Graduate relations is one of the ideals that has become a part of Phi Gamma Delta’s identity. The practice of engaging local graduates and graduates from your chapter creates an opportunity to live our motto, “Not for College Days Alone!” Graduate brother engagement is most commonly seen through the annual Frank Norris Pig Dinner. However, there are several other ways to engage the brothers around you.
