4 fraternity and sorority life fraternity and sorority life FRATERNITY AND SORORITY LIFE Virginia Tech is proud to host one of the largest fraternity and sorority communities in America, one that continues to grow rapidly. Over 3,900 students participate in the North American Interfraternity Conference affiliated fraternal organizations, the National Panhellenic Conference sororities, the National Pan-Hellenic Council fraternities and sororities, and organizations in the Multicultural Greek Council. About 17 percent of Virginia Tech s undergraduates are members of a general fraternity or sorority. THE COUNCILS The four governing councils that make up the Virginia Tech fraternity and sorority community serve to coordinate and provide structure to the chapters they represent. Each governing council is unique in its operation and organization, and serves its chapters according to individual philosophy, purpose, and values. The councils consist of the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council, the Panhellenic Council (PHC), and the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC). This guide provides information about the Interfraternity Council at Virginia Tech. For more information about Fraternity and Sorority Life or the other councils, visit Fraternity and sorority life is one of many campus involvement opportunities at Virginia Tech that helps students make a large university seem smaller. While some fraternities and sororities offer housing options for their members, all Greek-letter organizations provide academic support, lifetime friendships, career networking, intramural athletic competition, community service, philanthropic opportunities, social activities, and outstanding leadership opportunities for their members. Students develop a strong sense of belonging to their organization a true home away from home and a strong loyalty to Virginia Tech through the Greek community. Membership is lifelong, and alumni activities are numerous at both the local and national levels. The opportunities for personal, professional, and most importantly, academic success are phenomenal. If you think you are prepared to be a leader in the Virginia Tech community and a leader in your life, consider joining a fraternal organization. It will be an experience you will never forget.

Fraternities and sororities team up to do everything from yard work to street cleaning to painting houses. GREEK WEEK Greek Week is a time in the spring semester when the members of the fraternity and sorority community come together for a variety of community service projects and events that celebrate the Greek community. Traditionally, fraternity and sorority chapters are paired into teams that compete to win points to determine the Greek Week champions. Points are awarded for winning events, having the highest participation, and contributing the most to the community. Past events have included a kick-off concert, President s Gala, Greek Olympic Field Games, Greek Sing, Greek Awards, and the crowning of Greek God and Goddess.

Chapter members clean up neighbors yards and public spaces in an effort to give back to the community. TOWN GOWN COMMITTEE The four governing councils partner with the Town of Blacksburg in monthly meetings to develop a better sense of community. Many more activities that happen throughout the year help to further promote the value of the Fraternity and Sorority Life experience to the university and community partners at Virginia Tech.

7 ifc ifc INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL Welcome to Virginia Tech. There are many opportunities this school has in store for you. Early in your college career, you will be faced with numerous decisions that will change the course of your future. Among the decisions that you will face is whether or not to join a fraternity. You are encouraged to carefully weigh your alternatives and the decision to join. If you decide to participate in recruitment, you will soon discover that it is one of the best decisions you will ever make. Membership in a fraternity will greatly enhance your life and leave you with many fond memories when you graduate. Fraternities not only provide you with social opportunities, but also allow for personal development, close friendships, leadership opportunities, academic achievements, and athletic competitions. In general, each fraternity offers a unique experience that cannot be matched! Gentlemen, Nothing in the world can compare to becoming a part of the Virginia Tech community. From the first day we arrive at orientation, every Hokie is challenged to fulfill the charge of our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). In my opinion, this motto sets us apart from our peer institutions because Virginia Tech students believe in combining a top-notch education with a desire to become leaders in their respective fields and communities. The best way to make the most of your Virginia Tech experience is to get involved in any of the diverse opportunities that are offered around campus. With over 700 active clubs and organizations at Virginia Tech, I am certain every student can find the right group for them. It can be easy to get lost in the many options that are offered at Virginia Tech, and I am pleased to see that you are already exploring avenues to get involved, given your interest in this guide. Becoming a part of the fraternity and sorority community is an excellent way to find a smaller niche within the endless possibilities that are offered here. Our strong interfraternal community consists of 29 organizations. Each of these chapters is unique in their own right, thus, I urge everyone to at least take a look at what fraternity life at Virginia Tech can offer. If you haven t considered a fraternity yet, I encourage you to question what you are looking to accomplish in your time at Virginia Tech. While each organization will present their own unique opportunities, every chapter is focused on developing gentlemen of quality who achieve the highest degree of scholarship, leadership skills, and service to others. If you feel that your desires align with these benefits then I am confident becoming a member of a fraternity will be one that will charge you to grow and learn about yourself while serving others in the true spirit of Ut Prosim. You will foster skills and relationships for a lifetime, not just four years, which sets fraternity membership apart from joining any other organization on campus. VISION: Apart from the lifetime gains of fraternal membership, the Virginia Tech fraternity and sorority experience includes opportunities to participate in sports, social events, service projects, and philanthropic events all year with chapters throughout the community. Fraternities give you the variety and flexibility to get involved in as many activities as you are passionate about Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide Our vision as a community is to be the best possible version of ourselves, while exemplifying a shared values set that reflects a commitment to friendship, personal development, and a life guided by the principles of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). MISSION: The mission of the Interfraternity Council (IFC) is to unify member chapters through our shared experiences, help redirect fraternities that have fallen short as values-based organizations, and strengthen the quality of brotherhood by utilizing a governance style that enhances our approachability and ability to be a resource for chapter development. As such, the IFC has identified the following areas as opportunities for continued growth as a premier fraternity community of true gentlemen: Recruitment Four-year member development Standards and scholarship Leadership and training Healthy competition The best way to see what our community can offer is to come out to the Fraternity and Sorority Life Showcase in September and see for yourself. Every fraternity will have a booth at this event, and chapter representatives will be able to address all of your questions and concerns I hope you become the outstanding new members of our incredible fraternity and sorority community, and best wishes in the coming year! Adil Dittmer President, Interfraternity Council Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide 11

