The Chi Psi Central Office is the national headquarters of Chi Psi, and it is housed in our newly-owned building in Nashville, Jeffrey Hall.
The Central Office acts as a contact center for undergraduates and alumni, handling matters from new member services to scheduling leadership programs. Contact the Central Office about pledge notifications, initiation processing, pledge button orders, badge orders and Chi Psi Story orders. The CO should also be contacted for educational materials, scholarship applications, alumni lists, Convention information and merchandise.
Creation of the Central Office headquarters dates back to 1913, when the Convention established the office to take on the details of administering Chi Psi Fraternity. The Central Office started in New York City, also serving as a general meeting place during World War I for Chi Psis in the service who were traveling through the area. It was moved to Madison, Wisconsin, for two years, then to a long-term home in Ann Arbor, Michigan, for 55 years, then for stops in Olympia Fields, Illinois, and Hendersonville, Tennessee. In late 2006, Chi Psi moved into its permanent home Jeffrey Hall in Nashville, Tennessee.
