Phi Kappa Psi


The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity is an association of men of integrity who strive to develop the individual in his intellect, his involvement in the community and in his faith. The Fraternity was founded on Feb. 19, 1852 at Jefferson College by William Henry Letterman and Charles Page Thomas Moore. It currently has more than 100 chapters across the United States with over 6,500 undergraduate members and over 80,000 living alumni. The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity engages men of integrity, further develops their intellect and enhances community involvement. With a legacy built on acceptance and trust, each brother realizes his highest potential through a lifelong experience of service and excellence. The oath Phi Psis take to the Fraternity’s basic principles of honor, truth and service to others influence these patterns for the rest of their lives. Phi Psi chapters utilize their collective influence to hold themselves to being men of excellence who behave responsibly. This means that Phi Psi chapters don’t haze their new members, they obey the law, they act in a manner that brings honor not just to themselves but to Phi Psis everywhere, they treat women with respect and they protect those who cannot defend themselves. That last point is especially true, as we hold ourselves to our founding motto “The Great Joy of Serving Others.” Service is at the core of what we do, and it is a big reason why our actions stand out in crowd and attract the best. Holding yourself to a higher standard can be what separates you from the pack during and after college.
