Westerville, Ohio – The Ohio Xi Colony of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity was recently accepted by the Otterbein University Senate on March 27, 2013, to complete the process of becoming an official organization on campus. The colony was also accepted by the InterFraternity Council and Student Life Committee earlier this month. The organization was colonized at Otterbein on November 20, 2011, and is now an official Greek organization on campus.
There are now eight fraternities on campus, including one other national fraternity, Alpha Sigma Phi, and local chapters Sigma Delta Phi, Pi Beta Sigma, Eta Phi Mu, Pi Kappa Phi, Lambda Gamma Epsilon and Zeta Phi.
Member Andrew Zellers said, “This has been an exciting month for us. A lot has happened in a short period of time and it is super rewarding to see all of the work we have been doing paying off.” Zellers continues, “This is not the time for us to rest however. We are going to continue the doing same community service and activities that we have been doing. Being installed by our international headquarters is a huge goal for us and we know there is still a lot to be done. We are proud of what we have accomplished already and are excited to officially be a part of the Otterbein community.”
