For all the jokes that get thrown in Ann Arbor’s direction, I’ll say this: those Wolverines probably have the best Greek life architecture in the Midwest. Soon, the Maize and Blue’s campus will get yet another mansion to write home to Mom about, and it looks ballin’ as hell.
The University of Michigan’s Delta Chi is throwing a smooth $3 million at a project that says, “out with the old, in with the new.” The boys down at 1705 Hill St. are demolishing their current house, which was built in 1906, and are replacing it with a new crib that will open up in 2016.
The crazy thing about the new house? According to former Delta Chi President Bryan Glesmann, the basement is designed so they can literally clean it with a fire hose, which is “super-efficient for after-party cleanup.” Wouldn’t want those pledges to have to work too hard, after all. Dammit, Glesmann. In lieu of subjecting the worst pledge class ever to good, old-fashioned, toothbrush cleaning, you better spray down those pledges every night, like the delousing scene in “Shawshank Redemption.” Don’t let me down, son.
Kicking the past to the curb in order to build for the future is never easy to do. However, if you’re spending $3 million on your house and putting private bathrooms in every room like these guys are, those growing pains will probably hurt a lot less.
I’d usually be the first to rip on Michigan, but sometimes you have to give credit where credit is due. This house looks legit.
I tip my hat, sirs.
