15 signed contracts for the year. This number tends to go up toward the end of the school year as people living there now cement their plans for next semester. 6 of those signed next year are incoming freshman; this has been another banner year for the high school scholarship program.

Featured Alumnus: Darand Borneman

Darand Borneman

Darand Borneman joined DTS in the fall of 1991, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Dallas. Since then, DTS has offered him a wealth of both personal and professional relationships. A number of his closest friends were members of DTS, and even his wife of twelve years, Terri (Rolling), is a Little Sister. He and his wife now live in Milton, WI and they have two boys, Daniel Alexander and Noah Louis.

He graduated in 1995 with a BS in Food Science. Returning to the UW to complete his Masters in Food Science in 2008, his research centered on the predictive microbiology of pathogen growth in raw and ready-to-eat meat products. Darand created an interactive computer software program for use by meat processors. Models can be viewed and accessed on UW-Extension website.

Homecoming and Ballweg Recap


On Saturday October 9th, the annual Delta Theta Sigma Homecoming was held at the Chapter House at 252 Langdon. Homecoming for 2010 was a combined event with the DTS Educational Foundation's annual scholarship banquet. Those who were able to attend the game, were treated to a great Badger victory over the Minnesota Gophers, with the Wisconsin winning 41 to 23.

Good Bye Snail Mail

Twice a year the Alumni Board produces and distributes the Cornucopia in conjunction with the Active Chapter. This is a large project with myriad problems, not the least of which is the cost of mailing the finished newsletters. At roughly $1,000 per issue for printing and mailing, it takes a sizeable chunk out of our budget. It's also a slow process, because we utilize the bulk mailing system to save on postage.

Summer Picnic 2010


This year’s Summer Picnic was hosted by Jim Petersen at his beautiful

home in Columbus, WI. He was kind enough to show us his apple orchard and his flock

of sheep before lunch. There were burgers, brats, a few very tasty pasta salads, and Nick

Witte and his wife even brought a smoked salmon.

Mentorship Program Takes Off

The Mentorship Program is off to a great start, with three alumni now volunteering. Luke Piwoni has recently offered to help out one of our two History majors. Steve Rantala has the goal of becoming a history teacher, and may job-shadow Luke at his high school. Finally, Darand Borneman will be advising Michael Cayemberg on the ups and downs of the poultry industry. Mike wants to own his own business someday, hopefully on the supply side of a winery or brewery.
