Phi Delta Epsilon International Pre-Medical Fraternity
Marist established a chapter of this international fraternity in 1996. Phi Delta Epsilon's mission is to foster and achieve bonding among physicians of high moral character, devoted to education and philanthropy for a lifetime. The Marist chapter is very active in tutoring, volunteer work, judging local science fairs, and helping freshmen science majors acclimate to college. Phi Delta Epsilon sponsors a publication (Phi Delta Epsilon News and Scientific Journal) and maintains a website at www.phide.org; both of these provide information about medical school and the admissions process.
