You’ve begun the greatest adventure of your entire life so far: college. Between going to one of the top universities academically, as well as one of the largest with over 35 thousand people, attending Berkeley may be daunting at times. That’s where having a group of California’s fifty brightest, most loyal, and hardest-partying brothers supporting you can be a true lifesaver.

Founded in 1900, the Theta Delta Chi Fraternity is one of Berkeley’s oldest brotherhoods consisting of the most diverse student body across campus. At our historic, ivy-covered house located across from Unit 1 on Durant and College, you’ll meet a collection of unique individuals who are engaged in every type of activity ranging from ASUC senators, rugby players, gamers, and even the occasional EDM producer. However you’ll find one common denominator between all these types of people: brotherhood.

The Theta Delta Chi Fraternity is a proud sponsor and supporter of the Autism Speaks program. Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

 

Every October, our brotherhood supports the cause by putting on our traditional haunted house and donating the proceeds to Autism Speaks. Along with being a great bonding experience, the haunted house is a main Berkeley attraction around Halloween, bringing in hundreds of people, and thousands of dollars each year.

Philanthropy plays an important, year round role for us. Along with the Haunted house, Theta Delta Chi brothers put on our Spring Flavor tripping events for Autism Speaks, as well as collectively participating in other Greek houses’ charity events such as a 3 v 3 basketball tournament with DG, a dance competition with Pi Phi, and a soccer tournament with ADPi.
