The Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta was founded on May 1, 1848 at Jefferson College in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. The founders of this brotherhood, known as the immortal six, sought men with honor and ambition to help spread the name and values of the fraternity. Today, Phi Gamma Delta has taken on the nickname FIJI, but the promotion of friendship spanning beyond the days of college alone, strong values, and the pursuit of excellence has remained the same. Just as it was over 150 years ago, Phi Gamma Delta is committed to providing the opportunities for brothers to develop responsibility, leadership, scholastic, and social skills.
Our Omicron Deuteron chapter at The Ohio State University was founded in 1878 and was the first fraternity on campus. Our chapter continues to exemplify our founders’ five values in our every day lives. Our brothers are heavily involved in service throughout the greater Columbus area; some of which include The Columbus Cancer Clinic, BuckeyeThon, Pelotonia, Camp Kessem, The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, The Mid Ohio Food Bank, as well as many other organizations. Our chapter prides itself on maintaining academic excellence as evidence by being ranked second in the Interfraternity Council for academics in Spring 2015. Omicron Deuteron also has shown great success in other areas of the Greek Community as well by being recognized over the last three years for outstanding philanthropy and member development programs and being named Chapter of the Year in 2008.
