LETTER TO THE PARENTS

Dear Parents,

Thank you for investing the time to gather information about Delta Chi. We hope that your visit to our website provides you a glimpse of what your son might experience if he were to join our fraternity.

We believe that there are significant benefits to be gained by becoming a member of Delta Chi. Probably the most compelling evidence of this lies in the comments of current and past members.

ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP

If your son were to join Delta Chi, he would initially become an Associate Member. During his involvement in the Associate Member program, which lasts approximately 10 weeks, he would attend weekly Chapter Meetings, meetings with his new member class, social exchanges with sororities and intramural and philanthropic events if he chooses. Delta Chi has a unique approach of mentorship for new members which helps associate members develop strong study habits and time management skills. We believe that it is essential that students develop disciplined study habits early in their college experience and consequently have mandatory study hours to establish a foundation for academic success. Special efforts would also be made to involve your son in fraternity activities and to ensure that he has opportunities to develop a new network of friends. We pride ourselves on being a fraternity known for the authenticity and friendliness of its members. Our approach to mentorship differentiates Delta Chi from other fraternities at the University of Iowa. During your son’s time as an associate member, he will be treated with respect as one of our own.

ACTIVE MEMBERSHIP

At the conclusion of the Associate Member period, your son will become initiated as an active member of the fraternity and will have the opportunity to play a leadership role in the day-to-day operations of Delta Chi. Leading a fraternity is like managing a small business, and there are many opportunities for personal development available to those who are willing to take the initiative.

We hope that your son enjoys his experience at the University of Iowa and that he will pursue the opportunities that Greek life provides. Please explore other areas of our website, and if you have questions regarding Delta Chi, I would be pleased to answer them.

Sincerely,

Nate Breckenridge | President
Delta Chi Fraternity, University of Iowa Chapter

PARENTS CLUB

The Delta Chi Parents Club is an informal network that provides a channel of communication between the Iowa Chapter of Delta Chi and members’ parents. Club events provide parents with the opportunity to meet their son’s fraternity brothers and their parents, and to learn more about the activities of the Iowa Chapter. An annual parents’ weekend is held in the spring and parents are encouraged to visit the house for special events in the fall (Homecoming and Family Weekend). In the past, the Parents Club has also contributed to the purchase of items such as place settings of silverware, new carpet and lounge furniture and have participated in house clean up and repair.

For more information, please talk to Nate Breckenridge, his info can be found on the contact page.
