2 Delta Chi | Quarterly | Spring 2012
Delta Chi Needs “Citizens” I remember the fall season of 2000 so vividly. Football was a distant thought when it came to politics. Our governor was running for the President of the United States against the sitting Vice-President. The campus was hotly divided between liberals and conservatives – everywhere you went you saw the fourletter last name of a presidential candidate that sparked debate and discussion. Our chapter was the same. In a predominantly red state, the city of Austin, however, has always been rather diverse in political thought, and our chapter was no different. I remember attending rallies and arguing with my brothers over who would make a better president. On November 7, 2000 our house was the political headquarters of the chapter. We rushed from the polls to the house and stayed up all night watching the pendulum of announcements and recalls on the outcome of the race. How can we ever forget that election – the one that continued months after the polls closed with no decisive victor? It was a special time for me as a developing adult. As the son of immigrants, politics was never a discussion point at home, and it was the 2000 election and the interaction I had with my brothers that made me realize how politics could shape our lives and how important it was to exercise my rights and privileges as a citizen. As U.S. and Canadian citizens, we live in countries where we can openly agree or disagree with a political figure or concept and cast our votes accordingly, yet so many citizens rarely take advantage of this opportunity. Unfortunately, many individuals disguise their lack of desire to learn the issues or their belief that their voice will not alter the outcome with their “right” not to vote. I hope this is not the case with fraternity men. Fraternity is instrumental in the development of successful citizens because involvement, communication, and a sense of responsibility are important aspects of our education. We learn that “pinning,” “initiation,” and “alumnus status” are just as important as the journey of preparation before and after those events. In the same way, “voting” is meaningless without discussion and education before
and after as well. Those beneficial debates and conversations between brothers make them better citizens and, as a result, better men. It might seem trivial to think that an argument between brothers about a candidate or ideology could impact their lives, but that spark of passion to make a choice and defend it will net positive results in whatever they decide to do. I find it ironic that Delta Chi itself can trace its origins to the result of an election and the desire to make a difference. Citizenship is not limited to federal, state, or county issues but extends to our obligations as a part of any society. We must strive to be the agent of change rather than its victim. Whether you are an undergrad who decides to get involved in student politics or an alumnus who decides to attend a neighborhood homeowners meeting, you have a duty as a citizen to exercise your right to learn and to choose how to make your community better. I believe that fraternity men have an advantage over other men because of our desire to remain involved in something larger than ourselves. In our chapter meetings, RLCs, and Conventions, we provide our members the opportunity to exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens and educate themselves on the issues and/or candidates and cast their votes accordingly. We are a social fraternity not because of parties, but because we prepare our men for life in society, and our men are better citizens, fathers, husbands, and brothers because of it. This will be my final article as your “AA”, and it has been a privilege and an honor to represent and lead our beloved Delta Chi. I would like to end this article in the same manner in which I have ended all of my articles – with a challenge. Citizenship takes effort, and we need to start somewhere. This November, I am challenging our alumni and undergraduates to not only learn the issues and candidates but to cast their votes as well. There is no right or wrong way to vote so long as your vote is an educated one. As always, I want to hear from you so please email me at email@example.com. In the bond,
R.C. Damle, “AA” Texas ’01 51st “AA” Life Loyal Member

Shaunt Attarian ’12 “E”
Ben Dixon ’13 “E”
Our brothers have continued to be leaders on campus and in the classroom, earning one of the highest GPAs among Greek organizations yet again. We’ve also continued our streak of having at least one brother in the Associated Students of The University of California when Rafi Lurie ’15 became a Senator for the ASUC. In April, we hosted our Delta Chi World Cup, a soccer tournament to raise funds for The V Foundation.
We welcomed over 240 brothers, Retiring “AA” Tom Horowitz, and “DD” Miles Washburn to Auburn, AL for this year’s RLC. During the weekend, an award was created and named after one of our alumni, Michael Carroll ’71, for his devotion to Delta Chi.
