Letter from the Editor Brothers of Delta Sigma Phi, When former Delta Sigma Phi Executive Director Scott Wiley asked me to take a second turn as editor of The Carnation, all I could think of was the famous quote by baseball legend Yogi Berra: “It’s like déjà vu all over again.” My previous stint as Carnation editor came during some very tough times. To keep the magazine alive, we cut costs by printing it on newsprint. I personally wrote almost every word for several issues. I also set the type, designed the magazine and even pasted up the pages. All that, of course, was back in the days before computer-assisted design was possible. That occurred during one of the periodic declines that have ravaged fraternities over the years. We came out of it and were able to hire some talented young people to take on more of the load, including Scott Cooper, Missouri ’84, a former staff member who contributed the article on the Delta Sigma Phi Leadership Institute in this issue. I volunteered to edit The Carnation then because I value it as the primary link between our alumni and the Fraternity. Our alumni are extraordinarily important to the fraternity’s operation and, through their tax-deductible contributions to the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation, they finance critically important events like the Leadership Institute, held each summer, and Regional Leadership Academies. Without alumni contributions of time and money, Delta Sigma Phi would not be able to provide the terrific training opportunities it now offers to undergraduates. The Leadership Institute, RLAs and other similar events have put Delta Sigma Phi on course to become America’s Leading Fraternity. That is our mission, and to accomplish that we have vastly improved programming aimed at undergraduates. For those of you out there who remember the days when the national Fraternity provided minimal help to undergraduates, please know that times have changed. To get a glimpse of the

difference our donors are making in the lives of our young men, just read Scott Cooper’s article on page 15. In that article, you’ll read quotes from undergraduates who say that the Leadership Institute did nothing less than change their lives. It gave them a new perspective on what it means to be a leader and a member of Delta Sigma Phi. I just retired after 38 years on the faculty of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, the oldest such school in the world. There, I dedicated my life to making things better for the next generation of young people. I took great satisfaction in that work and watched many of my former students win Pulitzer Prizes; Emmy Awards; Silver Anvils, the top award for public relations practitioners; and AAF-ADDY Awards, the top prize for advertising professionals. My volunteer work for the Fraternity has been equally satisfying, whether serving as a member of the Beta Beta ACB, as Carnation editor or as your national president from 1989-93. I have watched the young men of Delta Sigma Phi go out into the world and accomplish great things. With the programming we now offer, I expect even greater accomplishments in the years ahead. As your new Carnation editor, I’ll once again have a chance to tell you about that, but this time around I’ll have lots of accomplished folks to help me. That includes a team of writers we are assembling, including Scott Cooper; Jennifer Graham and Nick Gerhardt, Missouri ’08, the fraternity’s marketing and communications coordinators; and others to be named. I hope you’ll enjoy the changes we are planning for the magazine. Stay tuned. YITBOS, Brian Brooks, Missouri ’64 Editor

Executive Director 4

T h e C a r n a ti o n | D e l t a si g . o r g


The Grand Council named Patrick F. Jessee, Purdue ’01, as the next Executive Director of Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity. Named January 15, Jessee is the eleventh executive director for the Fraternity. Jessee, previously an attorney in the Washington D.C. office of the international law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Felp, LLP, began his time on staff February 4. “Patrick is a leader with in-depth knowledge and experience and is highly results-driven, but most importantly, he has an authentic passion for our mission, to make Delta Sigma Phi America’s leading fraternity,” Grand Council President Chris Edmonds said. Jessee has been actively involved in Delta Sigma Phi since his 2001 initiation into the Delta Delta Chapter at Purdue. “The personal and professional successes I have enjoyed are in no small part attributable to Delta Sigma Phi,” Jessee said. As the Executive Director of Delta Sig, Jessee will lead our Fraternity’s efforts in pursuit of Vision 2025. “We are educating thousands more men each year at our programs–at our Regional Leadership Academies, at our Leadership Institute, at Summit, at Convention– and we are continuing to develop and expand new and exciting ways to engage you, each of our members, with more consistent, more reliable, meaningful training that you can [use to] develop yourself into a better man, all as a part of our Vision 2025,” Jessee said.

Executive Director Patrick Jessee participates in the 2013 Indianapolis Regional Leadership Academy.

Jessee is committed to driving towards the strong goals Vision 2025 lays out for the Fraternity’s future. “By bringing all of our men into the fold, our idea is that when we get to 2025, every single one of our members–from top to bottom, from when you become a member until when you graduate–will consistently engage the leadership training we offer as a national fraternity,” Jessee said. Since Vision 2025 was adopted in 2005, Delta Sigma Phi has continued to make large strides. With Jessee at the helm of headquarters, we will continue to be well on our way to becoming America’s Leading Fraternity. Please read the next issue of The Carnation for a full biography on Executive Director Patrick Jessee.

WITTENBERG The Beta Iota Chapter at Wittenberg University in Ohio has over 800 alumni members. Of the 1900 students on campus, one-third of the student body joins fraternities and sororities.

