Additional Information: Phi Delta Theta was founded on December 26, 1848 in Oxford, Ohio at the University of Miami. Phi Delt was founded upon three cardinal principles -- friendship, sound learning and moral rectitude.
In the fall of 2012, the TN Eta chapter began its journey at MTSU as an interest group. On December 6, 2012, TN Eta was colonized with 34 men and continued its journey to become a chapter. Just over a year later, TN Eta became a chartered chapter with 43 brothers. The chapter currently has initiated 66 members, including alumni.
This group’s accomplishments are countless, and they include multiple top finishes in sorority philanthropy weeks, the top fraternity GPA over several semesters and well established recruiting techniques and campus connections. These young men are leaders in the community, the classroom, the field and in many other platforms. They show strength where they are offered the opportunity and continue to rise to the occasion. TN Eta continues its founding promise of challenging the "frat" stereotype and re-establishing what it means to be a fraternity man.
