I congratulate you on your decision to attend The Pennsylvania State University. Penn State offers you many opportunities to grow and develop academically, morally and socially during your time at college. As you consider the options available at Penn State, you should look into membership in a Greek organization.
College is a time of many changes, and I believe that being part of a Greek organization will help these changes mold you into a more complete individual. At Penn State, we have one of the largest and most active Greek communities in the nation. We've been instrumental in shaping the campus and student life in a positive way. From events that range from Homecoming to Thon, we are not only active participants, but also leaders in the campus community.
Now, you may have some preconceptions of fraternities and sororities from popular movies that depict reckless party animals in debauchery. These stereotypes make for good (and funny) movies, but the reality is that the Greek fraternities and sororities of today are reputable organizations that offer fellowship, academic support, leadership training and participation in campus activities and philanthropy in the community.
If you are someone interested in joining a fraternity, you have opportunities to search for the fraternity that you feel fits you best. I believe our fraternity can help you navigate the transition from high school to college and encourage you to become a man of the same principles we hold in the highest esteem. At Theta Delta Chi, we seek out scholars, future business leaders, communitarians, athletes, many different kinds of campus leaders and all around gentlemen for membership in our brotherhood.
Our recruitment process usually begins by receiving referrals from Theta Delt brothers, campus leaders and alumni who personally can recommend young men with integrity. Our goal is to find young men that will continue the tradition and values our charge has been built upon since 1915 and an individual that we could consider a friend and brother.
I encourage you to come to any of our rush events so you can meet some of our brothers and personally see what we are all about. If you are interested in attending one of our rush events to get to know our brothers, please complete the form below. Also, feel free to contact me, Zach Reigel, Theta Delta Chi Rush Chairman, with any questions or concerns you have about our fraternity and rush in general.
Connect with us on Facebook, LinkedIN and Twitter to keep in contact with the Brotherhood and learn about upcoming events.
