Organization Facts: 

Delta Chi was founded on October 13, 1890 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. It was originally formed as a Law Fraternity but in 1922, the Fraternity opened its membership to men in all areas of study. In 1929, Delta Chi became the first fraternity to officially abolish the hazing practices associated with “hell week”. There are currently 137 chapters and colonies across the U.S. and Canada with over 107,000 initiates. The house colors are Red and Buff, and the house flower is the White Carnation.
