Phi Delta Theta was founded at SWOSU in 1971.
They were founded on friendship, sound learning, and moral rectitude.
They participate on campus through philanthropy events that raise money for ALS research and for families affected by ALS. They do so by hosting Pie-A-Phi and the Phi Delt Teeter Totter-A-Thon. Pie-A-Phi is people throwing a pie in the faces of members for donations, and the Phi Delt Teeter Totter-A-Thon includes a teeter-totter that requires at least two members stay on for 77 hours straight for donations. Phi Delt also participates in Relay for Life. For rush, they will be having a Hawaiian themed volleyball rush event on Sept. 9 and a bowling event on Sept. 15 at the local bowling alley in Weatherford.
Phi Delt currently has 26 active members, but they are hoping to grow in numbers after rush.
"What makes us stand out is that we have an alumni-mentorship program called 'Phi Delt Dawgs' that takes guys in the chapter and connects them to an alumni in the career field they are interested in. It allows them to get advice and shadowing done in preparation to go into that field," Jordan Valenzuela, president of Phi Delta Theta, said.
