Register for Homecoming 2013 today! In addition to the College’s schedule of events, DKE has a full schedule of events for our alumni, students, and friends. Come enjoy a great day on campus with fellow brothers on Oct 5th.
Friday October 4
5PM – 7PM Marquis Reception @ DKE House
Immediately following President Byerly’s inauguration convocation (4PM @ Quad) and prior to the Marquis Founders Dinner (College invitation only), our students welcome all Rho Dekes to the DKE House to enjoy our brotherhood and talk about what we have in the works for the 160th Anniversary of the Rho Chapter. Semi-formal attire suggested. The College also plans to host an open reception on the quad.
Saturday October 5
8AM – 11AM Breakfast (DKE Dining Room)
Join us for a delicious DKE breakfast served by the one and only Walter Luby including his famous egg McWalts and egg McLubies (Continental breakfast starts at 8AM, hot food served at 10AM).
11AM – 12:30PM Annual Meeting
We’ve made terrific strides to strengthen both the Rho Chapter and the Rho House Association. We also have ambitious plans for our chapter’s 160th Anniversary coming up in 2015. You’ll hear all about those plans at the annual meeting of the Rho House Association. Come get the latest alumni news, meet our students, hear about their strategic plan, and receive updates about our beloved Rho Chapter. Bring any ideas, questions or concerns to our chapter’s leadership.
12:30PM – 3:30PM Tailgate (Markle Parking Deck)
For the second consecutive year, our traditional tailgate will be on Markle to mingle with the Trustees and other alumni. We are already registered as a group, but space will be proportional to the number of Dekes registered with the Office of Alumni Relations. So register today and help us DOMINATE THE DECK (as only gentlemen can of course)! You do not have to select a specific tailgate package, but be sure to click the radio button for “Delta Kappa Epsilon with Michael De Lisi ’03” under the heading for “Joining your Affinity Group?” If you want food & drinks from the alumni association’s tailgate, you’ll need to check the boxes for their package as well.
Like last year, the undergrads will again be manning their grill on the parking deck. Bring anything else you’d like to contribute. Note: the College moved student tailgates from March Field to Anderson Courtyard in front of Watson Hall, and AHE/ACE.
3:30PM – 6:30PM Lafayette v Bucknell Football Game
DKE shows up in force for the football game. If you register for the College’s Tailgate & Game Package, your tickets are included in that cost. If not, you can buy tickets directly from the goleopards website.
6:30PM – 10:30PM Oktoberfest: Homecoming @ DKE!
What you’ve been waiting for… Help your brothers keep up a time honored tradition: main bar room parties in the DKE House. Last year we re-christened the bar room. This year we are inviting all Rho Dekes and our families back to the DKE House immediately following the game for Oktoberfest. We’ll be serving appetizers followed by a buffet dinner Oktoberfest style – prepared by our very own Walter Luby! Return the tradition of bringing a case of your favorite beer back to the DKE House to share with your brothers (yes, please do BYOB).
Our undergrads are still putting the finishing touches on big plans for the return of Oktoberfest. Like most DKE events, you don’t want to miss this!
So come back to the DKE House to unwind and hopefully celebrate the thumping we just delivered to the Bison with your fellow Dekes.
Please be sure to register for Homecoming 2013, and under “Tailgating with Affinity Group” click the box for Delta Kappa Epsilon, Michael De Lisi ’03. If you want to nosh the College’s tailgate make sure to register for that too, but be sure to also the click box for DKE under “Joining your Affinity Group? ” If you don’t want the College’s tailgate, simply enter the number of people in your party under “On Campus Only.”
See you at the DKE House in a few short weeks!