8 ifc ifc BROTHERHOOD The bond of friendship between brothers is strengthened throughout their college careers and remains strong throughout their lifetimes. This unity and friendship not only exists within the local chapters, but also spreads to chapters and alumni across the country. As the bond is not by birth, but by choice, the friendship and dedication are even stronger. Fraternities strive to combine the common goals and ideals of brotherhood with the unique experiences of the individual to create a meaningful whole. ACADEMICS Academics are your first priority as a student at Virginia Tech. A common concern of many students is that joining a fraternity may take away from study time. In actuality, fraternities help create academically successful students. Fraternity membership helps keep students in college. Research conducted by the National Interfraternity Council found fraternity membership increased the student graduation rate by about 20 percent. Fraternities set strict guidelines for their members, and to help make these goals attainable, the organizations offer help in the form of support, personal guidance, and incentives. In addition, IFC encourages academic excellence through scholarship programs, individual awards, and chapter awards. The Virginia Tech IFC requires that students participating in recruitment following their first semester of school have a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA. New freshmen or transfer students are exempt from this requirement due to the required GPA needed to be admitted as a new student at Virginia Tech. QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT: Does your chapter require study hours for members? SERVICE One of the most meaningful and rewarding aspects of Greek life is assisting others through community service projects. Service offers a sense of true satisfaction that can come only from helping others and helps create strong brotherhood ties. Greeks raise money and contribute their time to various organizations, such as the Children s Miracle Network, the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the Special Olympics. In fact, most fraternities host philanthropies on a continuing basis. These organizations greatly appreciate the approximately 15,000 volunteer hours they receive each year from Greek organizations at Virginia Tech. QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT: ATHLETICS What are your fraternity s philanthropic/community service projects? Does your fraternity participate in other organizations philanthropies/service projects? In what community service events does your fraternity participate? Here at Virginia Tech, we have a diverse, competitive intramural program that both Greeks and non-greeks enjoy. Many fraternities participate in football, soccer, water polo, softball, and basketball, just to name a few. Traditionally, the Greek teams have been among the strongest on campus in these sports. Through athletics, the bond of brotherhood is strengthened as the men compete together to reach a common goal. In addition, the Interfraternity and Panhellenic councils, along with the individual Greek organizations, sponsor many athletic events and tournaments in which Greeks compete. Every year, the Interfraternity Council hosts five all-greek tournaments: basketball, flag football, softball, soccer, and volleyball. The competition in these tournaments is fierce. The drive to succeed transfers to the university s intramural system and shows the excellence Greeks strive for in all aspects of life. QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT: In what intramural sports does your chapter participate? Does your chapter have any varsity athletes? In what wellness programs does your chapter participate? What is the minimum GPA requirement? Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide Are there current brothers in my major who could help me with classes? What is your chapter s academic plan? How does your chapter reward strong academic performances? How does your chapter work with members who are struggling academically? Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide 13

