This 2014 Chill-A-Bration would mark it’s seventh year as a mid-winter tradition for the city of Cortland. The event hosted at the downtown marketplace would attract nearly 600+ people and allow restaurants and local business to show off their range of items. The members of Delta Chi help set-up and clean-up the event as well as holding an animal balloon booth for children. There was a great turnout of brothers who were eager to help out the community. Thank you to all the members of the Delta Chi who turned out for another successful week.
The Cortland chapter would like to congratulate the Rho, who were initiated on November 7th, 2013. Delta Chi is excited to welcome the new members and expect much from them. The members include:
Delta Chi Cortland chapter would like to congratulate the Xi Class on their initiation into the Delta Chi Brotherhood. It has been a long road but all the hard work will soon pay off. However, your journey in the brotherhood of Delta Chi has just begun. Being a part of the Delta Chi brotherhood is not just about being part of an organization throughout college. Being part of the Delta Chi brotherhood is a life long commitment that can provide you with many benefits. However, what you get out of Delta Chi is determined by what you put into it. Please take this time to really think about why you wanted to join Delta Chi and what it is you want Delta Chi to provide to you. As a newly initiated brother, everything in the greek system is quite new to you, but soon you will realize that joining Delta Chi was one of the best decisions you ever made.
The Cortland chapter would like to congratulate the Pi class, who were initiated on April 8. These new members are full of potential and we expect much from them. Already, Jake Ritz and Scott Liuzzo got elected for Rush chairmen, and Joe Florio for Member at Large.
Saturday, Head of Ritual, Gregg Hauser went over the initiation ritual, an “found the smallest details for improvement” claimed Scott. Saturday night, the group played in a Delta Chi dodge ball tournament. The fact that they did not have anything to change into did not stop them. They won the tournament in their suits, and we had $500 dollars donated to Jimmy V in our name. Congratulations guys. Richard Kompf boldly claims, “We are clearly the most athletic Delta Chi in the region, and probably the country”.
The third week in February was an exciting week for the members of Delta Chi. The week started off strong on Sunday with the Pi class pinning. Congratulations to our nine new associate members. These associate members are full of potential; they have been selected because they hold the integrity and loyalty that is required to be called a Delta Chi.
The week ended with Chillibration on Saturday, a community festival in downtown Cortland. Our members helped with setup and clean up and made balloon animals for the local children. Chillibration also hosted the polar pie eating contest. Jonathan Rydlewski proudly displayed Delta Chi excellence by winning the contest, having eaten a total of 17 frozen pancakes. Chillibration has proven that not only are the members of Delta Chi eager to help out the community, but also, they can sure as hell eat a crap load of frozen pancakes. Congratulations to all members for another successful and exciting week!
