The Importance of Education How did you discover Delta Chi? Unless you’re a “legacy” or knew a brother before stepping foot on campus, you probably discovered Delta Chi after you first made the decision, like all of us, to seek higher education. As freshmen, we packed up our belongings, gathered up our courage, and left home for college. We left with hopes of good grades, thoughts of a rewarding career after graduation, and visions of a bright future. Sometime after, we discovered “fraternity” and Delta Chi. Discovering Delta Chi is the best thing that has happened to me. I have often said, “If it were not for Delta Chi, I would not be where I am today. And, for that, I am very grateful.” But “fraternity” - Delta Chi - can be very distracting and difficult for a young student who is still trying to adjust to college life. Does Delta Chi assist “in the acquisition of a sound education”? Try to answer that truthfully. Are we taking the time to show Associate Members where the campus tutorial center is? Are we showing them where the library is, (granted they should already know that!)? Are we assigning brothers with good GPAs as mentors to the Associate Members to help them with their studies during and after the AM period? Are we inviting in our Faculty Advisor to speak to the Associate Member class about the importance of their grades and the impact it will have on finding good jobs after graduation? Or... are we doing the Associate Members AND brotherhood a disservice by putting education on the back shelf and not stressing the importance of grades and the impact they will have on their future? Are social events more important than studying? Is it acceptable, and
sometimes funny, to just blow off a class? Are we not giving appropriate study time and appropriate hours for the Associate Member class to prepare for class and tests, or just plain study? We must remember, that education is the first and primary reason you came to college. Fraternity is great, and I am all for it, but grades are a necessary prerequisite to truly enjoy fraternity. Imagine what will happen to your chapter or colony if the brothers start to have poor grades and it continues...eventually you will lose the chapter or colony, but what happens to you? Your Delta Chi experience will be sub-par, and, if you graduate, you probably will not acquire the job or salary that you really wanted and dreamed of when you left home to go to college. So let’s look at some positive ideas to help you stay focused. 1. F ind your role models. Are they well educated? Are they focused on their goals and have their priorities in order? 2. W ork hard. Share your successes. Share them with your alumni as well, and take the praise. Everyone likes a good pat on the back. 3. B e social. That doesn’t mean be a party animal. It means be responsible, have intelligent conversations and listen to what people say. It is amazing what you will learn from people, especially your alumni, if you just take the time to listen. 4. F ind your motivation. When people start to get bad grades they start to deceive themselves that a particular class is a waste of time and they will never need it. It will be the professors fault. Stay motivated, ask yourself, “What would my role model do?” Look for inspiration from family or friends, but improve and take responsibility. 5. S et goals. Write them down and put them in a place where you can see them every day. Share your goals with family and friends. Then, stay focused on achieving them. As you achieve them, cross them of and add new goals. Make sure they are realistic, attainable, and have a set date for achievement. Delta Chi and the acquisition of a sound education should go together, not work against each other. Together they will enhance your college and fraternity experience. Go to class. Study. Tutor a brother. Help each other to realize the importance of education and assist each other in the acquisition of a sound education.

ALABAMA CHAPTER ON A ROLL! Written with significant contributions from Chuck Carlin, Alabama ’57
Founded in 1927, the Alabama Chapter has enjoyed a storied history as the state’s oldest Delta Chi Chapter. Today, the Chapter and the University are now riding the crest of the Crimson Tide’s three recent BCS Football Championships that have undoubtedly contributed to the tremendous surge in the size of the student body from slightly more than 19,000 in 2000 to over 33,000 in 2013. Not just because of this, the Chapter now finds itself with more than 100 student members due to the continual hard work of the student members and support of the Chapter’s alumni. As a result, the Chapter House’s facilities have been stretched to their limits something made even more problematic by the realistic expectation of even more membership growth. The decision to improve the Chapter House became obvious, first, by the recent wave of construction activities in the University’s Greek community. To remain competitive, the Chapter felt it needed to upgrade the house. After careful consideration, it was decided to renovate and expand the current house so that, as far as facilities are concerned, the Chapter’s prominent position on campus would be secure far into the future. This decision was made even easier by the fact that the house itself is in reasonably good condition, having been originally built in 1971. Also, since 1998 almost a half-a-million dollars have been invested, most from alumni, to provide a functional facility of
which all could be proud. Alumni also felt that it was just as important to give to future generations of young men the same opportunity past members had to be part of Alabama Delta Chi. These opportunities would be made possible by a flourishing student membership residing in a modernly-equipped, attractive, comfortable Chapter House. With all this in mind, in spring 2012, the Alumni Board of Trustees and the House Corporation made the formal decision to commit almost four million dollars to address the pressing need for a larger, improved, code-compliant house with a capacity of at least 125 student members.

