The Grand Chapter is pleased to announce that 33 associate members from the University of Florida have been initiated and formally rechartered as the Delta Tetarton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa.
On August 30th, Grand President Bill Neugebauer (Indiana/PA ‘67), Grand Chapter staff, and a ritual team from Kappa Hexaton Chapter (Stetson University), initiated colony members and conducted the formal chartering ceremony for Delta Tetarton Colony. The chartering banquet was held at Paramount Plaza Hotel and Conference Center in Gainesville, Florida and saw 80+ family, friends, and guests in attendance.
Delta Tetarton was originally chartered in 1951 and was recolonized by Grand Chapter staff in the summer of 2013. Over the past year, the group has worked tirelessly and its petition to charter was approved in May. The men honored three undergraduate members as the recipients of Cardinal Principle Awards. Michael Torounian received the Brotherhood Award, Jeff Rossin received the Scholarship Award, and Marcelo Guerra received the Character Award.

Starting a Colony
If there is no existing chapter or colony at your school, you have the exciting opportunity to become a Founding Father for Phi Sigma Kappa! This is truly and honor, and a title only a few will ever hold. Read below, and see what is involved with starting a colony.
Typically, expansions fall into three categories: interest group, local fraternity affiliation and a national expansion. Their definitions are as follows:
Interest Group: An interest group is comprised of a number of men who are interested in bringing Phi Sigma Kappa to campus. An interest group can be as small as 10-15 men, or as large as 40-50.
Local Fraternity Affiliation: This type of expansion comes about when a local campus fraternity contacts Phi Sigma Kappa seeking to merge with our organization.
National Expansion: This type of expansion involves staff members building a colony from the ground up, from recruiting founding fathers and supporting alumni to appointing and training new colony officers. This type comprises the majority of Phi Sigma Kappa's expansions and can be the result of interest from local alumni and/or the institution.
When choosing where to expand, Phi Sigma Kappa considers a number of factors, including, but certainly not limited to:
