Dear Fellow DU Alumni Brothers,
In our continuing efforts to keep you apprised of our progress associated with the construction of our new house on Bucknell’s campus, I have attached the following photo which was taken earlier this week by Pat Flannery ’80.
Please note the “delta” formed by the sidewalk in front of the House. A special touch arranged by our New Building Committee in cooperation with the Facilities team at Bucknell.
As you are likely aware, the House was completed for occupancy this Fall and will be used as University housing for the first two years with DU taking occupancy in the Fall of 2019 following Fall Rush in 2018.
If you have not done so already, please take a moment to register on our website at www.PledgeDU.com. The website remains a work in process but ultimately will provide greater connectivity between all of our Alumni Brothers. The website will ultimately feature the history of the House, news and events, contact information for all alumni brothers, class bulletin boards, photo archives and fundraising information.
We are currently looking for a DU Alumni to take over the management of the website. If you or any other DU Alumni you know would be interested in managing our website, please contact Steve Harber ’85.
Thanks again for all of your support regarding our efforts to re-open the Chapter and re-establish DU’s presence on campus. We will be looking to each of you over the several months for your financial support to cover the anticipated “start up” costs associated with the House and to ensure the long term viability of DU on Bucknell’s campus.
Should you have any questions or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of the Alumni Board.
John J. Zaharchuk ‘81
