On Sunday, December 8th, 34 young men took on the role as Founding Fathers of the North Carolina Epsilon Colony of Phi Delta Theta at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Family, friends, and alumni all gathered to watch as each brother was given their Colony Pin and Phikeia Manual. Also in attendance were three notable Phi Delt alumni had the honor of pinning each member and giving a special speech after the ceremony. Colony President Thomas McGukin accepted the colony plaque and said a few words on behalf of the colony, announcing that the future is bright for Phi Delta Theta in Charlotte.
Each member is excited as they prepare for the upcoming Spring Rush Week, the first rush week that they will participate in on campus. The North Carolina Epsilon Colony is very much looking forward to being apart of Greek Life on campus. One of the colony’s main goals is to promote leadership throughout UNC Charlotte, while further improving the leadership skills of each individual member. By fulfilling their goals, they will look to stand out in a positive way, setting an example for not only other fraternities and sororities, but the entire student population as well.
North Carolina Epsilon is already busy planning their entire calendar for next year and is eager to get the group moving in the right direction.
