Parents Guide

Parent engagement is an integral component of chapter success. Phi Delta Theta encourages parents to ask many questions as their son considers membership and be engaged with their son's fraternity experience if he joins. The Fraternity encourages its chapters to establish local Parents Clubs and plan opportunities for the parents of its members to interact in-person throughout the academic year.

Parents, you're going to love us.

Alcohol-free housing. Zero hazing policy. Let's face it, putting those two descriptors out there right off the bat tends to alleviate the majority of concerns parents have about allowing their son to join a fraternity. But the absence of negative influences is only a small part of the reason why parents love Phi Delta Theta. Phi Delts create a positive and encouraging "living laboratory" that empowers each brother to tap into his inner greatness and reach a higher potential than he could on his own.

On the top of a parent's expectation for their son is academic performance. Excellence in academics is our top priority too. In fact, our commitment to academics begins at the recruitment stage by talking to young men with GPAs high above the campus average. And once these intelligent men are in the house, we make sure they have an environment conducive to studying and learning. And to keep everyone on track, each chapter has a scholarship chairman that overseas and maintains scholastic integrity.

Parents like that we instill in every brother the concept of accountability for every action. We are a values-based organization – chances are, the same type of values taught to their son at home – that emphasizes academic achievement, community service and an enriched and highly rewarding overall college experience filled with friendships that will last a lifetime.
