The Central Office (CO) is the national headquarters of Chi Psi, and it is housed in Jeffrey Hall in Nashville, TN.
The Central Office acts as a contact center for undergraduates and alumni and handles all operational services for Chi Psi. Contact the Central Office about New Member notifications, initiation processing, 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 CO 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, WI, for two years, then to a long-term home in Ann Arbor, MI, for 55 years. It then had stops in Olympia Fields, IL, and Hendersonville, TN. In late 2006, Chi Psi moved into its permanent home in Nashville.
