HISTORY
Phi Gamma Delta is a fraternity with chapters located throughout the United States and Canada. The fraternity was founded at Jefferson College located in Pennsylvania in 1848. The fraternity headquarters are located in Lexington, Kentucky. Phi Gamma Delta, along with Phi Kappa Psi, formed the Jefferson Duo because the two fraternities were founded on the same campus within four years of each other.phi gamma delta
