Delta Chi Fraternity

Iowa City, United States

On October 13, 1890 eleven law students at Cornell University formed a Law Fraternity, Delta Chi. In 1922, the Fraternity officially went "general", thus opening its membership to men in all areas of study. Delta Chi, in 1929, became the first fraternity to officially abolish the hazing practices associated with "hell week". Delta Chi has 120 chapters and colonies operating throughout the United States and Canada. Distribution roughly follows the distribution of colleges and universities across the continent. Delta Chi has just over 100,000 initiates.
