CHAPTER HISTORY...

Founded February 23rd, 1952...

Established on Feburary 23rd, 1952, the Delta Chi Chapter has grown into a role of dominance at the University of Nebraska-Omaha’s Greek System. The Delta Chi chapter is committed to forming a lasting brotherhood that will achieve professional, academic, and social success.

This chapter has consistently shown its merit by winning a total of 10 International Robert Adger Smythe Awards, which is the highest honor any chapter in the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity can receive. The Delta Chi Chapter currently has won seven Smythe awards in a row, making our chapter a Dynasty level chapter and is working for its 8th in a row. The Delta Chi Chapter also won the 2018-19 Orians Excellence Chapter Award, 2018-19 Scholarship Plate, and 5 other internationally recognized awards for the 2019 year. Other awards include numerous Sports Cups, Grades Cups, and Greek Week and Homecoming Spirit Cups.

In the late Spring of 2017, the men of the Delta Chi chapter had the honor of special initiating Derrin Hansen, current head basketball coach for UNO. We hope to further our chapter by continuing to special initiate other administration and coaches that represent what a Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity man should be.

The Pi Kappa Alpha "Oak" was written by Dr. Jerome V. Reel Jr. in 1986. "The Oak" holds the history and values of the fraternity that made the foundation of what Pi Kappa Alpha is today.

An interesting fact about "The Oak" was that it was dedicated towards one of our past members and brothers, Pat Halloran. He was an excellent example of what a Pike should be with the success that has followed him.

 

Without "The Oak", our brothers would lose sight of the mission and vision of the Pi Kappa Alpha founders that created this fraternity on Sunday evening, March 1st, 1868 at the University of Virginia in 47 West Range.

The Pi Kappa Alpha - Delta Chi chapter has had a lot of participation in the International Fraternity with having International Presidents, Executive Directors, Directors, and a multitude of National Consultants. We work to develop our members beyond school and this is one of those ways.
