Chapter History

Coordinator of Expansion and Growth Connor Gau, Chico State '11, began expansion efforts at San Jose State University in the fall semester of 2013. Fellow staff member Seth Melchor, Bowling Green '10, provided follow-up support later on during the expansion efforts. Thirty-five men went through the Pledge Ceremony in September of 2013 and were initiated in December of 2014. The group was officially colonized by Cory Ryan, Wake Forest '10, in November of 2014. Matt Weido, San Jose State '13, was hired to join Fraternity Staff beginning in July of 2015. 

The group chartered on November 21, 2015. Hon. Robert Kutz, California '67, gave the Keynote Address and presented the charter. Coordinator of Chapter Development Adam Stahon, Westminster '12, represented Fraternity Staff. Benjamin Galeana, San Jose State '13, was the Founding President.
