External Improvements to the Chapter Lodge Now Complete

Over the last couple of years, the DKE Lodge at 13 South Avenue has undergone a series of projects to seal up the exterior of the house. Projects including the rebuilding of the front porch, repairs to the external wood surfaces on the north, east and south faces of the house, and improvements to water drainage systems away from the house have been completed in the past couple of years. Efforts to repair, repoint, and repaint wood and stone surfaces on the western face of the house, as well as address needed masonry and chimney repairs were completed shortly after Thanksgiving 2022.

Alumni Involvement

The Delta Chi chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon has remained an important and historic institution on the Cornell campus for over 150 years because of the dedication of hundreds of DKE brothers that remain engaged long after they complete their university education. DKE alumni attend summer reunions, participate in philanthropical events, provide professional networking and career guidance to recent graduates, and volunteer for house improvement projects. Alumni also contribute financially to the maintenance and upkeep of our historic Grey Stone Mansion through donations to Cornell University’s DKE Group Housing Fund and the alumni managed Delta Chi Association (501c3).
