As a result, Psi Upsilon was enriched by the addition of outstanding chapters, some with local traditions and ceremonies so impressive that they were adopted by the fraternity as a whole.
In 1837 Psi Upsilon began its expansion with the founding of the Delta chapter at the City University of the City of New York (now New York University).
Since 1949, Psi Upsilon has added thirteen chapters to its roll, and is at present actively and aggressively pursuing expansion to the finest schools in the United States and Canada.
