Xi Delta Chapter installed at Stony Brook University

Hello and happy Monday, Brothers –

On behalf of the National Council, I am proud to announce the successful chartering and installation of the Xi Delta chapter at Stony Brook University! The process started earlier this semester with a petitioning group of nineteen band members, which was led by Marco Melendez and their Director of Bands, Dr. Justin Stolarik. The initiation and installation ceremonies took place at their institution on Sunday, December 4th, 2022.

This process would not have been possible without the help of our dedicated Advising Team, which was led by NED Governor, Rassii Elliott. The Advising Team consisted of several NED alumni members, who are listed below. Thank you to these Brothers for their guidance and leadership in this process. We are deeply grateful for their service and support.

Stony Brook Advising Team

      • Michael Napolitano (Life Member, Kappa Upsilon & Sponsor/DOB Committee Co-Chair)
      • Laura Borzellieri (Life Member, Lambda Delta & Curriculum Committee Member)
      • Evan Choy (Life Member, Kappa Gamma & Chapter Ops Committee Member)
      • Mia Harvey (Alumna, Nu Zeta & Communications Committee Member)

Lastly, I would like to give thanks to everyone else who assisted with this process: thank you to the Eta Rho chapter at West Chester University for providing the Ritual gear; thank you to Michael Coppola (Life Member, Kappa Upsilon) and Collin Alekson (Alumnus, Nu Zeta) for their assistance; and thank you to our HQ staff for all of their support in making this possible. It was extremely heartwarming to see everyone come together to welcome our new Brothers. We are excited to transition to the post-installation process with Xi Delta and for the opportunity to have these students represented at the upcoming NED and National Conventions. Please help us congratulate and welcome them to the Brotherhood! AEA.
