The founding mothers of the alpha chapter chose the Greek letters ΡΔΧ in hopes of bringing harmony among all ethnicities. This also represents the symbolic representation of PAX which means "peace" in Latin.
Sorority chants are used at meetings, social events, public events, and step shows. Different sororities and fraternities create chants as a response to their organizations being called in a roll call of attending sorority and fraternity events. The national Rho Chant is as follows:
Who are we?
- Rho D.
- Delta Chi
This sorority chant was drafted at the 2012 Rho Delta Chi National Convention through the collaboration of the Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Epsilon chapter. Although the national Rho Chant is used by every chapter, shorter variations may exist among individual chapters
In the year of 2016, Rho Delta Chi established a national philanthropy. Rho Delta Chi's national philanthropy is partnered with the American Lung Association (ALA).
Rho Delta Chi currently has six chapters and one colony. Active chapters are indicated in bold, inactive chapters in italics.
