The Tau Upsilon Chapter of FIJI at Tulane University is almost 30 years old, being originally founded in 1982. After being re-chartered in 2006, we are now the youngest chapter on campus. In only five short years since then, we have built up an incredibly strong brotherhood.
In 2008, Tulane FIJIs won 'Chapter of the Year' as well as the Greek League Soccer Championship. In 2011, we again won 'Chapter of the Year' - and carried home more awards than any other Greek organization on campus. In addition, Tulane FIJIs have one of the highest GPAs of any chapter. We look forward to accomplishing much more and continuing to make amazing memories for many years to come.
Phi Gamma Delta is dedicated to finding and developing the very best men at Tulane University. The future of our
fraternity, like any organization, is dependent on the quality of the
individuals it brings in. We are constantly searching for young men
who embody the five cardinal values of Phi Gamma Delta: Friendship, Knowledge, Service, Morality, and Excellence.
The men of the Tau Upsilon chapter of FIJI consistently maintain high levels of excellence in everything they endeavor: academics, intramural athletics, campus-wide involvement, and service within their communities, just to name a few. Our brothers have strong character and great leadership qualities.
If you are looking for an organization that continues to push the boundaries of success while providing an extensive personal and professional development program throughout all college years, then we encourage you to consider Phi Gamma Delta and all that we have to offer you.
Phi Gamma Delta was
founded on May 1, 1848, at Jefferson College in Canonsburg,
Pennsylvania. The founders of the Fraternity, known as the Immortal Six, wanted to create an organization that created men of character in an academic setting, with the aim that they will become fully-contributing members of society. Over 160 years later, the Immortal Six's vision is as strong as ever, with 166,000+ initiated brothers since 1848. Currently, the Fraternity has
6,500 undergraduate brothers in 120 chapters and 18 Delta Colonies in
the United States and Canada.
Members of Phi Gamma Delta hold our Greek letters in reverence. Therefore, we limit their display to a select number of places, such as the front of the chapter house, the fraternity flag, class rings, and the member badge. Our nickname, Fiji, comes from the pronunciation of the Greek letter Phi ("fee") and the abbreviation for Gamma, simply the letter 'G'. In some parts of the country, members of Phi Gamma Delta are known as just 'Phi Gams'.
Famous Fijis include President Calvin Coolidge, Johnny Carson, Jack Nicklaus, Kenneth Blanchard, Phillip Knight, Dean Smith, Roger Penske, Matthew Fox, and Morgan Spurlock.
