ABOUT US


California Psi Chapter: Loyola Marymount University



History

Phi Delta Theta is an international fraternity that was established on December 26, 1848 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. With more than 200,000 initiated members across the world, Phi Deta Theta extends for more than 170 chapters in 44 states in the U.S. and 6 provinces in Canada. Many Phis have become business CEOs, professional athletes, government leaders, and scientists, and make up an organization that strives for greatness in every filed of endeavor.

LMU: California Psi

In the Spring of 2014, Phi Delta Theta colonized the California Psi Chapter at Loyola Marymount University as the largest colony in the Fraternity's history, and inducted the chapter's first founding fathers. The chapter received its charter soon after in the Fall of 2015. Since then, the chapter has seen tremendous progress, with the quality and calibur of each new member class rising every semester. The active members are some of LMU's brightest and most involved students.

Our Mission

Phi Delta Theta was built on three pillars: The cultivation of friendship among its members, the acquirement individually of a high degree of mental culture, and the attainment personally of a high standard of morality.

Helping every individual to meet his true potential is the bedrock of Phi Delta Theta. By celebrating each person’s true self, and by learning from each other’s strengths while helping to improve each other’s weaknesses, every member of Phi Delta Theta develops into a greater version of himself than he could ever on his own. Rather than try to find young men to “mold” into some ideal, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empower every brother to exceed his personal expectations.
