We Are Phi Delt: Colorado Gamma


As part of our We Are Phi Delt campaign, we asked chapters to give us an insight into what it’s like to be a Phi on their college campus. We understand that no chapter experience is the same, and therefore we should share the unique aspects of our schools, cities, and brotherhood!

Chapters can complete this form for custom We Are Phi Delt logos and an opportunity to be featured online.
