Become a Brother
Men at Trine University join Delta Chi for a variety of reasons:
- Are you interested in becoming friends with men who are just like you?
- Do you like to get out of the dorms to hang out and have fun?
- Are you serious about college and your future career?
- Do you want to gain important leadership skills that cannot be gained in the classroom alone?
And if you want to join an experience that will last a lifetime…
…we are looking for members like you.
Who can join Delta Chi?
Delta Chi is a general college social fraternity. This means that all undergraduate men are eligible for admission. You must be a student at Trine University to be eligible to join the Tri-State Chapter. National policy prohibits the initiation of members of other social fraternities. Current policies of the Tri-State Chapter require that a man have a 2.65/4.0 cumulative GPA before entering associate membership.
What are the pre-association requirements?
Current policies of the Tri-State Chapter require that a man have a 2.65/4.0 cumulative GPA before entering associate membership. This is higher than the Trine University policy requiring a 2.0/4.0 GPA or the IFC requirement of 2.3/4.0. You must be a student at Trine University to join our chapter.
What happens during Associate Membership in Delta Chi?
We believe the joining of a fraternity should not be a physical ordeal. In 1929, Delta Chi became the first national fraternity to outlaw hazing. The Tri-State Chapter continues the non-hazing approach to bringing men into our Bond of brotherhood. During the 8 week associate membership, the associate will study the fraternity and chapter they wish to join. Our associate member program focuses on giving the associate the skills to become a productive member of the fraternity, and a well-balanced student. The academic well-being of the associate member is of primary importance.
Will I be expected to drink alcohol to join?
Absolutely not. Delta Chi practices a policy of “Dry Rush”, which basically means that events held to meet prospective members will not include alcohol. It is stressed throughout our brotherhood the consumption of alcohol is a personal decision, and the abuse of alcohol will not be tolerated.
How do I let the brothers know I’m interested?
Any alumnus, active member, or associate member of Delta Chi will be glad to answer any question you may have. Feel free to stop in any time, or come to Thursday Night Wing Night @ 9:00. We are always willing to give tours of our homes, and share a little bit about our fraternity.
