Parents of Delta Chi Members
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about The Delta Chi Fraternity. We want you to be as excited and comfortable with your son’s interest in the Fraternity as he is.
Delta Chi understands that the expectations of today’s college men are growing, and as a Fraternity we wish to enable your son to meet and exceed those expectations and be a successful member after graduation. The Fraternity provides support to our chapters and individual members through leadership programs, written and online programming and Leadership Consultant visits to all chapters and colonies on a regular basis. Alumni are engaged to supervise the operations of the chapters, and minimum standards for all Delta Chi chapters and colonies are in place to ensure all brothers are having a quality fraternity experience.
What is Delta Chi?
On October 13, 1890, eleven law students at Cornell University formed a Law Fraternity, Delta Chi. In 1922, the Fraternity officially went “general,” thus opening its membership to men in all areas of study. In 1929, Delta Chi became the first fraternity to officially abolish hazing practices associated with “hell week.” Since its founding at Cornell, Delta Chi has grown to more than 120 chapters and colonies across the United States and Canada and has initiated more than 107,000 brothers. The success of Delta Chi has hinged on the continued recruitment of excellent young men and the support of experienced alumni from the local to international level.
