Phi Gamma Delta is dedicated to developing men of character within the academic setting, with the aim that they will become fully contributing members of society. In pursuit of this mission, the Fraternity promotes five core values:
Friendship, which brings us together and is the basis of our brotherhood.
Knowledge, the primary reason our members attend college and the key to a fuller, richer life.
Service, in recognition of our obligation to give back to the campus and community that foster our growth.
Morality, our commitment to do what is right in all our relationships.
Excellence, the achievement of the full potential of the chapter and the individual members.

The Phi Gamma Delta Priorities:
SCHOLARSHIP t FRATERNITY t SELF
The Fraternity has teamed with Dr. Kenneth Blanchard, fellow Phi Gam and author of The One Minute Manager, to develop a cutting-edge leadership development program called Taking the Lead. This four-part program uses a bottom-up approach to develop leaders throughout their college years.
The Fraternity encourages and enhances academic performance through tutoring and study skills education. Our chapters consistently out-perform the All-Men’s and All-Fraternity averages.
The Fraternity’s Educational Foundation offers over $340,000 in scholarships, which members can apply for right away. All men who achieve a 3.0 or better during their pledge semester will receive $500!
Phi Gamma Delta strives to be competitive in intramural sports.
Graduate brothers offer real-world education in a variety of career fields; some will offer internships and employment networking.
The Fraternity places a VERY strong emphasis on serving others. Philanthropic projects are a major focus of activity for Phi Gamma Delta. Phi Gamma Delta’s International Philanthropy is The Red Cross.
Phi Gamma Delta feels a chapter house provides an added benefit to the fraternity experience, and we are pleased that nearly 90% of our chapters live in some form of Greek housing. All new Fiji houses are alcohol-free facilities; this promotes academic excellence in a clean environment.
The semi-annual magazine entitled “The Phi Gamma Delta” is sent to brothers to update them on the activities of the Fraternity on an International scale.
No matter where you go, Phi Gamma Delta has chapters across the U.S. and Canada. You will enjoy the advantages of brotherhood throughout your lifetime. Phi Gamma Delta is truly “Not For College Days Alone.”