APPALACHIAN STATE The university has placed emphasis on the student life engagement and Greek Life programming which creates an environment for a strong partnership with the fraternity.

Currently Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity has 17 new chapters, all at different stages in their pursuit of a chartering ceremony. Last fall our NCD team was on the ground at Appalachian State, Arizona State and Wittenberg recruiting founding fathers and helping the chapter begin the road to chartering. The progress doesn’t stop there, though. At the end of last semester, three new chapters were chartered. The first, University of Central Florida, was installed in UNC GREENSBORO September, becoming the Iota Epsilon UNCG administration determined it wants Greek Life to be a chapter of Delta Sigma component of developing student Phi.

New Chapter Development Iota Epsilon’s charter will hold a special place not only in members’ hearts, but in the hearts of staff, too. “I couldn’t be more excited to see the first new chapter development project I worked on as a staff member receive their Charter. To see those men’s excitement the night we presented them the Iota Epsilon Charter will forever be one of my proudest moments as a member of Delta Sigma Phi,” Kevin Parks, Assistant Director of Chapter Advancement, said. Parks is UCF’s staff contact in his current role. He also worked with the chapter in his previous role as a New Chapter Development Coordinator. “It’s a great leap forward for Delta Sigma Phi as we continue to build chapters in the state of Florida, not to mention the chapter is at one of the largest universities in the country.” This semester, the NCD team is on the ground at Texas A&M, UNC Greensboro and Case Western Reserve University, as well as Loyola Marymount. Fall 2013 will bring three more projects to New Chapter Development. The Fraternity will be recolonizing two chapters: Alpha Nu at Oglethorpe University and Gamma Alpha at San Diego State University. Delta Sig will also break ground for the first time at Indiana University. National Fraternity staff members, university officials and alumni have been working for the past year in preparation for Delta Sig’s return to Oglethorpe & San Diego State University. Recruitment will begin in August & September for the three colonizations. Please contact Nik Koulogeorge (koulogeorge@deltasig.org), Assistant Director of Fraternity Growth, for questions regarding the Fraternity’s recruitment efforts and recruitment referrals. Each colonization will require alumni and volunteer support – if you live in the Atlanta, Bloomington, Ind. or San Diego area, please contact Amber Huston (huston@deltasig.org) for information about alumni involvement and/or volunteer opportunities.

Terminology Delta Sigma Phi

3 New Chapter (Formerly: Colony) m Delta Sigma Phi is moving away from the term “colony” in favor of “new chapter.” We prefer to call the new Delta Sigma Phi groups “new chapters” instead of colonies. We believe the term new chapter is in line with the goals we set forth in furthering our organization. New chapters are held to the same standards and have the same values as existing, older chapters. They use our ritual just like any established chapter, too. Therefore, these groups should have the same designation: chapter.

3 New Chapter Development (Formerly: Expansion) m Delta Sig is getting away from using the term expansion when it comes to building chapters or returning to campuses. This mindset mentioned above in the colony vs. chapter discussion has changed Delta Sig’s approach, expectations and performance. Delta Sigma Phi has set itself apart from other fraternities that expand to campuses, versus building high-performing chapters and members. Our motto is Better Men. Better Lives. We aren’t just expanding our success, we are bettering it with each new chapter development project.

3 Recruitment (Formerly: Rush) m Delta Sigma Phi refers to the process of selecting new members as recruitment. Recruitment, as opposed to rush, spans more than just a week. Rush traditionally means a few days to a couple of weeks where potential members rush a house, and the house attempts to get as many people as possible. Recruitment, on the other hand, allows Delta Sig chapters to bond with and get to know potential new members. Recruitment is year-round.

3 New Member (Formerly: Pledge) m Being a new member means you are a member—you don’t have to earn your right to be in the fraternity. New members are treated with same respect and dignity as initiated members. Pledges, on the other hand, have to do their time and work to gain membership into the Fraternity.

3 Fraternity (Formerly: Frat) m Fraternity builds strong men. Fraternity develops character. Fraternity is a home away from home. Frats are everything the outside world thinks they are. The term “frat” gives off a very negative connotation.

3 Undergraduate or Alumnus (Formerly: Active) m Both undergraduates and alumni who are in good standing are all active members of the Fraternity. Therefore, we refer to them as undergraduates or alumni.

It happened while the number of social fraternities on campus was dropping from 15 to seven over the last several years. If you ask any Alumni Corporation Board member in a similar situation for a list of nightmare scenarios, one is sure to be on his mind—fire in the chapter house.

