Spring Recruitment Challenge Numbers Announced For Chapters and Emerging Chapters


This fall, Phi Delta Theta introduced “recruitment challenge numbers” for its chapters and emerging chapters to work towards as they recruited their Phikeia class. Coming off a challenging year that saw many recruitment barriers in place, Phi Delta Theta knew that a growth mindset throughout the 2021-22 academic year would be vital for success.

Nearly 47 percent of the Fraternity’s chapters and emerging chapters reached or surpassed their fall recruitment challenge number and will be eligible for the January 1 drawing of the fall challenge incentives. Overall, the Fraternity saw a 64 percent increase in fall new members compared to fall 2020. It also saw a 26 percent increase from its previous three-year average of fall new members, and a 16 percent increase from the two-year average prior to the pandemic.

Phi Delta Theta is now excited to unveil new recruitment challenge numbers for the second half of the year.

The spring recruitment challenge numbers below use chapter Phikeia class and campus data from the past three spring terms and consider campus recruitment structures. Chapters and emerging chapters that meet or exceed their spring recruitment challenge number from January 1 – June 30, 2022 will be entered to receive one of many available incentives.* Phikeias must be reported in myPhiDelt by June 30, 2022 to count towards this challenge.

* On July 1, Phi Delta Theta will enter all eligible chapters or emerging chapters into a drawing, and one group will be selected for each of the available incentives.

The collection of incentives include:

  • A $500 donation to a philanthropy event
  • A $1,000 credit toward future Phikeia dues
  • A $2,500 credit toward the chapter’s 2023 membership dues
  • Fall 2022 recruitment t-shirts for entire chapter via the Phi Delt Store
  • LiveLikeLou ONWARD long sleeve t-shirts for entire chapter
  • Phi Delta Theta polo shirts for the chapter’s executive committee via the Phi Delt Store
  • A 65″ TV for the chapter house
  • A custom recruitment banner
  • A custom recruitment table cover
  • Five $100 donations from the LiveLikeLou Foundation for chapter Iron Phi participants
