The Delta Prose St. Anthony Hall at the University of Pennsylvania Letter from the DAA President G reetings from Philadelphia. The city continues to embrace its renaissance of arts, cuisine, architecture, and green space. If you have not been back to campus in a while, I urge you to come see the remarkable changes in Center City and West Philadelphia. 2015-16 has been a busy year with everything from a visit from Pope Francis to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Though the city continues to change, I assure you that the Hall remains steady and that our brothers continue to uphold our values and traditions. We have a great group of 44 men who make up the Hall and are known for their outstanding work in the classroom and in athletics. They host the best parties on campus and have strong relationships with the University. The alumni body has a strong relationship with our current undergraduates and we continue to host monthly DAA meetings in Philadelphia and New York. Last February, more than 80 Delta alumni gathered at the Hall for our annual Winter Dinner event. Brothers from 7 decades enjoyed sharing stories of their time at the Hall together. May was marked with a party over Penn Reunion/Graduation weekend at 3637, which was enjoyed by alumni, graduating seniors, and their families. This fall we hope you will join us for other alumni gatherings in New York and Philadelphia and our annual Homecoming event. Please also save the date for the Delta GC on January 6-7, 2017, with the banquet at the Union League Club. More details will be sent soon, but this will be an event you will not want to miss. In June 2016, the alumni leadership of the Hall announced The Delta Campaign to undergo a major infrastructure renovation of 3637. Prior to the public announcement, we secured more than $1 million from 50 brothers toward our $2.5 million goal. The Delta Alumni Association retained the architectural services of Mark Thompson D'62 to conduct a master plan for our national landmark building. Brothers Michael J. Meehan II D'61, Stephen G. Smith D'68, and Vincent J. Browning D'85 are serving as the campaign chairmen, and are supported by a campaign board with brothers from other eras.
