Big Blu On the weekend of January 18th, Alpha Psi participated in what is now a significant historical event. About 35 Alpha Psi brothers attended the first Big Blu, a Phi Delta Chi brotherhood retreat for the entire Pacific region. Welcoming over a dozen chapters, this three-day event took place at a resort off the shore of Lake Tahoe. From celebrating brotherhood at an Angry Bird-themed social event, attending an elegant dinner cruise, to snowboarding on the slopes, Phi Delta Chi made lasting memories. Alpha Psi will never forget this wonderful experience bonding with distant brothers. Big Blu certainly made it feel like a small world.

Tahoe Chapter Retreat
Brothers headed to Tahoe for the winter brotherhood retreat on January 11th. On the drive up, some encountered heavy snowfall, but the struggle was worth it: the next morning, they woke up to find the softest snow to play in. Some of the brothers did exactly that and enjoyed a day of snowboarding and skiing, while others explored South Lake Tahoe’s shopping center and casinos. In the evenings, brothers bonded over some karaoke.
Throwback Thursday #TBT
On January 24th, Pacific hosted #TBT, a brand new club rush that rallied many organizations together - one of them being Phi Delta Chi. Held at the Alex G. Spanos Center, this event was planned not only to connect students to these organizations, but to fire up the orange and black for the men‘s basketball game against UC Riverside. Since the fraternity’s rush season was already in its final stages, #TBT turned out to be more like a brotherhood event for Alpha Psi. For some brothers, the event also served as a venue for networking with other organizations and discovering new opportunities for leadership experience.
Held at the Stockton Golf and Country Club on January 25th, rush dinner was a classy and professional event that along with potentials, welcomed an impressive number of Alpha Psi Leadership Seminar alumni and Gamma Iota brothers.
