Delta Chi Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001
All-Time Football Team page 2
D e l t a Chi All-Time Football Team Twenty years have passed since Delta Chi announced an all star team of its greatest college and professional stars in the Fall 1981 Quarterly. Now, with the help of alumni judges, we are pleased to again recognize those brothers who have achieved success on the gridiron. Eight of the brothers named to this new selection have made their mark in the last two decades, including two who played in the NFL in 2000. Among our judges were Jacksonville Jaguars Senior Vice President/Football O p e r a t i o n s Michael Huyghue, Cornell ’84, and past “AA” Larry Nothnagel, Northeast Missouri ’79, whose football background includes coaching high school football. Leading the offensive platoon at quarterback is current ESPN analyst Sean Salisbury, Southern California ’85. As a three year starter for the Trojans, he completed 346 of 602 for

4,481 yards and 25 touchdowns, followed by a 10 year pro career with the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers. In 1988, he helped lead the Blue Bombers to the Canadian Football League crown, then completed 293 of 595 for 4,049 yards and 26 TDs the following season. Sean’s pro career totals were 711 of 1,374 for 9,439 yards and 56 scores. Joining Sean in the backfield are two returnees from the 1981 selections. The first player chosen in the 1938 NFL draft, Corby Davis, Indiana ’38, was an AllAmerican and Big 10 MVP in 1937. He played in the East-West Shrine Game and College All-Star Game before joining the Cleveland Rams for four pro years (1938-41). Harrison “Boss” Weeks, Michigan ’03, guided the Wolverines’ legendary “point-a-minute” teams of 1901-02. The 1901 team was 10-0 (including a 49-0 win in the first Rose Bowl); scored 501 points; and shutout every opponent. He was team captain and a second team All-American for the 11-0 Michigan squad, which scored 644 points while allowing just 12.
By Jay Langhammer Three-time All-American Chuck Kassel, Illinois ’27, leads the receivers. The 1926 Illini captain, he joined the NFL Chicago Bears, Frankford Yellow Jackets and Chicago Cardinals for seven seasons, playing 79 games between 1927 and 1933 and being an All-NFL second team pick in 1930. Henry Stanton, Arizona ’42, was a Little All-American after leading the nation with a record 50 receptions for 820 yards during the 1941 season. An AllBorder Conference choice in 1940-41, he played in the East-West Shrine Game and is a charter member of the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame. Hampton Pool, Stanford ’40, was a five year pro with the Chicago Bears (1940-43) and Miami Seahawks of the All-American Football Conference (1946), playing both tight end and defensive end. He played in two Pro Bowls and four straight NFL championship games for the Bears, scoring a TD in the 1940 memorable 73-0 win over the Washington Redskins. Hampton later was head coach of the Chicago Rockets (1947), Los Angeles Rams (195254) and CFL Toronto Argonauts (1957-59). Pro Football Hall of Fame tackle Ron Mix, Southern California ’60, was named to the Alltime AFL Team, earning All-AFL honors nine times during an 11 year, 142 game career with the San Diego Chargers. Before turning pro, he was a 1959 All-American and is in the USC Athletic Hall of Fame. Our other tackle, Shar Pourdanesh, Nevada-Reno ’93, was CFL Most Outstanding Lineman in 1994 for the CFL champion Baltimore Stallions and AllEastern Division for the Stallions in 1995. He has since played for the Washington Redskins (1996-98) and Pittsburgh Steelers (1999-2000). Both offensive guards are holdovers from the 1981 first team. Bruno Banducci, Stanford ’43, played for the “Wow Boys” 1941 Rose Bowl squad then played 12 pro seasons and 131 games for the Philadelphia Eagles (194445), San Francisco 49ers (1946-54) and Toronto Argonauts (1955).

He was named as a defensive lineman on the Iowa All-Time Team chosen last fall. Tackle Don Thorp, Illinois ’84, was Big 10 MVP and an All-American after posting 90 tackles in 1983. He played in the Senior Bowl and Hula Bowl prior to three NFL seasons with New Orleans (1984), Indianapolis (198788) and Kansas City (1988). Don was named to the Illinois All-Century Team chosen in 1990. End-tackle Nolan Harrison, Indiana ’90, was on the All-Big 10 second team before beginning a 10 year NFL career with the Raiders (1991-96), Steelers (1997-99) and Redskins (2000). Over 128 regular season games, he has had 83 starts and 22 sacks. After earning All-American and All-Big 10 honors in 1976, linebacker Scott Studwell, Illlinois ’77, who posted 342 career tackles, played in the East-West Shrine Game and Hula Bowl. He joined the Minnesota Vikings for 14 seasons (1977-90) and 201 regular season contests. Scott was named to the All-NFL second team in 1988, played in two Pro Bowls and had 11 career interceptions. Jack Del Rio, Southern California ’85, was an All-Pacific-10 linebacker in 1982-83 then won All-American honors and the Pop Warner Award in 1984. He was named 1985 Rose Bowl Co-Player of the Game and also played in the East-West Shrine Game and Japan Bowl. Jack then played 11 NFL seasons and 160 games with New Orleans (1985-86), Kansas City (1987-88), Dallas (1989-91) and Minnesota (1992-95). He played in one Pro
Bowl, was on the 1985 NFL All-Rookie Team, made the All-NFC second team in 1994 and had 13 career interceptions for 128 yards and three TDs. He has served the NFL champion Baltimore Ravens as linebackers coach the last two seasons after two seasons with the Saints. Two members of the College Football Hall of Fame round out our linebacking crew. Gust Zarnas, Ohio State ’38, earned All-American honors in 1937 and played in the East-West Shrine Game and College All-Star Game. He later played three NFL seasons with the Bears, Packers and the football Brooklyn Dodgers and went to one Pro Bowl. Chuck Taylor, Stanford ’43, was a member of the “Wow Boys” 1941 Rose Bowl squad, earned AllAmerican honors in 1942 and played for the AAFC Miami Seahawks in 1946. He later became a successful head coach (1951-57) and athletic director (1963-72) at his alma mater. Chuck was Coach of the Year in 1952 and led Stanford to the Rose Bowl. Leading the defensive backfield is Dave Whitsell, Indiana ’58, who carved out a fine 12 year, 161 game NFL career with the Lions (1958-60), Bears (1961-66) and Saints (1967-69). He earned All-NFL second team honors and played in the Pro Bowl after leading with 10 interceptions for 178 yards in 1967. In his career, Dave had 46 interceptions for 662 yards and four TDs. Curtis Sanders, Kentucky ’25, captained the Wildcats‘ 1924 team and is still considered as one of the school’s alltime greats. He was the team’s top defensive back for four straight seasons. Otto Schnellbacher, Kansas ’48, earned AllBig 7 honors in 1946-47 as an end and defensive back, then led the AAFC with 11 interceptions for 239 yards while playing for the football New York Yankees. After the AAFC folded, he moved to the NFL with the New York Giants in 1950, earning All-NFL honors twice and leading the league with 11 interceptions for 194 yards in 1951. Otto posted 34 career interceptions for 558 yards and three TDs during his four pro seasons. Kicker John Ivanic, Northern Illinois ’91, is his school’s career leader with 253 points and 46 field goals. He booted 18 field goals in 1987, had four field goals in a game versus Wisconsin in 1989 and earned All-American honorable mention in 1990. In 1999, John was named to the Northern Illinois All-Century Team. Punter Troy Richardson, Southern California ’86, ranks among the Trojans’ career leaders with 122 punts for a 40.5 average. A two year regular, he played in the Rose Bowl and Aloha Bowl. A number of other fine players are deserving of mention for their contributions to the game. Quarterbacks of note include four year starter Cecil Coleman, Arizona State ’50 (later a successful athletic director); Jamie Gill, Texas Tech ’92, who ranks fifth in career passing yardage with 3,280 yards; Tom Poholsky, Iowa ’90, who threw for 1,329 career yards; Chip Hilleary, Kansas ’93, a 1992 All-Big 8 selection who threw for 4,568 career yards; Kurt Steger, Illinois ’78, who threw for 2,733 career yards; and Kyle Wachholtz, Southern California ’96, who was with the Packers in 1996-97.

