Delta Lambda Phi is an international social fraternity founded by and for a decidedly nontraditional group: gay, bisexual, and progressive men. For over twenty-five years, Delta Lambda Phi has offered these men the opportunity to lead, to grow, and to form lifelong bonds of friendship with other likeminded men.
Oregon State University is a state college in Corvallis, Oregon. Home to the Beavers, the university prides itself on its impressive influence in scientific discoveries, research, and the diversity of its students. Cory Zimmerman, the first President of the Colony, formed an interested group of men in the fall of 2015 who continued to form connections and build their numbers. At the end of spring 2016, they submitted their colonization petition to the International Organization and on June 26th, 2016, their petition was accepted.
The Oregon State Colony of Delta Lambda Phi was founded on October 22nd, 2016.
