It’s been quite an exciting year so far for the Beta Delta chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon. From our second-ever out-of-state formal to forming new connections around campus, our brothers have really had their hands full. Last spring, the Iota class joined the brotherhood, bringing with them fresh ideas and passion to grow the brotherhood. Brothers Joe Leggo and Eli McConnell became the first of their class to take up leadership roles in the chapter’s cabinet, as scholarship chairperson and community service chairperson, respectively.
The Beta Delta chapter enjoyed its second annual formal in late May. The brothers spent the weekend in Asheville, North Carolina, exploring the historic town, spending time hiking the trails of the Appalachian Mountains, and, of course, busting down the dance floor to “Cotton Eye Joe.”
Additionally, Beta Delta would like to recognize our Social Chair, Logan Lopez, for all the work that he put into not only planning formal, but also for planning countless other social events with Greek life organizations over the last year. From major events like a joint spring party on Milledge with Chi Psi, to smaller mixers with sororities, we couldn’t be more proud of the work that Logan puts in every day for the chapter.
Beyond chapter’s events, our brothers have also been extraordinarily busy over the past year. From Nikolaj Todorovski of Iota class winning a seat as a senator for the Student Government Association at UGA, to Grayson Schofield achieving a million streams on Spotify under the artist name “Bakuto”, even getting featured in the local “Red & Black” news publisher, as well as the DKE quarterly. Our brothers continue to impress and amaze at their ability to make an impact wherever they go, whether it be on campus or studying on the other side of the world in Rome, Paris, Tokyo or Manila.
Overall the Beta Delta chapter is proud of how far we’ve come over the last year–growing our brotherhood, growing our impact, and creating a network of Jolly-Good Fellows. With our brothers helping to enrich each other at the University of Georgia under the Rampant Lion Flag, we are shaping the next generation of strong, young gentlemen who will take on the world.
Many more exciting things are on the horizon this semester, so keep an eye out for another update in early December. Until then,
