FIJI Facts

At the Omicron Deuteron Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta, we believe in the power of potential. We are not necessarily looking for men who have it “all figured out.” We value men who are striving to better themselves and those around them on a day-to-day basis. Our pledging process, which prides itself on anti-hazing policies and procedures, molds potential members into selfless, confident, and eager men through implementation of the fraternity’s core values.
