Fall 2013 Update

In the Fall of 2013, the Beta Charge of Theta Delta Chi writes another chapter in its proud and storied one hundred and forty-three year history. Through those years, Cornell and its Greek life have changed dramatically. The one constant for us, however, has been a strong and united brotherhood, bonded by a passion for our house and for one another. We pride ourselves on maintaining a spirit of individualism while coming together as a brotherhood, and this has proven to be a strong backbone for growth during and beyond members’ undergraduate years, individually and as a group. This past Spring, we added a new class of fine young gentlemen to this enduring brotherhood, and I am thrilled to bring our fraternity into a new year of exciting possibilities and maintained tradition.

A Warm Welcome to All

It is my pleasure to welcome you all to Spring 2012. The brothers of Theta Delta Chi fraternity, and particularly the upcoming E-Board, are proud to say that this will be a particularly busy semester. Firstly, we will be running Rush Week between January 16th and 23d. Rush Week is a great opportunity for students interested in the Greek system to visit one of the most traditional and creative houses on campus. Theta Delta Chi will be having a series of smokers and events designed for prospective members to discover the house and meet brothers. You can find the full schedule for our Rush Week here.

Farewell Until Fall

As another year comes to an end at Thumpty, we reflect on the truly amazing semester our Brotherhood just experienced.  The last four months brought moments of great pride for the Beta Charge, especially the graduation of 25 seniors and the initiation of another promising pledge class.  Congratulations to those Brothers and good luck to the graduates in all of their future endeavors, Spectemur Agendo.

Thumpty’s tradition of hosting musical acts continued throughout the spring semester, including a momentous, first time collaboration with Cornell University.  In April, the University’s Rare Manuscript Division of the Library brought hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa to campus for a symposium on the origins of the genre. 

            The University, at the suggestion of Brothers Jonah Brill, Walter Donner, Tim Lehey, and Ben Weiss, chose the Grand Hall of the Thumpty Mansion as the venue for Bambaataa’s performance.  Photos from that memorable night can be viewed on Thumpty Music’s facebook page.