CAMPUS SCENE ABRACADABRA COLONY When Delta Chi decided to come back to Berkeley this past spring, there was no guarantee of success. Four leadership consultants had the task of talking to prospective students and encouraging them to join. Over the course of a two-week informational period, the consultants had gathered a large number of possible members, and by the end of the monthlong selection process, the final 24 members had been chosen. Unlike other Delta Chi Chapters, which are named after their school, our name derives from a different source. In the mid-1960s, when fraternity recruitment was steadily decreasing, Delta Chi encouraged the former California Chapter, in an effort to survive, to merge with a local fraternity. That local fraternity was called the Abracadabra Fraternity, and was only to be found on the Berkeley campus. As part of the merger of the two, Delta Chi authorized the California Chapter to initiate all the Abracadabra members, young and old alike at no charge and accepted the name “Abracadabra” as the chapter’s name. Unfortunately, even with the increased number of men in the chapter, Delta Chi could not survive the anti-establishment feeling of the era that targeted fraternities as places of strict conformity. The chapter closed its doors in 1968 for the first time in its history. However, in 1978, another group of determined men started up the chapter. This creation would last 16 years until the chapter had to once again shut its doors. Now, once again, the Abracadabra Colony has reorganized and is as determined as ever to become the best fraternity on campus. The future of Delta Chi looks extremely bright. We have a core group of guys who are serious about the ritual, traditions, and values for which Delta Chi stands. 4 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001
“Everyone is working together to make this fraternity the strongest it has been in decades and I personally believe that this can be accomplished within a few years,” said “F” Steven Rhorer. One early goal for the colony is to obtain its charter. This charter would encapsulate everything that we stand for and would act as a guide for future generations of Delta Chis. We are also determined to make a positive impact on not just our brothers, but the Greek community as a whole. “Our past has taught us that in order to survive, we must adapt to the needs of the community; the leaders of which comprise the brothers of the Greek community,” said “A” Joseph Enayati. “ Abracadabra is going to change the fraternity scene on this campus. We are going to renovate fraternities, change the mentality and attitudes towards fraternities, and maximize the unique potential contained within fraternities and the brotherhood which lies within them.” In order to better help its brothers, the colony will hand out scholarships worth up to $10,000 dollars to different members for academic and philanthropic achievement. Not only that, but we have also determined that helping out its external community, such as the city of Berkeley and Bay Area as a whole, will be a top priority. “We are looking for men who are going to put their heart and soul into the fraternity. We want members who realize the importance of academic achievement and have respect for the school and the community as a whole” said Matt Bendett, Chair of the Associate Member Committee. In the same semester it was brought back, the Abracadabra Colony has already recruited three associates who will be initiated, and plans are for a very large incoming class in the fall. With a great deal of effort
being put into establishing the colony on campus and in the community, our goals are clear and we do not intend on closing our doors again.
ALABAMA Teaming with Kappa Alpha Theta, we finished second in Greek Week. Two weeks of diligent work by all made our 56th annual Indian Party a success far beyond what was expected. We also hosted the International Students Association spring party as our newest philanthropy project. Brandon Hill and Steven Yates are two of newest members of the University’s Avanti team, an orientation team for incoming freshmen. In addition, Steven Yates is a new member of the Capstone Men and Women. As we continue to grow, we have started a new incentive for academic achievement. Two, one-time, $500 scholarships are going to be awarded to incoming freshmen who exemplify academic achievement and community involvement. Looking ahead to the summer, rush is the major task at hand. With this in mind, we have three major rush parties planned. Jim Merrill ‘58 has agreed to host a rush party in Huntsville and Paul Barnett ‘75 is hosting another rush party in Mobile. The third will be held in Tuscaloosa at the house.
APPALACHIAN STATE We are pleased to have seven associates who, along with the rest of us, are excited about reestablishing this chapter as the best on campus. We have a number of young guys and a core of older guys who are primed and ready to help this chapter grow and shine on campus and in the community. We have also had a number of alumni who have been there for us as we have gone through some changes to recommit ourselves and our chapter to liv-
ing up to the values and beliefs of Delta Chi. We have participated in numerous projects to help our community and those less fortunate. We worked with the Adopt-a-Highway program, the annual Tiger Cub Snow box, a diaper drive, and a canned food drive among other things this semester. This not only helps out others but it also helps us as brothers to strengthen the bond we share. In intramurals, we are currently ranked in second place in all-university points. We also picked up the Pickle Ball Championship along with a second place finished in flag football and volleyball.
