Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the Original Chartering of
Rho Chapter – University of Rhode Island
January 10, 2018
Dear Rho Alumni, Brothers and Friends:
2018 is a very special year in the history of Rho Chapter. The original chartering of the chapter at then RI State College was held on April 1, 1928. 90 years ago. It was also 40 years ago, in 1978 that Rho Chapter was re-chartered at URI. And five years ago, the chapter was once again re-chartered. We have a lot to celebrate!!!
From March 23-25, 2018, the next Rhounion will celebrate these milestones and a lot more. Whether you were on campus last week, In October or back when you graduated, we hope you and your significant other will be joining us for the weekend that will be held in and around beautiful Kingston RI. The following summarizes the weekend activities, hotel options, payment options, and registration form. Registration form and payments are due by March 1, 2018.
We look forward to seeing you in March to celebrate Rho’s 90th anniversary. For more information, please contact either Josh or Richard.