alabama chapter house The Alabama Chapter’s new home will more than double in size and triple in capacity, with 18,000 sq. ft. of living space and a sleeping capacity of 34 men. The Dining Room (125/127) takes the place of the old Fellowship Hall. It will seat 110 men and will also serve as the Chapter Room. A modern kitchen will extend into the area of the old dining room, with an access hall leading to efficient food service/dish-return areas. A large Fellowship Hall (136) will now be located in the new back wing. The enclosed Courtyard (128) includes landscaping and a covered, grand colonnade walkway outside the dining room, running from the front wing to the back wing.
The renovated, enlarged Food Service Areas (120/121/123/126/ 141-143) will extend into the old dining room, with an access hall from the first floor common area that also leads to the new dining room/chapter room located in the old fellowship hall. Extensive renovation work will result in the current Front Entry Foyer (102) being completely transformed into a reception area worthy of a prominent fraternity house. Arched doorways will lead from both sides of the foyer into a completely redesigned common area. The foyer’s ceiling will be stepped-recessed, with crown molding and a new, attractive hanging light fixture, while the open-common area will have dropped-ceilings with integrated florescent lights installed behind opaque panels. The House Director’s Quarters (105-111) will be enlarged and renovated, with much attention to details from our hard working house director Ms. Vivian Anderson, who has also been much involved in the redesign and upgrade of the food service areas.
DELTA CHI QUARTERLY
Blueprint for the Future Entry onto the house grounds from the back street will be controlled by two strategically placed, iron gates that can be secured. The fellowship hall also has a large, roll-up door that opens to the Courtyard Patio (128). The patio extends along the back wing to the dining room doors, which also open to the patio. It then extends to and along the front wing, providing a center area of grass.
An entirely new, Two-Story Wing addition will be built along the backside of the houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lot, resulting in an enclosed, fully landscaped courtyard, surrounded on three sides by the house, the fourth side being the existing brick fence. The new fellowship hall will be on the first floor of the new wing, while the second floor will consist of new sleeping rooms/baths suites and a lounge area.
The house will now be ADA compliant, code compliant, fitted with fire safety components, and it will offer residents wireless internet, cable television outlets, and security cameras. A long-desired (by many), new, aesthetic look for the front of the house will involve replacing the old front lawn lights with a spotlight sited at the base of each front porch column, allowing each to be illuminated from below. All four columns, as well as all other exterior house trim, will be repainted white. And the ornamental railing on the top of the front porch will be repainted black. The combination of newly repainted, base-lit, porch columns, with new, darkbronze light fixtures on each side of the new, double, front doors with dark-bronze hardware, a newly repainted, porch-top railing, and new windows and shutters, along with a new, attractive, darkbronze light fixture suspended from the center of the porch SECOND ceiling to just above the front doors, added to the new, sloped front walk, will provide an imposing, eye-catching house-front, especially when lit up at night.
The houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current Single-Occupancy Rooms (205-213) will be completely renovated, including new furniture. The new wing of the second floor will now include Suite-style Bedrooms (221-259) and a Separate Laundry Room (204/242). Each new suite will have two single-occupancy sleeping rooms and a shared bath. All sleeping rooms will have new furniture, as well as wireless internet access and cable television outlets. For safety, all rooms will now include smoke detectors and an attractive, heavy-duty locking entrance door.

