Phi Gamma Delta, more commonly known as FIJI, was first founded in 1848 at Jefferson College, in Cannonsberg, Pennsylvania with 6 original founders. With common ambitions and goals in mind, they started their search for quality men with distinguished attributes and a great ambition to honor and improve this fraternity. From these original ideas, more than 130 undergraduate chapters and colonies have taken roots all over the United States and Canada.
The Chi Deuteron Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta was founded in 1968 with 24 original members, and has since expanded to more than 600 graduate and undergraduate members. Among the members living in the house, many different geographic locations are represented from not only Kansas, but all over the United States.
The benefits of membership in Phi Gamma Delta are far too vast to be contained within a single paragraph, but can be observed by a sentence every brother takes to heart, “Not for college days alone.” The friendships built, and the brotherhood that lives within will remain with you for the rest of your days. Among many campus’s you will hear the term “alumni” used to describe those who were once a part of an organization, and have since graduated. We use the term “Graduate Brother” because though they may no longer be in college, a FIJI is a brother for life.
