Why become a Phi Gam at UAB?
Phi Gam's are courageous leaders all around the world. It is no different here at UAB, where the Fraternity is amongst one of the most diverse campuses in the Nation. Phi Gamma Delta provides many leadership programs as well as leadership positions. From day one, pledges are asked to select a committee to work with and share their voice.
Phi Gam's at UAB focus on scholarship. The Delta Colony has become committed to providing a competitive academic environment. Spring 2015, Phi Gamma Delta at UAB was recognized for having the highest GPA out of the Inter Fraternity Council as well as was recognized by International Headquarters for its excellent grades.
Phi Gam's overall do not haze. The reason for this is because we require every member to complete numerous programs that educates each member on the topics of: healthy relationships, consent, sexual assault prevention, safe social environments, bystander intervention, alcohol awareness, harm-reduction, as well as programs that use evidence based research.
Phi Gam's offer members the closest thing to home that can be found on campuses. This is what we like to call brotherhood. With brotherhood, Phi Gam's are able to hold each other accountable and encourage each other for life. Here in FIJI, we provide a lifelong membership.
