On November 1, 2019, the brothers of Epsilon Xi Chapter and members of their Theta Pledge Class -- all students at Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology -- paid a visit to the Alpha Phi Delta Archives in Camden, Delaware. While visiting the Archives the men of Epsilon Xi got to see historical items and documents -- including some originally handled by our founders. Pictured above are the brothers and pledges of Epsilon Xi being regaled with stories from Alpha Phi Delta's history by National Historian, Ronald Smé during their visit (at right).
