National Founding: February 19, 1852
Local Founding: 1876
Phi Kappa Psi is a prominent social fraternity founded in 1852 at Jefferson College in Pennsylvania. On a national level, Phi Kappa Psi has a large base of support and the largest endowment fund of any national fraternity. Through the endowment fund, over $250,000 in scholarships are available for deserving brothers in and out of the classroom.
The Georgia Alpha Chapter at UGA was founded on November 20, 1976. Over the past 30 plus years, our chapter has seen many changes, but our brotherhood and reputation have always remained intact as true gentlemen of integrity. As Phi Psi, we offer you a chance to grow as a person while making friends and memories that will last long after your collegiate experience has ended. Each year, our chapter participates in many campus activities and philanthropies such as IM sports during every season, Dance Marathon, UGA Heroes, and Relay for Life.
While we have very successful and active brothers dedicated to the fraternity and campus organizations such as IFC, Order of Omega, and UGA Heroes, our current growth has propelled us to still maintain a full social calendar throughout the fall and spring semesters. In the fall, we celebrate each UGA Football game with an all day tailgate and host our annual Parent's Weekend and Chartering Banquet. In the spring, we travel to a destination in the southeast for our annual Jacqueminot Rose Ball as well as throwing the annual Phi Psi Oasis party, which is one of the biggest parties at UGA. Along with these major events, we have many socials, date nights, and band parties throughout the year.
Phi Psi offers you a change to learn valuable leadership skills and grow academically. Georgia Alpha has always had a strong academic reputation that continues today. On the leadership front, Phi Psi offers a unique experience that is unlike that of any other fraternity. Each year, brothers from around the country travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to attend a leadership academy sponsored Ticketmaster founder and Phi Psi alumnus, Jerry Nelson. All you pay for is the airfare to and from Cabo. All hotel, food, and beverage costs are covered. Many brothers will tell you that their trips to Cabo have been the pinnacle of their experience in Phi Psi and have shaped them for the rest of their lives.
