The moment had finally arrived. As the undergraduates stepped into their new House for the first time, they could tell that there was plenty of work yet to be done. But that did not matter to them. What mattered was that this was there House again, a place they could finally call home. Over half the fraternity showed up on that cold, morning of January 2nd, 2017 to help move 25 bedroom sets of furniture, and their excitement was palpable. There were a handful of graduates helping who shared their enthusiasm. Even as the rain began to pour and the couches and beds grew heavier in their weary arms, the young men's energy did not diminish. 
It was a hard day of work, but all of the labor was worthwhile. Just like the Revitalize Chi Upsilon campaign. We should take pride in the fact that our chapter lives in the House that we called home, central to campus, in the home of one of the University of Chicago's greatest professors. Now, we will be able to say that they have one of the finest accommodations on campus.
We have come a long way in this project, and the Chapter and the House have changed quite a bit through out the years. There have been ups and downs, and in the House's case, many more downs in recent years. We are finally restoring our once proud House to its former glory. In fact, it will be far better and more functional as a Fraternity House in its new form. As you can tell from some of the pictures above, though, we are not yet finished.


We need our graduate's support to complete this project. We have less than a quarter of a million dollars to complete our fundraising goal, and we have just over 100 brothers who have given to the campaign. That means there are still more than 700 brothers who have the ability to make a meaningful contribution to a project that was so important. The Chapter is a reflection of the character of those who built and maintained it. So, if we want to have undergraduate brothers who care about the House and live the ideals of Phi Gamma Delta, then we too must do so. The best way to show this is to support Revitalize Chi Upsilon.
We cannot finish this project without all of your help. A new era is just beginning in the Chapter. It is up to us to decide if we want to help make it the best fraternity it can be or ignore it and let it rot and decay. Let's make the right choice.

Good luck with your move! I hope that you find more people to meet and strangers to be acquainted with. Moving truly is both a joyous and sad occasion. Sad, because you get to leave behind the friends you made and loved ones you left. Happy, because you get to experience new things and meet new people in your life. Good luck and God bless!

Congratulations on your moving day! I’m definitely sure that those 100 brothers who helped you out physically and financially are so proud and happy of the outcome. Look at your new brotherhood house. It looks so great and comfortable too. I hope that you’ll be able to maintain the beauty of your brotherhood house for a lifetime. It’s one thing that you’ll always remember that you did something charitable for your organization. I’m happy for all of you and I hope you’ll get more donations for all other needs to be done in your brotherhood house.

Perhaps one of the best takeaways from moving out to a new place is the self-discovery you'll have. The more you travel and live abroad, the more your priorities will shift and you won't be able to help but learn about yourself along the way. The choice to go out on a limb and take responsibility for your own life is an incredibly powerful experience. Taking your destiny into your own hands allows you to rediscover your dreams, desires and to shape the path in front of you.

You only need to look through the local newspaper to see the amount of van orientated services there are available today. Home removals are no exception. If all you need is a few items of furniture shifting then the cost savings can be very appealing. But is it wise to trust bigger moves to just a man with a van?

I can never stress enough how important oil changes are, especially in cars nowadays. I've seen too many times customers who neglect to keep their oil changed regularly and it ends up costing them a fortune. Also, see why coolant changes are so important.

Moving, regardless of the distance, is a major job that involves hours of packing, unpacking and sometimes heavy travel time as well. To help alleviate the stress, it is good to have movers in your corner that offer...
