Theta Delta Chi History

In a plainly furnished back room of Union College (in the building then known as West College, a simple stone structure occupying the center of a square fronting Union Street, Schenectady, just south of the Central Railroad bridge over the Erie Canal) a party of six men met one May evening, and having quietly among themselves discussed friendship as a power, formed our fraternity, the ties of which now extend throughout all countries and climates.

Theta Delta Chi lays claim to many firsts. FlagOne in particular was the first Greek-letter society to have a flag. It was first flown from the Astor House in New York in February of 1870 at the 23rd Convention. Its colors black, white and blue symbolize secrecy, purity, and loyalty.
