On Aug. 26, 2017, Delta Chi brothers moved into their new home adjacent to the Chanute Housing Complex, becoming the first fraternity at Embry-Riddle to build and own a house on-campus. The house is located at 1615 Woodcrest Drive, near the corner of Beville Road and South Clyde Morris Boulevard. This brand-new $2.5 million building represents the state of the art of fraternal living with over 9,000 square feet of space and can accommodate up to 22 brothers in 12 fully-furnished bedrooms. The new house also features a community kitchen, a private courtyard, open-air balcony and a spacious chapter room for relaxing, social events, and meetings. There is nothing else quite like it at Embry-Riddle.

With the opening of the new house, Delta Chi now offers a complete fraternity experience on campus. The members of Delta Chi are known for their leadership on campus, academic performance, and are respected as gentlemen. The chapter builds brotherhood and contributes to the community by organizing and participating in numerous philanthropy events, intramural athletics, and social events. Within Delta Chi, there is always someone to hang out with, and there is always something going on.

The Embry-Riddle Chapter of Delta Chi began in November 1967 as Pi Sigma Phi, a local fraternity, and the first social fraternity recognized at Embry-Riddle. Experiencing rapid growth, Pi Sigma Phi was approached by the Delta Chi International Headquarters in 1970 and formally chartered as Delta Chi on March 11, 1972. Now approaching its 50th Anniversary, Delta Chi has consistently distinguished itself by its four core values: promoting friendship, developing character, advancing justice, and assisting in the acquisition of a sound education.

Delta Chi welcomes everyone back to campus for another great year and extends a special welcome to all new freshmen and transfer students.
