Hartford on the Horizon

Written by TDS National. Posted in News & Updates

For Immediate Release

New York, NY - The National Board is pleased to announce that the University of Hartford (UHart) has invited Theta Delta Sigma to establish a chapter in Fall 2014.

Theta Delta Sigma will join 8 North-American Interfraternity Conference and 6 National Panhellenic Conference groups on campus. Theta Delta Sigma will be the first multicultural fraternal organization to officially establish a chapter at the University.


This initiative will mark Theta Delta Sigma’s second attempt to establish a chapter at the University. The original effort was made almost a decade ago, in 2005, concurrent with our colonization at Trinity College (Hartford County chapter). At that time, the interest group (Cohesion) consisted of about 16 students who, after several months, were not initiated. We are confident that this time around, with the support of the Student Activities and Greek Life staff, that our efforts will be successful. Though it might be taboo, the new entity will be known as Cohesion until achieving chapter status and receiving a Greek letter designation.


Established in 1957, the University of Hartford is a private, nonsectarian, university located in West Hartford, Connecticut. UHart has an enrollment of approximately 5,000 undergraduates with a 30% underrepresented student population. With students from 48 states and 63 countries, UHart has become a university for the world.
