The decision to join a Fraternity is likely one of the biggest and most important decisions a young man will be faced with to date. Many things must be taken into consideration when determining to go Greek, and even more must be taken in choosing the house that fits you best.
This page is dedicated to explaining why thousands have chosen to call Phi Psi home and why thousands will choose to call it home in the future. We pride ourselves in seeking out the best and the brightest.
Why Join Phi Psi?
Academics and Scholarships
Phi Kappa Psi is committed to the academic success of its members; in fact it is our top priority. We exist to compliment and support the academic experience of each member of Phi Kappa Psi. Last semester our chapter maintained an overall GPA of 3.41. Phi Kappa Psi has scholarship programs that include minimum GPA requirements, Freshmen scholarships, study support systems, incentives for improvement and excellence in academics, and general guidance in academic success. Nothing can come close to the value of an older brother there to guide you through the toughest of scholastic challenges.
Furthermore, the Phi Kappa Psi foundation supports members academically by annually offering over $350,000 in scholarships and grants to members of the Fraternity.
Values and Responsibility
When you come to college, your habits are not completely crystallized. You will face four years that will shape your thought process and actions for the rest of your life. The oath Phi Psis take set basic principles of honor, truth and service to others. These principles influence their actions and character for the rest of their lives. Phi Kappa Psi utilizes their collective influence to hold themselves to being men of excellence who behave responsibly. This means that Phi Psi doesn't haze their new members; they obey the law, they act in a manner that brings honor not just to themselves but to Phi Psis everywhere, and they treat women with respect and protect those who cannot defend themselves. That last point is especially true, as we hold ourselves to our founding motto "The Great Joy of Serving Others." Service is at the core of what we do, and it is a big reason why our actions stand out in crowd and attract the best. Holding yourself to a higher standard can be what separates you from the pack during and after college.
Phi Psi provides members with a home away from home. Members have a group of diverse brothers there to pick them up when they are down, support them when they need it and guide them when they stray from the course. Nothing can duplicate the bonds of brotherhood during and after college.

After graduation, networking will play a key role in job searches and future employment opportunities. During your years spent in the chapter, you will develop the interpersonal skills by interacting with the diverse members of the chapter and practicing recruitment of qualified men. At Minnesota Beta we exert a positive influence over members to hold themselves to gentlemanly behavior at all times, thus better preparing their social poise for life after college. Additionally, Phi Kappa Psi offers members an instant network of over 70,000 living members with similar ideals and values. Our Twin Cities Alumni Associations keep members connected and many loyal Phi Psis continue to attend national events for years after graduation.