FINANCING Student Chapter Contributions Over time, the substantial financial contribution of the Student Chapter will provide the vast majority of the project’s final cost. Historically, this has always been the case when the Alabama Chapter has undertaken major housing projects, such as the 1935 construction of the Chapter’s first-owned house, the 1971 construction of the current house, and the mid-’80s construction of the fellowship hall. Since 2005, the Student Chapter has also been a steady contributor of a portion of the nearly $500,000 that has provided a substantial base for the current project. Moving forward, the Student Chapter will make the necessary monthly payments to the University on the 30-year, $3.25 million dollar mortgage loan that represents the bulk of the current project’s funding. In addition to the monthly mortgage loan payments, scheduled to begin in summer 2014, the Student Chapter is also contributing $150,000 for furniture, furnishings, and other non-construction costs. Under the University’s organization, donations from alumni will also be used to pay down the mortgage principle, reducing the Student Chapter’s financial obligation over time.
Project Funding by the Numbers 3,750,000

1,000,000 is allocated to renovations and 2,750,000 to expansion

THE PROJECT Alumni, ABT and House Corporation Contributions Based on the recent experiences of several UA Greek organizations, alumni leaders chose Pennington & Company, a fundraising, consulting, and public relations company (whose President is Patrick Alderdice, Ball State ’92) to assist with the Chapter’s $1,000,000 fundraiser. Jon Vice, Alabama ’70, graciously accepted the nomination from the ABT to lead the effort. Vice, an entrepreneur in the fields of hospital administration and charitable fundraising, has proven to be the ideal person for this demanding position. Thus far, Vice and Pennington & Company’s efforts have yielded a total of $834,000 (as of 8/18/2013) in cash and pledges towards the project. Brothers have given to the effort through traditional donations, five-year gifts, tax-advantaged IRA withdrawals, furniture, and even construction supplies. The drive’s ultimate goal has been to personally contact every one of the Chapter’s nearly 1,000 living alumni and share with them this historic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The Chapter, of course, plans to recognize the name and contribution level of each donor in a permanent display in the renewed house. The fundraising effort’s two largest donors at the time of publication happen to be two individuals who’ve given so much of their time to ensuring the success of the project: Brother Vice and Stan Williams, Alabama ’60. Williams, along with Vice, hosted and attended a number of meetings in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa with Hendon & Huckenstein Architects, University officials, and other project leaders. Williams was instrumental in negotiating the details of the mortgage loan and also securing temporary housing for the student members until the project’s completion. Without both men’s leadership and tireless efforts, many suspect that the project wouldn’t be able to reach its final stages, as the Chapter is actively preparing for the formal dedication to be held during the summer of 2014.
All of the learning experiences as a student member of Delta Chi and the long lasting brotherhood bonds enjoyed as an alumnus have truly been gifts that I cherish. It is for these reasons that I hold the Chapter in such esteem and continue to work to ensure its success. The renovation and expansion of the Chapter house is another major mile marker in this journey.
~ Stan Williams ’60 House Corporation President
ALABAMA ALUMNI The Alabama Chapter has given the University of Alabama many of its most prominent graduates. Among them is Former “AA” Jefferson J. Coleman, Sr. ’29, who had a distinguished 50-plus years career as a University executive and for whom the school’s current basketball arena, Coleman Coliseum, is named. Another is incumbent U.S. Senator Richard C. Shelby ’57 (AL-R). Shelby Hall, the newest, largest academic building
on campus, is named in Senator Shelby’s honor. Many distinguished doctors, dentists, lawyers, educators, engineers, businessmen, clergymen, career U.S. armed services members, and countless others, have been first members of the Alabama Chapter. There was never a question about allowing the proud legacy of these brothers to be diminished by a failure now to provide an equally prestigious Chapter House.

THE STUDENT CHAPTER, directed by Sam Wells ’55, were winners of the 1955 IFC Step Singing Competition on the University’s Main Library front steps, singing - Happy Wanderer, Soon I Will Be Done With The Troubles Of The World, and Delta Chi’s Bond Song. This recording of the bond song was used for many years at International Conventions and the chartering of new chapters.

