NY (OPENPRESS) September 20, 2005 – As college fraternities everywhere
are kicking off their fall recruitment schedules with viewings of
ultimate fighting and trips to the arcade, the Delta Chapter of Theta
Chi Fraternity at RPI is injecting some fresh, live entertainment into
their schedule. On Thursday, September 22 at Darrin Communications
Center, Theta Chi is hosting musical comedian and Theta Chi alum Evan
2001 graduate of Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, Wecksell
is a brother from Theta Chi's Epsilon Theta Chapter. He is also the
Chapter's Alumni President.

experiences to appeal to possible new members and entertain everyone
brothers here at Delta [Chapter] are great people," says Wecksell.
"Everyone is going to have a great time, and potential rushes and
their parents can rest assured that this is a great House. These guys
are far from that "frat" stereotype."
Theta Chi went dry in 2003, Delta Chapter has welcomed the new
alcohol-free policy. The House has been hosting many successful dry
events including last spring’s Parents Weekend, and this fall’s

“We’re really looking forward to having Evan here. It will be a good
chance to get some laughs in and share some time with the rest of the
RPI community,” says Theta Chi Vice President Ed Davidson.

PM at Darrin Communications Center on the RPI campus located in Troy,
New York. The show is free for all RPI students.
Stand-up Comedian and Singer/Songwriter Evan Wecksell is one of the
funniest and most energetic performers to emerge from New York’s
comedy clubs and musical venues. Often compared to comedic superstars
Adam Sandler and Stephen Lynch, Evan’s act is a blend of comedy and
music that celebrates dysfunctional relationships, endorses unorthodox
career paths and makes fun of bad music. Later this year, Evan will
appear on VH1’s “I Love the 80s 3D,” “I Love the 70s II” and “I Love
the Holidays.” For more information on Evan Wecksell please visit
Theta Chi Fraternity:
Theta Chi is an international fraternity made up of more than 160
chapters and colonies. The Delta Chapter at the Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute was established in 1908, which helped to mark a new era of
country-wide expansion and national organization and administration.
Although hindered by a serious depression and two world wars, Theta
Chi has grown, and prospered beyond the dreams of the Founders and
holds a prominent position among the national fraternity scene. For
