Ideal Chapter Size: 75
Coordinator of Expansion and Growth Dylan Dunne, Grand Valley '10, began expansion efforts at Auburn University in the fall semester of 2013. Fellow staff member Beau Loendorf, Colorado State '11, provided follow-up support later on during the expansion efforts. Thirty-seven men went through the Pledge Ceremony in September of 2013 and 31 men were initiated in December of 2013. The group was recognized as a colony by staff member Jeremy Reid, Elmhurst ’07, in November of 2013. In their first two years as a colony, the group initially struggled to recruit a competitive amount of new members in both the fall and spring semesters.
The group officially chartered on April 29, 2017. The ceremony was held at the Marriott Auburn Opelika Resort Hotel. The ceremony was led by Grand Counsilor Scott Grissom, Oklahoma '78, and was assisted by Coordinator of Chapter Development Logan Ishimine, Arizona '14. Special guest in attendance was original Founding Father Josh Watson, Auburn '13. The Founding President of the chapter was Andrew Kelly, Auburn '16.