ARIZONA STATE COLONY With a current membership of 25, we are filled with dreams and desires to make Delta Chi a strong influence on campus. We were initiated on February 17, 2001 with the aid of the Arizona Chapter and since then we have participated in three philanthropies; Kappa Kappa Gamma’s Kick off, Delta Gamma’s Anchor Splash and Chi Omega’s “Catch a Chi-O.” We have also volunteered our time to Mahnah Gala’s fundraiser that raised over $65,000 for battered women and deprived children. We were also able to attend the Region II Leadership Conference held at the Long Beach Chapter. We are blessed to have a strong ABT that has done a number of things to help us get on our feet, and invaluable alumni support whom are all more than willing to help in every way possible. Russ Gunther ’89 and Todd Mastrorilli ’97 have devoted countless hours to our success, which is greatly appreciated. In only two months we have been able to pull together and focus on our charter as well as forming a volleyball team that went to the final round in intramurals
and a softball team that has defeated four of the biggest fraternities on campus. We are currently in the process of writing our by-laws and our AMC program to prepare for fall rush. Our Housing Committee is now trying to get housing set up hopefully for next year. We will be starting next year by helping the freshmen move into their dorms in early August. We are rushing in September and in October we are planning a Founders’ Day banquet in conjunction with the parents who will be here for parents’ weekend, allowing them to meet some of our alumni. Next year we plan on having our very first philanthropy, an alumni golf tournament, and White Carnation formal while focusing mainly on the attainment of our charter.
AUBURN This spring marked our first spring on the semester system. Due to the shortened number of months, there was more to do during each weekend. We continued our philanthropic activities with Valentine’s parties, Easter, and many other activities. Our annual Kimball Classic Golf Tournament for the alumni was again very successful with numerous alumni returning to the plains to share memories and to play a little golf. Deltiki, our annual
weeklong party went off without a hitch, giving the brothers a few days to unwind and enjoy the time away from studying. This spring also marks our third consecutive All-Sports Trophy. Academically, we marked our second consecutive term to be listed in the top five. Our latest house renovations, which include a new basement and chapter room, will be completed by mid summer.
year. This tournament is promising to be bigger than last year’s. The tournament is always a great way to meet new people and introduce the freshmen to the campus. Another event in the works is our Summer Alumni weekend. We are hoping that the chapter can bring back alumni during the summer in order to increase participation in the following years.
Our first annual soccer philanthropy to benefit the American Cancer Society was held with five fraternities and three sororities participating. The games kicked off at 1:00 in the afternoon and continued until 5:00. The final game ended in a five-minute overtime and a final shoot-out. We also participated in Greek Week, a weeklong event to promote Greek unity. This year’s theme was “The Week Zeus Let Loose.” We were paired with the ladies of Alpha Phi for the week’s activities that included Assassination Survivor, Lip Sync, Home-run Derby, Greek Olympics, and the Beta 500. Awards were given out for different events and an overall week winner was selected. This year, our participants won Best Dressed for dressing up as mobsters for
Our eleventh annual formal brought back alumni from all over including “AA” Bill Williams. Efforts have been underway to abolish the first semester rush restriction that is present on campus. This would allow for rush in 2001 to be larger and also allow Greek life to become more prevalent. Justin Hays and Thomas Orlando were each elected to IFC executive board positions and they have been trying to make positive changes to the Greek system. The last major event held on campus was the annual Greek Awards Convocation in which we pulled in many recognition awards. With the end of the semester we started planning for our Third Annual Soccer Tournament, which is put on at the beginning of each new school

Assassination Survivor. Along with the Alpha Phis we won Most Spirit, second place for Lip Sync, and second in Greek Olympics. Last but not least, we brought home the trophy for overall Greek Week winners. Congratulations to everyone who participated and supported our guys!
CAL POLY One of our biggest goals is to try to improve our alumni relations. We have had brotherhood events with some local alumni, including barbecues at the main house and road trips to Tahoe and Las Vegas. Our biggest alumni event, however, was the Delta Chi Annual Alumni Golf Tournament in April. Over 30 alumni attended this two-day event, which is also our biggest fundraiser. The event consisted of a barbecue at the main house Friday night in honor of all the visiting alumni. The following Saturday morning began with an 18 hole golf tournament at Dairy Creek Golf Course, followed by the alumni and awards dinner at night. This one weekend raised over $1,000. This spring we took fourth in Greek Week with Alpha Gamma Rho and Sigma Kappa. Key events were swimming, inner-tube water polo, bowling, and trap shooting (in which we took first place by far). Spring quarter marked the beginning for Brent Vann to campaign for Cal Poly’s Associated Students, Inc. President.

The word at Central Missouri Delta Chi this spring was philanthropy. One of our first events was ushering for the Theater Department. The next big event was making Valentine’s Day cards with the ladies of Alpha Gamma Delta for the local nursing home. Soon, Easter was upon us and we teamed up with the Big Brothers and Sisters of Warrensburg and held an Easter egg hunt. Our last event was having a clean up day at the Historical Society of Warrensburg. On March 31, 2001 we had Alumni Weekend with over 135 alumni ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001 5
returning home to Warrensburg. The First Annual Kimble Golf Classic was held with 60 alumni and actives taking part.
CORNELL In intramural sports, our bowling team finished with the leading win-loss record of 8-1, but fell short of gold in an incredibly close single game differential. In wrestling, Jonathan Kaplan ’02 easily reached the finals but fell to a tough opponent. Former “A” Tim Sharp ’02 reached the semifinals in the tennis bracket. Our indoor soccer team returned as defending champions, easily making its way into the playoffs. Finally, our indoor floor hockey team had reached the finals as of this writing. We would also like to welcome our 11 new brothers. The newly initiated brothers led a project to renovate the coatroom and install a new computerized sound system in the house. Lastly, we would like to congratulate our alumni and friends who earned Delta Chi an award for an outstanding faculty fellow program.
DEPAUW We spent our formal in the beautiful mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. There, we enjoyed horseback riding and white water rafting. That
evening, the dance was one of the best in memory. When we returned, we started to gear up for school with our annual Little 5 Race. Our bike team members were, Zachary Boardman, Glenn McCain, Andrew Coffin, and captain Brandon Emkes. We earned a lot of respect by coming in a very close second. The most recent event was a philanthropy in which the entire campus participated. Relay for Life is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and is a 24-hour walking relay. Its goal is to spread information about cancer as well as to honor survivors and remember the victims. This year we were out in full force as a student died last week from cancer and we decided to honor her memory during this event.
