The Great Joy of Serving Others
Our motto, “The Great Joy of Serving Others,” is exemplified by Phi Kappa Psi’s commitment to community service. Phi Kappa Psi was founded upon this ideal, and it is our belief that service to one’s community helps develop us as men of integrity and is the greatest compliment to our education.
As a non-profit organization, philanthropy is one of the main focuses here at Phi Psi. We hold two philanthropic events each year (one in the fall and one in the spring) to raise money for the local Boys and Girls Club. Our spring philanthropy is the Phi Psi 500 tricycle race, while our event in the fall varies from year to year. Brothers and new members compete in every sorority philanthropy as well.
Phi Psi brothers also must complete a set amount of community service hours each semester. This includes doing things like volunteering to tutor at schools in the area, helping out with The Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend, and picking up trash around the community. We also complete one community service project a semester. In the past we’ve done sorority clothing drives (with our 2016 drive raking in $5000 worth of clothes) and can drives.
