On Saturday 4\14 @ 2pm the 4th Annual Jeremy Saxe Memorial Basket Ball Tournament will be held in Kirby Sports Complex. Jeremy, an extremely bright, gifted, and selfless individual, passed away in the fall of 2008 from an extremely rare and undiagnosed heart condtion: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The RHO class of 09 would like to cordially invite all brothers to participate via playing in the tournament, donating, or spreading word of the event. The Jeremy Saxe Foundation is a 501c3 organization.

I am pleased to announce that DKE obtained the highest rating of “Excellent” for Compass in 2011. This is the third time in the past four years that DKE has received this rating. Not only did our brothers excel in the area of Compass, but they did it the best, as DKE is currently ranked the highest at Lafayette College in this category compared to other fraternities. The undergraduate students have done a great job at coming up with new and innovative compass programs, as well as keeping with tradition of their past brothers. One example of the Rho spirit was the 3rd annual Jeremy Saxe Basketball Tournament. The brothers were able to contribute close to $3,000 for the JIWANKO SAATHIHARU: Jeremy Saxe Foundation for Education and Development.
Brothers from the classes of 08, 09, and 10 were also in attendance to help remember the memory of their fallen brother, and help contribute to the foundation’s efforts of building a school in Nepal in Jeremy’s memory.Great work Undergraduates, and Keep Up the Good Work. See the full history of our COMPASS scores.
I am pleased to announce that DKE RHO has won the 2011 Aaron O. Hoff Award for Outstanding Living Group. The Hoff Awards are awarded in categories such as Athletic Group of the Year, Faculty Member of the Year, etc, and they’re considered among the most prestigious of awards given out at the end of each school year. The undergraduates this year have worked hard to promote an image on campus of excellence which we should be proud of. In a time where fraternities have been shown in negative light, it is encouraging to see that DKE RHO is still proudly represented by Gentlemen, Scholars, and Jolly Good Fellows.
A copy of our winning nomination can be found here.
I am pleased to announce that DKE obtained the highest rating of “Excellent” for 2007. Only one other fraternity received this rating this year. We are the first fraternities to achieve this feat since the college implemented COMPASS in 2003.
It took a lot of hard work to reach this goal. To see what COMPASS is all about visit this page. Congratulations to both the undergraduates and alumni who made this possible.
The undergrads invited several DKE alumni to the house Thursday, November 8th to kickoff this exciting program at 8PM. Stephen Bielamowicz ’99, Joseph Galyean ’04, Anthony Hawthorne ’04, John Troup ’04, Michael Caulfield ’05, and Michael Lefante ’06 will be speaking about their experiences as Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineers at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey. They will also cover the graduate school and career opportunities they’ve explored in that area. Salvatore Caiazzo ’03 will speak about his successes and career as a Civil Engineer in the Poconos.
This is the first in a series of talks that we hope to repeat each semester. In the spring we plan on hosting an event focused on legal professions. If you are interested in participating, please contact us and let us know what topic you wish to speak on. The undergrads will be reaching out to the alumni with experience in a different field they’re interested in each semester.