EMBRY-RIDDLE We have been actively pursuing a Greek Row at EmbryRiddle. Thanks to the combined efforts of many of our undergraduate and alumni brothers, the dream may soon become a reality. We are participating in fundraising events, such as the Daytona 500 and the Orlando Rage (XFL) home football games, to help fund a new house. We started the semester off with the Region VIII Leadership Conference in January. Representatives from 16 chap-
ters attended for a weekend of fun and leadership seminars. We are grateful for the opportunity to have been able to host the conference and we thank everyone for attending. In philanthropy we continued our Adopt-a-Highway program in front of the school along Clyde Morris Blvd. We also have been volunteering at the Braille Library. Our biggest event was the Relay for Life, which was an event to raise money for cancer research in which brothers walked for 18 straight hours to help raise funds to find a cure for cancer. At the end of the year, EmbryRiddle awarded the chapter with the Eagle Service Award.
FLORIDA We came back to the Florida campus with a big bang last semester. Beginning with what was arguably the most successful rush on the campus, we were very proud to obtain a group of 24 men to carry our chapter into the future. Our brothers were busy both on campus and in the community. As the semester forged on, we succeeded victoriously in every philanthropy we entered, a feat unmatched by any other chapter on campus. We continued our success during Greek Week as our canned food drive raised over $2000 for local homeless shelters. Furthermore, Delta Chi lead
UF in educating fraternities and sororities on risk management, alcohol abuse and sexual harassment issues. Along with the chapter ’s accomplishments, there are several undergraduates, as well as alumni, who deserve distinct recognition. “D” Aaron Bernstein, recently had the honor of having a scholarship named after him. The Aaron Bernstein Scholarship Award will be presented annually to UF’s most dedicated organization president. This honor was given to him based on his dedication in Savant UF, a progressive honor society encompassing leadership skills and training at Florida. Two of our distinguished alumni, Congressman Dan Miller and Congressman John L. Mica, were also recently reelected.
FREDONIA Last fall, we had our 9th annual Delta Chi banquet, which had some surprises in store for us. We would like to thank “AA” Bill Williams for speaking at this occasion. Our numbers just keep getting bigger and bigger. Our spring was the most memorable. With our numbers at 47 we dominated Greek Week by winning almost every event and taking home the trophy. That night we had our Greek Week banquet with all the fraternities and sororities present. Christopher Dobson was awarded Outstanding Greek of the Year. We are putting together a housing foundation so Delta Chi can possibly be the first fraternity at Fredonia with its own house. Everyone in Fredonia is realizing that there is no other way to go than Delta Chi.

We initiated seven associates, which puts us just above the average size for our campus. We improved our scholarship dramatically, as our G.P.A. is now 2 points above the all-male average and 2nd among fraternities. We swept Greek Week by earning top honors in flag football, spirit and house decorations. We also
won lip sync and earned a Greek Week banner for best theme. We helped elect two of our members to A.S.I. positions in addition to the two members who are currently serving on the IFC Executive Council. One was to the position A.S. Vice President. We were also represented at our 2001 Regional Leadership Conference in Long Beach, and participated in The Road Chair Exchange Program. We have grabbed hold of our campus, and are looking forward to chartering in the near future.
GANNON Recently, Jeremy Ballero was elected Student Government Association President, winning by a two-thirds margin. Congratulations are also in order for Adam Griffith who was first runner up in the Gannon Greek God competition. Also during Greek Week, our chapter won the annual Lip Sync competition. But more important than individual accomplishments, was the recent celebration of our 30th anniversary. At our White Carnation formal we were lucky enough to have two of our founding fathers, Brad Colwell, and Mike Dancison in attendance. We were also fortunate enough to have “AA” Bill Williams in attendance. The night was spent reliving the past, enjoying the present, and optimistically predicting the future strength of our chapter. We would like to thank all the alumni who joined us in celebrating our 30th anniversary.
GEORGIA TECH Our first decade approached its end this past April at our 10th Anniversary Chartering Banquet. The festivities included an alumni-undergrad golf tournament, an elegant black tie banquet highlighted with speeches by several Delta Chi VIP’s, and of course a dance party lasting until the early morning hours. This event marked the pinnacle of an amazing year that saw a best-ever second place finish in Homecoming, the crowning of one of our own as Mr. Georgia Tech, as well as a strong show-

Last year, we placed 2nd in four intramural sports including softball, volleyball, 5’ 9’’ and under basketball, and football.
IDAHO What an exciting semester. Most notable of all our achievements was being the recipient of the Campus Excellence Award, a distinguished university award given to the most outstanding Greek chapter. We also finished second in the running for intramurals, third in the annual Pi Beta Phi Arrow Challenge philanthropy and initiated 17 new members. Thanks to Matt Jessup and Timm Heimgartner, we reformed our ABT, working under the leadership effort of Tim McMurtrey and Dave Rudeen. We also added new members to Kappa Delta, our housing corporation. New members will assist Dick Shisler in our upcoming plans to make improvements to our house property and structure. Thanks to past “E” and current chapter “A” Jesse Uhlorn, we have sustained his adopt-a-room program, which added two newly refurbished study rooms. Regional conference was also held here and we hope that all the Region I brothers had as great of a time as we did. As always our 67th annual Pirates Dance was held on April 27th and provided a memorable experience for all.
ILLINOIS Delta Chi and Alpha Gamma Rho co-hosted a party where three different bands played and 3000 or more people attended.
IOWA Some of the events that highlighted our late spring were Greek Week, Alumni Weekend, and Parents’ Weekend. All were successes. First of all, Greek Week was probably the year ’s crowning achievement. This year the chapter decided to go all out. We worked hard on all the aspects of the week. In the end we came out with an overall first place finish! Quite an achievement. We were also lucky to be paired with two other chapters who shared our enthusiasm. Our pairing had the first and second place overall finishes for men’s chapters, and the first place for women’s. Next, we had a successful parent’s weekend. Some of our active parents did a lot over this weekend to strengthen our still new parents’ club. We look forward to them being a strong and positive influence in the future. Also, with our spring associate member classes totaling eight new initiates, it was nice for their parents to see more of the chapter and meet people. The other event of the semester was alumni weekend. We played golf, shared stories, and planned for the future of the chapter. One thing that stood out was our developing scholarship fund. Some of our alumni are working to start a substantial fund for incoming freshman scholarships.
Also, over the summer we are having recruitment events all over the Midwest, and hope after this past year’s success, formal recruitment will be very solid. We have members attending the Henry M. Jackson Leadership College, members working as Formal Recruitment week counselors, and Interfraternity Council leaders.
JACKSONVILLE STATE We won the Greek All Sports Trophy by winning the final event, the Intramural Softball Tournament. We also held our spring formal, “The Manners’ Ball”. The event is held to honor Lee Manners who was our local chapter founder. It was a very successful evening. We are also making plans to remodel our house during the summer.
