Phi Delta Theta Fraternity to Re-Charter at SWOSU


Phi Delta Theta fraternity at Southwestern Oklahoma State University has recently completed all necessary tasks to re-install a chapter on the Weatherford campus, and the Oklahoma Gamma colony will have an initiation this Friday, April 29, on the Weatherford campus.

Alumni of Phi Delta Theta are invited to the ceremony at 5 p.m. in the East Ballroom of the Memorial Student Center.

Phi Delta Theta, located in Oxford, OH, gave approval earlier this month with a unanimous decision from the General Council.

Phi Delta Theta first became a chapter at SWOSU in 1972 and continued until 1993. After a 17-year hiatus, the local fraternity Kappa Gamma Beta searched for a national fraternity to affiliate with. KGB will now be known as Phi Delta Theta.

The re-charter banquet is scheduled for 12 noon this Saturday, April 30, at the Memorial Student Center Skyview Room. The event is open to all friends, family and faculty but RSVP should be made by to or by calling Kyle Johnson at 580.216-2415.

 Kyle Johnson, president of the chapter, said the fraternity extends thanks to the community of Weatherford, Weatherford Mayor Mike Brown, SWOSU Dean of Students Cindy Dougherty, Marty Lockstone and bond #1 Rick Shelby for continued support over the last two years. The fraternity also appreciates Kelley Jewelers for help with its philanthropy events.