T h e C a r n a ti o n | D e l t a si g . o r g


A year and a half after the Illinois State chapter house caught fire, Alumni Corporation Board President Phil Rodriguez, Illinois State ’03, reflected on that fateful night at Epsilon Omega and the weeks that followed. “It was unreal,” Rodriguez said. “It was really amazing, and I could not have been more proud at that time to be a Delta Sig, and a [Illinois State] Redbird,” he said. Where one might expect a nightmare scenario, we see a unifying experience. How do we get there? Mark Zappa, Illinois State ’82, ACB Vice-President and the man in charge of the reconstruction of the house, was in disbelief when he first received the call that night in 2011. When he answered the phone around midnight, Zappa remembered, ‘My first thought was, they’re pulling a prank on me!’” There were times in Zappa’s couple of decades and change on the ACB where he had gotten late night calls; “the toilet’s broken!” someone might say. But when the calls kept coming rapid fire in April of last year, Zappa knew this one was probably for real. He hit the road immediately, still on the fence about the likelihood the chapter house was in real danger. The chapter had just nailed down a contract earlier that month to have a modern sprinkler system installed by 2013. The timing was almost too perfect. When Zappa arrived he saw a roof ablaze, with fire and smoke poking through the top floor windows behind Epsilon Omega’s four pillars. “Well, I guess it isn’t a joke, you know?” he remembers thinking. “It was kind of an eye opener,” he says. Meanwhile, two hours away at his home near Chicago, Rodriguez had already snapped into recovery mode. “I talked to the [undergraduate] president,” Rodriguez said, “asked him if everyone was out of the house, and he assured me they were.” “So from there I immediately called the university on-call people and got that ball rolling, then talked to other ACB members and we had three [at the house] within twenty minutes,” Rodriguez said. By the time fire fighters contained the inferno, the fire and subsequent water damage had claimed everything but the shell of the building. The roof was gone, a victim of the flames that would soon be immortalized on YouTube. The undergraduates called their brothers and friends to find somewhere to sleep for the night – none of them knowing what to expect next. The entire ACB was in Normal, Ill., by 3 a.m., Rodriguez arrived last, having driven the farthest. By then, the fire had

been contained and the house was obviously a total loss. ACB members agreed to get a little rest and meet first thing in the morning. At 6:30 a.m., the recovery process began in earnest. In that initial meeting, the ACB mapped out a recuperation strategy. The ACB set up a 2 p.m. meeting, away from the prying eyes and cameras of the media, where the chapter and alumni could meet with representatives from the university, the Red Cross and Delta Sigma Phi headquarters that afternoon. Ry Beck, Delta Sigma Phi Director of Education, then Assistant Director of Chapter Advancement, drove out from headquarters to be there. A liaison from the Red Cross, University Health System, and university housing representatives were also in attendance. “The first thing was,” Zappa remembered, “where are the guys going to sleep?” Rodriguez’s call to the university early that morning immediately paid off. Within days, Illinois State administrators put the displaced active members in a residence hall on campus, where they remained for the rest of the semester. “Everybody was there together; everybody took off time from work; everybody was just making sure these guys were taken care of, had a place to live, would get their money back… it was just phenomenal,” Rodriguez said. For three more days the ACB and the rest of the team met with various parties. They orchestrated meeting after meeting after meeting, with no shortage of questions to be answered. “Every 10 minutes there was a new issue to deal with,” Rodriguez said. And although the board members had to take time off work and time away from their families in order to completely immerse themselves in finding solutions, Rodriguez doesn’t think it could have gone any better.

Alumni Corporation Board For the 2011-2012 school year, the undergraduates lived in rental housing at 410 Oak, a fraternity house now occupied by Tau Kappa Epsilon. The undergraduates persevered. Their story of hardship and triumph made its way around the media outlets that once hovered outside their secret meeting room. Two years later, the chapter is back in its original house on 711 Kingsley, with a new roof, new interior, and a fresh start. Now, finally, the members can live much the same as they did before. “There was news cameras in here last week,” one undergraduate said. “We’re used to it now.” “By the time I came home,” Rodriguez remembers, “[I knew] we made a total difference, we got through this, and some people may not have.” So what’s the key? Why did the Epsilon Omega chapter at Illinois State make it through stronger than before? On this campus where overall fraternity membership is plummeting? “A lot of that credit goes to Zappa and everyone else who’s been a part of the team,” Rodriguez said. “To the university, the other ACB members, to the alumni who have donated a lot of money to make the year a little easier on us – to make sure we get there. It really was the definition of a team effort.” Rodriguez is quick to thank everyone who helped along the way. But those around him believe the project went as well as it did, in part, due to a well-functioning ACB. Zappa, who has been involved with the chapter or ACB pretty much since his initiation in 1980, believes the current Alumni Corporation Board is as cohesive as it has ever been. With two alums working for his construction company responsible for the upkeep of the house, and with the constant state of repair typical of any college living environment, the undergrads see at least one alumnus on a fairly regular basis. Illinois State has a fully functioning ACB. And while no relationship is perfect, the ACB has a fully functioning relationship with the undergraduate members, making for