Before graduation, our chapter has grown to 121 brothers, and we’re actively looking forward to a successful summer recruitment effort. During the spring semester, we completed a number of community service events, including building houses, building dog shelters for kennels, and a number of University and sorority hosted events. We’re also looking forward to the renovations and expansion projects that will soon be completed on our chapter house.
Grant Winfield ’16 “E”
Our intramural softball championship team
This spring, we have made great strides as a chapter, as we again earned the highest GPA among fraternities on campus. Several brothers will attend graduate programs in the prestigious HAAS School of Business. Our “Delta Chi World Cup” raised funds and awareness for The V Foundation and brought our whole Greek community together. We’re looking forward to growing as a chapter and increasing our presence on campus this fall.
Mercedez Martinez ’16 “E” Leadership Consultants Bill Halaby, South Florida ’12, Evan Lieb, West Chester ’12, and Nick Stitt, Augusta ’12 set foot on Adelphi’s campus with the goal of enhancing the well-established Greek community. In doing so, they changed the lives of 23 young men while creating a strong foundation for Delta Chi’s future at Adelphi. During the Colony’s first semester on campus, Delta Chi staff worked with the Founding Fathers to expand bonds, develop a network base, and earn a positive reputation with the Faculty and other organizations. Through continued events, friendships between organizations grew quickly. At our “Beat Cancer” event, which benefited The V Foundation, we padded ourselves with pillows, and 130 individuals paid one dollar to swing a faux baseball bat at us. We were one of the highest attended teams during Relay for Life, and our fundraising efforts exceeded $400.00. We also hosted a “Penny Wars” event, with the proceeds going to establish an annual Earth Ball event in the near future. We also co-hosted a softball tournament with Phi Sigma Kappa and a football BBQ mixer with Pi Lambda Phi. We participated in Delta Delta Delta’s letter-writing campaign to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. We also hosted a brotherhood event with a Super Smash Bros. Competition. During Greek Week, brothers participated in every event, and we brought home first place at the Greek Marathon. Andy Jacobs ’13 also led the way for our third place finish at Greek Sing.
We collected 82 bags of clothing for the Mustard Seed organization during our “We Want Your Pants” clothing drive. We also hosted a “hide and seek” social event at IKEA, and our band performed well during the ‘Greek God and Goddess’ battle of the bands and dancing competitions. During our Teaching Excellence Award (TEA) Night, we were enlightened with three inspiring speeches after recognizing three outstanding professors. Many of our Associate Members from last term have already taken on key positions within the Chapter. In fact, one half of our current executive board is comprised of first-year brothers. Our brothers are also excelling academically while also keeping whole and healthy through participation in intramural sports and independent physical endeavors. We look forward to continuing our growth in the coming seasons.
Greg Caplin ’13 “A” Our chapter focused on three aspects this semester - philanthropy, recruitment, and the elimination of chapter debt - and we’re extremely proud to say that this has been a successful spring semester. With the help of our alumni, IHQ, and our ABT, we’ve restructured our chapter’s finances and eliminated our debt. On April 13th, we hosted our second annual Earthball event, which raised $4,053 for The V Foundation. This event pushed our annual contribution total to $5,124, and we’re working to increase this total to $10,000 before the 2014 Convention in Scottsdale. We also welcomed 12 men into our brotherhood this spring, meeting the recruitment goal we set as a chapter. Our brothers welcomed members of Delta Chi’s Staff, local and area alumni, and others to Washington D.C. During the NIC’s lobbying campaign for the Collegiate Housing Infrastructure Act (CHIA). Finally, Al Custard ’15, our former Recruitment Chairman and current Vice President of IFC, ran for Student Body President.

