Our Campus Involvment
Last semester we had 4 socials with other Greek life organizations. We do these for two reasons. The first is that one of our pillars is friendship. What better way to facilitate that other than through super fun events with other people? The other reason we have socials is because, well, they're a lot of fun.
The first social we had was with the sorority Sigma Kappa. For this social, we went to a haunted house. Everyone who went had a great time! Friendships were built!
The second social we had was with the sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha. For this social, we got together and played games. There were snacks and refreshments.
The third social was a four-way with Phi Mu, Delta Zeta, and Phi Kappa Psi. For this, we went to the Indianapolis zoo for their Christmas at the Zoo production. This was by far probably the best social of the semester. The picture was taken at this social after the dolphin show. Walking through the zoo with all of the Christmas lights was a really cool experience. Especially, because of the community of people.
The fourth social was roller skating with Alpha Chi Omega. The best part about this event was watching all of the people who could only get a few feet before needing to grab onto something. There was also unlimited pizza and drinks. All in all, it was a great night.
Socials are a great way to meet people, and enjoy the greek community here at IUPUI.
At Phi Delta Theta-Indiana Mu Intramurals are a huge deal. We take great pride in our sports and we always strive to win. We don't like to accept anything less than a championship. In the spring semester of 2016, our Fraternity had a very successful intramural basketball season. During the regular season, our A team went undefeated. Our B team almost went undefeated. They lost one game, but it was to our A team. Both teams went on to meet in the championship game which was played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The A team ended up bringing home the title in a hard fought battle between both teams.
In the fall semester of 2016, we registered two flag football teams in the intramural league. Both of our teams made it to the final four. One of our teams won the championship.
Intramurals are a very successful part of our chapter and we will look to continue our dominance for semesters to come. It brings everybody closer together and the support that the guys show is second to none. We are a competitive group of guys, but we have fun doing it!
Here at IUPUI the men of Phi Delta Theta-Indiana Mu take ALS and its research very seriously. To the brothers that are directly affected by it to the brothers that have just recently learned about it we are all passionate about finding a cure together. Every year we make sure to have multiple philanthropic events to continue to raise as much money as we can. Along with these events, we also have brothers that become Iron Phi’s every year. This past semester we decided to have a “philanthropy week” and had a different event for everyday of the week dedicated to raise money for ALS research.
ALS is something that us at Indiana Mu take very seriously and we intend to keep it that way. We, as brothers, will continue to raise awareness and raise money until this fight is over.
The brothers of Indiana Mu had several community service events during 2016 school year. In the Spring, we had two events. Our first one was with the sisters of Phi Mu. We traveled to Camp Atterbury, which is a training base for the Indiana National Guard. At Camp Atterbury, we served lunch to Purple Heart Veterans from all over Indiana. They had come together for the day. While we were there, a few of the veterans began telling us there war stories from Vietnam, Iraq, and Pakistan. The very next day, along with the other fraternities on our campus, we traveled to homes throughout Indianapolis and did yard work for the elderly and those with physical disabilities.
The brothers of Indiana Mu also had two more events during the fall semester. First, we went to Crown Hill Cemetery, the burial site of the 23rd President of the United States and former Phi Delt Benjamin Harrison. There we cleaned his gravesite. This is something Indiana Mu does at least once a year, due to his importance to Phi Delta Theta. A few weeks later, we volunteered at Marian University to help setup a friendly, yet competitive game of basketball. The game was between the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the Indianapolis Fire Department. 2016 was a great year of community involvement from our brothers.
Phi Delta Theta Indiana Mu looks constantly to help the community in any way possible. We will continue to do so in 2017 and many more years to come.
