Common Questions

Choosing whether or not to RUSH is probably the biggest decision a college man will ever make, and choosing the right fraternity may seem even tougher.  The men of Phi Delta Theta on the campus of  Missouri State University believe the choice is simple.  Phi Delta Theta is the best Fraternity at MSU, and we prove it semester after semester – year after year. We have walked away with the highest Greek GPA 24 times, Organization of the Year, Greek Week Champions, Greek Sports Champions, and the first chapter at MSU to have a 3.0 chapter GPA. We have been awarded The Founders Trophy (best overall Phi Delt Chapter in the US & Canada) 3 times, The Gold Star Award (excellence in campus involvement and fraternity business), as well as numerous community service and scholarship awards from the Phi Delta Theta General Headquarters.  During the ’95-’96 school year, we became the first  fraternity in the state of Missouri to win the Triple Crown Trophy (presented to fraternities who win campus sports, grades, and Greek Week in the same year).

Phi Delta Theta Anti-Hazing Policy

No chapter or member of Phi Delta Theta shall indulge in any physical abuse or undignified treatment (hazing).  Hazing is defined as: “any action taken or situation created, intentionally or unintentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, and whether with or without the consent of the persons subjected to the action, which produces mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule.”

Is there a lot of alcoholism in fraternities?

There are some fraternities at MSU that are officially dry and have a rule that no alcohol is allowed in the house. This is Phi Delta Theta’s view on alcohol. Phi Delta Theta does not emphasize alcohol and although we have many social events, prospective members should consider all aspects of our fraternity before joining.

Do pledges get hazed?

There is a university-wide policy on hazing. It says that it will not be tolerated to abuse physically, emotionally, or psychologically anybody pledging a Greek organization. We respect our pledges and encourage them to talk to us about concerns.

How important are Academics?

Fraternities are ranked based on the average chapter GPA in a single semester, so everything is constantly changing. Phi Delta Theta always tries to achieve the highest grade ranking on campus. Older members of the chapter can help younger members decide on what classes to take and which teachers are good.

How is the housing situation?

After becoming active in the chapter, the fraternity requires a one year stay in the chapter house. While not required, most members choose to move in their first or second active semester. Our house can hold 27 members in a variety of 1, 2, and 3 man rooms.
