A Piece of Advice
“Our Fraternity is an incredible lifelong journey, and it has helped me become a better man. What you put into Phi Delta Theta is definitely what you will get out of it, but be careful not to limit yourself to just the Fraternity, particularly during your college years. Get involved in other activities while you are in school. It will broaden your experiences that, in the long run, will enhance both your personal and professional life and will bring back tremendous value to the Fraternity.”
