Shared Values and Ideals: Chi Psi and MBA

In 1998, Nate Greene and Jamie Bradshaw met as 5-year-olds when they played on the same YMCA tee ball team in Nashville, Tennessee.  Little did they know it was the beginning of a lifelong friendship as they continued on as elementary school classmates.  In seventh grade, they transitioned to Montgomery Bell Academy, an all-boys college preparatory school founded in 1867, and met Paul Brazil.  The duo had just become a trio. 

Montgomery Bell Academy, known locally as MBA or "the Hill,” provides a determined balance among academics, athletics, and fine arts and is well known for its motto – "Gentleman, Scholar, Athlete.”  The school is particularly unique in that it features a student-run honor system, which sets the tone for the underlying values of the school.

In 2012, the trio struck out in different directions.  Jamie Bradshaw headed north to Cornell University to play football, Paul Brazil decided to go out west to University of Colorado, and Nate Greene ventured to Sewanee, the University of the South.  Made from the same mold, they each headed into their new environments to explore, make friends, choose a course of study, and possibly consider pledging a fraternity...

Good News from The Chi Psi Educational Trust

Phil Lubik, P '14, and his Dream 4 the Kids
The only way to guarantee yourself failure is if you don’t even try.  That was the mindset that we came into Dream4TK with.  We had a good idea, had the talent to make it possible and just had to follow through and never give up.  Dream4TK is a 1,500 mile bike ride to benefit the Embrace Kids Foundation, but it started as something intangible.  Dream4TK was just a crazy idea that found a way to do something epic that was able to help others.  

The Magic of Humanity - Miller Grant Recipient
My entire life, I have been interested in education both in the United States and across the world. Both of my parents are educators, and after graduating high school I decided to take a gap year to work in three schools in rural Ecuador and eventually started a non-profit initiative to improve both access to and quality of these schools.

Chi Psi's Historic Extension & Growth

During the 2012-2013 academic year Chi Psi began re-colonization efforts at three schools: Wesleyan University, Yale University, and the University of Mississippi. At the 172nd Annual Convention hosted by Alpha Upsilon Delta at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, NC all three groups petitioned for Alpha status and were granted their charters by the Convention body. The chartering of three Alphas in 2013 marks the greatest growth in one year for the fraternity since 1858. This fall the Central Office is conducting initiation ceremonies and chartering banquets at all three Alphas as we welcome over 120 men into the Bonds.

Alpha Tau Delta Celebrates 50 Years of Brotherhood

On April 10, 2014, Alpha Tau Delta Brothers will gather to celebrate fifty years of Chi Psi brotherhood at the University of the South in Sewanee, TN. Founded in 1964, Tau Delta has a founding story unlike most Alphas. In 1961, the 120th Convention authorized a conditional charter to establish an Alpha at Sewanee, though how that would happen was yet to be determined.
