Founded at Union College in 1847, by six men who met to discuss friendship as a power and establish the ties, which now extend to all our TDX brothers. We are the eleventh oldest of college fraternities, giving us a certain sense of history and tradition. Established at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1895.

Theta Delta Chi is extremely involved at UW-Madison. Every year we actively participate in University-sponsored events, such as Homecoming, Trick-or Treat with the Greeks, Greek Week, all Greek philanthropies, and a number of different intramural sports. We also sponsor our own philanthropy, Chowdown Against Cancer, a brat eating contest held on Library Mall in Late April. All proceeds going to the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Each member of Theta Delta Chi is also required to give eight hours of community service per semester. In addition to school activities, we have many social functions including a few formals each year, many social gatherings at the house throughout the year and multiple events with sororities.
We are actively seeking fun and out going guys who are looking to make the most of their college careers. Rush is officially in the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, but we are always looking for new member year round. Rush schedules will be around campus or anyone is welcome to stop by the house to pick one up or just hang out.
We have a firm belief that in addition to education, the everlasting friendships and bonds you are able to form are an important part of college. We have strong alumni relations and many guys who continue their friendships after college. Theta Delta Chi is a great place to make those friends and have a good time. Many members even find themselves with an increase in GPA after moving into the house with the help they are able to receive from older brothers who are willing to take time to show them better study habits or understand the material. Many people will find benefits and friends in the fraternity life they didn’t think they would. So just stop by some of our events and see what we are all about.
After pledging, each initiate will be required to pay a one time $450 initiation fee. Each subsequent semester in which the member lives out of the house will cost $375 in membership dues. While living in the house, there are no membership fees.
The Best Description of Our Members:
We’re not all scholars. We’re not all athletes. We’re not all partiers. We’re not all the same. But, we’re all brothers.
