The oldest social fraternity on campus, the 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 philanthropic event Swingfest where they raise money for Holiday House.
