Delta Psi Delta fraternity in many ways represents the “power of a small college” that Linfield stands for. As the oldest local fraternity in the Pacific Northwest, Delta has been a cornerstone of the Linfield community since its establishment in 1904. Our small and very close brotherhood offers driven young men a chance to develop themselves comfortably and competitively among peers. We are here to learn that lesson which the world so desperately needs to learn: how to live in community with others.
We look for people with insatiable curiosity and the desire to delve into a deep engagement with a limitless range of topics for the betterment of intellectual development, boisterous banter, and personal social growth. We're interested in recruiting men with great character and interesting personalities. We like to inspire and cultivate diversity in our members from ethnic background, to career interests, majors, hobbies, or religious beliefs, and we believe Delta to be a place for all individuals actively participating in the Linfield community. We also provide merit based scholarship opportunities for our members.
We host an annual community Haunted House event, where we partner with Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and Yamhill County Action Partnership to raise funds and food donations for YCAP. As part of our "Sustainaternity" goal, we have partnered with ZeroWaste McMinnville, Linfield Garden, and Duncan Reid (Linfield's Sustainability Coordinator and Delta's faculty advisor).
If you ever see a Delta member, we welcome spontaneous random conversations or a warm "Hello!". We believe learning starts with curiosity and critical thinking is piqued through engaging in conversation and collaboration. Together we can seize Linfield's Motto: "The Power of a Small College."
