Chapter History

Early Years

The Alpha Epsilon Chapter was one of several expansion efforts during the late 1980s. Despite the presence of two long standing organizations (Abbe Society and Friars Society) with similar ideals on campus, Phi Sigma Pi developed its own niche and soon rivaled other campus organizations in size and familiarity. Much of the success was due to the dedication of the Founding members and the Chapter's former Advisor, Dr. Melissa Cichowicz (nee Betz).

The Active Chapter

The Chapter currently has over 80 members. The most recent initiate class was the Beta Nu class inducted in Fall 2018.
