KSU Phi Delt Member Experience


The men of Phi Delta Theta share a commitment—to the intense bond of friendship between brothers, high academic achievement, and living life with integrity.

A Phi Delt has high expectations of, and for, himself and his brothers. He believes that one man is no man. He believes it is his personal challenge to “Go Far” in all that he does.

The Fraternity teaches men that these areas of commitment, outlined in The Bond of Phi Delta Theta, are not to be viewed as separate ideals, but as areas of discipline for daily life. Developments intellectually, in leadership, and in human service (to name a few) are vital to the Phi Delt man. Members of Phi Delta Theta will support, and in turn have the support of, his brothers as these principles are lived out.

Membership in Phi Delta Theta goes beyond belonging to a social organization. The men of Phi Delta Theta tell of the tremendous support that exists between brothers and how, during their college years, they developed self-confidence, leadership qualities, and a belief in the strength of their abilities. They believe their lifetime commitment to the Fraternity is one of the most important commitments they ever made.

“…our fraternity gave me the discipline, infrastructure, memories, and most of all friends and network needed to succeed not only in college but in my journey through life is something I will always enjoy.
