Initially called Illinois Alpha, Delta Chapter was established at Illinois Wesleyan in 1875. Enrollment dropped at the college and — in 1895 — the chapter closed and the charter was transferred to a new group established at the University of Illinois. Delta became the first women's fraternity on the Illinois campus.
