What makes Phi Delta Theta great?
“Our people. We all come from drastically different places and join for different reasons, but eventually, we all buy into the ideals and standards set forth by our Founders. This organization allows its members to submerge themselves into life with those of differing viewpoints, opinions, and beliefs, and helps them become more compassionate and understanding in the process.”Zach HIlliard
