Chi Psi, ΧΨ is a fraternity consisting of more than 30 chapters (known as "alphas") at American colleges and universities. It was founded on May 20, 1841, by 10 students at Union College with the idea of emphasizing the fraternal and social principles of a brotherhood. It was the first Greek-letter organization to be founded on these grounds rather than the literary characteristics of the seven existing societies (the earliest of which was Phi Beta Kappa at William & Mary). In addition, Chi Psi was the first fraternity to establish a house, at the University of Michigan in 1845. Image File history File links Bannerwshadow. ...
