Chi Psi Madness

#ChiPsiMadness is an annual competition among active Chi Psi Alphas using a March Madness-like bracket. Seeding is based on founding year, and Brothers (and family and friends!) can vote for each Alpha in each match-up all the way from the opening round until the final. Voting takes place across social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Instagram Story). BONUS VOTES can be added to an Alpha's total by gifts to The Chi Psi Educational Trust (see below). This is a friendly competition, but there are prizes for the winning Alpha and the groups that donate the most to the Trust! Scroll down to learn more about #ChiPsiMadness and the 2021 tournament in particular.

How to Earn Bonus Votes:

Make a gift to The Chi Psi Educational Trust to earn bonus votes! On your gift, note that it's for Chi Psi Madness, and for which Alpha(s)! Any gift over $500 will earn one bonus vote per dollar, too. NOTE: Make sure to denote which Alpha you are supporting with your #ChiPsiMadness gift. Otherwise, we will default to the Alpha you attended.

  • Top Individual Donor: The Brother who gives the most (active or alumnus) during the entire competition gets to decide what #23 Sam Bessey does to his hair when he cuts it. He is required to wear the haircut of the donor's choice for one week and share photos! Minimum donation to qualify: $1,700.
