The Ohio Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity welcomes all members of the Ohio Wesleyan community. Phi Delt is an extremely active chapter which is equally involved on the OWU campus and the in the Delaware community. We host many events focused on alumni, philanthropy, and recruitment. With a diverse group of members from all across the Country, Phi Delta has a lot to offer potential brothers.

Phi Delts are successful in the classroom and participate in countless activities on campus, including the Wesleyan Council on Student Affairs and the Economics, Chemistry, Politics, and International Studies student boards. We also participate in several varsity sports: cross country, golf, basketball, lacrosse, track and field, and swimming.

Ohio Beta is dedicated to giving back to the local community and volunteers for many ongoing philanthropy events such as Meals on Wheels and Bowl for Kids’ Sake. We also host an annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament to benefit our philanthropy, the ALS Association.

Looking to expand and grow as a chapter, the doors of the Phi Delt chapter house are always open to members of the campus community. We extend an open invitation to incoming freshmen and all unaffiliated men to visit 19 Williams Dr. to learn more about Phi Delta Theta membership.