Alabama Zac Cochran ’14 “E” Our chapter has grown immensely this year, due to an increase in our active member retention rate and our spring recruitment efforts. Our grades are consistently improving as well. In fact, Mark Husted ’12 achieved the highest GPA among graduating seniors. This spring, many brothers participated in tornado relief efforts every Sunday and also attended “A Day of Service,” an event held around the anniversary of last year’s tornadoes. Each Friday, brothers taught underprivileged children how to read. Our annual Indian Party also raised $2,400 for The V Foundation. We’ve also begun plans for an expansion and renovation project in our house.
Andrew Buchholz ’13 “E” We welcomed four men as associate members this spring. We participated in two service projects, made great strides with our philanthropic efforts, and have maintained the highest GPA among Greek organizations on campus. Also, our “White Carnation” formal was a great success.
Behrend Derek Krzysiak ’14 “E” During the spring 2012 semester, we worked diligently to make our chapter the best it can possibly be. Brothers have been working both day and night on our service initiatives, our scholarship program, and our relationships within the Behrend community.
Alberta Bryan Tran ’14 “E” We welcomed nine men into our brotherhood, including three alumni initiates and one associate member. For the second year in a row, we won the annual songfest competition. We met our goal of raising $1,200 for The V Foundation and then focused our attention toward some local charities as well. We were able to gather over 50 bags of clothing and 350 pounds of food for the shelter and food bank.
American Eric Langer ’13 “E” While we celebrated achievements such as welcoming eleven men into our brotherhood and continuing our strong academic trend, we all paused when, on March 2, 2012, Shawn Streiff ’04 was struck by a truck while cycling in Washington, D.C. Together our brothers, friends, and alumni came to his aid, raising over $5,000 in the 72 hours following the accident. The funds have helped with Shawn’s recovery process, which is going well. On April 20, 2012, we hosted our first ever Earth Ball Games to raise funds for The V Foundation.
Appalachian State Justin Kirschenblatt ’14 “E” This spring marked the 25th anniversary of our chartering. We celebrated this milestone with a banquet on April 28, 2012. The event was a great success, with many stories both new and old traded throughout the night. Our annual Big Bounce event raised over $1,300 for The V Foundation. We also received seven out of a possible ten awards that fraternities on our campus may be given.
Arizona Caleb Mendoza ’12 “E” We held our annual Fathers’ Weekend and went go-kart racing in the Tucson Valley. Our brothers brought home first place and raised over $4,800 for Service for Sight during Delta Gamma’s Anchor Splash. We’re also planning on honoring Anthony Andrighetto by adding a Sport Court to our courtyard in the fall.
We’ve participated in various philanthropic events this spring. We raised over $400 for Penn Brothers after a dodge ball recruitment event State’s THON. Eric Peirce participated in the “Mr. and Miss Penn State Behrend” Pageant. His participation brought home first place and also helped the women of Alpha Sigma Tau raise money for the Pine Mountain Settlement School in Kentucky. We hosted a raffle and week-long dinner event at Ponderosa to raise funds for the V Foundation. Lastly, we planned an evening ball at a local retirement home with the women of Gamma Sigma Sigma. Our new members were recently recognized for earning the highest GPA among new member classes, and our brothers earned the highest GPA among fraternities during the entire 2011-2012 school year. We’re still renovating our scholarship program to ensure that our grades continue to improve. We’re also working on developing a scholarship for incoming freshmen. Going beyond just “public relations,” we worked hard to build relationships, with brothers working in various ways to meet our goal. Members joined organizations including the Lion Ambassadors, Student Government Association, College Democrats, Multi-Cultural Council, and many others. We also hosted an Easter egg coloring between classes on campus. Our brothers have also welcomed Triangle to our Greek community, offering their members help whenever needed as they build their organization. Our spring semester was truly a major milestone in our chapter’s history. With new leadership and continued focus on our public image, our eyes are set to the future and growing our chapter.
Arizona State John Greenspon ’13 “E” Our soccer and basketball intramural teams were a force to be reckoned with this spring. We also hosted a wide range of events, including a pancake social that benefited the V Foundation, a “Nautical by Nature” date night, and our spring formal in Las Vegas, NV.

