Today, the Theta Delta Chapter at Virginia Tech celebrated its' weekly event "Tausday". Tausday is an opportunity for our fraternity to give back to all students on campus during a 15 minuet class change in a prime location on campus. We give back by handing out various gifts to help brighten the school spirit. Our Tausday Chair, Fabian Shelton had this to say on the event, "Tausday is something dear to my heart. When I joined the committee last semester I couldn’t believe how much fun it was. When the Tausday Chair position came open I knew it was a job I wanted to do. Seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see us makes every Tuesday that much better. Tausday is all about making people’s days and I’m excited to see how far we can take it..". This week we handed out candy, cookies, oatmeal cream pies, and fruit snacks.

"ATO Sweetheart Spotlight" is a new initiative to put on display how integral a part our sweethearts all are to our fraternity's success at the Theta Delta Chapter of Virginia Tech. A sweetheart is a girl who the entire fraternity sees and holds just as important as a brother for their contributions to the chapter as a whole. The first ATO Sweetheart Spotlight features our Sophia Cady. Sophia was introduced to the fraternity freshman year when she met Brother Bryer Palmer. She stated how she began hanging out with everyone, and thought the fraternity was so genuine and funny. After recognizing that she knew "I wanted to be friends with all of them". Sophia became a sweetheart the fall semester of her junior year. Her favorite memory is "The brotherhood dinner when I got sweetheart" she added. In terms of contributions, Sophia had this to say "I contribute by being there for everyone and helping out whenever they need something". Whether that is giving advice or cleaning up an event, Sophia is always there for the Theta Delta Chapter. Sophia mentioned the significance of being a sweetheart by saying "It means a lot to be a sweetheart. I never had very many guy friends in high school but now I have so many guys that I could go to whenever I need. I love being a part of such an amazing group of guys and I love how they always make me laugh and are like big brothers to me.".

Led by our President Jack Gutermuth, Recruitment Officer Andrew Kobylski, and the rest of the entire brotherhood, our Theta Delta Chapter hosted our last rush event of the year Friday February 16th, 2018. The potential new members conversed with the brothers of the fraternity for a good while until it was time for the presentation to begin. Our President and Recruitment Officer both gave wonderful speeches followed by senior Charles Lynam who left closing remarks which depicted the entire impact that is reciprocated upon joining the fraternity. We look forward to gaining another group of young men as the Eta Pledge Class will begin their journey into potential membership.

"ATO Sweetheart Spotlight" is a new initiative depicting the significance our sweethearts play in our fraternity's success at the Theta Delta Chapter of Virginia Tech. This second edition of ATO Sweetheart Spotlight features our Diana Doan. Diana, a current senior was introduced to the fraternity her freshman year through her best friends, and current brothers of the fraternity in the Alpha Pledge Class. These three gentlemen (Chris Koscho, Dan Safewright, and Ryan McVicker) brought her out to ATO events whether it was philanthropies, social events, or even just getting food with brothers. To Diana, "These were just the guys I could vibe with the best and be myself with". Diana became a sweetheart spring semester of her sophomore year during Valentine's Day. Her favorite ATO memory revolves around going to Myrtle Beach every year and spending time with "100+ of your best friends" as she put it. Diana contributes to the fraternity by bringing the sorority/fraternity relationship with Alpha Chi Omega. Diana noted "Since we both have the same philanthropy, it was very important for me to strengthen our relations with each other". Diana believes being a sweetheart means being seen as an equal, "Being able to say that I am a sweetheart of ATO means a lot. I know the brothers value me and respect my opinions just as much as they would any other brother". She went on to mention how "many other people don't get the same opportunity and honor that I have received. Growing up, I always wanted a brother close to my age. I feel like now I have over 200+ brothers and alumni I know that will always have my back, and that I will always have theirs". The impact goes beyond college for her as "These are the guys that will be there for my biggest life events like my wedding". After graduation, Diana will in Charlotte, NC working for McAdams, a civil engineering land development firm. We wish Diana the best and thank her for the time she dedicated to our fraternity over the years.
