Transcript of W. David Romoser Lodge Dedicated At Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony · At Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony Cutting...
Zeta Delta Brothers from far and wide, old and young, gathered together at the new Lodge on August 24 for a Ribbon-Cutting Cer-emony and Dedication Cele-bration. They were joined by two honored guests, Samuel C. Bessey, HΔ ’97, #23, and W.S. 'Bill' Hatten-dorf, Jr., AΔ '69, Σ '82, H '83, #7 - Chi Psi Fraternity’s Ex-ecutive Director and Na-tional President, respective-ly.
It was a celebration for the ages. For the first time, Brothers and guests were able to step foot in the new Lodge that we had all been hearing about, and it did not disappoint.
The highlight of the evening was when Alumni Corporation president Matthew Hess announced to those gath-ered that the new Lodge was being dedi-
cated to one of Zeta Delta’s most influ-ential alumnus, and without question her most loyal servant, W. David Ro-moser, ZΔ ‘65.
Brother Hess noted in his remarks that it was Brother Romoser’s vision
back in 1994, along with others who served on the Board, that a new Lodge could one day be purchased using the proceeds of the sale of the Lodge at 912 South Second Street if those proceeds were donated to the Educational Foun-
dation, thereby avoiding a signifi-cant capital gains tax hit. Although it had taken much longer than an-yone could have anticipated, Brother Romoser’s vision has final-ly become a reality. What’s more, it was Brother Ro-moser’s energy, perseverance and generosity that made Phase 1 of the Zeta Delta Lodge Campaign such a remarkable success, ena-bling the Alumni Corporation to obtain a mortgage and complete the purchase of the new Lodge. It was Brother Romoser’s hard work, wisdom and encouragement that kept a relatively young Alumni
Board on track to accomplish something that had only been dreamed of for more than two decades. To honor his lifetime of service and generosity, the new Lodge will heretofore be known as the W. David Romoser Lodge.
Those gathered were espe-cially honored to hear Brother Hattendorf give some remarks, recounting memories of the witnessing firsthand how the bonds that his father, Will Hatten-dorf, ZΔ ‘38, had formed with his brothers seemed to only grow stronger as time went by. As Brother Romoser aptly put it, geography got in the way of Brother Hattendorf joining the ranks of Alpha Zeta Delta as a college stu-dent. However, we are about to remedy that situa-tion. Zeta Delta is honored
to announce that Brother Hattendorf is in line to become the Chi Psi to be initi-ated in the new Lodge - and the first sitting #7 ever to be initiated into anoth-er Alpha - when Zeta Delta conducts its Winter Initiation on December 6-7, 2019.
This is sure to be a special occasion, and we want to encourage all of our alumni to make every effort to attend the initia-tion ceremonies at the new Lodge at 710 West Ohio St.

N o one in their wildest dreams could have ever predicted the amount of changes our Alpha has
gone through in the past two years. In the Spring of 2017, Zeta Delta was forced to leave its home of 15 years at 110 East Armory Avenue due to the sale of the property to the Kappa Delta Sorority. In the Fall of 2017, the undergraduates occupied a new Lodge at 606 West Ohio Street in Urbana, which was thought to be the Alpha's home for the foreseeable future. The Spring of 2018 brought about discussions and the ear-ly stages of planning for a Capital Cam-paign to purchase a property for Zeta Delta. During the fall of 2018, the Alumni Corporation Board learned that the Delta Zeta Sorority house had be-come available; that information would forever change the tide for Zeta Delta. The Campaign Committee's perfectly laid out plans went out the window, and in a matter of months the generosi-ty of so many made the purchase of our Lodge at 710 West Ohio Street a reality. Owning a Lodge after approximately 25 years of uncertainty is a dream come true. Now that the pomp and circum-stance is over, it's time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
I am truly humbled and honored to have been elected as the next President of the Alumni Corporation board of Alpha Zeta Delta of Chi Psi. Don't think for one second that the gravity of our current situation is lost on me. The un-dergraduate membership has been on the rise for two years, their grades are above the all men's and all fraternity average, and they have once again cre-ated a formidable presence on campus with their active social calendar and par-ticipation in philanthropy. On the other side of the coin, alumni are as active and engaged as I have ever seen them, and expectations are the highest they have been due to our recent success. I believe it is the Alumni Board's job to not only sustain the success that has been achieved, but take the Alpha to the next level.
