Our History

The Kentucky Iota Chapter of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity was established at the University of Louisville (U of L) on November 17, 2007.  Over the past several years, Phi Delts have been leading roles across campus serving in REACH, Student Government, Campus Housing, and RSO leadership. We’ve raised thousands for our charitable partners at the ALS Foundation, have developed regular philanthropy programs, and are working on besting our previous records every year.

Since graduating from our young chapter, our brothers have gone on to achieve their personal goals. Our alumni base stretches across America from Houston to New York City. We are the proud brothers of some brilliant engineers, physicians, chefs, businessmen, lawyers, members of the military and more.

Nationally our chapter regularly receives awards from General Headquarters for our high standards.

Kentucky Iota Today

Our chapter is one of the fastest growing chapters at the University of Louisville. Despite this, we’re proud to say that every brother can name the hometown, current major and hobbies of every other brother. We haven’t forgotten our core principles of friendship, sound learning and moral rectitude. At Phi Delt every one is treated fairly from the Phikeia who moved here from across the country to the life long Louisvillian. We are our brother’s keepers.

Today, the Kentucky Iota chapter boasts some of the highest grades on campus, involvement ranging from Student Government and Campus Housing to REACH and Habitat for Humanity, and numerous awards from the University of Louisville’s Fraternity & Sorority Life office. Phi Delts are found in all of UofL’s colleges taking a wide variety of majors including Chemical Engineering, Political Science, Mathematics, English, Nursing, Accounting, Bioengineering, History, Economics and Philosophy. Each year we also raise thousands for our national philanthropy the ALS association, in dedication to Phi Delt Lou Gehrig.

If you’re looking for a group of principled men with a bright future then look no further.