a pleasant environment for both sides. The traumatic event helped strengthen this relationship. Trauma and crises act as catalysts, for better or worse. So what about the chapters that don’t want to deal with tragedy to prove their success? It starts with quality leadership at the top. For his part, Rodriguez brings great communication skills to the table. “Not many people live in Normal,” Claude Warren, Director of Operations, told the Carnation. “Three members of the ACB live in Normal or Bloomington, the sister city, but most of the alumni and the rest of the ACB reside in the greater Chicagoland area.” Because of the distance and time, dedication is a must for an ACB. “Rodriguez has an engaging personality, and he has a very dedicated group. He doesn’t have to rally the troops constantly,” Warren said. That’s the second key—the group. Everyone from the president to the secretary is dedicated to his specific niche on the board at Epsilon Omega. Asked for the key to ISU’s success, Mark Zappa said, “It’s alumni actually doing their job. Everybody’s got their role.” Zappa described Rodriguez as the face guy, the “rah-rah” type. Then there’s Ryan Osolin, Illinois State ’03, the treasurer, whose ability to govern chapter finances was made drastically simpler when the chapter switched over to Omega Financial. “I used to be the treasurer,” Zappa said. “It used to just be an inquisition for undergrads who owed money. Omega Fi changed all that,” Zappa said. Secretary Jeff Fink, Illinois State ’00, keeps the chapter website, www.deltasig1.com, going, pumps out newsletters to keep local alumni in the loop, and other various other tasks. Don’t be surprised if you see him at the chapter house. Zappa handles the brick-and-mortar investment, the house. And Rodriguez, the president, well he makes sure it all gets done. Thirty years after his initiation, Zappa says working with the house has “become a hobby, kind of. I almost feel like the [chapter] is a child of mine.”


The ACB’s strategic objectives moving forward out of the recovery phase revolve around improving the college experience for undergrads. Specifically, Rodriguez would like to get an alumni network up and running. “Step one is to get back to normalcy and get back to focusing on undergraduate and alumni development,” Rodriguez says. The plan includes providing job and internship opportunities for the undergrads by setting up get-togethers where alumni can network with undergrads in their same field. Normalcy in Normal, Ill. The fraternity made it through one of the more difficult scenarios you can imagine.

Growing ACB

Back to our question from above: what about an ACB that doesn’t have a tragic event to bring them closer? Beta Kappa at the University of Alabama was founded nearly 90 years ago, in 1933. After reorganizing late in the last decade, the chapter officially rechartered in 2010. For the first two years, Beta Kappa and ACB drove towards one singular goal: becoming an active chapter of Delta Sigma Phi. “When you’re a colony (new chapter), setting goals is easy; you just want to become a chapter,” David “Glenn” Reeves, Alabama ’80, the current ACB President, said. Two years past rechartering, the men at Alabama recruited 39 men and have moved into a beautiful new house. The University of Alabama’s Greek system is a behemoth wrought with old traditions and long-established unwritten rules by which the Greek organizations are expected to play. Beta Kappa went out and immediately bucked those norms, recruiting and retaining members who didn’t necessarily fit the typical southern fraternal stereotype. The willingness to do what’s right has everyone excited about the possibilities in Tuscaloosa. “You have to do the right thing, even when it’s not the popular decision,” Reeves says. “If you do that, they’ll respect you for it.” What’s amazing isn’t just how well the chapter is recruiting or the stands it has taken—it’s that the group is following a course it set. “As an alumni corporation, we can’t say, ‘you’re going to do this, this, and this,’” Reeves said. A board certainly can take that approach, but it illustrates a thinly-veiled distrust of the very men they’re trying to help become better. Where’s the benefit in doing everything for the undergrads? There’s very little room for personal growth there. “We don’t try to determine every step they make,” Reeves said.

For such a young chapter in the northwest, building an ACB meant having to constantly reinvent the wheel.

Not every Alumni Corporation Board has the advantage of generational diversity. Delta Sigma Phi colonized at the University of Oregon in 1996, chartering (Theta Rho) two years later. At the same time, the university and town of Eugene bloomed into a nationally prominent university with real name recognition. Theta Rho doesn’t own a house because, “we’re really young, only been around since 1996…and the housing market at U of O has become increasingly competitive,” Ian Trumbo, ’04, president of the Theta Rho ACB, said.

“Everything they’d be working on for the next three years, when the next guy took over, he’d have to reinvent the wheel,” Trumbo said. So Trumbo and his team have built a sustainability model at Oregon. He has been meeting with small groups of three-to-four alumni whom he knows can make a difference for the chapter if they go all in. Then, earlier this year, Trumbo organized a bigger meeting to follow up—35 men showed up, plus Delta Sigma Phi Director of Volunteer Development Claude Warren. “I didn’t hardly hear the same pledge class twice,” Warren said. “They have the potential to be a great group. All ages seem to be more represented.” With younger groups, it’s important to remember that a gentleman who graduated before the millennium had a different experience than the guy who graduated in ’07. There’s a low ceiling on age for a chapter in existence just more than a decade. After that meeting, alumni involvement spiked. Then a non-member galvanized the group. When the house cook lost her car in an accident—she had been with the chapter for a very long time and was “very involved in our chapter’s growth,” according to Trumbo—the alumni and undergraduates all worked together to fundraise money to go towards helping her get into a new vehicle. In just four days they raised over $2,000 and more continued to come in. “Things like that remind me of the kind of unique and special community we have here at Theta Rho,” Trumbo said. “I just want to continue to be a part of it.” The Oregon ACB has two long-term goals; owning a house in an increasingly competitive fraternity/sorority system and Eugene housing market, and expanding the alumni involvement at Theta Rho. So far they’re well on their way to the second goal. But with or without a chapter house, an involved and invested ACB can make all the difference in driving toward our mission: to build better men.

