Dear Central Office,
On May 12th, 2018 the Eta Chi chapter of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona was scheduled to be reactivated. It is with the deepest sincerity that we request along with additional support from this petition that a pledge class be given what was taken from them six years ago.
With less than twenty-four hours to initiation, the Gamma Rho class was told that they would not be crossing. Fourteen students pledged a full quarter winter of 2012. The next day on March 3rd, they would have become what they worked hard to earn. However, on March 2nd Gamma Rho got notice that they would not be initiating. The point throughout their pledging process that would hurt them the most.
Jack Henry Gamboa Jr., Sonny Ton, Elaine Wang, Matthew Tanumathaya, Sour Ngin, Mary Mar, Robert Perez, Kevin Mok, Justin Liwag, Hunter Yamashiro, John Daniel Morales, Kristine Fong, Sharon Chung, and Jacky Tran.
These 14 students sacrificed enormous amounts of time, energy, grades, restful nights and other opportunities to pledge for Delta Sigma Pi. They studied our bylaws, remembered the names of our four founders, recited our purpose, embodied the professionalism that DSP represented, and much more. Similar to what each of us did to become a bro.
Eta chi assumes the responsibility of what happened. We apologize for letting our fraternity and our school down. We apologize for what harm we caused to those affected. We also apologize for the pain we've brought upon to our pledge class. We followed all sanctions issued by Judicial Affairs and we on plan continuing to abide by the behavior standards expected from us. We cannot undo what was wronged in the past, but we can set an example of how a chapter should behave and support one another.
It is our goal to sincerely apologize for our past actions. It is not what the fraternity or the school stands for. It was not what our chapter was built upon and it was not what kept us together this long. Please do not let the actions of the chapter continue to harm the Gamma Rho class. We can never give Gamma Rho back what they lost, we would like to give them back a piece of what we cherished most in college; the feeling of belonging.
From Eta Chi along with the support from everyone on this petition; We'd like to sincerely apologize and plea that the Gamma Rho class membership to DSP be considered.
Eta Chi and Supporters.
