“It only takes a few weeks to pledge
but it takes a Lifetime to be a Brother”

That phrase is heard time and time again within the Brotherhood of Iota Phi Theta and it is one of our rallying points. Although it is slightly outdated by the fact that Iota Phi Theta has moved away from “pledging” to a “Brotherhood Intake Process”, the spirit is still the same.

Iota Phi Theta is more than a Fraternity, it is a concept … a way of life. By joining Iota Phi Theta, you are agreeing to always strive for excellence in all facets of your life – academically, professionally, and personally. Furthermore, you are committing to consistently strive to be the best despite any and all obstacles.
