Phi Delta Theta Chapter at The U wins Founders Trophy
Awarded by Phi Delta Theta International, which is located on the campus of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, the Founders Trophy is presented to one outstanding chapter on a medium-sized campus each year. In 2008, the USD chapter ranked first in grades for both semesters and featured 14 members who were named to the University Dean’s List. Phi Delta Theta at USD also boasts a 2008 Truman Scholar, a 2008 Hansford Society Scholar and was represented in 12 campus honor societies.
"As a chapter, we take great pride in receiving this honor," noted David Sahli, chapter president. "Each one of our members is dedicated to ensuring our chapter's success whether it's scholarship, community service or preparing for life after USD."
In addition to outstanding academics, the USD chapter was also recognized for excellence in community service, philanthropy and recruitment. Phi Delta Theta became an official chapter at USD in 1906 making it the oldest Greek chapter on campus. In 2006, Phi Delta Theta was the recipient of the Kansas City Trophy for overall best chapter at the Phi Delta Theta International Awards and in 2004; the USD chapter received honorable mention for the Founders Trophy. The Founders Trophy was donated in 1929 by Judge William R. Bayes, a former justice in the New York City Court of Special Sessions.
