2016 Delta Tau Delta Western Plains Division Conference

Posted by John | General | Sunday 28 February 2016 6:58 pm

Gamma Theta

From Thursday February 18th- Sunday February 21st, 8 undergrads and 1 alumni advisor from Gamma Theta set up shop in Springfield Missouri at the University Plaza Hotel for the 2016 Western Plains division conference. During this conference the undergrads and advisor put together goals for the upcoming year as well as attended many breakout sessions to learn about how we can use the FAAR for planning the chapter’s programming this year. The chapter learned a lot and are bringing a lot of these inspiring ideas back to the chapter to help plan out the rest of the year.

Gamma Theta also got to bring home a lot of hardware from conference this year. Overall Gamma Theta won 5 national awards in the year 2015, which were awarded at this year’s division conference. The awards included an award for having the average chapter GPA above the all-male and all fraternity average on campus, Outstanding Academic Programming, Shelter Pride, and our own Kip Unruh was recognized for being the IFC president of Baker University. Then there was the big award. I am happy to announce that Gamma Theta won its second consecutive Court of Honor Award for being ranked in the top 20 of all Delta Tau Delta chapters in the nation. Out of 136 Delta Tau Delta chapter nationwide, Gamma Theta was ranked 19th.

While we are extremely proud to get this honor, our officers and all other members have made a commitment to improve and win a Hugh Shields award in 2016. We want to thank the unparalleled amount of alumni support that we receive from all of our alumni, wherever dispersed around the country and the world. Without the legacy that you continue to leave on this chapter, this would not  be possible.

Welcome to Gamma Theta Chapter of Delta Tau Delta!

 Hello everybody and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. My name is Nick Yarbrough, and I am currently the Chapter President of this fine chapter of Delta Tau Delta at Baker University.

 Here at Delta Tau Delta we demand that all of our members live by the 4 core values of Deltism: Truth, Courage, Faith, and Power. These are the 4 fundamental principles that guide every action that we take and any decision that we make. We highlight these 4 values as well as many other valuable lessons about how to succeed in college, searching for a job, your career, as well as in your personal life in our comprehensive New Member Education and Member Education program: The Road 2.0, the Journey to Excellence. This is led by a committee of undergraduates and is assisted by members of the University as well as Delt and Baker Alumn’s. Gamma Theta was one of the first chapters in Delta Tau Delta to opt in to this program, and the results have been immediately apparent. In 2014, our chapter was ranked 14th out of the 136 Delta Tau Delta Chapters nationwide thanks to the outstanding young men, parents, and alumni that continuously support our Fraternity.

 If you have ANY questions about our chapter whether you are a parent or an alumni, please feel free to contact me at any time (I will put my email at the end of this note). I apologize that I am just now posting this, but as you know college gets very busy and I just now found the time!

President of Gamma Theta Chapter of Delta Tau Delta


2015 Fall Initiation

Posted by John | General | Sunday 31 May 2015 5:14 pm

Fall 2015 Initiation:


 I am proud to say that on November 9th, we welcomed 17 young men as new active members of our great fraternity. We are very excited about the future of these new members, who are off to a great start at Delta Tau Delta. 3 of our freshman have even already begun to take on leadership roles by being elected officers for the 2016 year. As always I would like to thank all of the Alumni support that we have received to make this new member class possible. From recruitment to initiation, our undergrads have received an abundance of alumni support that no other fraternity on this campus even compares to. 

 We also plan to have another initiation in February of this year for 3 freshman who were not initiated in the fall initiation.


Hartley Cornerstone Fund Plan

Posted by John | General | Sunday 1 March 2015 6:55 pm


Dear Baker Delts,

The Cap 50 Capital Campaign in 2009-10 would not have been possible without the generous gift by Ross Hartley and his wife, Chris as well as over 200 Gamma Theta Delt Brothers. In recognizing the Hartleys, we have established a new maintenance budget for future capital investments, called the Hartley Cornerstone Fund.

One of the initial goals of the Cap 50 campaign was to establish a maintenance fund, but the unexpected expense required to renovate both lower and upper bathrooms at the time of our renovation interfered with that plan.  After careful review and evaluating what is in our near future, we ask you to consider the following plan that would establish a Fund that could lead our Chapter to a new bright future.
