Phi Gamma Delta
Phi Gamma Delta
Located at 1540 Louisiana Street, our chapter has been promoting Friendship, Knowledge, Service, Morality, and Excellence since 1881. Our chapter prides itself on our involvement on campus, and development of courageous leaders. Thanks to our new renovations, our chapter house is now more spacious, fitted with greater room for both leisure and study. Thanks to our graduate donations our updates will continue with hallway and bathroom renovations this summer! "Not for college days alone" defines our relationship with our graduated brothers, as our members may graduate with a degree, but they are brothers for life.

On December 20, 1881, Glenn Lewis Miller, John Thomas Harlowe, John Dice McClaren, William Chase Stevens, and Samuel Thomas Seaton founded Pi Deuteron Chapter and created a bond more than 2,300 young men have experienced. Since our founding, Pi Deuteron has been one of the premier fraternities at KU and, from 1881 through today, our proud history speaks for itself through high academic achievement and leadership within the University. Pi Deuteron has influenced the lives of numerous young men, cultivating lasting friendships in the process.
While many of our graduates have gone on to successful and distinguished careers in business, engineering, technology, and countless other endeavors, the common bond of our brotherhood remains, along with our shared principles and values. Many of us place significant value on our Phi Gamma Delta membership, on the longtime friendships we made, on the development of our values and principles, and on the many ways FIJI enhanced our college years.

The Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta, also known as Fiji or Phi Gam, has 136 chapters and 14 colonies at the foremost colleges and universities of the United States and Canada.
Phi Gamma Delta offers much to our members through leadership development, educational programs, and lifelong friendships.
Whether you are a student on a campus, a parent or university administrator, this area will give you a sense of Phi Gamma Delta’s history, scope, and, most importantly, current opportunities and benefits.
Phi Gamma Delta is dedicated to developing men of character within the academic setting, with the aim that they will become fully contributing members of society. In pursuit of this mission, the Fraternity promotes five core values: Friendship, which brings us together and is the basis of our brotherhood. Knowledge, the primary reason our members attend college and the key to a fuller, richer life. Service, in recognition of our obligation to give back to the campus and community that foster our growth. Morality, our commitment to do what is right in all our relationships. Excellence, the achievement of the full potential of the chapter and the individual members.
Our Greek Letters
Members of Phi Gamma Delta hold our Greek letters in reverence.
Therefore, we limit their display to a select number of places, such as the front of the chapter house, the fraternity flag, class rings, and the member badge. When our Fraternity is named in campus or interfraternity publications, we prefer the full spelling of Phi Gamma Delta rather than use of the Greek letters or the nickname Fiji.
Located in the heart of the Bluegrass in Lexington, Kentucky, the Phi Gamma Delta International Headquarters includes office space for the 25 staff members of the Fraternity and the Phi Gamma Delta Educational Foundation, in addition to housing a museum, a library/boardroom, and a three-bedroom apartment.
The Headquarters operation was moved from Washington, DC, to Lexington in 1973, and was housed in leased office space for the next 12 years. The current International Headquarters building at 1201 Red Mile Road was completed and occupied in May 1985. Brothers, pledges, and family members are encouraged to visit the International Headquarters whenever visiting the area.