Zeta Delta has had a total of seven (7) Distinguished Service Award recipients since it was first presented to Albert Sprague Bard, X 1888 in 1939. The three most recent Zeta Delta recipients: W. David Romoser, ZD '65, Todd Fouts, ZD '89, and Randy Mason, ZD '96 were also the last three Alumni Corporation Board
Presidents, in that order, before Mat-thew Hess, ZD '00. As you well know, Brother Hess was an inspiration to all and worked tirelessly to secure a new Lodge for Zeta Delta. Following the acts of these Chi Psi titans is not an easy task, but if we all work together and do our part, we can continue to build the model Alpha of Chi Psi.
I take pride in setting lofty goals and enjoy pushing myself, and others
around me, to the max. Carrying that same mindset into our work with the Alpha, the ultimate goal should be for Zeta Delta to be a model Alpha of Chi Psi and viewed as a top fraternity at the University of Illinois. What is the best way for us to measure that type of suc-cess? The Thayer Trophy. The path to winning the Thayer Trophy requires a roadmap that is dependent on the ac-tions of both the undergraduates and the alumni. How can we as an alumni body ever expect the undergraduates to intel-ligently manage the finances of the Lodge, be consistently successful with rush, and become exceptional leaders without any guidance? If you take a step back and look at the model that we as
alumni have used to run the Alpha, you will notice that it doesn't work, and it hasn't for a long time. The time to move forward and create something new has come, change is not easy, but it is neces-sary.
Our priority as alumni is simple: sup-port the Alpha where needed. Right now, that means contributing to the on-going Zeta Delta Lodge Campaign to pay down the mortgage before the bal-loon payment in five years and replen-ish the Educational Trust to continue our attractive scholarship program. It means making it a habit to pay your $55 annual dues to provide the board with operating income so it can function properly. It means providing guidance to the undergraduates to give them the tools they need to succeed. Sounds like a lot of work, right? You don't become the best without a little effort.
Our primary function as a board, out-side of maintaining the Lodge, should be providing guidance to the under-graduates, and we need your assis-tance. There are a lot of smart business-men reading this newsletter and you all know that the Alpha is essentially a small business. Without operating in-come and trained employees there is no way that the company will stay afloat. Volunteering to conduct a workshop for undergraduates majoring or inter-ested in your field of employment, or volunteering for our mentoring pro-gram will make an immediate and posi-tive impact. Have experience as a #1, #4, etc.? Reach out to the undergrads currently in that position, introduce yourself, and inquire about any issues they may be battling with and offer some unsolicited advice. These are a few examples of the many little acts that we as Alumni can do to become
engaged, pass on lessons learned and help breed a culture of success.
I hope I have a few of you thinking about ways you can assist. Changing the way things are done at the alumni or undergraduate level won't be easy, but I am confident that we will once again pull together as a group and make the impossible, possible. As Chairman of the Capital Campaign, it was an easy vote on my end when we decided not to hire a professional company to help solicit funds for the campaign. Zeta Delta is a resilient group of dedicated and proud Chi Psi's, we know what needs to be done and nothing is going to stop us. It's time we put our beloved Alpha back where it belongs, on top.

Remarks from the #1 - Evan Fouts, ZΔ ’22 By Evan Fouts, ZΔ ‘22, #1
T his semester has been one of the greatest growths in the history of Chi Psi at the University of Illinois, largely due to our previous #1 Dan-
iel Abel and our hard-working brothers here at the Lodge. I am honored and thrilled to have been trusted to continue to lead this fraternity on the pursuit of excellence. As many of you know, we were fortunate enough to have recently acquired our own
building to call home. It took a lot of hands over the summer and the beginning of the year to transfer all of our belongings over and set up the place, but now it is truly looking like a Lodge. The brothers and I cannot thank the alum-ni enough for their con-stant and gracious sup-port throughout this process.
