Installation weekend for the men of California Zeta at California State University, Northridge, was like a dream come true. After two years of hard work, Phi Delta Theta initiated the newest brothers into California Zeta and the chapter regained its charter. The men of California Zeta understood the hard work that was needed to make this day happen, and it paid off.
The highlight of the initiation ceremony for many of the brothers was seeing General Council President Chris Lapple pin his son Nicholas, along with other fathers pining their sons. The initiation was a special and emotional moment for the colony members who have dedicated themselves to Phi Delta Theta for two years.
The installation banquet followed the initiation ceremony the next day. At the ceremony, Chris Lapple presented the chapter’s charter to President DeAndre Pierce. The brothers had the chance to pass the gavel and heard a speech by their chapter president.
California Zeta at California State University, Northridge was first founded on campus in April of 1967. The chapter has initiated 992 men.
