Comments (primary residence)

"TDC is a place where people are encouraged to be individuals. We are open about our personal matters because of the mutual respect amongst brothers. I have never heard of an incident where any brother or guest has been teased or harassed because of their sexual orientation, and as a house we would not tolerate it from anyone."

"I can't speak to the culture of other fraternities or living groups, but I can speak to the fact that since I was a freshman the brothers of TDC have always promoted a very open and non-judging environment. It truly is a place where no one needs to be afraid of being themselves and also serves as an opportunity to expand your outlook on the world. Coming in as a freshman, I rarely had any interaction with individuals who are LGBTQ. Not because I was uncomfortable, but simply because I come from a more conservative culture. Now, I've grown to know and love all of my brothers, regardless of their sexual orientation. Living in this house, in this kind of open and accepting environment, is something I will carry with me for the rest of my life."

"I've been proud to call Theta Delta Chi my home since I joined as a freshman in 2007. I've always had a safe space on campus here at the house. "
