Delta Chi – a fraternity founded in 1890 in the state of New York, is making its way to Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
According to the official Delta Chi website, Texas is part of ‘Region III’ on the Chapter and Colony Directory map. With the Lone Star state already home to four chap- ters throughout the state, TAMUK will soon be the fifth.
Logan Rivera, a former President and Treasurer of his California State University Delta Chi chapter, has now taken on the role of a leadership consultant for the organiza- tion, and in doing so, has been stationed on our campus for the remainder of the semes- ter to oversee the conception of our chapter.
For the first two weeks of this Fall semes- ter, Rivera worked with fellow expansion team members, Kevin Smith and Daniel Henne, in an effort to recruit potential frater- nity members.
Strategies taken to recruit included setting up booths around the Student Union Building and sending out invitations to informational sessions.
“These men [potential members] that are
coming in now – these founding fathers, as we call them – really have an opportunity to make something much bigger than them- selves. So you can come back ten, fifteen years from now to TAMUK’s campus and [say], ‘I helped start Delta Chi here,” said Rivera.
Though the recruitment process is primarily finished for this semester, Rivera discussed how those interested are always welcome to contact the organization for information on how to become a potential member the next time a recruiting period starts up again.
Rivera, a strong believer in the values
his fraternity stands for, spoke passionate-
ly about Delta Chi, saying, “We want to… change the game; we want to break the mold…and in my personal opinion, there are frat boys and there are Fraternity Men, and we really want to grow an organization that is involved with the community.”
Rivera went on to discuss how Delta Chi practices what they preach by informing us that, since 2008, Delta Chi, internationally, has raised over one million dollars for cancer research.