With this beautiful Lodge and tenacious work of our Recruit-ment Chairs, Sam Hoff-man and Kyle Ander-son, recruitment this semester went wonder-fully. From barbecues on the back porch to cards and pool in the living room, the events we had were a lot of fun and brought some out-standing people by. The Fall 2019 Pledge Class is a group of eight gentle-men that have already shown their good ethics and dedication to the brotherhood. We also already have around six men who are likely to pledge in spring. With this head start, we hope to have a large Spring 2020 Pledge Class and begin on a path of growth at Chi Psi.
As an Alpha, academics has been a heavy focus the last few semesters. Our Scholarship Chair Zach Junk has ensured brothers are getting the grades they need to succeed through regular meetings and study hours twice a week. I am happy to report that our GPA is currently above fraternity average. We
are not resting on this achievement, but instead are continually working to improve. Next semester, we plan on hosting a time management seminar to teach fellow brothers how to plan our their days and weeks to maximize their efficiency in school-work and other aspects of their lives.
Another area we have been building on is our philanthropy, managed this semester by Ryan Litt. Previously, we would typically go to external philanthropy events run by other or-ganizations. This year, we have made an effort to bring the philanthropy to the Lodge. We hosted a successful dinner that raised money for the Humane Society as well as started the Chi Psi Cleanup program. This is where we all come together in the morning to either pick up trash and rake leaves during the fall or shovel sidewalks and driveways during the winter. We plan on doing our best to organize more events at Chi Psi
as well as coordinate with other local fraternities and/or churches to keep the neighborhood clean. Our recent AMR was an enlightening experience that helped guide the thoughts of our new exec to where we want to be as a fraternity. The brothers elected alongside me are a very bright, organized, and driven group of lead-ers that brings me comfort and excitement for the following year. I am confi-dent that with our ideas and plan of action, we can cultivate an even stronger brotherhood that stands out to not only the Uni-versity, but other Alphas as well. My goal is for Al-pha Zeta Delta to win the Founder’s Trophy this Convention. With enough
devotion and zeal from our brothers, it is well within reach. Once again, I would like to thank the alumni and their fami-
lies for their unending support through our endeavors. You have made an immeasurable impact on our lives and to the future of Chi Psi. Our vision is attainable through a shift in our mindset, a desire for growth, and a realization that what we do now is not only for the benefit of our current brothers, but for all of the brothers to come.

Replenishing Educational Fund a Top Priority Tax-Deductible Donations Will Fund Scholarships, Technology for Years to Come By: Matthew R. Hess, ZΔ ‘00
P hase 2 of the Zeta Delta Lodge Campaign is well un-derway, which as you know is a dual purpose campaign:
(1) we are soliciting donations to the Alumni Corporation in order to pay down our mortgage before we need to refinance the building in August, 2024; and (2) we are raising money to replen-ish Zeta Delta’s fund that is held by the Chi Psi Educational Trust having used a little more than $500,000 of our educa-tional fund to put toward the down pay-ment for the Lodge.
While the importance of developing donations to pay down the mortgage is obvious – lower monthly payments to the bank mean the Alumni Corporation can lower the rent it charges the Alpha, which will increase live-in numbers and help the Alpha grow – the importance of the educational fund may seem less ob-vious to some.
In the years that followed the sale of the Lodge at 912 South Second Street in 1994, the Alpha was able to survive be-cause of the assistance provided by the interest earned on the educational fund. While the Alpha rarely tapped into the principal, the annual interest earned on the fund had to be used to fulfill educa-tional purposes by law.
In order to prudently spend that money, the Temple Hoyne Buell Memo-rial Scholarship was established. This scholarship was offered to incoming freshmen, and it allowed the undergrad-uates and alumni the opportunity to meet freshmen during the Summer be-fore school began, and gave them an opportunity to invite (coerce?) freshmen to come visit the Lodge. For many years, the Scholarship was the most important recruitment tool the Alpha employed.
Scholarships were also established for influential Brothers, including the George H. Bargh Memorial Scholarship, the Bob Preble, Jr. Scholarship, and the Bob Preble, Sr., Memorial Scholarship. These scholarships essentially subsi-dized the cost of living in the Lodge for many, giving Chi Psi a leg up on other fraternities on campus and allowing it to grow despite not having a permanent Lodge.