9 ifc ifc LEADERSHIP HOMECOMING WEEK Leadership ability was the number one quality named as what businesses want in a survey conducted by the College Review Board. Fraternities foster the necessary leadership skills to produce active and effective leaders. Fraternity men hold leadership positions in many student organizations. In fact, Greeks hold more than half of all student leadership positions across campus! As a result, Greeks dramatically improve campus life for all students. Leadership positions including the Student Government Association president for 2009 and 2010; class presidents for 2010, 2011, and 2012; more than half of orientation leaders; the director of the Big Event; and student government committee chairs are all held by fraternity men. Greek chapters are self-governing. This means there are many opportunities for students to be involved in the decision-making processes and the management of their chapters. Leadership positions exist in every chapter and give members enhanced leadership experience, which will assist students after graduation when looking for a job. Chapters also open doors to other opportunities across campus, including a chance to become one of the 13 IFC executive officers. Homecoming week is one of the most anticipated times of the fall semester for Greeks. Chapters are matched up with each other and spend the week together going out and doing activities, such as casino nights, bonfires, cookouts, and more. For those organizations that have a candidate on the Homecoming court, the week includes going to the pep rally, a concert, and the Homecoming parade, as well as campaigning for their brother or sister all week. The Greek presence is felt at halftime of the Homecoming football game when the candidates are introduced and the king and queen are announced on the field. Since the majority of the candidates on the court each year are Greeks, the Greek population stands out. QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT: What leadership opportunities does your chapter provide? In what other kinds of organizations are the members involved? What leadership positions do the members hold on campus? Homecoming weekend attracts Virginia Tech fraternity alumni from all over the country. Their presence adds to the excitement of Homecoming week. This also provides an excellent networking opportunity for brothers that will continue to benefit them even after graduation. Homecoming week provides some of the best memories for Greeks and creates many new friendships. This year s festivities are guaranteed to exceed your expectations. SOCIALLY EXCELLENT QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT: Sitting alone in your room does not lead to many lasting memories of college, nor does it allow you to develop relationships. There are many opportunities and ways for fraternity men to become involved and move from being an awkward turtle to the best socially excellent version of himself. Whatever your skill or interest, there is an organization for you. Do you like being around a lot of people? Prefer to interact in smaller groups? Fraternity challenges you to do both. Through these interactions, you become connected to your fraternity, the fraternity and sorority community, the campus, and quite honestly, the world. Does your fraternity participate in Homecoming? What kinds of events does your fraternity have planned? GREEK AWARDS Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide One of the most enjoyable parts of fraternity and sorority life at Virginia Tech is the opportunity to interact with other people who share a common desire to represent what s great about being Greek. Fraternities regularly attend formal dances, social events with sororities, sporting events, philanthropies, and other outdoor activities on campus, within Blacksburg, and beyond. This offers a welcome relief from their academic studies, and the opportunity to create meaningful relationships that will last for a lifetime. What makes us social fraternities aren t the events that we participate in, but how we develop the skills to be more authentic, curious, and generous in our interactions with each other and the greater community. It is the depth of our relationships and the skills we develop that make us social fraternities, where your membership extends well beyond your college years. Our goal isn t simply to be more social, but to be more socially excellent! QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT: In what regular social activities does your chapter participate? Which chapters has your chapter held events with in the past year? Each year, fraternities and sororities are recognized for their efforts in leadership, service, and community engagement. In the spirit of cooperation and in support of the collegiate fraternity system, an award system has been set up to recognize those going above and beyond the minimum standards. The following areas are critical to the success of the entire Greek community at Virginia Tech: academic performance, leadership, service, membership development and education, and chapter operations and management. These areas have been broken up into more specific categories, and awards are given to those fraternities that excel in these categories. Chapters will submit applications for individual awards, and a committee of campus partners will review and select the recipients. Chapters are also eligible to win People s Choice awards, which is a recognition by fellow groups within the community. The Interfraternity Council has a specific honor for the chapter that consistently wins its intramural tournaments each year. The Hokie Grail is a coveted award dating back many years for our fraternities Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide 15

