Phi Gamma Delta offers much to our members through leadership development, educational programs, and lifelong friendships. We say that Phi Gamma Delta is “not for college days alone.” Our Brothers may graduate from college, but they never graduate from Phi Gamma Delta. They carry with them lifelong friendships, skills and the experiences from their undergraduate years. In the below videos, alumni share their thoughts on what it means to be a FIJI and the positive impact it continues to have in their lives.
Applications must be turned in no later than August 1 st , 2017.
