Located in beautiful Santa Cruz, California, Delta Omega Chi Fraternity is Santa Cruz's premiere local fraternity. The brothers of Delta Omega Chi Fraternity have been serving the community since 1991 providing a fresh, new perspective on Greek life.
A decade ago, three men decided that the Greek organizations present in Santa Cruz did not posses the qualities and motives of an ideal fraternity. These three men embarked on a mission to establish a new brotherhood based on the values and ideals that other organizations lacked. Their effort was to create something not only for themselves, but for the numerous generations of men who would keep the newly born organization alive.
After many weeks of argument and planning, they agreed upon three Greek letters that best described the values that ideals that they considered to be of utmost purity and importance. These three letters are delta, omega and chi (ΔΩΧ). Their undying importance to the brotherhood is a monument to their symbolic omnipotence. These three characters provide an indispensable commonality between all active and alumni brothers of Delta Omega Chi.
The founders, aware of an inevitable prejudice from those outside the brotherhood, were careful not to exclude or isolate themselves from non-members. Any form of exclusion by race, age, culture or destiny was (and is) strictly avoided. They observed the growing sentiment against Greek organizations that had been growing stronger over the decades that preceded them. An attitude of open-mindedness and acceptance would provide a more effective shield against social prejudice and intolerance.
Due to the founders' great effort to provide a stable foundation for the fraternity, many years of strong pledge classes have followed in their steps. Each individual adds his unique essence and charisma into the organization. This allows the fraternity to grow and develop beyond the scope of what it initially began as. This is what separates Delta Omega Chi from many, if not all, other Greek organizations. This fraternity does not make individuals -- individuals make this fraternity.
