Requirements to join:
In addition to being a full-time student at Georgia Southern Univeristy, The Georgia Southern Chapter of the Delta Chi Fraternity looks for three primary qualifications in Potential New Members (PNMs):
GRADES: Do you have the grades?
We require High School students entering their first semester of college to have a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale; existing college students must have a 2.75 cumulative GPA. Once initiated, all members are expected to earn at least a 2.7 semester and cumulative GPA, to remain in Good Standing.

To accept the advantages of Brotherhood, you must also live up to its obligations. Membership dues are assessed during the Fall and Spring semester; payment plans are available for those who need to make installments. *Associate Member dues (during pledging) include all related Initiation costs.
We value teamwork, and those who strive to make a difference. As such one of the following requirements must be met:
A) A member of a varsity or club sport while in High School
B) Involved as a participant (preferably a leader) within a civic or religious organization such as Boy Scouts, Church Youth Group, Fine Arts, etc.
11 Basic Expectations
Delta Chi has a collection of expectations for each member to uphold. These Eleven Basic Expectations serve as an extension of our Preamble and give us more specific principles to live by:
Why should I join Delta Chi?
Delta Chi offers one of the most complete fraternity experiences available at Georgia Southern. Our brothers are leaders across campus and serve on IFC and SGA. Delta Chi also has a great social scene that includes social events with sororities, fall and spring parties, and date nights. From brotherhood camping and kayaking trips to intramurals, you will find everything that you are looking for in a fraternity. If Delta Chi sounds like it might be a good fit for you, contact our Recruitment Chairman at RUSH@gsudeltachi.org or fill out the form above. We pride ourselves on Southern Hospitality, so feel free to stop by our house to introduce yourself and get to know what being a Brother in Delta Chi is all about!
Friendship and Loyalty
“The ability of the fraternity movement to survive and grow, in spite of many negative circumstances, might be explained by the fact that it has two quite different sets of purposes and characteristics. One of these might be characterized as a group of spiritual objectives. These have remained rather constant since the inception of the fraternity idea. Included among these purposes are the promotion of friendship, loyalty to a ritual, and idealism. Without such high motives, constantly recalled and implemented, it is probable that fraternities as we know them, might long ago have so changed as to lose their present identity...”
-–Marsh W. White, VCU 1953
How to get a Bid to join:
We're always looking for high caliber men to join our Brotherhood. There are two primary ways that men find their way into receiving a Bid to join Delta Chi.
Once the Bid Day celebration is over, typically the next day, you will be officially Pinned-In as an Associate Member in The Delta Chi Fraternity, and your new member education program will begin.
Associate Member Education Program
You will go through an 8-week Associate Member Education Program, before Initiation may commence. The program is designed to give you a foundational understanding of being a Brother, focused on the history, operations, and social etiquette of our Fraternity. Class Officers will be selected by your peers. You must have all of your dues paid and mid-term grades submitted, prior to initiation.
You'll need a pair (or two) of dress khakis, brown or black dress shoes, corresponding belt and dress socks, a white (long-sleeve) dress shirt, a blue blazer and either a red/ yellow or GSU colored tie.
