Michigan Alpha Chapter History

Phi Kappa Psi: Michigan Alpha

Our Vision

Michigan Alpha is a brotherhood of honorable men, courteous and cultured, who pledge throughout their lives to be generous, compassionate, and loyal comrades. We strive manfully for intellectual, moral and spiritual excellence; to help and forgive our Brother; and to give aid and sympathy to all who are less fortunate; and we discharge promptly all debts.

Each Member works to strengthen their character and deepen their integrity; to counsel and guide their Brothers who stray from their obligations; to respect and emulate those who practice moderation in their manners and morals; to be ever mindful that loyalty to this Fraternity should not weaken loyalty to my college, but rather increase devotion to it, to my country, and to my God.

We conduct ourselves to bring respect and honor, not to ourselves alone or to our fraternity, but to the spirit of all fraternities.

Our Mission

Michigan Alpha engages men of integrity, further develops their intellect and enhances their community involvement. With a legacy built on acceptance and trust, each brother realizes his highest potential through a lifelong experience of service and excellence.
