We are Ontario Delta, a chapter of the honored fraternity of Phi Delta Theta. Phi Delta Theta, or Phi Delt as some like to call it, was established in 1848 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Since then, Phi Delta Theta has spread all over the United States, and across Canada. We are now one of nearly 200 proud chapters of Phi Delta Theta claiming stake to both colleges and university campuses across the continent.
Since 1848 our values have not changed. We continue to follow our 3 cardinal principles –Friendship, Sound Learning, and Moral Rectitude– all while providing our selves the best university experience possible. We know that the there is power in numbers; something continuously experienced by all brothers of Ontario Delta. Whether it be that painstaking exam, the crushing job interview or the well needed weekend away, as a brother of Ontario Delta you are always prepared and never alone. While Ontario Delta promotes and applauds academic excellence, we also understand the true value of spending time with friends, getting involved on campus and getting the university experience everyone seems to talk about. We all work together to maintain the perfect balance between an academic and social life. As a result of this balance, our brothers are academically, professionally, and socially prepared for the future.
Ontario Delta was founded at York University in 1990. Since that time, we have remained a dominant academic, professional and social force both on and off the campus. Solidifying Ontario Delta’s rightful place on campus was no easy task. York University is no doubt a commuter school, this means most students come to campus just to sit in class then leave. Unfortunately for them they never experience everything else York has to offer. Ontario Delta is one of the extremely few organizations, clubs or student groups on campus that actually give you the opportunity and tools to fully experience the campus, and utilize all it has to offer. Our brothers experience this year after year, and as a result, we are continuously attracting new members and the number of people we call our brothers keeps growing.
