Omega Chapter Rechartered at the University of Kentucky
Posted on Oct 2, 2018
On Friday, September 14, 2018, 60 colony members were initiated by Theta Omicron (Indiana State University), Zeta Tau (Eastern Kentucky University), Kappa Zeta (University of Louisville), and Iota Delta (Rose Hulman Institute of Technology). The following day, Omega Chapter was officially installed on campus by International President Mark Dziatczak (Wayne State, Delta Nu ’91) and Bluegrass Regional President Allen Eskridge (Transylvania, Kappa ’91).
The Chapter Installation in Lexington was followed by a banquet attended by chapter members and their dates, University staff, and alumni. Assistant Director of Fraternity & Sorority Life Jenna Lowe spoke to colony members about the opportunity presented to them as they enter a new phase in their organization’s development. After remarks by the IFC President Nima Mahmoodi, Regional President Eskridge, and External Vice President Jacob Govea, the keynote address was delivered by International President Dziatczak. The keynote address took the form of a challenge to the newly initiated men to be leaders each and every day that they represent Pi Kappa Alpha as students, fraternity men, and as future alumnus members. The evening concluded with Chapter President Jacob Bruce announcing a campaign in cooperation with alumni for Omega Chapter to secure long-term housing on campus and building a vision for the future of Omega Chapter.
