Phi Kappa Psi's expansion team has added three new colonies this spring. In the spirit of Phi Psi, each of them is unique and committed to excellence. Phi Kappa Psi is extremely proud to bring these new groups into the brotherhood, and wishes them the best of luck as they strive to become chartered chapters of our noble Fraternity.
On January 17th, 2010 Phi Kappa Psi colonized a group of 25 men at Muskingum University in New Concord, OH. The group started as an interest group in the fall of 2009, and through work with headquarters, they flourished and received the positive vote from Greek Council to become a colony in the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. Muskingum University has provided quality academic programs since 1837 and their Fraternity system has produced several prominent figures such as John Glen and Jack Hanna. Phi Psi is proud to join this great tradition.
On February 20th, 2010 Phi Kappa Psi colonized at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, attempting to re-start the New Jersey Gamma chapter. Similar to Muskingum, the group formed as an interest group in the previous semester and under the guidance of local alumni and Phi Psi Headquarters they began holding meetings and completing the necessary requirements to began as a colony on the campus. National Historian Mike McCoy attended their colonization and the young men have expressed their deepest gratitude to his participation. A special thanks also goes out to Erik Abramson, NJ Gamma '92 who has worked with the group since the beginning.
On March 1st, 2010, after a month of recruiting, Phi Kappa Psi has successfully started a colony at UNC-Charlotte. The expansion team's recruitment consultants, Jarrod Williams and Michael Voll, completed another strong Phi Psi expansion, a testament to Phi Psis commitment to starting strong, new colonies. The new colony is made up of young men of all backgrounds, and intends to quickly become the strongest group on campus, raising the standards of all organizations at UNC-C. The local Alumni Association has been extremely supportive of this group, inviting the new colony to their events and aiding as advisors and mentors.
