Kappa Delta Phi (ΚΔΦ), founded in 1900 at Bridgewater State College by Nahum Leonard has moved forward to encompass 30 other campuses. Since the founding of Kappa Delta Phi, it has sought to strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and to seek truths in our professions. We have fulfilled that goal with great success. Our Brothers are leaders in their professions and are located throughout the world. Our active brothers have been admitted into a large family with old traditions and our alumnus have been weathered by wars and the hardships of the world to offer all brothers a better view of the world in which we live. Once a Kappa man Always a Kappa man. We wear our badges with honor. We enjoy the privileges and benefits of Kappa Delta Phi for life. We are blessed with the knowledge that there is always a home to come back to and a large family they can depend on.
The purposes of this fraternity shall be to bring together males of good character who are studying in institutions of higher education and who manifest a keen interest in higher education; to promote the highest ideals and educational practices; to promote a spirit of good citizenship and to seek change in our institution only through duly constituted authority; to actively support the fight against discrimination on the basis of race, color, or creed; and to strengthen and preserve the bonds of brotherhood which link men together working toward a common cause.
Since the beginning of time, men have found it helpful and enjoyable to gather together for many reasons. Lodges and clubs have been found in all walks of life – from the knights of old to the military and political men of today. Fellowship has indeed been one of the basic needs of the individual. Therefore it is only natural for groups of college men to meet together in Greek letter societies.
Since the turn of the century, the increase in fraternities has been rapid, with the total membership of all the fraternities numbering in the millions.
Fraternity men have been, and still are the leaders in colleges and universities. The college fraternity supplements book learning by setting up a proving ground in which the members may practice what they learn in the lecture hall and help themselves become well-rounded individuals.
Kappa Delta Phi is a fraternity interested in higher education, and also encourages social life. As boys grow into men, there is to be found the development of poise, grace, and confidence which are essential to the progress and success of the real professional.
Joining Kappa Delta Phi costs more than money. It costs your time, your effort, loyalty, and cooperation. It has been worth it for thousands of men.
Kappa Delta Phi Fraternity serves as an effective recreational outlet in contributing to the four years of educational experience.