We’re proud of this spring’s philanthropic efforts. We sponsored the Purim Carnival and “Lazers Against Cancer” concert, and we planned our most successful “Miss Aphrodite” event yet. “Miss Aphrodite” is our annual pageant where sorority women compete in various events, including talent, formal wear, toga, and Q&A.

Besides many brothers going to see Avicii live while in Las Vegas, we also ran into many Delta Chi alumni during the weekend. It made us feel like there’s always a Delta Chi brother right around the corner, no matter where you are!
We’ve been working hard to assimilate ourselves among other Greeks on campus, and we’ve been successful at making a name for ourselves so far. We’re actively planning for fall recruitment and are excited with what next fall will bring!

Marshall “Imagine a World Without Cancer” Seth Rabatin ’11 “E”
Brothers from the Delta Chi Fraternity have a history of going to great lengths to raise money for the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Continuing with this tradition, a group of four bikers, called “The Six18 Boys”, biked from the Marshall Chapter in West Virginia all the way to raise more money for the Foundation one last time before graduation. Scott Hamlin, Seth Rabatin, Cameron Mallory, and Anthony Severino covered 618 miles in just eight days. Over the course of their journey the guys asked for donations from people they met. All told, they raised over $1,500 for the V Foundation for Cancer Research!
Michigan State Brendan Hanley ’13 “E” We’ve seen an increase in the strength of our alumni relations through events like our annual alumni golf outing, held this year on April 21, 2012 at the Eagle Eye Golf Club. Over 100 brothers and alumni participated in the event, and we’re hoping to grow this number in the years to come. While many brothers will be busy with classes and internships this summer, we’re eagerly looking forward to next fall!
The main theme for the journey was challenging people they met to “imagine a world without cancer.” They posed this question they met along the way and the responses they got were nothing short of touching. Some people said they would have had more time with loved ones; some said they themselves would have experienced less pain in their life. These amazing stories remind us of why we contribute so much time and money to this great cause. We can all easily imagine a world without cancer, and these outstanding men helped us move a little closer toward that reality. If you want to learn more about their journey, follow “Six18” on Facebook.

Ian Schamburg ’12 represented Delta Chi on Greek Week Court, while Taylor Mason ’13 competed in Delta Zeta’s “Big Man on Campus.” Mason also received the “Greek

CAMPUS SCENE of the Month” from our campus Greek Life Office. Our intramural 3-on-3 basketball team also reached the finals. In April, we welcomed over twenty alumni back to Kirksville for a weekend of events, including golfing and a BBQ.
Tom Devenny ’15 “E” Our fifth annual benefit concert for The V Foundation was a huge success, with much thanks to Sigma Beta Rho for their help. Alexander Clark ’15 currently serves as Inter-Greek Council Vice President, and Ryan Burkhardt ’17 placed third in the University’s “Mr. and Mrs. Greek” competition.
Jarrod Baskin ’12 “E” In February, we held our annual softball tournament to honor Joshua Dykes, a brother who was involved in a fatal car accident in 2010. This year’s tournament was a great success, with many teams from Georgia and Florida competing. Our Parents’ Weekend in March allowed us to show our parents the opportunities that Delta Chi affords to us. In April, we teamed up with Chi Omega and Sigma Chi to participate in Relay for Life. The most memorable part of our spring semester though, was Greek Week. We brought home second place overall, won Greek Week MVP, and Codee Burton ’12 was named Greek Week King. At Greek Assembly, we received the Most Improved GPA Award and placed second for the Campus Cup Award.
Washington State Drew Morgan Faculty “BB”
The Chapter finished the semester with plans for a strong summer recruitment effort, in order to bring more brothers into the fold. Midway through the spring, the Chapter elected a new “BB”, who is excited about working with the group as it moves forward.
West Chester Scott Grogg ’13 “E”
We welcomed nine men into our brotherhood this spring. Our annual “Quarters on the Quad” philanthropy raised almost $150 for The V Foundation. Through two additional bake sales, we raised another $150. In April, we raised over $1,300 through our participation in Relay for Life. We also invited alumni back for a day of brotherhood on April 14, 2012. During Greek Week, Juan Puppo ’14 won the “Greek God” event.
