Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity was founded in 1914 at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York, by a group of men with Italian roots. While initially founded as a social society, it evolved into one of the most unique of American college fraternities. It has retained its focus by attracting select men at some of the best colleges and universities in the United States. A majority of Alpha Phi Delta men and Chapters are campus leaders. Alpha Phi Delta experiences has helped many of its nearly 20,000 lifelong members to become top leaders in all facets of life.
