Whats located on S 4 th Street? South 4th Street
Phi Delta Theta This house was painted white and blue, to further represent the Frat because it is there official colors. They obtained this house in 1989, just a block from Lincoln Park which had denied the fraternity from buying a house just a year prior. The brothers involved in the fraternity did lots of work, such as steaming the green floral wallpaper off the walls, and hauling the 200 pound boulders out of the cellar in order to turn it into a rec-room 639 S. 4th St.
Whats located on S & N Broad St? S & N Broad Street
Kappa Sigma We looked in the Yellow pages and contacted the Student Organizations office There were two addresses given. Both were on Broad St. When we were looking to take pictures of their houses, these were the two that were at the addresses. Does Kappa Sigma really live in the basement of a church? We arent really sure about that either.

What is the only frat on the upper campus area?
Delta Chi 1300 Warren St. After years of talk and spectulation, Delta Chi was able to purchase a new house with the help of Alumni Myke Hubbard. The house is only two blocks from the heart of campus, on the corner of Warren St. and Balcerzak. Under the guidance of Dr. Darryl Adams numerous improvements were made to the house... Including the conversion of the 3 season porch into a bedroom, the complete restructure of the basement, wiring was changed, windows installed, and the whole house was brought up to current codes.
