On June 5, 1871 the Georgia Alpha Chapter of Phi Delta Theta was founded at the University of Georgia. With 137 years on this campus we are the longest continuously active fraternity at UGA. We pride ourselves on our strong, close-knit brotherhood and the caliber of our chapter. Since 1871, Georgia Alpha has consistently produced some of Georgia’s greatest governors, lawyers, and businessmen, including the late Governors Vandiver and Busbee, and Olympic Committee Chairman and Chairman of Augusta National Billy Payne. Several members of our chapter serve in the Armed forces, and we are proud to count a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor among our distinguished Alumni.
For over 140 years at the University of Georgia, Phis have been involved in all areas of campus life, including academics, athletics, and philanthropy. Of all our many accomplishments as a chapter, we are most proud of the strength of our diverse brotherhood and supportive Alumni helping our chapter continue to remain successful today.
