After three years, the Fiji colony of Phi Gamma Delta will become a chapter at APSU.

Fiji will become a chapter in late April. For the past three years, they have been recognized as a colony, meaning they were not fully recognized as a chapter by their orgnization. To become a chapter, the colony had to meet the requirements and expectations to gain such recognition.

According to Stephen Dominy, coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, the 30 members of Fiji have worked hard to get where they are.

“It has been my mission to ensure the success of all chapters,” Dominy said. “This makes me proud to see these men accomplish something they have worked so hard to achieve. I could not be more proud of them.”

Phi Gamma Delta’s mission is to develop men of character within the academic setting, with the aim that they will become fully contributing members of society.

With its mission are its five core values: brotherhood, knowledge, service, morality and excellence

They are committed to provide oppurtunities for each brother to develop responsibility, leadership, scholarship and social skills.

Fiji President Joshua Fernandez said he is amazed one of the largest goals in his entire college career, to have Fiji recognized as a Greek chapter, is coming to pass.
