Pennsylvania Delta’s recruitment for the 2015-2016 school year was an outstanding success. Thanks to the great work by Vice President of Recruitment Werner Glass ’17 and his cabinet, the house recruited 30 new members in the 2014-15 academic year; four in the fall and 26 in the spring. Spring Rush was a little different this year, taking place at the end of the first week of the Spring semester. The rush period included an open meet-the-brothers event at the SigEp House, a Casino Night held off campus, a Flyers game and a dinner out for brothers and rushes. The brotherhood is excited about integrating the new members into the house and looks forward to their future contributions both with SigEp and on-campus.
