Established in 1952, Alpha Delta Gamma (ΑΔΓ) is the longest continuously operating fraternity at LMU. Scholastic achievement, service, spirituality, school spirit, and social engagement are at the core of our organization and represent our 5 S’s: the values that guide us in everything we do as an organization and brotherhood. Coming from all walks of life, we also value diversity and through abiding by these core tenets we aim to provide an accepting social environment to foster the growth of leaders. But, most importantly we provide a supportive atmosphere based on our motto, “A brother who is helped by a brother is like a city walled.”
Beta Theta Pi (ΒΘΠ) is a North American social fraternity that was founded in 1839 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The five core values espoused by Beta Theta Pi are cultivation of intellect, responsible conduct, mutual assistance, integrity and trust. These are the underpinnings for their mission to "develop men of principle for a principled life." In 1879, Beta Theta Pi became the first college fraternity to publish its constitution. Beta is known as the Leadership Fraternity, which is displayed by its many members in student leadership at LMU. The Eta Alpha chapter of Beta joined the Loyola Marymount University community in 2007, and hosts Beta Boat Races each year to raise money for their philanthropy, homelessness.
Delta Sigma Phi (ΔΣΦ) is a men's social fraternity, who strive to embody the values of brotherhood, academics, diversity, and leadership. Here at LMU, Delta Sigma Phi isn’t the “typical” fraternity. DSP has brothers involved in every aspect on campus, with majors ranging from theatre arts to electrical engineering, and brothers from all around the world. We are men of courage, men of action, and men of excellence. We are Better Men, Better Lives.
Delta Upsilon (ΔΥ) is the world’s oldest non-secret social fraternity, founded in 1834, whose members live out the mission of Building Better Men. Guided by DU’s principles, each brother upholds the ideal of “Justice, Our Foundation” through promoting friendship, advancing justice, developing character, and diffusing culture. Delta Upsilon supports Delta Upsilons Global Service Initiative, both an international philanthropy and global service opportunity. Delta Upsilon officially colonized at LMU in Spring 2019.
Lambda Chi Alpha (ΛΧA) looks to lead a co-curricular Greek movement, predicated on partnership and collaboration amongst the undergraduates, host institutions, alumni and General Fraternity, and offering an experience that focuses on the maturational development of today’s college man. At LMU, we strive to be involved in the general school environment through classrooms, on-campus jobs and the Greek Life Council. Lambda Chi Alpha is proud to organize philanthropy events benefitting Feeding America, a non-profit organization aimed at eradicating food insecurity in the United States.
Phi Delta Theta (ΦΔΘ) is a brotherhood, a family comprised of diverse, motivated gentlemen who each celebrate both their own individuality and the responsibility that comes with being a part of something that is greater than themselves. Through Phi Delt’s belief in encouraging intellectual, moral, and spiritual growth, Phi Delta Theta continually strives for the betterment of its members and the community as a whole. Phi Delt's philanthropic partner is the Live Like Lou Foundation which is dedicated to ALS research and helps children of families affected by ALS. The Cal Psi chapter raises money for Live Like Lou through Car-Smash in the fall semester, and Phi-Fest in the spring.
In 1989, Sigma Chi (ΣΧ) blossomed the Iota Omega chapter at LMU based on the Seven Standards: a philosophy for embracing men of all temperaments, talents, and convictions. With active application of this philosophy, the Iota Omega chapter brings philanthropy to LMU’s community every Spring with Derby Days, an awareness and funding program for the Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center. The Iota Omega chapter does both Fall and Spring recruitment.
