Week in Chapter: Alumni, LC visit during homecoming

Homecoming week seems to be the busiest time of year for any chapter, and Phi Delta Theta Montana Alpha was no exception. In addition to visits from past alumni, building the float and riding in the parade, the chapter’s Leadership Consultant made his biannual visit during the same weekend.

Matt Fritsch of Northwestern Missouri State, Missouri Theta, visited Thursday and left the following Tuesday and met with the executive officers on their current state of their positions. Fritsch also lead a seminar on sexual violence on college campuses.

"His visit was productive as well as fun," said President Joseph Desch. "We look to build off of his recommendations for the upcoming semester."

The annual alumni barbecue was held after the homecoming game Saturday, including members of the chapter’s graduating classes from 1960 to the 1980s. The alumni relived and shared their days at Phi Delt with the current active members.

“It gives me a stronger connection to the organization,” said Phikeia Chris Dillon. “It gave me a perspective on the friendship…”

The chapter collaborated with Kappa Sigma fraternity and Alpha Phi sorority to build the homecoming float. The three were paired up all weekend and rode in the parade together.

“It was fun. It was kind of an impromptu bond-building exercise to interconnect with people from different houses,” said member Max Henshaw.

                On Sunday, following the weekly chapter meeting, the chapter welcomed 10 Phikeia in a bid ceremony to close the Fall 2015 class. The Phikeia followed the ceremony with the group’s first meeting lead by Phikeia educator Andy Mikkola.

The new Phikeia accepted their bids Sunday, the same day the class closed. From left, Chris Dillon, Finn Mikkola, Alex Hilario, Landon Thies, Bill Thompson, Will McKnight, Shane Banzet and Brian Toubman. Photo by Nick Puckett.

Montana Phi Delta Theta: A Sweetheart’s Perspective

There are not enough words to express how important these friendships are to me. It’s not going to be easy for me to write how I feel about the Phi Delts, not because I have nothing to say, but because the words I have to say won’t do them justice.

Montana's playoff scenario heading into the final week of the regular season is simple - win against the Bobcats and you're in...  More than likely at least.
