With the beginning of every new semester comes the opportunity to save a child’s life. This semester Phi Delta Epsilon is hosting another blood drive to support Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Your donations will make a huge impact on children suffering from life threatening diseases and disorders.

Every month, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles needs around 1000 pints of blood to operate its life-saving procedures and heal its sick children. However, the hospital typically obtains around 800 pints from its donors’ valued contributions. Tuesday, February 21st, Phi Delta Epsilon hopes to make a difference. In the past, the fraternity has helped CHLA attain nearly 100 pints of blood, but we know we can do better! So please come support Phi Delta Epsilon and help CHLA in its mission to provide a healthier future for its children at the Matador Bookstore Complex from 8 AM to 2 PM on Tuesday February 21st!

2. Check your Vital Signs

    Hello Phi Delta Epsilon!

    As I mentioned in my committee report, the website will, from here on, be updated biweekly. To kickstart Technology Committee’s semester, the website’s Committee and Recruitment pages have been updated with the most recent information. Not only that, but this blog will contain information regarding future events (such as our CHLA blood drive on February 21st), highlights from previous events, interviews with new and old members, interviews with alumni and more!

    In the near future, you can expect to see pictures from Karaoke Night, Winterball, the blood drive and more, as well as videos, on our Multimedia Page. Also, be prepared to find a new facebook page representing our chapter. The page is entitled, “Phi Delta Epsilon CA Theta.” The old Facebook page will still be active, but it will be reserved primarily for old members. Therefore, if you want to keep up with our events, news and more on the social networking website, please like the page!

    If anybody has any questions regarding the website, the facebook page, the committee pictures or anything else, email me at

    Your Technology Committee Chair,

    Ram Wolman