Alumni Corporation Board Instead of laying out the course and making sure the undergrads don’t deviate, Reeves says, “They just have to have a map.” “We’ve asked the boys to come up with what we call fiveyear goals. I’m not a believer in a one-year plan. A plan should be achieving a long-term objective; otherwise your victories are short-lived,” Reeves said. Reeves brings 17 years of experience in corporate America with him. He served for 11 years as the vice president of a Fortune 500 company. The experience offers him with some insight on how to run the business side of fraternal operations—essentially one of two main functions of the ACB (the other being that of an advisory board). At the first chapter meeting of the year, Beta Kappa discussed its long-term strategy then condensed it into a yearly list of goals. Members post those goals all over the house, a constant reminder of their purpose. “We ask, what is your job here? To get an education and grow as a man,” Reeves said. Reeves’ board is composed of members from three

separate generations. With that diversity, the chapter has a variety of advisory possibilities. “We have a nice mixture of undergrads, recent grads, moderate-to-long-term graduates, and we even have a Delta Sig from another university who has been there for us since day one of the ACB,” Reeves said. Ultimately, the key to a highly functioning ACB is the presence of invested volunteers. Reeves has been involved since the 1990s, and he believes in the ability of the alumnus to affect positive change at any chapter. “Volunteering with the chapters shows the younger guys we are still involved and interested in them,” Reeves said. “It shows them that it isn’t just about now—the bond of brotherhood is something after college. It’s a life long commitment.” Volunteering isn’t just in the chapter’s best interest, though. Volunteers themselves get something out of the time they commit to the Fraternity. “The benefits of volunteering don’t have to be tangible,” Reeves said. “Volunteering makes you feel good – the feeling should be all you need, and it is for me.” “They need us now more than ever,” Reeves concluded.

Gannon Advisor Inspires, Leads Chapter Advisors span the Delta Sig collegiate community. At the bare minimum, advisors act as a sounding board for members when they have questions. Gannon undergraduates and alumni don’t know bare minimum – they know Father Jason Glover – an actively involved advisor who serves as the beating heart of the Gamma Rho chapter. Glover began his time at Gannon with Delta Sigma Phi when the Fraternity reorganized on campus in May 2010. “A young man I knew before he started college wanted to get involved and decided he wanted to start a fraternity on campus, so he reignited Delta Sig,” Glover said. “He approached me at lunch one day and asked if I’d be interested in helping out.” From there, the rest is history --- he has loved Delta Sig ever since. Glover said his experience has been unforgettable. “The experience of going through colonization and then getting our charter was a highlight for me and our founding fathers,” Glover said. The chartering was a peak of excitement for Gannon. Glover said he felt a challenge following the chartering. “There was so much excitement after chartering, but we had to keep the momentum going,” Glover said. “There was so much more we could accomplish – there were new goals we could set.” Gamma Rho’s past Chapter President Keefer Kopco, ’11, said, “Having Fr. Glover means that we’ll never truly lose sight of what our end goals are. He constantly reminds us to strive for excellence and be better men.” Glover dedicated himself to his role as chapter advisor. He provides guidance and assistance to the Gamma Rho chapter. Although he acts as a mentor, he is careful not to hover over the members.

Father Jason Glover with members at Gannon University. “There is a healthy balance between helping them grow and letting them develop on their own,” he said. “I let them take care of internal matters internally, and I provide guidance.” Glover thinks the key to being a successful advisor is to avoid being overbearing and allow the undergraduates to make some of their own mistakes and learn from them. “Fr. Glover is really the rock that holds up our chapter. When the guys feel disheartened, he’s the one that starts looking at a situation a different way; but in the same vain, when they get out of hand, he’s not afraid to get them in line,” Kopco said. Aside from mentoring, Glover also participates in Fraternity events and philanthropy activities – he prides himself on being a very handson advisor. Although Glover is not an initiated member of Delta Sigma Phi, he still holds the Fraternity close to his heart and beams with pride for the organization. “I see Delta Sig as a Fraternity that tries its best to live life with integrity,” he said. “Integrity in the classroom and in relationships within the Fraternity and society.”