The Alpha was also able to purchase educational equipment – including com-puters, printers and furniture for com-puter labs. These resources proved in-valuable in helping Brothers maintain
excellent grades for a long period, rank-ing as high as #2 in GPA among all fra-ternities in 1996 (which was the key that allowed this writer to convince his par-ents to allow him to join the Lodge).
Maintaining the Buell Scholarship in the coming years is critical to our suc-cess. Like any business, Chi Psi com-petes with other fraternities on campus for members, and we must always be looking for an edge that sets us apart from other houses. The Buell Scholar-ship is one such edge. It gives under-graduates an opportunity to get to know incoming freshmen before they ever step foot on campus. Administered properly,
the Buell Scholarship can be the differ-ence between the Alpha treading water and excelling at the highest levels.
The Buell Scholarship costs approxi-mately $5,500 per year to administer. This includes three $1,000 scholarships; a catered banquet at the Lodge (about $2,000); and printing and postage ex-
penses associated with sending letters and applications to high schools ($500). Therefore, in order to earn $5,500 of in-terest per year, assuming a 4% rate of return, we need to develop an endow-ment totaling $135,000 just to fund the Buell Scholarship program.
Regarding the other scholarships, the math is easy. The educational fund has historically earned approximately 4% per year. Therefore, in order to fund one $1,000 scholarship annually, a $25,000 endowment is required.
In addition to scholarships, the educa-tional fund may also be used to reim-burse the Alumni Corporation for ex-penses associated with operating that portion of the Lodge attributable to the educational area under the terms of our grant agreement with the Educational Trust. What that essentially means is that, if we were able to develop a large enough fund, up to 30% of the operating cost for the Lodge (including utilities, property taxes and insurance) can be paid for out of the educational fund – about $28,500. In order to earn that much interest in a year, at 4% we would need a beginning balance of $715,000.
All told, in order to fully take ad-vantage of the educational fund from now into the next century, we need to develop a fund of about $1M. We recog-nize that this is not likely achievable in the near future, but over time that is where we would like to be.
Short term, our goal is to develop an educational fund that will at least gener-ate enough income on an annual basis to fund a robust scholarship program. If we can generate $300,000 in gifts to the educational fund, we would be able to fund all of Zeta Delta’s scholarships on an annual basis in perpetuity. We will also be able to update our technology, furniture and other educational items on an annual basis as well. This goal, we believe, is well within reach.
One advantage of donating to the ed-ucational fund is that the Chi Psi Educa-tional Trust is a 501(c)(3) organization. Therefore, your donations to the Trust are tax-deducible.
If you are interested in taking ad-vantage of this tax-deductibility, please use the pledge form included in this newsletter to send in your donation. Checks should be made out to “The Chi Psi Educational Trust” and you should write “Zeta Delta Fund” in the memo portion of your check.
Thank you again for your support!

D o you remember your initiation into the membership of Chi Psi Fra-ternity? I do as if it were yesterday. It is difficult to forget the exhilara-
tion of finally becoming a full-fledged mem-ber of the Alpha Zeta Delta Lodge of Chi Psi at the University of Illinois and receiving that
Chi of gold. For me, what made it even more special was eventually being elected the President, the Number One, of the fraternity, an honor I will always remember.
It is during that initial phase of fraternal life that you begin to grasp the meaning of Chi Psi Brotherhood. You attend foot-ball and basketball games together and even go to campus night spots and restaurants with brothers and their girlfriends. Homecoming and other special event weekends provide an oppor-tunity to meet the families of other Chi Psi’s. You often get to know mothers, fathers, sis-ters, brothers and even hometown friends of your brothers.
As your time at the university comes to a close, you gain a greater understanding of Brotherhood. After all, you and the other brothers have just shared the highs and lows of college life together, and in most cases, have come out stronger because of support for each other. It is then you truly find out that these are not just your brothers, but they are likely to be “special” life-long friends that you believe will always your back.
When you leave college life, you try to get back to the Lodge for Homecoming and other events. You even visit your brothers at their homes or at restaurants and bars close to where most of you live. Eventually the obli-gations of career and family make it difficult to stay in contact with the brothers and to make regular visits to the Lodge. You want to continue your regular connections, but the demands of time do not allow much.
