Arkansas Alpha Chapter

The Arkansas Alpha chapter of Phi Delta Theta has historically been one of the strongest Phi Delt chapters in the nation and has initiated over 1,900 men.

Phi Delta Theta prides itself on being one of the most involved fraternities on campus, requiring members to be active within the student and local communities. Some of the organizations that the brothers are a part of include: ASG Senate, ASG Executive Cabinet, Circle K, Alpha Epsilon Delta, Hospitality Club, Leadership Walton, Students in Free Enterprise, Finance Club, GAMMA (Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol), Razorback Track and Field, Student Alumni Association, Razorback Patrol, Student Movement, Community Blood Drive of the Ozarks, and the University Symphony Orchestra.

The brothers of Phi Delta Theta are actively recruiting the most elite students at the University of Arkansas. We believe that all new members should fall into one of the following five categories: Scholars, Leaders, Athletes, Community Servants or Business-Minded. We have high expectations of all new members and have a newly-designed non-hazing pledge program that is focused on developing the individual and preparing them for the rigors of active membership.

Phi Delta Theta also calls itself the "Fraternity For Life". Membership does not end after graduation. There are numerous programs designed to keep alumni members involved both within the chapter and the organization. Additionally, there is the networking aspect of any national fraternity. Phi Delta Theta boasts a living alumni network of over 160,000 members, which includes over 1,000 in the state of Arkansas. This is imperative when seeking out jobs and internships.Some famous alumni from the Arkansas Alpha Chapter include John Tyson (CEO of Tyson Chicken), Skip Rutherford (President of the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library) and Eddie Drilling (President of AT&T Arkansas).

The chapter house, located on historic Fraternity Row, just underwent over $4 million dollars in renovations and is considered one of the nicest fraternity facilities on campus. Everything is state-of-the-art from the flat screen TV's and leather couches in the living room to the industrial grade kitchen. The brothers take pride in the fact that their parents are always welcome at the house and comfortable with its condition.

Now is an exciting time to be a part of Phi Delta Theta. New members become involved immediately, take leadership positions and leave their legacy much earlier than in other established fraternities.
