The University has a special tradition of alumni affinity matched by very few colleges out there. With a relatively young Greek community and a large staff of trained professionals, the Fraternity believes TAMU will provide a place to succeed, creating a successful Phi Kappa Psi chapter.
"I am really excited at this opportunity and look forward to establishing sustained success at TAMU. Part of my job is planning the long-term growth for my beloved Fraternity and this will undoubtedly be a major part of this plan," said Director of Strategic Growth, James Perez.
The plan is to officially expand to the campus this upcoming Fall. The Executive Council, the Phi Kappa Psi Foundation, the Canonsburg Corporation, and local alumni are already planning out a housing feasibility study for the colony. In the meantime, we will begin to search for advisors who can serve on the chapter advisory committee. If you have any interest in being a part of the colonization efforts and you are in relatively close proximity, please contact Director of Strategic Growth, James Perez. An alumni advisor does not have to be a member of the Fraternity. If you know of anyone in the area (regardless of membership status) who would be a great mentor to our men, please contact us.