Leadership Institute Reflecting back on the end of five days of personal leadership developed and paid for by generous Delta Sigma Phi alumni from across the country, Honeycutt seemed momentarily at a loss for words when asked to describe the experience. “Monumental” he finally offered. “I have rediscovered myself, and I have found a new love for Delta Sigma Phi.” Steve Deptola, an engaging and athletic member of the Alpha Iota new chapter at Ohio State University, who also happens to be the academics chair, offered an even stronger assessment: “It has shattered how I approach leadership. I have the tools to go out and tell people, ‘If you follow me, I can lead you in the right direction.’” Blake Pederson, past president of the Delta Delta chapter at Purdue University, whose leadership coursework already requires an extra page of his resume to list, thought the Leadership Institute offered something different than other training events he has attended: “Leadership Institute pushed me outside my comfort zone and forced me to consider how I could change my leadership style to get back in my zone. My leadership so far has been about speaking out and being heard. What I’ve learned here is that some of the most powerful leadership is sometimes provided when I talk the least.” These are just some of the perspectives of the brothers chosen from across the country to attend Delta Sigma Phi’s pinnacle leadership training event, held amid the wilting cornstalks and withered soybeans of Central Indiana in the hottest part of

the summer. Undergraduates spent hours hunkered down in intensive classwork while soaking in a curriculum built around the five exemplary practices of leadership laid out by James M. Posner and Barry Z. Kouzes in their the best-selling book, “The Leadership Challenge,” now in its fifth edition. But the undergraduates also balanced their study time with carefully tailored activities, designed to test their leadership skills in real-world settings. It was during one of those sessions that Felix Navarro, current President and past social chair at the Gamma Epsilon chapter at San Jose State University, came face to face with his “leadership moment.” Reflecting back on his struggle as part of team attempting to climb to the top of a 40-foot rock wall in the heat of the midday sun, Navarro said, “I’m not used to failing. I’m the person who is used to taking charge. I haven’t failed in something for a very long time. I inspire people and encourage others, but for the first time, while I was failing, it wasn’t me who was doing the encouraging, it was me who was failing, and the experience of being brought through that experience by others was not something that I could have gotten anywhere else. It’s something that I will definitely keep in mind as I go back home to new responsibilities on my campus.” Salem Awwad, the chapter president of Zeta Chi, University of Alabama-Birmingham, a man with an outsized personality and a physique to match, also found his humbling moment at Leadership Institute. “I

came here to put another checkmark on my resume,” he said. “I learned how to be champion and a cheerleader, and I learned what it was like when other people cheer you on and encourage your heart. I want to take that back with me. I want to make sure that other people have that feeling when they do something well.” “My ideas on leadership are completely changed,” said Seth Engelman, a self-described country boy with a lanky frame and a deep southern drawl. “I thought you had to be gung-ho, strong to be a good leader. But now I know that you sometimes have to just step back and ask, ‘What can I do?’ Leadership is not about being directive. It is about modeling the way.” Engelman, Theta Omega’s (Georgia Southern) social chair, also commented on the important role played by alumni, often themselves Leadership Institute grads, who facilitate the program in a smallgroup formats. Engelman said the contribution of time and advice from the 10 facilitators and trainers who attended – as well as the many alumni from across the country who funded the program – made a deep impression on him: “I have a whole new appreciation for this fraternity. I had no idea the alumni cared so much. After going through this process, I’ve come to realize that y’all love us, y’all care—even those of us tucked away down in the borough.” Karlton Smith, the pledge director and brotherhood chair of Beta Beta chapter at the University of Missouri and a three-way legacy of his chapter and fraternity through his father, Steve

“It has shattered how I appro I have the tools to go out and tell people, ‘If you follow me, 16

T h e C a r n a ti o n | D e l t a si g . o r g


Smith, Beta Beta ’76, and his uncles, Karl and John Adrian (Beta Beta, ’78 and ’80), briefly contemplated skipping the Leadership Institute experience in favor of a last-moment opportunity for a lakeside vacation with friends. In hindsight, he says, “That would have been a horrible decision. This was a life-changing experience. To the alumni who funded this program, all I have to say is this: ‘Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.’” For Kelly Ebler, a senior music major and a former recruitment chair at Gamma Xi chapter at the University of North Texas, the experience also was a once-in-a-lifetime event. “When I read through the book, and I saw Henry Ford’s quote about the goal of his life being ‘to make the horse obsolete,’ it made me stop and think, ‘Maybe my goals aren’t all that far away after all’,” he said. The Leadership Institute is an annual program funded through donations provided by Delta Sigma Phi alumni who buy into the concept of using the fraternity model of building better men to change the world. It has been recognized and copied by other fraternities. It is available only to undergraduate members of Delta Sigma Phi. So far, the program, which costs approximately $1,000 per undergraduate and is offered at no cost to the best and brightest of the fraternity’s members, has graduated nearly 1,000 leaders.

