What Makes Phi Delta Theta Great?

When you join a Phi Delt chapter at your university you’re proud to be a Phi because of the brothers that recruited you into the chapter, what they represent and their reputation on campus. What most people don’t realize (at least right away) is why they should be proud to be a Phi beyond their campus. They, like the hundreds of thousands of other Phis before them, inherit an organization that has a strong reputation for bold leadership, innovative thinking and an experience that has truly made good men great. This experience allows men to exceed their individual potential and in turn enhance our great Fraternity.