10 ifc ifc FRATERNITY RECRUITMENT MEN S RECRUITMENT Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide THE VIRGINIA TECH FRATERNITY MAN S CREED It is expected that a Virginia Tech fraternity man is a man of honor and integrity, a man who projects a positive image of masculinity and civility, as he is a man who works to include others rather than to exclude them. A Virginia Tech fraternity man strives for excellence. He has a clear focus and curiosity for his academic success while maintaining a healthy sense of personal balance. He works to make the communities he is part of better by his active participation in them through courageous leadership. A Virginia Tech fraternity man is a man for others. He treats others, all others, with respect, dignity, and worth. He cares for other men as brothers or as best friends. A Virginia Tech fraternity man aspires to be a role model in the best sense of the word, for his peers and for those who follow him. The current Virginia Tech fraternity man joins the generations of Virginia Tech fraternity men, carrying on traditions begun in 1872 while creating new ones as they embrace Ut Prosim as a way of life and make their collective mark on the fellowship that is Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. -- Adopted, The Interfraternity Council at Virginia Tech, April 2012 Why become a fraternity man? Become a fraternity man for personal development, lifelong friendship, campus involvement, Virginia Tech pride, leadership opportunities, alumni contacts, and community service for a lifetime. Joining any student organization is a way to make Tech a little bit smaller and more personal. It is a way to find your niche at a large institution. Explore the opportunities yourself and find out how joining the Fraternity and Sorority Life community might interest you. GPA REQUIREMENT In order to receive a bid (the formal invitation to become a new member) in a fraternity, the Interfraternity Council of Virginia Tech and the Fraternity and Sorority Life office require that students participating in recruitment following their first semester of school have a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA. New freshmen or transfer students are exempt from this requirement due to the required GPA needed to be admitted as a new student at Virginia Tech. Some chapters have their own higher minimum GPA requirements. Credits and grades will be verified through the Fraternity and Sorority Life office. RECRUITMENT PROCESS Fraternity recruitment is the process by which prospective members are introduced to the fraternity community. This introduction will include a recruitment fair, a recruitment kickoff event, informational sessions, and an opportunity to get to know many of the chapters. It is important that you take advantage of all these opportunities so that you are able to make an informed choice when deciding to join a chapter. During the two weeks from kick-off to bid delivery, individual fraternities conduct formal recruitment in which they host several sessions and brotherhood-like activities to get to know the prospective members. This period is dry, meaning that alcohol cannot be present. These activities enable both the fraternity and the prospective members to draw some conclusions about fit, interest, and congruence with stated goals and values along with creating the opportunity for friendships to occur. At the end of the two-week period, individual fraternities decide who should participate in an invitation-only recruitment event. Prospective members can attend any number of invitation-only events, but this event is typically more formal and offers a final opportunity to ask questions and get answers. After this event, fraternities vote to decide which students will receive a bid offer. In order to be offered a bid, the prospective member must be registered for fraternity recruitment this can be done through the Student Organizations link in Hokie SPA. All bids will go out on the same night, and acceptance is normally held two days later at the Fraternity and Sorority Life office. Prospective members have no obligation to accept bids extended to them. If they do accept a bid or defer acceptance, they will be bound to that organization for the remainder of the semester. This means that they cannot join another general fraternity for that time period, should they decide that they do not wish to continue their membership. With the exception of the two-week formal recruitment period, fraternities can extend invitations to join at any time, 365 days a year. Some fraternities conduct summer recruitment events in addition to the traditional formal fall and spring recruitment periods. The Fraternity and Sorority Life Showcase and chapter informational sessions provide opportunities to learn about the fraternity community without having to visit all of the chapters individually. There are differences among the fraternities, so be sure to fully investigate the groups that interest you. You can start by reviewing the chapters section in this guide. Contact the Interfraternity Council if you want to be listed in the potential member database. Remember, you will need to register for fraternity recruitment through the Student Organizations link on Hokie SPA. BE SURE TO ASK YOURSELF: Why do you want to join a Greek organization? If it is to party and recreate scenes from Animal House, then please rethink your priorities. Do you understand that you will be joining this organization for life? Do you know the financial requirements of membership? Will you have the time to participate in chapter leadership positions, chapter meetings, service events, intramurals, and other chapter activities? What is the GPA requirement of the chapter? What is the average GPA for the most recent new-member class? Does the chapter have a written program for academics? Does the chapter disclose the contents of its pledge/ new-member program? Does the chapter tell you the date of initiation up front? What is the percentage of members involved in student organizations? What is the percentage of chapter members that graduate? If the chapter has a housing facility, is it well kept and clean? What awards and honors has the chapter won? Do all members participate equally in community service? What alumni connections are available through the organization? Will this organization help build your résumé for a successful career after you graduate? Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, what group do you fit in with and feel the most comfortable around? Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide 17

