31 Members Inducted at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
Delta Tau Delta added a new campus to its roll welcoming 31 founding fathers of the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) Crescent Colony on November 8, 2019. Just 25 miles from St. Louis, SIUE is built on the foundation of academic preparation guiding students to thrive in the global marketplace. The colony’s cumulative GPA places it first among the six other interfraternity council member fraternities on the campus with an undergraduate student population of more than 11,500.
“Delta Tau Delta is excited to be at SIUE. It is an up and coming school in the region and aligns well with our emphasis on student development. We are excited to start with such a refreshing group of men and look forward to the day when the Delts are the recognized standard for leadership on campus,” said CEO Jack Kreman.
Senior Chapter Leadership Consultant Cody Nulph (University of South Florida, 2018) led chapter leadership consultants Garrett Swallow (Chapman University, 2019) and Michael Nguyen (Case Western Reserve University, 2019) in establishing the colony at Edwardsville.
“We saw thirty-one young men at SIUE begin their journey to excellence. These men are driven, intelligent leaders who have come together to challenge what it means to be a fraternity gentleman and who are looking to add to the Greek life experience on this already great campus. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for this group of men,” said Nulph.
The Iota Chi Chapter at Lindenwood University provided the Ritual team to perform the induction ceremony at Morris University Center in Edwardsville. The colony’s volunteer advisory team attended the ceremony including Colony Advisor Matt Greaves (Westminster College, 2010), Assistant Advisor Jason Gray (Illinois Institute of Technology, 1991), Assistant Advisor for Risk Prevention Larry Guessfield (Lindenwood University, 2017) and Assistant Advisor for Recruitment and New Member Education Hunter Robinson (Southeastern Louisiana University, 2013).
Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Tyler Manning and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Miriam Roccia also attended the ceremony and were joined by members of the school’s fraternity and sorority community.
