On February 26, Phi Delta Theta colonized the 40-member Tennessee Theta Colony at the University of Memphis after weeks of recruitment and development from Leadership Consultants Alex Atkinson and Nick Liberator. University officials, members of the colony advisory board, sorority women, friends, and family welcomed the colony members to the Greek community.
Province President Todd Nisbet presided over the colonization ceremony. President of the Tennessee Theta Colony, Matthew Bailey, said that he “wants to be a part of the process of creating an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion at the University of Memphis.”
Jennifer Williams, Senior Coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, attended the event and declared her excitement for the group stating, “In the short time that this group has been on campus, I have witnessed the formation of a group of men that I believe is eager to positively impact the campus’ fraternity and sorority and overall University community.”
The Tennessee Theta Colony has a bright future and is excited to join the Greek community at the University of Memphis. The colony members would like to thank Province President Todd Nisbet for presiding over the ceremony and would like to express great appreciation to the committed alumni and faculty involved for their excitement and support.
