2016 Founders’ Day Message

By | DCEF, Statements | No Comments

WHICH MEN WILL YOU CHOOSE TO FOLLOW?

One-hundred twenty-six years ago, after months of discussion, twelve men met on a Monday night in Ithaca, New York and formed The Delta Chi Fraternity.

Those present that night included Cornell alumni Monroe M. Sweetland and Myron M. Crandall, along with undergraduates John M. Gorham, Thomas A. Sullivan, Albert S. Barnes, Thomas D. Watkins, M.J. Flannery, F.K. Stephens, Owen Lincoln Potter, Alphonso D. Stillman, Edward O’Malley, and Fredrick Moore Whitney. These men started our fraternal organization to better both themselves and each other through a close association – the very same reason we continue to exist today.

There are many recognizable names on that list and probably a couple that are not. Both Flannery and Stephens were at the Fraternity’s founding, but it is generally believed they did not maintain their interest in the organization for very long and stopped participating. Therefore, they have not been considered Founders.

Our constitution’s preamble outlines Delta Chi’s four basic principles: promoting friendship, developing character, advancing justice, and assisting in the acquisition of a sound education. Each day, every member – both undergraduate and alumnus – has an important decision to make: will Delta Chi remain a part of his daily life through performance of acts to better himself and others or will he allow it to fade away into his surroundings.

Just like those present on the night the Fraternity was born, some choose to be relevant and make a difference in the world around them by remaining involved in Delta Chi; others do not.

As you enjoy this October 13th in celebration of our founding 126 years ago, stop to consider which example you want to follow. Will you be like Potter, Stillman, Whitney and others who proudly lived and outwardly demonstrated Delta Chi’s four core values? Or will you follow Stephens and Flannery’s example by simply fading into history as an individual who nobody remembers?

If you are one who might have faded, this is not a permanent status. There is no better time than the present to reengage in Delta Chi. Whether you are an undergraduate or alumnus, Delta Chi needs men like you to serve or otherwise give at the chapter, regional and international levels. Had brothers before us not carried that torch, we would not be telling this story today.

The choice is yours. We know which men we follow every day. Happy 126th Founders’ Day, Brothers.

In the Bond,

Welcome Back!
Fall, 2016

Brothers,

On behalf of the Delta Chi Educational Foundation, I would like to extend our sentiments and welcome you back to campus. The 2016-2017 school year is going to be great, and I hope you are as excited for it as we are! If you were able to join us in Louisville this summer for Convention, you received updates on the endeavors and work that both the Fraternity and the Foundation are pursing. And all of these projects are aimed to benefit YOU!

Through the years, Brothers and friends who have believed in the mission of the Foundation have taken action to allow our goals to flourish. Contributions, both large and small, have advanced the Foundation’s ability to enrich the many Delta Chi programs and provide new and exciting opportunities. Our donors have supported your learning through funding excellent keynote speakers at events (such as Duane de Four and the Ashlees during Convention), providing additional support to the “A”s’ Academy in order to make its impact even more profound, and allowing for innovative new programming like the enhanced curriculum at RLCs and the new Emerging Leaders Academy launching next summer.

The Foundation is here to enhance your experience. Whether you are able to gain some personal development through RLC, ELA, Convention, or “A”s’ Academy programming or if your collegiate experience is enhanced via the various scholarships offered throughout the year (applications open this winter) or your Chapter Scholarship Account (CSA), our goal is to make your Delta Chi experience a beneficial and memorable one. I hope you take advantage of these opportunities or get more involved with the Educational Foundation directly through our internship program or by joining the 1890 Society.

I wish you all the best on your endeavors this year!

In the Bond,
