Castle tower

Welcome!

Delta Chi of ΔΚΕ has been a leader at Cornell since 1870. During that time, we built and operated our Grey Stone Castle and a strong alumni network. We are now in the midst of restarting the chapter, initiated 27 brothers, and continue to welcome more members. We seek men who are gentlemen, scholars, and jolly good fellows. Our undergraduates and alumni are working together to build an internal culture and programs that are relevant to the current brothers' interests but also reflect and carry on ΔΚΕ's traditions and values. We welcome the continued involvement of our alumni to mentor our new brothers and their elected officers as we transition back to living, dining, and operating in our Grey Stone Castle.

You Can Help

First: if you know of any current Cornell students interested in joining a fraternity or of any transfer or freshmen starting at Cornell this fall, please let us know.

Second: if you have not already supported us in 2018, please pay your class dues. Your dues pay for our recruiting expenses and the costs of restarting the chapter. Please visit our donation page. We invite you to join the John De Witt Warner Society by agreeing to make your annual dues as a recurring charge on your credit card.

Third: please consider volunteering to be an alumni mentor. Normally, we would have an undergraduate brother serve in the “big brother” role to help our pledges learn their way around ΔΚΕ and to provide wise counsel in finding their way around the hill. Because we do not have any active undergraduate members, we are looking for alumni to fill these roles. In addition, we want alumni to come to campus for a pledge-day dinner in January and a retreat at Glenora in April 2018 to facilitate the undergraduate elections. We asked for volunteers this past fall, and if you volunteered then, you are on our list. But if you have not volunteered yet, please email bob@racepacket.com.

Celebrating Our Return to the Hill

We celebrated our return to the hill with events in Aurora, New York; New York City; Washington, DC; Reunion in Ithaca; and Hummelstown, Pennsylvania.
