Spring 2020 Recruitment
Welcome to Spring Recruitment for the Chi Psi Fraternity at the University of Georgia. First off, I would like to take this moment to personally welcome you to the best University in the Southeast and be among the first of many to say to you, Go Dawgs! I would also like to commend you on the best decision you’ll make, to attend UGA. Even though you may have already heard it 50 times, the next four years will truly be the best four years of your life. The relationships and bonds that you will create here in Athens will stay with you forever. As a brother of Chi Psi, I have had a unique opportunity to create many bonds. As Brothers of Chi Psi, we take a great deal of pride in our academic performance, our service to the community, our cultivation of elevated friendships, the pursuit of being a true Gentleman, working towards a bright future, and also, having as much fun as we can during the best time of our lives.
As a fraternity, Chi Psi is unique to others because of our rich and exciting history. Established in 1841, we are the oldest social fraternity ever founded in the country. We are also the first fraternity to have a fraternity house; called The Lodge by members of Chi Psi, the first Lodge was established at the University of Michigan in 1845. Chi Psi is also the first fraternity to ever have a traveling leadership consultant and the first to have an educational program supplementing the formal college curriculum. This program, the Program for Excellence, helps our Brothers understand the challenges they face and how to advance their lives intellectually, morally, and socially. The program also assists brothers in their professional maturation by pairing brothers with numerous employers and mentors across the Southeast as well as the entire country.
In addition to a rich history, brothers of Chi Psi also keep one more very important value close to them. That value is fun. As of this past fall, I will have been a brother of Chi Psi. In that time, I have been able to have an amazing time with the fraternity, while also maintaining excellent academic standing. All along the way, I have had the privilege of meeting some of my closest friends and building unbreakable bonds. Whether it’s chilling at The Lodge and relaxing after a long day of classes, or driving up to Pigeon Forge for a fun weekend in the mountains, we try to make the most of the time that we have attending the University of Georgia. In addition to our out of town events, we also boast an exciting calendar each semester filled with themed Sorority Socials, active philanthropy events to benefit our community, brotherhood events, creative and original date nights, themed parties, as well as turning Recruitment into an opportunity to create new friendships and have an awesome time while doing so.
All of this is just a small taste of all that Chi Psi has to offer. All of my brothers as well as myself would like to share even more about our fraternity with you. We are all so excited about the opportunity to show you what we have to offer towards your collegiate years as you begin the best years of your life. If you have any questions about Chi Psi, Spring Recruitment, or my experiences, please do not hesitate to contact me by either my email address or my Personal number below. Additionally, if you have any questions about UGA, Greek Life, or just Athens in general, it would be my pleasure to speak with you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
To Potential Rushees: Please contact us with any questions about rush, Chi Psi, or Greek Life at The University of Georgia.
