Brothers, As the LSU Chapter begins its fall semester back on LSU’s campus, we are reminded of the integral role alumni serve in our chapter. We look forward to continuing to build personal and professional relationships with our alumni to truly live up to the “brotherhood of a lifetime”. I encourage each one of you to get involved with chapter functions. Whether that’s through attending a chapter meeting, providing programming support for chapter events or even stopping by to chat with some of the actives, we are eager to welcome you back into our brotherhood. ITB, Corey Spraberry, President Editor’s note: Previously named “Kimball’s Quarterly”, The Red and Buff Review will now serve alumni and students as the official alumni newsletter of the LSU Chapter.

“Realizing a desire for fellowship and intellectual association, they sought to enrich their college experience by creating among themselves a common bond; a bond that would materially assist each in the acquisition of a sound education; a bond that would provide each enduring value.” - The Cornerstone of The Delta Chi Fraternity, Inc.


Getting Back into the Swing (left to right) Corey Spraberry, Bradley Guin, Matt Murphey and Bill Waltman enjoying the LSU v. AUB tailgate.

Start of fall semester brings tailgates, socials and more. As the new semester ushers in the season of football, socials and long nights of studying, the LSU Chapter is getting back into the swing of things. With several social functions planned, in addition to home tailgates, brotherhood events and more, we look forward to what this fall semester has in store for us. We would like to extend an invitation to fellow alumni to join the Chapter for any function we may have. Whether it’s a tailgate or brotherhood event, a chapter meeting or our philanthropy event, we are eager to invite you back onto LSU’s campus and into Delta Chi’s chapter house. For specific event information, you can contact the “B”, Andrew Madary, at amadar1@tigers.lsu.edu.


“We, the members of The Delta Chi Fraternity, believing that great advantages are to be derived from a brotherhood of college and university men, appreciating that close association may promote friendship, develop character, advance justice, and assist in the acquisition of a sound education, do ordain and establish this Constitution.�
