Florida Beta (Rollins) Celebrates 80th Anniversary



Nearly 100 alumni attended the 2014 Rollins College Spring Reunion to celebrate the chapter’s 80th anniversary. Alumni traveled from as far as California, Colorado, New Mexico and Italy!

During the weekend, many alumni stayed at the Alfond Inn just off campus, where they rented the 5th floor and the hospitality suite. On Saturday night, current undergraduate brothers joined the alumni to participate in the College’s Affinity Dinner. Phi Delta Theta was recognized at the dinner for its longstanding contributions to the college and the community.

Tom Zapcic, ’85, was the organizer of the group and spent almost a year in communications with Phi Delt alumni to help promote and encourage their attendance. Tom also arranged accommodations, including the hospitality suite and put together a schedule of events. For his efforts, fellow brothers gifted him a blue blazer with a Phi Delt insignia on the pocket. Tom was also presented with the “Alumni of the Year Service Award” by Rollins College and will receive this at a presentation at the March 2015 Reunion weekend. Many brothers will be attending to support Tom’s accomplishments.

Tom shared, “I believe most brothers would say- Although separated by time and distance, once together again it felt like we had never left each other. This is a testament to the Brotherhood of Phi Delta Theta!”
