The South Dakota Phi Kaps' held their annual planning retreat August 24th and 25th on the shores of Lake Okoboji, Iowa. This event marks the fourth year the retreat has been held at Lake Okoboji. The retreat allows all members to help plan the coming year's events including recruitment, philanthropy and social events. For the active members, it is a time to catch up after a summer away and come prepared for the new academic year. Members also completed profiles for the website, which can be found on the "Current Member Profiles" page. After a rainy night of camping and planning, the group left prepared for another successful year.
