Fellowship Picture Gallery
Over the years, since Delta's founding in 1927, a significant
heritage has evolved about the Chapter. Tradition reaches into
and affects all phases of our Fraternity. At Delta we feel that
in order for an organization like ours to have a strong service
program, we must also have a strong fellowship program. Our chapter
is proud of the fellowship that we share. The chapter has 3
main fellowship events each year:
Every year Delta brothers help our Auburn Tigers celebrate
their homecoming football game. Since our chapter was founded
on October 31, 1927, we celebrate our anniversary that weekend
as well . The day of homecoming, usually all of the brothers
try and make it to the game. Before the game we welcome alumni
brothers in town by throwing a big tailgate party on campus.
After the game is over, it is time for some fun and fellowship
at the annual homecoming dance.
Much of Delta's social life centers around the Chapter Sweetheart. As the Chapter's
hostess, the Sweetheart helps at parties, banquets, conferences,
and other official functions. Not all chapters have sweethearts,
but this unique position has long been a tradition with Delta.
At the beginning of the winter semester, Delta goes on the
look for a new sweetheart. She is usually a member of a sorority
on Auburn's campus. Canidates are sent by different sororities
and the brotherhood holds Teas in order to meet them. After
the Teas the ladies go through a short interview process.
A new Sweetheart is elected by the brothers of the chapter
and she is inducted at the the Sweetheart Ball.
The Sweetheart Ball is held around mid Febuary. This is a
formal event, for the purpose of honoring the outgoing Sweetheart
and welcoming the newly-elected Sweetheart.
The Spring Banquet, a tradition in years past, has recently
returned to Delta's schedule of events. At this banquet, awards
are presented and the events of the past year are remembered.