2013 Delta Sigma Phi Convention #DSPCONV13 July 18-21, 2013, Arizona Biltmore, Phoenix AZ


Donor Spotlight

Young Alumni DONOR SPOTLIGHT Drew Burney,

A

Shorter ’09

fter being initiated at Shorter College in 2009, Drew Burney had the opportunity to attend a Regional Leadership Academy, which was funded and sponsored by the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation. “The ideas and people we were exposed to at that event made a lasting impression on me,” Drew said. Many of the speakers there were Delta Sigs who had

46

T h e C a r n a ti o n | D e l t a si g . o r g

been successful in the business world, a path that Drew wanted to follow. Then, at the last national convention in Orlando, Drew learned that alumni donations were what made it possible for him to participate in that event. Donations from alumni similarly fund The Leadership Institute, Delta Sigma Phi’s top training academy for undergraduates. “I always thought that our undergraduate dues paid for things like that,” Drew said. “When I learned that alumni donations were largely responsible for those opportunities, I vowed to help when I could.” Drew graduated from Shorter, located in Rome, Ga., in December 2011 with a bachelor of business administration degree in marketing and management. He soon landed a job as a management trainee at Enterprise Rent-A-Car and remembered the opportunity provided to him by the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation. “When the Foundation called and asked me to contribute, it was a simple choice,” Drew said. “I didn’t hesitate at all.” He pledged $1,000 a year for five years, a gift that made him a member of the foundation’s 1899 Society. The pledge also made him a first-time donor only a year or so after graduation from college at age 22. “I wish more young Delta Sigs fresh out of college would do this,” he said. “The fraternity has given us so much and provided some great opportunities. I’m a big believer in repaying the debt I owe Delta Sigma Phi. My gift is a start, and when I can afford more, I hope to increase the amount I’m giving.” Like many Delta Sigs, Drew counts his fraternity brothers among his best friends. He expects some of them to be there for his wedding next June. “I was born in Alabama and moved to Georgia when I was 5,” Drew said. “I was fortunate to get a great education at Shorter. But that was supplemented by the great experiences I had as an undergraduate in Delta Sigma Phi. “Seeing those older alumni invest in the fraternity and come back to help train undergraduates in life skills made a big impression on me. My intention is to do the same, and someday I hope I’ll be successful enough to lead one of those seminars at The Leadership Institute.” Drew challenges other recent graduates to join him in contributing to the foundation. “We are on a mission to make Delta Sigma Phi America’s Leading Fraternity,” Drew said. “In some small way, I hope my contribution will help make that possible. The concept of Better Men, Better Lives is important to me, and a stronger Delta Sigma Phi can bring that dream to reality.” Young alumni interested in following Drew’s lead can contact a foundation representative at national headquarters.


W

hen Bob Dathe was looking for a college back in the 1950s, one thing that attracted him to California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo was that it lacked a large Greek system. Coming out of high school, fraternities didn’t appeal to him at all. After arriving on campus, however, he decided that something was missing in his college life, particularly a social life and all the benefits of developing lifelong friendships that would be important in the business world. Fortunately for Bob, Delta Sigma Phi was in the process of establishing the first nationally affiliated group on campus (there were two local fraternities), and Bob decided to check out the newcomers. He pledged and was initiated in 1958. Today, Bob believes his decision to join Delta Sigma Phi was one of the best of his life. “I made lifelong friends there,” he said. “I married the dream girl (Carlotta), and another of the brothers married my wife’s sister. Both of my sons went through the chapter there, and my own brother was initiated into the fraternity at UCLA. So Delta Sigma Phi has deep roots in our family.” The best part of college, Bob said, was being a part of the fraternity and helping as it grew and finally got chapter status at a university that was initially reluctant to embrace national fraternities. Bob graduated in 1960 with a degree in mechanical engineering, and he credits his fraternity, along with his degree, for helping him to become successful. “People who don’t join a fraternity have no good way to reconnect with their university after graduation,” Bob said. He should know. Epsilon Rho has one of the most active alumni groups in Delta Sigma Phi and stages annual events to bring alumni together. “Most of the guys leading those events are from the 1970s, but a lot of them have become good friends despite the fact that we weren’t in school at the same time. That wouldn’t happen if you lived only in a dorm. “The fraternity helped me in so many ways, and I believe in giving back to things that helped me.” That philosophy led Bob to begin contributing to the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation many years ago. Now that he owns his own company, A&B Die Casting in Hercules, Calif., he’s become a regular contributor. A few years ago, he pledged $10,000 to the foundation. Bob’s father founded the company. Bob ran it for many years, and his son Stephen is now in charge. “So the company has been in our family for three generations,” Bob said. In the business world, Bob has noticed that fraternity men make good employees. “It’s obvious that fraternities build good character and leadership skills,” he said. “You typically don’t learn those things in a classroom.”

Alumni DONOR SPOTLIGHT Bob Dathe,

Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo ’58

His company’s accountant is a good friend and a member of Hilgard Chapter of Delta Sigma Phi at the University of California-Berkeley. “That chapter is starting up again, and I’m going to a tailgate with that group this weekend. As you move around the business world, you run into Delta Sigma Phi members in many places.”

