The Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta was founded on May 1, 1848 at Jefferson College in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. The founders of this brotherhood wanted to include men with distinguished attributes, high ambitions, and a sense of honor. Better known today as FIJIs, the members of this exclusive society still uphold the promotion of lifelong friendships, high ethical values, and the pursuit of excellence through personal development. Just as it was over 150 years ago, Phi Gamma Delta is committed to providing the opportunities for brothers to develop responsibility, leadership, scholastics, and social skills.
California is also the home to many notable Fiji historical sites and stories, perhaps none more significant than the birth of the Frank Norris Pig Dinner. Many of these items are detailed in the Phi Gamma Delta Historical Archives. This information can be accessed online HERE.
