FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS RHO DELTA CHI?
Rho Delta Chi is an Asian Interest, but not Asian exclusive, sorority. We are an organization that welcomes those who want to join a sisterhood of a lifetime. Our sorority focuses on four pillars: Scholastics, Service, Sisterhood, and Social.
WHY RHO DELTA CHI?
Rho Delta Chi is a rapidly expanding sorority. Because of this, you have the power to help influence and shape what Rho Delta Chi can stand for at your campus.
There are various benefits in joining Rho Delta Chi. Joining Rho can allow one to enhance their college experience. We have extensive active and alumnae networking. This allows one to not only expand their professional networking, but their social networking as well. Every chapter has an academic chair and older sisters who are always willing to tutor. These girls have taken courses that you may be just starting and understand how the professors and classes work. Also by being in the sorority, sisters watch out for each other and this includes holding each other accountable for things such as studying enough and turning in assignments on time. You will also meet and have to work with a diverse group of women. Rho Delta Chi provides leadership opportunities where you have the freedom to express and do things in order to help better your school and community. By challenging yourself to adapt and learn how to work with others, you can gain personal growth and leadership skills that will help you more than just in your future endeavors. And finally, you gain lifelong friends who will always be there at your side. They are your sisters who will have watched you've grown during your college years, stood by you when you thought life was falling a part, and will be by you when you celebrate future life milestones.
DO I HAVE TO BE ASIAN TO JOIN?
No you do not have to be Asian to join! Rho Delta Chi welcomes anyone from any background. We also pride ourselves on diversity and do not discriminate against one's ethnicity, race, national origin, age, gender, or sexual orientation. What makes Rho Delta Chi unique is our members. Every sister contributes her individuality and spirit to the sorority.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Every chapter of Rho Delta Chi hosts a recruitment period during the beginning of each school semester. Recruitment may also be called "rush." Different schools begin semesters at different times so recruitment can be a different time for every chapter. Recruitment is usually one-two weeks long. During this time, the sisters host a variety of events from an educational informational explaining about Rho Delta Chi in detail to fun social events where you can participate in activities and make new friends. Once recruitment is over and you have met certain requirements for the chapter you want join such as GPA, attending a certain amount of rush events, etc., you may be extended an interview and bid. A bid is an invitation to join the sorority.
WHAT IF RHO DELTA CHI IS NOT ON MY CAMPUS?
If Rho Delta Chi is not on your campus, don't worry! We are actively working on expanding our sorority and if you would like Rho Delta Chi to be on your campus, you can become a part of that process. Please click on our expansion page to find out what you can do in order to start a chapter at your school.
WHAT DOES A NEW MEMBER HAVE TO GO THROUGH?
After the recruitment period is over and a new member had accepted their bid, they will go through a trial period on becoming a member of the sorority. This trial period allows the new member to learn more about Rho Delta Chi and its sisters without putting any active obligation. During this time, we hope that new members will develop a desire to support Rho Delta Chi's purpose and want to cross into the sorority.
