Foundation The Delta Chi Fraternity was originally founded on October 13th, 1890 at Cornell
University, and here at the University of Maryland in 1990. Delta Chi was originally founded as a professional fraternity
for law students based on the ideals of Sir Edward Coke. In 1922, Delta Chi officially converted from a professional fraternity
to the social fraternity we have today.
Delta Chi Maryland currently has 68 members, 32 of which live in our chapter house at 6 Fraternity Row. Those not currently
living in the main house can be found anywhere from several Knox towers apartments, houses, or on-campus dorms or apartments.
Athletics- Intramural sports are a greatly contribute to the brotherhood of Delta Chi.
In the highly competitive fraternity sports leagues, we have (insert success of sports here, including soccer (indoor and
out), basketball, flag football, and anything else).
Outside of organized leagues, sports are still a great pastime for many of the brothers. The basketball court behind our
chapter house is constantly used, football is played on the field within Fraternity row, and local golf courses and driving
ranges are frequently visited.
Social The superior social life of Delta Chi is a reflection of the continuous growth of
our chapter in years past, and our ongoing commitment to bettering ourselves today.
Delta Chi participates in many functions at the local bars in College Park. The specials throughout the week attract
many brothers, as well as any performance or event. The bars serve as a great third-party vendor for socials with a sorority,
or even a few sororities and other fraternities combined.
Delta Chi hosts tailgates before every home football game in the fall and before a few home lacrosse games in the spring
at both on-campus and off-campus locations. Tailgates are one of the best social events we have as a fraternity.
Brotherhood events, an organized event involving sports or a party atmosphere exclusively with brothers, are held weekly
to improve the overall household brotherhood.
Community Service The University requires hours of community service from each fraternity.
We take pride in using this opportunity to make a difference in the surrounding community. In the past year, members have
volunteered at a children's hospital in Washington D.C., helped other organizations on campus such as the domestic violence
group Teal and Purple, (add others here).
The national philanthropy of Delta Chi is the Jimmy V foundation for Cancer Research. With the earnings from the fundraiser
Delta Chi Movers, we are proud to be the highest donor of all the Delta Chi chapters in the nation to the V foundation.
"We need money for research. It may not save my life. It may save my children's lives. It may save someone you love."
