The Phi Delta Theta fraternity recently received its charter back to be recognized as a full chapter again at UND after a two year suspension. The chapter was suspended Fall 2011 after a police informant bought marijuana from one of the members at the time.

The charter for a fraternity is essentially permission to become an active chapter from the fraternity nationals.

On Oct. 10, the chapter held an initiation ceremony for the re-founding members, followed by an installation ceremony and banquet on Oct. 11.

Phi Delta Theta has been at UND since 1913 — when it received it’s original charter from its national headquarters — making it the oldest student organization on campus.
