Phi Delta Chi is the first Professional Co-Ed Pharmacy Fraternity ever established. Founded November 2, 1883 at the University of Michigan by Albert Benjamin Prescott, the original Alpha Chapter began with 11 Brothers. As of today, there are over 89 chapters chartered in colleges and universities nationwide with over 66,000 Brothers in all.
As a professional fraternity, Phi Delta Chi steadfastly stands behind the advancement of the science of pharmacy and its allied interests. As a fraternity, the equal treatment of each other in terms of trust and respect is highly valued as our chief objective is to promote a strong fraternal bond among all of the Brothers. Furthermore, Phi Delta Chi does not promote hazing to anyone who pledges to become a Brother. After all, Phi Dex Brothers are and will always be: "Brothers for Life."
The Beta Nu chapter of Phi Delta Chi here at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey was founded on May 2, 1992. The chartering Alpha Class consists of 32 Brothers, and today there are over 70 active Brothers at the Beta Nu chapter. In total, over 380 men and women call themselves Brothers of the Beta Nu chapter.
