Here’s how Delta Chi impacted my life

Delta Chi is the place where we had a lot of firsts. It’s the place where we first ventured out of our hometowns, the first place we bonded to on campus, and the place where we first learned the true meaning of friendship and how to be real men. Read on to see what your brothers said on how Delta Chi impacted their lives.

“My first road-trip as a pledge was when Dan Springer ‘81 and I drove to Rural Retreat Virginia to pick up our chef, John Russell, and all of his garden produce. JR had never driven in his life, and he was a wonderful steadying influence on ‘you boys,’” Scott Walls ’83 said.

Mark Dunning ’84 remembers that Delta Chi was known during his time at Michigan for “academics, down-to-earth brothers, and really good cooking, thanks to Chef John Russell.” He now looks back on his fraternity experience as a source of “camaraderie and mutual support throughout our lives.”

“The camaraderie of the fraternity brothers and contact with brothers so many years later gave me the incentive to help raise money so that those that follow can have a lifetime experience just as I had,” Keith Hellems ’62 said.
