Lafayette's chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity placed in two of four categories this year in the competition for the national organization's Lion Trophy.

At the national fraternity's summer convention, the group learned that it won third place for both alumni relations and chapter improvement. It competed among at least 40 chapters, according to DKE president Michael DeLisi '03, an electrical and chemical engineering major from Basking Ridge, N.J.

“For chapter improvement, we've been working to improve the quality of living in the house,” he says. “We've put in new couches downstairs, installed new shades, and planted trees in the back.”

In alumni relations, DKE has created new positions for alumni job networking and for implementation of the new STEPS process that takes effect in December.

For philanthropy, the fraternity is establishing an audio book program for those who cannot read anymore, says DeLisi.
