2016 Expansion Efforts - Graduate & Associate Chapters

Posted by Phil Velez on October 25, 2016 at 4:40 PM

Delphic of Gamma Sigma Tau Fraternity is proud to announce the official formation of the NYC Professional Graduate Chapter. The new graduate chapter has initiated three new members and looks forward to future events in the NYC area. The organization would like to also welcome two undergraduate associate chapters: the SUNY Delhi Associate Chapter and the Lincoln University Associate Chapter. Our members in Delhi, NY and Oxford, PA are excited to re-establish active undergraduate chapters of our fraternity in the states of New York and Pennsylvania. The future of the Delphic Fraternity is looking bright. Del - phi!



Here are founding Delphic Brothers that make up the NYC Graduate Chapter and the Associate Chapters at SUNY Delphi and Lincoln University in Pennsylvania. (Photo from a joint crossing event in New Paltz, NY, February 2016.)

Dr. R. Paul Higgins, Sr. - Notable Delphic Alumni

Posted by Phil Velez on March 24, 2013 at 8:30 PM

We have added another Notable Delphic Alumni to the Delphic Fraternity Wikipedia Page, thanks for the incredible research conducted by our Brother Eric Guzman. Dr. R. Paul Higgins, Sr. was a prominent physican and higher education officer from Cortland, NY. He was a member of the Young Men's Debating Club, which later became the Epsilon chapter of the Delphic Fraternity. Higgins Hall on the campus of SUNY Cortland is named after Dr. Higgins. A special shout out to the Cortland County Historical Soceity for the wonderful information on Dr. R. Paul Higgins, Sr. and for the copy of his historic photo.

Young Men's Debating Club - Founded in 1847

Posted by Phil Velez on September 16, 2012 at 9:25 PM

The Delphic Fraternity was founded in 1871 in the state of New York. The fraternity can trace its organizational history back to the origins of the Epsilon chapter in Cortland, the Young Men's Debating Club formed in 1847. The organization knew the Cortland chapter was a debating club prior to becoming part of the Delphic Fraternity, however the actual founding date of the club was guestimated to be around 1842. An old article found online recently from the Cortland Evening Standard dated April 12, 1895 lists the names of prominent club alumni and confirms its founding year to be 1847. The new information has been added to the Delphic Wikipedia Page and this Delphic Fraternity History Home Page. Historially this is a great find and truly illustrates our organization's rich history. So, The Delphic Fraternity, Inc.: 140 years of brotherhood - 165 years of history.

Theta Chapter Spring 2006 Crossing

Posted by delphicfraternity on April 25, 2006 at 1:00 PM

Congratulations to Morgan Pomeranz! He became the newest brother to join the legendary Delphic Fraternity this past weekend at the Theta chapter in Binghamton, NY. Twelve brothers were present at his initiation and by the end of the night we had a total of 14 brothers representing in Binghamton. We all then went over to an Asian student event at the Ice Box where a great number of fraternities/sororities represented. I have not seen so many Greek letters in one place in a long while. We all had a great time. I am always filled with such profound pride when a new member crosses into the land of Delphic. May the legacy continue!
