Phi Delta Theta
Phi Delta Theta was built on three pillars that have not changed since the Fraternity was founded in 1848 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Those three pillars include friendship, sound learning and rectitude.
Helping every individual to meet his true potential is the bedrock of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. By celebrating each person’s true self, and by learning from each other’s strengths while helping to improve each other’s weaknesses, every member of Phi Delta Theta develops into a greater version of himself than he could ever on his own. Rather than try to find young men to “mold” into some ideal, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empower every brother to exceed his personal expectations.
Whitman College’s Washington Beta chapter of Phi Delta Theta was founded on campus in 1915.