As you become comfortable in your career and the family gets older, you long to reconnect with those brothers who you haven’t seen for years. Because of the technological advance-ment of e-mail, you now have instant connections with anyone who you know. These connections sparked a new phase of Brotherhood as some Chi Psi pooled ideas and resources to stage a few reunions. The one that started it all for me took place in October 2003 when brothers from the late 60s and ear-ly 70s and many of their wives got together at a Chi Psi’s home in Lemont, IL, for a great time. It was amazing to see brothers who had not been in contact for as much as 30 years greet one another as if they saw each other yesterday. It was quite a rev-elation that the bonds of brotherhood and friendship that be-gan at the Lodge decades ago were still very much alive.
Several smaller reunions took place in subsequent years, but it was not until I experienced a life-altering situation that I entered a new phase of Brotherhood that provided me with a much deeper understanding of what it means to be a Chi Psi. A few years ago, I contracted a rare infection that threatened
my very survival. My wife not only made sure that I received life-saving medical care, she contacted a brother who then e-mailed the seriousness of my situation to fellow Chi Psi’s across the country. I received visits and countless e-mails and cards wishing me well and lifting my spirits. I was reminded once again that these are indeed my life-long friends, and they always do have my back.
I have always been a big supporter of Chi Psi at the Univer-sity of Illinois, but my near-death experience prompted me to increase my commitment to the Brotherhood. I have made two donations to the new Lodge purchase and was there for the dedication of the new Lodge. It has been 50 years since my graduation, but it still warms my heart to attend Chi Psi and see old friends. I also felt an instant bond to the youngest of Chi Psi. Helping other Chi Psi’s to make their own charitable
contributions has further enhanced my new phase of brother-hood.
Before my health scare, I lost a close brother to cancer. We talked on the phone, but I never did see him before he died. I have vowed not to let that happen again, and I have traveled to see brothers who are ill. Recently I visited a brother in the Chicago area who underwent a very serious heart operation. It was great to visit him and bring some happiness to what has been a difficult few months for him.
I have been fortunate enough to experience all these differ-ent phases of Brotherhood, as brother Hattendorf called it, a “special” friendship. Unfortunately, some of our fellow Chi Psi’s are no longer with us to share the experience. At last count, I have lost 10 brothers who were close to me. Thinking of them and of what I have experienced, I am grateful to say that I have been, I am, and I will forever be, proud to be a Chi Psi.
I call on the rest of the brotherhood, young and old, to re-commit ourselves to the values we learned as members of this great fraternity. Let us ensure that the strong bonds of that brotherhood are never broken.
DISCOVERING THE DEEPER MEANING

Earlier in the day, the inaugural Zeta Delta Scholar-ship Banquet was highlight-ed by a key-note address delivered by Jeremy Doser, ZΔ ’97, a cap-tain with Unit-ed Airlines who remi-nisced on his time in the Lodge and encouraged all in attendance to make the best of their college experience.
Temple Hoyne Buell Memorial Scholarships were also awarded to three freshmen (out of 31 applicants) who best ex-emplified the values of a Chi Psi gentleman: Marzuk Rashid, a computer science major from New Trier Township High School; Nathan Green from Plainfield North; and Graham Kessler, a biochemistry major from Mahomet-Seymour High School. Unfortunately, none of the Buell winners chose to pledge Chi Psi this semester, but the undergraduates remain in touch with all of them and are hopeful to recruit them into the fold in the Spring.
Scholarships for undergraduate Lodgers were also award-ed. The George Bargh Memorial Scholarship was given to Charlie Gordon, ZΔ ‘21, #2, in recognition of his service to Chi
Psi and his stellar 4.0 GPA. The Robert Pre-ble, Jr. Schol-arship was awarded to Michael Riv-kin, ZΔ ‘20, who also earned a 4.0 GPA, and the Robert Pre-ble, Sr. Me-morial Schol-arship was awarded to Kyle Anderson, who notched a sterling 3.93 GPA.
Thank you to every-one who was able to at-tend and who helped make this remarkable achievement possible. And for those who were not able to attend, we sincerely hope that you will visit the new Lodge sooner rather than later. It is a magnificent building, befitting of a truly magnificent fraternity.
