Phi Kappa Psi to Expand at West Virginia University

Indianapolis, June 29, 2016 - Phi Kappa Psi was recently invited to start a colony at West Virginia University in the fall of 2016.

The overwhelming support on this project from alumni and the university has been impressive and Phi Kappa Psi thanks all of you for your hard work. 

"We are very excited to be returning to West Virginia University. This chapter is one of our oldest and most prolific chapters in our Fraternity's history, which makes this expansion a great opportunity," said Director of Expansion, Benny Rohloff.

As part of the established advisory team model, the expansion team will be looking to recruit at least five chapter advisory team members to work with the men. These individuals are not required to be members of Phi Kappa Psi; in fact, non-members are encouraged to inquire into the opportunity. The involvement of these advisors will be critical to creating a chapter culture where student development matters. Anyone interested in becoming an advisor should contact Director of Chapter Advisory Teams, Matt Kifle.

The Fraternity looks forward to establishing a successful colony at WVU this fall. To recommend a current WVU student for the new colony or to learn more about the expansion, please contact Director of Expansion, Benny Rohloff.

*Members of the previous West Virginia chapter will not be permitted to join the new colony and cannot be affiliated with the process. 


The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity is a 501(c)(7) association of men of integrity who strive to develop the individual in his intellect, in his involvement in the community and in his faith. The Fraternity was founded on February 19, 1852 at Jefferson College by William Henry Letterman and Charles Page Thomas Moore.  It currently has 100 chapters across the United States, with over 6,500 undergraduate members and over 80,000 living alumni.
