The Brothers of Theta Chi in front of their Fraternity House

Meet the Delta Alpha chapter of Theta Chi, established here at Linfield in 1949. Theta Chi was first founded on April 10th, 1856 at Norwich University. Theta Chi alumni are deeply rooted in the Linfield and McMinnville communities. Their brothers are athletic, driven, and leadership oriented. They are involved in Linfield athletics, intramurals, student government, campus radio and sports broadcasting, and various clubs. Theta Chi values the promotion of knowledge, advancing of culture, building of character, and the lost art of chivalry. Their main philanthropy event is GI Theta Chi week of philanthropy benefiting USO, in which they paired with the sisters of Alpha Phi. Theta Chi also donates to Yamhill County Food Bank and Salvation Army, and participates in a Lincoln City beach clean up with Phi Sigma Sigma. Last year the brothers participated in a 21 means 21 campaign promoting safe decision-making. Theta Chi brothers demonstrate a “Sacred Purpose” by extending a helping hand to all who seek it in the Linfield and McMinnville community.  They also went on a brotherhood spring break trip to Lake Havasu, Arizona. Theta Chi fraternity is a cornucopia of information, knowledge, and fun. They invite you to come to the house to learn about the brothers, your school, and yourself.
