Make a Chapter Active Again
Five Chapters of Delta Sigma Chi currently are active at five of the Chiropractic Colleges & Universities. There are many advantages of having a chapter available as a student. The definition of “Who We Are” and "Where We Are Going” is on the home page of our website as the Mission and Values of our organization.
Brothers of Delta Sigma Chi have been in leadership positions in chiropractic since 1913. Brotherhood will be a lifetime bond you will share throughout your entire career. Be a part of something bigger than any of us can individually, create a chapter of Delta Sigma Chi.
