Restoration of Delta Gamma Chapter at ODU
On Friday, January 29th at the Norfolk Yacht & Country Club, Knight Commander Darren S. Kay (Alpha Eta – Westminster ’88) re-issued the Delta Gamma Charter to the gentlemen of the Old Dominion University Provisional Chapter, the same location of their initial chartering ceremony in 1965. The ceremony and banquet was well attended by over 30 alumni.
The ODU provisional chapter received its provisional certificate on October 26, 2014, and since then the chapter has grown to 37 members and achieved a 2.84 GPA in the spring semester of 2015. Along with completing over 410 hours of community service, the ODU Provisional Chapter participated in the local MDA Muscle Walk, volunteered for the annual Barbour Lights Half Marathon and ODU Day, a college outreach event at Richard Bowling Elementary. The chapter is also heavily involved on campus with members actively involved and holding leadership positions with the Order of Omega, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Young Life, ROTC, Pre-Law Club and over 20 additional honor societies, academic clubs and sport teams. The outgoing Number I, Andrew Houston-Floyd, was also voted by the student body president to serve on the 2015 Homecoming Court.
