Becoming a Member


One of the most important and exciting ongoing events at the Alpha Omega Delta Colony is recruitment, or rush. Phi Gamma Delta has a rich history and tradition on campus and we are continuously building our future.

The future of our fraternity is determined by the quality of men we recruit each year. The success of our fraternity on campus is a by-product of the level of excellence we uphold in our chapter and brothers. We at Phi Gamma Delta take great pride and put forth a tireless effort to initiate the best brothers at Ohio University. Our recruitment process consists of four main steps recruitment, bidding, pledging, and initiation.


At the end of the recruitment period, our brothers assemble to select potential brothers we believe would best represent the values and attitude of our fraternity. We will issue bids to these men. Once the potential members receive the bid and they accept, they will begin pledgeship. Our pledging process lasts a few months and, after successfully completing this process, they will be initiated as brothers and welcomed into our fraternity.

Any high school seniors or current OU students who are interested or have questions about rushing the Alpha Omega Delta Colony of Phi Gamma Delta, please feel free to contact our Rush Chairman, Liam Rhodes '17, at Our schedule for upcoming recruitment events is posted on our events calendar. We look forward to seeing you soon.
