FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Iowa City – September 6, 2016 – The Fraternity’s expansion team is excited to report its latest growth project: beginning the Delta Chi Colony of Texas A&M University at Kingsville (TAMUK).
As a key area alum volunteer and Fraternity Board of Regents member Kenny Sooter stated, “We are excited to be expanding Region III of Delta Chi and we are looking forward to finding the best men to be part of the Colony. TAMUK is a new opportunity for us, and we are grateful to be able to join such a great community.”
The University has experienced great success recently. Most notably, its enrollment has doubled over the past six years, and the Higher Education Almanac selected TAMUK as the fastest growing four-year institution in the country. The campus has five IFC organizations today and plans to grow its Greek community over the next several years.
The Fraternity has four staff members assigned to this endeavor: Logan Rivera (Sacramento ’16), Michael Kennedy (Kansas State ’15), Daniel Henne (Adelphi ’16) and Kevin Smith (Case Western Reserve ’16). These men have been tasked with the challenge of recruiting a group of Kingsville’s finest student leaders to become founders of the colony.
“We have been able to find some really high caliber men in just the few short weeks that we have been on campus,” said Logan Rivera, the lead staff member on the project. “The Greek community here has been very welcoming and supportive of our efforts. I have confidence that the Colony will be extremely successful.”
Colonization efforts will continue throughout the fall semester, with the group’s first pinning ceremony to take place in early September. All area alumni are also invited to a special reception on September 10. You can learn more and follow the group’s progress on Facebook @DeltaChiTAMUK.
