Welcome, Class of Spring ’22!
*dlb* Happy Memorial Day Weekend, my esteemed alumni and honored brothers. It’s ol’ *Dlbwck!* ready to ring in the Summer with a quick introduction to our newest member, Chance Jones.
A member of Linfield’s class of 2025, Chance has family ties to Delta. He took the plunge to join Delta this semester and, with great tenacity and good fun, succeeded where many have failed. What can I say? Ninkasi made the brothers proud, *dlbwck!*
After Brotherhood (also known as Initiation Week), he traded eggmails with yours truly *dlbwck!* to answer a few questions you all might have for him.
What is your major and what about it interests you?
My major is Wine Studies and it interested me because I love the process of making alcohol and find it really cool to do.
What one thing connected you with the brothers?
What I felt connected with the rest of the brotherhood was what I can only describe as rag-tag unity, so many different characters yet all similar in some way and it felt good to be a part of it.
What’s one goal you have to improve the house?
One thing I want to improve the house is the front yard, just clean it up a bit and paint some of the rooms that are left blank just so the house feels more full.
A very special thanks to all of alumni who came to help the brothers induct their newest member. *dlb dlb* Among this venerable group included Jackson Horton (’15), Adam Hernandez (’16), Thomas Shearer (’18), Adrian Duncan-Valdez (’20), Luke Fia and Jordan Leis (’21). We hope to see more alumni next year *dlb dlb*!
For now, I have taken the time to peck out a poem about what happened this past rush semester. I may be nobody’s Secretary, but I still know a good recapitulation story. *dlb dlb* So take a gander and pop a squawk and come all who know from where the Rooster crows.
(Alright, I may have gone a little long with the rhymes. *dlbwck!*)
Come one, come all ye Roosters faithful! Come all ye who know the bond fraternal! Come all ye Captain Coopers Troopers! Come all ye who hymn the Delta Psi Delta! And let *Dlbwck!* tell a tale of brotherhood, Spin a yarn like only a Delta could: 'Twas a long semester of studies, Filled with books, board games and buddies. When a long winter turned to spring, "That's Amore" did the causeway chorus sing Then did dear ol' Delta Psi's hymn Herald a Springtide rush once again! When snowy April turned to rainy May, There came a gravest whisper: "seven days..." Then did dear ol' Delta Psi seal, Alumni returned and history was revealed. And through initiation they came together, A group of men, more than just members, Extended an invitation to the fraternity For a most welcome brother Ninkasi! -Dlbwck