Pyramid of Excellence Winners Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity named seven chapters as winners of the Pyramid of Excellence Award for the 2011-2012 school year. The Pyramid of Excellence award is the highest award presented to Delta Sigma Phi chapters nationwide, and recognizes those chapters who have been judged the most outstanding in all areas of chapter operations and programming. The following chapters received the 2012 Pyramid of Excellence Award Winners: Alpha Lambda – Millikin University Alpha Pi – Michigan State University Alpha Upsilon – Kansas State University Alpha Chi – Stetson University Beta Mu – Transylvania University Gamma Epsilon – San Jose State University Delta Epsilon – Missouri University of Science & Technology The seven chapters receiving the Pyramid of Excellence set the bar for all Delta Sigma Phi chapters. These men outperform their campus peers in areas of retention, recruitment, organization size and GPA. Four other high performing chapters were named Chapters of Distinction for the effort they put forth for last school year: Alpha Eta – Ohio Northern Alpha Sigma – University of Maryland Alpha Tau – Albion College Zeta Lambda – Rose-Hulman

Chapter Highlights Millkin (Installed April 16, 1921) • 96% of members are involved outside of the Fraternity • 26 more members than campus fraternity average “The Pyramid means a lot to us,” past Chapter President Caleb Buscher, ’10 said. “We continue to put forth the extra effort because we realize that there are a lot of new chapters out there.”

Fraternity Volunteers

Volunteers Give Back to DSP Volunteers come in all different forms, and, while vast amounts of differences exist, one thing stays constant throughout the personalities of each volunteer: their bond of brotherhood and love for Delta Sigma Phi is so strong, they feel the need to give back. Delta Sigma Phi spoke with two ACB presidents to find out what they do… and what makes them give back to Delta Sig.

Matt Zeedyk, Ohio Northern ’97 Matt Zeedyk currently serves as his chapter’s ACB president and believes in paying the debt to his Fraternity. Fifteen years ago, he had no idea how much he would be in debt to the Fraternity. Zeedyk’s Delta Sig career started out pretty average; he only had one leadership role during his time at Ohio Northern – house manager. “I didn’t put as much effort into the Zeedyk presents Thomas Fraternity as I should Hagan, ’61, with the Loren C. have as an undergraduate, Schoenberger Alumnus of the so I decided to volunteer,” Year Award. he said. Zeedyk starting putting in the effort right after graduation – he joined Ohio Northern’s ACB the following fall. Volunteering offered great things for him as well as the chapter right off the bat. “I still wanted to be involved with my college friends, but I was in the real world, and I thought it could offer an advantage. Our ACB didn’t have anyone younger so we thought the guys could relate to me,” he said. Zeedyk credits the Fraternity for putting his life together and helping mold him into the man he is today. “If it wasn’t for Delta Sig, I wouldn’t have met my wife, my friends, and I probably wouldn’t have graduated. The Fraternity gave me way more than I can ever give back, but volunteering is the best way to try,” he said. “You don’t realize what the Fraternity gave you until you get into the real world.” Although Zeedyk graduated over a decade ago from Ohio Northern, he never really left. He dedicates the majority of his free time to the Fraternity. “Being a volunteer isn’t just coming back on homecoming. Volunteering lets you see these kids grow. It’s nice to see these kids develop leadership skills when they don’t even know it’s happening. Volunteering really is developing and building better men.”

Zeedyk has the same lasting impact on his chapter the Fraternity had on him. “(Matt) Zeedyk has been the most passionate alumnus from the Alpha Eta Chapter. He is willing to do anything to help out the chapter and has helped evolve the chapter to win honors such as a Pyramid of Excellence. Thankfully at the Alpha Eta Chapter, Zeedyk is surrounded by many other passionate alumni on our Alumni Board that sets goals for the undergraduates to accomplish,” Chapter President Kevin Carper, ’09, said. “Without Matt, the Alpha Eta Chapter would not be what it is today, and every undergraduate who has had the pleasure to work with him is thankful for the time and effort he has put into the chapter.”

Robby Martin, Kentucky ’03 For University of Kentucky ACB President Robby Martin, volunteering is about enhancing and enriching the lives of those men with whom he comes into contact. On an undergraduate level, Martin and fellow ACB members assist with operational items like finding a chapter house on campus, as well as developmental items such as developing leadership skills. In 2009, the Theta Mu chapter and ACB worked towards the opportunity to move undergraduates into a house on UK’s campus. “My biggest accomplishment (on the ACB) has been securing our house,” Martin said. “I worked with a team inside our alumni base.” Being on the ACB has personal benefits, too. Martin said volunteers not only bring professional expertise to the Fraternity, but they also build skills, too. “Volunteering also helps build new skill sets – for example, if you are the treasurer, you can grow your finance skills.” Having volunteers connected to a chapter has a clear benefit in Martin’s view: connections and networking. “Volunteers help undergraduates make career connections,” Martin said. “We can connect them to networks with graduate students as well as professionals in their area of interest. Volunteering helps us enhance the lives that come after us and makes our chapter stronger.”
