Happy Birthday, Alumni!


The Delta Zeta Alumni Association wants to extend to all of our Brothers who have birthdays in February the warmest and happiest birthday wishes for a wonderful day!

Those celebrating this month are:

Brandon Webb – February 4th

Matthew Whitney – February 12th

Aaron Poidevin – February 24th

Best wishes to each and every one of you, as well as all of our other Brothers who are celebrating birthdays in February (and who we may have missed in the above list)!

Catching Up with the Graduates…

With so many years of Delta Zeta at USF, the DZAA has hundreds of Alumni, and sometimes it’s easy to forget that with each passing year, we add more Brothers to our ranks as they graduate from USF and join the ranks of the Delta Zeta Alumni Association.

grad1Brother Kyle Schlenker is one of those recent graduates, having finished up at USF back in May 2014. He recently made a switch from a vet tech to an advisor for financial aid, working alongside his friend and fellow Chi Phi, Brent Ellingwood. “It’s a great paying job,” Brother Schlenker admits, “but it’s simply a resume builder for me at this moment. Right now, I’m just working, saving money to experience the most I can. This year, I have a bachelor’s party in Key West and a wedding in Massachusetts for Brent and Madison to look forward to. Also, I’ll be attending Bonnaroo in June and plan on traveling as much as I can!”

Brother Mike Rizer is an even more recent graduate, having graduated in August. He recently started the academy for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, and while he admittedly doesn’t see to many of his Brothers, he states, “I see Brent Ellingwood, Kyle Schlenker, Ryan Kirchoffer, and Matthew Whitney fairly frequently. Usually see Josh Cleveland whenever he’s in town as well.”

Brothers Schlenker and Rizer are just two of the recent Delta Zeta graduates to begin the next chapter of their lives, and it’s our hope that the DZAA can be a part of it!

Founders’ Day Isn’t Far Away!

PrintApril will be here before you know it, and that means it’s almost time to celebrate Founders’ Day! Tentatively scheduled for the weekend of April 18th, the weekend will be full of events – from the Bi-Annual Spring 2015 Meeting (don’t forget – we’ll be holding elections for new officers!) to the Saturday evening Social to the Sunday afternoon Scarlet vs. Blue softball game, it’s lining up to be a great weekend of food, fun, and festivities!

As plans for the weekend are finalized, announcements will be made – but start making plans now to attend – you don’t want to miss out on all the fun!