KANSAS CITY We have been making great strides in becoming the best fraternity on campus. Perhaps the biggest achievement was initiating Bobby Watson on April 8th. Watson is a Grammy award winning jazz saxophonist. In addition to this, we also have the highest men’s GPA. Our 3.16 also beat the average UMKC student and the national all fraternity average. On May 12th we celebrated being the oldest chapter on campus with our 45th anniversary. The activities included a golf tournament and a dinner. This event was a big hit; many alumni, including some of the Bounders, the local fraternity that became Delta Chi, were involved in this event. This, however, is not the only event that ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001 7
coordinated the event. Also in attendance were “AA” Bill Williams, “CC” Michael Woolbright, Regent Steve Bossart and Monte Johnson. There was an excellent turnout from 14 of the Region’s chapters.
Kent State Delta Chi’s Chariot team. has had immense alumni support, another big event for the alumni is the Grizzbowl. This is an annual football game held on Superbowl Sunday between the actives and alumni. This year the actives beat the alumni four touchdowns to one.
KANSAS STATE We had our annual Mother’s Day banquet and auction at the house, raising over $2,800. Members also participated in earthball, our philanthropy with Kappa Kappa Gamma. We also had our first ever alumni weekend. Included in this weekend’s events were the Sigma Class initiation, the Kansas State football spring game, the Don Edward Memorial Golf tournament and an alumni/brotherhood banquet. Also, as a part of the weekend, we inducted the Founding Father class of the newly established Order of the Purple Martlet. The Order was created to honor and recognize alumni who have distinguished themselves through their tireless efforts on behalf of the Chapter. Founding Brothers were Craig Shove ’65, Ed Redhair ’65, Tom Hunter ’66, Bill Young ’66, Tom Haney ’67, Jan Rayl ’67, Mike Dichiser ’92, and Aaron Otto ’94. The Order members will nomi8 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001
nate new members as appropriate and each new member will be recognized with a purple martlet lapel pin, plaque and a photo in the formal room of our house. Socially we kept busy as well, holding functions with Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Xi Delta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Alpha Theta and Alpha Delta Pi. We also had two date parties, one of which was our Hawaiian-theme Del Tiki party in May. Our softball team made the play-offs, and our 3-on-3 basketball and horseshoes teams made the finals. We had three members participate in collegiate athletics. Kevin Sloop and Jacob Eisenbie participated in the National Collegiate Wrestling Championships in Dallas where Jacob achieved All-American status. Travis Horchem had an outstanding spring game for the K-State football team, making second string.
KENT STATE Congratulations to Justin Donnelly for his election to the position of Judicial Affairs on our campus’ IFC board. Joshua Brunger, one of our seniors whose major is music education, held his final trombone concert solo. We hosted the Region VI Leadership Conference. Daniel Russell “A”, planned and
We began the semester by taking home first place in the Song Fest competition during Greek Week. Along with Song Fest, we have also received one of the highest GPA and assessment ratings among fraternities on campus. Our team also finished first among fraternities in Tri-Delta’s annual “Triple Play” softball tournament. Socially we have kept busy with parties with Chi Omega, Delta Gamma, Delta Zeta, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kappa Kappa Gamma sororities. Our yearly “Lost Memory” bus trip also turned out to be an excellent event. We distributed three-point flyers at all home basketball games to support “Coaches vs. Cancer”, which we have adopted from the American Cancer Society. We also participated in LSU’s “Raking the Lakes” in an effort to protect our campus. We are anxious to see the improvements to our kitchen and dining areas because the university is completely remodeling this part of our house. For more information about the LSU chapter please visit http://www. lsudeltachi.com.
LONG BEACH We have been improving scholastically and this year was no exception as we placed seven men on the President’s List with 4.0’s, a new high for us. The annual Family Day was a success with many of our brothers and their families in town for the event. It was coupled with the school’s Homecoming celebration and basketball game. This has evolved into a successful combination of Delta Chi and Long Beach State excitement. We have a new position in the fraternity, Webmaster! Check out his newest work at www.deltachi longbeach.com for an assortment of pictures and updates.
LOUISIANA TECH In rush, we pulled in nine guys in the fall with a 100% retention rate and, for spring, two associates. We have also participated in several community projects that gained us recognition in the community. Along with all our hard work we have also had a blast this year with parties, exchanges, and road trips. Our social events have been hitting a high note this past year.
MISSISSIPPI STATE In January, we sent six brothers to the Region VIII Leadership Conference at Embry-Riddle and they came back with great ideas which we have already begun to initiate. The weekend after spring break saw our spring alumni event called Wet ‘N’ Wild during super bulldog weekend. We had a great turnout of alumni, family, and friends. We enjoyed a giant crawfish boil, sand volleyball, and remembrances of old times. We then had our annual spring formal in New Orleans. Our White Carnation Ball was a great time to get together and enjoy a night on the town in the historic French Quarter. “A” Ray Smith was named our “Active of the Year” and Patrick Launy was named “Alumnus of the Year.” We ended the spring with our first Powder Puff Flag Football Game between Chi Omega and Phi Mu where we raised over $2,500 dollars for the Sheriff’s Girls and Boys Ranch in Columbus, Mississippi. Although the Chi Omegas were victorious in the game, we were all successful in our efforts for our philanthropy.
MINNESOTA Paired with Delta Gamma and FarmHouse in the annual Spring Jam festivities held by the university, we joined together to have an incredible week. Our softball and ultimate frisbee teams played well and our band was the highlight of the afternoon. May also witnessed our annual heartbreaker competition and Duluth Trek. The entire
week was exciting and fun-filled. From interviews to karaoke to a little bike riding there is something for everyone. The level of participation demonstrated by everyone was great. The highlight of the semester was definitely our Founders’/ Parents’ Day event. The day’s events began with house tours and campus tours and culminated with a pig roast and social time. It was great to see the alumni return for this event, but it was equally exciting to demonstrate what Delta Chi means to us in front of our parents. It is sure to become an annual event at the chapter.
MONTCLAIR We are proud to boast our eleventh Greek Week victory in the twelve years of our existence. Tim Fox, a member of the most recent Psi class, placed first in the first event. There was no turning back from there. We remained in first place for the remainder of Greek Week. We also dethroned the Greek Week talent show champions with our rendition of Willy Wonka’s Umpa Lumpa song as our theme. The chapter as a whole has set a standard of being the best fraternity on campus. “A” James McGowan was an inspiration to all the newcomers in showing what it takes to excel. On the intramural scene, we did well in both basketball and soccer. With the leadership of B.G. Daniel, we won the intramural whiffleball championship. Alan Harrison, Robert Baxter, and Johnny Vacca participated in our feed the homeless event by providing the homeless of New York City with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
NEW HAVEN We celebrated our 20th anniversary by hosting the Region VII Leadership Conference. We would like to thank the other chapters and alumni who attended this special event. Attending chapters/colony include Cornell, Hobart, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Montclair, Gorham , Bryant, Rutgers, Rowan and Stony Brook.
