Scholarship is of the utmost importance at the Lambda Iota Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta. We firmly believe that the pursuit of knowledge is the primary responsibility for college men like ourselves. Scholarship is emphasized thoroughly within our chapter. This unique focus on academic excellence has resulted in outstanding personal and chapter-wide achievements.
At Purdue University, the Lambda Iota Fijis have finished in the top ten out of all 41 fraternities on campus for the past 25 consecutive semesters. Throughout this prosperous juncture, Lambda Iota has eclipsed the all-campus average each semester. And we are continuously striving to improve. In the Fall semester of 2009, Lambda Iota earned an impressive 3.01 GPA placing us 4th out of all fraternities. Our new members placed first among all fraternities with a 3.15 GPA. Our goal is to claim first place on campus in the very near future.
