Delta Omega Chapter has the spirit at Fort Hays State University!

The Delta Omega Chapter at Fort Hays State University showed its spirit!

Participating in its first competition of the year, Delta Omega joined all fraternities and sororities on campus competing in two basketball games. The first game’s theme was America, and the second game’s theme was the 1980s.

"Delta Omega won the trophy last year, so we were set on winning it again this year," said Chloe Brown, LAMP Editor. "We blew the competition out of the water both days. We had the most spirit and the most people. Delta Zeta takes pride in showing our school how much spirit we have. We were all happy to win the trophy that night and have it be the first of hopefully many victories for the rest of the year."

Delta Omega Chapter is part of Greek-themed housing project on Fort Hays State University campus

On April 2, 2016, members of the local and national Greek communities celebrated the the groundbreaking of a new residential life building for Greek organizations on the Fort Hays State University campus.

The Greek residential building will house FHSU's Sigma Sigma Sigma, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and the Delta Omega Chapter of Delta Zeta. The themed housing is part of a $35.7 million Wiest Hall replacement project that includes a 450-bed residence hall near the site of the current Wiest Hall. Projected completion date for both new buildings is June 2017, with occupancy planned for the fall 2017 semester.

Funding for the themed housing comes from several university categories, including residential life, with the bulk coming from a bond sale. Greek alumni helped with additional fees to upgrade interior finishes.

Although members of the Delta Omega Chapter are sad to leave behind their beloved house, they are excited for the new journey ahead and the opportunity to strengthen the bonds among their Greek community.

"Today marks the beginning of a new era at Fort Hays State University. It's an era where we bring the Greeks back home, back home where they belong," said FHSU's President Mirta M. Martin. "This is momentous because you symbolize everything that Fort Hays symbolizes -- the importance of scholarship, the importance of leadership, the importance of sisterhood and brotherhood."