11 ifc ifc FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS IFC FORMAL RECRUITMENT Q: WILL I BE HAZED? WHAT IS IFC FORMAL RECRUITMENT? A: Hazing has no place in our fraternity community. You absolutely should not be hazed. You should never participate in any activity that makes you feel uncomfortable, or may make others uncomfortable. If you are ever in doubt, know that you can contact the office of Fraternity and Sorority Life or your fraternity headquarters for more information or clarification. Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SON IS BEING HAZED? A: Keep the lines of communication open and make sure that you ask what activities he is participating in. If he hesitates, or says he cannot tell you, probe a little further. Except for the ritual, he should be able to describe everything. Some signs to look for: missing classes, excessive tiredness, change in regular communication habits, exclusive focus on the fraternity, and radical appearance changes. Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM BEING HAZED? A: You should never be made to do anything that makes you or others feel uncomfortable, causes you pain or anguish, or makes you question your personal, emotional, or physical well-being. IFC formal recruitment is the organized period of time when general fraternities on this campus recruit new members. Official formal IFC recruitment lasts for 12 days, the last two of which are closed recruitment, where potential members attend only events they are specifically invited to. The day immediately following official recruitment is called bid extension day. This is the day when fraternities extend bids to individuals to join their organizations. This is followed by 48 hours of silence in which students make their decisions. After this is bid acceptance, when students inform the fraternity that they intend to affiliate with it. This ends the official recruitment period for the fall. HOW DO I REGISTER FOR FORMAL RECRUITMENT? Q: WHAT ARE THE TOTAL COSTS TO BE A MEMBER OF A FRATERNITY? A: Each fraternity s dues structure is different. Cost will depend on the fraternity s activity level and whether everything is included up front. Joining a fraternity will usually require a one-time fee. Additional costs will depend on whether or not the fraternity has a house. Insurance will also be a major expense. Do not forget regular dues. The dues and fees should not pay for alcohol. Fraternity registration takes place on Hokie SPA. Click on the Student Organizations link and follow the instructions. Students must be registered for recruitment to be eligible for membership. WHEN IS FORMAL RECRUITMENT? Q: HOW WILL MY GRADES BE AFFECTED? A: Ideally, your grades should improve. Academics must be your first priority. The fraternity can offer support in time management, tutoring, study enhancement and incentives, and class assistance. It is up to you to make sure that you do well and that you ask your chapter about available academic resources. You can find the dates for this year s recruitment as well as the dates for other fraternity events on the Interfraternity Council calendar on the website ( WHAT FORMAL RECRUITMENT EVENTS ARE MANDATORY? Virginia Tech Fraternity Recruitment Guide Q: WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS? A: You will be amazed at what you will get from your fraternity commitment. Joining a fraternity rounds out the collegiate experience. In a fraternity, you get a complete education. Fraternities offer lifelong friends, leadership opportunities, social and athletic activities, academic support, and networking opportunities. Check out for more information. Q: DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN THE FRATERNITY HOUSE? A: It depends on the chapter. It is likely that you will want to live in the house to take advantage of the opportunities it presents. Living in the house may provide some of your best memories. You should make sure that the house has passed its safety inspections and is clean. Talk to the men who currently live in the house to gain more information about what it is like to live there. Make an unannounced stop during the week to get a sense of how the brothers live. Q: IF I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT FRATERNITY AND SORORITY LIFE, WHERE DO I GO? A: You can always contact the office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. You may us at or you can visit the website at The office has many resources and information available to help you succeed. There are no mandatory recruitment events. You may go to as many or as few as you want. All open events can be attended by anyone. Closed rush events are private and attended only by those students specifically invited. IF I ATTEND, DO I HAVE TO AFFILIATE AND JOIN? Absolutely not. The formal recruitment period is your time to see what chapters of our national fraternities are recognized on this campus, and it gives the fraternities a time to show interested students what they are all about. If you participate in this recruitment program, you are in no way obligated to affiliate with any fraternity, even if you receive an offer of membership from that chapter. However, if you want to join a fraternity, it is strongly recommended that you participate in the formal recruitment program. WHO SHOULD I CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION?

There are more than 125 chapters nationwide and in Canada. Over the years, Beta Theta Pi has initiated more than 190,000 members with 8,000 current undergrad members who share the common belief in academic excellence, sense of tradition, brotherhood, and unsullied friendship. While brotherhood serves as the cornerstone of Beta, this lasting bond of friendship is cultivated by being part of a group of individuals who share the same goals and values. The Alpha Phi chapter here at Virginia Tech was founded in 1877 and re-colonized in the fall of The brothers of Beta Theta Pi have exercised academic excellence by finishing above the all-fraternity average every semester for the past three years. They have performed so well academically that the general fraternity created the Virginia Tech Award to honor chapters nationally for scholastic achievement. Beta Theta Pi has won Outstanding House Management five of the past six years from the Interfraternity Council. Other Interfraternity Council awards from this past year include Outstanding Chapter Management of the Year Award, Outstanding Risk Management Program of the Year Award, and Outstanding Academic Achievement Award. Beta Theta Pi s individual Interfraternity Council awards include Fraternity Advisor of the Year and Outstanding Athlete of the Year. For the past two years, the Alpha Phi chapter of Beta Theta Pi has won the Sisson Award, the second-highest honor that Beta Theta Pi can bestow upon one of its chapters, as well as Most Improved Chapter. In addition to academics, Beta Theta Pi launched a new philanthropy in 2010 called the World s Largest Pillowfight on the Drillfield, a successful event it plans to continue in the future. The Kappa Delta chapter of Delta Sigma Phi at Virginia Tech is not a typical fraternal experience. Typical is not enough. Typical is hurting our people, killing our men, disrespecting our women, crumbling our communities, shortening our future, and hindering our goals. Our world, our communities, and our campus need men who aren t afraid to be different men who will stand up, ask questions, take bold steps, give of themselves, live life with passion, rise to the moment, and act when others only watch. Men who are, and want to be, better. We seek out these men and strive to develop them and help them reach their full potential. Our motto is Better Men, Better Lives, and we follow this every day by pushing our brothers to be excellent. Our brothers have accomplished great things, both as a whole and individually, since joining. These accomplishments range from being awarded Virginia Tech Chapter of the Year two years in a row, to having multiple brothers in class leadership roles, student government, on the orientation staff, in Student Alumni Associates, and in the Freshman Leadership Experience. Together we strive to create a better world for ourselves, our fraternity, our community, our campus, and for all mankind. Is Delta Sig for you?

