Phi Delta Theta strongly believes in a period of education before initiation in order to familiarize new members with our fraternity and college life. This education period lasts approximately one semester.

A 2.75 GPA is required before being eligible for initiation. Pledges reside in the pledge dorms (located at our house) that include a common area with couches, TV, desks, closets, and sleeping areas. We believe this pledge experience will build a stronger bond by living together than if spread throughout the house.

The national Phi Delta Theta does not condone hazing. It is contrary to the purpose of Phi Delta Theta fraternity and the commitment of brotherhood. We work together and support each other.
