As the semester hit the midpoint and academics began to consume a larger portion of our time, the Greek community was briefly able to relax and enjoy the events of Homecoming. Phi Delts were paired with Gamma Phi and Sigma Nu in what was themed the “Game On” homecoming. The brothers truly got their “game on” in events such as the annual parade, Up ‘til Dawn, and the Bear Bolt race, in which we took third place. Overall it was another successful homecoming and it was great to visit with all the alumni that made the trip to Springfield. We hope to see more of you soon! Blake Pschier Homecoming Chairman

The New Class

The Fall semester has been going well. 30 Phikeia have been busy learning more about the chapter, meeting the active brothers, and going beyond their high school group to get the most out of their pledgeship experience. As mid-term passes, greater focus has been placed on grades and academics. As a Phikeia Educator I continue to emphasize the history of MOEP and Phi Delta Theta, as well as teach them more about how our current Fraternity is run. These two things are very important to me because soon they will be the majority of Phi Delta Theta. These new members are well on their well to becoming active members of Phi Delta Theta.

We were also one of 32 chapters in the country to earn the Community Service Citation, which is awarded to those chapters that are involved within their communities as volunteers and philanthropists.
