Phi Delta Theta


The IL-Gamma chapter of Phi Delta Theta (Phi Delt) is the youngest fraternity on campus, though the national organization has a long, rich history. Phi Delta Theta was founded on December 26, 1848, at Miami University in Oxford, OH, by six undergraduate students who are collectively known as “The Immortal Six.” Phi Delta Theta was founded on the cultivation of friendship among its members, the acquirement individually of a high degree of mental culture, and the attainment personally of a high standard of morality.

They are a men’s leadership organization that believes in their three cardinal principles: Friendship, Sound Learning, and Moral Rectitude. Their motto is “become the greatest version of yourself”. Phi Delt is one of two fraternities on campus that employs substance-free (or “dry”) facilities.

Their philanthropy is the LiveLikeLou Foundation for ALS research (ALS is often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

The most popular fields of study among the men of Phi Delt are:
