1965 TROY STATE COLLEGE DELTA CHI COLONIZATION PLAN.
All Troy Delta Chi Brothers know our Chapter was chartered April 2, 1966. At that time we were one of only three Active chapters in the State of Alabama, behind Alabama (1927) and Auburn (1951).
What most of us don’t know is the history of our chapter started over a year earlier in January 1965, when Delta Chi National, wanting to expand its base, came to Troy to form a colony of young men in hopes of growing it into a Nationally Chartered Chapter. Let’s go back 50 years and revisit these events that later changed all our lives.

The Troy State Chapter was founded on April 2, 1966. We give credit to seven men, who are referred to as “The Mag Seven”. Those men are as follows: King Bond, Jr., Arthur Bryan, Jack Corbitt Jr., Don Drasheff, Winston Griggs, Max Metcalf, and Tommy Nichols.
After graduation, the brothers of the TROY State Chapter have gone on to do great things! Some Examples are: Baldwin County AL. Circuit Judge, CEO of Kelley Foods, Troy University Board of Trustee Members, PGA Golf Professional, Directors of the “Sound of the South”, Alabama house of Representatives, College and University Presidents, Professional Baseball Players.
Our alumni have always been heavily involved in the Armed Forces from the days of the Vietnam War to the current War on Terrorism. All branches of the armed forces have Delta Chi alumni from TROY. We have former F-16, B-52, and C-130 pilots, along with many serving in officer roles. We have retired Colonels from the United States Army, Drill Instructors from the Marine Corps, and a retired Captain from the United States Navy.
