Delta Chi Delta Alumnae Association
∆X∆ Delta Chi Delta Alumnae Association was established during the sorority’s 10th Anniversary year in 1949. On March 10, 1993, we were officially chartered as an alumni organization by the Hofstra University Alumni Organization.
Our purpose is to provide an ongoing social and cultural environment for the sisters of Delta Chi Delta Sorority and to form a liaison that provides educational and financial aid to sisters attending Hofstra University.
On Monday, November 7, 2011, Delta Chi Delta Alumnae Association inducted a new E-Board during a small ceremony at Hofstra University’s Libby and Joseph G. Shapiro Alumni House.

We encourage you to update your contact information so we can communicate upcoming events easily and at a lower cost. If we lessen the cost of newsletter mailings, we can award scholarships in greater amounts. If you wish to provide us with your email address, please contact Geri DeRosa.
Every year, we plan to award an endowed scholarship to provide financial assistance to Delta Chi Delta sisters attending Hofstra University or a family member of Delta Chi Delta alumnae (both undergraduate and graduate students).
You are eligible for membership in the Delta Chi Delta Alumnae Association if you were successfully initiated into Delta Chi Delta Sorority during your undergraduate studies at Hofstra University and fulfilled at least two semesters as an active sister of Delta Chi Delta. Membership contributions remain at $25 per person, and are currently being collected for the 2012 fiscal year. The 2012 fiscal year runs from September 1, 2011, to August 31, 2012.

- Contributions allow us to award financial aid in the form of a scholarship to sisters and any relative of a DXD alumna attending Hofstra University.
- It allows us to organize social events and communicate them to our alumnae base.
- Membership contributions are fully tax-deductible.
