Headquartered in Lexington, Ky., Phi Gamma Delta was founded in 1848 at Jefferson College (now Washington & Jefferson College) in Canonsburg, Pa., on the values of friendship, knowledge, service, morality and excellence. Nearly 180,000 initiated brothers since 1848. Currently, the Fraternity has approximately 9,000 undergraduate brothers in 139 chapters and 16 Delta Colonies in the United States and Canada. Our nickname is "FIJI" due to our bylaws that limits the use of our Greek letters.
Phi Gamma Delta offers outstanding opportunities for college students. It seeks to maximize the college experience of its members through academic assistance, leadership development, community service and gentlemanly conduct. Primary emphasis is placed on scholarship and the development of the individual, and as a result, the fraternity seeks to complement the mission of University of Montevallo. Phi Gamma Delta is a non-hazing fraternity. New members complete a progressive education period and have immediate leadership responsibilities and decision-making opportunities within the organization.
Since 1848, more than 150,000 college men have become members of Phi Gamma Delta. Phi Gamma Delta was also an early leader among national fraternities in the movement to implement alcohol-free housing for its chapters.
