Omega Delta Phi Fraternity, Inc. unveiled their colony at Texas Christian University with the presentation of their founding line last Friday January 20th. The expansion efforts of the fraternity at TCU came full circle with the activation of the founding line. The TCU founding line consists of Anthony Hernandez, Bryan Williams, Quan Liu, Richard Pescrillo, Carlos Quintana, Gilberto Vasquez, and Jose Trejo.
Hernandez stated that he felt ODPhi resonated with them as interests when looking for what organization to establish at TCU because it presented an opportunity to be a part of something truly diverse. Increasing diversity was a big factor for the founders as they took on the challenge of establishing the second culturally based fraternity at Texas Christian University. The founders look forward to living up the fraternity’s mantra of “one culture, any race” by embracing men of all backgrounds and lifestyles.
The TCU Colony already has service efforts lined up in the Fort Worth community in their first full fledged semester as actives. They plan to partner up with the local Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) chapter, HOPE Farm, and plan to carry out varied service projects with other organizations such as Catholic Charities of Fort Worth and the YMCA. The colony has pledged to carry out at minimum 35 service hours per member for Spring 2012.
