The founders of Phi Delta Sigma Fraternity first crossed paths as members of Interest Group of Maryland (I.G.M), whose main goal was to bring a new fraternity to the University of Maryland at College Park. Upon socializing and networking with many other organizations including the Greek community, they gained knowledge as well as experience regarding Greek life, leadership, and philanthropy. Unfortunately, due to a conflict of interest among the members, I.G.M. disbanded in the fall semester of 2006.
However, Dominick Pham, Dennis Nguyen, Eugene Chuang, Dennie Park, Michael Gu, Spencer Nguyen, and Patrick Kwon still had a passion to bring a fraternity on campus by forming their own brotherhood. Taking what they learned throughout the two years of I.G.M. and incorporating what they viewed was most important about the bonds of brotherhood.
