Delta Alpha Raises More Than $25,000 for JDRF One Walk


Undergraduates Look to Build Upon Recruitment Success

Our chapter officers traveled to Kansas City, Missouri, for the annual Western Plains Division Conference this spring. We received an award for outstanding support for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, as we raised more than $25,000 for the JDRF One Walk in Oklahoma City, which was a new division conference record.

On March 2, we had almost 90 brothers sign up to participate in OU’s annual philanthropy, Soonerthon. We raised more than $1,200 for the Children’s Miracle Hospital.

Next up this spring for Delta Alpha will be the Big Event and Relay for Life. Philanthropy is a cornerstone of our fraternity and we always look forward to giving back to our community.

We participated in spring recruitment by signing three men who will join the fall 2018 pledge class. That will bring the new member total to 62 men. If someone you know is rushing this fall, please contact Recruitment Chairman Philip Novak ’21 at [email protected] or (405) 416-0901and he will give you all information on upcoming events.

On February 22, undergraduates and alumni came together at the Shelter to celebrate 97 years of our historic chapter. Special thanks to Mike Johnston ’88 and Mama Lou for putting on the event.

Delta Alpha had its Spring Formal on March 9 at the Cirro Energy Tower, a brand new building in Uptown, and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Downtown in Dallas.

Moms Weekend took place April 5-7. Thank you to Wendy and Scott Thompson for organizing the itinerary.

Each day, the men of Delta Alpha are growing stronger on campus and as brothers. Our freshmen have been involved on campus and are looking forward to making a bigger impact over the next few years. The future of Delta Alpha is bright, and it is always a good day to be a Delt.