Kappa Alpha Order strives to make you a successful individual who will accomplish prestige upon entering the real world. Kappa Delta Rho fraternity was founded on May 17, 1905, by 10 men at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont. These men began their journey to establish a new standard of excellence and something different on the Middlebury campus. They adopted the motto Honor Super Omnia (Honor Above All Things), and their officers took on Roman titles instead of Greek Republic titles as other fraternities had. This was done not only to distinguish themselves from the other fraternities, but also to emulate the Romans stern virtues. The Gamma Beta chapter at Virginia Tech is one of the newest fraternities on campus, having re-chartered in March of The founders of the Virginia Tech chapter examined fraternity life on campus and were not satisfied. Just as the original founders, they wanted something different. KDRs from around the country are impressed with the outstanding men of the Gamma Beta chapter, and they have lent their support. This is a fraternity on the rise, striving to be the best chapter on campus. Now is an incredible time to be a brother of KDR. Their youth as a chapter allows them to determine their own destiny and build the fraternity in their vision. This vision is clear: The brothers of Kappa Delta Rho strive to place Honor Above All Things, to be successful gentlemen in all walks of life, and to form relationships that will enrich their future.

Robert Morrison and fellow senior John McMillan Wilson invited John Wolfe Lindley, Robert Thomson Drake, Andrew Watts Rodgers, and Ardivan Walker Rogers to join them in forming this secret society. They drafted and amended a constitution over the following days, ultimately producing the Bond of Phi Delta Theta, a document that has remained principally unchanged since its creation. Phi Delta Theta quickly spread across the country, becoming the first fraternity to expand west of the Mississippi. In 1902, Phi Delta Theta became the first international fraternity when a chapter was established at McGill University in Quebec. The fraternity now has 169 chapters in 44 states and five Canadian provinces. The fraternity has initiated nearly 223,000 men since The Virginia Eta chapter of Phi Delta Theta traces its roots back to the local nonaffiliated fraternity, Sigma Alpha Kappa, which was founded on February 19, 1967, as a group of 27 young men. On April 29, 1972, soon after Virginia Tech fraternal groups were permitted to affiliate with national organizations, it received its official charter from Phi Delta Theta general headquarters in Oxford. Since 1972, the Virginia Eta chapter has initiated 532 brothers, who live their lives according to the three cardinal principles of Phi Delta Theta: friendship, sound learning, and rectitude. Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) is dedicated to developing men of character within the academic setting, with the aim that they will become fully contributing members of society. In pursuit of this mission, the fraternity promotes five core values: friendship, knowledge, service, morality, and excellence. FIJI is a thriving force in the Greek community here at Virginia Tech. We realize that our primary reason for coming to college is to receive a quality education. Founded on the principles of scholarship, fraternity, self, we have consistently maintained some of the highest grades among Virginia Tech fraternities. For the past nine years, we have put on our annual FIJI Run Across Virginia philanthropy, which is one of Virginia Tech s highest grossing philanthropies of any one student organization. This past year we raised over $46,000 and in eight years we have broken the $333,000 mark. Our motto, Friendship, the Sweetest Influence, shows that through the close bond of our brotherhood, we can accomplish anything. Also, FIJI is always active in the areas of intramural sports, leadership opportunities, career development, and networking outlets. Although we do focus a large part of our attention on our scholarship, our philanthropy, our service, and our quality, we still provide a vibrant social scene. We enjoy gathering together as a brotherhood and providing social functions with our own brothers, our friends, and Virginia Tech s finest sororities. In all, we, the brotherhood of Phi Gamma Delta, strive for excellence in every aspect of our lives here at Virginia Tech.

Epsilon also recaptured the Hokie Grail, which is awarded to the organization winning the most intramural athletic events throughout the year. The brotherhood looks to further its success, and continue to prosper and grow. For more than 100 years, Pi Kappa Phi has been building better men on college campuses across the country. From our humble roots at the College of Charleston in South Carolina to over 160 campuses today, Pi Kappa Phi stands for a commitment to fundamental values.

These principles are not only valued, but instilled through leading-edge educational, service, and leadership opportunities.

Along with academics, Pi Kappa Phi also places a huge emphasis on philanthropies.

