Helping every individual to meet his true potential is the bedrock of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. By celebrating each person’s true self, and by learning from each other’s strengths while helping to improve each other’s weaknesses, every member of Phi Delta Theta develops into a greater version of himself than he could ever on his own. Rather than try to find young men to “mold” into some ideal, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empower every brother to exceed his personal expectations.
Phi Delta Theta’s goal is to be the premier fraternal leadership organization in the world. We want those who enjoy leading to join our organization, and we are committed to furthering each member’s leadership potential. Alongside each member are brothers who become an instant family at college; a family that encourages, guides, and supports each other through the ups and downs of life.
Most students fear joining a fraternity will harm their reputation, grades, and college experience. However, our student leadership organization focuses on academic success, fostering brotherhood, helping our community, and becoming the greatest version of yourself. Our goal in recruitment is to find motivated, hard-working, and like-minded individuals to continue to foster our brotherhood's success.
Once the decision has been made to say “Yes!,” to Phi Delta Theta, the new member begins to truly get to know the Fraternity and the Fraternity truly gets to know him. The Phikeia experience is filled with positive and encouraging preparation for the responsibilities of membership that reaffirms the principles of Phi Delta Theta. After the Phikiea Education program, if both party's values and expectations are in sync, Phikeias become initiated into full membership – and that's where the real journey of a lifetime begins.
