Founded in 1856 at Norwich University in Vermont, Theta Chi has more than 155,000 initiates across the nation and has had 226 chapters installed nationally since 1856. We believe our brotherhood to be one of the tightest on campus, and in recent years we have been rapidly growing. Our chapter strives to be the best at everything we do, winning Second Place in Greek Week 2012, Fourth Place in Greek Week 2013, and Third Place in Air Band 2014. Due to our thorough participation on campus and our academic excellence, we have a Gold CAP status, which allows us to enjoy full social privileges such as: mixers with sororities, Homecoming, Greek Week, formal, etc. Every semester we raise money for our chapter's national philanthropy ReMIND/The Bob Woodruff Foundation, through events, such as last year's first annual ΘXtoberfest and Chi fest. Our brothers participate fully in intramural sports such as basketball, football, soccer, dodgeball, etc.
With a strict no-hazing policy, our new member education process is designed to inform potential brothers about the history of our chapter both locally, and internationally. Our maxim, "Alma Mater first, and Theta Chi for Alma Mater" stresses the importance of achieving a college degree while enjoying what the brotherhood has to offer. Consistently above the all-men's GPA, we pursue our academic goals while learning vital leadership skills. Winner of the Alter Award, the highest award given to a chapter by our International Headquarters, our chapter sets an example not only here at UD, but across the nation as well. The ideals and objectives of Theta Chi can be seen through the strong wording of our Creed. Our big brother program, matches new members with experienced brothers to make the learning process easier and answer any questions that might be presented. We encourage you to become part of an experience you'll never forget.
