Happy New Year From Delta Psi Delta

*dlbwck!* Well, hell-in-a-handbasket, it seems I’ve forgotten what day it is!

That’s right, it’s me, Dlbwck, back again with another update for all those dear ol’ Deltas who’ve been wondering what the brothers have been up to as of late. We had quite the Fall semester, introducing new members, saving the basement and otherwise planning (or not planning) new changes for a new year!

New Year, New Members

L-R: Ryan, Nick, Avery

This past November, the active members introduced three new brothers to the bowels of the fraternity.

Ryan, Nick and Avery are excited to start their next chapter at Linfield University with Delta Psi Delta. During Initiation Week, they had the chance to meet alumni like Lorin Jones (’98), Jackson Horton (’15) and Adam Hernandez (’16), as well as the infamous Brother Murph!

Unfortunately, because I am no early bird, proper introductions will come at a later date and blog post. For now, let’s give a hearty, fraternal welcome to our newest members. Here’s a personal *dlbwck!* for the future.

L-R: Jackson Horton (’15), Adam Hernandez (’16), Ben Niesen (’17), TJ Lawrence (’23), Dez Witty (’24), Chance Jones (’25) (credit: Lorin Jones)

Flooded Basements Can’t Hold Down Our Spirits!

Well, it is that time of year again as well when the sump pump in the basement decides that working is for next year and flooding is for now.

Luckily, new member Nick was on the scene, ready to alert members and the 369 SE College Avenu Board.

Although some clear damage was done to some older composites and nearly all of the furniture downstairs, we are waiting for a full report from the restoration company. Anyone looking for an update on the situation will want to contact the peerless Wally Karstad.

Let’s End It On a Positive Resolution

In the spirit of the New Year, Ol’ Dlbwck made a round of phone calls to the brothers to find out just what kind of resolutions they made for 2023. What resulted is a hodge-podge of plans and statements that might tickle your heart feathers. Enjoy, and Happy New Year! *dlbwck!*

Tanner: “Walk more places.”

Jordan: “I dunno, I’ve never frickin’ done this before.”

TJ: “Find Brother Murph a date.”

Dez: “Read more leisurely. Because school can sometimes suck the joy out of it.”

Ryan: “Run more places; I have to outdo Tanner, somehow.”

Avery: “Answering more phone calls (this rooster doesn’t feel slighted at all).”

Nick: “Read more, learn the guitar, invest in stocks and live a prosperous life.”

Hello, hello! My name is Dlbwck and I represent Delta Psi Delta.
