Alphas and colleges

Chi Psi has always employed a conservative approach to growth. The Fraternity has extended our Brotherhood to only 49 campuses since the founding in 1841. Our extension philosophy has helped to create an eclectic mix of Alphas (chapters) at the preeminent colleges and universities within the United States. Listed below are the active and dormant Alphas of Chi Psi.  For more information about a particular Alpha, please visit the Alpha's local website, contact the #1 (President), or the Chi Psi Central Office.
