As the newest fraternity on Heidelberg’s campus, the goal of Rho Eta Delta is to build better men through the classroom, community, and Heidelberg itself. Our virtues are Pride, Honor, and Dignity and our values are Leadership, Integrity, Character, Dedication, and Respect. Which then leads into our motto: Character Connects Us All. Essentially, Rho Eta Delta wants to cultivate a strong, professional, and intelligent group of men who value progress for the sake of bonding with upstanding individuals. Academics and leadership are a major focus of Rho Eta Delta. We, of course, have our corollary, the Rhos' Buds, who are an integral part of our group. We hold the same expectations for the women of the group just as we do the men.
Furthermore, our community service and fundraising events are rather simple. Every semester, we help clean Hedges-Boyer Park and pick up trash to help the environment. Additionally, we raise awareness and donate money each year to Encephalitis Global, a charity dedicated to educating communities about the disease that is Encephalitis. Rho Eta Delta is passionate about this cause because one of our alumni, Matt Karlovec, has this unfortunate and rare disease.
A fun fact about us is that “We don’t take ourselves seriously, but we take what we do seriously.”
