First of the new fraternities, Alpha Delta Chi, has about 35 members, led by President Theodore “Ted” Fitzelle.

Ted explained that the group was formed last spring when he and 19 of his friends “decided we could have more fun if we were organized.”

Largest of the fraternities is Alpha Gamma Psi, led by President Richard Condon.

After the exclusion of sophomores by both fraternities, Craig Ritchko, a sophomore,decided to form another group, calling his Alpha Sigma Pi.

The sororities are Tau Phi Epsilon, led by President Diane Farmakis, and Sigma Phi, led by Janice LaMonica.

Recently, Alpha Delta Chi donated $30 to the city-sponsored Youth Center for records. Every year, the sororities contribute sums of money and members’ time to charity projects.
