ABOUT US

 

ACTIVE CHAPTER

Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity's Alpha Pi chapter at Penn State was founded on October 6, 1991.  We participate in campus-wide events like THON and Homecoming while also maintaining a thriving social atmosphere within our Brotherhood such as tailgates, formals and more.  Our social, scholarship, and service chairs organize events like cultural dinner nights, intramural sports, guest speakers, nursing home visits, and animal shelter volunteering. Our events reflect the passions of our diverse Brotherhood and can vary from simple dining hall dinners to skilled brothers showcasing their talents for the chapter. We are a large and growing Fraternity, and there are many opportunities for individual leadership and personal development through our committee chair and executive board positions.
