The New York Eta Colony of Phi Delta Theta was recolonized at Rochester Institute of Technology on Sunday April 29, 2018. During the second half of the semester, Leadership Consultants, Landon Killion, Nebraska-Kearney ’17 and Justin Holmes, Campbell ’17 hit the ground running to create what is now a 29-man colony.
Rochester Institute of Technology is a strong academic institution with specializations in engineering, mechanics, and technology. The colony members have accepted the call to defy the status quo and make a positive impact on their campus and communities. The colony has developed a service mindset that strongly encourages doing something positive and different.
During the colonization ceremony, Leadership Consultant Landon Killion shared the importance of brotherhood and family with the group. Landon encouraged the colony to rely on each other because Phi Delta Theta is now a part of their family. Colony President Ian Smith reminded the excited colony of the New York State motto – Excelsior. Ever upward is the direction the colony must move. Although their semester is coming to an end, New York Eta has already begun planning summer brotherhood events and looks forward to next fall as their first semester as a colony.
