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 by the late dean E.P. Puckett. Dean E.P. founded the Atom Club to promote social activities on campus, and the Chi Delts work to keep his ideals alive and go one step further by creating and enhancing a feeling of brotherhood among the members of Chi Delta 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.
