Phi Delta Theta

Phi Delta Theta  was founded in 1848 at Miami University. They are based in three pillars that have not changed since their founding. The pillars are: 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. Shortened, they refer to the principles as friendship, sound learning and rectitude.

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, they celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empower every brother to exceed his personal expectations.

Phi Delta Theta first came to Georgia Southern in 1970. Since that time, hundreds of Brothers have added their name to Phi Delta Theta’s Bond and continued the long history of giving back to Georgia Southern University and the greater Statesboro area.  After a short hiatus, a group of determined men who shared in our Founders principles reestablished Phi Delt on Campus at the end of Spring of 2015 and successfully rechartered the Chapter in Spring of 2016. Now, they are one of the fastest growing chapters on campus and have plans to bring all that Georgia Southern has known back again.
