Be different. Be better. Be Delta Chi.

Delta Chi is one of the newest, up-and-coming fraternities on campus. We are looking for highly motivated gentlemen to help establish traditions for years to come. It's never too late to have the time of your life.


Why Go Greek?

 

Fraternity and sorority members are referred to as "Greeks" not because of any Grecian ancestry but rather because of our practice of using Greek letters to identify our particular organizations. Greeks are proud of their fraternities or sororities, and that pride tends to carry over into other aspects of their personal and professional lives.

 

Being Greek means more than just wearing "letters", attending meetings, and going to parties. Being in a fraternity is about making friendships that will last far beyond your college years, while enhancing your personal development. You will do this by committing to Delta Chi's ideals of friendship, character, justice, and education. Being Greek means being respected for your individuality, while being part of a brotherhood of individuals who share the same goals and values. Your brothers are there to support you long after you leave Mason.


Greek individuals comprise only 2% of the population of the United States. However, this 2% is very successful group of individuals:

  •  Over 85% of the student leaders on some 730 campuses are involved in the Greek community.
  •   All but eight U.S. Presidents born after 1825 have been fraternity men. Today, 76% of all U.S. Congressmen and Senators are Greek.
  •   Of the United States' 50 largest corporations, 43 are led by fraternity men or sorority women.
  •   Undergraduate fraternity and sorority members raise over $7 million for charity every year.
  •   A U.S. Government study shows that over 70% of all those who join a fraternity/ sorority graduate, while less than 50% of all non-fraternity/sorority persons graduate.
  •   Students who join Greek organizations are more likely to return to school the following year.
  • Greeks volunteer over 850,000 hours annually across North America.
  • Approximately 85% of the top executives of Fortune 500 companies belong to a fraternity or sorority

This does not mean that if you join a fraternity or sorority, you will automatically be successful. It does mean that the skills and experiences gained while in a fraternity or sorority will help put you on a path toward success.


Why Rush Delta Chi at George Mason University?

 

This is a frequent question we are asked. Our answer is quite simple. We feel that as a group we offer an experience that is unmatched here at Mason.  As a chapter we encourage maturity and diversity in our membership.  Our diversity makes us stand out in the Greek community.  We are able to include many different types of people without sacrificing a strong brotherhood.  In fact, we believe that our brotherhood is strengthened by the diversity of perspectives within our chapter.  We are mature gentlemen who stand out as campus and community leaders, and who share a commitment to service and personal improvement.

 

You may even know some famous Delta Chi's: Former Jacksonville Jaguars Head Coach Jack DelRio, Actor Kevin Costner, Actor Ashton Kutcher, Thomas Glasgow, former COO for McDonald's, Benjamin Harrison, former President of the United States, Pat Gillick, GM for the Seattle Mariners, Sean Salsbury, ESPN Analyst and former San Diego Chargers QB, Nolan Harrison, defensive lineman for the Washington Redskins, Ron Mix, NFL Hall of Famer, Space shuttle commander Henry Hartsfield, and Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama to name a few.
