Alumni Relations Chair Rocco Danese’s Letter to Chi Grads

Chi Delt Alumni:  

Happy New Year Brothers! I hope this message finds you well during this crazy time. My name is Rocco Danese ’23 and I’m honored to have been elected as the new Alumni Relations Chair for 2021.  

After an extremely challenging 2020, we have many updates on the chapter since our return to campus last week. Last semester, Chi initiated fifteen new brothers (myself included) despite being in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the new initiates have been elected to leadership positions within the fraternity. Our new President Eddie Weber ’22, swimmer and third-generation legacy Delt, has been working urgently and efficiently to ensure Chi Chapter thrives in its 140th on the Hill. 

Chi plans on hosting Winter Retreat soon where President Weber will lead discussions on Chi’s decision to rush the class of 2024 (current freshmen) in the fall of 2021 as only sophomores, juniors, and seniors are on campus this semester due to COVID-19 policies. Interest in Delt is very high so we will have no shortage of men who will seek to pledge in the fall. 

This spring, we will instead dedicate our time to developing the bonds between Chi Delts who have been apart for over a year. Elected Social Chairs, Niall Regan ’21, and Teddy Kamin ’23 will work with Brotherhood Chair Ethan Shapiro ’23 to come up with creative ways to maximize time spent together as a chapter. We believe investing in our brotherhood now will be the most effective way to bring new members into the chapter in the future. 

I am beyond excited to assume the role of Alumni Relations Chair and am looking forward to working with Chi Alums for the rest of 2021. If you have any comments, questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].
