Phi Kappa Psi -
One hundred and sixty-two years ago, William Henry Letterman and Charles Page Thomas Moore, two students at Jefferson College in foothills of Western Pennsylvania, were nursing and watching over their stricken friends during an epidemic of typhoid fever at the college. Through the long night vigils, the two decided that they should establish a group that was founded upon the great joy they received from selflessly helping others. They believed that unless driven by a proper love for and service to mankind, an educated man is too apt to shrink from the human race, a waste of his talents. The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity engages men of integrity, further develops their intellect and enhances community involvement. With a legacy built on acceptance and trust, each brother realizes his highest potential through a lifelong experience of service and excellence.
