Missouri Epsilon (Missouri State) To Break Ground On New Chapter House At Homecoming


SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI, OCTOBER 21, 2012—The Missouri Epsilon Chapter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity announced today that it will conduct a ceremonial groundbreaking event in conjunction with Missouri State University Homecoming festivities.  The gathering will take place at the site of the present and future home of the Chapter, on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 10:30 am (CST).  Guests in the community and media are welcome to attend.

The housing campaign has reached a critical milestone for financial contributions and will proceed with a construction project to build a new Chapter House at 1107 E. Elm Street in Springfield, Missouri.  The vision of building a new Chapter house is a reality due to the generosity of alumni members, parents and community contributors.

The Missouri Epsilon Chapter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity has been an important and consistent part of Missouri State University since its founding in 1985.  More than 500 brothers have been initiated into the Chapter, and Missouri Epsilon continues to positively influence the lives of young men and provide a foundation for a lasting brotherhood.

Throughout their history at Missouri State University, Phi Delta Theta has thrived in areas of academics, campus leadership, athletics, philanthropic endeavors and the development of quality men.  In addition, the Chapter is proud to have been a pioneer in driving an alcohol free fraternity housing environment at Missouri State University.

Construction on the new home, which will house up to twenty-seven (27) members, will begin following the close of the 2012 Fall Semester.  This important project will result in the premier living and learning center for young men at Missouri State University when it opens in Fall 2013.  Design elements include educational spaces, creatively designed sleeping quarters, incorporation of technology innovations, and rooms fittingly named in memory of members of the Chapter.

In addition to the groundbreaking ceremony, alumni and friends will enjoy festivities in conjunction with Missouri State University Homecoming.  To learn more about this project, visit www.missouriepsilon.com.
