Phi Delta Theta

BC Alpha

Phi Delta Theta International

Phi Delta Theta was built on three pillars that haven’t budged an inch since the Fraternity was founded by “The Immortal Six” in 1848 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The pillars are: The cultivation of friendship among its members, the acquirement individually of a high degree of mental culture, and the attainment personally of a high standard of morality. Shortened, we refer to the principles as friendship, sound learning and rectitude.

Helping every individual to meet his true potential is the bedrock of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. By celebrating each person’s true self, and by learning from each other’s strengths while helping to improve each other’s weaknesses, every member of Phi Delta Theta develops into a greater version of himself than he could ever on his own. Rather than try to find young men to “mould” into some ideal, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empower every brother to exceed his personal expectations.

Letter from Brother Ono

Dr. Santa Ono, 15th President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of British Columbia, Bond 1508

I’m proud to be a member of the Phi Delta Theta community. 

Since its founding in 1930, UBC’s Phi Delta Theta chapter has been known for its high standards and the support it gives its members.

Phi Delta Theta celebrates the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empowers every brother to exceed his personal expectations.

Our three cardinal principles are friendship, sound learning, and moral rectitude and our motto is "One man is no man". We are only whole when we are part of a supportive community, a community such as Phi Delta Theta. 

Become the Greatest Version of Yourself


The first of Phi Delta Theta's cardinal principles is Friendship, a cornerstone of the culture of the BC Alpha chapter. Building a brotherhood and support network of like-minded individuals is the foundation for success as individuals and a chapter. 

Sound Learning

BC Alpha boasts an accomplished active chapter and alumni network, in addition to various incentives and programs in place for academic and career advancement. Phi Delt's first priority is creating a space in which brothers can thrive. 

Moral Rectitude
