Phi Delta Theta

Phi Delta Theta was founded in 1848 at the University of Miami in Ohio. Its three principles are: friendship, sound learning and moral rectitude. Ripon College’s chapter is one of more than 158 active chapters in the United States and Canada. Phi Delta Theta enjoys a long and colorful history, and its members have achieved some of the highest military honors, awards and offices including the president of the United States, in the person of Benjamin Harrison.

The Phi Delts at Ripon are involved in many different organizations on campus, with members in all levels of leadership. Each fall, their philanthropic efforts have educated Ripon College students about the dangers of fire in the residence halls with their Fire Safety programs. By working with the local fire department, brothers have raised money and awareness for such a “hot” issue. Along with the 6,500 other undergraduate members around the world, the Phi Delta Thetas work to uphold the founding principles set forth more than 150 years ago.
