On Sunday September 20, 2009, Phi Kappa Psi welcomed a new colony at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio to our brotherhood. Twelve young men, desiring to become part of a stronger, national fraternity, contacted Director of Expansion, Nicholas Reed, in June and after several months of discussion, the Executive Council decided to add the group to Phi Kappa Psi.
The colony is leaving behind over fifty years of existence as a local fraternity on the Capital University Campus. "We are excited to be setting the bar for fraternities at Capital University; we're moving in a new direction to force positive change on our campus" said colony President, Adam Miller. The group has the distinction of being the first national fraternity on campus; however, Alpha Sigma Phi is currently building a group on campus as well.
University was founded in 1830 in Bexley, Ohio, which exists within Columbus, Ohio. The University is one of the largest Lutheran affiliated schools in North America. "Phi Psi is proud to bring its tradition of excellence to a school with such an impressive history" added Director of Expansion, Nicholas Reed.
