The oldest social fraternity on campus, the Southern Gentlemen of Chi Delta trace their roots back to the founding of the Atom Club in 1931. Dean E.P. Puckett founded the Atom Club to promote social activities on campus, and the Chi Delts work to keep his ideals alive. Their primary goal is to create and enhance a feeling of brotherhood among their own members and the student body as a whole.
The Chi Delts are best known for their two biggest philanthropic events: Swingfest in the fall, and Greek Goddess in the spring.
