Since the chapter was founded, our members have consistently placed a strong
emphasis on campus involvement--basically, doing our part to help
Mississippi State University continue its time honored tradition of impeccable
service and hospitality. As a result, a number of our members have been
honored with the university's most prestigious awards for their commitment to
the university, the community, the Greek system, and fellow students.
Listed below are a few of those awards received and important positions
currently or recently held by
men of Phi Delta Theta.

Interfraternity Council Executive Board
(President, Rush Chair)
Our members have been regularly selected to lead the
Interfraternity Council, the governing council of fraternities at Mississippi
State. Phi Delta Theta men have been often elected by their fellow MSU Greeks
to serve a number of executive offices including two IFC Presidents in
back-to-back terms, two Rush Chairmen,
two Corinthian Editors, Treasurer, Public Relations Chairman, and Internet Chairman. Our members are also regularly
chosen to facilitate formal rush by serving as Rush Counselors.
Student Association Attorney General
Two of our members have been elected at large
by the student body to serve as Attorney General of the Student Association, one
of only a handful of elected executive positions within the student government
organization. The Attorney General is responsible for interpretation of
the Student Association Constitution and making recommendations to the executive
council and the senate.
Student Association President's Cabinet
Scores of our members, over the years, have been
hand-selected to serve on the Student Association President's Cabinet.
Each of these cabinet members work directly with the President. Cabinet
members advise the President on possible programs and policy decisions, as well
as coordinate their own individual programs. Cabinet members also choose a
committee to work under them and hold regular committee meetings to further the
purpose of the Student Association.
Senior Class President
Elected at large by graduating seniors, the class
president is an executive member of the Student Association (the student
government body at Mississippi State), serves a full year term and acts both as
an advocate and a liaison between the university administration and the senior
class. The class president also is responsible for coordinating a senior
class gift--a special memorial from the graduating class to the university.
Greek Man of the Year
Though our chapter has only been in existence for 14
years, Phi Delta Theta men have twice been elected as Greek Man of the
Year. This highest honor is given by the Interfraternity Council to the
fraternity man who has made the most positive impact on the Greek system through
his extensive involvement and unparalleled service to the Greek community.
Elected by the student body at large and honored
during the halftime ceremony at the homecoming game, Mr. MSU is the most
prestigious honor a Mississippi State student can receive. This student is
selected based on his service to the university community, popularity among his
fellow students, and undying school spirit. Mr. MSU is the definition of
what all male students at Mississippi State should aspire to be. Phi Delta
Theta is extremely proud to have one of our members chosen for such an important
The Mississippi State
University Roadrunners is the group that aids the Office of Enrollment Services
in recruiting students to the university. These 82 student recruiters give
campus tours, write and call prospective students personally, and help host
student recruiting events on campus. Roadrunners are selected by the
Office of Enrollment Services and Phi Delta Theta is proud to have our members
consistently selected to represent the university to prospective students and
their families in this capacity.
Orientation Leaders are
current Mississippi State students trained to guide new students through the
transition process from high school to college. The university's one- and
two-day programs are led by these students who are available to provide
information, answer questions, and welcome incoming students to the
university. Orientation Leaders are selected by the Office of Enrollment
Services and, throughout the years, many Phi Delta Theta men have been chosen to
be a part of this important organization.
