We welcomed our mothers to the Delta Chi house this past weekend with hugs, smiles, and rooms so clean they never once felt the need to nag. For many of the newer members, this was the first time their mothers had the chance to see the place we call home on campus. The older guys’ moms saw yet another installment in the growing brotherhood.
We kicked off the weekend Saturday afternoon with a mother-son bowling tournament at AMF Lanes. Brother Travis Hawks and his mother, Carla Hawks, kicked butt with a combined score of 278!
Then we all headed to the Heidelberg for dinner and an intense trivia game hosted by our very own Ryan “Catfish” McLaughlin. With the help of Cyndie Jones, Andrew’s mother, Team Wundy took the win in a nail-biting tie breaker.
We wrapped up the weekend Sunday morning with brunch at Boone Tavern (best Crêpes in town), after which mothers and sons toured Columbia on their own. A lot of the moms took their sons grocery shopping, an added bonus!
The Missouri Chapter of Delta Chi took to Francis Quadrangle to welcome 12 new men on Feb. 8, 2012, as Associate Members in the fraternity. Current Active Members and dozens of sorority representatives witnessed the traditional Pinning Ceremony at the foot of our beloved columns.
All Active Members were eager to catch a glimpse of our chapter’s future in the making, accompanied by the wonderful ladies of Sigma Sigma Sigma, Alpha Phi, Alpha Chi Omega, Chi Omega and Kappa Delta. The ceremony began with the 12 gentlemen reciting the Associate Member oath and was followed by the formal pinning.
Our executive board threw a reception afterwards where our fabulous new class got a taste of the traditions, alumni and Greek community surrounding the chapter. Formal classes will start Sunday.
