Welcome to the Ole Miss Phi Delta Theta Parents Club!

A mother’s club was organized in 1988 in an effort to bring a closer bond between all Phi Delt parents and to cooperate in assisting our sons with projects and activities. It has evolved over the years to become a true community of parents and advisors who offer a support system for our Phis and for each other. A spin-off of the Parents Club is our Flower Guild, which assists with decorating the house and party venues for special events and holidays.

We promote the merits of fraternity life by:

  • volunteering in the kitchen and providing extra meals and snacks during rush and exam weeks;

  • highlighting individual service and academic accomplishments and offering support where needed;

  • communicating with each other and our boys;

  • celebrating newfound brotherhood with special parties (Fall Tailgate, Parents Weekend, etc.); and

  • donating toward the Phi Delta Theta House upgrades

Membership of $100 per couple/$50 per individual is collected with dues each semester. All money is used for our boys and chapter. Past donations to the House have included new furniture, new flooring, replacing damaged gaming equipment and upgrading holiday decorations. We also provide gifts to our House Director from time to time.
