Kappa Sigma welcomed 55 initiates into the Tau-Theta Chapter at West Chester University on Saturday, Jan. 31 2015. The chapter became the 394th to receive its charter in the Fraternity’s history. Tau-Theta was colonized in November 2013. The Brothers of Tau-Theta were initiated by ritual teams from five nearby chapters. The ritual teams were led by Deputy Ritualist Elliott B. Hopper (Kappa-Iota, Middle Tennessee State University, ’91). The five ritual teams came from the following chapters:
- Alpha-Delta – Pennsylvania State University
- Kappa-Eta – Widener University
- Mu-Sigma – Towson University
- Omicron-Phi – Washington College
- Omicron-Upsilon – Temple University
Worthy Grand Scribe Jeffrey S. McKenzie (Xi-Lambda, University of Delaware, ’97) attended the ceremonies and provided the keynote address at the installation banquet. The chapter is led by Grand Master Alex W. Rafuse and assisted by Alumnus Advisor S. Christian Nascimento (Kappa-Eta, Widener University, ’93). Tau-Eta is located in the Philadelphia District where Brother Matthew T. Cox (Kappa-Eta, Widener University, ’92) serves as District Grand Master.