NORTH CAROLINA STATE We ripped the slopes of Winterplace, West Virginia in February. In April we sponsored our annual alumni golf tournament. Our members raised money for the March of Dimes during the spring. The brothers have made improvements in landscaping to our property, and rooms in our chapter house will be remodeled over the summer. NCSU alumni are beginning to get ready for Homecoming and Founders’ Day events in the fall. Please contact Jimmy Destephens “E” at jbdestep @unity.ncsu.edu for information on upcoming events.
NORTHEAST MISSOURI Our 25th Anniversary of colonization was a great success. At our ABT meeting and banquet we had Founding Fathers Scott Patterson, past “AA” Larry Nothnagel, and John Holke in attendance as
well as 85 other brothers and guests. Our guest speaker, David Clithero, ’83, spoke of new hope and direction for the chapter, as our ABT put together a joint venture with the chapter and our alumni to begin plans for a new house. Major house improvements have been completed this semester and will continue over the summer. These include a remodeled kitchen and bathroom and carpeting the upstairs area, as well as a new layout for the main living room and lounge area. We are also officially out of debt with Delta Chi and stand at 36 active members. Please help and do your part to support your chapter and donate time, money, or support to our efforts in getting a new house.
NORTHWESTERN Our growth in numbers and strength continued this quarter with the initiation of 12 members and saw three of our own elected to executive committee positions on IFC. Former “A” Phil Ordway, was elected to IFC president, James Foster, former “F” was elected vice president of public relations and Ayan Bagchi was elected vice president of programming. We have continued our efforts in philanthropy by holding a sand castle building tournament on the beach of Lake Michigan. The contest was judged by Northwestern art
professors and other faculty. We’re also looking forward to our traditional Earthball philanthropy in the fall. We added to our alumni programming and invited all of our brothers to our first spring alumni/chapter softball game and barbecue on April 29th. All who attended had a great time, and hopefully this event will be continued in the future.
NORTHERN ARIZONA We began the spring with the largest pledge class on campus and initiated six men. Last fall brought in our largest pledge class ever with 29 initiates. Along with bringing in our new members, several modifications to the house have been made. Not only was the entire house recarpeted and repainted, we were also able to construct a new back fence that a record year of snow was able to wear down. We were among the top fraternities on campus with total philanthropy hours. Roughly ten of our actives were also little league basketball coaches with one team even taking first place. The IFC/Panhellenic put on the annual “Greek Week” activities in April. We basically cleaned house in nearly all the events with our partners, the women of Gamma Phi Beta and the men of Alpha Tau Omega. About 12 men were invited into the Order of Omega.
MONTEVALLO Delta Chi claims Top Campus Leadership Positions! On March 21, 2001, three brothers were elected to SGA executive offices. Amos Snead ’02 was elected President, Jason Britt ’02 was elected Treasurer, and J.B. Hutchison ’02 was elected University Programs Coordinator. The chapter also won the IFC Presidency for the second straight year with Alex Igou ’03 currently holding the position.

We also have to mention our spring formal “Del Tiki.” We spent an amazing four-day weekend in Lake Havasu. Of course most of the time was spent on the two 56-foot houseboats.
NORTHERN ILLINOIS Our Housing Corporation has continued to work with our members and our ABT to make plans for kitchen renovations and adding a dining room. Due to the number living in next year, we will have approximately $20,000 to put towards these housing renovations. This spring we also initiated five men. Finally, we had a successful formal in Iowa City and would like to thank the Iowa brothers for showing our members their wonderful house. We did well in Delta Gamma’s Anchor Splash competition, pairing up with the ladies of Sigma Sigma Sigma. We also participated in Sigma Phi Epsilon’s Tugs competition. This was the first year that we sponsored a child for the MakeA-Wish Foundation, helping to send a local child with a terminal kidney disease to Walt Disney World with his family. We also went around the community this spring to Trick-orTreat for canned goods to donate to the DeKalb Food Pantry, gathering hundreds of pounds of canned and dry goods for the needy. Finally, we held the First Annual Delta Chi for a Day Auction. In this fundraiser, we auctioned off members to perform chores for other students in exchange for a winning bid.
NORTHERN IOWA We started out this semester by continuing to shovel
sidewalks for the elderly and the handicapped people in Cedar Valley. We also held a party/auction where we raised money for the Cedar Valley Hospice House. Once the weather was a little warmer, we participated in the first annual Spring Fling where we took home first prize in the house decorating competition along with the help of the Alpha Phis and Pikes. Later in the spring we competed in Greek Week. We put in a good showing and received second place in overall participation. The spring highlight was our annual formal held on March 31st. We had over 50 alumni, actives and guests in attendance. This was the prelude to our Founders’ Day celebration on April 3rd in which we celebrated our 31st year. The ABT and Housing Corporation, along with the actives, have been working hard at making improvements to the house.
OHIO STATE Many members rallied together to support a worthy cause in Kappa Delta’s annual hockey tournament philanthropy, “Slapshot.” Our team had fun and surpassed expectations by making it to the finals. Delta Chi is sponsoring an Ultimate Frisbee tournament, headed by chairman Sam Rosen. All sororities can and are encouraged to enter teams and provide funds for the “Make A Wish Foundation.” The rest of our chapter has been assigned to coach designated sorority teams, and we are looking forward to another fun event before summer that is also for a worthy cause.
OLD DOMINION We are currently rebuilding and have some great new guys here. The chapter is in high spirits and ready to move forward. The first Delta Chi Clothing Drive was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who helped keep the less fortunate in Norfolk warm during the winter.
PENN STATE Recently, some of our brothers spent grueling days and nights collecting money for kids with cancer in coordination with Dance Marathon – not only a student-led philanthropy, but the biggest student-led philanthropy in the world. Teamed up with a sorority and led by Milan Hemrajani ’02 and John Chan ’02, we spent long hours on the cold streets ranging from Fairfax, Virginia to Newton, Massachusetts canning and counting all change received. In total, we received over $80,000 dollars from outside contributors including businesses, friends, family and others. We also enjoyed Parents’ Weekend and Spring Week. Both were astounding. Parents came and dined at the second largest fraternity house on the campus while brothers served their families chef prepared meals. Spring Week included our teaming up with Kappa Delta for four days of fun.
