WELCOME TO THE BROTHERHOOD, GENTLEMEN!
What a week it was! The most stressful week each semester, formal recruitment week, was in full swing! We finished the week with FIVE new associate members, and as always, are continuing to find more.
Monday was our first event of the week, ballrooms. Ballrooms is our formal night, where prospective new members bounce from each fraternity, getting a first glimpse of the men and what they all stand for. Our night turned out to be very successful, as we attracted eleven men to our next event, "Steaks and Swings!"
"Steaks and Swings" took place at President JET Tople's house on the the golf course. We grilled steaks and hit balls on the driving range, as well as playing Wii golf in the living room. All of the brothers had a great time getting to know the new guys and explaining to them why Delta Chi is the best fraternity in the world.
Wednesday our event was "Billiard with the Brothers." Another successful night, we served pizza, drinks, and had plenty of good laughs with each other while playing pool.
Thursday night we closed with our final event, hosting a 2K and Madden video game tournament. We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, threw the football around, played cornhole, and had lots of competition on the TV screen. Quickly after our event, we rushed over to the rec center for our basketball game against Lambda Chi Alpha, where the brothers put up a good fight, though ultimately falling to the first-place team.
Finally on Friday we had bid day, where we got to welcome our new brothers home! After the ceremony, we treated the new associate members to dinner at Grumps Burgers.
As the successful week comes to a close, we will now be back to regular business and welcome our new guys in with open arms and start teaching them what it means to truly be a Delta Chi. Our schedule this week includes chapter on Tuesday, and our final basketball game of the regular season against Sigma Chi on Thursday night at 8:00.
