Whether you are interested in becoming a member of the Greek community or not, the Fraternity of Phi Delta Theta has more to offer than you know. Whatever your interests, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere at Phi Delta Theta. We follow three simple principles that make us exemplary members of the community. These principles are friendship, sound learning, and moral rectitude.
Friendship can mean a lot of different things, depending on how it’s used. To us friendship is taken to the next level, creating a brotherhood that grows past college and lasts forever. The brotherhood of Phi Delta Theta extends beyond the Kettering chapter, as Phi Delts worldwide are always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need of help or just looking for a friend.
Sound learning, is another principle that Phi Delts live by. We came to college just like you, to expand our knowledge and continue our education. It makes no sense to join a Fraternity if you cannot focus on your education. At Phi Delta Theta, we put the education of our members and our friends as a top priority. If you are having trouble in any subject, there is a Phi Delt willing to help.
The third principle we follow is moral rectitude. One of our founding fathers, Robert Morrison, said it best: “To do what ought to be done but would not have been done unless I did it, I thought to be my duty.” This means being honorable and honest at all times, having a deep sense of responsibility towards one another, and looking out for every brother.
These three principles are the basis for being a Phi, but Phi Delts are much, much more. To get a good understanding of what it truly means to be a Phi, you will have to speak with one of our members. Our house is always open and welcoming of guests looking for more.