PURDUE Our #1 softball team came in first place on the entire campus. Once again we had a successful Mom’s Weekend with over 100 parents in attendance on April 7th for the annual event. The 44th Grand Prix Race, a kart race at Purdue,
North Carolina State undergraduates and alumni during the Alumni Golf Tournament Weekend. 10 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001
was held April 21st. Adam Kasick and Nick Watt participated in the race. Adam was knocked out of first place with mechanical problems that led to him leaving the race, and Nick took home the second place trophy with an aggressive comeback from a 7th place start. We were paired with the women of Zeta Tau Alpha for the week of Grand Prix. Our philanthropy Ride for Life, benefiting the Mary Mullenix Hackett Foundation for Breast Cancer Research, was held April 10th through 12th. Our fundraising efforts were able to donate over $1,000 to the Research Center despite the thunderstorms and high winds that blew through campus. We are planning for Homecoming to be bigger than ever this year so we can get a buzz going for our 75th anniversary in the summer of 2002. If there are any alumni planning on attending the Homecoming game versus Northwestern on October 27th, please contact our “E” at email@example.com or visit our website at http:// expert.cc.purdue.edu/ ~deltachi.
RENO In April we held our first officer transition retreat. The retreat was put on by local ABT members Shawn Pearson, Bobbie Turner, and Ron Maxwell, with the valuable assistance of Regent Jeff Albright. The goal of the retreat was to prepare newly elected officers for the requirements of their offices. To that end, outgoing officers turned over their notebooks and met with their incoming counterparts. Additionally, the outgoing and incoming officers engaged in team building exercises and planned out all of their duties and obligations on a master calendar for the next semester. Finally, Rich Whitney, the University’s Greek Leadership Coordinator, presented the group with recruitment training. With plenty of coffee and cookies to go around, all agreed that the retreat was a great way to hand over the reigns to the new officers.
RUTGERS There is arguably no single event that unites the Rutgers Greek and New Brunswick communities than the RU Dance Marathon, the largest student-run philanthropic endeavor in the state. It is held to benefit the Institute for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders. The Dance Marathon consists of a series of charity events such as roadside canning in New Brunswick as well as pancake breakfasts all building up to the main event: the 32-hour Marathon. Our contributions included brothers and associates who were among the 500 students volunteering as Security and Moralers (who are responsible for keeping the dancers psyched and comfortable throughout the Marathon), as well as raising over $2,000 for the Institute. Delta Chi also took 2nd Place in the Dance Marathon Banner Competition, the best of any fraternity that entered, thanks to the fine efforts of the spring associate class. All together over $71,000 was raised in what has become one of the proudest traditions at Rutgers. We are also in the process of moving to a larger house, for we are becoming one of the largest fraternities on campus. This year at Regional Conference we were unanimously voted to hold the next year’s Conference and hope to make it one of the largest and most successful events ever.
STEPHEN F. AUSTIN COLONY This spring we focused on strengthening our bond and working hard on our grades. Social events consisted of an All-Greek St. Patrick’s Party in which we had our biggest turn out ever. Other events included a grand slam Grab-a-Date where we barbecued and played softball in the sun. The most memorable event was the White Carnation Ball held at the Fredonia Hotel, where we danced the night away. The brothers are extremely proud of Joe Ham, who took runner up in Mr. Alpha Chi Omega. We
also had our third annual Delta Disco with DZ and a Delta Chi/ Chi Omega Woodstock with an outdoor concert and plenty of mud slinging. We ended the semester by initiating our spring class. The fraternity also wants to thank our “BB”, Dr. Gary Mayer for his hard work and determination in helping us through good and bad times. We are looking forward to a well-deserved summer while the executive board tries to work out concerns of the fraternity, and plan a well-organized rush for next fall.
TARLETON At this year’s Special Olympics, we had members running the following events: Softball, Demolition, and the Obstacle Course. The Kappa Delta Chi Sorority teamed up with us in helping with the Obstacle Course. Also in March, we participated in “The Big Event”, a community service project in which groups and organizations work to improve the community. In April, we teamed up with Alpha Gamma Delta and sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt for the Stephenville Foster Home. Along with the hunt we had a cookout, and played a few games of kick ball with the foster home children. Also in April, we hosted Del Tiki, an alumni/active chapter volleyball tournament, the last one at the house on Jones Street. Del Tiki had a great turnout with seven teams participating in the tournament. We also had alumni from other chapters participating in the daylong festivities at the house. The winners of the tournament were Nathan Dix, Kyle Kelso, Augustine Ulloa, and Holly Good.
TEXAS For the first time ever, we boasted two extremely successful alumni events. In the past, alumni events have been centered around the fall and Texas football games, however, our alumni have proven that they don’t need an excuse to get together and socialize. In late March, we hosted our 3rd Annual Spring Alumni Event
Northern Arizona Chapter enjoys Lake Havasu. where alumni from all over the country gathered to enjoy a fun filled weekend with their brothers and families. The weekend raised over $2000 for our Housing Corp, and we can’t thank the alumni enough for their commitment to their Fraternity. In April we hosted our first ever 50’s Reunion. Several 50’s era alumni gathered in Austin to catch up with brothers who they hadn’t seen in years, as well as meet the current chapter. We enjoyed hearing stories of the “old days” and the alumni enjoyed refreshing themselves on the Ritual as well as taking a tour of the campus that has changed so much since they were in school. In the future, we plan to host a 40’s as well as 50’s reunion. We can’t thank our alumni enough for the positive support that they have given us, and we are excited about what the future holds as our alumni program continues to reach new levels.
TEXAS A&M We participated in “The Big Event”, a university wide philanthropy event that benefits the Bryan-College Station area. During this event we went to the homes of the elderly and the less fortunate residents of the community and helped them with jobs around their homes. This gave our brothers a good opportunity to give back to the community. We have also had an incredible social calendar, one event was our annual Delta Chi Downs Date Party, where we take a trip down to the Sam Houston Race Track. We also held our Un-Fashionably Loud Crush Party. This was one of
the best crush parties that our chapter has had in years. Our intramural teams are continuing the Delta Chi tradition of athletic excellence. We are well on our way to another 12th Man cup with our championship in flag football and our top four finishes in soccer, softball and basketball.
