Phi Delta Theta national men's fraternity has returned to Southwestern Oklahoma State University and celebrated its colonization with a formal reopening during recent SWOSU homecoming activities on the Weatherford campus.

"We are proud to reconnect the proud traditions of SWOSU and Phi Delta Theta," said Tyler Brack, president of the SWOSU chapter of Phi Delta Theta.

Among the participants in the recent ceremony were Province President Keith Brown of Texas and SWOSU original PDT founding brothers and alumni Rick Shelby and Rick Neil. Also, Weatherford Mayor Mike Brown is a former Phi Delt at SWOSU and also participated in the reopening.

"I'm excited to have them back on campus," said Mayor Brown. "Being a Phi Delt was such a good experience for me in my four years as a member at Southwestern."

Brown said the fraternity system is a good opportunity for today's Phi Delts to learn good leadership skills that will benefit them for life. And, it is a great way to make life-long friends and cultivate great contacts.

A Phi Delt Founders Day dinner is being planned on the SWOSU campus in March when all Phi Delt Theta alumni and friends will be invited. All Phi Delts are asked to contact Cindy Dougherty, dean of students at SWOSU, at (580) 774-3767 or cindy.dougherty@swosu.edu.
