At the 164th Theta Delta Chi National Convention recently held in Boston, the Hobart Charge of Theta Delta Chi was awarded the Academic Excellence Award, which recognizes them for having the highest cumulative average among the 31 active national charges. Apart from achieving academic success nationally, the Hobart Charge also had the highest GPA among the six Hobart fraternities.
“Coming into this spring semester, we had four main goals: secure a house for the next academic year, maintain the highest GPA among all of the fraternities, host our first spring formal, and create our first composite,” said President of Theta Delta Chi Charlie Hale ’12.
“Theta Delta Chi maintained a 3.2 GPA for the 2010-2011 academic year. We are extremely proud of this achievement and hold ourselves to only the highest academic levels each and every year,” said Hale.
During the 2010-2011 academic year, Theta Delta Chi also increased their level of philanthropic involvement, raising more than $70,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project, the Red Cross to aid relief in Japan, and Grassroots Soccer, an organization that educates children in Africa about the dangers of AIDS, while playing soccer.
The Hobart Charge of Theta Delta Chi (ΘΔX) was founded in 1857, only 10 years after the fraternity was nationally founded, making them one of the oldest fraternities at Hobart College. The Charge is in the process of revitalizing its roots at Hobart, and has a new website, www.xicharge.com, and a Twitter @TDX_Xi.
