1858 – 2008
A SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
AND FOUNDERS DAY BANQUET
FOR ALPHA GAMMA OF CHI PSI
On September 27, 1858, culminating from the spearheading efforts of two Mississippians attending the University of North Carolina, 13 men came together to establish Alpha Gamma of Chi Psi at the University of Mississippi. As with the South in general, Alpha Gamma has endured its share of successes and setbacks over the years. However, its spirit remains intact and its Southern pride and determination to survive, endure, and prevail stands alive and well to this day.
On May 17, 2008, Alpha Gamma of Chi Psi will proudly celebrate its SESQUICENTENNIAL – the 150 year anniversary since that momentous occasion in 1858 when the landscape of fraternal life at the University of Mississippi was changed. This event will also serve as a Founders Day celebration of Chi Psi.
Please make your plans now to join us for this special event. It will occur only once in our lifetime - only once in the lifetime of Alpha Gamma of Chi Psi. Do not miss this opportunity to rekindle the Chi Psi friendships you made while at Ole Miss.
