This campaign will broaden awareness about domestic violence on campuses and in communities. It will also raise funds for local domestic violence agencies that provide essential services to victims in their areas. Visit our Fraternities4Family page to learn more.
During the month of April, the fraternities at five North Carolina Universities listed on the right will compete to raise the most funds.
We need your help to make this a success! Spread the word by sharing a link using #fraternities4family so others can read about it, too. Your donations will make an important difference to victims who need support for a safe start to new lives.

The Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta, also known as Fiji or Phi Gam, has 126 chapters and 18 colonies at the foremost colleges and universities of the United States and Canada. The Fraternity was founded at Jefferson College in 1848. Phi Gamma Delta offers much to our members through leadership development, educational programs, and lifelong friendships.
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.

The Nu Sigma Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta has experienced great success in its young existence on NC State’s campus. Since the chapter received its charter in 2002, Nu Sigma has grown in numbers and impact. The chapter has won the fraternity of the year award twice. Most recently the chapter won the Caldwell Cup, the award given to the best Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapter, in the fall of 2013. The chapter also received the honor of being named Intramural Champions during the 2012-2013 academic year.
Nu Sigma is experiencing some of its best results in terms of brotherhood, recruitment, and chapter activities. The chapter has reached 45 members and is looking to continue sustainable growth. The chapter moved into its new home on Greek Court in the spring of 2014 and is excited to be more engrained in the Greek community of NC State.
