The national fraternity continues its drive to establish new chapters and re-establish chapters on campuses where we once were. Since 2006 our national fraternity has originated 35 colonies. It’s almost like we are back to the Sixties when the Greek organizations were welcomed by Universities, and students were eager to join.
The latest schools to welcome a chapter or a colony are:
- Colorado College
- Coastal Carolina University
- University of Missouri
- Oklahoma City University
- Vanderbilt University
According to the recent issue of the Phi Gamma Delta magazine, the average chapter size is also growing. In 2008 the average chapter was 56 compared to this past spring when the average chapter size was up to 59.
All of this growth is supported by a staff of two dedicated to the expansion program along with the team of seven — yes seven — field secretaries.
This is an exciting time for our national fraternity.
