Letter from the Alumni Association

Brothers, I hope this message finds you well. I want to tell you a story. Many years ago I found myself at a turning point in my life. I was standing among 5 men who called themselves "brothers". These men told me about a fraternity, Chi Phi, which since 1956, had existed in one form or another at Uconn. One of these men, a new friend, told me about how things once were and about his dream of how they could be again. He told me that if I chose to become a Chi Phi, that we would have a lot of work to do, and that we would be rebuilding a chapter from the ground up. But would it be worth it? I knew it would be a challenge. To find other men of like mind, and to learn how to avoid obstacles that could destroy us. Could it be done? At that point I wasn't sure, but he had convinced me to give it a try. And I am glad that I did. Today I stand with you, brothers of Zeta Delta, to announce some exciting news.

           After a long and difficult selection process, I am both proud and honored to announce to you that Chi Phi has been selected to be housed in the new Greek Village being constructed at Uconn. We were selected with a group of 11 other Fraternities and Sororities to be given this special privilege. The Chapter has worked very hard to position themselves to make this a reality. It was however not a possibility without the help and contributions of all of you. I would like to thank all of you for the support and donations that helped make this a possibility. As we move forward, we will continue to need your help and support as we build a Housing Corporation and keep the Alumni Association growing.

This is a proud time for Zeta Delta, and a proud time to be CHI PHI.....
