Brotherhood Activities:
Delta Chi has many chapter activities to further build our bonds of brotherhood. Brotherhood is an important part of being a member of a fraternity. Some of our annual brotherhood activities include, taking a trip up to Spokane to catch a Chiefs hockey game, an inter-house softball tournament & BBQ, camping trips, and carpooling to Boise to attend the UI vs. Boise State Football game.

Academic/Scholarship Activities:
Our academics are extremely important to us and we hold ourselves to a high academic standard. We strive to do well and achieve our academic goals. We have a chapter study program that has work very well over the years. We also reward our members at our scholarship dinner we have every semester. Our chapter also gives out academic scholarships every spring.

Philanthropic/Community Service Projects:

Our members are very involved throughout the community. Such projects include, highway clean-up, sponsoring and volunteering at blood drives, and carving pumpkins at local elementary schools. Our two house sponsored philanthropies are “Bowling for Breast Cancer” to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Fall Harvest in partnership with Opportunities Unlimited Inc. These are some events members participate in. We also support and participate in the sorority philanthropies.

Social/Campus Activities:

Being part of a fraternity gives a person a social outlet and an opportunity to get involved on campus. We host annual social events such as, the Pledge Dance, a Raft trip, our Winter Formal, a Polyester Wedding exchange, Sand Volleyball tournament, and the annual spring Pirate's Dance. We are also involved in Homecoming and Greek Week competitions, and we are volunteers for Vandal Friday.
