Broth erh ood Retreat

Last Semester we added a new brotherhood retreat to


our social calender. For this event we rented out a 25
man cabin in Shakamak State Park and spent the
weekend in the woods. All the brothers had a
phenomenal time and we look forward to doing it
again in the future.
Fi tti ng I nto 610 S. Grant

Contrary to popular belief moving into a fairly new, structurally


sound, and air conditioned house comes with quite a few
challenges. As a brotherhood we recognize that we had a difficult
time making this building fit us last year and the results were
embarrassing. With that being said this new year is off to an
amazing start and we believe we have finally learned how to live in
this house while maintaining the brotherhood we strive for. We
have started filling rooms with more brothers which allows the
closeness we need. New ideas to increase brotherhood are coming
about everyday and we are happy with the direction things are
moving. It is truly a great day to be a Theta Delt.
