On Wednesdays We Rock Letters: Gamma Chapter at University of Arizona

Note from the Editor of 7Visions Magazine: Today, we continue our On Wednesdays We Rock Letters series as a tribute to our National Founders, their legacies and the tradition of wearing red letters on Wednesdays as a homage to the Seven Visionary Men who founded our brotherhood at Texas Tech University on Wednesday November 25th, 1987. Throughout the year, we will feature a colony or chapter that is excelling and living their oath through their work on their respective campus and surrounding community. Each entity featured herein is living their values and ensuring that Omega Delta Phi’s legacy is preserved and continued.
