The Chi Phi fraternity, founded in 1824, is the oldest social fraternity in the country. The Eta Chapter was founded at the University of Georgia in 1867, the second fraternity founded on campus. In these 142 years, the Eta Chapter has produced more Governors of the State of Georgia, more presidents of the university, and more captains of the football team than any other

Chi Phi was the second fraternity established at the University of Georgia (1867), and is the oldest social fraternity in the United States (1824). In its historic 155 years at UGA, the Eta Chapter has produced five Governors of the state of Georgia, as well as more captains of the football team and Presidents of the University than any other fraternity. There are 15 buildings on campus named after Chi Phi alumni. The Chi Phi house is the only LEED-certified fraternity house in the entire nation.

Chi Phi’s success is due largely to its strong alumni association and continuing bond of brotherhood. This year promises to be another strong year for Chi Phi. The chapter will continue to be involved in the community with our annual fundraisers and will maintain its position as one of the top fraternities on campus, academically, socially, and philanthropically.

Members of Chi Phi are involved in clubs and organizations across the UGA campus, including the Student Government Association, Inter-Fraternity Council, Corsair Society, Institute for Leadership Advancement (ILA), Student-Managed Investment Fund (SMIF), and Order of Omega. Our philanthropic efforts include annual fundraising basketball tournaments, blood drives, and collaborations with the Backpack Project of Athens. The chapter’s social calendar is packed each year with football gameday tailgates, various themed date nights, socials, and band parties, our Formal in New Orleans, Chi Phi Halloween in the Fall, and LOST Weekend in the Spring.
