Would you like to create your own traditions and build an organization that appeals to your unique interests? Do you want to make friendships that will last your lifetime? Do you want to develop leadership skills that will help you in your college career and beyond? If you do, then look no further than Phi Delta Theta.

Phi Delta Theta is an international men's fraternity of 173 chapters across the US and Canada. It is 154 years old, founded in 1848 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. It is based on the principles of friendship, sound learning and moral rectitude. Phis (or Phi Delts) take these principles seriously. We are known for our emphasis on academic achievement, our dedication to integrity, our focus on community service and our belief in brotherhood.

Neil Armstrong, Lou Gehrig, Burt Reynolds, Frank Lloyd Wright and Former Secretary of State James Baker are among the fraternity's famous alumni. They all benefited from the personal development Phi Delta Theta offered them. At Creighton, Phi Delts have held or currently hold many leadership positions, including Student Body President, CSU Vice Presidents, Alpha Sigma Nu Jesuit honors fraternity President, and ARDs of Residence Halls. Every member of Phi Delta Theta is involved in another organization on campus or in the community.

Phi Delta Theta has won many prestigious awards, including the Kansas City Trophy. This is an award presented annually to the best middle-sized chapter of Phi Delta Theta in the country. Our chapter, Nebraska-Gamma, has won this award the last three years in a row, the first chapter to accomplish this feat in the history of Phi Delta Theta. We have also won the Outstanding Chapter award on Creighton's campus four years in a row (tied for first place with Sigma Phi Epsilon 2001).

If you want to make the most of your college experience, meet new friends and learn to tap your potential as a leader and a student, then consider joining Phi Delta Theta, the Standard for Brotherhood.