TRI-STATE We’d like to begin by congratulating Erik Ripley ’01 who was honored by receiving the Borelli Family Leadership Award With Distinction. Also, due to strong efforts made in rush, we have been able to initiate a total of 13 men as well as three fathers this year. This achievement pushes our total active membership to 39. What’s more, for the third consecutive semester, we’ve led all other Greeks on campus in academics, which was made possible by a G.P.A. of 3.22. We also have a strong grasp on campus leadership. In fact, three out of the four Student Senate Executive Board members are Delta Chis. Zach West ’01, Chad Walters ’02, and Chris Besler ’03, hold the positions of President, Vice-President, and Secretary, respectively. For the third straight year, we’ve taken the basketball intramural championship trophy. With a very successful Alumni Weekend, a number of philanthropy events (including highway cleanup and a bike-athon which raised 300+ items of food for a homeless shelter), and a couple of retention activities (namely paint-balling and a canoe trip during a lightning storm), we’ve had a year that will not be soon forgotten. ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001 11
UNLV Martin Holmquist ’02 has won the plaque for highest GPA the last three semesters. Our membership stands at 70. Delta Chi has continued supporting and participating in non-Greek events. We have loved being involved with Friendship Games, put on by the Multicultural Office, for the past three years. We have five senators on the UNLV campus: DJ Fauske, Vice President, Luke Bowland, RJ Peltyn (engineering), Ken Oaki (student development) and Aaron Dunning (education). In philanthropy we have raised over $52,000 this year. Our philanthropy chair, Bill Becker, did a marvelous job, contributing efforts that reached above and beyond anyone’s expectations. In the intramurals annual 5on-5 basketball tournament, Delta Chi reached the finals.
VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH After coming within inches of losing our charter, we had a serious re-assessment of our goals as brothers. We changed nearly everything for the better and our improvements are quite noticeable. We are happy to announce that on July 1st, we will once again be in good standing with Delta Chi, and will be off of probation. We have placed ourselves in the spotlight of Greek life on campus. We received the Most Improved Chapter Award from our University. Also Mike Araj, “A”, received the Greek Man of the Year award from the University. We have the maximum number of brothers allowed on the IFC
Executive Board. Mathew Braydich is the Treasurer for IFC, and Shary Firouzabadian is the Secretary, while Jonathan Foster is the Pledge-Educator. We would also like to congratulate Shary for his recent induction as the Greek Counsel President and Ted Leonard as the Greek Counsel Vice President. We would also like to thank Adam Barnett and Jason Hodnett for presenting our new project, the MVP (Mentors against Violence Prevention) program at the Region IX conference at West Chester U. Also at the conference, Greg Lawrence was elected Regional Philanthropic Coordinator, and Adam Barnett was nominated for a position on the housing finance committee. We would like to congratulate Mike Araj and Shary Firouzabadian for their induction into the Order of Omega. Matthew Busch was inducted as the Alpha Sigma Alpha’s Phoenix Man and also took the title of Mr. Greek VCU from our very own Tee Daniel. Matthew Braydich won the Big Man on Campus Award as well. Lastly, we would like to thank our hard working “BB” Marc Berger and the rest the ABT.
VIRGINIA TECH Jason Kies has recently been accepted into the Order of Omega for his outstanding academic achievements. Drew Frevert, President of Key Program and SGA Senator, was a very inspiring force on campus this year. Brian Cade our previous “A” was voted as Delta Chi Man of the Year. Patrick Wachendorf won our Sir Edward Coke Award, had an outstanding year as IFC president, and was a finalist for the
Greek Man of the Year. Graduating senior, Bryan Drowos, finished up a great year as Student Government Association’s Chief of Staff. Undergraduates in the School of Business elected Matt Harlin and Jeff Ervick as Student Senator Representatives. Justin Coleman and Jeff Ervick were nominated to the IFC executive board as Assistant Athletic Chair and Public Relations Officer respectively. Matt Harlin has also been elected to represent our chapter in the Homecoming Court this fall. This year at Greek Awards we won the Philanthropy Award, Philanthropy Participation Award and, for the 5th year in a row, the Social Award. We also received Honorable Mention for Membership Development, IFC Soccer Tournament, IFC Sportsmanship, and 2000 Blood Drive. Our chapter also was a finalist for the Alumni Association Academy of Excellence. This year’s athletics have been quite outstanding. Our softball team place 2nd in the IFC Tournament, and 1st in the Intramural Tournament. Parker Consaul led our soccer team to 1 st place in the IFC Tournament. Our associates also had a great semester. At Delta Zeta’s Classic philanthropy event, they came away with 1st place Spirit Award, 2nd place Banner Award, and 2nd place overall. Plus their hard work paid off as they also placed 2nd overall at this year’s Greek Week competitions. With all of their hard work this semester we were all pleased to see them get initiated. We would like to thank all the alumni who participated in our Alumni Golf Tournament.
Tarleton’s Del Tiki Volleyball Tournament. 12 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2001
This year we led the University with formal and informal rush. We also made a great showing at the all-Greek awards, receiving: outstanding alumni relations, outstanding new member education, outstanding intramurals program, and outstanding programming. The house is near capacity and we are looking to fill it this fall.
WEST VIRGINIA COLONY Our first philanthropy as a group was a major success. Out of nine sororities, seven of them participated in the Sumo Slam. The person who benefited from our philanthropy was Brian Smith, a WVU student who was burned very badly in a house fire earlier this semester. He was asleep when his house caught fire late one night. He woke up and ran to the outside. When he realized that his roommate was still in the house, he ran back in to try to save him. He suffered major burns on all of his body and was hospitalized for several months. We decided as a group to start the Brian Smith Fund to help out with the bills. We were able to contribute $500 to the family. This is only a small dent in the total but we plan to do other things in the future to support this brave student. The winner of the event was Alpha Phi, second place was Delta Gamma, and third went to Alpha Xi Delta.
WESTERN MICHIGAN We initiated 14 men into the bond, putting our membership at 30 for fall. Our GPA remained in the top three for fraternities. In March, we held our annual Buy-a-DChi and raised over $400 for The American Cancer Society. We were also successful in getting people to donate blood to The American Red Cross. As a chapter, we were very competitive in Greek-organized philanthropic events such as tug-of-wars, softball, golf, hockey, and volleyball tournaments, to name a few. We also did very well in this year ’s Greek Week activities. At the awards ceremony we took home the Stone Archer Award for our outstanding leadership and brotherhood. This year ’s formal was a great way to end a successful year. It was held in late March on the coast of Lake Michigan and was a great way to see all of the brothers and their beautiful dates together one last time before the end of the school year.
