Why Rush


Being a Brother of Phi Delta Theta means making friends for life. This brotherhood will extend far beyond your college years. This diverse group of individuals shares a passion for friendship that is unparalleled throughout Greek life. No matter what difficulties occur in life, you will always have brothers by your side. Phi Delta Theta is about sharing your college experience with a unique group of men that you would be proud to call your Brother. Through the bond of Phi Delta Theta, men with different backgrounds but similar ideals unite with a common purpose: to foster excellence in scholarship, leadership, teamwork, individual growth, and involvement in community service.



We take campus involvement very seriously, and that is reflected by our appointments to some of the most prestigious York University organizations, including the YFS, College Council, Student Groups etc. We are also involved with dozens of smaller organizations and community service groups as well.


Social Life

Collegiate life offers more than academics. Everyone needs a little time to relax, and Phi Delta Theta has just what you need. Our social calendar is second to none. During the school year we host several events including hangouts, sports, retreats and more. In addition, we hold a number of mixers with sororities throughout the year and participate in our own philanthropy and other fraternity/sorority philanthropy projects. Our bonding nights and chapter retreats have been extremely fun for our brothers. Our members often plan vacations together for spring break and summer destinations. In addition, road trips to different schools across Canada and the USA are an unmatched experience.


Academic Achievement

Academics and Scholarship are very important to Phi Delta Theta, being that it is the reason you are attending university. Joining Phi Delta Theta is designed to enhance and establish high precedents for your scholastic career. Weekly study hours are maintained throughout the year to promote effective study habits for higher education. Members have the opportunity to seek guidance and tutoring from older brothers. Our members come from many different fields of study. They often continue their education in law, business, medicine and other grad school programs upon graduation. Our network of alumni include many successful lawyers and businessman, just to name a few fields.
