Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) House
The Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) house along with the other houses located on SMU Boulevard has become a staple of SMU’s famed “Frat Row.” The house located at the western end of the street adjacent to the Moody parking garage. The house serves to house the functions and activities of Phi Gamma Delta as well as serving the campus providing on-campus student housing for its members. The house has been renovated following the destruction of nearly half of it in a fire in the early 1990s that saw the chapter lose many of its artifacts and trophies.
The Delta Tau Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta was installed at Southern Methodist University in December of 1948. The establishment of the chapter at the University was spearheaded by the Dallas Graduate Chapter. The graduates, Donald S. Newbury (Pennsylvania State '40) and H. Clark Etheridge (Texas '34), were accompanied by the undergraduate petitioners, Robert V. Lentz (Alabama '48, Southern Methodist '50), Arthur M. Baker (Southern Methodist '50) and John Edward May (Southern Methodist '50). The charter was granted to the Chapter at the 100th Ekklesia held in Pittsburgh. Notable alumni include Payne Stewart (Southern Methodist '79), former professional golfer and winner of the 1991 and 1999 U.S. Open Championships as well as the 1989 PGA Championship.
