Nothing can match the intangible quality of brotherhood that the Fijis enjoy. All the accomplishments of the chapter and its individual members would be meaningless without the strong feeling of brotherhood which exists between our members.
Brotherhood is a relationship that is felt by the members of the house. It is difficult to ascertain by observation or description.
However, this feeling of brotherhood can be extracted from a variety of everyday living situations which require help, understanding, support, advice or merely close friendship. For example, a brother may help another brother with schoolwork knowing that he himself has an important test the following day; or the entire house may attend an intramural game; or many times a brother may attend a class to take notes for another brother who is ill. The list goes on and on.
Brotherhood converts a tolerable living situation into an extremely enjoyable one. Living at Phi Gamma Delta is enjoyable not only because of the accomplishments of the chapter, but because of the deep, genuine care and respect members have for each other. Our chapter is recognized by the rest of the campus as having outstanding brotherhood. This reputation makes all Fijis proud. Brotherhood is what Phi Gamma Delta is all about.
One thing that we have within our house, both at a chapter level, and at an international level is a Big Brother Program. Every pledge brother is assigned an older member of the house to act as his mentor and guide throughout his time as a brother.
