Delta Chi is an international social fraternity formed on October 13, 1890, at Cornell University. Originally formed as a law fraternity, and have since transitioned into a general social fraternity, we have over 100,000 initiates world-wide.
When Delta Chi started the colonization at Kettering University, it was decided that having two unique chapters was the best way to establish a presence on campus. The chapters, chartered in 1998, share an ABT (Alumni Board of Trustees) and Housing Corporation but have unique officers and by-laws. Additionally, the chapters also share the chapter house.
Despite this distinction, the brothers of both chapters are still brothers of Delta Chi, much as our fellow Delta Chi from any other chapter, and we still hold true to the original idealism set forth by our founders, including our motto "Leges" (Law).
Our nationally preferred philanthropic organization is "The V Foundation", an organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer.
