Brothers, Friends, and parents of members at Central Michigan University came together at Mt. Pleasant on November 9 to celebrate the success of our men on campus as the former CMU Colony became the Tau Theta Chapter, joining the Chi Phi Fraternity as our fifty-second active, Chartered Chapter.
Founded in the fall of 2017, Central Michigan marked Chi Phi’s first expansion in the state since 1921. The Founding Fathers of Tau Theta wasted no time in finding their spot on campus and easily immersed themselves in the Greek Community. With this hard work and dedication, Tau Theta is now an established Chapter which has steadily grown in both numbers and performance these past two years.
With more than 100 people present for their Chartering Ceremony, including Alumni Brothers from Iota, Mu, Alpha-Tau, Alpha-Chi, Iota Delta, Rho Delta, and Psi Delta, it was certainly an occasion to celebrate.
Chapter Alpha Matt Schultz, Tau Theta 2020, says that “being a part of the founding class of Chi Phi at CMU was one of the best opportunities I’ve been given in my short college career. Now being recognized as the Tau Theta Chapter is a great honor displaying that we live up to the Chi Phi values. I’ve surrounded myself with lifelong Brothers that have shaped this opportunity into great experiences and great success. Though successful, Tau Theta is just at the beginning of many years of success. I’m excited to visit CMU in the future to discover what the Brothers have accomplished through the union of congenial minds.”
Indeed, the entire Chi Phi Fraternity is excited to see what the Tau Theta Chapter will accomplish. Their dedication to our shared Values of Truth, Honor, and Personal Integrity has already proven their commitment to this Fraternity, and their resolve to promote these Values in their community.
