At William Woods University we encourage students to step up as leaders, to push themselves academically, to prepare professionally, to engage socially and to learn from and serve the community around them. And for over 50 years we have seen men at William Woods achieve these goals through becoming a part of a fraternity on campus. Create brotherhood bonds that last a lifetime, take part in the experiences and memories that will never be forgotten, and find the fraternity — the community — that was built for you.
Phi Gamma Delta
"Not for college days alone"
Phi Gamma Delta is dedicated to developing men of character within the academic setting, with the aim that they will become fully contributing members of society. In pursuit of this mission, the Fraternity promotes five core values: Friendship, which brings us together and is the basis of our brotherhood. Knowledge, the primary reason our members attend college and the key to a fuller, richer life. Service, in recognition of our obligation to give back to the campus and community that foster our growth. Morality, our commitment to do what is right in all our relationships. Excellence, the achievement of the full potential of the chapter and the individual members.