West Virginia Tech Michael Gibson ’12 “A”
Our campus is currently under renovation so that the fall of 2012 will be more pleasing and inviting to students.
West Georgia Daniel Noll ’12 “E”
This spring, we brought home second place during Greek Week and earned the second highest GPA among fraternities.
Andre Reveille ’14 “E”
We initiated seven men into our brotherhood this spring and participated in a number of events. We teamed up with Zeta Tau Alpha to host a simulated Senior Prom at Spring Harbor Assisted Living. We planned a night of music, food, drinks, and dancing, and we even named a Prom King and Queen. We look forward to planning a similar event again next year. Our third annual Jimmy V 3-on-3 basketball tournament had 22 team participate and a number of others donate money for The V Foundation. Teams donated $30 to participate, and the winning team received $60 in Visa gift cards. We were named Greek Intramural Champions after we brought home first place in outdoor soccer, dodge ball, kick ball, indoor soccer, and basketball.
Andrew Johnson ’14 “E” We were selected to host Region V’s 2013 RLC, and we’ve already begun planning for it. This spring, we also participated in a number of community service events.
William & Mary Daniel Velez ’13 “E”
We’re excited to announce that we have been selected to move into a house that the University will build on Greek Row. We were one of six fraternities selected, and we’ve already chosen our housing plot and house design. We’re very excited with how this development will help improve our presence and permanence on campus!
Cole Barney ’14 “E” We welcomed seven new members into our brotherhood, and they assisted us in bringing home the gold during Delta Zeta’s annual “Turtle Tug.” We hosted our formal at the Wilmington Convention Hall, where we celebrated the first anniversary of receiving our charter. We’re also actively preparing for our annual Kelp Klassic, a competition for UNCW’s best surfers.
Western Michigan Jake Williams ’14 “E”
Brothers grab a photo on the court
Rizki Aljupri ’12 “E” We began our spring semester with a chapter retreat, where members set goals for the upcoming semester and year. In February, eight brothers attended Region IV’s RLC and brought home an award for Outstanding Chapter Management. In March, we placed first, with a total donation of $500, in “Bowl For Kids Sake,” an event benefiting Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Topeka. In April, we hosted an alumni BBQ, volunteered at a local community food network, and hosted two philanthropy events on campus. Our balloon fight and 5k run/ walk collectively helped us raise $300 for The V Foundation.
Joe Mernaugh ’14 “E” Our house had several improvements this spring, including fixed speakers in the backyard, new backyard furniture donated by our parents’ club, re-tiled showers, and new paint in the hallways. We now also have white carnations planted in front of our house. We hosted brothers from around Region I for the RLC, and it was a successful weekend. Our “Dollars for Scholars” program is still going strong, rewarding brothers with excellent GPAs each term. Our entire chapter cheered in the stands as our intramural basketball team won the championship. With many brothers excited about Relay for Life, we actually formed two separate teams for the walk. Finally, we held our Sun Splash philanthropy at the end of the term. This event consists of a day of poolside competitions, a dance competition, tank top sale, and a raffle of UW sports memorabilia. Instead of our traditional volleyball tournament, Earth Ball is coming to UW!
18 Delta Chi | Quarterly | Spring 2012
We had a great turnout for our alumni golf outing at Thorneapple Creek in April, despite the rainout. We teamed up with Sigma Pi and Alpha Phi for Greek Week, and we also raised $185 for The V Foundation through two fundraisers at a Mongolian BBQ and at Applebee’s restaurants. Several brothers also visited Mark Schramka, Northwestern Alumnus, to receive haircuts at his old-fashioned barbershop. Mark donated $300 to The V Foundation from the haircut fundraiser.
Khalid Dafalla ’14 “E” This spring, we welcomed brothers from the Cincinnati Colony and Kettering Chapter to celebrate our 41st anniversary. We raised nearly $300 for The V Foundation from our snowball fundraising event. We also held poker and philosophy nights with other Greeks, participated in intramural flag football and hockey, and made new letters for the back of our house.
