As you may have noticed there has not been new content posted on the website recently. This is due to a problem that is preventing most user accounts from posting. In addition, we have been unable to change permissions for new users to allow them to post.
This current site has had a good eight year run, but we are now working in the background to reconstruct and update our website, and expect it to be complete at some point in October.
In the meantime, please check our Facebook Page for the latest news from the Iota Delta Chapter.
Over the winter quarter break, a group of 13 Brothers from the Iota Delta Chapter ventured to Aspen, Colorado for the 8th annual Pike Aspen ski trip. This year's group spanned 11 years of Rose-Hulman graduating classes, 2004-2015. Pictures and video will be posted on the Iota Delta Facebook Page and Iota Delta Alumni Facebook Page soon.
I have some fun announcements to share about the Chapter and Alumni Association:
25th Anniversary Banquet
The Alumni Association says a giant “thank you” to every alumnus who attended Iota Delta’s 25th Anniversary Banquet earlier this month. Over thirty alumni and their guests spent the weekend in Indianapolis to celebrate at the gorgeous Mavris Arts and Entertainment Center. Some alumni even traveled to Terre Haute the day before to participate in the initiation of Beta Eta class.
Iota Delta alumnus Tim King and his wife Megan photographed the event. Photos are available online and can be found at http://pictage.com/1391861. Thank you Tim and Megan for doing a fantastic job!

After a very successful Rush Period, we are proud to welcome the 36 new members of Pi Kappa Alpha. We are truly excited about each and every one of them. We look forward to getting to know them during the associate period as they learn about what Pi Kappa Alpha stands for.

This fall, brothers came together to find the most best men on campus. Brothers showed freshmen the House, took them out to dinner and events, and most importantly, showed them the strong bonds of brotherhood. Thanks to Jacob Schuenke, the chapter was organized and energetic during this rush period, eagerly anticipating Bid Tuesday.
This Saturday, a group of brothers went out to Rose-Hulman and participated in the walk to end Alzheimers. They raised money for the cause while walking around the track and down Heritage Trail in support of those who have been personally affected by Alzheimer's disease. Pi-Kappa-Alpha also won the team spirit award for the event.
This past Saturday, the volleyball girls had a tournament at Rose. The men of Pi-Kappa-Alpha were there to show their support and enthusiasm. They plan to continue attending games and cheering on our volleyball team throughout the season.
Here is a picture after the first layer of asphalt was put in place:
Several more pictures have been posted in our Facebook group.

As the Convention comes to a close, I am sure that those of us who could attend are excited to come back to the chapter and ready to have a great year. We did not receive the prestigious Robert Adger Smythe Award, but we did receive the following achievements:
*Orians Chapter Excellence Award
*100% ppka club
*Finalist for chapter management, ritual, risk awareness, recruitment, and athletics programming awards
We have had a great time in Denver and are excited to rejoin the brotherhood at the end of August. Hope you are having a great summer and God bless.
