Founded at the University of Central Missouri on February 14, 1916 by Dr. Eldo L. Hendricks, Dr. Claude A. Phillips, and Dr. Clarence H. McClure, Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity (ΦΣΠ) is a co-educational fraternity open to undergraduate students attending four-year colleges and universities across the United States. We have over 200 Chapters nationally and our purpose is to bring together some of the brightest and most motivated students to work together in a spirit of excellence. Zeta Alpha Chapter (founded April 3, 2010) is located at UC San Diego. The Chapter has four founders: Kathryn Lieber, Natasha Best, Hana Lee, and Martin Kwok. We have three ideals, known as the Tripod that our Fraternity was founded upon: scholarship, leadership, and fellowship. More information can be found on the national website, here http://www.phisigmapi.org
Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity aims to promote the acquisition and dissemination of information and knowledge through scholarship, the application of professional skills and the fostering of leadership qualities by promoting and advancing the welfare of humanity. and the fostering of non-discriminatory, fraternal fellowship within our ranks.
The weight of our fraternity lies atop these three ideals - scholarship, leadership, and fellowship. Together, we term this "The Tripod" of Phi Sigma Pi. Each leg is equally important to support our fraternal institute.
Phi Sigma Pi is the ONLY National Honor Fraternity in existence.
We are NOT an honor society.
We are NOT a service organization.
We are NOT a social fraternity.
We ARE a unique organization that gives you the best of all of the above.
