Delta Xi was originally chartered on April 10, 1976 in Commerce,
The chapter was founded by brothers initiated in Theta Theta
chapter (ETSU) who had graduated, but were still in the area
attending graduate school and wanting to remain active in Omega.
Bro. David Talbot was the first Basileus,
The chapter was very active during this period. Membership
increased as 5 other men were initiated into Omega through Delta
As brothers left graduate school and went into the world of
work, most in different directions away from Commerce, activity
in the chapter dwindled. In an attempt to maintain the chapter
and remain financial, the chapter continued to have one annual
meeting to sustain Delta Xi. The meeting took place in Athens,
Tx. on June Teenth. Eventually the chapter became inactive.
In 1987 a new brother moved to Greenville and determined that
the area needed the positive influence of Omega. After meeting
several other frats in the area, a plan was formulated to get
a chapter in the area. After the existence of Delta Xi was discovered,
the brothers decided to reactivate the charter. After several
rounds of correspondence with district and north Texas officials,
on Nov. 1, 1989, Delta Xi was officially reactivated for Greenville
and Commerce with Bro. Robert Woodson as the latest Basileus.
Since that time, the chapter has reclaimed brothers from Rowlett
The chapter has expanded with the initiation of three brothers
in May 1993, and one brother in April 1994.
Since reactivation the chapter has participated in numerous
community uplift activities including a tutorial program, scholarship
awards, community and civic leadership. The chapter has also
made a name for itself on the local, district, and international
level by being small in number, but great in deed.