Recently, Augusta State University successfully merged with its neighboring medical college, Georgia Health and Sciences University, and is now named Georgia Regents University. Since the merger, we’ve been working to ensure that the traditions we’ve established over the last 30 years will assist us in maintaining our presence moving forward. We began the semester with a semi-formal, where we also invited members of the Kennesaw Chapter and their dates. With the help of 13 local sponsors and over 30 participants, we raised $2,500 for The V Foundation during our first “Jimmy Jog” 5k Run. Following the event, we hosted a social event at the Pinnacle Club on the 16th floor of the Wells Fargo Building in downtown Augusta. We’ve maintained the highest GPA among fraternities, and Ming Chen ’15 was recognized as the Best New Greek Member on campus.
Our second “Strongman” competition at Pismo Beach was a success, and we’re looking forward to seeing it as an annual tradition. Several fraternities registered teams and competed in a series of events, including bench press, sled pull, brick hold, and atlas carry. All of the proceeds from the event went to The V Foundation.

Jeremy Omard ’13 received recognition with the Jackson Lethbridge Tolerance Award, an award given to a junior, senior, or graduate student for their outstanding efforts to enhance the understanding of diverse cultures and create a community where all individuals are accepted and valued equally.
We welcomed eight men into our brotherhood as members of our Epsilon class. These men embody our values of friendship, character, justice, and education, and we’re proud to have them as brothers. We hosted our first “Shave a Life” campaign, where we raised money to have some of our brothers’ heads shaved. Over two weeks, eight brothers shaved their heads to raise $2,010 for Relay for Life. We’re also proud to announce that Christian Wargo ’13 will serve as a Leadership Consultant this next year.

In addition to this event, our brothers also supported seven other charitable programs hosted by other Greeks. We are also proud to welcome the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life’s “Russ Driscoll Exemplar Award,” commemorating Order of the White Carnation Member Russ Driscoll, Florida ’57, who left this world in January.

Spencer Gladis ’15 “E”
Unpredictable. This is about the only word that can describe this past semester for our chapter. We have had an amazing philanthropic semester, raising over $2000 for charity. We continue to be a dominating force on our school’s Students’ Association holding twelve voting seats, including two executive board members, and also maintaining the presidency for the twelfth consecutive year. On a much more somber note, we were forced to say goodbye to a friend and brother. Brother Adam Ellis ’12 passed away at the age of 23. Although this was such a tragic event, it brought our brotherhood so much closer together, with over 50 brothers attending his funeral. We welcomed five men into the bond on April 13, 2013. We are also thrilled to have started construction on our housing expansion and remodel. These investments will more than double the occupancy of our house, making it one of the largest chapter houses on campus. We look forward to having a commercial kitchen, new study spaces, and updated facilities throughout the house. We would like to extend a huge “Thank You!” to all of our alumni that have so generously donated a significant amount to make this all possible.
Anthony Baez ’16 “E”
Our GPA is rising and is currently above the Greek Life average. Brothers have volunteered countless community service hours at the Boys and Girl’s Club and during our TXDOT trash pickups. Brothers continue to be involved in many clubs and intramural sports on campus, and we were the champions of the Greek Week soccer tournament.
Jake Moskowitz ’15 “D” Our annual “D-Chi Cup” broom ball tournament, which benefited The V Foundation, saw many fraternities, sororities, and other student organizations participate. To prepare for the event, participants were welcomed by the Syracuse Crunch hockey team to attend a game and pick up skills for the upcoming tournament. Our chapter also hosted Region VII’s RLC in March, and we’d like to congratulate this semester’s Omega associate member class on their recent initiation. 20

Brendan Carrick ’15 “E” Our spring recruitment effort yielded nine new members, the most our chapter has ever seen in the spring, and our manpower is now approaching 70 men. In April, we hosted our most successful philanthropy event to date. The “Delta Chi Pepper Philanthropy” consisted of collecting donations across campus in buckets with brothers’ names on them. The top five fundraising brothers had to eat a Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper, the current hottest pepper in the world. All five brothers gladly endured the fiery pepper, and the event in total raised over $2,600 for The V Foundation. We’re looking forward to moving into our 17-person house, which will be completed in September.