The Virginia Zeta chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded at Virginia Tech in The goal of our fraternity is to teach and emulate four basic principles: scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and friendship. This chapter s strength shows not only through the awards and achievements it has accomplished both campus-wide and nationally, but also through its presence on campus as True Gentlemen. We focus on living up to the expectations of our creed, while enjoying all college has to offer with our brothers.

The group adopted the name Lambda Chi. The chapter brotherhood began with a membership of 22. On November 13, 1971, Lambda Chi affiliated itself with and became part of the Sigma Chi fraternity. Installed by Grand Historian Robert LeClerg, the Eta Lambda chapter of Sigma Chi was chartered, with the Tau chapter of Roanoke College being appointed advising chapter. The following year, Eta Lambda s first Derby Days was held in Blacksburg at chapter adviser Frank Coach Teske s farm. In a spirit of fun and competition, Eta Lambda brought together 13 sororities from the Virginia Tech and Radford campuses to raise money for Sigma Chi s national philanthropy, the Children s Miracle Network. The tradition of Derby Days is ongoing; each year seems better as Derby Days become one of the focal points of Greek activity. The Eta Lambda chapter of Sigma Chi seeks to enlighten members through friendship, justice, and learning. The brotherhood s practice of these ideals makes for a rewarding undergraduate experience. Sigma Chi offers college men an opportunity to become leaders, scholars, philanthropists, and athletes. The brotherhood helps redefine these qualities by seeking men of different temperaments, talents, and convictions. As a social fraternity, the members celebrate their brotherhood and ritual. Sigma Chi helps balance members social side with the serious side, namely brotherhood and ritual. It was a moonlit October night in 1868 when our founding fathers made their purpose clear to create a fraternal organization unlike any other, one that held the personal honor and integrity of its membership in the highest regard. Their idea has since become a tradition no one individual could possibly imagine a legacy of honor, unparalleled in scope, that continues strong today. Since our founding, Sigma Nu fraternity has initiated over 200,000 knights into the Legion of Honor and has established over 250 chapters and colonies across North America. Clearly, this tradition of honor created by our founders over 135 years ago has the ability to change lives. Does it have the ability to change your life, too? Theta Xi chapter of Sigma Nu has 50 years of alumni support and history here at Virginia Tech. Sigma Nu has one of the highest grade point averages of all fraternities on campus. Also, Sigma Nu is the only fraternity to have a fully developed leadership program designed to teach members how to be leaders on campus and in our chapter. Our chapter offers members the opportunity to enhance their social and academic life as well as give them opportunities to give back to the community through philanthropic work.

Sig Phi men share the same ideals of camaraderie, team work, and leadership that all Engineers must pursue to excel in their career, and these shared values result in a passion for Brotherhood unseen in other Engineering organizations. Sigma Phi Delta is unique because it receives the benefits of both a social and professional fraternity. In addition to participating in various philanthropic and service events, SPD gives back through its own fundraisers towards the local Engineers Without Borders chapter. We also host social events and mixers with sororities and organizations, and value the close relationship we have with our sister sorority, Alpha Omega Epsilon, with whom we cooperate on a regular basis. To truly get the most out of one s time at Virginia Tech, he should open himself to every opportunity available, and SPD exclusively opens doors for its members through professional events such as engineering info sessions, lunches with professors, tours of local engineering buildings and projects, and employer networking nights. With over 50 VT alumni employed in various engineering careers across the nation, as well as thousands from other chapters, stepping beyond the veil of graduation isn t so daunting with the letters SPD emblazoned on your heart. Sigma Tau Gamma is a national college fraternity founded in 1920 by veterans of the first World War. Founded as a society of men who endeavor to promote the highest ideals of manhood, brotherhood, and citizenship, its members dedicate themselves to a set of six principles: value, learning, leadership, excellence, benefit, and integrity. Our group formed in January of 2011 to foster a transition from friendship to brotherhood. As the newest fraternity at Virginia Tech, its founding members not only seek to promote the principles and ideals of Sigma Tau Gamma, but to pioneer traditions and opportunities to build its foundation upon. Our members have been given the chance to play a crucial role in the development of our identity as a fraternity.

