|The Arch: Campaign Update|
If you have not heard, Alpha Delta of Chi Psi has
returned to the University of Georgia. A committed group of Brothers, under the
leadership of the National Office, has begun the re-colonization effort. We are
off to a good start. We received full approval by IFC and UGA in Spring 2012
and subsequently initiated 17 fine young men.
The goal is a viable chapter of 70-80 young men within 4-5 years. The newly
formed Alpha Delta Advisory Board will provide close supervision, mentoring and
oversight. We are fortunate to have a Lodge in a great location. In the current
Athens political environment, that is getting harder and harder to do. We have
an excellent plan with backing from alumni and the National office. This is
going to work.
To assure the viability of Alpha Delta, we have begun a capital campaign with
most of the funds to be used on the Lodge. Though we have a great location, there
is much to do to bring our facility up to date. At this point, we have a
capital campaign team in place and we are beginning to contact alumni Brothers
to ask for their help. When they call on you, I hope you will give a listen to
what’s happening at Alpha Delta and consider supporting the campaign.
This is our chance to solidify the place of Alpha Delta at the University of
Georgia for years to come. Let’s make it happen!
