Fall 2017 Brothers

 This fall, we welcomed 15 new brothers into Alpha Delta.  We would like to welcome Tyler Hereim, Sean Baird, Devin MacClayland, Dillon Mccurry, James Kramer, Cache Younkin, Wyatt Willson, Isiah Renner, Keon Goodmundson, Nate Downey, Colten Galambas, Quinn Holland, Evan Van Dyke, Brett Delp, and Cole Stumpf.

 2017 Testicle Festival

 Our annual philanthropy event was a great success this fall.  The brothers were able to raise over $17,000, and plan on donating over $10,000 to Montana 4-H, FFA, and Farm Rescue.  Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band was the headliner, and put on an awesome show!

Homecoming 2017
 The men of Alpha Delta had a great homecoming weekend with the ladies of Alpha Gamma Delta.  The theme was "no place like home."

Fall 2017 Brotherhood Scholarship Recipient

Brant Marsh, a senior majoring in Animal Science, was chosen for this fall. Brant was chosen as the recipient for many reasons. He is an outstanding leader, being a former noble ruler and Montana state FFA president. Brant goes above and beyond to serve Alpha Delta without the need to be recognized. He goes out of his way to help the brothers of our chapter with whatever they may need help with. Much of the success Alpha Delta has had over the last four years has been achieved with a large amount of help from this brother. Brant is currently the College of Agriculture Senator for ASMSU. Brant will be graduating in the spring.
 Alpha Delta is proud to announce that we have been recognized as a Gold Star Chapter, as well as being #1 in communications out of all of the AGR chapters in the country!


Our advisor, Scott Chauvet, had brothers over for a great Easter Dinner!

Spring 2017 Activation Brothers

This spring, Alpha Delta welcomed six new brothers into our chapter.  We would like to welcome Dalton Theilen, Connor McCullough, Zach Berlogar, Connor Tracy, Jake Michels, and Austin Braun.

Spring 2017 Noble Ruler Report

Hopefully this report finds our brothers, alumni, friends, and family well. Here in Bozeman, Alpha Delta is experiencing our second semester in our beautiful, newly renovated home, and we are taking advantage of every opportunity to show it off. On top of last semester’s lovely, and well attended alumni reception, we have broken in the new home with a couple visits from the Dean of the College of Agriculture, Dr. Charles Boyer. Our proudest moment in displaying our new house, however, would definitely be our dinner with the President of MSU, Dr. Waded Cruzado. Beautifully decorated and deliciously catered, the dinner was a major success.

Along with keeping that new house in top shape, our 62 actives and 32 live-ins have been working hard in all aspects of their college careers. Campus involvement has been a massive part of our brother’s experience with our men taking trips with clubs to places like Denver and Pittsburgh to promote Agriculture around the nation.  
Our new officer team has been doing a great job in taking on and accomplishing great tasks. From attending officer training events in Reno, to taking online training seriously, they are a quality group of doers.

Our greatest challenge this semester has been deciding who to nominate for Greek Life awards. With so many great men in this chapter, we had long list of members to decipher from. In the end, we declared Ben Roeder and John Walker to be our nominees for new member and member of the year. We are also hopeful that our nominee for undergraduate director, Brant Marsh, gets elected to take part in one of 4 available positions in Alpha Gamma Rho to sit in on board meetings and vote on issues at a national level.
 
Alpha Delta has accomplished quite a bit over the past year. We plan to continue with our extremely successful philanthropy, professionalism, sociality, and involvement. We are proud of our accomplishments while remaining focused on our goals. We will continually strive to focus on and improve ourselves, our brothers, our studies and most of all our fraternity. 

Fraternally, 

Dan Bock ‘15

Noble Ruler

 Meet our new Sweetheart, Rebecca Rebrovich!  

Rebecca is from Hibbing, Minnesota majoring in Business Management and a member of the Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority. Rebecca's favorite part about Alpha Delta Chapter is how welcoming we all are, and also how we will help anyone in need. She is most looking forward to getting to know every brother!

 Fraternity and Campus Club Involvement

During the semester, we have had brothers travel down to Reno, Nevada for the regional Alpha Gamma Rho leadership conference.  Also, we had brothers travel down to Arlington Texas for the 1st Alpha Gamma Rho Reunion at the American Rodeo at Dallas Cowboys Stadium.  Additionally, we have had brothers attend the Denver Stockshow for Collegiate Stockgrowers, the National Farm Bureau conference in Pittsburgh for Collegiate Young Farmers and Ranchers, and Society of Range Management in Saint George Utah for Range Club.


 President's Dinner

The Brothers of Alpha Delta had a tremendous night hosting Montana State University President Waded Cruzado to dinner at our house.  Additionally, we had Dean of Students Matt Caires, many alumni, and many brothers in attendance.  We would like to thank President Cruzado for taking time out of her busy schedule to come, as well as the wonderful ladies from AOPI, Bailey McCraken's mother, and Mikala DeRuwe for preparing and serving everyone a fantastic dinner.

Brotherhood Scholarship Winner

Dan Bock, our newly elected Noble Ruler, was selected as the recipient of the brotherhood scholarship winner for the spring semester.  The $250 scholarship is funded by one of our many generous alumni.  Dan was selected because "Dan goes above and beyond the call of duty to better our chapter."  "It's one thing to do what is asked of you, its another to consistently go above and beyond."  The brothers of the chapter nominate members who they feel are the most deserving of the scholarship.  Congrats Dan!