After years of searching for a place to call their own in Blacksburg, Past President John Tyler Fearnow III led the effort to purchase and renovate an old barn on the outskirts of the town surrounded by farm land. Since completion, the house has served as a place that we can call our own, more commonly referred to as The Barn. Outside the barn, beneath a willow tree, stands a solitary pillar dedicating the house in memory of Tyler, who tragically drowned in the New River prior to his graduation. We may have lost a brother, but the memorial serves as a constant reminder for us of the dedication and passion of those who came before us. In 2012, with the work of 23 dedicated brothers and the life loyal support of alumni, TKE was re-established back on the campus of Virginia Tech. Throughout the brotherhood, the Spring of 2012 is known as the Cornerstone Year. The Cornerstone Year marks the date in which the chapter regained recognition and returned to Virginia Tech. That spring, under the leadership of President Marc Mazzie, we recruited 30 men, the largest pledge class in chapter history, to build the foundation of a successful chapter. Among that pledge class there have been numerous leaders whom have devoted their time and effort not only to the chapter, but also other organizations on campus as well as TKE nationally. Among these leaders are current President Tyler Miklovic and Past President Shaun Taylor. Shaun became the youngest President in chapter history in 2013 when he was elected as a sophomore. He has also continued his leadership following his term through Virginia Tech s Interfraternity Council, serving as vice-president, as well as working with TKE nationally on the Grand Council serving as the Collegiate Advisory Chairman, the highest ranking undergraduate position in TKE. In the summer of 2013 our chapter was awarded the Top TKE Chapter award nationally. This was a huge accomplishment and a true testament to this brotherhood s resolve. In less than 18 months this chapter went from unrecognized to a top contender in the country. In the fall the chapter was recognized by Virginia Tech as the 2013 People s Choice Fraternal Award Recipient. This award is voted by the other Fraternities and Sororities on campus recognizing the chapter that best resembles what a brotherhood should truly look like. In the spring the chapter was recognized by Virginia Tech as the Best Chapter on campus. In addition, TKE has won several philanthropies in the past few semesters such as Alpha Chi Omega s Mock Rock (2012), Delta Delta Delta Flapjacks and Football (2013), and Alpha Phi s Keep the Beat Week (2014). Through the first 40 years this chapter has changed, but has always been guided by our values of love, charity, and esteem. What started out as a few men looking for friendship has turned into the greatest and most tight-knit family that you ll ever find. New Member Initiation GPA Requirement: Not Provided Active Member GPA Requirement: Not Provided The Delta Theta Kappa fraternity was founded on February 11, 1969, by 12 Virginia Tech students. On May 5, 1971, Delta Theta Kappa became colonized by Theta Chi national fraternity. On March 25, 1972, it became the Eta Lambda chapter of Theta Chi. After searching five years for a suitable location in Blacksburg, on September 1, 1976, the fraternity moved to its present house at 296 Jennelle Road in Christiansburg. On April 13, 1978, the fraternity acquired ownership of the house. Theta Chi owns the largest house of any fraternity currently a part of Virginia Tech. It has recently been renovated by our alumni to accommodate 14 brothers. Through our extensive alumni network, as well as their financial support, the house is continually upgraded with new and exciting features to every room. It has a finished basement with eight bedrooms, a kitchen, two large baths (two showers each), a weight room, and bar room. The first floor has six bedrooms, two large baths, and a kitchen, as well as a den, dining room, and living room. The home has lots of open floor space, a basketball hoop along the driveway, a large front lawn, and a trail behind the house that leads up to El Mariachi s restaurant (often used for brotherhood dinners during the week).

Currently, TDX chapters are housed in more than two dozen of the most prestigious institutions of higher education in North America. Theta Delta Chi has been a pioneer in many fields. It was the first of all college societies to publish a fraternity magazine, The Shield. It was the first to adopt colors (blue, black, and white), and was the first to design and fly a characteristic flag. It was the first to adopt a precious stone (ruby) as well as the first to adopt a patron among the deities of mythology (Minerva, the Goddess of Wisdom, who has since been adopted as the patron goddess of all fraternities). Theta Delta Chi was the first fraternity to adopt the use of a pledge pin, and it was also the first to form an endowment fund. Theta Xi from used to be known as Tau Beta Upsilon, TBU for short. In 1972, Tau Beta Upsilon changed its name to Theta Xi. From then on, Theta Xi has had a dominating presence in the Virginia Tech Greek community by participating in many sororities philanthropy and campus events such as The Big Event and the Hokie 5k. Among service, Theta Xi also prides itself on leadership development. In addition to numerous leadership opportunities within its own organization, Theta Xi also encourages its members to become involved with other campus organization. This philosophy not only helps Theta Xi gain exposure around campus, but it also aids in personal development of its individuals. By being a student at Virginia Tech, your education extends further than the classroom, and the Theta Xi fraternity prides itself on providing an environment that fosters personal development, so that its individuals can leave college with a better understanding of themselves and the world they live in. Currently, Theta Xi has a chapter of 47 brothers that reside all over the town of Blacksburg, with a concentration of 14 brothers in three separate houses on Upland Drive, their fraternity house being one of them. The brothers are known for being close-knit, gregarious, scholarly, and a good time. If Theta Xi is an organization you are interested in, then visit them by attending one of their rush events. Their staple rush events include: off-roading, clay pigeon shooting, and a cook-out at the house with volleyball and hors d oeuvres. For more information about Theta Xi, contact Tim Howard at his He will be able to notify you of upcoming rush events.
