Members of the Gamma Kappa chapter of Phi Gamma Delta (aka Fiji) unite in brotherhood to help each other further embody the Fraternity’s values: Friendship, Knowledge, Service, Morality and Excellence. 

Throughout the semester, brothers participate in service, social and brotherhood events. From barbecuing before a tailgate, to competing in video gaming tournaments, to sweeping the streets of Golden – groups of brothers do it all!

One of our signature events is our hosting of Monday night dinners, referred to as MND’s. We cook dinner and invite members from the sororities and other fraternities and anyone else on campus who would like to attend to socialize and enjoy free food. MND’s are typically hosted every two weeks.

deia position statement

We here at the Gamma Kappa chapter of Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) strive to create a safe and welcoming community here at Colorado School of Mines. We openly welcome any student into our community regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, origin, or socioeconomic status and aim to make Greek life and campus as a whole an accepting and supportive environment. 

We wholeheartedly believe in the above, but we must address the fact that FIJI is not a co-ed organization. We are allowed to welcome individuals who identify as males, as per our international bylaws; however, we believe that there is no correct or incorrect way to “identify as male.” Gender identity is a complicated phenomenon that is different for each individual, and we wholly welcome transgender and genderqueer individuals who fall under the umbrella of male to become brothers of Phi Gamma Delta. 

When anyone from our chapter along their journey discovers that they are not male, we continue to love and support them as sisters or companions of our fraternity.
